Shaheed Abdullah Murad Baloch was born as the first son of Haji Murad Ali in 1959 of a highly respected Baloch family whose ancestors settled Siddique Village in Malir in the 19th Century; his family recall how their elders joined others to welcome the influx of migrants when Pakistan was created in 1947. Rapidly their tranquil village on the remote out skirts of Karachi was engulfed by new housing societies. Evacue property claims reduced their farmland to a few acres on which his father grew vegetables and fruits to provide for his family’s needs.
He grew up in the locality of his birth (now Al-Falah Society) and graduated from Jamia Millia College in 1979. He served at a local branch for some time before taking the risk of resigning from his job to sell-off some of his family land and start a construction firm (Now SALMAN GROUP). He quickly showed a flair for business and shared his success generously with his family and with the needy.
He was exactly the kind of individual direly needed in our business, social & political process. As an educated, self-made entrepreneur he was willing to risk the comforts gained through sheer hard work for the toughest form of public service, which is politics. His family, his friends, his constituency and his party have lost a fine human being. The country has lost a political leader who had the potential to make an even more valuable contribution to our future that what he had already made.
After march 06, 2004, his son Kamran Abdullah Murad founded the organization namely “ Shaheed Abdullah Murad Foundation” to serve the less-privileged citizens of Pakistan through education centres, medical services, Zakat & Aid , Clothing and Food , Sports Programs, Youth and Student Development Programs , Women Empowerment and team building programs. His vision is to promote love, peace, harmony, brotherhood and intra-engagements through community development programs.
