This is Ikram ul Haq. He stands on the liberty, round about once or twice every week with this banner ‘We Want Jinnah’s Pakistan’. He joined the Pakistan Movement in 1944. ‘1947 main phir hamain Pakistan mil gaya’, he said. Seventy years after the independence, Ikram ul Haq is still standing strong fighting for what he believes in.
Speaking to him was a delight. He was protesting in such heat and remained patient and steadfast. This man has achieved in one lifetime what most of us cannot even think of achieving. His hard work and determination shows in his story. He started off his career in 1952 as a junior clerk and retired in 1988 as the Managing Director of Pakistan State Oil.
When I spoke to him, he told me he treats every girl like his own daughter because he wishes he had one of his own. I wish he reads this and knows that he is an inspiration to all the youth including the daughters of the country. We are truly grateful for what you have done for us, Sir.
