Who was Nisar Baloch?

KARACHI: Nisar Baloch was associated with several NGOs as a known social worker, and was a schoolteacher by profession.

He started his social career in 1976 by establishing a street school, “Aap Ka Madressah,” where he provided free education to children and adults of the area.

In 1986, he established the Baloch Promotive Computer and English Language Center in his area (Old Golimar). So far, thousands of residents of the area have received IT degrees from the centre.

Apart from education activities, Baloch played a vital role in serving the old settlers of Karachi. Currently, Nisar Baloch was campaigning against the land mafia for grabbing the Tran-Lyari Park (Gutter Baghicha) land in SITE Town. He had launched several protest campaigns in this regard under the banner of the Gutter Baghicha Bachao Tehreek, Shehri-Citizens for a Better Environment and the Karachi NGOs Alliance.

In his struggle to protect land from encroachers, Baloch had faced jail terms on several occasions; numerous cases were registered against him at various police stations, mainly accusing him of inciting violence and damaging public property.

He was married but had no children. His wife is also a schoolteacher by profession. She works at a school in Gwadar, Balochistan. The couple had adopted a child.

Baloch was a resident of Noor Muhammad Village, Hall Road. His funeral will take place after Zuhr prayers on Sunday (November 18, 2009); his family has planned to bury him at the Mewa Shah graveyard.—WB
