Mr. Muhammad Ishaq Malik was from a prominent Arain family of Pakistan and born in Mozang, Lahore. His brother-in-law Mian Feroz-ud-Din had proposed the title “ Quad-e-Azam” to Mr. Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan and was his close ally. Since the very banging the family was humbly associated to the cause of patriotism.
Mr. Muhammad Ishaq Malik was also blessed with sense of charity and community service from the start. In 1947, million of deprived and homeless Muslims were migrating to Pakistan and needed help of those who could afford. The sprit of Ansar-e-Madina was carried out by a lot of softhearted Pakistanis and Mr. Muhammad Ishaq Malik belonged to the same group of generous Muslims. The people who were migrating had no homes; they were crossing the border and losing lives of their loved ones. At this time of need Mr. Muhammad Ishaq Malik pledged to serve the people with every possible resource he could involve. He was a wealthy man and was a renowned transporter. He not just arranged boarding and lodging for refugees but also used his personal Cessna Airplane to drop food and supplies to those who needed it. The sole purpose of his life at that moment was to serve his countrymen through every possible means. It was the spirit of sacrifice, which carried on every later. The misery of the people who had migrated continued to be a burden for them and for the government for a long period of time. This unfortunate demise pushed Mr. Muhammad Ishaq Malik, to decide to build a hospital for the people and then proposed the idea to his brother Mr. Muhammad Shafi Malik ( Sitara-I-Imtiaz ) to carry this idea in joint effort. Unfortunately he could not live long and this task of charity was carried out later on by Mr. Muhammad Shafi Malik ( Sitara-i-Imtiaz ) and the dream was accomplished by the younger brother. On the occasion of Shimal Conference Mr. Muhammad Shafi Malik participated in savaging the life of Quaid-e-Azam by lending support to his falling rickshaw. He was the man advised by the Quaid to carry out the tasks of charity, pledged this meticulous task till today and Mumtaz Bakhtawar is the proud announcement of the promise.
