  • Omar Kureishi (1928 – 14 March 2005) was a distinguished Pakistani writer. He had also worked in the advertising,[1] aviation and journalism industry,[2] writing for many newspapers, including Dawn, The Pakistan Times, Morning News and The Guardian, London.[2] He is best known for his cricket writings and commentary but he was also a keen observer of political and social developments and wrote about them, in his own words, not with fury, but certainly with "exasperation and anger".[2]

    He died on Monday, 14 March 2005, at the age of 77, due to a heart disease, leaving behind his widow, a son, Javed, and two grandchildren.[2] He was awarded the Sitara-i-Imtiaz (Star of Excellence) in 2001 by the President of Pakistan.[2]
