Indian Role in Balochistan
The Indian RAW is active in Balochistan for years. Further, it has been engaging the disgruntled elements in the province to wage war against the federation.
For this, India uses proxies in Balochistan. These include Baloch nationals living abroad in Western countries. Moreover, they also create a narrative against the Pakistani State to infect the minds of youth against the country. India has been employing a similar pattern earlier in Bangladesh as well.
Earlier, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stated that his country was involved in separation of East Pakistan. He commented that India supported the creation of Bangladesh through overt and covert means in 1971.
