'The Long March for Justice': On the pedagogical aspects of Baloch resistance

Nations are best educated through a truthful presentation of their history, traditions and culture but this becomes well nigh impossible when they are colonized because the colonizer distorts history to make way for its narrative which it wants to superimpose on the psyche of the colonized nation to make slavery look dignified and therefore more acceptable. The role of history in raising the consciousness of nations is what the colonizer fears most and this is what they intend to counter when they set about distorting history with fabrications and spurious figures to belittle the history of the colonized people to ensure unopposed domination and abject obsequiousness. This is exactly what Pakistan has done with Baloch and Sindhi nations here. The Baloch had not opted for Pakistan but Sindh had without realizing the dire consequences it would bring in its wake. Pakistan has continually distorted history to superimpose its narrative; you’ll hardly find a mention of Baloch or Sindhi heroes in the text books, even the roads and places are named either after persons from Islamic history or post 1947 persons.
