New province

You might have heard the complaints of how the southern Punjab is far from the Takht-e-Lahore and hence the former must be made a separate province. This is a very bad and dangerous reasoning for doing something that might be legitimately necessary. Unfortunately, it is being used as the prime reason to do so.
Can't you take this same argument and apply it in the context of the Balochistan province, for instance, being far from Takht-e-Islamabad. Hence, I presume that the federal government should feel that just as Southern Punjab should be separated from Takht-e-Lahore, Balochistan should also be separated from .....
A very dangerous precedent is being set here.
