One policy that all empires employ to prolong their colonial rules is the policy of ‘divide and rule.’ British Imperial rulers applied this policy most effectively in India. British colonial conquest of India has been far-reaching. It has also spread outside Indian borders. British invaded Balochistan in 1839 to shield India from outsiders.  After the occupation of Balochistan, British divided Balochistan into three parts to weaken Baloch struggle for independence.

Iran is one of the weakest countries in the Middle East, given its divergent centrifugal ethnic composition if exploited.  However, thanks to Saudi Arabia, the leader of Arab nations, despite having the necessary leverages of inflicting a heavy cost on Iran it has never sought to destabilize it in order to avenge its naked enmity towards Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Palestine and Egypt.

Given the precarious security turmoil in the geopolitics of Middle East, unprecedented voices are heard in favour of an independent Balochistan from …

On policy matters it would be fatally harmful to genuine Baloch national cause for freedom if India fails to adopt a state policy in the immediate future about the ideology of Balochistan independence; because the Indian reluctance to seriously support Baluchistan freedom movement would justify Pakistan’s claims that the insurgency in Balochistan is a proxy war of India against Pakistan.

One cannot dismiss the Chinese nation’s great contribution to human civilization. At one time China was the centre of the world’s economy. However, all this vanished during course of the early nineteenth and twentieth centuries (1840-1940) when Western empires occupied China in the name of trade and civilization. As for trade, they were gifted with opium and in place of economic development they had to endure an ongoing cycle of mass starvation, disease, bloodshed and subjugation.
