Dr. Mubashir Hasan is celebrated as the man who gave the PPP its firm socialist mooring in the 1970s.
There are those who claim that the party itself was born in his residence. In any case, the radicalism of the early PPP manifesto bore a heavy imprint of Dr. Mubashir Hasan’s worldview and politics.
It was only appropriate that he took the helm of economic policy-making as Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s Finance Minister.
May his soul rest in perfect peace.
