Badminton In Pakistan

by Abdul Rauf Liaqat
(Islamabad, Pakistan)

Every country has it’s own specialization in different types of games. Different countries support and promote different games in their country to come up with the young enthusiastic talent and compete with the other countries internationally.


Every nation has their dream to become the international winner and introduce themselves as a Champion, that is why whenever a tournament or World Championship is held, the nation becomes united and support their respective player or team in a well enthusiastic manner to back up the team. Same is the case with Pakistan.

Pakistan has good name and reputation in different games especially in Cricket, Hockey, Snooker, Squash. But unfortunately Pakistan couldn’t get through in Badminton at International level.

Some of the problems caused due to Government matters, financial support and some other crisis. The main reason of Badminton loss in Pakistan is lacking Badminton clubs and coaches.

GEO Sports | Pakistan cannot participate in World Badminton Championship August 04, 2009 :
Players of the Pakistan badminton team cannot take part in the World Badminton Championship, to be held in India, due to their demotion in world ranking.

The World Badminton Championship will be held in Indian city of Hyderabad Deccan from August 10 to 16.

Senior vice president of Pakistan Badminton Federation Syed Naqi Mohsin told Geo News that ranking of Rizwan Azam and Mohammad Ateeq in doubles was 62 while ranking of Wajid Ali in singles was 106 but these players could not participate in any international contest due to non-availability of funds for the last five months due to which their ranking fell to 170 and 250, respectively and now they have become ineligible for taking part in the World Championship.

Pakistan Badminton Federation:
Pakistan Badminton Federation was formed in 1953. Mr. Sultan F. Hussain was the first Secretary General and Nawab Mamdot first President of Pakistan Badminton Federation, participated in first Thomas Cup 1954, when it beat Sri Lanka 9-0.

Shamshad Ali, Lateef Gania, Irshad Ahmad, Menen Soares, Saeed Malik and Rustam arucha represented Pakistan. Later Prominent Pakistan Badminton players were Nazir Rajput, Akram Beg, Masood Khan, S. Naqi Mohsin, Salah ud din and Fazal Haq.
In the Ladies Elsie Hunt, Talat Sultana, Nighat Sultana, Ismat Saeed and Ghazala Wadood were prominent players having won the titles a number of times.

The golden period of Badminton was when S. Naqi Mohsin took over as Secretary General in 1973. During his period Pakistan Badminton Team put up the best ever performance in 1974 Asian Games held in Tehran, Iran. Pakistan beat Japan 3-0 and Korea 3-1 and reached the semifinals. Japan and Korea were considered Badminton Giants.

Hassan Shaheed and Javed Iqbal were sent by PBF to participate in four European International Tournaments, where they reached the quarter finals in Men's Doubles. Hassan Shaheed beat European champion in All England championships.

Tariq, Wadood, undoubtedly the best Badminton player of Pakistan was sent to peoples Republic of China with the Pakistan Badminton team. Later on Tariq Wadood reached the finals in the Badminton championship held in Beijing China in 1978.

Mr. S. Naqi Mohsin was elected Vice President, Asian Badminton Confederation and was elected member Executive Council of International Badminton Federation in 1975, the only Pakistani to achieve this distinction.

Unfortunately with the change in PBF office bearers, the tempo could not be maintained and the standard declined to such an extend that Pakistan Badminton Team slipped 120 in World Ranking.

In July 2002, the new Badminton Federation came into being with Saiyed Mohib Asad as its President and Aamer Hayat Khan Rokhri as its Secretary General.

S. Naqi Mohsin was elected as Senior vice President. It was with the combined efforts of these gentlemen, that a new spirit was infused in the game. During the short period of two years, Pakistan Badminton players were sent to participate in Eight International Tournament. Six All Pakistan Ranking, Tournament and two Nationals were held with cash prizes of over one hundred thousand rupees in each tournament.

Saiyed Mohib Asad and Aamer Hayat Khan Rokhri were elected President and Secretary General of South East Asian Badminton Federation.

Wajid Ali and Asma Butt are the current National Champions. Other prominent players are Omer Zeeshan, Ahsan Qamar, Muhammad Waqas Ahmad, Tahir Ishaque, Ashraf Masih and Rizwan Asghar Rana in Men and Ayesha Akram, Usma Butt, Farzana Saleem and Saima Manzoor in Ladies.

Ayesha Akram won Bronze medal in Ladies Singles of First Islamic countries International Tournament held in Tehran in January 2005. Rizwan Azam and Sara Khan are the National Junior Champions in Boys and Girls.

As a Pakistani and badminton lover i consider myself a bit unlucky citizen who can’t get enough to become at the upper level of badminton, who can’t fulfill his utmost desire of international Badminton player, who can just watch other players playing Badminton. At times i thought “What if i was born in China”.

About blaming politics NEW
by: Khayyamkhayyam

Well I did see hope when I was surfing the net and saw this place where I thought I get answer but I did not. Yes I know Pakistan has a lot of issues on many topics and matters. But it's not always as we can say as you have mentioned. It's the people who make the country and after visiting Pakistan the most of the people they are not honest. It's true in every country but it hurts more when it's your own. Now Pakistan has become a place where since a long time now charm has passed. As a new country Pakistan should advance as the time is moving but it's a boat sitting still in the waters rather then moving along with the tides. But Always remember this that there never was a bigger Golden Age for Pakistan or a Golden play then when Mirza Akram Baig was in it. If ever Pakistan has Hall of Fame he should be the first to be a member and his picture should be the one which gives adentety to Pakistan National Sports. God Bless Ecery Country and hoping everyone can live in piece and harmony😊

Mirza Khayyam Baig Speaks! NEW
by: KhayyamKhayyam

So on the other hand you have no clue about this greatest player to ever come to Pakistan. Ok so let me tell you all once and for all how big this man was for Pakistan Badminton Mirza Akram Baig he was the first and last player ever to beat Indian great champion T N Saith back when Badminton was Badminton. He was the one and only EVER to beat a great champion of Denmark Arnold copp. He was not only for many years the champion of champions he was extreme good looking man. One you don't see even in Hollywood or Bollywood. He was a Brother to 5 brothers and 2 sisters his dad's name was Mirza Abbas Baig. His younger brother who could have been the Greatest champion he worked and bought him his gear. His other brothers supported him and been there for him. His family always talked of his badminton achievements with high standards. He made many players top players for Pakistan. Like naki mousen saludeen Baby Adam Baig sherafgan Baig Ali year baig. Any many more. Mirza Akram Baig went to Thailand and did very well there he held the flag for Pakistan in Asian games and many other. Taraaq wadood hussan shid javead akbal and so other Pakistani champions are all together don't make half of him. Hope all young and old Pakistani and Indian badminton players will read this and keep a real idol to make there game one day as awesome and them selves good as he was. I only asked if he was alive. Why I ask because I am his brother Mirza Aslam Baig who gave me life My Father asked me to find out. My name is Mirza Khayyam Baig. God Bless Pakistan and all the world and hope badminton becomes as fine of a game in Pakistan as once it was.✌️
