The fighting which erupted earlier this year in Pakistan's biggest and poorest would probably be of little in- terest to the outside world were it not for the fact that Baluchistan borders on and the Arabian Sea. The Shah of who has a Baluch problem of his has said that he will not stand aside if Pakistan begins to lose its grip on Baluchistan. Areas populated by Baluchis extend as far as 200 miles into eastern Iran. WATCHING The Soviet the United and India are all in the watching to see how Pakistan copes with this problem area. But despite occasional allegations of foreign big power involvement in the best in- dications for the moment are that these I powers share a common desire not to see chaos in with all its unpredictable conse- quences. The province of with a population of some 2.5 million covers nearly half of Pakistan. But owing to its lack of its mountainous and poor less than 2 per cent of this vast area has been brought under cultivation. The Baluch tribesmen are largely sheep and goat herding nomads. Baluchistan has a history of and a serious uprising erupted against the government of Gen. Ayub Khan just 10 years ago. What is happening now has a familiar look to it. Outsiders all the way from Alexander the Great down to the British and the present- day Punjabi and Pathan soldiers of the Pakistani Army have found Baluchistan's arid landscape less than hospitable. ARRESTS Baluchistan's latest troubles started early this year when Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto ousted the elected provincial government. Mr. Bhutto sent regular army troops into the area and in he arrested three powerful Baluch political leaders. The worst clashes erupted in July and August. The tribesmen showed what they could do when roused. They killed eight Pakistani soldiers in a single ambush. They overran a 19-man Pakistani position which was heavily defended by bunkers and machine guns. In Baluch snipers were reported to be killing four of five Pakistani soldiers every day. The Army has sent in more reinforcements and pushed deeper into the Marri which is where tribal resistance has been best organized. Some including .op- ponents of the estimate that the Pakistani Army may have more than men from various regular and irregular units stationed in Baluchistan. Prime Minister Bhutto denies that there is anything like that number. Cin the oiiorrilla no one seems to know with any preci- sion what the capabilities are. Estimates range as high as '000 full-time and fully armed with many more part-time guerrillas and sym- pathizers backing them up. In recent the fighting has dropped off. PEAKED Some observers think that the fighting in Baluchistan has peaked. But others think that far from being it has the potential for burgeoning from the Hood into a full-scale insurgency par- ticularly if Prime Minister Bhutto fails to negotiate a political settlement with the opposition National Awami Party and the tribal chiefs who support it. there are in- dications that some of the better-educated men in the guerrilla ranks may be turning away from the conser- vatism of tribal society and adopting a Marxist-Leninist line. believe that the only way to establish a socialist society is through armed said one young man who claimed to have friends in a guerrilla band. will start with a socialistic Baluchistan and use it as a base to convert the rest of the These are ambitious words. There are not believed to be many such literate and leftist guerrillas around. Most Baluchis are illiterate. But the tribal or sir- have been warning Prime Minister Bhutto that if he doesn't deal with the sir- he may end up having to deal with more extremist elements. Mr. Bhutto's tactic has been to divide and rule to play one tribe off against another just as the British did when they tried to keep this area un- der their control. But the sirdars are saying that this will no longer work and that the longer the army stays in the more the tribes will tend to unite rather than fight among themselves. the army has apparently been instructed to try to avoid the brutality which characterized its operations in East Pakistan in 1971. the army has done some well digging and handed out some blankets and transistor radios here in an ef- fort to win the people's sup port.
