As part of the Textile Quota Committee, he and other members disbursed quota to the exporters of the PCETA. Mr. Yousaf has also represented the business community in front of various levels of the Government of Pakistan, including the ministerial level, to discuss and resolve trade issues. Mr. Yousaf has traveled extensively around the world, which according to him, has been a great source of learning and has opened his vision on global issues. Since his move to the USA, he has continued to run his own business, and has simultaneously pursued his passion of writing books and articles, particularly on Allama Mashriqi and the Khaksars’ role towards the independence of Pakistan. During the past decade, he has conducted exhaustive research on the Pakistan movement and he continues to devote a considerable amount of time to the subject. Below is a list of Mr. Yousaf 's works:

Book Title: Allama Mashriqi & Dr. Akhtar Hameed Khan: Two Legends of Pakistan

Both Allama Mashriqi and Dr. Khan are related to the author; the former was his grandfather and the latter his uncle. The author takes great pride in being a member of a family that greatly contributed toward the Pakistani nation.

Allama Mashriqi was an eminent mathematician and scientist and a renowned scholar who broke records at Punjab University in Pakistan as well as at Cambridge University in England. He was one of the founding fathers of Pakistan and the founder of the Khaksar Movement; he played a vital role in the independence of Indo-Pakistan. The first part of this book is an eye opener, as Mashriqi’s grandson reveals facts from Pakistan’s history that are unknown to many.

Dr. Akhtar Hameed Khan was a scholar, a world renowned social scientist, and the founding father of the Pakistan Academy for Rural Development and the Orangi Pilot Project. His projects acclaimed global recognition and are benefiting millions of poor people around the world. Mashriqi and Dr. Khan were closely related. Both men’s services to Pakistan are unprecedented as they successfully mobilized the masses for their causes: Mashriqi for freedom and Dr. Khan for poverty alleviation. Mashriqi’s followers were in millions while Dr. Khan’s projects are benefiting millions.

Book Title: Pakistan's Freedom & Allama Mashriqi: Statements, Letters, Chronology of Khaksar Tehrik (Movement), Period: Mashriqi's Birth to 1947

Allama Mashriqi, one of the founding fathers of Pakistan, was one of the greatest scholars and leaders of the 20th century. "Pakistan’s Freedom & Allama Mashriqi" is a timeline of events surrounding this giant among men and his Khaksar Tehrik (also known as the Khaksar Movement).

Mashriqi, a genius, broke records at the Cambridge University (U.K.) and emerged as a world-renowned mathematician and scholar. It is believed that his academic records at the Cambridge University are yet to be broken. He held the position of Under Secretary (Education Dept.) in British India. Prior to partition, the British offered him title of Knighthood and Ambassadorship; he declined both offers. Mashriqi was also among great writers, and his monumental work is "Tazkirah" (nominated for Nobel Prize), which presents a scientific view of the Holy Quran. After resigning from the government service, Mashriqi founded the Khaksar Tehrik in 1930. This Movement created history and led to the freedom of the Indian subcontinent and the emergence of Pakistan and India.

"Pakistan’s Freedom & Allama Mashriqi" is the result of almost a decade of exhaustive research by Mr. Nasim Yousaf (grandson of Mashriqi). It is one of the most important documents in Indo-Pak history that has ever been produced on the Khaksar Movement. This work will go a long way in unveiling many hidden facts surrounding independence, as Pakistan and India’s history remains incomplete and imperfect without discussing the Khaksar Movement’s role toward freedom.

This chronology goes far beyond merely listing dates of events; it includes important correspondence, resolutions, press statements, official communiques, photos, and much more. This work allows the reader to get an undistorted and factual understanding of Mashriqi and the Khaksars’ unparalleled resistance and suffering that mobilized the nation for freedom. "Pakistan’s Freedom & Allama Mashriqi" is an eye-opener and an immense source of information for scholarly studies, historians, professors, students, film-makers, journalists, and others interested in Indo-Pak history.

