India must not trust Naela Quadiri, read why?

Since the Baloch national struggle for liberation got momentum Pakistan has been using every tactic and method to suppress the Baloch struggle. Among them is the use of military where its army using heavy artillery on villages, abduction, torture, kill and dump across Balochistan is part of army doctrine.


The most dangerous tactic of Pakistan ISI is to send its spies in the disguise of friends of Baloch into Baloch ranks to destroy the Baloch struggle from within like a woodworm. Among the spies many were sent as a sympathetic journalist or social worker to map the Baloch resistant struggle and many of them were sent to international forums to slow poison international friends of Baloch against Baloch struggle and against the true Baloch leadership.


India is no doubt a friend of Baloch and have been supporting Baloch struggle morally and speaking against human rights violations in Balochistan. India is also the prime target of Pakistan and is considered the #1 enemy of Pakistan by the dominant Punjabi elite class and army in Pakistan.


Pakistan also blames India for its evils committed by its own Punjabi army. To defame India Pakistan has been using all kind of strategies to prove on international forums that India is financing Baloch struggle and is responsible for the unrest in Balochistan. But the reality is otherwise which can be seen in as bloodshed in Kashmir and in other neighboring countries by Pakistani state sponsored proxies and the influx of mushroom politicians surfacing in India as Baloch leaders and demanding for Indian support to form a Baloch government in exile.
Naela Qaudiri is among one of them😀😀😀😀😀 . It is crucial to educate Indian public and international friends of Balochistan about Naela. She is a professor by profession. Her father Syed Ahmad Quadiri an Urdu speaking (Muhajir) ex-member of Pakistan National Party of Ghauz Bakhsh Bijinzo had no root in independent struggle of Balochistan. She astonished everyone in Balochistan when she suddenly pops up on Indian media participating in TV talk shows as a pro-independent and Baloch women leader. Asking for support from Indian government, she even demanded to establish the government of Balochistan in India. Naela Qaudiri’s such demand all of a sudden that also from Indian government raises eye brow and many questions in minds of Baloch and Indian Janta as what could be the agenda behind her sudden demand. It not only raised questions to mind of common Baloch supporter but also alarmed the Baloch leadership that an individual without the consent of Baloch nation and leadership approached Indian government to form a Government of Baloch in exile?


Baloch Republican Party leader, Brahmdagh Bugti was aware of her suspicious role because Naela Quadiri was a central member of BRP for few years. She was later sacked from BRP over violating the party principles. Mr.Bugti’s timely twitt alarmed the Indian media about Naela’s dubious demand to form a Baloch government in exile. Mr.Bugti explained his stance stating that the decision over a government in exile shall be taken after thorough consultation among the public and genuine leadership of pro-independent Baloch. He further added that she is not the representative of Balochistan movement and her actions are insane.


Figuring out Naela’s suspicious activities on global level does not mean Baloch are not united. This is the duty of every Baloch individual to educate the world about such opportunist who lets no stone unturned for her personal gains. Baloch intellectuals and experts cautioning the well-wishers of Baloch cause that she is an opportunist and could be a Pakistani stooge trying to disappoint India from supporting Baloch struggle morally on international forums.
After Naela’s demand which bypassed all the stake holders and pro-freedom parties was not liked by Baloch genuine leadership and Baloch masses.
Brahumdagh’s tweet over her claims of being representative of Baloch caused disappointment among international friends of Balochistan but on the other hand it benefited Pakistan and its lobby. There are reports of abductions and killing Baloch civilians on daily bases. The relatives of Baloch political activists living abroad are also being picked up and killed. Houses and entire villages are being bulldozed and bombed by Pakistan army.
It is interesting to know that Pakistan didn’t utter a single word against Naela Qaudiri’s demand to form Baloch government in exile. No​Rehmatullah Baloch

