More Nonsense Bemoaning the Ethnic polarization in Pakistan, and as always, blaming the poor Punjabi.
However, I believe that the blame for this lies at the feet of the politicians of the “smaller” provinces, which have never ceased to vilify the Punjab and demonise the Punjabi. In the rioting following the death of Nawab Bugti for instance, the parliamentarians of the smaller provinces were not prepared to offer a single word of sympathy to the innocent Punjabis being killed in Balochistan.
History shows that such vitriol invariably generates a backlash. And if the late Mohtarma can be exalted as a symbol of the federation despite blatant appeals to Sindhi chauvinism, why fault the Chaudrys for trying to pick up a few votes now that the shoe is on the other foot?
