We are back to ignorance
It is said that before the arrival of Messenger in Arab the masses used to bury their female babies alive but today it is worse than the past mentioned epoch. The reason is that small innocent girls are being raped and killed which is the symbol of demolition of humanity.
When I reached in Faisalabad after three days I heard that a small innocent girl was raped by older than forty year man and later on she was killed, is a tear-jerking incident. It is shameful that in a Muslim country such acts are happening. I request to the authorities that they should take strict action against this.

Human Right Commission of Pakistan task force reported that a greater portion of Baloch women is out of access to education in the province of Balochistan. Further in report elaborated that discussed women are deprived of education due to lack of facilities in department mainly and reasons also invigorate this mess. Hence, in this modern age Balochistan’s people are denied of basic human right in shape of education.
The government to take stern and prompt action to resolve the human right issue in province and provide opportunity to all get educated.

Mismanagements in education department
It is said nicely that “if you want to destroy a nation, destroy its education first “. Likewise, there abode many nations whose education proceedings are refutable, like the educational system of Baloch.
Specially, it is due to the corrupt officers who are fraudulent and running the education affairs. I just want to request the concerned authorities that must take prompt action against corrupt officers and try to make educational structures from good to better, because “the beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you”

Passionate Mama Qadeer Baloch
Qadeer Baloch is going through worse phase of his life, for the aim of Baloch brothers who had got abducted ages ago. The infatuation of his for Baloch brothers has propelled to raise the effective voice to oppose wrongdoings and inequity with nation of Baloch. It is a harsh reality that the troubling long March from Quetta to Islamabad has exposed the reality to people of Pakistan. Unfortunately, the fact has been concealed to vast majority of Pakistanis that they are not aware of persecutions in Balochistan.
It is a fact that the media is not portraying true picture about Balochistan. The electronic media plays a vital role to prevent averse happenings. Unfortunately, the discussed sector has never exposed truth about Balochistan to the Pakistanis who reside in other parts of country. If this was done fairly, then catastrophe would not be intense in region as it is.
Probably, Qadeer Baloch who has sacrificed his son for sake of humanism, but no response in return to him about the missing person’s cases. The ending up government of National Party also could not sooth grieves of Mama Qadeer Baloch and other aggrieved families of Missing Baloch but their passion implies they will get attention of civilized world for resolve the malady of Balochistan.

Stampede in Haj
Every year during Haj (a religious ritual) mishaps have been occurring and hundreds of pilgrim lose lives in those. The Saudi government charges heavy amount from Haj applicants, but poor management spells-out in the shape of recurring untoward incidents.
Performance of Haj is part of Muslim faith. The state of Saudia is earning from pilgrims (Hajis) who travel to holy cities of Makkah and Madina and other revered sites there. The oil production is country’s prime source of income which is lessening gradually due to variations in world politics, and Saudia is slanting on revenue of Haj which has turned the second source of income for it.
Poor countries indigent people pay amount to Saudi government for better facilities during the Haj but this state management exploits gained capital by Hajis for their luxuries, consequently every year many pilgrims embrace martyrdom during the pilgrimage, and in 2015, thousands lost their lives in worst stampede including hundreds Pakistanis.
The Saudi government should issue visa to least number of applicants that manage their affairs smoothly and utilize acquired funds for improved settings in holy cities on revered sites only, but must not use them for other means. Then mishaps can be prevented in Haj performance.

Repeated firing of mortars by Iran
It is now common that Iranian forces fire mortar-shells in the Pakistani side Balochistan. Similarly, they did in recent days. In the month of September 2015, sporadically mortars were fired by Iran which mostly hit the areas of Panjgoor. Though the fired mortars did not cause any causality but it is bare attack on sovereignty of country.
The state authorities deal with Iran in similar way as they do on eastern border with India. If the Iranian hostility is not responded, then reoccurrence of such incident is certain. A strong response to Iran by state in sort of diplomacy and military only dissuades mortars firing in the province of Balochistan. The authorities ought to take notice of mortar firing Iranian forces in Balochistan and secure the lives and properties of bordering citizens along with Iran.