It is interesting to know that Pakistan didn’t utter a single word against Naela Qaudiri’s demand to form Baloch government in exile. No red warrant was issued against her but on the other hand Pakistan issued red warrant against Brahumdagh and other Baloch leadership.
ISI which blames Baloch activists of being R&AW agents but overlooking Naela’s open demand to form a government in exile but why she remains in the good list of ISI? The answer is simple that Pakistan knows who is Naela and how can she help Pakistan but Indian paparazzi media doesn’t know about her. This is unfortunate fact that for the India media every person speaks against Pakistan is a sympathizer of Baloch and friend of India. But the reality is different as they say that all the glitters is not Gold.
There is no doubt that Balochistan and India had been and are the best neighbors and they have no any rivalry history. In fact the people of Balochistan and India are the victim of Pakistani terrorism. This is the desire of every Baloch that their genuine leadership must establish bilateral relationship on state level and on mutual respect. Baloch leadership has been also willing to work with India, Afghanistan and other democratic countries for the betterment of their people. This is high duty of India, Afghanistan and rest of the world to be extra vigilant while dealing the Balochistan issues.
As for as Naela Qaudiri is concern it is necessary to educate the international friends particularly Indian public that she was associated with the Democratic Students Federation and preacher of Socialist Ideology. During 1970-80’ Naela was a strong facilitator of DFS, which played a vital role to divide the strength of BSO (Baloch Students Organization). She is married to a resident of Balochistan Mr.Ghulam Musataf Raisani now living in Canada.
Naela Qaudiri was also the central member of Pro-Pakistan party of #Balochistan #National #Party (Mengal) BNP(M). It is worth reminding that she was sacked from BNP (M) because she started lobbying inside the party. Apparently she was given the task to divide the vote bank BNP (M) by the ISI which the party didn’t like.
Indian media before portraying Naela Qaudiri must think that if a pro-Pakistan party BNP (M) themselves does not believe on her how great power like India gives her such protocol? I am concern that the poor Information of Indians regarding Naela Qadiri may turn her a rope for India in the future because Pakistan is eagerly hunting to find such clue to blackmail India on international platform. Her demand for a Baloch government in exile could be a task of the #ISI too because no Baloch genuine leadership agreed on Naela’s premature and doubtful call to form Baloch government India.
Experts urging Indian Media to conduct thorough check up before giving a space and voice to a person having no root in Balochistan liberation movement. The history tells that states have planted such characters into their rival states for the purpose of gathering of secret information. Is adopting harsh language against Pakistan, abusing its army makes someone a trust worthy, reliable Baloch and friend of India?

As for as Naela is concern, Baloch masses are desperate over Indian media’s lake of information about a non-Baloch. Everyone is asking did Indian media check her back ground that why Baloch genuine leadership is opposing her insane activities in India?
It is to clarify that none has any personal dispute with Naela Qaudiri neither we are against any non-Baloch to support Baloch cause. Exposing her does not mean I am showing racism or I don’t want the non-Balochs to play role in Baloch freedom movement. In fact I am a great supporter of non-Baloch to support Baloch plight. Baloch nation also appreciates the support of every country, public, individuals but a non-Baloch individual does not have the right to decide the fate of Baloch. A non-Baloch can be a supporter but not be a representative. Non-Balochs can be follow the decision but can’t impose their decisions on our friendly countries, neighbors.
According to Baloch Political experts believes that she might have has been sent by the Baloch_India enemy (Pakistan) for information gathering whether Baloch have any financial or logistic support from India.
Pakistan is trying its tooth and nail to blame India on Balochistan to put diplomatic pressure on India over Kashmir dispute. It seems Pakistan got Naela Card to black mail India to build fabricate case against India based on such individual’s information she might leak to ISI.
Balochistan National Movement also distances itself from the Naela Qaudiri’s demand of government in exile. From the friends of Hyrbyair Marri we are also hearing regarding Naela Quadri, that a non-Baloch can be a supporter of the struggle but not the representative without the consent of Baloch nation. The genuine Baloch leadership Dr Allah Nazar, Brahumdagh Bugti and Hyrbyair Marri seems to be on same page regarding Naela Qaudiri’s dubious role because such characters were penetrated by #ISI into Baloch Liberation struggle during late 1970’s. Pakistan was succeeded to plant its agents which not only spoke in favor of Baloch struggle by writing articles, columns in the magazines but they also took part in armed struggle . Najam Sithi, late Asad Rehman and a writer Rashid Rehman are the few names among them. Asad Rehman died of heart attack few years back however Najam sethi and Rashid Rehman still acting as an adviser of Pakistani army and ISI against Baloch struggle.

