We’ve seen a lot of hue and cry in recent times over the unrest in the states of Palestine ,Iraq and Syria.Human rights activists have shown great concern over the prevailing situation in the above states.
March 27, has a great degree of importance in the history of Indian subcontinent but have been neglected by almost everyone. On this very date in the year 1948, Pakistan Army invaded the independent state of Balochistan. The then President and father of the Islamic state of Pakistan Mr. Mohammad Ali Jinnah pressured the khan of kalat Mr. Ahmad Yar Khan for dissolving his independent state and signing a treaty for accession.
Since then, the state has been facing unrest. Balochistan is the poorest state of Pakistan despite the fact that it being a mineral rich region.
