Anwaar Ul Haq Kakar
Mr. Anwaar ul Haq Kakar is currently serving as Advisor to the Chief Minister for the Information Department, Government of Balochistan. Previously, he served as Spokesperson for the Government of Balochistan, from December 2015 to January 2018. Mr. Kakar’s diplomatic efforts on behalf of the Baloch government in the international arena as well, on such prestigious platforms as Harvard and the seat of the European Parliament in Brussels, have yielded great fruit, helping create strong impetus to project a positive and supportive view of the Pakistani state. His skilful addressing of the negative and false propaganda being pushed by anti-state elements abroad, has resulted in several positive policy changes towards these actors on part of the international community and in favour of the Baloch Government. As Patron in Chief of the Voice of Balochistan, an independent perception building initiative he masterminded, he is directly credited with ameliorating the often uncertain status of relations between the Baloch and non-Baloch youth, and in eliminating misperceptions that stood as obstacles to the cause of inter provincial social integration. Mr. Kakar holds a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Sociology from the University of Balochistan, and is an alumnus of the prestigious National Security Workshop from the National Defence University, Islamabad. He is fluent in English, Urdu, Persian, Pushto, Balochi, and Brahvi.
