British Balochistan: A Study of the Role and Impact of Judicial Commissioners under Colonial Rule
This paper presents a historical analysis of the judicial mechanism in British Balochistan, with a specific focus on the role of judicial commissioners. The paper argues that the role of judicial commissioners in Balochistan was central to the functioning of the judicial system and that their decisions had a significant impact on the lives of the local population. The paper also highlights some of the key challenges that the judicial system faced, such as linguistic and cultural barriers, and the tension between customary and colonial law. The Khanate of Kalat had a wide range of conflict resolution procedures, which reflected the region's complex legal and cultural environment. These systems, which were created to guarantee that disputes were settled fairly and justly, were frequently adapted to certain types of disputes. Overall, the paper contributes to our understanding of the history of Balochistan and the role of the British colonial authorities in shaping its legal system.
