Shah Gul Aziz, the legendary polo player and social worker from Gojal has passed away on 4th April morning. He was laid to rest in presence of a large number of people in his home town of Gulmit in the upper Hunza district.

Shah Gul Aziz was one of the best polo players from Gilgit-Baltistan who had made numerous appearances majorly for Gilgit Scouts. He also represented Gilgit’s A team at Shandur Polo Festivals.

Shah Gul Aziz was a well respected social worker who has been serving as Aala Lambardar.

Many prominent social and political figures from Hunza and across Gilgit-Baltistan have shared their grief on the death of this legendary polo player who had not only made his name in sports but also served the community for a long period of time after his retirement.

Zulfiqar Essa

“My name is Zulfiqar Essa and I’m from Hyderabad, Hunza. I’m the co-founder of TechScape and previously have been awarded the Global UGRAD scholarship. Currently, I’m working on an idea called “Shirijon” which aims to create over 10,000 jobs in the next decade. I’m collaborating on this idea with my team members from Chitral, Punjab, and Germany.

Recently our idea got selected in the top 35 for HULT Prize 2019 from around two hundred thousand global applications received from across 120 countries. In the next round to be held in Amman, Jordan, we will be competing against young entrepreneurs from Harvard Business School, Cambridge, and other globally known institutions. Our idea is the very first Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral (GBC) to make it to the regional round of HULT Prize.

Team Shirijon from COMSATS Islamabad - Hult Prize 2019

Our team from COMSATS University Islamabad is quite excited to participate in the 10th Annual Hult Prize Regional Summit in an attempt to win a $1 million USD as a seed fund. We think that this idea has the potential to change the economy of not only Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral but entire Pakistan as well.”
