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.
Nawab Nauroz Khan Zarakzai, commonly known as Babu Nouroz was the chief of
the Zehri tribe of Balochistan. He started an 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

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
