It is said that the uncle of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, Hazrat Ameer Hamza was the ancestor of The Bugti's. Bugti's are of (
Arab) origin, who are settled in hills to the east of the Sindh- Pishin railway, between Jacobabadand Sibi, with the Marris (a cognate tribe) to the north of them - in 1901 they numbered 15,500] .
An expedition against them was organized by Sir
Charles James Napierin 1845, but they were never brought under control till Sir Robert Sandemanruled Balochistan. Since the construction of the railway made possible after a thorough negotiation, conditions have been peaceful.
The region was largely under
Iranian Royalty control and the autonomous principality of Kalat. The British wrested control away from the Khan of Kalatin the early 1840s and it became the staging ground for the various Afghan-British wars (the Great Game) in the later half of 19th century. The 1876 treaty between the Khan of Kalatand Robert Sandemanaccepted the independence of the Kalat as an allied state with British military outposts in the region. After the 1878 Afghan War, the British established Baluchistan as a provincial entity centered around the municipality of Quetta- Kalat, Makran, and Lasbelacontinuing to exist as princely realms. The British interest in the region was largely to use it as a land-mass bulwark against Central Asian encroachments. Besides a train track, the development and settlement of British holdings excluded most of the tribal population. The administrative and legislative reforms of late 19th and early 20th century India overlooked Balochistan.
Around the 1930s, Balochi nationalist parties emerged to contest for freedom from British rule. They took the princely
State of Kalatas the focal point of a free and united Balochistan. Allama Mohammad Iqbal's vision of autonomous federation of Muslim state included Balochistan but the Khan of Kalatnever bought into the nationalist paradigm, arguing that the Kalat had special treaty powers. Baglar Begi Khandeclared the independence of Kalat on August 15, 1947. He assured Pakistan that Kalat will participate in the defense and infrastructure but will be autonomous. That didn't go over well at all and the Pakistani army entered the region to occupy the area immediately.
March 27, 1948, the Khan of Kalatgave in to the State of Pakistanand his old attorney Mohammad Ali Jinnah. His brother Prince Abdul Karim Khanrefused to surrender and revolted until his arrest in 1950. Balochistan was put under Governor General control and no elective body formed in Balochistan 1973.
