‘Cyclone Yemyin fuels separatist movement’

Karachi, Pakistan
The devastation caused as a result of Cyclone Yemyin in Balochistan has fueled the separatist movement in that province. “Districts Kech, Panjgur, Gwadur, Kharan, Khuzdar, Lasbela, Naseerabad, Katchi and Jhal Magsi have been completely destroyed by the cyclone and there was no help either from the federal or the provincial government for five days. The Pakistan government should have sought help from the United Nations and other aid agencies but it was totally indifferent to the plight of the Baloch people...It’s true that there is a movement in Balochistan for an independent state and the devastation caused by Cyclone Yemyin and the aloofness and indifference of the State has acted as a catalyst in the movement.”