Importance of Free Press
What is the power of free press? Why real democracy is considered the best form of political system? Such questions are mandatory to be known, then society can develop and civilize. Last year fatal attack on Hamid Mir a renowned journalist was a painful and flabbergasting incident carried out by unknown persons that sealed the way to free press in country of Pakistan.
This is a question that why civilian and military rulers in Pakistan don’t allow freedom of press? Possible they fear or lack moral courage to face the truth about their incompetence and disrespect the rule of law. They are only interested in high standard living by people’s wealth without toiling. Due to hierarchic system or families’ dynasty some people control on government department wholly, which has resulted in country rampant of corruption, nepotism and bad governance.
The press is considered the fourth pillar of the state and medium of expression for common citizen; hence this department is liable to expose the truth to public. Its prime responsibility is to highlight the realities and the wrongdoings of the few authoritarians.
The evolution taught human that without criticism or viewing critical point of things reforms cannot be brought but here press is restricted and journalists are not free to write or speak against the government’s institutes which are causing obstacles in maintaining of good governance and placing matters right position. We must learn from history that truth never can be concealed.

The current curricula urgent require some additions but the mother tongue in shape of Balochi Literature is essentially needs inclusion in this. Inappropriately, in Balochistan, from basic to high level classes has no book in Balochi Language. Thus, the Balochistan Text Book Board is fairly demanded for alteration in academic subjects.
Here the major responsibility goes to the people who are very keen to study, learn Balochi Literature and promoting Mother Tongues must agitate for inclusion in syllabus. Obviously credit goes to them who should not be mute on this juncture. They ought to come forth and open such institutes which cause thrive of Balochi Literature.

Load shedding in Turbat
Turbat is situated on the bank of Kech River, is an immense city of Balochistan. What is more surprising, that it is still deprived of fundamental and legislative need of life.
Furthermore, today we consider electricity one of the basic need of human being which contributes significantly in establishing a cozy life and it is crucial to convey the message that load shedding isn’t only interrupting the process of factories, shopkeepers, businessmen but also is a sorrier hurdle for students to study at night and in summer’s hot days without fanning.
Moreover, it hurts to state that Turbat’s citizens are facing woes because of load shedding long hours of 8 to 10 daily wise.
There is no denying fact that we are getting electricity from Iran and still they are creating hurdles which has deteriorated the situations. Electricity is getting worse breakdown due to mismanagement by WAPDA (Water and Power Development Authority).
The authorities are requested to take dire and prompt action to curb the load shedding problem in city of Turbat.

The Balochistan province is affected most by disease polio in entire region and in this part of country volunteers were targeted to death by miscreants.

Thus, the government has weak ground planning and procedure and the existence of virus validates this. Now government ought to take measures on war ground to protect the province’s children from polio virus.

The Importance of libraries
Libraries mean the combination of various books where the people study by touching the world through informative books what they need. Surely, a library plays an important role in students’ lives even in teachers. A library is a best source to build up the reading habit and avoid people from bad activities. There is no denying the fact that today the educational environment is the result of libraries. Fortunately, library is the best choice for those children who can’t afford to buy books with high prices. In addition, the poor children have the interest to get more and more from books. Painfully, there is lack of libraries. As the fact the flowers of the country are discouraged.
The authorities should pay inducement attention towards this sector.

Poor patients in governmental hospitals
Due to the lack of medicines at government hospital in Turbat the poor patients are suffering badly as they are compelled either purchase medicines from private medical stores or discontinue their treatment. The Balochistan government spends huge amount for purchase of medicines every year, but medicines are actually not delivered to the patients in the hospitals, while bulk is sold by the corrupt officials to the private medical stores. However, drug inspectors state that theft of drugs in state-run hospitals is a roaring business and large quantities of such stolen drugs have been recovered during raids on private medical stores. The wishes of Dr Malik for the development of health sector in Balochistan remains a dream. It is my request to the health minister to take action against the involved people.

Those are all the things you don’t want. Focus on what you already have that you are grateful for. And it might be that you have the eyes to read this. It might be the clothes that you have. Yes, you might prefer something else and you might get something else pretty soon, if you start feeling grateful for what you have.”

Career counseling plays an essential role for students to decide about their future. This is the only choice which can decrease the confusions of students for selecting the right way for moving towards their destination.
Additionally, we fail to do so in our area “Turbat” which is known as one of the biggest city in the province of Balochistan. In starting of every school year a number of students are seen in dark nights as if they are the students of foundation classes, nevertheless they belong to higher classes like F.A and FSc. Most of the students with plenty of queries in their minds regarding the selection of subjects are rushing towards their nearest members who themselves are unaware about career counseling.
At least from now on the authority concern should start working on a project about the career counseling so that students from this year must not be facing the same problem repeatedly.
