Major (R) Adil Raja eloquently highlighted a pivotal concern regarding one of Pakistan's most pressing issues.

As a collective of Pakistanis, we often find ourselves predisposed to allocating varying degrees of attention to different matters.

This disposition becomes especially apparent when we contemplate the distressing realities unfolding in regions like Sindh and Balochistan.

It raises the question: Why is there a prevailing lack of engagement and concern among a significant portion of our populace in relation to the profound issues detrimentally impacting areas like Sindh and Balochistan?

The inquiry into this phenomenon prompts us to delve into the intricate dynamics that shape our priorities.

As a society, our biases and preferences influence the extent to which we engage with the multifaceted challenges faced by various regions.

It is noteworthy that the disparities in attention allocation are not indicative of a lack of empathy or concern for the plights of those in Sindh and Balochistan.

Rather, they underscore the complex interplay of media coverage, societal narratives, and personal experiences that collectively influence our perceptions.

To bridge this gap and foster a more holistic understanding, it is imperative that we collectively work towards elevating the visibility of issues affecting these regions.

This involves encouraging open dialogues, unbiased reporting, and initiatives that promote empathy and unity across all provinces

. By doing so, we can collectively address the concerns that beset Sindh and Balochistan, thereby fostering a more inclusive and empathetic society that stands united in the face of challenges.
