ترجمہ: لطیف بلیدی

بلوچ کو ایک سے زائد مشکلات کا سامنا ہے۔ ان کی آبادی اتنی کم ہے کہ وہ پاکستان کی قومی سیاست کے اعداد و شمار پر اثرانداز نہیں ہوسکتے، اگرچہ ان کا صوبہ اسٹراٹیجک اعتبار سے اہمیت کے حامل علاقے کا 45 فیصد ہے۔ وسائل سے مالا مال ہونے کے باوجود وہ پاکستان میں سب سے زیادہ غریب اور محروم ہیں۔ اسلام آباد اور راولپنڈی صرف ان بے پناہ قدرتی وسائل میں دلچسپی رکھتے ہیں جو بلوچ کے پاس ہیں لیکن انہیں ان کے ثمرات سے مستفید ہونے کی اجازت نہیں ہے۔
