Who is the Balochistan Liberation Front
The Balochistan Liberation Army began in the 1970s during the reign of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. At that time, this small terrorist organization had tormented the Pakistani army in the region of Balochistan. When the military dictator Ziaul Haq came to power in Pakistan, he negotiated with the Baloch leaders and concluded an undisclosed ceasefire with this organization. This organization consists mainly of two tribes from Pakistan, the fighters Miri and Bugti.
Baluch anger fueled by Pervez Musharraf’s mandate
Since then, the Balochistan Liberation Army has not committed any major incidents for a long time. But, when Nawab Miri, of the justice of the High Court of Balochistan, was killed around 2000, when Pervez Musharraf took power in Pakistan. The Pakistani army arrested Baloch leader Khair Baksh Miri in this case at the request of the government. The Baloch Liberation Army has since resumed operations.
