Ziauddin Ahmad Suleri (Urdu: ضیاء الدین احمد سلہری) (or ZA Suleri; 1913-1999) was a notable journalist and writer from Pakistan. He served as Editor of Dawn and the Pakistan Times and founded the Times of Karachi. He was outspoken and frequently jailed for his statements and activities. He was also called Pip (short for patriotic and preposterous). In 1965 he headed Military Public Relations directorate of Pakistan. In his early life he was an activist of Pakistan movement and wrote My Leader, the first semi-biographical work in English on Pakistan’s founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah. He was also the chairman of Quaid-i-Azam Academy. He died of a heart attack in Lahore.
When ZA Suleri wanted to write his autobiography, he chose Boys Will Be Boys as its title. The autobiography never materialized, and after his death when his daughter, Sara Suleri, decided to write a tribute to him, she gave this title to the book.
