From last year -Met Brigadier Iqbal Shafi first time in Quetta while he was commandant infantry school and later handed over to another great uncle Brigadier Z.R Shah,14 Baluch.
Met the great and extremely well read man more frequently at my uncle maj gen agha manzoor raufs (uncle of anwar mansur-baluch regt) house at chaklala scheme 1 where he was a very frequent visitor.
Brigadier Iqbal Shafi was a China lover and wrote extensively about China and PLA.
He was also a very active member of Sir Syed Society along with my uncle Prof Munawar Ali Khan (Sikandara Rao-Yusufzai Pathan).
In his late age he married gen agha manzur raufs wife sister- this did not go very well with the children from his first wife !
brig Iqbal shafi family was originally from sham chaurasi julundhur but his father Mr shafi an eminent prof in aligarh had settled in aligarh.
Last I met him on the wedding ceremony of general raufs grand daughter with son of gen sabeeh bukhari,SJ,Engrs in Lahore.
A great loss although he played his innings well
And contributed to the hilt while in service and as a retired gentleman- Major A.H Amin (Retired)
