بلوچ کو ان کے حقوق نہ دینے کیلئے ریاست کی طرف سے بہانے تراشنے کی ایک طویل تاریخ ہے، ہر چند کہ بھیڑیے اور بھیڑ کی حکایت کی طرح، آخر کار انہیں کسی بہانے کی ضرورت نہیں

There is a long history of state-fabricated excuses to deny the Baloch their rights, albeit like the wolf and lamb fable, they eventually do not need any excuse
The new prime minister (PM) has the age-old agenda of suppressing Baloch aspirations with brute force as his topmost priority and his statements are a dead giveaway of the impending crackdown that people in Balochistan may soon experience. At a two-day National Workshop on ‘Balochistan Situation: Perceptions and Realities — the Way Forward,’ at the military-run National Defence University (NDU) in Islamabad, he said — as was appropriate for the venue and the organisers — that if the ‘unrest in small pockets’ was not quelled immediately, it might spill over into other areas. He vowed to eliminate the ‘handful of elements’ who were destabilising Balochistan. His pronouncements are ominous portents of the intensification of the crackdown on the Baloch, who have been relentlessly pursued since 1948. Unsurprisingly, the attendees from Balochistan at the NDU were mostly those who have always openly or tacitly seconded, supported and lauded the atrocities against the Baloch. The way forward at the NDU, it seems, is the use of untrammeled force against the Baloch.
