    Pakistan has been trying to brutally suppress
    the Baloch resistance ever since it occupied
    Balochistan in 1948. People of Balochistan
    distrusted Muhammad Ali Jinnah and did not
    want to go with Pakistan. In 1947, the Baloch
    ruler even sent emissaries to India, seeking
    India's help. But India’s Prime Minister Nehru
    turned a blind eye.
    Jinnah first tried to persuade Mir Ahmadyar
    Khan, the Khan of Kalat to join Pakistan but he
    did not agree. Following this, the army was
    ordered to move into the Baloch territory. The
    Khan signed a pact at gun point. Since then,
    thousands of Balochs have been massacred,
    thousands were abducted and tortured. Baloch
    leaders say about 4000 children were
    massacred over the years.
    According to Salahuddin Baloch, an activist,
    on March 17, 2016, the Pakistani authorities
    announced head-money for 99 Baloch rebels.
    The rebel groups say that they are fighting
    against the Pakistani occupation whereas the
    authorities call them terrorists. Currently, the
    resource-rich Balochistan is the poorest and
    least developed province of Pakistan. Human
    rights groups claim there are more than
    20,000 Baloch missing persons, a phrase used
    to refer to those who have been picked by
    armed forces and their whereabouts are
    unknown. “They ended up as mutilated dead
    bodies thrown at an isolated place,” he notes.
    According to him, nearly a million of Baloch
    have been displaced by military operations,
    which are often marked by indiscriminate
    lethal bombings. “Undoubtedly, had there
    been an independent fact-finding commission,
    sent and monitored by the UN, Pakistan would
    not be able to defend the charges of targeted

    India should highlight the plight of Balochs in
    international forums. “Amnesty International
    and other human rights organizations have
    been accusing Pakistan of war crimes and
    human rights violations, which it constantly
    denies and yet does not permit foreign
    diplomats and journalists to freely visit

    Balochistan: Pakistan's darkest
    underbelly and dirtiest open secret lies

    For many Indians, Balochistan suddenly
    surfaced on the world map when Prime
    Minister Narendra Modi referred to
    Pakistan's troubled province during his
    Independence Day speech last Monday. Yet
    through his carefully crafted words from
    the ramparts of Red Fort, the Prime
    Minister was merely lifting the veil off one
    of the most brutal and sustained conflicts
    in human history that Pakistan had for so
    long been largely able to keep under wraps.
    By merely mentioning the "B" word before
    a global audience and in presence of the
    entire foreign diplomatic corps, Modi
    achieved two objectives crucial to India.
    One, he launched a handy counter-
    narrative to Pakistan's propaganda war
    over Kashmir. Two, he dealt a strategic
    masterstroke by uncovering Pakistan's
    dirtiest secret that left Islamabad red-faced
    and foaming at the mouth, though there is
    no dearth of sceptics who think that this
    new strategic shift surrenders India's
    moral high and might either backfire or get
    India nowhere.

    But there is another important
    repercussion, one that could have a greater
    impact beyond the game of one-upmanship
    between two South Asian neighbours. The
    Prime Minister of the world's largest
    democracy, by simply "thanking Baloch
    people for their good wishes", may have
    just breathed new life into their long
    struggle for self-determination.
    The Baloch are a proud people with a
    distinct history that dates back at least to
    the pre-Islamic era and a unique
    geographical location amid one of the
    world's most mineral-rich zones. At 42 per
    cent, it has nearly half of entire Pakistan's
    landmass but is smallest by population,
    home to just 13 million people. Here's one
    example to illustrate just how fiercely the
    Baloch guard their separate identity.
    Firstpost put out a story on how Karima
    Baloch, sent out a Raksha Bandhan
    greetings to Prime Minister Narendra Modi
    (more on it later) but identified her as a
    Pakistani national. She corrected us

    Balochistan is a confluence of different
    ethnic tribes including the dominant
    Balochis and a sizeable Pashtun population.
    Ironically, despite having the most
    abundant natural resources in natural gas,
    oil, coal, copper, sulphur, fluoride and
    gold, it is also one of Pakistan's poorest

