“I have had an illustrious career of 60 years, during which my utmost desire was to leave behind a legacy of exemplary service,” he said. He retired as Deputy Superintendent of Police on May 23, 2015. During his police service, he has served in almost entire province, as DSP Headquarters Punjab. “As a police officer I have exerted myself to serve the nation to the best of my ability,” he asserted.

When asked about the foreseeable need of Pakistani Christians, he was quick to point out to the lack of education and said, “Christian youth must seek higher education and explore new avenues in government sector jobs, army, police, judiciary and compete in the CSS exams etc.”

He urged Christian youth to step forward and apply themselves with full might, “Be politicians, engineers, bureaucrats,” he advised. He recommended youth to take care of their health, “which is a great gift from God.” “Above all make efforts to soak in Biblical teachings,” he said.
