Ghulam Haider Wyne Urdu: غلام حیدر وائیں‎, born 1940 in Amritsar Indian Punjab was a well-known politician of Pakistan. His family migrated from India to Pakistan in 1947 after the independence. He was the Leader of the Opposition (Pakistan) and former chief minister of Pakistan's most populous province Punjab. He held chief minister's position from 1990 to 1993, when President Ghulam Ishaq Khan dissolved the Constituent Assembly and removed his government in 1993 from Punjab along with Nawaz Sharif's governments in Pakistan. He was brutally murdered near Mian Channu while doing the rounds of his election campaign in 1993.

Overview

Ghulam Haider Wyne had a clean and spotless record. He had risen from an ordinary political worker to the opposition leader in the National Assembly and later the Chief Minister. He regretted that the nation had not followed the principles of Quaid-i-Azam and the objectives for which he had established Pakistan could not be achieved. He was a down to earth politician who had devoted his life for the welfare of the nation. he led a simple and honourable life in a dilapidated house in the ghettos of Mian Channu. He never plundered national wealth like other politicians. Once he presented few copies of daily Nawa-i-Waqt which were kept in an old iron box and said he had carried these copies from Amritsar while migrating to Pakistan. He visited England to collect donations for schools but never built his own house and his wife is still living in her sister's home.

Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust

Ghulam Haider Wyne was the founder and very first chairman of Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust (NPT) which he established in July 1992. He provided over 40 kanal land to the Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust near Johar Town Lahore. He set up over 18 educational institutions in the small city of Mian Channu which could be given the status of a university. That is why he is still remembered as Sir Syed Ahmad Khan of Mian Channu after his death.[clarification needed]
