Muhammad Azam Khan

Lieutenant General Muhammad Azam Khan (1908–1994) was a senior general of the Pakistan army who served under General Ayub Khan, the first military ruler of Pakistan. As a general, Khan oversaw the suppression of anti-Ahmadiyya violence following the Lahore riots of 1953, and served as the top army commander in East Pakistan before joining Ayub Khan's military regime. He served as the first commander of I Corps when it was raised on 1 July 1957 at Abbottabad (the Corps is currently stationed at Mangla since 1969) as a Lt. Gen. He also served as the Governor of East Pakistan province during the early days of martial regime of Ayub Khan. During the presidential election of 1964, Azam Khan "supported the presidential candidacy of Fatima Jinnah" and continued to work strongly against Ayub Khan until after the latter's ouster.

Lt-Gen Azam Khan also served as the President of the Pakistan Olympic Association from 16 November 1958 to 22 September 1963.
