Cultivating Global STEM Talent by Leveling Fields

Syed Masood Akhtar

InnaLilLaHay wainna alayhay rajaoon. First Safdar and now Masood. It’s like a left and a right punch on my heart. May Allah help me and all our friends. (Sohail – First Reaction)

He and his bicycle. What were the days! His whole family was so simple and humble. I recall several conversations with his father during my visits to his home. I always thought to have such modesty. Looking into me now, I don’t see any resemblance of such simplicity in me. Masood had those characteristics. During my last visit to Pakistan, I met him and Mushir in their office, that’s when I last saw him. Sometimes his love and intensity of friendship towards me used to make me uncomfortable, as it kept me thinking that I am not returning the same. He called me just before Ramzan to talk about the marriage proposal of her daughter. Since Naheed started her cooking channel on YouTube, Masood used to comment and call her to let her know how his dishes turned out when he tried her recipies. Those comments are now dear to me. I not only lost a sincere friend but a role model of humbleness. (Muhammad Sohail Ahmed)

Tragic news heard another kindhearted friend passed away it is difficult to express sorrow. Allah masood bhai ki maghfrat farmay aur jannat ma aala muqam atta karay aur family ko sabre atta karay ameen. 

اناللہ وانا الیہ راجعون
ایک اور صدمہ دینے والی خبر۔ اللہ تعالٰی مسعود کو اپنے جوار رحمت میں جگہ دے، مغفرت فرمائے، درجات بلند کرے اور جنت الفردوس میں اعلی مقام عطا کرے۔ اللہ تعالی مسعود کے اہل خانہ کو اس صدمے کو برداشت کرنے کا حوصلہ اور صبر عطا کرے۔ آمین

May Allah bless his soul. He became my colleague at Engro Foods in 2010/11. Very dedicated worker. (Shams Sheikh)

اناللہ واناالیہ راجعون ۔۔۔ ابھی ابھی خیریت کے لیے وہاٹس ایپ کھولا تو مسعود کی رحلت کی خبر نظر آئی۔۔۔ دو دن سے بہتری کی خبروں نے امید بڑھا دی تھی۔۔۔ اب لگ رہا ہے بجھنے سے پہلے شعلہ بھڑکنے کا عمل تھا۔ اللہ ہمارے بھائی کے درجات بلند کرے۔۔۔ وہ تو اپنے نرم لہجے ہی کے باعث بخش دیا جائے گا۔ 

اناللہ واناالیہ راجعون ۔۔۔ مسعود بھی رخصت ہوا۔۔۔ اللہ اس کے درجات بلند کرے اور سب لواحقین کو صبر دے۔ آمین۔

کمر باندھے ہوئے چلنے کو یاں سب یار بیٹھے ہیں
بہت آگے گئے، باقی جو ہیں تیار بیٹھے ہیں

گھر والوں کو صبر دے آمین۔۔۔

Ahmed Safi

Masood and I, worked together few months in Shipyard. Moreover his first and last name is same as my name. We had good time in Shipyard. (Wassaf Akhtar).
I have the honor of having him as a classmate twice: one at NED and other at IBA…He was truly a gentleman- humble, smiling and always ready to help…I recall cutting jokes during TE industrial tour and also at IBA which sometimes were borderline he never took them personally and always enjoyed…May ALLAH grant him a mughfirah, a highest place in Jannah and sabr to his family. (Ubaid Ur Rehman).
I know Masood since College time. He went to Adamjee Scidnce college and I went to Dehli college. Very humble and simple individual. We never knew he was in DAP when we were in PHILIPS.
Allah for give him and award a place in Janna. (Aslam Umar)
