I was born in Pakistan, raised in Norway, and worked my way through sales, marketing, and design in the UK for companies like DotMusic, Canon, MSB International, British Gas, and some of the largest media houses in Norway like Aller Media and as a Interactive Project Manager for the news giant NTB
I used to host a radio show in 1995 in Norway before I went back to Pakistan. But when I came back to Norway after a few years, I started CrazeFM radio which won “The most popular tv and radio award” in 2007. Since its start to the end date, over 3 million listeners had heard my show. On that show, I used to interview LIVE celebrities from that subcontinent. Along with that I also hosted a show on FM in Norway, bringing my radio hosting to over 10 000 hours of airtime discussing every single issue under the sky. I couldn’t be more thankful, as to how much I learned from this platform.
As someone who just can’t sit still and is bursting with ideas, I decided to quit my fulltime job as a Project Manager in 2015 to start off a supplement brand, while importing food products for various exotic stores in Norway. That was the day Tahoor was born.
Via Tahoor I got the opportunity to sell raw and pure honey to dozens of stores in Norway. Tahoor was also the first store to bring in the ajwa date from Saudi, plus medjoul dates from Palestine. Tahoor Store has been very active in the past few years by sharing its profit with the needy in Norway and other parts of the world.