The editor has used credible sources, including non-Khaksar materials. In addition, his personal knowledge provides great insight into the life of Mashriqi and his Movement. Based on this information, Mr. Yousaf has provided comments wherever needed.

Book Title: Pakistan's Birth and Allama Mashraqi: Chronology and Statements, Period: 1947-1963

Allama Mashraqi (Inayatullah Khan), sage of the East, was among few courageous leaders who bravely fought for the independence of India that resulted in the creation of Pakistan and India. Mashraqi's role prior to and after the partition of India is vital to the history of the Indian sub-continent. He was founder of Khaksar Tehreek (Movement) (founded in 1930) and Islam League (founded after independence). Mashraqi devoted his life to the uplift of the common man. He was not only an outstanding leader of the 20th century but also one of the greatest revolutionaries, visionaries, scholars, and mathematicians that emerged in that part of the world. Mashraqi's genius was proven when early on when he set unprecedented academic records at the Cambridge University (U.K.). There he completed four Triposes in five years with distinction. He was declared a Bachelor Scholar, Foundation Scholar and a Wrangler. It is believed that his academic records at this University are yet to be surpassed. He returned to India after his education and within a few years, in 1917, at age 29, he was appointed Under Secretary (Education Dept.) in British India. The British offered him Ambassadorship to Afghanistan in 1920 and the title of Sir in 1921. However, he declined both offers, and opted to represent and fight for the masses. Mashraqi was also among great speakers and writers, and his monumental work is "Tazkirah" ("Tazkira") an interpretation of the Holy Quran from a scientific perspective. Indeed, these credentials speak of a man born with astounding skills and exceptional abilities. Such personalities are born once in centuries. Mashraqi's followers and supporters ran in millions. He passed away in 1963 and well over 100,000 people came to attend his funeral and mourn his demise. With his death, an important chapter of Pakistan and India's history closed, as he played a vital role in both the pre- and post- independence eras. Though Mashraqi passed away, people will continue to be inspired by this legendary personality. May God rest his soul in peace.

It gives me immense happiness to have completed another chronology, Pakistan's Birth and Allama Mashraqi: Chronology and Statements, Period: 1947-1963. This book lists important events, activities of the Islam League (that Mashraqi founded soon after Pakistan's independence), and statements of Mashraqi and various other persons. It lists Mashraqi's efforts in regards to the freedom of Kashmir. It gives dates of government actions against Mashraqi and how he was prevented from playing any role in the political arena. It also documents court proceedings in which Mashraqi was implicated on fabricated cases. This work is a continuation of my previous chronology titled: Pakistan's Freedom and Allama Mashriqi: Statements, Letters, Chronology of Khaksar Tehrik (Movement), Period: Mashriqi's Birth to 1947. I am currently working on another publication that surrounds the correspondence of the Viceroy of India, Governors of various Provinces, and the British senior officers in the U.K. regarding the elimination of the Khaksar Movement (Khaksar Tehreek). This will further reveal the importance of the Khaksar Movement's role in the freedom of the Indian sub-continent and how the British felt threatened by it and thus pounced on it. The British's actions against Mashraqi and the Khaksars' rigorous efforts to demand the freedom of India, in fact, mobilized the nation to rise for freedom. This reveals who actually suffered to seek freedom from the British that resulted in the creation of Pakistan and India.

Mr. Yousaf’s Message to the Pakistani Nation

Self-reliance is the key to progress and growth. A nation's success lies in self-help and hard work; strong nations do not depend on foreign aid.

The survival of Pakistan lies in education. Many of Pakistan's social, political, and economic problems can be resolved by making education a top priority. Through education, Pakistan has the potential to become a very prosperous and affluent nation.

Mr. Yousaf’s Message to Pakistani Women

Women are the backbone and pillar of any nation. The developed nations of the world have attained economic prosperity with the help of women. Fulfill your role by acquiring education and helping the nation achieve affluence. The country cannot succeed without your help. Pakistan needs you, so apply yourself and take on a more active role in society. I salute those who are already actively involved in economic activities.
