Maj.(R) M. Zulfiqar Kayani

By Kazi Zulkader Siddiqui, 671/Latif

Muhammad Zulfiqar Kayani, kit no. 604/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 11 November 1951 and got married to Mrs. Farzana on 21 January 1983. They have 4 children.

Zulfi is my batch mate (1964-1969). He was always considered to be one of the naughty boys during our Petaro days. However, with age, the naughtiness is all gone, and he has emerged as a very stable and serious person in life after having weathered the army days.

After passing out from Petaro, he joined Pakistan Army in the Punjab Regiment after qualifying in the 45th Long Course. When he was a Major in the army, he opted for voluntary retirement to seek greener pastures.

During the early 1990s, Zulfi got a job with the Intelligence Bureau as the Director Administration. With the change in government, his contract was over, and he moved on to become the Regional Manager in the north for Wackenhut Security Services (Pvt) Ltd. He was instrumental in building their business in the north. Around the year 1998, he moved on to join another security services company, which did not work out. Thus, he opted to start his own company, Premier Security Services (Pvt) Ltd. in partnership. The company was founded in 1995, but he became a shareholder in the year 2000.  Since then, he has been the Chief Operating Officer of the company and has built it into one of the largest security services companies in Pakistan.

It is an honour for me to be the batch mate of Muhammad Zulfiqar Kayani.
