Hamdard is one of those most successful enterprises in South Asia that have trivial origins and very modest beginning, but within a short span of time they achieved the status of big business houses. Established first by an accomplished pharmacist and physician of Tibb-i-Unani, Hakim Hafiz Abdul Majeed in a tiny shop in Delhi, India in 1906 and then in Karachi, after the creation of Pakistan, by his younger son and a visionary physician, Hakim Mohammed Said in a two–room rented clinic of Tibb-i-Unani (Eastern Medicine), Hamdard made rapid progress, and within a short period its star products, especially Rooh Afza syrup, and effective herbal medicines become popular from end to end in the country and Hamdard became a household name in Pakistan.
