BALOUCHISTAN WAS NEVER PART OF PAKISTAN; MILITARY INVADED, OCCUPIED IT: ALTAF HUSSAIN

The people of Balouchistan are at war with the military establishment demanding freedom from the clutches of slavery imposed onto them. The military establishment has used all demonic actions against them so as to suppress their voice of freedom – Founder & Leader of MQM

The House of Common of the Parliament of Kalat had on Dec 14, 1947 rejected with the consensus Pakistan’s idea of Kalat’s merger into Pakistan – Founder & Leader of MQM

M. A. Jinnah was not only the founder of Pakistan bit was also the Governor General, the apex position in the newly founded state of Pakistan but the military establishment had forced him not to have dialogue with the state of Kalat and appointed a Colonel S. B. Shah to have dialogue instead – Founder & Leader of MQM


Military establishment had despatched troops to coastal areas of Pasni, Jeewani and Turbat on Mar 26, 1948. On Mar 27, 1948, the military of Pakistan invaded Kalat and on gun point forced Khan of Kalat to sign a document that pertained to merger of Kalat – Founder & Leader of MQM



Balochistan has never been part of Pakistan. The province was captured by the military of Pakistan on gun point in March 1948. Balouchistan was on gun point held hostage and was compelled to accept to merge with Pakistan.

“The people of Balouchistan are at war with the military establishment demanding freedom from the clutches of slavery imposed onto them.” “The military establishment has used all demonic actions against them so as to suppress their voice of freedom.”

All honest military officers and non-commissioned officers have to decide whether they would allow Pakistan to be under control of corrupt Generals or would they choose to protect the country from them.

Muttahidda Qaumi Movement’s (MQM) founder and leader Mr. Altaf Hussain stated this while giving a special lecture to his worldwide audience and viewers especially Balouch students and youth through social media on “The Issue of Balouchistan and its historical perspective.”

While sharing detail on the demography of Balouchistan, he said that Balouchistan’s area is 347190 square kilometer and its population is 2,344,408 as per Census held in 2017. It is surrounded by Punjab and Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa in North east and Sindh in South East. It constitutes a total of Pakistan’s 44 percent area. Overall population of Balouch in Balouchistan and other parts of Pakistan is not less than 30 million. From the administrative point of view, it has 32 Districts, 6 Divisions and 137 Tehsils.


He said that Mir Chakar Khan was first Balouch community chief in 15th century. After British Empire had occupied Asia, it reached an accord called Kalat Accord with Khan in 1875 under which Makran, Kharan, Lasbella and Kalat were declared Princely States meaning these were held as independent states.

At the time when the sub-continent India’s division into different independent states had come, Balouchistan was still not part of the sub-continent India and its status as independent state was intact. In 1893, the British Empire drew Durand Line from Chitral to Afghanistan and thus this particular area was divided, he added.

He said that three months prior to inception of Pakistan, a meeting of British Empire representative Khan of Kalat and Mir Yar Muhammad Khan was held with the founder of Pakistan Muhammad Ali Jinnah in which detailed discussion about Balouchistan was done. After that meeting a presser was released on Aug 11, 1947, which read as follows;

Government of Pakistan recognizes Balouchistan as an independent state and its position as compared to other states would remain quite different
Government of Pakistan would seek legal recommendations on accords reached between the British Empire and state of Kalat,
Until the agreement between Government of Pakistan and state of Kalat reach a new accord, the status of state of Kalat would remain as it is.
In order to establish a consensus on foreign, interior and financial affairs, further dialogue would be held between the Government of Pakistan and state of Kalat in Karachi.
Mr. Hussain said that Pakistan came into being on Aug 14, 1947 and Khan of Kalat had on the following day announced free status of Kalat in a public assembly followed by election in Kalat. National Party swept the elections and Nawabzada Aslam sworn in as Prime Minister of Kalat. He said that the Parliament of Kalat had two sections on the pattern of British Parliament, House of Commons and House of Lords. Kalat as an independent state had also opened its embassy in Karachi with flag of independent Kalat.


