A number of spirited personalities have come across different fields of life with different aims and ambitions yet a great leader is the one who admires capabilities of people. The one who works for the new generation and conquers all conflicts.

He has always been the nucleus and centerpiece for the people of Balochistan, when health and education related efforts are being carried out. . He has served for the poor of the society than focusing mundane gains for himself.

As for his educational background is concerned he always maintains that “ education is not just about going to school  and  getting  a  degree  it  is  rather  about  acquiring  knowledge  and  engrossing  the  truth  of  life  and exchanging it to the next generation.”  His basic schooling is from Model High School Zhob.

He founded an NGO in BMC and named it Helping Hands.  It is an organization of doctors of 1980s. It was started by some doctors of BMC Quetta with the basic aim of providing Healthcare facilities to the poor at their doorstep. The organization was functional  till  2005  after  which  due  to  the  academic  requirements  of  the  members  the  same  organization couldn’t work further. The day after helping that patient in regard of his basic life utilities, he reestablished the Helping Hands and completed the process of documentation of this organization.