    The roots of the Balochistan conflict go back
    till the country's independence and lie in
    Pakistan's annexation of an independent,
    sovereign nation. Unlike Pakistan, an
    experimental, test-tube state forged by the
    British with an intent to divide India along
    its racial and religious fault lines,
    Balochistan always had all the ingredients
    of a separate nation-state. The Baloch were
    and remain a fiercely independent people,
    with a cultural identity backed by a long
    history and a social identity different from
    As AK Mengal, Nationalist Leader and
    former chief minister (1972-73) of
    Balochistan province told BBC in a 1987
    Channel 4 documentary, Balochistan: The
    Gathering Storm : "Baloch has a history of a
    different identity. It has all the qualities of
    a separate nation. It has got its own
    language, it has got its own culture, own
    heroes and it has got its own land."
    The concept of Balochistan as a nation-state
    was formed in 1410. Stretching till Iran to
    the west and Afghanistan to the north, it
    was an independent country before the
    British attacked and annexed it in 1839.
    The British later arbitrarily sliced
    Balochistan into three pieces irrespective of
    its ethno or socio-economic
    traditions through two artificial borders -
    the Goldsmith Line (1871) and the Durand
    Line (1895). Northern Balochistan and
    western Balochistan were given to Iran and
    Afghanistan, respectively, and eastern
    Balochistan (which is now under Pakistan
    occupation) remained independent and
    maintained treaty relations with the British.
    The British remained in eastern Balochistan
    until 1947 and at the time of their
    departure they recognised Balochistan as
    an independent state.
    The Khan of Kalat, who presided over
    nearly all of Balochistan barring three
    minor principalities, had the choice to
    either accede to India or Pakistan through
    merger or remain an independent nation.
    Three days before Pakistan separated from
    India, a tripartite agreement was signed
    between the British, the ruler of
    Balochistan and what would be the new
    Pakistan administration accepting Baloch
    sovereignty. The Khan of Kalat wanted to
    maintain a treaty-based, brotherly
    relationship with Pakistan.
    GB Bizenjo, former governor of Balochistan
    in 1972-73, told BBC Channel 4: "On 11
    August, 1947, a communiqué was released
    from the Viceroy's House. It was broadcast
    that Kalat of Khan is not an Indian state but
    a sovereign, independent state with treaty
    relations with British Empire. Both Houses
    (House of Commons and House of Lords
    drawn after the British empire) in Khanate
    of Kalat, the princely state, voted against

