Angry Political figures/landlords are the source of underprivileged balochistan

The federation of Pakistan has always been experiencing deluge in the activities of Baloch nationalists. From the point of view of a federation, this is an extremely disturbing development. The main cause of concern is the transformation of their struggle, from a purely political effort to an armed uprising. There is no doubt that these revolts have a long tradition amongst the Baloch and Pushtun tribes of Pakistan. During the colonial period, such uprisings were suppressed either by initiating a change of tribal leadership, or by offering some incentives in exchange for accepting government's writ. On a number of occasions military campaigns were also undertaken against these tribes. In 1947, the scenario changed and these tribes became a part of the independent state of Pakistan.
The policy of offering incentives to tribal chiefs at the cost of common man has alienated Balochistan with the rest of the federation. The Sardars/Nawabs/Mirs have raised their private armies by using government incentives. While military campaigns are effective in short- term, their achievements have been short-lived. Today everyone in Pakistan feels a sense of urgency to resolve Balochistan issue that has become the concern of interested foreign players. Therefore, in order to pacify armed uprising in Balochistan, there is a need to embrace venues to offer Basic Human Conveniences to the Baloch People, stay assured; this pure intention and its implementation shall forthwith amputate the handlers like INDIA/US and others, around! Who have always been in a fidgety state to destabilize Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
All the Tribal Headsman and their followers should closely be watched for each of their activities, plans and intents, Yet, colonial policies for controlling these tribes is continued by providing them uncountable pleasantness by the state should uncalculatedly and completely be banned.
these are the elements; who suppress and violate the Basic Human Rights of a Common Balochistani with an aim at enjoying the incentives they avail from the Federation; Sad at the part of State being well aware of the fact of such injustice by the Pseudo-Tribal Heads/Nationalists/Politicians have never taken serious steps to control them and their vicious activities, this has been resulting hatred for the State from a common and hopeless Baluchistan. CBMs are essential by the State.

I disagree, but, in the words of old Voltaire, 'I defend your right to say it'.
My diagreement starts with the very notion ubiquitously found in your writing, and that is : Balochistan is the sole responsible of Baloch miseries. You highlighted the selfish role of 'Sardars' and their links with 'foreign hands'.
American philosopher George Santyana has rightly said, "those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it". I wonder while writing above passages, did you give a cursory glance on the reasons of secession of the then East Pakistan.
Despite ransacking the resource-rich land of Balochistan, look at the conditions of those poor people. They do not have access to basic right of 'Life, Liberty, and Property". From their leaders to laymen, people of Balochistan are mutilated, humiliated and killed on a daily basis. Look at the fate of Bugti ! Is this the way to coalesce diverging voices under national flag ? Look at the relentless rising of missing people ! Extra judicial murders of young Balochs !
Meanwhile, when the daughters, sisters,mothers, and wives of those Baloch people resolve to protest peacefully in the capital of this country, they are meted out inhumane responses. My heart shattered when i saw policemen dragging, abusing and arresting those old mothers, who were peacefully recording their protest. What human rights are you talking about ? By snatching young men's future, by insulting honourable daughters and wives, and by putting unjust burden again on those dejected people, what kind of service are you doing to them ?
History shrieks out its lessons but we are not willing to pay heed to them. Security centered foreign policy cornered our country to isolation, security-dominated political and economic policies devastated the already diminished future of this country, and Security-centered Balochistan policy will exacerbate the matter into worse. Let them speak, let them vent out their anger, and let them protest ! Is it too cumbersome ? Is it very difficult ? If state of Pakistan can pardon the attackers of GHQ and Mianwali airbase on the condition of mere 'press-conference', why can not it give this privilege to Baloch 'missing persons'? Only love and justice is the solution and that is what poets, historians and reformers spoke about recurrently in the history of Homo-Sapiens. I wish we pay heed !

Such remarks are often given by those people- majority lahori punjabi- who don't know the names of five districts of Baloachistan and yet have audacity to comment on this critical issue. One can only feel pity for their myopic vision and lack of understanding of this decade old issue. These people's forefathers did the same by blaming Bengali when debacle of separation of Bungal happened. Blochinstan issue is heading the same trajectory what happened in 1971.
