Sadat Is An Oxford Scholar

Sadat holds two master’s degrees in communications and electronic engineering from Oxford University. He worked for 23 years in the field of communications with more than 20 companies, in 13 countries, including Saudi Arabia, for Aramco and the Saudi Telecom Company.

In his over two decade experience, Sadat worked as technical advisor to Afghanistan’s communication and information technology ministry from 2005 to 2013. He also served as CEO of Ariana Telecom in London from 2016 until 2017.Truly an ideal scholar who has decorated so many positions and still chose to live humble.


Sadat’s current status surfaced as soon as Taliban plunged its roots in Afghanistan.Reacting to the developments in Afghanistan, Sadat said that he never expected the civilian government to fall so quickly.

His story will serve as a “catalyst” to change the way high-ranking people live their lives in Asia and the Arab world. Once surrounded by security personnel, Sadat is now delivering pizza on a bicycle.
