There is no doubt that all of these nationalist parties are not interested in Pakistan. So basically, they have to be banned because if we go about meeting all their demands, we would end up losing Pakistan itself. If one calculates how many seats these separatist parties have in Senate, National Assembly and all the four provincial assemblies, it will be found that they represent a very thin minority and yet, almost as if on gunpoint, they are pushing the majority in Reza Rabbani Committee to succumb to their outlandish demands. Once Islamabad agrees to these anti state elements, there would be no reversal and nothing would stop the process of disintegration. The history would heap curses on Rabbani, PPP and Islamabad till the doomsday. -ZAFAR ISRAR, Karachi, March 2.
