By Kazi Zulkader Siddiqui, 671/Latif

Moneir Aslam Malik, kit no. 427/Iqbal House joined Cadet College Petaro in 1963 in Liaquat House. He was moved to Iqbal House in 1968 when that house was built. He left the college in 1969 after completing his Intermediate.

He was born on 27 June 1950 and got married to Mrs. Mumtaz on 2 December 1975. They have 3 children - Mansoor Mujtaba, Ali Mustafa and Abbas Murtaza.

Moneir is my batch mate (1964-1969), and was one of the most polished boys in our class. He was known for playing pranks along with a couple of others. He was very good with his writing skills and was very involved in a number of club activities. He was the President of Funkada Dramatic Society and Social Welfare Club. He was the Editor-in-Chief of The Cadet college magazine in 1969.

He was an excellent swimmer, and became the College Captain of the Swimming team in 1968-69.

After passing out from Petaro, Moneir joined Pakistan Army in the EME corps. He retired from the army as a Lieutenant Colonel.

After his retirement, Moneir decided to enter into his own business. After some ups and downs, he finally settled down in the restaurant business. He owns Ye Olde Hangout in F-7 Markaz, Islamabad, which is a popular place.

Moneir is as sophisticated as ever and is always very proper in his etiquettes and behaviour and language.

Moneir's elder brother, the late Wg.Cdr.(R) Zaheer Aslam Malik, kit no. 168/Jinnah was also a Petarian.

It is an honour for me to be the batch mate of Lt.Col.(R) Moneir Aslam Malik.
