Then apex court bench observed that the former government failed to protect the people of the province and everyone hoped the new government will change things for better, however, the situation has not improved.

Commenting on the sectarian violence in the province, Chief Justice Chaudhry said only one community is being targeted by the extremists.

He added that the militants are strengthening because of the government’s soft stance.

Why single out Balochistan? Where in Pakistan is the situation improving? And what has this CJ done to punish any criminal who was involved in terrorism?
