Shameful act and just as disgraceful is the auto condemnation by spineless and corrupt government in league. More painful is the fact that when it is claimed that “it is against our traditions”. Gone are the days of traditions. Balochistan is the first province where a women ( Mrs Adadan, a Parsi family) is held hostage for the last so many months for extortion. No one has come out in support of a women, whose husband was also kidnapped some tens years back and forgotten. Every one in this province knows that the strings are moved by those who are champions of democracy and are suppose to provide safety and protection.
