VIEW: Reconciling with Balochistan —Ishrat Saleem

The utterly arrogant attitude of the military regime led by General Pervez Musharraf toward the Baloch that culminated in the killing of Nawab Akbar Bugti in August 2006 forced the Baloch to rethink their approach of waging the conflict of interests. Instead of relying on political means, a section of the Baloch youth has taken up arms against the state. The radicalisation of the Baloch movement due to the ill-advised policies of the Musharraf regime has made the prospects of peace very bleak. The Baloch insurgents are not fighting for their rights anymore; they want to separate from Pakistan
