The true history of Balochistan is never shared or talked about among the general public of Pakistan

Balochistan consists of the south west of Pakistan. In the west it borders with Afghanistan and Iran and in the south it has the Arabian Sea. It accounts for nearly half the land mass of Pakistan and only 3.6% of its total population. The province is immensely rich in natural resources, including oil, gas, copper and gold. Despite these huge deposits of mineral wealth, the area is one of the poorest regions of Pakistan. ... Read more »

The dancing men


By: Aziz Kingrani

Anyone entering Balochistan province from any direction is sure to be caught by the eye-catching and magnetic natural beauty, as the entire area looks like a holiday resort with unique natural attractiveness. Its vast coastal area, wonderful mountainous valleys, arresting waterfalls, undefeatable high mountain ranges and hillocks, stunning springs and climate makes one feel like staying there forever.

Ancient remains of life and civilisation can be found in Balochistan, as water, being a basic necessity of life, existed in the vales and mountains, while some remains of archaeological sites and cave paintings have been found in Balochistan.

Several sites of cave paintings on rocks have been registered in upper Balochistan but the sites of cave paintings of lower Balochistan are still unexplored — for instance the cave paintings of Tharia cave in Pabu mountain near Qili (village) Chatoka Bhit (mound) in the valley of Pallimas, Tahseel Wadh, Khuzdar District, which I visited this year in March. ...

Prologue
The ancestral homeland of the Baloch people is called Balochistan, yet today
the Baloch are not the masters of their own country. A series of calamitous

have prevented the Baloch people from determining their own future.
A defining point in the history of Balochistan, however, was in 1666 when
different Baloch confederacies were unified and brought under a single
Baloch national state. Following from this moment of national unity, the
Baloch nation established reciprocal diplomatic relations with their
neighbours and beyond.  ... Read more »
