Biography

Asad is a Lahore-based social entrepreneur and minority rights activist fighting injustice. After receiving an MBA in marketing from Karachi’s Institute of Business Administration (IBA), Asad passed up lucrative corporate opportunities to rebuild a primary school in Lahore. Garrison Grammar School, now enrolling 225 children, provides education primarily to underprivileged kids and specifically recruits otherwise disadvantaged minorities. Despite limited resources, Asad created a thriving educational community that fosters creativity, analytical thinking, and inclusion.  Asad vocally confronts intolerance against minorities in Pakistan.  He leverages social media and his personal blog to speak as a minority rights advocate. In the future, Asad hopes to build several primary schools in Lahore using the United States charter school model and plans to explore documentary filmmaking to further highlight social injustice and disparity in Pakistan.
