Farooqui is my batch mate (1964-1969). He was always
a thorough gentleman even during our Petaro days.
I have never seen him angry even when other boys
would tease him in every way.
After passing out from Petaro, he obtained his
graduation. He then joined Lufthansa Airways in
Karachi and became the key executive for the
airline over his service of nearly two decades.
When Lufthansa pulled out of Pakistan after the
year 1998, Farooqui was given the offer to move to
their branch in the UAE. He declined, wanting to
remain in Pakistan.
Without a job, at first he started a shop to sell
automobile tires in Karachi. Subsequently, he then
built a company to offer non-destructive testing
services, called Global NDE Services (Pvt) Ltd. He
is the CEO of the company.
In Petarian tradition, Farooqui also got his
daughter married to the son of another Petarian,
Capt.(R) Ahmed Zaheer PN, kit no. 483/Liaquat.
It is an honour for
me to be the batch mate of Anwar Aziz Farooquii.
