Renowned Brahvi and Urdu language poet and story writer Mir Mohammad Ulfat passed away on Saturday, according to family members.

Mr Ulfat had been ill for some time and was being treated at a hospital in Quetta. His funeral was attended by a large number of mourners, including poets, writers and journalists. He was buried in a local graveyard.

Mr Ulfat started his career as a compere in Radio Pakistan and later joined Pakistan Television’s Quetta centre in October 1974 as a broadcaster.

He was also a story writer and was given a Presidential Award in 2010 for his books on the founder of Pakistan, Quaid-i-Azam Muha­mmad Ali Jinnah, in Brahvi language.

Chief Minister Mir Sarfraz Bugti has expressed grief and sorrow over Mr Ulfat’s death and paid him tribute for his contributions in promoting local languages.

The CM said the late poet’s services to promote Brahvi and other languages will be remembered, and the gulf created by his death will never be filled.
