On the birthday of Hakim Said, we bring you the history of Rooh Afza. Rooh Afza was first produced by Hamdard’s founder Hakim Hafiz Abdul Majeed. In 1906, he wanted to create a herbal mix that would help Delhi’s people stay cool in the summer. Following the Partition of India in 1947, Hakim Hafiz Majeed’s younger son, Hakeem Muhammad Said migrated to Pakistan and started a separate Hamdard Company in two rooms in Karachi.
