Keeping in view the multi-ethnic structure of Pakistan, the
federal structure is designed in the country.
Circumstantial evidence suggests that smaller ethnicities are not satisfied
within the structure and therefore, crises and disturbances are
continuously being witnessed. The ethnic factor becomes more visible,
impacting not only the internal politics of Pakistan but also its evolving
regional political interaction as well. The ethnicities located in the border
region of the country, have been facing the dilemma to accept the
geopolitical offers given to Pakistan by the neighboring countries. The sort
of relations causes ethnic resentments if it doesnt recognize the rights of
the community. Pashtun and Baluch ethnicities have been more relevant
for study in this regard.
