By Kazi Zulkader Siddiqui, 671/Latif

Waqas Ali Khanzada, 2004063/Shahbaz House joined Cadet College Petaro in 2004 and left the college in 2009 after completing his Intermediate.

He was born on 20 August 1990 at Tando Allahyar and died on 21st of November 2011 at the Karachi after a viral attack of Hepatitis.

His elder brother is Salman Ali Khanzada, 2002033/Iqbal House.

Waqas started his early education at Iqra High School, Tando Allahyar and completed his 7th class from there before joining Cadet College Petaro. His father had his own business in the same city.

He was a good student at Petaro and always scored an A1 grade. He was extremely fond of football and cricket and was a member of the Karate club.

He was known to be a very simple person and remembered with fondness by his colleagues and friends. Rarely would he hurt any person's feelings, and if he ever felt he did so, he would be the first one to apologize.

After leaving Petaro, he got admission to Bahria University at Karachi from where he was doing his BBA.

In November 2011, he was infected with an attack of viral hepatitis. This led to paralysis in his body, and it affected some of his organs including his liver. He was admitted to Darus Sehat Hospital in Gulistan-e-Jauhar and placed on a ventilator as he was unable to breathe otherwise. At first it seemed that his condition was improving. However, on 21 November 2011, his condition deteriorated and he expired. He was taken to his ancestral Tando Allahyar the same day where he was buried.

May Allah have mercy on his soul and grant him Jannatul Firdaus.
