Nawabzada Jamil Bugti proposes referendum for Balochistan’s future


Quetta:  Nawabzad Jamil Bugti, a son of slain Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti, has suggest that a referendum should be held in Balochistan so that the Baloch could decide whether they want to live with Pakistan.

Addressing a press conference on Saturday, he demanded that Dera Ghazi Khan district of Punjab should be included in Balochistan and Pashtoon dominated areas should also be separated from the province after holding a referendum.

He said that Pakistan was the single country in the world where was the business as usual after the conviction of its prime minister.

Bugti said that courts orders were not being implemented. He said that people who had been abducted should be released as part of efforts to improve situation in Balochistan.

To a question, he said that India would interfere in Balochistan for its interest not for the people of Balochistan.


  1. It is not understandable why our leadership is closing its eyes on this serious matter. 

    Firstly Balochis and the other provinces are parts of one big family; Pakistan.  As such their grievances MUST be adressed forthwith.  If the Federal / Provincial governments fail to do this, the people of other provinces should rise to the occasion in aid of their brothers. 

    Secondly it should be clear to everyone that this feeling found in Balochistan is not only from deprivation.  Rather it is part of the larger Global game where the imperialists need ground to keep control on Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan.  It is hoped that our Baloch brothers understand this game plan.  The imperialists are friends of none!

    It is therefore important that we resolve the issues, whatever they are, within out family.
