Before the partition, Balochistan was one of the most neglected regions of the vast Indian subcontinent. It’s precarious geographic location had made it a bone of contention between the Afghans, the Persians and the ruling British Raj. Though a certain degree of anonymity was granted to the Shahi Jirga, the administrative control was still firmly in British hands. The regions overwhelming Muslim majority meant that when the flames of independence had been lit, with a demand for Pakistan being launched after, Balochistan and its people had chosen to pursue their political ambitions. The Muslim League was the main political association to support the reason for Balochistan as set in Quaid’s Fourteen Points of 1929, in which a request was made for the formation of a different region for Balochistan.

Qazi Isa a youthful Pathan legal counselor of Balochistan, set up the Balochistan Muslim League consolidation with Quaid-e-Azam in 1939. A meeting was, along these lines, assembled by Qazi Isa in Quetta in June, 1939, which acquainted the League with the general population of Balochistan.

The commitment of common Muslims of Balochistan in accomplishing a different country was at the very least the goal. For all intents and purposes, they “spearheaded” the development against the British dominion in India. It is well known how these same grass roots workers led small gatherings that would not only be responsible for getting the League’s message across to the Muslim population but to also imbue in them the political unity that had been missing for centuries. Balochistan in this case provided a glaring contrast to the other regions where the demand for Pakistan was gathering monumental support. Whereas the other provinces relied on the impeccability of their leaders’ aura and political acumen to lead, Balochistan owed much of its support for Pakistan to the grassroots work done by the volunteers. In doing so, it represented the message of Pakistan in its most articulate form, “power to the common man”.

They were the primary factor that led to the creation of Pakistan. Without the collaboration and battle of understudies, females, particularly the informed women of Balochistan amid the most recent years of the Pakistan Movement, low-framework workers, ground level volunteers, the message of Pakistan wouldn’t have been spread in the territory. It was “people’s will” that led the Khans and Mirs of Balochistan who had held dominion to vote in favor of Pakistan from the stage of Shahi Jirga. The central point behind the mass-battle for Pakistan was the desire to have uniformity, reasonableness and arrangement of equity in the general public. They were tired of the unfair demeanor of Hindus and the British Government. They were confident that a different nation with the Muslim government would furnish them with a respectable status in the public arena and particularly the equivalent chances of advance. A significant number of their desires are as yet holding up to wind up reality.
