My dear friend and NED EE professor Mohammad Nauman passed away earlier today.

Alas, my meeting with him in July this year at NEDUET will be my last.

Inna Lillaha Wa Inna Elaih e Rajeoon!

His funeral prayers will be held in NED University mosque after Asar today (Sunday in Pakistan)

Here's a picture of Professor Nauman (left) with Riaz Haq taken in July, 2009.

INNALLIAH E WA INNAELAIH E RAJE OON
I am very sad and feeling grieved on the death of this renowned professor. I pray for him to Allah that He may give the best place to him in the Jannah.
I knew him as student at NED. He was bright, honest and stood out as a man of conviction. His loss will be felt at NED. I extend my best feelings for his family. May his soul rest in peace.

Assalam-o-Aliakum,

Inalillah-e-Waina Elah-e-Rajeoon, He was the asset of the nation and we will miss him!!!!!!!!!

I know this is the most difficult time for his family on earth to bear and spend as well. But, this is basically the name of the life. Every soul which came here must has to be back to Allah at a defined time. Nobody has power to change, and we must have to agree upon because there is no other way out.

The only thing which we can do, is to pray Allah more and more for keeping him in good place, and give his family courage to bear this irreparable loss.

I don't have words to express my condolence but I'm with you to share the grief and loss by praying Allah for him to grant Paradise for ever... Ameen.
Here's a report on how people remember Prof Nauman:

Pakistan People�s Party (PPP) leader Taj Haider has said that the late Professor Mohammad Nauman was a graceful person who wanted to make the Pakistani society beautiful.

Speaking at the memorial meeting on the city campus of the NED University of Engineering and Technology on Saturday, he said, �Prof Nauman left us when we needed him the most. He was not only aware of his social responsibilities but was also an institution in himself and always strove for the betterment of down-trodden.�

He said that for a long time the people of Pakistan have been condemned to live in a society where irrationality was nibbling scientific thought and Prof Nauman not only fought against irrationality but also told us what should be done in this regard.

Noted Architect and Town Planner, Arif Hasan said that Prof Nauman was anti-establishment and that was his real strength. His biggest legacy was to fight oppression and he had an affinity with the common man and he could rationalise as well, he said.

He pointed out that Prof Nauman worked and researched with him on several issues including problems related to �Katchi Abadis,� Tharparkar, Karachi Electric Supply Corporation, Karachi Metropolitan Corporation and Lyari Expressway to name a few.

Prof Shoab Zaidi said that Prof Nauman enjoyed respect not only in his department but he was also loved by thousands of his students who were dispersed across the world. He was an incredible teacher and his legacy was social justice and education, he said.

Prof Saeed Khan said that Prof Nauman was a multi-dimensional personality and people learnt from his company. He said Prof Nauman had great attachment for the community and although both of them differed ideologically, their objective was people�s welfare. As a teacher, he was a role model, he said, and despite the fact that he was an electrical engineer, he was involved in civil works as well.

Roland deSouza said that Prof Nauman was not only a good engineer but also an excellent teacher. He said that he was a smart man, a �faqir,� a �malang,� and a simple person. He said Prof Nauman realised that panacea lies in simple living and not in consumption. �He was a man of diverse interests and Shehri-CBE was able to undertake many campaigns because of Prof Nauman,� he acknowledged.

Chairman, Department of Architecture and Planning, NED University, Dr Noman Ahmed said that people were usually confined to their specialty but Prof Nauman achieved success in various disciplines and excelled in them.

Shoab Ismael said that Prof Nauman was a perfect teacher and very kind hearted. He said although he was essentially an electrical engineer, he contributed a lot in civil engineering works when Fahimuzzaman Khan was the administrator of the defunct Karachi Metropolitan Corporation.

Human Right Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) Co-Chairman Iqbal Haider said that his organisation benefited a lot from Prof Nauman and he was a committed human rights activist and was against religious extremism.

Trade union leader Latif Mughal said that Prof Nauman played a vital role against the privatisation of the KESC because he was well aware that only poor would suffer if the utility was privatised.

Mustafa Talpur said that the death of Prof Nauman was a challenge to all activists because it was very difficult to replace him. Veteran trade union leader Usman Baloch said that Prof Nauman always defended the interests of workers and even a day before his death he was planning to do something in solidarity with slain activist Nisar Baloch. Prof Nauman�s uncle Arshad Hussain said they were good friends.
