WASHINGTON-DC. Baloch Society of North America (BSO-NA) pay highest tribute to Shaheed-e-Watan Nawab Nauroz Khan and his sons and Nephews on Balochistan's Memorial day for scarifying their lives for motherland Balochistan. Their Sacrifices along with thousands of other Baloch Martyrs will not go in vain. We are resolute to continue their mission until Balochistan is free from all the occupiers and united.
Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those Baloch nationals who have died in the service of our great nation. It is a day of reconciliation of all the Baloch worldwide. It is day about coming together under one flag to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation.
Nawab Nauroz Khan Zarakzai, commonly known as Babu Nouroz was the chief of the Zehri tribe of Balochistan. He started the armed resistance against the occupation of Balochistan by Pakistan. The Pakistani armed forces could not militarily contain the Baloch freedom struggle, and thus they changed tactics and offered amnesty to the Baloch fighters as well as "peaceful" negotiations to resolve the Baloch grievances over the oath of Holy Quran.
As soon as the Baloch freedom fighters ended their struggle to opt for peaceful negotiations, the conniving Pakistani armed forces reneged on their promises and arrested all of them, including Nawab Nauroz, his sons, nephews and followers. On July 15th, 1960, in the Hyderabad and Sukker Jails, the Government of Pakistan executed through hanging the sons, nephews and followers of Nawab Nauroz Khan Zarakzai, and imprisoned him for life where he died on December 25, 1965, in Hyderabad jail.
