wali Khan Aseer -
I adore him not only because he is a great father but also because
he is an outstanding teacher, an honest officer, an amazing poet, a
sincere philanthropist and above all, an extraordinary human being.
Belonging to the most backward area of Chitrali and facing all
sorts of hardships Mr. Aseer still managed to top the matriculation
exam in the Chitral State, remained at highest posts in the
education department and retired at Grade 20.
But those worldly successes donít make him extraordinary, what
makes him impressive is his character, honesty, humanity,simplicity
and humbleness. What makes him exceptional is the fact that no
successes in life whether of his own or his children make him
arrogant. What makes him amazing is that he meets every single
person whether the richest man or a poor farmer with the same
enthusiasm and gentleness. I can never forget the statement of one
of my classmates, the shortest guy in the class. ď Zubi, Iíve never
met such a polite and impressive man like your dad. He talked to me
in a way that for a while I completely forgot that I was talking to
someone more than a foot taller to me.
What makes him unique is the fact that after retirement he refused
to stay in big city and enjoy the modern facilities but preferred
to go back to his own area and serve his people. And that he is
still doing, Alhamdulillah.
In short, Mr. Aseerís whole life is a lesson for his children, his
students and the whole Chitrali Nation. That how a person can
remain humble and simple after getting all the successes in life.
How a person can sincerely invest his money, time and energy for
the betterment of his area and people. How a person can prefer the
benefits of his people to his own and still manages to stay happy,
contented and peaceful.
Dad! You always say that you are proud of us. But we can never be
like you in thousand years.
God always bless you and give you more and more energy to serve
your nation. Aameen
