The memoir of one of Pakistan’s most prominent businessmen in exile

‘I reached to see not the beautiful hotel that we had so lovingly built, but a war zone. . . . We found bodies of our dear guests, colleagues, friends: faces I recognized, faces I had worked with and smiled at. The sight that stunned me was the crater-60 feet wide and 20 feet deep. It had been created by over 1000 kg of RDX. The hotel had not been attacked, it had been brutalized. Dead bodies and dismembered limbs, little pools of blood-it was a massacre. I had thought of myself as a hardened man who had seen violence and gristly sights-but what I saw that day left me shaken.’

Truth Always Prevails is the memoir of one of Pakistan’s most prominent businessmen, Sadruddin Hashwani, chairman of the internationally renowned Hashoo Group.
From sleeping in the back of trucks in the cold deserts of Balochistan to now owning a brand of luxury hotels as well as numerous other businesses, Sadruddin Hashwani has led a remarkable life. He has struggled against corrupt politicians and uncooperative government officials to build and sustain an extensive business empire. He has faced near-death experiences, most remarkably the 2008 bombing of his own hotel, the Marriott Islamabad, and has overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.
Filled with fascinating anecdotes and telling sketches of prominent Pakistani personalities, his is an extraordinary story that will inspire and entertain readers.

Sadruddin Hashwani

Sadruddin Hashwani is founder-chairman of the Hashoo Group, a leading Pakistani business conglomerate that runs the country's largest hotel operations and has interests stretching from hospitality to oil and gas exploration and production, property development and real estate, industries and commodities trading. A self-made man from a humble, middle-class background, Hashwani is among Pakistan's most eminent citizens and best-known philanthropists.
In 2014, the Award of Knight-Commander in the Order of Leopold II was conferred upon Sadruddin Hashwani by HH King Philippe of Belgium in recognition of his services to the kingdom of Belgium.
His success, Hashwani believes, has come against the odds, and is due to his strong faith and the blessings of the Almighty and his forefathers.
