He hails from a principal Arain landowning family of the Punjab, whose role in politics, in this region, preceeds the British rule in India. The family has a reputation of repelling authority and was instrumental in fighting against the Sikhs and later the British. His uncle Sardar Muhammad Hussain remained member parliement pre and post partition and pioneered the advent of Pakistan Muslim League in Central Punjab, region. His father Sardar Ahmad Ali, who also remained member parliament throughout his career, and Sardar Muhammad Hussain lead regional movements against the Unionist Party which was patronised by the British. The first mammoth public ralley for and on behalf of the Muslim League under, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, was held near his ancestral village, Ganja Kalan, at Kasur, Punjab. As a result of the partition, the family lost vast tracts of agricultural land near Satluj river, Kasur. The family is considered as the chief family of the influential Arain clan.

Sardar Asif also served as the Minister for Economic Affairs during the 1991-1993 Nawaz Sharif government, but resigned from the cabinet after developing differences with the Prime Minister. His resignation along with those of other members of parliament eventually lead to overthrow of the first Nawaz Sharif government. While serving as the Economic Affairs Minister, Sardar Asif lead numerous delegations of pakistani civil society members and organizations to Russia and cultivated valuable business and diplomatic relationship with various disintegrated States of the former USSR. He was awarded an honorary citizenship of Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.

As Foreign Minister of Pakistan, He was unanimously elected Chairman of the Organization of Islamic Conference.

In 2003 He held a painting exhibition at Lahore where he displayed some of his handdrawn sketches and paintings, which was attended by the then Prime Minister Mir Zafrulah Jamali.

I do not agree with your stance on bogus degrees. Be a true patriot and stand for justice. How would you feel if your grandchild is denied a job which is taken by a fake degree holder? It does not matter how these matters were handled in the past. Sooner or later truth and justice must prevail. You are in a position of authority and the burden of rendering justice in your department is on your shoulders. If the unscrupulous rulers or judges have committed errors in the past, it should not be an example or excuse for the future. I request you to take a stance based on what is right and just for the sake of our people, humanity and Pakistan. Thank you and Salaam Muneer M. Mirza, D.P.M; Ph.D Cleveland, Ohio
