Early life

Zafar was born from a Janjua family at Kot Meerath, Wazirabad, which at the time was part of British India. He received his early education in Mission High School, Wazirabad, Gujranwala District.[4] He received his early education in Wazirabad and matriculated from Patiala and then passed his intemediate from the then, Aligarh College. Next, he worked in the postal department of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, the same place where his father worked, but resigned over a row with his seniors.[5][6] He rejoined Aligarh College and gained his B.A..[7]


After graduation, Khan was appointed secretary to Mohsin-ul-Mulk, then in Bombay. Then he worked for some time as a translator in Hyderabad, Deccan, rising to the post of Secretary, Home Department. He returned from Hyderabad and launched his daily Zamindar from Lahore which was founded by his father Maulvi Sirajuddin Ahmad.[8][9]

He was against the Ahmadiyya Movement and waged a campaign against it in his daily Zamindar.[10] In, 1934 when the British government banned Zamindar, Maulana Zafar Ali Khan, sued and got the government orders revoked by the court. He stood firm against Mirza Ghulam Ahmed and tried to falsify his claim of Prophethood through his rational columns.[2]


Khan’s interest in poetry began in his childhood. His poems have religious and political sentiment.[3] He was specially versed in impromptu compositions. His poetical output includes Baharistan, Nigaristan, and Chamanistan. His other works are Marka-e-Mazhab-o-Science, Ghalba-e-Rum, Sayr-e-Zulmet and an opera Jang-e-Roos-o-Japan.[11]


He died on Nov 27, 1956, in his hometown Karamabad, near Wazirabad, Punjab.[12]
