Odisha Freedom Fighter Md Bazi No More

Nabarangpur:27/6/19: Noted freedom fighter from Odisha, Mohammed Baji (Md Bazi) passed away at his residence in Sunari Sahi of Nabarangpur district on Thursday. He was 104.

Md Bazi, who was the 20th among 21 children of his parents, joined the freedom struggle after coming in contact with several acclaimed freedom fighters like Radhakrushna Biswasray (better known as Gandhi of Koraput).

It is said that Md Bazi spent his formative years with prominent freedom fighters like Laxmi Chandra Dash, Sadananda Mohanty and Raghunath Choudhury before joining the Indian National Congress in 1930s.

A bachelor in life, Md Bazi had taken part in Mahatma Gandhi’s Satyagraha movement at Sabarmati Ashram in 1940. He was lodged in Nabarangpur jail after he started Satyagraha in the district following his return from Sabarmati.