    Pakistan's Quaid-e-Azam Mohammed Ali
    Jinnah's machinations ensured that
    Pakistan marched into the country in
    March 1948 and annexed it. Though Mir
    Ahmed Yar Khan, the then ruler of Kalat,
    signed a 'treaty of accession' under the
    threat of imprisonment, his brothers and
    followers continued to fight, triggering the
    first conflict between Baloch and the
    Pakistani Army. The Baloch Parliament
    never accepted this treaty and it never
    received people's mandate.
    So far, there have been five waves of
    insurgencies starting with the 1948
    rebellion. There were uprisings in 1958,
    1962-63 and 1973-77. After two decades of
    relative lull, the fifth Baloch insurgency
    movement began in 2003. In 2006, tallest
    Baloch leader Akbar Khan Bugti
    was assassinated in a targeted plot by the
    Pakistan army.
    For all these years, Balochistan has
    remained under the yoke of Pakistani
    oppression - political subjugation, economic
    exploitation, cultural hegemony and
    military excesses - resulting in gross human
    rights violations and untold atrocities for
    over seven decades.
    The last 15 years have been particularly
    brutal. Naela Quadri Baloch, a self-exiled
    rights activist and Canada-based women's
    leader campaigning against Pakistan's
    presence in her land, told The Times of India
    during a recent visit that Pakistan's torture
    amounts to genocide.
    "For the last 15 years, we are facing war
    imposed on us by Pakistan, human rights
    violations and their kill-and-dump policy.
    (Around) 25,000 people including women
    and children are missing… abducted by
    Pakistan Army. It has reached the level of
    genocide. There are a hundred mass graves
    in Balochistan. It is a war situation. They
    fire indiscriminately, they kill anything -
    one-year-old babies, girls, women and
    even our cattle. They abduct and take
    Baloch women into their rape cells. There
    are official torture cells. They have
    abducted thousands of women- no one
    knows their whereabouts. They are using
    rape and dishonour as an instrument to
    crush a nation."
    A report in The Guardian collates some of
    the gross human rights violations,
    extrajudicial killings, enforced
    disappearances of militants and activists
    and crimes against humanity carried out by
    the Pakistan army and reported by various
    human rights organizations.
    "In December 2005, Sardar Ataullah
    Mengal, Balochistan's former chief
    minister, reported that Pakistani troops had
    used chemical weapons against Baloch
    tribespeople. He produced photographs of
    individuals bleeding from their mouths and
    noses, who he said were civilian victims of
    poison gas attacks. Other reports allege
    Pakistan's use of napalm and cluster bombs
    in civilian areas.
    "On March 17, 2005, the Pakistan military
    shelled the town of Dera Bugti, killing more
    than 70 civilians. In December that year,
    Islamabad's military operation against the
    Marri Baloch people killed 86 and wounded
    120. Many of the victims were women and
    young children.
    "A 2006 report by the Human Rights
    Commission of Pakistan (HRCP)
    documented arbitrary arrests and
    detention, torture, extra-judicial and
    summary executions, disappearances and
    the use of excessive and indiscriminate
    violence by Pakistan's police, military,
    security and intelligence forces. These
    findings were corroborated by Amnesty
    A 2014 report in BBC tells of a discovery on
    17 January, 2013, of bodies from a mass
    grave in the village of Tutak near Khuzdar
    in Balochistan province. Only two of the
    mutilated, decomposed bodies have been
    identified so far - both were men who had
    disappeared four months earlier."
    Naela Quadri Baloch tells The Times of
    India the account of a journalist who "was
    abducted, tortured and he witnessed a 25-
    year-old Baloch schoolteacher Zarina Marri
    in a rape cell. When he was released, he
    gave his report and testimony to Asian
    Human Rights Watch."
    And LiveLeak appeared to corroborate the
    account, citing Asian Human Rights
    Commission (AHRC) that a 23-year old
    Baloch school teacher "had been repeatedly
    raped by the military officers and is being
    used as a sex slave, to induce arrested
    nationalist activists to sign state-concocted
    confessions." The report quoted sources as
    saying that "there were [referring to an
    eye-witness account] young Balochi females
    seen at those two torture cells, naked and
    in distress… the women are sexually
    abused in the military custody but they
    cannot say so publicly because of their
    sanctity and harassment of their families."
    This was also confirmed in a NDTV article
    which quoted European Organization of
    Pakistani Minorities (EOPM), an NGO
    working for the rights of minorities in
    Pakistan, in saying that Pakistani army is
    sexually assaulting minority women and
    using them as sex slaves. EOPM reported
    that women of Balochistan and Gilgit
    Baltistan were being abducted by Pakistan
    army officials and taken to torture camps,
    where they are raped and used as sex
    But why and how did Pakistan get away
    with such large-scale acts of violence? Why
    has the United Nations looked the other
    way and international community
    maintained a deathly silence?
    In the game of chess that is geopolitical
    strategies, Balochistan has always remained
    a pawn at the hands of influential players
    such as Britain, Russia, America and now
    increasingly, China. In terms of both
    economy and national security, Balochistan
    remains of huge strategic interest for both
    Iran and Pakistan.
    As for western powers, Baloch plight is
    nothing more than a collateral damage
    because Pakistan must be kept on their side
    for the so-called, unending war on terror
    even though Islamabad uses the abundance
    of aid to foment more terror in the region.
    There have been recent signs of US
    disillusionment with Pakistan's policy of
    using terrorism as state policy but there is
    an apprehension nevertheless that if
    Balochistan is allowed to break free, it will
    unleash the same terrorism genie that is
    troubling the middle east.
    India has suddenly altered this delicate and
    complex balance by declaring moral
    support for the Baloch people in their
    struggle for freedom. And Modi's gesture
    has been welcomed with open arms by
    Baloch activists and nationalist leaders.
    While Naela Quadri Baloch urged the Prime
    Minister to take up the issue at the United
    Nations in September, Karima Baloch, a
    young student leader from the turbulent
    region took the occasion of Raksha
    Bandhan to express her gratitude towards
    In a YouTube post, Karima, the chairperson
    of Baloch Student Organisation, requested
    Modi to be a brother to Baloch women who
    have lost their brothers in atrocities
    inflicted by Pakistan Army.
    "Hum apni jung khud lad lege, aap bas humari
    awaaz ban jae (We will fight our own war,
    you just be our voice)," Karima said, in her
    message to PM Modi, requesting him to
    engage the world in a dialogue about the
    genocide and human rights violations in

    It remains to be seen how India approaches
    the Baloch equation. Will it merely use
    Baloch struggle as a leverage against
    Pakistan, or internationalise the issue
    further to create more pressure on
