Pasha Haroon: a tryst Pasha Haroon: a tryst with history

Rare front view of historical events ofPakistan

http://www.dawn.com/news/1239465/pasha-haroon-a-tryst-with-history

ITíS not often that one has a ringside view of some of the most significant events in a nationís history and more than a passing association with the individuals who helped shape them. But that is exactly the privilege that life afforded to Pasha Haroon.

The niece of Sultan Mohammed Shah, Aga Khan III Ė the 48th Imam of the Ismaili Shias Ė she was married in 1937 to Yusuf Haroon, son of Haji Abdullah Haroon who was one of the central figures of the Pakistan movement.

The hub of political activity in pre-partition Sindh was Seafield, the elder Haroonís residence located on the road in Karachi that today bears his name, and it was where Mrs Haroon lived after her marriage.

From that vantage point, and through her own involvement with the independence movement, she got to know closely many of the figures that populate Pakistanís history, including Mohammed Ali Jinnah, Fatima Jinnah, Liaquat Ali Khan, Raana Liaquat Ali, Ayub Khan, Iskander Mirza, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Nusrat Bhutto and Benazir among others. Some of them were not only visitors to Seafield but houseguests from time to time.
