Unending distress in Balochistan

There have been so many cases of such killings over the past several months that it is difficult to keep a count of them. Respected human rights groups, including the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, have been pointing an accusatory finger at the agencies. Ironically enough, bodies of the Baloch dissidents arrested by armed men have been appearing with greater frequency than before, ever since the Balochistan High Court started taking notice of 'enforced disappearances'. Use of force in situations like the one prevailing in Balochistan has never helped achieve the desired results. If anything, it reinforces a people's sense of victimhood, strengthening their resolve to fight on.
