“My wife asked Junaid Bhai, you travel a lot, do you give time to your children, don’t they complain about it. He replied that this is the trajectory of my life, I have a lot of work to do and have limited time,” reminisced Khalid, Junaid Jamshed’s friend. (at 30:50 in the video below).

“We heard that he used to say I would live till 52 years maximum,” said Faisal Qureshi. (29:35 in the video)
Junaid Jamshed’s son Taimur Junaid told host Faisal Qureshi that though he knew that people seldom survive a plane crash, it was difficult for him to believe if it had really happened.
“We were finding excuses that who knows if he had missed his flight, he would have jumped from the plane before the crash,” said Taimur remembering December 7 when his father died in the plane crash.
He added that his mother wanted to leave for Islamabad after hearing the news of the plane crash but he stopped her.
About how he brought up him and his siblings, Taimur Junaid claimed that Junaid Jamshed was a very loving father and never forced his children for anything.
“I don’t remember if he ever scolded me, he used to explain everything with affection,” said Taimur Junaid, adding that he only emphasised on offering prayers on time.
