Mir Hasil Khan Bizenjo has left a very distinct imprint on politics in Pakistan. He has left behind a rich legacy of struggle for peace, federal democracy, secularism and social justice. He was always admired for his steadfast approach and leadership on the shape and form of democracy and federalism Pakistan needs and the path we must carve to achieve constitutional demarcation of inter-institutional relations in Pakistan. He is deeply admired for his clarity of conviction, his courage and his humility. Pakistan is left poorer without him. He and his party courageously adopted the constitutional and electoral course for struggle at a time when there was tremendous pressure to opt for radical solutions.

We at PILDAT have the honour and privilege of working with Mir Hasil Khan Bizenjo for many years. He was an esteemed member of many of PILDAT groups including Democracy and Civil-Military Relations Groups. He was an adviser to PILDAT and a very dear friend. He will be dearly missed.

May Almighty Allah bless him in afterlife and give his family fortitude to bear with this irreparable loss.