He had on that occasion, displayed an article published in Pakistan’s popular English newspaper, daily The Nation and that article also carried the flag of independent Kalat.

In Sep 1947, Prime Minister of Kalat Nawabzada M. Aslam and foreign minister D. Y. Fell came to Karachi for a meeting in light of founder of Pakistan M. A. Jinnah’s and Khan of Kalat’s consensus held earlier for finalizing affairs of the two separate states, Pakistan and Kalat but Prime Minister of Kalat was severely pressed for joining Pakistan, said the Movement’s founder and leader.

He said that M. A. Jinnah had recognised Kalat as an independent state on Aug 11, 1947 but on the pressure from the then establishment and military, he had also stepped back from his decision he had made in October 1947. Later, Khan of Kalat visited Karachi on invitation of founder of Pakistan to have dialogue with the founder of Pakistan on status of Kalat but Khan of Kalat was pressed for merging Kalat into Pakistan. Khan of Kalat plainly refused to accept that dictation and said that since Balouchistan was home of different tribes so he alone could not decide about the fate of Kalat. He also said that he would first speak to the Parliament of Kalat and then he would say something on it. Then Khan of Kalat requisitioned the session of the House of Common of the Parliament of Kalat on Dec 12, 1947. The House of Common had after two days debate rejected with the consensus Pakistan’s idea of Kalat’s merger into Pakistan on Dec 14, 1947.


Mr. Hussain said that the House of Common also passed a resolution which read as, “There should not be merger of Kalat with Pakistan but the later should establish friendly relations with the earlier as is the basis of bilateral relations. ON Jan 1948, the House of Lords of the Parliament also rejected Pakistan’s demand for the merger and passé a resolution in strict opposition and rejection.

He said that the Prime Minister of Kalat had then reached Karachi and met with M. A. Jinnah and informed him of the decision of the House of Common. On Feb 1948, the Prime Minister of Kalat M. Aslam was handed a letter from the founder of Pakistan M. A. Jinnah. That letter carried direct instructions to him that he should immediately announce the merger of Kalat to Pakistan. In the meantime, the military establishment of Pakistan used pressure tactic and forced other states of Kharan, Makran and Lasbella to accept the merger with Pakistan.

On Mar 9, 1948, M. A. Jinnah wrote to Khan of Kalat in which he stated that he was unable to have dialogue with him in his personal capacity and that the Government of Pakistan would see the matter onward, added Mr. Hussain.

He said that M. A. Jinnah was not only the founder of Pakistan bit was also the Governor General, the apex position in the newly founded state of Pakistan but the military establishment had forced him not to have dialogue with the state of Kalat and appointed a Colonel S. B. Shah to have dialogue instead.

Mr. Hussain said that the military establishment had despatched troops to coastal areas of Pasni, Jeewani and Turbat on Mar 26, 1948. On Mar 27, 1948, the military of Pakistan invaded Kalat and on gun point forced Khan of Kalat to sign a document that pertained to merger of Kalat. Thus Kalat was added to Pakistan on gun point by the military of Pakistan and it was officially announced at Karachi that Khan of Kalat had merged the state of Kalat to Pakistan.

He said that the House of Common and the House of Lords had both rejected the merger of Kalat and passed resolutions in utter opposition and the British Empire had also not placed Balouchistan under India’s control.


Mr. Hussain said that it has been proven as per history that Balouchistan was neither part of Pakistan before the conception of it not was part of it after it was founded but Pakistan invaded Balouchistan and occupied it. Pakistan’s military and its different agencies are levying atrocities on to the people of Balouchistan only to keep it as part of Pakistan and the voices for freedom are being silenced. This is the real issue of Balouchistan.

He asked the honest Generals and non-commissioned officers to decide whether they would come forward for protecting Pakistan or would allow the corrupt military Generals to destroy her. It is unavoidable that the corrupt Generals should be rid of.
