I had a 40 years old association with this Shaheen and he is lovingly mentioned in our Memoirs -- From Indus to Oxus !!

Yesterday, March 18th, was the first death anniversary of the Pakistani falcon MM Alam !! He was a true ace, a national hero, globally respected and a symbol of love for Pak Sarzameen and Ummat e Rasul (sm) ! By ethnicity, he was a Bihari/bengali who opted to stay in Medina e Sani after 1971 and then took part in Afghan Jihad to defend this Pak Sarzameen from another dimension. Alhamdolillah, I had a 40 years old association with this Shaheen and he is lovingly mentioned in our Memoirs -- From Indus to Oxus !!

It was Alam's sb's last wish that I translate this book in Urdu also. We started the work immediately and now one year after his passing away into the spiritual realm, we are honored to announce the launch of the Urdu version -- Darya e Sindh sey Darya e Amu tak !!

InshAllah, we will make formal announcement on March 23rd !! a Befitting day for this epic historical and emotional account of an amazing war of freedom, translated on the wishes of MM Alam sahib !!

So fasten your seat belts for an astounding flight roller coaster flight into the melting pot of history. We will announce the launch on March 23rd inshAllah !!!!

Between the English version and the Urdu translation, I lost two great men who had influenced my life, thoughts and passions -- My beloved father and my friend/teacher/elder MM Alam sb. Both had seen the english book and both wanted its Urdu version. Now both would over see it from heavens inshAllah !

Recite Fatiha for Abba Jan and Alam sb please. Barak Allah feek ! I miss them so much today
