Pakistani Annexation of Kalat 1947-1948

[ 1947 - 1948 ]

The India Independence Act left the princes theoretically free to accede to either dominion. ... The khan of Kalat in Balochistan declared independence on August 15, 1947, but offered to negotiate a special relationship with Pakistan. Other Baloch sardar (tribal chiefs) also expressed their preference for a separate identity. Pakistan took military action against them and the khan and brought about their accession in 1948.
