Great sentiments alone do not make great men

—Mir Mohammad Ali Talpur
Compromises with the oppressive system only strengthen the shackles of slavery of both mind and body of the oppressed

"It is not the strength but the duration of great sentiments that makes great men." This axiomatic quote of Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), the German philosopher-poet underlines the overwhelming importance of consistency and persistence in any honourable struggle. Persistence and constancy eventually succeed.
The Baloch struggle has been blessed with consistency and intensity and that has worked in its favour.
Verily, it is insane not to oppose oppressive systems that deny people their rights. Compromises with the oppressive system only strengthen the shackles of slavery of both mind and body of the oppressed. All those who talk about working for change within the system are purposely misleading the people from the rightful path of struggle. They do a great disservice to the people and need to understand that by serving the oppressors and colonisers' system, they sell their people for a pittance.
