why Balouch. needs independence? because they are -Muslims??
Balochs are not religious fanatics like punjabies & pashtun. I am pashtun myself. Yousufzai tribe.
Balochs are very secular people, they are backward though, they have their own tribal culture. Baloch are not fighting for islam. They are fighting for their secular nation. Independent balochistan.
Let's go back in history. I don't remember dates.
Pakistan's army captain raped a "memon" female doctor in dera bugti.
Nawab akbar bugti, took this as a sign of threat to local population. Balochs protect women from rape in their areas.
Bugti tribe attacked military compounds with hundreds of rockets, RPGs.
Musharraf in response attacked nawab akbar bugti's mansion with air fighter jets f.16 and killed more than 70 Hindus living close to Nawab akbar bugti mansion.
Nawab survived and moved to mountains.
A long insurgency started against Pakistan which is still going on.
Later on Nawab was killed by Pakistani army in cave.
Nawab's grandson bharamdagh bugti is now leading insurgency against Pakistan from Switzerland, Geneva.
