Balochistan is Pakistan’s largest province rich with natural gas, gold and copper. Located on the borders of Iranand Afghanistan, land of the Balochs, where the first Baloch confederacy was founded in 1666, has had a bitter history ofexploitation and suppression by a strictly centralized federal government heavily influenced by the country’s military.While the central government and the province confronted each other four times since the forceful annexation ofthe Baloch land into Pakistan in 1948, the ongoing movement entails more systematic and radical dimensions. Malik SirajAkbar, editor of the The Baloch Hal, the first online English newspaper of Balochistan, takes a look at the last one decadehow the dimensions of the Baloch movement changed.A Hubert Humphrey Fellow at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, Malik revealsthe “enforced disappearance” of hundreds of Baloch political workers and their brutal murder by the Pakistani securityservices under a “kill and dump” policy during detention in a phenomenon similar to Argentina’s Dirty War. The bookanalyzes growing state-sponsored radicalization in secular Balochistan.Malik is the most widely quoted journalist on Balochistan. He insists that the killing of former governorNawab Akbar Bugti, 79, by Pervez Musharraf’s regime proved as the 9/11 of Pakistan’s relations with theresourceful province. The Balochistan question merits attention of the international community not only for a stablePakistan but also to provide the world alternative options for a secular buffer state between Iran and Afghanistan ifPakistan falls in the hands of Islamists.
