Education Prospects In Balochistan

thumbnail imageThe challenges confronting Dr. Malik Baloch’s government in the largest and most troubled province of Balochistan, are both great in number and magnitude. However, only a few of these issues get space in the mainstream national electronic and print media. Some of the grave problems besetting the province either get only a passing mention or go unreported altogether.

Narrative of silence and deception

A Jirga is normally ‘convened’ not ‘taken’ to a place. However, since the enraged nationalist leaders are currently living in exile, the head of the provincial government plans to send a delegation of tribal notables and influential political figures to Europe to negotiate with them.

Is Pakistan a Failing State?

thumbnail imageIt’s decision time for Pakistan. Because we know what happens to people who stay in the middle of the road – they get run over.

The shrinking space for pluralism in Balochistan

thumbnail imageAs proven over time, the use of outlawed proxies for short-lived gains is a dangerous and self-defeating strategy. Its deployment in Balochistan may aid in temporarily curbing the nationalist movement currently underway, but the blow back will be felt far beyond the borders of Balochistan.
