QUETTA: A protest rally led by the family of missing Zaheer Ahmad and the Baloch Yakjehti Committee turned violent after clashes between police and protesters in front of the Red Zone of the provincial capital. Six police personnel and many protesters, including women, were injured, and several arrests were made to disperse the protesters.

The recent revelations by the Senate Standing Committee on Health shed light on the severe lack of healthcare providers . Shockingly, there is a shortage of approximately one million nurses, and a significant number of registered doctors are not actively practicing medicine. These statistics paint a grim picture of a healthcare system in dire need of immediate intervention. The root cause of this crisis lies in the historical neglect of the healthcare sector by successive governments. Health has never been a priority in policymaking, leading to an inadequate and underfunded medical infrastructure. The absence of planned investments in the medical workforce has exacerbated the situation, resulting in a national emergency that cannot be ignored any longer.

The Foreign Office has rejected the interim Afghan government’s offer to facilitate talks between Pakistan and the outlawed terrorist group Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

Climate challenges facing Balochistan are complex and multifaceted, requiring a comprehensive and coordinated response from all stakeholders. Addressing water scarcity, promoting sustainable agriculture, combating deforestation, and investing in renewable energy are crucial steps towards building a more resilient and sustainable future for Balochistan. It is imperative that we act now to protect the environment, support vulnerable communities, and safeguard the well-being of future generations in Balochistan.
