Balochistan, the largest province of Pakistan with rich mineral resources has gained the world attention because of the conflict and insurgencies going on there since long. In this seminar, the conflict in Eastern Balochistan will be described and discussed.

Balochistan, the largest province of Pakistan with rich mineral resources has gained the world attention because of the conflict and insurgencies going on there since long. The province remains an underdeveloped yet being strategically the most important region of Pakistan, owing to its geographical location, Balochistan has become in the limelight globally that today it is being discussed in American Congress as well. The peace in Balochistan has become the priority because it has a large and direct impact on Pakistan both politically and economically. Therefore, it is important to see that who stands responsible for this social plight of mineral rich region? Is this crisis created merely by Sardars? Is now the Middle Class being involved in the current rebellion? And are the supporters of separatism getting aid from the outside forces. Therefore, it is very pertinent to understand, what is the nature of challenge itself and how does it relate to the International, Global and Regional scenario (Pull & Push Factors), if the peace in Balochistan has to be achieved in its true letter and spirit. Last but not least, who has the solution of this crisis?
