About Begum Sarfraz Iqbal

Born in Rohtak, India, Begum Sarfraz Iqbal migrated to Pakistan at a young age and became a patron of Urdu literature and art in Pakistan. She authored two books: Daman-e-Yusuf (Mavara Publishers, 1989) and Jo Bachay Hain Sang (Naqoosh, 2002) and wrote regular columns in Daily Ausaf (Islamabad) and Daily Pakistan. She also published numerous articles in other literary magazines including Mah-e-Nau.

Begum Sarfraz Iqbal was a philanthropist who introduced the idea of adopting schools to improve the quality of education in Pakistan and ceaselessly worked to help disadvantaged people in Pakistan. The events commemorating her contributions focus on ideas that unite people across religious and cultural divides and focus attention on ideas and philosophies of moderate Muslim thinkers.
