Baluchistan is in conflict with Pakistan Government since 1947. The cause of conflict along with ethnicity includes economic and political exclusion. Baluchistan is the largest province by geographical area in Pakistan, constituting approximately 43 percent of the total area of Pakistan. it is Pakistan's largest province, as well as is poorest and least populated.

The grievances of the masses relating to political, economic, and cultural rights, have given rise to nationalist movements; the absence of problem-resolution mechanisms, even in the democratic setups; continued negligence of the well-being of the masses that has been the hallmark, though out Pakistan since its creation.

Moreover, 70 percent of people in Baluchistan live in poverty. The maternal death rate in Pakistan is 278 per 100,000, whereas in Baluchistan it stands at 785. Natural gas was discovered at Sui in Baluchistan, yet major parts of the province are still deprived of natural gas.

It's important to understand that the violence in Baluchistan is not just because of terrorism. The insurgents are mostly local people longing for their constitutional rights and welfare.

Therefore, most of the insurgent movements in Baluchistan have been linked with deprivation and underdevelopment.
