Dr. Qadri’s father Dr. Fareed ud Din Qadri was from a small very undeveloped city of Pakistan known as Jhung. He was a doctor and a learned scholar of his time. His gift was his immense passion for socio development and revival of social values in marginalised communiteis. His prayers were later to be answered with a blessed child who he would upbring in devotion towards reviving lost human values that harness wellbeing of society at large. Remaining year’s of Dr. Fareed ud Din’s life, teach us a great lesson of devotion towards rigorous early learning and personality development. Such development methods are found embodied in different sciences of the faith of Islam.

Dr. Farid ud Din Qadri left our world in 1974 at the age of 56.
