The seventh death anniversary of legendary nationalist leader Nawab Khair Bakhsh Marri is being observed today in Balochistan.

Mr Marri, who was born on 28th February 1928 in Kohlu, was undisputed tribal leader of Marri tribe and was widely considered the face of Baloch nationalist movement.

Nawab Khair Bakhsh Marri, famously known as ‘Nawab Sahib’ remained among the top leadership of largest nationalist Party of Pakistan NAP (National Awami Party) before it was banned by Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in 1970s.

He is known as the main force behind the insurgency of the 70s, and a ‘motivational, ideological and philosophical leader’ for the nationalistic forces until today.

Several Baloch leaders released statements in media on Nawab Sahib’s anniversary.

Mehran Marri, the youngest son of Nawab Sahib, remembered his father: “Today is the 7th Death Anniversary of my father, Nawab Khair Baksh Marri, aka ‘Baba-e-Balochistan’ who fought and struggled for the end of Pakistan’s occupation of Balochistan.”

“Rich tributes to Nawab Khair Bakhsh Marri on his death anniversary today. He was great leader who educated and led Baloch people in their struggle for a better future throughout his life,”said Nawab Brahumdagh Bugti, the chief of Baloch Republican Party.

Baloch students organisation – Azad, paid tribute to Nawab Khair Baksh Marri, sharing a quote of Nawab Marri and saying; “We tribute him on his 7th Death Anniversary. His contributions for Baloch National Cause will be remembered.”

Baloch National movement, a political party struggling for the independence of Balochistan, paid homage to Nawab Marri in a statement and said: “Nawab Marri’s character was a beacon for the oppressed people of the world. He spent his whole life preaching the Baloch liberation struggle. The spokesman further said Nawab saib, successfully achieved his goal, and today’s struggle for the independence is indebted to him.”

According to the TBP web desk, Baloch social media activists are also running a campaign on social media sites to pay tribute to the late Baloch Leader.
