LAHORE – Jamaat-e-Islami Secretary General Liaqat Baloch has appreciated the Senate protest of the US Congress committee’s interference in Balochistan affairs. “It’s a timely step in the right direction,” a statement issued by Baloch’s office here on Saturday said.

It further said that Balochistan was an internal affair of Pakistan and the US, India or any other country have no right to interfere. However, the killing of the security personnel and the Baloch youth, and sailors, the killings of innocent people under the garb of sectarian clashes, and the killings of Baloch women in Karachi, were serious issues and human rights violations.
