THE death(Oct 22) of Azmat Ali Khan, founder of Bazm-i-sciency Adab, is another great loss for the nation. He was a man of great calibre. His efforts to promote science and art had won him respect not only in Pakistan but also abroad.

He served the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan as managing editor for their journal for many years and was instrumental in getting it indexed in the Medline/PubMed, which brought this journal in the row of international journals.

He tutored a number of doctors in the art of writing for medical journals. He produced a number of books and monographs on the work of eminent science and arts scholars.

Despite being a great man, he led a very simple life and dedicated himself to the promotion of scientific literature. He deserves recognition by the government for uplifting the image of Pakistan.

I second the author's opinion, Azmat Ali Khan was a true lover of Science and worked tirelessly to make it accessible for the Pakistani people through the medium of Urdu language. He deserves to honored for his services posthumously by the Government of Pakistan. As his neighbour in Karachi, I saw him lead a simple life always dedicated to his love of learning. But above all, I saw firsthand the tremendous love and admiration his peers and professors in Karachi had for him. Azmat Sahab will be remembered with respect and affection inshaAllah, even after his passing away from this mortal life.
