This refers to the letter of Bashir Israr Khan of Lahore (TheNation Jan 02) headlined above, advising me to come out of provincialism for pleading the case of Balochistan despite the fact that Balochistan is not my native province. This is not a new allegation in Pakistan if we see the history of country. When people of East Pakistan (56 per cent majority population) demanded restoration of their basic rights, such a lobby also advised them to come out from provincialism and labeled them as anti-Pakistan. A similar case was made for the people of Sindh, Balochistan and KP. In fact, there is a sinister lobby that treats people of the rest of provinces as 'provincialsts because they are not ready to learn lesson from past. This is a dangerous trend. In this case Mr Khan has advised me to come out from provincialism despite the fact that I am pleading the case of another province instead of my native province. I advise such people to abandon such efforts now for the better future of the county. They must adopt the policy of live and let live. MOHAMMAD KHAN SIAL, Karachi, January 8.
