When the prime minister of Pakistan Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto feared that the first elected government of Balochistan is educating the Baluch masses about the rights and how they had intentionally been kept backward by Pakistani imperialists then the so called first elected democratic Prime minister of Pakistan illegally dismissed the government of Baluchistan on 13 February 1973. Baluch Nation’s anger flared up into an armed revolt for the Independence of Baluchistan.
Gunship helicopters provided by the Shah of Iran [Reza Shah Pahlavi] and the might of Pakistan Air Force were use for indiscriminate aerial bombardment on unarmed civilian population to make the Baluch rebels surrender, thus thousands of Baluch perished including men, women and children [mostly aged men, women and children], hundreds of thousands have been arrested and several thousand were made homeless. Standing crops were set on fire, live stock destroyed and villages levelled to ground due to indiscriminate bombardment of Pakistan army.
