Mr. Warsi's belongs to a family of Qazis of Jodhpur. His cousins still hold this position in India. As a young boy, he started his primary education in Jodhpur. After the creation of Pakistan, his family moved to Hyderabad, Sindh in 1949 where they settled down. He joined Govt High School Hyderabad from where he completed his Matric in 1955. He then joined Govt. College Hyderabad from where he completed his Intermediate in 1960.

Soon after getting his Intermediate certificate, he got his first employment as a teacher at S.K. Rahim Higher Secondary School and City College from 1960-1967. He taught English, Mathematics, and Science subjects. He then rejoined Govt College Hyderabad as a student and got his B.Sc. degree in 1968.

With his interest in English language, he chose to join Sindh University from where he got his M.A. degree in English in 1970.

Mr. Warsi joined Cadet College Petaro as lecturer in English in 1976. After working there for 2 years, he moved on to Habib Public School Karachi in 1978. However, he returned to Petaro in early 1982. During his Petaro years, he was given charge for examinations, new entry tests, and was also a member of the purchasing committee.

This was the time when the Pakistan Steel Cadet College was established. He decided to make the move and joined PSCC along with a few other Petaro teachers at the end of 1982.

Being one of the pioneer teachers at Pakistan Steel Cadet College, he held several key positions. He was initially appointed as Professor of English language. However, since the number of staff members was small, he was involved in innumerable areas to build and establish the college. He also held the position of House Commandant and Head of Department of English. In the late 1980s, he became the Vice Principal of the college. From 1994-1996, he was transferred to Shah Abdul Latif College (which is a part of the Pakistan Steel group of educational institutions) as its Principal. Returning to Pakistan Steel Cadet College that year, he held the position of Principal of that college during 1996-1997 when he retired from service.

Since his retirement, he has been employed as professor of English as Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi.
