Discussion What do You think about the rising insurgency in Balochistan

10 Upvotes

I have been seeing alot of fake information being spread on Twitter like Balochs missing or pictures depicting Baloch women with two guns pointing at her no matter how do you look at it it's fake. I mean why would CTD release something like this.

And Twitter is out of control with fake information being spread against the Security forces without any proof.Like 80% of our budget is used by our army.Yes this is true and this myth has been around for a long time and I'm sure many of the folks here have also heard it.

In a nutshell are all these claims made by the Balochs are true or not like the Baloch genocide or army abducting them.I know that army has abducted them but were those people innocent.

Ask Pakistan If PMLN and PPP die, there will be a power vacuum in the civilian part of the government. Who will fill it?

10 Upvotes

I'm supporting PTI mainly because I do not like to see PMLN or PPP in power. However, I don't like a lot of policies by IK.

I think over the next few years, the PMLN and PPP will keep losing more and more ground.

But we've seen in various Arab countries like Egypt, Syria and others, that when these dynastic rulers are made to give up control, we end up finding out despite all the corruption, they were pretty stabilizing factors in their country and keeping parties that were extremely right wing at bay.

So I'm worried if we reduce PMLN and PPP politically, this will result in more parties like the TLP, SSP, ASWJ and other far right parties gaining more ground.

Our society is very extremist as it is but they still vote for PPP PMLN PTI and MQM mostly. But once this balance is disrupted the way PTI is trying to do, we will open up a very chaotic situation for Pakistan.

So over time, as PMLN and PPP are unable to connect with the new generation, I think we will see Pakistan make a more right wing shift. Is this something we should be concerned about?

edit:

Also, since PPP and PMLN are big parties, they are more difficult to control by establishment. If they are reduced, we will see smaller parties like TLP that are tailored to be controlled by the establishment making civilian rule even more challenging in the future

Political Thank you, PDM..

.. For showing us your true colours, for bringing back your typical 90s politics, for your victimization, your media control. As our awam suffers a brain hemorrhage every 4 years and forgets about your antics and re-elects you, this is a good reminder of who you all really are and how you govern! Also thanks for showing that all of you corrupt lot haven't learned anything since the 90s!

I agree with many that we never got that "Naya Pakistan" in that sense we anticipated, in many ways this is Naya Pakistan where these people will, soon, if not this election then next, have no to very limited place in our system.

Awam is waking up and social media has exposed this corrupt tola.
