Terrorism started creeping into Pakistan from Afghanistan in the 1990s. In late 1996 I was appointed as Director General of Health by the interim government of Meraj Khalid and stayed in that position till October 1999.

Zakota Jinns By Dr Ghayur Ayub

This term was introduced by a well-known journalist and anchor person Rauf Klasra for the bureaucrats of Pakistan. I agree with him but not all bureaucrats are Zakota Jinns. Clear majority is. Working as director general of health from 1996 to 1999, I came across such Jinns. They were full of arrogance trying to impose their self-centered opinions rather than concentrating selflessly on bettermen Click here to read Full Article

Science and Quran on creation of life (Part I) by Dr Ghayur Ayub
Posted By: Ghayyur_Ayub On: 21/Apr/2017 Views:994 Replies:0 
Living in a modern world of science, how could one balance Islam with science as the two seemingly run on a collision course. At least that's what our traditionalist religious custodians tell us. For example, take the creation of life on earth. The traditionalists give a completely different picture of its origin than what the scientists tell us. The scientists say that earth came into existence Click here to read Full Article
 
More provinces in Pakistan by Dr Ghayur Ayub

During the last days of PPP government, a voice from Hazara resurfaced demanding a separate Hazara province. It was the voice of the white bearded Haider Zaman Khan who has been struggling for a separate province for many years. The independent media picked it up and spread it like a wild fire. Soon, the media-addicted public started asking for divisions of all the provinces. Two provincial assemb Click here to read Full Article

Describing Pashtuns on April 26, 1903 at Shahi Bagh Peshawar, Lord Curzon said, “Pathan is a curious mixture. He is a man of war but he is also a born trader.” He was talking about Pashtuns’ trading capabilities and comparing them with other races in India. Had he gone in details he would have mentioned that Pashtuns lived their lives on three platforms. First, their culture which is broad based a Click here to read Full Article

One day, during the exile in London, Mr Nawaz Sharif asked me to brief him about Parachinar. I did.

The purpose of life by Dr Ghayur Ayub

Three decades ago, I was asked about the purpose of my life. Without hesitation, I replied, to achieve the highest position in my profession which I attained at a young age. Did I sense the fulfilment? Not at all! If the same question is asked of me today, my answer would be, to nurture my soul. Nurturing one’s soul requires deep knowledge regarding theology, philosophy and spirituality. A que Click here to read Full Article
