Born and raised in Sahiwal, a town south of Lahore, in British India (now in Pakistan), and formerly known as Montgomery, he was the first to bring Japanese collaboration to Pakistan and set up a textile related industry at his birthplace, named Nippon Bobbin Company (Pakistan) Limited. He was involved in administrative matters of the town. The Government of Pakistan honored him for his services with regards to Civil Defence during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971.
He was a noted cricket administrator. He was the president of the Multan Division Cricket Association for many years. Various international matches including two ODIs (One-day Internationals) were staged at the small stadium of Sahiwal owing to his efforts. He was a member for life of BCCP – Board of Control for Cricket in Pakistan – presently known as Pakistan Cricket Board. In the words of legendary fast bowler, Fazal Mahmood, he 'was the pioneer of cricket in [Pakistan's] Punjab'.
