Pakistani bloggers played an important role in creating political awareness among ourselves. But they didnâ€™t stopped here, they went on exploring fields of science and technology, telecommunication, medical science, entertainment etc.

I’m a journalist, editor and documentary filmmaker (originally a painter) focusing on issues related to media, gender, human rights and peace. In 1998 I started an informal newsletter on personal and political issues to friends and colleagues, then a yahoogroup (beena-issues) in 2002, and this blog in Feb 2009. The idea was to share articles, reports and comments on current issues, including my own reports, articles and comments (and my monthly column ‘Personal Political’) with my friends and colleagues. Here’s my ‘self-profile‘ for Video Journalists Movement. I was Teabreak.pk’s Featured Blogger, March 2010 (thanks for the ‘break’, guys, it got me taking myself more seriously as a blogger); awarded Best Blog from a Journalist at the Pakistan Blog Awards 2011.
This blog is about the late Karachi-based physician and former student leader Dr M. Sarwar (1929-2009), containing articles and memoranda about him and his life which reflects the struggle for progessive politics in Pakistan. Dr Sarwar formed Pakistan’s first student union, the Democratic Students Federation (DSF). He got his final medical exam results while still in prison in 1954. (After DSF was banned many of its activists later formed the National Students Federation, NSF). He was also the driving force behind the Inter-Collegiate Body (ICB) comprising student unions in different colleges and the All Pakistan Students Organisation (APSO), established in 1953, which became an influential political force until the crackdown on progessive forces. He was also one of the pioneers of the Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) and the Medical Gazette, both of which played a vital role in progressive politics, particularly during the oppressive Zia years.
