The Baloch people are considered as one of Iran's most important minorities and ethnicities, and while they take advantage of a high solidarity, they can sometimes bring challenges for the central government and create a context of independence and separatism in that country. Considering the importance of the Baloch national solidarity with the central government, the main goal of the present research is to investigate the role of the Baloch people in Iranian national identity and solidarity, especially after the victory of the Islamic Revolution. The present study’s research method is library research and descriptive research. The findings indicate that in the Sistan and Baluchistan region, there have never been ethno-movements occurring, in its usual sense. On the other hand, national solidarity is created when a person in a society like Iran does not feel like being the other, while the people of Sistan and Baluchestan are very familiar with this feeling because of their many deprivations. Therefore, in order to strengthen national identity and solidarity, the government should be concerned with the expansion of appropriate privileges, facilities and funds to all parts of the country, including Sistan and Baluchistan, otherwise national solidarity will be replaced with dissociation and division.
