Lahore, July 13 (ANI): A well known editor of a Pakistani newspaper has accused New Delhi of fanning unrest in Balochistan.

During a special programme on a private television channel, Daily Times Editor-in-Chief Najam Sethi blamed India for causing disturbances in Balochistan, and asked Islamabad to strongly protest against it.

"There is no doubt that India is involved in the unrest in Balochistan," Sethi said.

Sethi also said that if New Delhi has any evidence against Jamaat-ud-Daawa chief Hafiz Saeed, then it should share this with Islamabad.

He said India did not have the support of other countries in the region.

"All the countries of the region are against India at present because it had initiated conflicts with all of them," The Daily Times quoted Sethi, as saying.

Commenting on the proposed meeting between Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani with his Indian counterpart Dr. Manmohan Singh on the margins of the XVth NAM summit in Sharm-el-Sheikh on July 16, he said high hopes were tied to it.

He urged the leadership of both countries to change their mindsets and resolve all pending issues.

"The countries should renounce their traditional, confrontational attitudes and move towards dialogue to resolve their issues," he said. (ANI)
