He is the creator of the cartoon, the first animated series ever produced wholly in the country.

Burka Avenger is a mild-mannered school teacher who is fighting against thugs, who represent the Taliban, who are intent upon closing down the school where she teaches. She actually is Jiya, who also is trained in a fighting style called Takht Kabaddi, taught by her adopted father, using pens and books to attack. The character was created to send positive messages to the youth in the country.

The trailers are available on their website which are in Urdu and English, though it is now yet known where the English version will be aired. "Don't mess with the lady in black" goes the title track with some amazing music by artists like Ali Zafar and Ali Azmat and a good quality picture.

The whole series has been developed by a team of 22 people operating out of an office in Islamabad in a span of just a year.
