Balochistan: Once known for his soulful voice, famous Lok singer, Muhammad Bashir Baloch is now seen begging people to help him meet the most basic of his needs. 

Speaking to ARY News, he asked why do people neglect artists like this, “The ones praising this land, mountains, its waterfalls, rivers why do you let them die out of hunger? Please listen to my appeal.”

Baloch has spent the last 40 years of his life serving the country through his music on a provincial and national level. He has won a total of 133 awards, including a Government award. But owing to desperate situations, he is ready to sell his awards for a little bit of money saying that there is nothing else he can do to support himself and his family, “Can I do anything? I cannot even beg on the streets.”

Muhammad Bashir Baloch has been among the very few singers bringing a good name to the province. He can sing in more than eight languages besides Brahvi, Balochi, Pashto and Urdu
