The Great Pakistanis !

The Great Pakistanis.

So here I go, out of patriotism :), I have decided to write names of great Pakistanis(of all fields, that I know) and their achievements/life history. Despite of many millions of problems Pakistan is an extra-ordinary place. From Sky high mountains to deep down Oceans, from -50 C degree to +50 C Degrees, from illiteracy to Nobel prize and from nowhere to going Nuclear, it all sounds amazing…

The main reason of doing so is to commemorate them and also many people of Pakistan don’t even know names of many of great people from Pakistan, especially scientists and writers, so I want all to know about them also. This list will continue growing over time.

So to start from, here is the initial list,

1. The Quaid-e-Azam, Muhammad Ali Jinnah – Politics, Law, Statesman ship, Father of Nation

2. Allama Muhammad Iqbal – Poet, Thinker [Tough he died before Pakistan]

3. Liaqat Ali Khan – Politics, Movement of Pakistan

6. Prof. Dr. Rafi Muhammad Chaudhry – Physics

7. Allama Mashriqi (Inayatullah Khan) – Mathematics, Movement of Pakistan, Khaksar Tehreek

8. Abdul Sattar Edhi – Social Welfare

9. Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Poetry, writing, philosophy

10. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto – Poltics, Former Prime Minister and President of Pakistan

11. Ahmed Shah Pitras Bokhari – Humorous Writing, Literature

12. Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan – Metallurgist, Father of Nuclear Program for Pakistan

13. Sir. Zafar Ullah Khan – Law, International Relations etc..

14. Shoaib Mansoor – Television Programming/Filming

15. Sadquain – Art, Calligraphy, Painting

16. Imran Khan – Cricket, Social Work

17. Jehangir khan – Squash

18. Jan Sher Khan – Squash

19. Noor Jahan – Singing

20. Mumtaz Mufti – Literature, Fiction, Sufism

21. Bano Qudsia – Literature, Fiction, Sufism

22. Prof. Dr. Atta Ur Rehman – Chemistry, Higher Education

23. Wasim Akram – Cricket

24. Ibn-e-Insha – Urdu Literature

25. Javed Miandad – Cricket

26. Ashfaq Ahmed – Literature

27. Shaqiue-Ur-Rehman – Humorous Ficiton

28. Gul Jee – Painter

29. Obaidullah Baid – Scholar, Novelist

30. Jameeluddin Aali – Scholar, Poet, Writer

    You mentioned Bano Qudsia but you didnt mention Ashfaq Ahmed !!! now thats a blunder 😛

    Also I think Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan should also be in the list.

    And if we look on the religious side we have many saints as reformer of the Pakistanis on religious side

    Assalam-o-Alaikum,
    Dear Brothe, You have place Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan at number 12, which is quiet unjust and unfair. I think he should be placed at number. Because no nation can survive with defence and this is because of him that Muslim Umma’ respects us as first Islamic Nuclear Power. Check it please and give him his right place because the nations who dont regard their hero’s can’t survive for long.
    Thanks & Regards

    Nice idea, Atleast this’ll help us to think something positive within us, because as a nation we always discuss negative things about ourselves.

    wonderful effort my friend.

    Please do two things:
    a) Mention the names subject/field wise like politics, sports, medicine, etc.
    b) Remove rankings to avoid subjectivities.

    I think other friends have suggested good names and we can include that too

    Good Luck:-)
