No doubt, Balochistan is half of Pakistan but the attitude of our past rulers towards Balochistan has created a crisis in that province. My request to our present leadership is that please do not feel comfortable by having a few Sardars on your side. The government needs to attend to issues of justice and welfare of the common man. The PM is requested to please pay special attention to issues of Balochistan. Force is not the answer, rather the issues have to be dealt with politically. -LT COL (Retd) AIZAZ HAIDER, Lahore, via e-mail, May 6.
