ISLAMABAD: Baba Haider Zaman, the man behind the Hazara Province Movement, passed away in Islamabad on Wednesday at the age of 82.
Zaman had been admitted to a private hospital for a few days prior to his death.
He was a strong proponent of a separate Hazara province and his movement for a separate province gained momentum after NWFP was renamed Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
He served as a provincial minister, Abbottabad Nazim and district council chairman. He will be laid to rest in Dewal village Abbottabad on Thursday.
