Pakistan army committing genocide in Balochistan: Imran Khan

An old video of Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan is doing the rounds on social media in which he's proclaiming that Pakistan army is committing genocide in Balochistan.

"The army is bombing its own people in Balochistan. How can you bomb women and children. Just think of the immorality of this act. The extra-judicial killings are going on and their economy has been destroyed," he's seen as saying.

In the same video, he talks about the massacre perpetrated by the army in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) in 1971. "I was a firm supporter of the army back then and stood by our brave soldiers. But only after three years, we got to know that army butchered civilians, including women and children. We're doing exactly the same thing in Balochistan," he said.

This video is from the time when Imran had not become the PM of Pakistan. Since then, he has changed the rhetoric and often blames India for spreading unrest in Balochistan.
