Has Pakistan conquered Balochistan?

On 26 August 2015 BBC Urdu broke the news that self-proclaimed Nawab of Bugti tribe and President of Baloch Republican Party Brahumdagh Bugti has announced that he is ready to withdraw the demand of an independent Balochistan. In his latest interview he also emphasised that he always wanted to negotiate with Pakistani establishment but they (establishment) were never serious to talk on Balochistan’s issue. Mr Bugti is the grandson of Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Bugti who was murdered by Pakistan military on 26 August 2006. After Nawab Akbar Bugti’s murder Brahumdagh took refuge in Afghanistan for several years and then moved to Switzerland in 2010 where he applied for political asylum. Brahumdagh Bugti’s approval of Pakistani colonization was welcomed by the Pakistani main stream media and the government also excitedly announced to form a committee to have negotiations with Mr Bugti.
