...American historian Howard Zinn explains it very eloquently and forcefully. He says, “Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders… Historically, the most terrible things – war, genocide, and slavery – have resulted not from disobedience, but from obedience and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty.
The state desperately wants to change the prevailing cultural and historical Baloch ethos of tolerance and secularism in Balochistan through religious organisations
There certainly is a motive behind this obsession with being elected; there is a lot at stake in monetary gains and prestige
Little do political parties in Balochistan realise that the noose of disaster, devastation and desolation will tighten around the neck of the people
People view these atrocities disinterestedly because the Baloch missing and dead have been relegated to merely statistical status
Saindak and Gwadar are the microcosm of all that is wrong in Balochistan; the locals are left out of the benefits
