    According to the liberals of Pakistan BRA ( Baloch Republican Army ) did not exist and Pakistan army retaliate for no reason at all. When some separatist will be killed in the future then our liberals will whine but they will never mention that BRA is a force that is equipped with Latest communication equipment and latest weapons and they are not doing any favor to the Baloch. BRA is involved in the killings of many security personal and a befitting reply must be given to them so they will silence for good. Recommend
