From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mir-Hasan Kazim oglu Vazirov, also spelled Vezirov (1889 – September 20, 1918) was an Azerbaijani revolutionary. Son of a teacher, he was born in the city of Shusha (then in Russian Empire, now in Azerbaijan). During the secondary school years, he joined the revolutionary movement and became a member of the Socialist-Revolutionary Party. Since 1917 he worked with the Bolsheviks and he was one of the 26 Baku Commissars of the Soviet Commune that was established in the city of Baku after the October Revolution. He was the People's Commissar of agriculture and, from May 1918, deputy Chairman of the council of peasant deputies of the Baku district. On June 18, 1918, he was the author of a law that confiscated landowners' land and transferred it to the peasants who worked on it. When the Commune was toppled by the Centro Caspian Dictatorship, a British-backed coalition of Dashnaks, SRs and Mensheviks, Vezirov and his comrades were captured by British troops and executed by a firing squad between the stations of Pereval and Akhcha-Kuyma of Transcaucasian Railroad.
