When he was Waliahad of the state once he saw some young boys misbehaving on the road side he was about to punish them but when told they were students he slightly rebuked them and let them go. In another instance he decided a case in favour of a poor man against an influential person and warned the man never to think of harming the poor man.

It was for these and other more visible of his administrative actions and decisions that Miangul Aurangzeb Waliahad Sahib is known to and admired by the common people.

But it were some less known introductory stories about him that were told in a meeting to us by his eldest son Miangul Adnan Aurangzeb.

 

Adnan Bacha told us Waliahad Sahib  started his education in Wadudia School like a  common citizens of the state with no exclusive privileges and then Bacha Sahib sent him to the Doon School in India. During the independence movement due to uncertain law and order situation he came back to swat. He wanted to make his career in the army and agreed to join in response to an offer made to him by Sir George Cunningham governor of the province during a visit to swat to make him his ADC and for that he was asked to join khyber rifles for training. In 1948 he was selected as cadet to PMA Kakul for training where he went through all the rigorous activities like an ordinary soldier never refusing to fulfill the requisites on the pretence that he was a prince. After two years in 1950 he got entry into Pakistan Army as Second Lieutenant.

It is here that we as common people must realize how much sacrifices some of our sincere MASHARAN make for us. It was not easy to rule in Swat as compared to serve in the army.

He became ADC to the then Commander In Chief Ayub Khan and  afterwards married his daughter. He had bright prospects in the army but obeying the orders of Wali Sahib came back to Swat to assume his duties as Waliahad of the state. He could have at least become Army Chief had he not left for swat.

It is here that we as common people must realize how much sacrifices some of our sincere MASHARAN make for us. It was not easy to rule in Swat as compared to serve in the army.

About his political career after merger of Swat State Adnan Bacha told us many stories and we have observed him for ourselves also as a man of integrity, honesty and dignity. One can never see a single uncultured sentence or act from him even against his political opponents. He has never done or said anything harmful to the reputation of Swat. Indeed he is a role model for the politicians of today.

Keeping in view the  versatility of his  personality one cannot do justice to deal with his life in a single article. Volumes are needed to record the details of his life and contribution to the Swat State and Pakistan.

Therefore this should be considered as an introductory article about him and more details will be brought to our friends slowly and gradually.

Today on the eve of his third TLIN we are praying for him to Allah to grant him Highest place in JANNAT and give us more MASHARAN like him for our salvage.
