Bashir Ahmad Bilour (Pashto: بشیر احمد بلور; 1 August 1943 - 22 December 2012) was a member of the provincial assembly of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Senior Minister for Local Government and Rural Development of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
In the 2008 elections, Bashir Bilour was elected as a member of the provincial assembly of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa with majority of the votes, (over 4000) from PF-3, a constituency of Peshawar City. He remained MPA for 5 consecutive times. He was the parliamentary leader and was the only MPA of ANP even after the MMA wave when Ghulam Ahmad Bilour and many others lost.
On 22 December 2012, Bilour was leaving after attending a meeting of ANP workers at a private residence in Peshawar, when he was attacked and critically injured by a suicide bomber at 6:15 PM. He was rushed to Lady Reading Hospital where he died at 7:40 PM. His secretary, Noor Muhammad, was also killed in the blast. This was the 5th attack on him and, as was usual for Bilour, he had no guards with him. The funeral prayer for him was held at Colonel Sher Khan Army Stadium on 23 December 2012 with at least 20,000 people despite threats. The city was closed, as the father of Peshawar and face of KP assembly, was buried at Syed Hasan Pir graveyard in Peshawar.
