  1. Salaam sahib,

    I am a great fan of Nawab Bahadur Yar Jung. Unfortunately, we haven’t projected him very well. Very few Pakistani’s now about even just about his name. People don’t know about the character and services of that great man.
    It’s nice to find a site and a academy on his name. I haven’t found any book, research work or any other stuff about nawab saheb on this site.
    If you publish some online material related to Nawab saheb. It will be more beneficial for all the readers not only with in the country but also all around the world.

    Well Wisher for your’s academy
