National pride, according to him, is urgently needed. He stated that this fact is well known to the interim government. To do this, he stated, the government will keep helping Pakistan Television and other national networks.
Pakistan is a federation, according to the prime minister, and its strength is found in its diversity of languages and cultures. He mentioned that the languages spoken by the inhabitants of Balochistan are Hindko, Pashto, Saraiki, Punjabi, Sindhi, Balochi, Bravi, and Hazargi. He mentioned the rich history of Hazargi and the Hazara community in Balochistan. He declared that he is ecstatic to present PTV Bolan’s inaugural Hazargi show today.
