Islamabad : The President of the country will put the final stamp on the name of the new army chief of Pakistan. The President of Pakistan Dr. Arif Alvi is playing the most important role in this whole process. Very few people know about the ‘India Connection’ of Arif Alvi, the first citizen of Pakistan. According to a short biography of Alvi on the website of Imran Khan’s political party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), his father was the dentist of India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

According to information available on the internet, his father was Pandit Nehru’s dentist. After partition, his family had migrated from India to Pakistan. The family of Alvi’s ancestor Mamnoon Hussain had migrated from Agra. Just like the parents of Pervez Musharraf left from New Delhi.

He was born in 1947 in Karachi, where his father had settled after partition.

Profession of dentist inherited from father
Alvi’s father used to practice as a dentist in India and then in Karachi before partition. Apart from politics, Arif Alvi inherited the profession of dentist from his father. He has obtained his degrees from Lahore and America. In 2007, he was elected as a counselor of the FDI World Dental Federation. This was the first selection of a Pakistani for this post.
