Pakistani community in Russia has been celebrating defection of Dr. Juma Khan, a Baloch leader from the militants of Balochistan. The community has held receptions in his honour. Following is an interview of Dr. Juma Khan given to Pakistan Observer:
Dr. Jumma Marri Baloch was one of the most central leaders of the Baloch independence movement which for decades had sought to turn Pakistan’s large south-western province into an entity separate from the rest of Pakistan. Recently, at an event celebrating Pakistan’s Unity Day in Moscow, Dr. Jumma Marri Baloch formally renounced separatism and publicly embraced a mutually
inclusive Baloch-Pakistani identity.
