After having completed a number of health and education projects with an investment of billions of rupees, the Al Mustafa Welfare Society, has started spadework on yet another grand project of establishing a university in Karachi.

This was disclosed by Chairman of the society, Haji Mohammed Hanif Tayyab, a former Federal Minister and President of Nizam-e-Mustafa party during a chat at the venue of a free medical camp in Gulshan-e-Iqbal, organized by Al-Mustafa Welfare Society as part of its ongoing humanitarian activities in the fields of health and education. 

Haji Hanif Tayyab, the soul behind various multi-billion health and education projects being run under Al Mustafa Welfare Society, was highly appreciative of Jumbo Karachi Guide when presented to him during the medical camp at the Pakistan Society for Scientists and Scientific Professions.

The Al Mustafa Welfare Society is registered as a non-governmental organization and is being run by a team of highly motivated intellectuals, social workers comprising of doctors, engineers, lawyers, business executives and representatives of various fields of life.

Haji Hanif Tayyab pointed out that the society has been serving thousands of poor and needy persons daily without discrimination of cast, creed and religion through its medical centers, clinics, schools, mosques Islamic centres, vocational training and skill development centers.

Sarfaraz Ahmed receives Jumbo Karachi Guide in Adelaide

Pakistan News & Features Services

Wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed, who was one of the top performers during Pakistan’s campaign in the recently concluded ICC World Cup Cricket Tournament 2015, hosted jointly by Australia and New Zealand, was pleasantly surprised when presented a copy of Jumbo Karachi Guide by its Chief Editor, Abdul Qadir Qureshi, in Adelaide.

This presentation of Jumbo Karachi Guide in Adelaide indeed looked quite incredible because both Sarfaraz Ahmed as well as Abdul Qadir Qureshi belonged to Karachi and they had gone to Australia in connection with the World Cup. 

Abdul Qadir Qureshi, who had flown to Australia for the World Cup coverage, later revealed that the presentation of Jumbo Karachi Guide wasn’t a planned event and it just took place by chance. 

“Actually I was staying at my daughter’s place in Adelaide. Sarfaraz, who was in brilliant form throughout the tournament, was missing the cup of tea he was used to having in Karachi. So I invited him to come over for that elusive tea of Karachi flavour in Adelaide at the residence of my daughter,” Qadir Qureshi disclosed. 

“Sarfaraz accepted my invitation right away and dropped in the same evening to have a cup of tea with our family. He heaved a few sighs of relief at sipping the kind of tea he was unable to get after having left the shores of Karachi quite a few weeks ago. The enterprising cricketer didn’t conceal his delight at getting it finally thousand of miles away from our home city,” he added. 

“Just as the extended tea was coming to a close I availed the opportunity by presenting Sarfaraz a copy of Jumbo Karachi Guide which he was very glad to receive. He just went through its pages quickly and complimented us for the good work. He promised to read the contents of the guidebook in detail at a later stage,” Qadir Qureshi concluded.

Vaneeza Ahmad on Jumbo Karachi Guide

"I am thrilled that Karachi will now also be having a guidebook of its own, showcasing the premier events like the much talked about Karachi Fashion Week, besides putting together wealth of information of general interest.”

“Jumbo Karachi Guide will surely be helpful in facilitating the entrepreneurs in particular but it indeed has utility for everyone on the move. Having so much information at our fingertips certainly puts us at an advantage.”

“We may be in a nascent stage in many fields but thankfully we have the right ingredients to get there. As a nation we need to be more open and practical. We are blessed with immense talent and it’s just a matter of time to get things in order to lead the turnaround. Good luck Jumbo!"
