Sulemaan Taseer is of Anglo-Indian ancestry, being of Kashmiri descent on his father’s side and of English descent on his mother’s side.
He was born on 31 May 1944, in Simla, East Punjab, British India, of a family hailing from Amritsar. His father was Muhammad Din Taseer, known as M. D. Taseer, who was born in Ajnala Amritsar, and was a professor at Mohammedan Anglo-Oriental College, Amritsar, having obtained his PhD in the United Kingdom; and Taseer’s mother was Bilqis (Christobel) née George.
In 1950 M. D. Taseer died aged 47, when Taseer was six, and Taseer and his two sisters were brought up by their mother, in relative poverty.

Taseer also had a son, Aatish, in 1980 with Indian journalist Tavleen Singh. Though married at the time,Tavleen was from Sikh family. Taseer met Singh during a book promotion trip to India in March 1980. According to Aatish, their “affair lasted little more than a week.” Aatish is a freelance journalist in the UK and has written a book Stranger to History: A Son’s Journey through Islamic Lands about his estranged relationship with his biological father.
In the early 1980s, Taseer had a year-long affair with Bollywood actress Simi Garewal.
Taseer was known to be one of the trusted aides of Benazir Bhutto He was a classmate of Nawaz Sharif at St. Anthony’s School in Lahore, and had obtained a degree in Chartered Accountancy from London.
Taseer started his political career in his student era, as a member of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in the late 1960s. He was a part of the movement for Bhutto’s freedom and opposed his arrest and death sentence. He also wrote a political biography on Bhutto titled Bhutto: A political biography (1980).
In the 1988 general elections, Taseer became a member of the Punjab Assembly from Lahore. In the 1990, 1993 and 1997 general elections, he stood for election to be an MNA but lost.
In 2007, he was appointed the interim Federal Minister for Industries, Production and Special Initiatives.
On 15 May 2008, Taseer was designated for the office of Governor of Punjab by the PPP-led coalition government.
In December 2010 Taseer was alleged to have left the country for several days without handing over charge to the Punjab Assembly Speaker. This meant that the province was without a constitutional head, and it also rendered the assembly speaker ineligible to preside over sessions. Leaving the province without informing his successor was in violation of the constitution and this led to Punjab Assembly Speaker Rana Muhammad Iqbal sending a letter to Prime Minister Gilani calling for the removal of Salmaan Taseer by the President. Evidence provided by ICAO on the governor’s travel abroad, led to a case being filed in court for breach of the constitution.
