Dr. Faheem Hussain
is currently teaching at LUMS. He has a PhD in Theoretical Physics from Imperial College London though his interests include socio-political movements. He was a part of the social movements in the 60s as a student in London from 1960 to 1966, postdoctoral fellow at Chicago and then as a young faculty member at the University of Islamabad (now the QAU) from 1968 onwards. This was a time of resistance and hope across the world including Pakistan where the Anti-Ayub movement was at its peak and student & trade union involvement was high.