Baloch, India Afghanistan, USA are a natural ally in the region If India and other Baloch ally states wants to make fruitful cooperation and serious contribution in the region regarding Balochistan then they must consult with the genuine leadership of Balochistan like Dr Allah Nazar, Hyrbyair Marri and Brahamdagh Bugti because they have the mandate of the Baloch nation and are capable to influence public opinion. My friendly suggestion to the Indian government, think tanks, civil society, public and its media is that they must not believe on such individuals who have not backing deep inside Balochistan Liberation struggle neither they must be trusted without a thorough background check up and specially such individuals like Naela Qaudiri red warrant 😀😀😀😀😀 was issued against her but on the other hand Pakistan issued red warrant against Brahumdagh and other Baloch leadership.

Sardars, nawabs continue to dominate Balochistan cabinet 

https://www.dawn.com/news/1049721

Hereditary politics remained entrenched in the formation of the new cabinet. In the 14 member cabinet, 11 strong tribal chieftains and fuedals were sworn in as ministers. Almost all influential families retained their positions.

Governor Balochistan Muhammad Khan Achakzai took oath from 11 ministers belonging to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Pakhtoonkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) and National Party.

When asked about the presence of more than 80 per cent tribal chieftains in the cabinet, the Chief Minister Balochistan, Dr. Malik Baloch said, “It is not my fault, the names were provided by coalition partner

Chief Minister Balochistan, Dr. Baloch, while defending the decision of his coalition partners, said that his government will address grievances of the masses without creed, color and religion.

“It is not a matter of class rather we all are determined to address the problems of the people,” he said.

Besides induction of majority of tribal chieftains, for the first time in the history of Balochistan women, minorities and settlers were not given any representation.

The chief minister explained that the names were provided by PkMAP Chief Mehmood Khan Achakzai and Sanaullah Zehri of PML-N.

“I had nothing to do with their names,” he added.

Militancy-plagued Balochistan has always been run by strong tribal chieftains in the past.

For the first time, a middle class Baloch leader, Dr. Malik Baloch was elected as the Chief Executive of the province. Dr. Baloch’s induction was hailed throughout the country.

