MB Larik always motivated young people to achieve their dreams of bright future and set various examples of social service, particularly in the field of education
By Muhammad Abbas Baloch
It’s very sad to know that Mr. Moulla Bux Larik has left this immortal world.
Larik Sahib, as he was known and called by the people of Khairpur by and large, was fatherly figure for me and others of my age group and youngsters belonging to Khairpur.
He was pioneering force in education sector of Khairpur since last over fifty years. The people of Khairpur in general and civil society in particular were lucky enough that they had persons like Larik Sahib, who spent all his life for social service and wellbeing of common people.
He always motivated young people to achieve their dreams of their bright future and he himself set various examples of social service, particularly in the field of education.
He was role model civil servant, educationist, social worker and important member of civil society. He, under the umbrella of Naz Old Boys’ Welfare Association (NOWA) discharged the duties with sincerity and utter commitment. He got his early education from his native village called Ubri – a small town of then princely state of Khairpur State, where he was enrolled in primary school in 1937 and later enrolled in Naz High School in 1943. After completion of education he joined as School Teacher at Shikarpur in 1960, and since then he remained in the same field of education and retired as District Education Officer Khairpur.
I was posted as Assistant Commissioner Thari Mirwah in 1994 and at that time we had formally coordination for organizing cultural and educational activities. I was personally impressed by his personality and the way he thought and worked smoothly. He actively participated in socio-cultural and educational activities throughout his life. He was one of the office bearers of Sachal Yadgaar Committee and member of various Civil Society Forums. He promoted the girls’ education in Khairpur District and remained staunch advocate of women Empowerment and Entrepreneurship.
I offered a Ottaq (a place for socialization) of my grandfather and he converted it into free school for poor girls students.
Moulla Bux Larik Sahib – a model civil servant, true patriot, active citizen will be remembered for centuries. After his retirement from the government service, he continued his social services for the betterment of education, art and culture in District Khairpur. May Allah rest the departed soul in eternal peace.
