Misc. Information

I joined Cantt Public School Karachi in class III. I graduated in 1982 from XD. My favorite teachers were Miss Naheed Sultana Akhtar who was my class teacher in VII, Mrs. Shakira Abbasi (late) and Mrs Well.

I have the fondest memories of Cantt Public and the time spent there. The friends I am in touch with are: Mohammad Samie, Misbah Abbasi, Tanvir Rasheed, Waseem Kureshi, Navid Rasheed, Khurram Danyal and Faisal Akhtar. I am very impressed that all of us graduates of Cantt Public are successful in our careers. It says a lot about our alma mater.

I got married in 1993 and have been blessed with three beautiful children.

Dear PAT Supporter

I am writing to express my personal gratitude for your support to The Publican Alumni Trust (PAT) over the years. Your belief in the cause of education has made all the difference in the lives of children from less privileged community who would otherwise may have never seen the inside of a classroom.

I am also very pleased to share that with countless blessings of Allah and your support; the facilities of The Publican School have been upgraded to cater for students from Class 1 to Matriculation.  Besides renovation of the current school building this necessitated construction of an additional floor to accommodate additional classrooms, laboratories and library.  The current student strength stands at over 400 and the student registration is expected to grow in coming years.  Now, more than ever, we need your financial support for the following:


As we approach the month of sharing and generosity, let us renew our promise today … to the children studying in The Publican School … and to the many more who are languishing in failing schools or are left wandering aimlessly on the streets. Let us vow that we will not look away or leave them behind … that we will give them what they need and deserve …. a reason to hope for a better tomorrow. Your Zakat and donations can help them change their lives and give them reason to dream!

Please give your Zakat & Donations generously by making a crossed cheque in favour of “Publican Alumni Trust” and sending it to:
