Anwar Aziz Farooqui

By Kazi Zulkader Siddiqui, 671/Latif

Anwar Aziz Farooqui, kit no. 521/Qasim House joined Cadet College Petaro in 1964 in Ayub House and moved to Qasim House in 1967. He left the college in 1969 after completing his Intermediate.

He was born on 2 February 1951 and got married to Mrs. Talat on 17 November 1978. They have 3 children - Samia, Zeeshan, Sahar.

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.