Sardars are mere parasites of Baloch, banish them

A few renegade scions belonging to Bugti, Marri and Mengal houses of sardars, on payroll of foreign powers and stationed abroad, are trying to become the face of Baloch nationalism. They hate educated Baloch leaders, that too persons like Dr.Allah Nazar Baloch who has become an icon for Baloch resistance. Sardars demanding greater political rights, autonomy and control over their natural resources is ridiculous, because they themselves are main stumbling block to preventing the benefits of progress and the fruits of royalty of the natural resources from trickling to the masses. The sardari system in Balochistan was abolished in the early sixties, but successive governments failed to translate it into reality due to entrenched resistance by the Baloch sardars. It is a manifestation of their unbridled power that sardars, blatantly and brazenly, maintain personal militias equipped with modern weapons and challenge the writ of the state with impunity. It is heartrending as to how they can trod upon, most inhumanely, on the fundamental rights of their followers, claiming authority drawn from traditions and custom of the Baloch. It may sound unbelievable but while dispensing justice, they can still order people to walk on fire to prove innocence, grant hand of women as compensation in feuds and levy fines amounting to lakhs on perceived misdemeanour at personal discretion. They, manifestly, are a tyrannical relic of an oppressive past, which needs to accommodate change or become extinct in the process. The British treated Balochistan markedly different than Punjab or Sindh, whereby their interest here, primarily, was not economic, but rather of a military and geopolitical in nature. They were interested in defining the Western frontiers of their empire, station garrisons to defend these frontiers and find a safe passage through the area in case of military expeditions to Afghanistan. By 1854, the Khan of Kalat had accepted the British suzerainty for an annual salary of Rs50,000. In 1876, the Khan and all his sardars signed a treaty paving the way for the implementation of the sandeman system of administration. This system changed the status of the Khan and the Baloch sardars to that of the paid agents of the British Crown. In return for this cessation of sovereignty, the sardars were provided with privy purses covering all their expenses, family needs, personal staff, body guards, tours, hospitality, maintenance of their residences, marriages and all family ceremonies etc. Under the new system, the sardars were now empowered to organise Levies Corps by recruiting tribal personnel and receiving their pays from the British, exercising the discretion of paying whatever salary they deemed necessary or none at all to their tribal members, if they so wished. As the sardars were the extension of the British authority, the system bestowed unlimited powers concerning their ability to impose whatever revenue they deemed appropriate in their tribal area. Assisted by Levies, paid for by the British, the sardars perfected a system of total submission of their tribal members, causing grave economic exploitation and political degeneration of the Baloch society.Since the British had no economic interest tied in Balochistan, they promoted the most repressive form of the jagirdari system to consolidate the authority of sardars. The land was collectively given to a tribe, as a whole in which the sardar established an intricate hierarchy of revenue collection and his own law enforcement apparatus constituting the tumandars, the muqaddams, the naibs and the maliks. These intermediaries freed the sardar from the worries of day-to-day administration and concentrate on his leisure seeking inclinations outside the Spartan environments of the harsh Baloch landscape. In economic terms, the system led to the stagnation of agriculture growth, since the surpluses produced by the system were not recycled to improve the infrastructure, methods or the environment. The result was that the institution of sardar, detached from the cycle of production, became a mere parasite whose splurging of the profits inhibited the flow of benefits to the peasants who till the soil with their sweat and blood. It is apparent that the sardars’ supreme interest is to consolidate their stranglehold over the agricultural land and the mining resources of Balochistan without sharing it with the Baloch people. To this end, they would not refrain from even using the Baloch nationalism card to create unrest; even to the extent of promoting insurgency. To further their class interests, the sardars want to freeze their communities into a time warp in the name of defending the ‘true Balochi ethos’. According to them, the Baloch do not need schools because reading is in contradiction to the sacred tribal custom of illiteracy; besides, it is argued, schools are being constructed so that the Punjabi army might use them, for accommodation. They don’t need hospitals and dispensaries, since it would expose their womenfolk to unscrupulous practices of seeing a doctor and would usher in the foreign influence. Besides, if their forefathers had lived without such encumbrances so could they! The roads are an affront to the nomadic traditions of the Baloch and would facilitate the outsiders’ ingress into their safe havens. The establishment of cantonments in the province, like in the rest of the country, is to consolidate the hold of Punjabis over the natural resources of the Baloch. In short, the Balochis have to revel in their ignorance, poverty, pestilence and disease just to sustain the ethnocentric the sardari system.The sardari system is a legacy of the sandeman system of British subjugation of Balochistan and even as the times have drastically changed, the Baloch sardars are desperately trying to cling to this ancient relic for the sake of their personal gains and relevance. Notwithstanding that the case for Baloch nationalism is built around economic deprivation and exploitation of the Baloch masses, they themselves constitute the major stumbling block to the forces of change and progress; hijacking the direction of the legitimate Baloch aspirations and using it for securing sardars’ class interests. A new great game has begun in the region and Baloch nationalism should not become a vehicle for realising the designs of outside forces, who are intent upon exploiting the institution of Baloch sardars to accomplish their own vested interests.     The writer is a freelance columnist.

