Profile
Ansar Abbasi was born in Murree June 12, 1965 (age 45) and did his early education in his native village.

Education
Abbasi did his matriculation at Sir Syed School Rawalpindi. He then joined Government College Asghar Mall from where he completed his Intermediate and later graduated with a ‘Bachelors in Arts’ degree from the same college. He did his Masters at Balochistan University, Quetta. He later earned another Masters degree from Goldsmiths College, University of London.His research thesis was on child labor.

His family:
When his father died Ansar was in Matric. His father used to do business in the wheat market and during the days of food rashioning in the 1970s the contract of distribution in Murree was with him. The deceased also had an interest in the property business.

Career in journalism
After Masters in Mass Communication, Abbasi started his career as a professional journalist in 1991.

The Democrat
His first stint was with an English language daily, The Democrat.

Pakistan Times

Later, he worked for two months at Pakistan Times.

The News International

After Paksitan times Abbasi Join The News International, of which he is now an editor. Now he is an investigative editor for one of the leading newspapers from Pakistan, The News International

English Journalism
He regards English Journalism better than Urdu, as he feels that mostly an Urdu Journalist does nothing but dealing with Statement Journalism. His own experience tells him that English Journalism in Pakistan gives a journalist more growth opportunities and more chances to learn. He feels good that he landed in English Journalism from the very start.

Experiences Abroad:
While pursuing his Masters degree from the United Kingdom, he learnt a great deal from his School and from the exposure otherwise as well. He believes that he learnt more from travelling and visiting places than what he did from the curriculum at school. He acknowledges the system of education and research over there and finds the standards of labs and libraries really up to the mark. He feels a dire need that the authorities look into the dilapidated state of government universities in Pakistan and to equip them with what the student of today needs.

His research thesis there included one on ‘Child Labor’ and for that particular one he found more than enough data on it, more than what he would have ever dreamt of in any university’s library in Pakistan; given that Pakistan is a developing country and faces the menace of Child Labor to an much more alarming extent as compared to the UK.

Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry
Ansar Abbasi was among the first to bring forth allegations against Chief Justice Iftikhar Choudhray for gross misconduct in 2002, accusing him for admitting his Son Dr. Arsalan to FIA undermining all merits.Primarily based on this allegation the establishment moved a reference to Supreme Judicial Council against Chief Justice Iftikhar Choudhry.

Pervez Musharraf

Maulana Fazl ur Rehman
In November 2008, Abbasi published a story on the award of acres of military land worth millions of rupees to the family members of the leader of JUI Maulana Fazl ur Rehman. Abbasi alleged that the regime of the then president General Pervez Musharraf attempted to buy off Maulana's opposition to the General's assumption of two public offices at a time. The issue was silenced when Maulana Fazl ur Rahman publicly questioned how the multi-billion empire of Geo/Jang Group grew from a single room.
