Media reports and statements made by responsible parties have confirmed that a discussion on the various issues contributing to unrest in Balochistan and causing anxieties to the civil society was banned.

 

Whenever we Pakistanis start to think that our democracy is gaining ground, however slowly, Balochistan appears in our peripheral vision and brings us back to earth.
