The balancing act


On October 25, activists of Jeay Sindh Quami Mahaz and Jeay Sindh Tehrik, two small Sindhi nationalist groups, rallied separately in Jacobabad. These rallies were part of a long series of protests that nationalist groups have been holding across Sindh since the last two months or so, over the introduction of a new local government law in the province.
They have forced businesses to shut down in many towns and cities; sometimes they have scuffled with the police, leading to at least one death in Nawabshah; and in some places they have torched vehicles and set public and private buildings on fire.
