Syed Nasir Ali Shah (Urdu: سید ناصر الی شاہ‎, Hazaragi: سید ناصر الی شاہ) is a Pakistani politician and parliamentarian from the Pakistan Peoples Party who is an elected member of the National Assembly (MNA).[1][2] Shah hails from the city of Quetta in Balochistan and belongs to the Shi'a Hazara community.

On 6 October 2011, he staged a walkout and strike outside the Pakistani parliament in Islamabad while boycotting a session to protest the PPP-led government's apparent inability in curbing continuous sectarian attacks on Hazara people in Balochistan. Later, he was also joined in solidarity by members of the opposition Pakistan Muslim League (N).[3] He held talks with Rehman Malik in which he demanded a solid plan to end sectarian killings in Quetta and also called for a complete dissolution of the Government of Balochistan which, according to him, had completely failed to maintain law and order in the province.[4]

His father Haji Syed Hussain Hazara was also a politician and leader.
