A prominent Baloch Journalist told IntelliBriefs that "The middle class still does not have a say and Sardars are very unpredictable, sardars can change loyalties at any time. Educated diaspora simply lack a roadmap and not playing its role sufficiently. Education is no one’s priority here, no one is working on developing the political parties. These are all basic problems that no one is addressing"
IntelliBriefs also asked a Baloch expert in Pakistan about his view on the latest article. He concurred with the author's unbiased analysis and commented on Sardars role in the Baloch Society and movement as "it is a social history, Sardars evolved and further evolution will end them, Social engineering has always failed" . When questioned about chances of educated middle class coming to the center stage and lead the people, he said "All this takes time but waiting for them and not making use of available material is sheer folly". The Baloch Diaspora too is not effective, "I think they are putting in an effort ,but efforts on 10 in Richter scale are needed by all concerned" said the analyst.
The question is whether Sardars are threatened by the raise by the middle class leaders; experts don't think so, because the turf realities dictate the issues not the wishes of some people (say Sardars). They may try to protect their turf and their hold on the people, if they are foolish enough, but can't succeed. Sardars who are trying to deceive baloch people with rhetoric alone will sooner or later be exposed and will have to leave the nationalist scene.
We came across this blog "Baloch Sardar Watch" http://sardarwatch.wordpress.com/ , posted the same article, which claims to represent "middle class Baloch" leaders and quotes "Its time for middle class Baloch leaders to raise and represent genuine aspiration of Baloch people. “Baloch Sardar Watch” is an effort to expose fake Baloch Sardars who are thorn in the way to our freedom".
