I normally put the phone away at night before starting my daily movie show.
My phone was vibrating constantly, I ignored but phone kept calling again & again. Finally I checked it and found repeated missed calls from a very dear friend.
I called back and he told me the good news about him in the same composed & calm tone which I’m used to in last many years. Tomorrow he is taking oath as Minister. It was an emotional call and we started recollecting last 5 years which was a story of patience, sacrifice, prudence & composure by one man. I learnt a lot from a man who stood his grounds with patience & sanity when many tried to shut his career down. They might have succeeded in short terms but Allah is watching our intentions & our sincerity and always rewards us, we just need to have faith & keep going.
I would like everybody in politics to learn from him. He belongs to Shangla and come from a very humble family. He started his career as a reporter, journalist, Anchor, Editor and joined Imran Khan in 1997. His faith, his loyalty, his commitment towards Imran Khan remained steadfast during all these years. His father was his mentor & adviser all his life. In last 5 years, I always believed in him and always stood with him in his difficult times. I never realised that he valued my small gestures so much that he called me to break this news and wanted me to be his side on his oath ceremony. Truly I discovered a great success story, a great human being and a great friend in
