Young Pakistanis are among the most dynamic and energetic people in society. Those who have attained a good level of education and professional status work hard at ensuring that they get on and that they achieve great things with their lives. Farhaj-Uddin Siddiqui was born in Karachi and came to the UK for higher education in 1983. He arrived having already gained B.Com from the University of Karachi as well as some practical work experience with A. F. Ferguson & Co, the largest accountancy firm in Pakistan.
He did a post graduate Diploma in Accountancy at the University of Glasgow and from there gained experience in a number of accountancy practices, and was admitted to the membership of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland in 1991, before leaving to establish his own practice in 1993.
Farhaj-Uddin Siddiqui believes that organisation is required for the Pakistani community and would like to see a system similar to co-ops established. He also believes that new technology will play an increasingly important part in the lives of everyone, so the community should recognise this and encourage their children to become involved in the increasing computerisation of our lives.
