Late Brig. (R) Ijaz Akbar
Brig. R Muhammad Ijaz Akbar (Late) was a notable educationist in Pakistan. After his Military training, he got a diploma in Education from the UK, and later worked at various institutions in the military such as Military College Jhelum, Army Burn Hall, Abbottabad, among others. After retiring from the Army as the Principal of Army Burn Hall in 1983, he went on to establish PIPS. Brig. Ijaz (Late) firmly believed that it was of utmost importance to mold individuals that become excellent Muslims, have strong sense of nationalism, and uphold honesty. At PIPS, we tirelessly work to take all possible measures to follow his footsteps and take PIPS to even greater heights INSHA’ALLAH. We pray that ALLAH (SWT) gives us the ability to become a fraction of individual that he was and may ALLAH (SWT) bless him with the highest rank in Jannah. Ameen!
