Ahmed is a thorough gentleman. It is hard to find
another person like him who is so humble and soft-spoken. At
the same time, he is highly cultured and a
pleasure to be with always. He has been like a
brother to me and a very caring person.
Ahmed joined Pakistan Navy after leaving Petaro.
After a full career, he retired as a Captain in
the Navy. He sailed and commanded many ships.
During the late 1990s, he was posted as the Chief
of Protocol of Pakistan Navy in Islamabad.
After his retirement, Ahmed chose to pursue the
field of education. At first, he was appointed the
first ever Director of the Bahria Insitite of
Management and Computer Sciences at Karachi. It is
to Ahmed's credit that this institute was built
and established on sound footings. It is now a
college sought after by many students.
He then moved on to become the Principal of the
DHA Degree College. This was another pioneering
effort for him. The college was in its nascent
stages and Ahmed played a major role in bringing
it to a position of stature.
Due to his hard and sound work, he was chosen as
the Registrar of Institute of Business
Administration (IBA), Karachi in 2009. This is
truly a feather in his cap.
Ahmed is the elder brother of the late
kit no. 544/Liaquat who expired along with his family
in the Gulf Air crash near Abu Dhabi in 1983.
Ahmed and Ahsan's family and my family go back
generations together. It is an honour
for me to have known Ahmed so closely over these years.
