25-year-old Mazdak Dilshad Baloch arrived in India a few months ago. His Canadian passport showed Quetta in Pakistan as his place of birth.
In an exclusive report of Economic Times, Mazdak said: “I was at pain explaining to the immigration authority that I was not a Pakistani. Call me a dog, but not a Pakistani. I am a Baloch. Because of my place of birth, I faced a lot of harassment.”
This is not only the story of Mazdak. Thousands of Baloch have sought asylum in various parts of the world after being hounded by the Pakistan army. Mazdak’s family had to seek asylum in Canada where they reside now. However, Mazdak and his wife are in India in order to create awareness about the Baloch freedom movement.
