Remembering the sane voice from Balochistan

Today marks the first anniversary of the death of senior journalist Siddiq Baluch.  An undisputed authority on Balochistan, his voice is deeply missed in the ongoing debate about the province’s political and economic problems.

A colleague of mine, Malik Siraj, once joked that if the the conflict in Balochistan ever came to an end we journalists would fast run out of stories to cover. But such was Siddiq Baluch’s mastery of all things related to the province that he would never run out of material.
