Another Soul Has Left This Earth


Inna lillahi wa inna ilahi rajion

November 22, 1928 — January 10, 2012

I have just found out about the death of my friends father.

Pir Pagara was the spiritual leader of the Hurs and chief of the Pakistan Muslim League Functional party.

I lived with his daughter Kausar on a large farm in Al Awir, Dubai, of which I have written about previously on my blog. Not only was Pir Pagara a great family man, but he was also a very important political figure in Pakistan.

I had the pleasure to meet him quite a few times during one of my trips to Karachi with Kausar and I always remember him getting me to recite Surah Al Fatiha to him after we had all had dinner after which he gave me a gift of some beautiful cream, gold and red silk to have made into one of my emirati dresses. My thoughts today are with Kausar and her brothers and the rest of the family.
