PDM leader Owais Noorani peddles Indian narrative at Quetta rally
QUETTA: Jamiat Ulema-i-Pakistan (JUP) leader Maulana Shah Owais Noorani on Sunday faced criticism from netizens for peddling the Indian narrative regarding Balochistan over his remarks during the PDM rally in Quetta, ARY NEWS reported.
“We want Balochistan as an independent state,” Maulana Owais Noorani could be heard as saying during the PDM rally in a viral video.
“Today Balochistan looks like an underdeveloped area of the country,” he said in his speech at the gathering which was also addressed by top opposition leaders including Maryam Nawaz, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, and Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
Federal Minister for Communications Murad Saeed while responding to the remarks of the PDM leader Owais Noorani said that they were advancing the agenda of India’s National Security Adviser Ajit Doval.
“They are trying to create divisions within the country,” he said and warned those who are supporting the opposition alliance without knowing their agenda of a grand game for greater Punjab.
“What they have been doing to fuel regional sentiments in Sindh, Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is evident from these speeches,” Murad Saeed said and added that they should speak for the rights of the provinces but should not attack the ideology of Pakistan.
He further said that both Israel and India are conspiring against Pakistan, however, the world has now recognized the state-sponsored terrorism by India.