Kick Sardars out, common people should unite and destroy Sardari system.

​Panjabi characters planted by ISI in 1970’s betrayed Baloch freedom movement in the past.

Panjabi characters planted by ISI in 1970’s betrayed Baloch freedom movement in the past.

By: Waris Baloch

These are some images of Panjabi highly educated elite, who withdrawn their luxury lives and joined Baloch freedom struggle on the rigid mountains of Balochistan.
They won the heats and minds of Baloch people. None thought to speak against them because they were freedom fighters at that time but actually they were ISI agents in the shape well wishers of Balochistan.
If someone at that time think of raising question about their insentives he/she was termed as traitor because these Panjabis were the front line fighters on the mountains.
Even Nawab Khair Bakhsh Marri didn’t recognize their double game. It is quite possible that Mir Hazar Marri knew about their hidden agenda’s because also betrayed Baloch movement and now serving Pakistan ISi and its army ruthless military offensives in Balochistan.
Who these Panjabis won the trust of Baloch leadership and people?
They took part in armed activities, they wrote articles, columns and published magazines and tabloids.

They successfully penetrated into Baloch freedom ranks, they learned Baloch language fluently, they adopted Baloch culture, tradition, Baloch name, and won the hearts and minds of not only Baloch leadership but also Baloch ordinary men.
They landed from United Kingdom to Balochistan soon after completing their graduations. Baloch leadership thought they are very good speakers, writers and of courser experienced guerrilla fighters, they taught modern techniques of guerrilla warfare to Baloch freedom fighters.
After a decade of knowing each and everything (weakness, strengths of Baloch liberation struggle) they escaped from Balochistan and straight went to Islamabad, Rawalpindi in GHQ.
Believing on them Baloch faced heavy loses, their struggle was deceived by these Panjabis. Today all of them are in top positions iin Pakistan.
Some of those charectors and their role of past and now
1: Ahmed Rasheed, was a fighter and well writer after deceiving Baloch liberation struggle he become an author of Pakistan, an editor in english medium newspaper called DailyTimes.
2: Asad Rehman: He was also a very experienced shooter, a guerrilla of Baloch movement during 1970’s but fulfilling ISI’s task he also become a news editor , defense expert of Pakistan.
3: Najim Sethi: He was given the duty to publish news, article on his magazine during 1970’s. He was arrested twice but was later released by the Pakistani authorities.

Mr.Najam Sethi is now the Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (head ofPCB). He also runs a TV show called Appas Ki Bath in urdu medium Pakistani TV channel, GeoNews.
Moral of the story: Baloch nation always welcomed the support of people from all sphere of live and from all nationalities. We are secular people and struggling for the democratic Balochistan.
Tarek Fateh or anyone else, can speak on behalf of Baloch but can’t decide the fate of Baloch nation. Some Indian channels consider Tarek Fateh a Baloch which is not correct. We don’t know the motives behind is extra ordinary tone of speaking against Pakistan.
Question comes in mind that if Panjabis in the past couldn’t stand with Baloch liberation struggle who played very bold role by targeting Pakistan army on battle grounds along side Baloch freedom fihters. How another Panjabi origin Tarek Fateh can be trusted who only speaks on TV talk shows, abuses Pakistan, favors India and Balochistan?
News suggesting that some people have been arrested were planing to murder Tarek Fateh. Now question is why Pakistan can kill its own asset? We consider that was also a part of Pakistan ISI’s plan just to make people fool that Pakistan wants to eliminate Tarek Fateh because he abuses Pakistan and supporting Balochistan cause. Pakistan is trying to portray Tarek Fateh a harmful personality so people of India will not doubt hon his hidden agenda. Spreading the news of targeting Tarek Fateh obviously is the deliberate effort of Pakistan to disperse the doubts about his double game.

