History of Balochistan
Balochistan It was conquered by the British Empire on October 1, 1887 and became part of British India. In 1948, the year after the partition of India, it formally became part of Pakistan. Since then, a number of separatist groups Called BLA (Balochitan Liberation army ) in the province have engaged in armed against the Pakistani government—and Iranian government first led by Prince Karim Khan in 1948, and later by Nawab Nowroz Khan in 1968. These tribal uprisings were limited in scope. A more serious insurgency was led by the Marri and Mengal tribes between 1973 and 1977. All these groups fought for the existence of a "Greater Balochistan"—a single independent state ruled under tribal jirgas (a tribal system of government) and comprising the historical Balochistan region, presently split between Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. In 2005 there was another struggle to achieve these aims, in 2006, the Pakistan army killed Nawab Akbar Bugti, the man they blamed for the violence. Inshallah soon Balochistan will be a great country in the world Mordeh baad doshman Balochistan Leadership Members of the BLA are from the Baloch community, some believe that 50% percent of fighters of the Baloch Liberation Army members are from the Marri tribe and the rest is other Balochs from all over Balochistan. Balach MarriRegarding the leadership of the BLA, no one knows that who heads this clandestine network of Baloch guerillas. Some believe that Mir Balach Marri, son of Baloch tribal leader Nawab Khair Bakhsh Marri, was the head of the BLA but Balach denied this, stating he knew of the BLA but he is not their chief but supports them morally and physically. Balach Marri survived an attack by Pakistani Special Service Group (SSG) on 26 August 2006, in which another well-known Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti was killed.
In addition to Balach Marri, the grandsons of Akbar Khan Bugti, Brahamdagh Khan Bugti and Mir Aley also survived. However, Balach Marri was killed in another attack on November 21, 2007. Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti was buried at Dera Bugti in a private ceremony. Mir Balaach Marri, the perceived head of the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA), was killed on 20 November 2007, his killing triggered a wave of violence in Balochistan and led to broad condemnation, Benazir Bhutto said the killing was “a bad omen for the integrity of the Federation”, whilst the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan said "the incident was likely to increase the anger of the people of Balochistan against the Pakistan Government". The cause and location of his death are unknown. There are at least three locations quoted for the incident, ranging from Helmand province in Afghanistan (in a mistaken NATO airstrike), to the Pak-Afghan border in the Nushki area, to Kahan area in Kohlu district in the Marri tribal area, the latter two at the hands of the Pakistani security forces, his killing sparked a wave of violence in Quetta. Although a BLA spokesman confirmed the killing of the BLA commander, he was reluctant to give out any further information as to location or how many of his comrades may have been killed with him, for fear, he said, of compromising the safety of other BLA fighters.  Allegations of Terrorism The Balochistan Liberation Army has been listed as an organisation that funds, and promotes terrorism. On 17 July 2006 the government of the United Kingdom listed the BLA as a terrorist outfit and banned their members from the UK.

بلوچستان، یعني سرزمين بلوچها، منطقهای است باير و ناهموار با
مرزهایي نامشخص كه جنوب شرق ايران، جنوب غرب پاكستان، و تا حدي
جنوب افغانستان را شامل ميشود. بلوچستان مکان تاريخي استقرار
بلوچها و همچنين تعداد زيادي براهو (Brahui)
و پشتونها، و تعداد كمي جات (Jats)
و لسيها (Lassis)
ميباشد. پنجابيها و سنديها نیز به طور فزایندهای از ساير
ايالات پاكستان به بلوچستان پاكستان كوچ ميكنند.
