Editorial: The End of “Pakistan Day” in Balochistan?

It seems that the forced marriage between Balochistan and Pakistan is not working anymore. When countries reach such a critical stage when their citizens assertively whine about state-sponsored torture and brutality, the best thing for the governments in such circumstances is to ensure damage control.
In Balochistan’s context, the government could have saved its face provided that it had agreed that March 23rd was not the right time to celebrate the Pakistan Day in a province where a freedom movement has been gaining momentum. It is not as if that the government functionaries did not know the facts and the ground situation. In fact, all these facts were deliberately kept aside to please the ego of an arrogant military.
