The Baloch Battle Field

Nawab Akbar Bugti was never an 'anti-Pakistan' leader, but one who voted for Baluchistan’s accession to Pakistan in the Baloch Shahi Jirga held in 1947 at Quetta. But while he recognized himself as a Pakistani, he remained a staunch Baloch nationalist as well, often locking horns with the federal government over the discrimination that Balochistan faced. He demanded that the wealth generated from the natural resources of Baluchistan must be utilized for the uplifting of the Baloch people.