Tribes and Rebels: The Players in the Balochistan Insurgency

Tribes and Rebels: The Players in the Balochistan Insurgency

Publication: Terrorism Monitor Volume: 6 Issue: 7

As the violence on Pakistan’s northwest frontier dominates the headlines, a lesser-known insurgency has gripped Pakistan’s southwestern province of Balochistan. Bomb blasts and rocket attacks have become almost daily events in this region: A ten-week period in 2008 saw 76 insurgent-linked incidents reported, claiming the lives of 14 people and wounding 123 (South Asia Terrorism Portal: Balochistan Timeline 2008).

The troubled history of Balochistan dates back to the independence of Pakistan in 1947, beginning as a reaction to the annexation of the princely state of Qalat—later joined to three other states to form modern Balochistan—by Pakistani authorities in 1948. The annexation led to the first Baloch rebellion, which was swiftly put down. The security situation in the region remained fragile as rebellions erupted in 1958, 1973, and most recently in 2005.

Unlike previous anti-government insurrections, it is currently hard to pinpoint one person or group for orchestrating these incidents as there are today several groups in Balochistan potentially interested in challenging the government. The most immediate suspect is the Taliban, who are unhappy with Pakistan’s cooperation with the United States in its war on terror. The Taliban is active throughout Balochistan, particularly in Quetta and the Pashtun belt of the province, bordering with Afghanistan.

However, despite the Islamist presence, the prime motivators of the current insurgency remain Baloch nationalists, who live in the remote mountains of the province and believe they have been deprived of their rights and revenues from the considerable natural resources of their province. The nationalists believe these revenues are appropriated by the federal government with little return to the province (Ausaf, February 7, 2006).

The Baloch claim to have been native to the region since 1200 BC. Today, there are an estimated eight to nine million Baloch, living in Iran and Afghanistan as well as Pakistan. Their language consists of three main dialects: Balochi, Brahwi and Saraiki. The Balochistan province of Pakistan is one of the important Baloch settlements in the region, located at the eastern edge of the Iranian plateau and in the border region between southwest, central and south Asia. It is geographically the largest of the four provinces of Pakistan and composes 48 percent of the nation’s total territory.

Though the Baloch have a long history of mistrust of the central government of Pakistan, the federal government has its own interpretation of the current tensions, claiming that the hostile situation is provoked by Baloch nationalist leaders who consider large-scale initiatives to develop the region as a threat to their influence. President Pervez Musharraf even accused the leading tribal chiefs of the Baloch tribes of Bugti, Marri and Mingal of playing a direct role in the mounting insurgency (Daily Dunya, August 25, 2006; Dawn [Karachi], July 21, 2006).

The Baloch Tribes

• The Bugti tribe is one of approximately 130 Baloch tribes, with approximately 180,000 members dwelling mainly in the mountainous region of Dera Bugti. The tribe is divided into the sub-tribes of Rahija Bugti, Masori Bugti and Kalpar Bugti. For decades this tribe has been dominated by the Rahija Bugti family of Akbar Khan Bugti, a prominent Baloch nationalist. Before he took the chieftainship at 12 years of age in 1939, his father and grandfather were leaders of the tribe.

Unlike some other traditional Baloch tribal families, the Akbar Bugti’s family was considered moderate, as Akbar’s grandfather, Shahbaz Khan Bugti, was knighted by Britain, and Akbar Bugti himself was educated at Oxford and held several of the most powerful political positions in the country: governor, chief minister of Balochistan and federal interior minister. Until his death in 2006 in an air and ground assault by Pakistani security forces, Akbar Bugti was also chief of the Jamhuri Watan Party, established in 1990 (Bakhabar, August 27, 2006).

The issue of royalties and the ownership of gas fields—discovered in Akbar Bugti’s hometown of Dera Bugti and providing 39 percent of the country’s total requirement—remained the main cause of conflict between the tribal chief and the government. Pakistani officials claim that Akbar Bugti was paid around $4 million annually in royalties, but used these resources to blackmail the state and build a state-within-the-state (Khabrain, August 6, 2006). Islamabad’s response, such as supporting rival Kalpar Bugtis—who denounced Akbar Bugti’s chieftainship—and deploying troops in Dera Bugti, led Akbar Bugti and his followers to take arms against the government.

