Lt.Cdr.(R) Mahfooz Hasan Taqvi
(known at Petaro as M.H. Taqvi) was
professor of Mathematics
at Petaro. He joined the
college in 1964 and left in 1978.
He was born on
30 June 1918. He had five children. Taqvi Sahib
died at Karachi in the year 2000 of old age
He was my first Mathematics teacher in 9th
class at Petaro. Although very loud in his
expression, the late Taqvi Sahib was one of the
most loving creatures of God that I have ever met.
He always had utmost regard for me, treating me
like his own son.
However, Taqvi Sahib was not a very innovative person.
He would rather echo thoughts that were in harmony with
his own rather than expressing his thoughts in his own
following autograph was written by Taqvi Sahib after he
glanced through my autograph book and saw what Toor Sahib had
written. Those thoughts resonated with his own, and Taqvi
Sahib immediately wrote the same thoughts down with a small
Taqvi Sahib was a very sincere person himself, and that was
the key to his success.
Allah grant Taqvi Sahib the choicest place in Jannatul Firdaus!
