Nabeel Khan a protester and a leader of BNM during the protest stated " We may say that 27th is the Balck day of Balochistan's genocide, but every day continues remains a black day for the Baloch community since March 27, 1948. Every day we hear, about enforced disappearances, by the Pakistani Army or the intelligence agencies of Pakistan. The torture and torture of people from the Baloch community continues till today. Thousands of Baloch are missing and thousands of Baloch are martyred by the terrorist state of Pakistan".

Khan further mentioned "the Pakistani state often says that we are feeding the people of Balochistan. They must now know that they have been stealing our land resources from us for ages. Sandak project which is one of the biggest mines and reserves in Pakistan. Through that project, they have been extracting every gram of gold, copper and other land resource from Balochistan. Additionally, they have been taking away our gas reserves in Sui, and giving them to the elitists of Pakistani Punjab. And the people from where the entire Pakistan is getting their gas are deprived of any benefit of that gas. Hence, you are not feeding us we are feeding you." (ANI)
