1st 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.
In the context of these events with far reaching consequences for the Baloch in the coming years, the month of August is one of the important months in the Baloch history.
BHRC (UK) will organise the event in London on 11, August 2013 in University of London Union Building as a remembrance day in which both these events will be analysed by various intellectuals and writers. The final details & exact time of the event will be announced in a later date.