Akbar Bugti’s son, Nawabzada Talal Akbar Bugti, has rejected Prime Minister Gillani’s offer of negotiations conditional on laying down arms, saying that the Baloch people will only do so after they have achieved their rights and gained complete autonomy (ANI, April 3). Another son, Jamil Akbar Bugti, is currently fighting a freeze on his assets on the placement of his name on Pakistan’s exit control list (APP, March 28). A grandson, Nawab Sardar Brahamdagh Khan Bugti, is a major leader of Baloch militants.

• The Marri is another major Baloch tribe, based in the Kohlo district of Balochistan. Their chief, Nawab Khair Bakhsh Marri, was branded by President Musharraf as the “troublemaker Sardar” (tribal chief). The Marri are also divided into sub-tribes: the Gazni Marri, Bejarani Marri and Zarkon Marri, with Khair Bakhsh Marri belonging to the Gazni faction. The total population of the Marri tribe in Balochistan is reportedly around 98,000 and the nature of their relationship with the government is historically hostile—they have integrated little into the political structure of the country.

Unlike the leader of the Bugti tribe, the chieftain of the Marri is said to be closer to the communists, his sons graduating from schools in Moscow. Unable to withstand the Pakistani military, he and dozens of his followers took refuge in Kabul in 1979, remaining there until Russia withdrew. Khair Bakhsh Marri remains committed to an armed struggle for no less than full independence for Balochistan despite losing dozens of followers and relatives, most recently his son Balach Marri, who reportedly led a rebel group of the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) (Balochistan Express, November 22, 2007).

• Ataullah Khan Mingal, leader of the Mingal tribe and another trouble-maker in Musharraf’s eyes, has played a dominant role in the political history of Baloch in the region. Unlike the other tribes, the Mingals have given little military resistance, although Ataullah never denounced the anti-government armed resistance.

The party in which he began his political career was the National Awami Party (NAP), led by Pashtun nationalist Wali Khan. Following the elections of May 1972, in which the party swept Balochistan, Atualla Mingal took power as the first chief minister of Balochistan. His role in the NAP-led London Plan—a secret meeting of Pashtun and Baloch nationalists in London, allegedly to prepare ground for declaring the independence of the North-West Frontier Province and Balochistan—is the peak of his nationalistic political career, which led to his imprisonment in 1973. Subsequently the federal government began large-scale military operations in Balochistan to crush the nationalists (BBC Urdu, February 11, 2005).

Following his release from prison in the late 1970s, Atualla Mingal went into exile in London, returning in the mid-1990s to establish the Balochistan National Party (BNP), which brought his son Akhtar Mingal to power as chief minister of Balochistan. Mingal junior was jailed by Musharraf in September 2006 on charges of terrorism, due to his alleged involvement with the recent Baloch insurgency against the Pakistan government.

Tribal Leaders and Insurgent Groups

Since Musharraf came to power in 1999 there have been other goals besides independence that have drawn Baloch nationalists together. The most influential Baloch leaders—Akbar Khan Bugti, Khair Bakhsh Marri and Ataulla Khan Mingal—have had a variety of reasons to be suspicious of the government’s involvement in the area, which they viewed as an attempt to de-seat them from tribal chieftainship. Government moves have included state support to rival factions within the tribe and the deployment of military forces into the region (Bakhabar, August 27, 2006). Nevertheless, no tribal chief is ready to tie himself to insurgent groups publicly, though military sources remain skeptical that the authoritarian tribal chiefs are ignorant of who is firing rockets in their territory.

Currently at least five insurgent groups are publicly known in Balochistan, including the Baloch Republican Army (BRA), Baloch People’s Liberation Front (BPLF), Popular Front for Armed Resistance (PFAR), Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA), and the Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF), the last two being the largest and most widely-known.

Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA)

The BLA’s political stance is unequivocal: They stand for the sole goal of establishing an independent state for Baloch in the Balochistan province of Pakistan. The roots of the BLA date back to 1973, during the period of resistance against military operations in Balochistan and the discovery of the secret NAP-led London Plan.

Though the movement did not become public until 2000, some sources claim that the BLA was a Russian creation and came into being during the Afghan war, propped up as a reaction to Pakistan’s anti-Soviet involvement in Afghanistan (Dawn, July 15, 2006). Those supporting this claim point to the Moscow education of the alleged leader of BLA, Balach Marri, and the time he spent in Russia and Afghanistan.

The number of BLA activists is not known, but Pakistani military sources suggest that there are currently 10,000 Baloch insurgents involved in separatist activities, of which 3,000 are active in the insurgency. The government implicates India and Afghanistan in supporting the movement. President Musharraf reportedly presented a damning file regarding these allegations to President Karzai during his visit to Afghanistan in late February 2006 (The News [Islamabad], April 16, 2006). Despite these allegations and regardless of any possible outside support, the nature of the BLA’s activities has a local focus, with no foreign nationals being arrested with proven involvement in the Baloch insurgency.

Baloch Liberation Front (BLF)

The BLF, like the other Baloch insurgent groups, recently re-emerged as a potential threat in the region, claiming responsibility for deadly and frequent attacks on government installations. The BLF has so far escaped state accusations of organized terrorism, although its operations seem far bigger than those of other factions. The seventh article of its charter—from the pro-Marri nationalist website sarmachar.org—describes the struggle as a holy duty of all Baloch and asks for moral and financial, if not military, participation. The tenth article says: “The independent state is a matter of life and death for Baloch.” This organization, describing itself as an army of volunteers, also offers a complete program for a post-independence state, ranging from education and health policies to issues of foreign policy and internal and external security.

Some reports suggest that the BLF was established in Damascus in 1964 by Baloch nationalist Juma Khan Marri, who in the 1970s and 1980s was seen actively meeting with the communist regime in Moscow and Kabul. The BLF played an active role in the resistance against military operations in 1973, which continued until the collapse of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s regime. These clashes reportedly took the lives of 3,000 soldiers and around 5,000 Baloch rebels.

It is not clear on what scale the BLF currently operates and who leads it, though Akbar Bugti once described it as an autonomous organization that operated independently of tribal chiefs (Newsline, February 2005).

Conclusion

Regardless of the number of Baloch insurgents, the nature and scale of their activities since 2000 have marked their emergence as a major threat toward regional security, with Pakistan’s new government—elected on February 18—apparently recognizing this threat. Soon after the election, the victorious politicians began signalling the adoption of a softer approach to ease tension in Balochistan. The election was boycotted by the Baloch nationalist parties in response to ongoing military operations in Balochistan that began in 2005.

As a first step to change the tense atmosphere, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has hinted at accommodating some Baloch nationalists under its political umbrella and has accepted their demand to stop military operations in the region. The nomination of Aslam Raisani, an independently elected Baloch member of parliament, for the post of provisional chief minister in Balochistan by the PPP is another signal directed at winning hearts and minds in the province.

It is unclear whether these policies and the appointment of Raisani as a chief minister may bring a major breakthrough, but soon after his nomination, Raisani hinted at taking a completely different approach toward the crisis from the military-based policies of the Musharraf regime. Recently he was quoted by local media saying that the so-called rebel Baloch are his own brothers and if he could not make them agree to lay down their arms, he will step down (Daily Zamana, March 9).

The question of an independent state remains a tricky issue, but some moderate Baloch voices say that independence is no longer a priority for the Baloch majority, as they are struggling to survive due to the devastating effect of hostilities on the local economy. The economic structure of Balochistan is where the future of the region begins. Involving local Baloch in the large-scale economic projects proposed for the province will be a major step in winning their confidence; otherwise there is no reason to believe that the tense political situation in Balochistan will not deteriorate further
