…Try to visualize the state of Pakistan as a husband and East Bengal, the Punjab, Sindh, NWFP and Baluchistan as wives.
– East Bengal was the least favorite wife and after a long battle she obtained divorce.
– NWFP is a militant wife with supportive and courageous brothers. She finally obtained a semblance of recognition as Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa.
-Baluchistan is from a poor family and is frequently spanked.
-Sindh whines all the time, but does not dare breakaway as it harbors an immigrant woman who covets the role of a favorite.
– Finally the Punjab is from powerful feudal family, has always been the favorite, but being intelligent allows other wives stay once in a while, while watching carefully, exiling, executing and imprisoning any that exceed the limits.
It is up to the lesser wives to decide.
