ZHOB: “Abdul Khaliq Bashardost was a great sympathizer, who
devoted his entire life for the sake of Islam and poor people of his
constituency”, said Habibullah Mandokhail (Bhutto Afghan), a close
companion of Bashardost during a condolence reference in the
memory and 8th death anniversary of ex-minister and founder of
Jamiat Tulaba Islam Abdul Khaliq Bashardost here at religious
seminary ‘Madrasa Dar-ul-Huda’ Nasarabad.
Close companions of Bashardost and people from different walks of

eulogized the political and social services of Bashardost and termed
his death an irreparable loss for the entire province particularly for the
religious parties.
Recalling his services they said that Bashardost fought so bravely
and his efforts will be remembered in golden words for a long time, as
he raised voice for the neglected and oppressed segments of the
“Bashardost’s life is a role-model for us. Although he was a great
leader yet he was equally humble and compassionate to people,”
