I dont know if this particular aspect of the issue has been discussed. Nevertheless, I am posting this.
So you think the coverage of the Pakistani media and BBC/BBC-URDU is fair? Like i frequently visit BBCUrdu and they hardly miss any 'statement' that comes out of any lost Baloch rebels mouth. Clearly, they (these few rebels) dont have the mandate to speak for whole of Baluchistan as they NEVER won sweepingly in the province in history, they hardly represent their tribes, but being rich they are able to finance the trouble there and get the media attention.
Here, now at bbc.co.uk/urdu/ they are trying make a leader out of grandson of bugti by yesterday posting his picture and interview on their frontage, as otherwise who would listen to this scum who is living in Switzerland and speaking for all Balochis. I know a lot of Pakistanis who use internet do actually read this site and I have heard opinions from Pakistanis which actually appear to have inspiration and 'knowledge' from this site.
The irony is those there claim to speak for the poor there who are maybe richer than many Pakistani rich people. Clearly, it is not about funding at the same time when in last 10 year there have been more funds allocated to Baluchistan than other provinces, it is about they (a bunch of sardars who created trouble from beginning) do not want to live with Pakistan. Currently this dys-functional is busy in giving them amnesties for slaughtering any non-Baluchis in Baluchistan.
Now for the enemies of Pakistan its fine, but would this make sense for any patriotic Pakistani to help these rebels by giving them a opportunity to spread their propaganda?
And for lord's sake do not compare it with Bangladesh because :-
- There is no one single party in Baluchistan who has sweepingly won and now wants separation
- There is no ethnic hatred otherwise between baluchi and others in the country.
- The population of ethnic baluchis is appr. 5 million out of 180 million Pakistan
- Baluchistan is not 2000 km away from west Pakistan and there is no India bordering Baluchistan who can help to make a decisive victory to these scums.
