Media in Balochistan
By Wazeer Marri
Undoubtedly, Media is performing a foremost role in every country by manifesting the verity without any discrimination and it works to modernize the codes of living in the societies. In addition, works like a tutor for the nations, which often shows the whole features of live.
Furthermore, it becomes the players of each up and down. On the other hand, in Pakistan media, especially social media is totally leading oppositely but in Balochistan its role is deleterious.
In fact, it shows the real faces in the other provinces but in Balochistan it portrays distorted image. However, in Balochistan it has uplifted voice about poverty, army operations, and flood, discovered graves in Tutak and state institutes abduction and throwing of mutilated bodies of Baloch youth. Such incidents were ignored by state media mainstream.
It has been noted, recently the long march by the VBMP, which was led by Mama Qadeer Baloch and other women and children incepted from Quetta to Karachi, and then from Karachi to Islamabad in the pursuance of justice. They were holding placards and photos of their beloved one also asking from media why are you silent?
Without any doubt, the one who witnessed the innocent children were moving on foot and holding placards couldn’t stand paying mercy to them. Astonishingly, the media had blacked-out the discussed event and let no room of misgivings about them for being biased.
I request to the media’s authorities that they must not to be materialistic and pay attention toward Balochistan issue and highlight it nationally and internationally.
