Born in India, Ahmad's family went to Pakistan during partition; he was later active in the Algerian resistance movement. In 1971, while a fellow at the Adlai Stevenson Institute in Chicago, he was charged as one of the Harrisburg Eight, alleged to have hatched a plot to kidnap Henry Kissinger. Two months after this talk the charges fell apart in a mistrial. After years of teaching, he returned to Pakistan where he died in 1999.
