Malik Saad Sports Trust

Dedicated To The Name Of Malik Saad
Formation Of Malik Saad Memorial Sports Trust:

On January 27, 2007 evening Malik Saad laid down his life for the security of the people and integrity of the country. The province was stuck with grief and despair. Perhaps there was not any eye which was not wet. In the memories of martyr funeral ceremonies were held for many days. It was not difficult to guess that Malik Saad was so popular among the people. His love for games was evident from the fact that when commander Khalil ur Rehman was the governor of the province, Malik Saad and myself as a companion to him, proposed to the governor to establish Frontier Sports Trust with Malik Saad as its chairman. He started work on this proposal and even commander Khalil ur Rehman advised to intensify efforts in the formation of the said trust. During that time Malik Saad was martyred. After his sad demise, his friends earnestly desired that his memories should be kept alive in the hearts of the people. For this purpose a decision was taken that the Frontier FATA Sports should be named after Malik Saad so that the mission of Shaheed should be completed. His mission was to take forward the province in the field of games and that the youth should be provided more and more opportunities for such healthy activities so that they do not lag behind. For this purpose a delegation under the leadership of the then commandant Frontier Constabulary, Malik Naveed Khan, who was also the president of Administration Committee of Governor,s Gold Cricket Tournament, met the governor Lieutenant General (R) Ali Muhammad Jan Orakzai. Commander Khalil ur Rehman was appointed advisor to the Prime Minister, and in his place Ali Muhammad Jan Orakzai had been given the new responsibilities of governorship.

When Ali Muhammad Jan Orakzai was given the proposal for the formation of trust in the name of Malik Saad, he instantly approved and consented in the same meeting that the governor ex-office would be the chief patron. Malik Naveed in his own capacity would be the chairman and Amjad Aziz Malik the secretary and that there would be the board of trustees. For this purpose notification was issued by provincial government. Later on secretary administration Colonel (Retired) Ghulam Hussain drafted the trust notification. According to this notification it was proposed.

Governor, Chief Patron, Chief secretary, co-chief partron, Malik Naveed Khan, Chairman Amjad Aziz Malik, and the member of board were secretary, the additional secretary to governor, secretary security FATA, director sports university of Peshawar, Director Sports Khyber Pukhtun Khwa, Director Sports FATA, Dr. Asad Ali Khan, Educationist Malik Tajamul Hayat Khan, from business community Mazhar ul Haq, Zia ul Haq Sarhadi, and from bankers Syed Ali Nawaz Ghalani. So the overall proposed members of the trust were 12.

On June 14, 2008, provincial sports, culture, tourism and youth affairs department issued a proper notification. Soon after the trust notification was issued, Governor Ali Muhammad Jan Orakzai was transferred and Owais Ahmad Ghani took charge as the new governor and for this reason the trust first official meeting held in Governor,s Home by the new governor. After the meeting the trust constitution, rules and regulation were formed and it was decided to get the trust registered and arrange a head office for it. In this meeting several decisions were taken and regular activities were started. The registration of the trust took one year. The trust was however, registered on January 1, 2010. The trust head office was established in the new building of the central police office. Telephone, fax, computer, e-mail, Photostat machine, television and other important requirements were provided. Well known administrator Fida Muhammad Khan was appointed as Admin Officer, popular sports organizer Naseem Javed Mufti was appointed sports officer.

Likewise within two years the trust services were ready for practical work. Constitution for the trust was prepared and accepted. In 2010, under the chairmanship of the governor Owais Ahmad Ghani the second quarter meeting was arranged and many issues were discussed, resolved and the formation of board of directors was altered.
