Pir Pagara is a title given to the leader of Sunni Muslim Sufi order of Hurs in Sindh province of Pakistan. It comes from the Persian word Pir (Chief) and the Sindhi word 'Pagara' meaning:(Chieftain's Turban).

The Last Pir Pagara was Hazrat Pir Syed Mardan Shah II who passed away on 10 Jan 2012. His father Hazrat Pir Syed Sibghatullah Shah II was hanged on 20 March 1943 by the British colonial government during his struggle against British Colonial Rule.
After the defeat of Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah by Ayub Khan in Presidential run, Mohtarma declared the Muslim League as Functional and made Pir Pagaro the head of this Faction of Muslim League. He was the spiritual leader of Hurs and president of political party Muslim League (Functional).
