11 August, Independence day of Balochistan?

10 Aug

After the Social media boom in Pakistan, and so much news channels, it become very much difficult to know that what is real and what is the fake story.

Among few fake stories, now a days, some Baloch Fake ids are spreading since Musheraf government time that “11 August is the Independence day of Balochistan”.

Among this lie series, the biggest and most quoted lie is “Balochistan become the part of Pakistan with force”, by knowingly or unknowingly they shrink whole “Balochistan” to “Kalat state”, it is totally wrong to refer Kalat state as “Balochistan”.

Fact is in 1947 time, Balochistan consisted of four princely states three of them were Makran,LasBela and Kharan.These state willingly joined with Pakistan in 1947 during the Partition of sub continent and  Fourth state was Kalat State.

From Below Comments:

The 11 Aug 1947 event was essentially Kalat’s attempt to break away, but the agreement the Khan and Quaid-e-Azam signed on 4 Aug 1947 essentially made Kalat accept the suzerainty of Pakistan and that Pakistan would control Kalat’s foreign affairs, defence etc pending any negotiations!

Nationalists often cite how Kalat’s upper and lower houses rejected idea of joining Pakistan, but they leave the fact out that firstly these houses only had representatives of Kalat and Makran (none from Kharan, Lasbela or British Baluchistan province) and that they were essentially dummy advisory parliaments that the Khan had given little or no powers on.

The Khan wanted to be supreme ruler of Kalat and its states, and that did not bode well with Jam Ghulam Qadir Khan of Lasbela, Nawab Habibullah Khan Nausherwani of Kharan, and Nawab Bai Khan Gichki of Makran. All of them were related to Khan via marriages but they did not want the Khan to decide their destiny and all of them had a history of opposing too much control sought by Kalat on their territories for centuries.

So they were easily persuaded to join Pakistan by March 1948 just to avoid the Khan’s desire for complete control. British Baluchistan had already joined Pakistan by 1947 thanks to vote of Shahi Jirga and Quetta Municipal Board, and the accession of Kharan, Lasbela, and the Makran meant that Kalat was now screwed and surrounded by Pakistani territory! Meaning the Khan realised his folly and signed accessed on 17 March 1948.

Army only entered Kalat because the Khan’s brother, Abdul Karim, had rebelled against Pakistan with some 100 followers and attempted to launch an armed struggle which proved to be futile.

About army operation against Khan of Kalat, Khan of Kalat Meer Ahmed Yar Khan himself  wrote in his biography book that operation was because of the misinformation, which was created by army generals of that time.

After that so-called “operation”, Khan of Kalat remained with Pakistan, never spoke against Pakistan and never supported any rebellion activity. Here is picture of Khan of Kalat sitting with Akber Bugti and Bhuto:

Later, Khan Of Kalat also become the Governor of Balochistan, And one most of Pakistanis dont know that Khan of Kalat, served Pakistani government as a “Ambesstor of Pakistan in Holand

Here is video of “Shaheed-E-Balochistan” Akber Bugti (in Balochi language) explaining the Merger of Pakistan with Balochistan:

Acording to AKber Bugti: After UK decieded to leave sub continent, the representatives of Baloch were asked about their decision to Join Pakistan or India, the Majority of Baloch Leaders vote for Pakistan, and than hence Balochistan became the part of Pakistan.

Akber Bugti further said: As our forefathers remained loyal to this country(Pakistan), till this date we proudly say that we are loyal to this country. Our respect and loyalty is still like our forefathers.

This same Akber Bugti went on mountains against the army operation during Musheraf time, but during that fight he never speak against Pakistan and never raise the slogan of “Azad Balochistan”.

    it is important to understand that the Khan of Kalat’s quest for independence was purely to do with his desire to form a state that is subservient to him and his will alone. He had lofty ambitions of trying to be the next Naseer Khan Noori of the 18th Century, but he forgot that even the great Naseer Khan and his Khanate of Kalat were essentially vassals of the Safavids of Persia and directly under influence of Ahmed Shah Durrani of Afghanistan.

    The British then replaced the Safavid/Afghan hold over Kalati states with various agreement in 19th century that culminated with Kalat recognising British suzerainty in 1876 treaty. The 11 Aug 1947 event was essentially Kalat’s attempt to break away, but the agreement the Khan and Quaid-e-Azam signed on 4 Aug 1947 essentially made Kalat accept the suzerainty of Pakistan and that Pakistan would control Kalat’s foreign affairs, defence etc pending any negotiations!

    So Kalat’s independence, much like Sikkim’s independence from India until 1975, was nothing more than a fancy name of retaining autonomy and avoiding direct control from Pakistan.

    Nationalists often cite how Kalat’s upper and lower houses rejected idea of joining Pakistan, but they leave the fact out that firstly these houses only had representatives of Kalat and Makran (none from Kharan, Lasbela or British Baluchistan province) and that they were essentially dummy advisory parliaments that the Khan had given little or no powers on.

    The Khan wanted to be supreme ruler of Kalat and its states, and that did not bode well with Jam Ghulam Qadir Khan of Lasbela, Nawab Habibullah Khan Nausherwani of Kharan, and Nawab Bai Khan Gichki of Makran.

    and of course the Khan was so desperate to avoid becoming part of Pakistan that he was willing to accede to India or remain part of British Empire. But both of them had no interest to take on Kalat.

    He wasnt the smartest of men lol

    Khan Kalat’s Son Calls For Collective Efforts to Stabilize Pakistan

    http://www.thebalochhal.com/2012/08/khan-kalats-son-calls-for-collective-efforts-to-stabilize-pakistan/

    ZIARAT: Prince Mohammad Khan Ahmadzai, a son of the Khan of Kalat Mir Suleman Dawood, has called for collective efforts for the stabilization of Pakistan by sinking personal differences.

    He was the chief guest of an event at Quaid-e-Azam Residency in Ziarat on Tuesday which was organized to celebrate Pakistan’s independence day. The event was sponsored by the Pakistani military as Baloch nationalists had called for a black day on this occasion.

    While Suleman Dawood is a staunch supporter and leader of the movement for an independent Balochistan, his son has, ironically, emerged as a major embarrassment for the father due to his very close ties with the Pakistani military establishment.

    The son of the Kan of Kalat said, “we achieved Pakistan after a lot of sacrifices and now it is our duty to sink our personal differences and play a positive role for Pakistan’s security and stability.

    @ Saleem that map of the Balochistan Union is incorrect. The correct map is this one:
