Baloch Ethnic Nationalism in Pakistan: From Guerrilla War to Nowhere?
In 1962, when Henry Kissinger was in Pakistan on a troubleshooting mission for US President J. F. Kennedy, a local journalist asked him to comment on Baloch insurgency. His answer was: 'I wouldn't recognize the Balochistan problem, (even) if it hit me in the face.' 1 But in 1973, when Baloch nationalists were pitted against the Pakistan armed forces, Balochistan had become one of the most volatile conflict regions for the two super powers. Today, Baloch nationalism has once again become a non-issue. This paper explores the emergence, growth, radicalisation and de-escalation of Baloch nationalism.
