The Book on Baloch history was launched in London
Organized by Baloch Human Rights Council (UK), World Sindhi Congress and Sindhi-Baloch Forum, the book launching ceremony of ‘The Baloch and Balochistan’ was held in the London University on December, 1 2012.
Various speakers termed the book by Dr. Naseer Dashti as the most comprehensive and objective piece of work on the history of the Baloch and Balochistan. Prominent among the speakers who deliberated on various aspects of the Baoch history mentioned in the book included Waja Akber Barakzai, Dr. Lakhu Luhana , Dr. Mustafa Baloch, Samad Baloch, Mehrab Baloch, Faisal Baloch, Abdullah Baloch,  Ghulam Raza Hossainbhor , Hassan Hamdam, Rahim Bandvoi , Ismael Amiri, and Ms Negar Hossainbor.
Ms Ambreen Hisbani of World Sindhi Congress moderated the proceedings of the event and there was also a question answer session in which the author Dr. Naseer Dashti replied to various queries from the audience.
The book was termed as the first serious attempt to trace the origin of the Baloch and their long and arduous journey from the Caucasus, through the vast stretches of Iranian plateau to the present day Balochistan, dealing with all aspects of their history beginning from Aryan migrations to the occupation of their state by Pakistan in 1948. The speakers observed that the author has made some important historical discoveries during his ventures into the foggy maze of ancient Baloch history. Discovery of Balashakan as the original homeland of the Baloch and present Baloch being the Blaschik of ancient Balashakan was observed as the most significant discoveries of the research work. It was also observed that the book is invaluable in clarifying certain legends regarding the perception of some of the Baloch tribes coming from Syria. It was also pointed out that the book deals objectively with the causes of the Baloch state on two occasions, firstly by the British in 1939 and the subsequent division of the Baloch land and secondly by Pakistan in 1948.
