Baloch Human Rights Council (UK) is holding Independent Day of Balochistan in London

Balochistan Map1st August, 1928 is the day when Persian forces began their assault on Western Balochistan which culminated in the occupation of Western Balochistan and the surrender of Mir Dost Mohammad Khan Barakzai on 21st January, 1929.

11 August, 1947 is the day when Balochistan declared its independence in the wake of British withdrawal from India. Balochistan remained an independent country until it was finally occupied by Pakistan in April 1948.
