JAMMU: Asserting that Balochistan is a very important security concern for India, Union Minister Jitendra Singh today said Pakistan should put an end to "operational atrocities" unleashed by Islamabad in the region.

"Balochistan is a very important security concern for India", Singh told reporters here.

Singh was replying to a question about India's reaction to the atrocities and operational terror by Pakistan on the people of Balochistan.

"You cannot allow your neighbourhood to be on fire because sooner or later it is going to impact you, you cannot build a heaven inside and leave a hell outside," the minister said.

Singh said that it is example of a boundary wall with another house and the other house being constantly in trouble and sooner or later you run a risk of being impacted by it.

He asked Pakistan to put an end to operational atrocities and bring peace in the region.

The minister further said "Therefore, it is also part of our responsibility to safeguard the security concerns of India".

"We have to ensure that Balochistan, as a situation, is peaceful, is normal and there is an end to operational atrocities unleashed by Islamabad," Singh said.
