The Balochistan Conundrum
This Land of the Pure has had a tumultuous history. It saw the tragic episode of the dismemberment of East Pakistan. However, unfortunately, we the Pakistani nation, have not learnt any lesson from this national tragedy. Our rulers, both civilian and military, have had the same authoritarian attitude towards Balochistan as they had towards the then-East Pakistan (today’s Bangladesh). Indeed, there are centrifugal forces active in the province, but it is the state itself which has, time and again, provided opportunities the enemies have taken advantage of. The callous attitude and apathy of the centre towards the sufferings of Baloch have only crystallized further the differences. Had one have a bird’s eye view of the history, one would understand why Balochistan is a simmering volcano today.
