Baloch of Iran and Pakistan: Major Problems of Social Development of a Southern Asian Community


Social development is important for many reasons. But in the social sphere, Baloch masses across Iran and Pakistan are mostly under the influence of their tradition and superstitions which form their old pattern of beliefs. This creates the social problems, such as the idea of inequality between man and woman in civil services or denying and discouraging the educated Baloch people especially women a right to participate in politics, have not been identified clearly as real social problems. Balochi traditional societies of Iran and especially Pakistan are dominated by religious practices and religious forms of education which are known as stereotyped problems.This paper is an attempt to discuss the major bottlenecks for social development of Baloch peoples.
