Late Makhdoomzada Syed Hassan Mahmood, the Chief Minister of the Princely State of Bahawalpur conceived the idea of a premier ‘Public School’ at Bahawalpur in 1950's. His Highness, The Ameer of Bahawalpur, Nawab Sir Sadiq Muhammad Khan Abbasi V laid the foundation stone of Sadiq Public School on 4th March 1953 and the senior school building was completed within a short space of nine mouths. Sadiq opened up its warm heart on the chilly morning of 18th January 1954 with only 37 students. ln order to commemorate this occasion, a Grand Darbar was organized in the same month by the school administration. His Highness, The Ameer of Bahawalpur, Nawab Sir Sadiq Muhammad Khan Abbasi V graced the occasion along with Makhdoomzada Syed Hassan Mahmood. Miss Salma Mahmood, the ﬁrst girl student of the school presented a bouquet to His Highness and welcoming address was read by founding Principal Khan Anwar Sikandar Khan.
Fifty years later in 2004, we celebrated the Golden Jubilee of this leading Public School in Pakistan. The Organizing Committee for the Golden Jubilee ceremony was led by Dr. Raheal Ahmad Siddiqui who played an instrumental role in developing a nationwide team of Old Sadiqians to arrange a memorable First Grand Annual Reunion. The team comprised Maj Munir Ahmad, Rao Ehsaan-ur-Rehman (late), Maj Tanveer (late), Qazi Jan Muhammad, Dr Khawar, Dr Noorullah Qamar, Mansoor Habib, Saud Majeed, Mian Baligh-ur-Rehman, Abbas Munawar, Amir Yousuf, Atif Aziz, Mohsin Raza, Salman Mahmood Qureshi and Muhammad Ali Zamir.
