Quetta, as its capital, Balochistan is one of the largest provinces in the country, serving as the only major port at Gwadar, a Pakistani city bordering with Afghanistan. With its geographical position of being at a remote distance from the heart of the country, a boon to its current scenario, the state faces the hazard of becoming the safest hide for the terrorists. This has become a good excuse for the Pak army groups to reason their target of seizure over the state.

However, the abundance of natural resources yield a good revenue for the Federal Government, the city lacks a proper law and order and has a poor governance. The economy also reports terrible depths poverty compared to all other provinces in the country. Adding to the increasing insecurity of the state, reports prove the calamity of people agitated to rise over the government being suppressed. Grief adds to the still-continuing Tribal Council System, say locals residing the Panchayat.

Records from the attacked province state a poor security at the border crossing between Pakistan and Afghanistan. What much favors such attacks is a Low-Density population in the province and no direct central governance. This makes the state, a perfect hunt for the army groups. Although being the largest province, the inhabited status seems not larger than eight million. Hence, it becomes a major reason for Balochistan, becoming an easy target. Also, the riots to take Balochistan for themselves are being fought by the Baloch Liberation Army.

This Liberation Army, who gathers forces of human power, the major indulgence of the Shias, is the largest active forum acting for the people against the Governmental reinforcements. They highly demand self-state governance, completely from Pakistan’s interference. Also, they demand their Province gain its status as it was once before the partition.

Google’s admission that it had in 2014 inadvertently coded the 112 distress number and the UIDAI helpline number into its setup wizard for Android devices triggered another controversy on Saturday as India’s telecom regulator had only recommended the use of 112 as an emergency number in April 2015.

After a large section of smartphone users in India saw a toll-free helpline number of UIDAI saved in their phone-books by default, Google issued a statement, saying its “internal review revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number were inadvertently coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android release given to OEMs for use in India and has remained there since”.

However, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommended only in April 2015 that the number 112 be adopted as the single emergency number for the country.

According to Google, “since the numbers get listed on a user’s contact list, these get  transferred accordingly to the contacts on any new device”.

Google was yet to comment on the new development.

Meanwhile, French security expert that goes by the name of Elliot Alderson and has been at the core of the entire Aadhaar controversy, tweeted on Saturday: “I just found something interesting. I will probably do full disclosure tomorrow”.

“I’m digging into the code of the @Google SetupWizard app and I found that”.

“As far as I can see this object is not used in the current code, so there is no implications. This is just a poor coding practice in term of security,” he further tweeted.

On Friday, both the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as well as the telecom operators washed their hand of the issue.

While the telecom industry denied any role in the strange incident, the UIDAI said that he strange incident, the UIDAI said that some vested interests were trying to create “unwarranted confusion” in the public and clarified that it had not asked any manufacturer or telecom service provider to provide any such facility.

Twitter was abuzz with the new development after a huge uproar due to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma’s open Aadhaar challenge to critics and hackers.

Ethical hackers exposed at least 14 personal details of the TRAI Chairman, including mobile numbers, home address, date of birth, PAN number and voter ID among others. (IANS)
