[Obituary]Kot Subadar of Kuju, Chitral passed away


By : Shahzada Idrees Hayat

 

Chitral: Haji Subedar Shazda Jan, known as Kot Subadar of Kuju passed away in his native village on 20th Nov 2013. He was one of the few remaining elders who had served in former Chitral State’s Body Guard Force. Subedar was one the most influential men in Chitral during 1949-1954 under Mehtar Saifurehman’s reign who was fostered by his tribe. Because of this relationship Subedar was made ADC (Aide de Camp) of the Mehtar. He was with the Mehtar in Abottabad, Lahore and Peshawar during the times when Mehtar asked by government of Pakistan to live outside Chitral for some people behind activation and success of Chitral United Muslim League (Pakhti Lek as it was called).

Subedar was one of the people who actively suppressed anti monarchy movements in Chitral. He was one of the few advisers who asked Mehtar Saifurehman to transform Chitral from traditional monarchy to constitutional monarchy and give up executive powers. The Mehtar agreed on it and first constitutional order of Chitral was issued in 1953. The most trusted Subedar also participated in different military campaigns. When some relatives of the Mehtar tried to initiate movements aimed at changing Monarch, Subedar was among the people who decided to arrest them without giving any favor. Subedar also managed to calm down the famous Dashman Duhu campaign, and even Molana Noor Shahideen of Muslim league made peace with Mehtar after 1953.

Subedar shifted to Drosh in 1960s and stayed with Shahzada Muhiuddin and had been stay with since then. Last year because of old age and weaknesses he decided to return to his native village and stayed with his family. This morning we heard the sad news that this historical man passed away. His funeral prayers will be held shortly around 2.00 pm in Kuju.

 May the departed Soul rest in Eternal Peace. Ameen
