He was very helpful to all, especially to the voiceless poor masses. He fulfilled his promise to Allah, went back to Him, but his services for humanity are seen in almost every educational institution from bus drivers/conductors/peons/chowkidars to the directors and principals.

NOTE : Some friends are complaining that I forgot or ignored to mention here the name of late Headmaster Syed Atta Muhammad Shah of Nauranga Tehsil and District Mianwali. For their information, I humbly inform them that as to how can I forget the person who is my mentor among thousand others, and who had devoted his whole life to educate poor masses of Mianwali without any discrimination? I have already written separately an article on FB on his services to humanity and brought out a comprehensive book on him thanks to dearest brother Asim Bukhari from Pakki Shah Mardan Tehsil and District Mianwali. Here is the link of my tributes to him.
