Undeniably, Balochistan has never been fortunate throughout ages; the rampant poverty and causes of illiteracy never bounced away from the people dwelling in the said province. Educational institutes in rural areas have been providing the least quality of education due to many reasons. In fact, Balochistan has never stepped to achieve its fundamental priorities.
Nevertheless, during the tough times, the students of Balochistan have struggled to achieve their goals on every platform. Arguably, Balochistan is considered as one of the least educated and developed provinces. It has always been pointed out that the people living there are not interested in getting an education and withhold themselves to get higher studies, however, it is only the one side of the story.
Muzaffar Azam Baloch belongs to a very backward district Kalat, who is a proud Baloch and bright future of Balochistan. Leaving behind his family and friends he traveled to the United Kingdom at the age of 17 for studies. He successfully completed his LL.B Hons from University of Hertfordshire, UK and Bar at Law from The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn, UK and was called to the Bar of England and Wales (published as a Barrister) in March 2018 and became one of the youngest barristers of Balochistan in the age of 24. Earlier, Ahmed Jamal became a Barrister at the age of 24.
During his stay in UK, he also practiced with “1 Grays Inn Square Chamber” and also marshalled the Judge His Honour Andrew Bright at Crown Court, St. Albans.
He has now returned with the ambition to serve the backward Province and its people. He is currently practicing as an Advocate in High Court, Balochistan and also delivering his expertise as a Visiting Lecturer in City Law College, Quetta.
