Greetings, नमस्ते, آداب, Saluton, اسسلام علیکم, Bonjour!
Welcome to my Wikipedia user page.
I'm a Wikipedia editor, living in Karachi, Pakistan. I am studying Law from the University of London International Programmes, and am receiving academic instructions from SZABIST. I completed high school from St. Michael's Convent School.
Although I joined in early 2009, I only began actively editing in October 2009. I tend to contribute to articles that interest me, which tend to fall under the subjects of planes, technology and science, web applications and services, politics; Pakistani politics in particular and the world politics in general.
I revert vandalism from Wikipedia articles and take pride in it, and I recognize the importance of in line references and citations, and most, if not all of my edits are accompanied by references and/or citations. I also believe that all encyclopedia articles and stubs should have links to relevant articles. Often, when reading through the article, I use the links in the See also section to find further topics of interests, and where the See also section isn't available, I do create it with links to relevant articles.
I am a web developer, and have designed, developed and maintain web sites and wikis for different individuals, non profits and organizations. I do all of this work without charge, out of my own free will, as a hobby. I prefer web development on open source software, and most of the web sites I develop and maintain are WordPress based, followed by Joomla and Drupal. The wikis I maintain are based on the MediaWiki software.
After being a science student throughout high school, I decided to switch to Law. This was perhaps one of the best decisions I took. I enrolled in the University of London International Programmes, and also enrolled in SZABIST for academic instructions.
I cleared the first of the three years of LLB, passing Public Law, Criminal Law, Common Law Reasoning and Institutions and Elements of the Law of Contract, and took Tort Law, Property Law, Law of Trusts and Introduction to Islamic Law as my subjects for the 2nd year.
During my first year at Law school, the Internet censorship in Pakistan annoyed me to the verge that I decided to do something about it. The ever increasing net of censorship was too much to bear for me. The only solution that I could think of was to take the Federal Government of Pakistan and the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority to Court, challenging the legality, and Constitutionality of the internet censorship, including the ban on YouTube.
The case was filed before the High Court of Sindh, and as of now, the case is pending before a divisional bench of the High Court.
The Constitution of Pakistan guarantees a right to Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Information, Freedom of the Press, Right to Education amongst other rights. In all, the censorship is a blatant violation of over a dozen fundamental rights including those mentioned above.
