Abstract: "All the problems of politics, of social organization, and of education have been falsified through and through because one mistook the most harmful men for great men - because one learned to despise 'little' things, which means the basic concerns of life itself." --Nietzshe. 1 One of the serious challenges that the state of Pakistan has been confronted with since its creation in 1947 is the self-assertion of various ethnic groups. Out of the initial five ethnic groups - Bengalis, Punjabis, Pukhtun, Sindhis and Baloch - four have actively contested the legitimacy of the administrative structure of the state, with one, the Bengalis, succeeding in breaking away and creating their own state, Bangladesh.
