Brahumdagh Bugti, a prominent Baloch leader wished Bangladesh on their “Victory Day” and hoped that Balochistan will also become independent from Pakistan's tyranny soon. Bugti, who is the president of the Baloch Republican Party, tweeted out his wish on Saturday. In the tweet, he wrote, "Happy Victory Day to the people of Bangladesh. They won their freedom from the tyrant state of Pakistan through brave struggle and sacrifices. The Baloch nation longs for the same victory and we hope to achieve it soon."Both India and Bangladesh celebrate December 16 as “Vijay Diwas” and “Victory Day” respectively every year to celebrate their victory over Pakistan in the 1971 Liberation War, which led to the birth of Bangladesh. People in Pakistan's Balochistan province have been demanding independence for many years, citing oppressive rule. Pakistani authorities allegedly use enforced disappearances and extra-judicial killings to suppress their struggle.
