BiographyAnwar Kamal Khan Marwat, a practising lawyer, was born in Bannu city of Pakistan.Anwar Kamal was son of Justice (retd) Habibullah Khan, the first chairman of the Senate of Pakistan and elder brother of a senior Pakistani Civil Servant Akhtar Munir Khan Marwat.
Member of SenateHe was elected member of the Senate in March 1997 for a period of six years. He was also a member of Senate standing committees on water and power, planning and development and local government and rural development.

As ChairmanMr Kamal Marwat was also elected unopposed as chairman town/municipal committees Lakki Marwat during 1982-1987 and 83-85 APP.
Tribal ArmyHe led his first lashkar, or tribal army, in 1973, shortly after leaving high school with his eye on the civil service. This was more fun. In 2007 came a glorious foray to sack a police station on the Punjabi border and steal its guns. In 2004, most famously, he took 3,000-4,000 heavily armed and bearded men up into the hills to avenge the abduction of two Marwat women by the next-door Bhittani tribe. Around 70 or 80 people were killed, and a village flattened. The $260,000 in compensation his tribe had to pay the Bhittanis was not too bad, he thought, to restore Marwat honour.
