Most importantly, the dead cannot cry out for justice it is the duty of living to do so. The unfortunate soul departed the world in pain. It is now in the hands of our judicial system and government to make sure he gets justice.
Moreover, we see the ‘common man vs powerful people’ debate rise like never before after countless such cases of injustice and entitled behavior came to light.
Meanwhile, the Balochistan government and the center are yet to say a word on the matter. The people of Balochistan always feel neglected by the government as well as media when it comes to helping them over such incidents.
