11 August, Independence day of Balochistan?

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”.
