Very well, then, after this series about Rashid Minhas, we can also discuss an author who lived in Karachi, wrote patriotic stories and modeled his hero after Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah but had millions of fans not only in Pakistan but also in India, where his work was also translated into Hindi. Here, his readers included President Ayub Khan, while in India his book launch was presided over by Lal Bahadur Shastri.
This was discussed in a previous post and will be repeated soon, but right now, can we consider this question:
- Why do we consistently fail to recognize those aspects of our greatness which are without a parallel anywhere else in the world?
On a different note, those interested in the poetry of Perveen Shakir may like to read the poem she wrote about Rashid Minhas in 1971 (it’s in Urdu).
