SHAHEED Moula Baksh Dashti, an eminent personality belonging to the National Party, was assassinated on July 11, 2010.
No one can deny Shaheed Moula Baksh's significant contribution to the Baloch nation. A thorough Baloch nationalist, he was an eccentric character. His sincere deeds made him the district nazim. He worked diligently in this capacity to strengthen the educational sector.
Moula realised that education is the only way to bring awareness among the Baloch youth. He believed that through education Balochistan can realise the dream of sustainable socio-economic development while it can also enhance political awareness in the province.
Furthermore, he worked for the health sector as well, along with developing infrastructure. His services as an effective nazim were recognised by several NGOs.
I can never forget his lecture on nationalism and democracy, which was very motivating for Baloch youth.I have personally never seen such an eminent personality in Kech, who laid down his life for the Baloch nation. Such personalities will always be remembered in the pages of history. (DODA RASHEED AHMED BALOCH Turbat)
