The last post mentioned some great sacrifices which enriched humanity. I have been asked to explain the references: Jesus Christ, Imam Husain and Mansur Hallaj. I shall do that soon.
Today, I am sharing some poems which were written in Urdu soon after the incident of Rashid Minhas. I have selections from 20 poets including stalwarts like Shorish Kashmiri, Sehba Akhtar, Rana Akbarabadi (father of renowned musician Sohail Rana), Parveen Shakir (already shared) and Aslam Kamal (best known for making illustrations in Nuskha haye Wafa).
- Why these poems are never mentioned in the histories of Urdu literature?
- Why they are not included in textbooks in Pakistan?
- Why nobody heard about them after those days?
