Salman Daud, Munir Mengal or Miss Naila Qadir will have to play their role by joining and becoming a part of collective efforts of political institutions. the Baloch plight by joining/within a Baloch national organization rather on individuality. Individualism creates non-seriousness and anyone can harm national movement through such efforts for personal interests”
