'My earliest recollection of Baba Ji (Zafrullah Khan) dates back to 1924. I was approximately three years old, when, at Baba Ji's(Zafrullah Khan's) request, my father took me to his house. Baba Ji offered me some sweetmeats which I declined. The offer was repeated at least twice. Then, he held my right hand in his own and brought it close to the dish of sweetmeats. I clenched my fist. With some considerable surprise, he asked if I did not like sweets. I said I did, but my mother had told me never to eat anything in anyone else's house. Baba Ji(Zafrullah Khan) assured me that his house was also my house. Unable to grasp the meaning of this statement, I looked towards my father, who nodded his accord. As I have always had a healthy appetite, I enjoyed eating a fair amount from all the dishes lavishly laid on the table.' "Zafrulla Khan -My Mentor (Anwar Kahlon), pp. 6
'One of the closest friends of Sir Zafrullah Khan was Sheikh Ijaz Ahmad, also a nephew of the philosopher-poet of Pakistan, Muhammad Allama Iqbal and was introduced to Zafrullah Khan when he joined the Law College in Lahore. As he seemed to be in need of assistance in his studies, Zafrullah Khan invited him to stay with him in his house. Their friendship grew strong over the years and continued throughout his lifetime.' Zafrulla Khan -My Mentor (Anwar Kahlon), pp1.
'Once, before the official result of the Intermediate examination was declared, a friend of the family told Zafrullah Khan's father that he Zafrullah had passed and also intimated the marks he had secured. Sir Zafrullah Khan was summoned and asked whether this would place him in the first or second division. He told his father that he had been placed in the second division, and that his marks were only a few more than the threshold. With obvious disappointment, his father said to him, "Then with great difficulty, you have just managed to scrape through to the Second Division." A few days later, when the official result was declared, Sir Khan found out that though still in the second division, he had missed the first division by only a few marks. Somewhat relieved, he conveyed this news to his father. His father said, "What is the difference; you are still in the second division."Sir Khan replied, "The difference is, that NOW I have been squarely placed in the second division, and have not just scraped through." His father did not seem amused, but realized that is was difficult to win an argument with his eldest son.' Zafrulla Khan -My Mentor (Anwar Kahlon), pp1.
'After having passed his LL.B. from London University, and having been called to the Bar at Lincoln's Inn in 1914, Zafrullah Khan started his Law practice at the District Courts in Sialkot, as his father's understudy. In those days in the British Indian Courts, even a green and fresh Law Graduate or Barrister from England, was considered senior to the most experienced Lawyer or Advocate who did not any British qualifications. While Zafrullah Khan was his father's understudy, one of his father's colleagues jokingly referred to him as his father's "senior". His father, somewhat firmly said, "I am the senior." Of course, the issue had never been contested by the son.' Zafrulla Khan -My Mentor (Anwar Kahlon), pp.4
