About Me

Hi Ubuntu Community, I am amongst the first lovers and users of Ubuntu-Linux in Pakistan. I am promoting the Ubuntu-Pakistan LoCo Team that now has over 715+ members since last April 2005.

My interest in Ubuntu

My dream is to make available all the regional languages of Pakistan available in Ubuntu-Linux so that we can spread the Ubuntu spirit throughout our developing nation promoting ICT and connecting every village and city in the country. Not only that, Ubuntu-Linux helps us as an alternative Operating System that can remove Software Piracy from our region promoting respect for all!

Todate, I have voluntarily been part of team based initiatives that have trained and certified over 5000 Ubuntu-Linux users in Pakistan. We continue to promote Ubuntu now through Ubuntu-Linux User Groups that are being created in various Universities. Our next target is to release a localized version of Ubuntu-Linux in Urdu, Sindhi, Pujabi, Pushto and Balochi including over another 70 regional languages in the future.


I have been working and promoting ICT Software Freedom for Everyone fueling the Free and Open Source Softawre Movement in Asia. My career IT related career spans over 10 years. I also teach Free and Open Source and write Software Advocacy related articles in local and international publications.
