It accounts for nearly half the land mass of Pakistan and only 3.6% of its total population. The province is immensely rich in natural resources, including oil, gas, copper and gold.

His periodic movements, apart from many other reasons came about because he never had to contend with a subordinate status. Tribal wars and jealousies, although they had their roots in economic competition, were also due to efforts by one tribe to gain supremacy over another, which were actively resisted. The Baloch was unsettled and preferred a nomadic life because in that he felt himself truly emancipated. During the Khanate, although Balochistan theoretically was supposed to be under Afghan hegemony, for all practical purposes various Khans of Kalat never accepted the Afghan over lordship.

These documents are the only major recorded sources on the internal events in Balochistan during the period between 1860 and 1928 The Anglo-Persian Policies and the Division of Balochistan Western B…
