Please introduce yourself in 1 or 2 lines?
Hello, my name is Mohammad Huzaifa Nizam. I’m from Chitral and I write about the lesser known parts of the history of Pakistan.
What is your biggest accomplishment so far in life?
My biggest achievement is probably the fact that I’m one of the youngest published writers of Pakistan. Alhumdulilah, it’s quite an achievement for someone my age.
What is one thing you cannot do without?
Books. I always have some reading material with me in the form of a book or an ebook or something else but I often make sure that I have something to read about.
Your favourite tweeps?
If by tweeps you mean twitter people, I have quite a liking for Tequirmos who writes of Pakistan’s current geopolitics. Meraj Hassan, who’s quite a juggernaut in independence era history and few others too.
Facebook, Twitter or Instagram?
Twitter, definitely Twitter.
What are your healthy habits?
I read a lot, I guess it serves as a healthy habit since it relaxes a person. I spend time with people I care about and well, I’m usually there for people.
You’ve been given an elephant on your birthday as gift, what would you do with it?
Probably build it a sanctuary where it can stay happy.
What’s your favourite holiday destination?
I’ve always wanted to visit Paris and Rome, but locally my favourite spots are nathiagali and Chitral. I’ve been visiting them since I was very young.
How do you handle stress and pressure?
I believe one can find refuge from stress in the entity of God. Religion is the sole sanctuary one has from worldly problems. But on a temporary basis, I usually write poetry to express my feeling or start writing about history to get my mind off of things.
