Prevailing Deprivation: JI chief seeks return of Baloch leaders

Published: April 26, 2012

QUETTA: Chief of Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) Syed Munawr Hasan strongly condemned allegations levelled against self-exiled Baloch leaders and said the government “should bring the Baloch leadership into mainstream politics and include them in the decision-making process rather than accusing them of being backed by foreign powers.” Addressing a news conference on Wednesday, the JI chief said that the sense of deprivation was deepening in Balochistan while those in parliament continue to make hollow promises. Criticising the provincial government, he termed it an obstacle to resolving the Balochistan issue.
