Product Description


This is the inspirational account of how Mohammed Sarwar rose to fame, fortune and political power from modest beginnings in rural Pakistan. Born in Punjab in 1952, Sarwar's early years were characterized by hardship and persecution. But this all changed after arriving in Glasgow, where he transformed a corner shop on the verge of bankruptcy to a Cash-and-Carry wholesale business with a turnover of more than GBP200m a year. From business he moved into politics, becoming MP for Glasgow Govan, then Glasgow Central. No stranger to controversy - he voted against Tony Blair's decision to invade Iraq, and was famously caught in a News of the World sting in 1997 for allegedly bribing an election rival - he has also been heavily involved in extensive charity humanitarian work in Pakistan. This work continued in his position as Governor of Punjab.
