Pakistani Balochistan - Call for creation of Pashtoon province


QUETTA: The Pashtoon Qaumi Tehrik has called for creation of a ‘southern Pashtoonkhwa’ province comprising areas from Sibi to Zhob.

Addressing a gathering of PQT activists at the Meezan chowk here on Tuesday, the party’s leader, Rafiq Pashtoon, said it was unjustified to give the top posts of chief minister and governor of Balochistan to Balochs and demanded that till the creation of the new province one of the posts should be given to a Pashtoon.

He criticised former military leader Yahya Khan for merging Pashtoon areas from Sibi to Zhob into Balochistan and turning a majority into minority.

  1. Well. I think there is some think controversial in this province: geography. Sibi has lot of Pashtoons but still it does not constitute pashtoon majority area. The new province should be from Quetta to ZHOB, LORALAI. Northern Baluchistan should be made province, and Baluch dominated areas including DG KHAN AND jacobabad should be put in one province say Baluchistan.thanks.

  2. Dear Mr Khosa,

    Once again thanks for your comment. In general, we in Pakistan feel that the number of provinces should be increased in Pakistan. e.g. Punjab should be divided into three provinces of Pothohar, Central Punjab & South Punjab, similarly there is a case for Sindh, Pakhtunkhwa & Balochistan to be divided in two provinces each. Azad Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan & FATA should be declared new provinces as well.
    When Pakistan won her independence, we had only a portion of population we have now. Just Punjab has more population than the whole of Germany; Sindh has more population than England. In this circumstance it is impossible to have good governance, dispensation of justice and prosperity to all the people of Pakistan. In short Pakistan needs many more provinces to work smoothly.

  4. Pashtunkwa is the province where live around 85% of population r Pashtun and the hazara represent just only 1.8 million, less then 2ml. Panjab must be divide in 3 and in 2 Balochistan.
