🔴 In an apparent reconciliation bid, Bugti met with senior Pakistani officials two years ago. But he now sees little chance of a political resolution. “We have never given up on a political course, but it’s the Pakistani military that has always adopted the violent path,” he said.
Bugti now sees no option but to soldier on. “If someone thinks that they can achieve their ultimate goal [of independence] then it is impossible. It is something people on the ground have to do themselves,” he noted. “The only thing we can do here is to tell the world about the reality of Balochistan and the problems there.”
