Posted by Nitasha Mughal On 04:50 No comments
Ashfaq Ahmed (Urdu: اشفاق احمد) (22 August 1925 – 7 September 2004) was a writer, playwright, broadcaster, intellectual and spiritualist from Pakistan. He was regarded by many as among the finest Urdu Afsana (short-story) writers alongside Saadat Hasan Manto, Qurratulain Hyder, Prem Chand, Bedi, Mirza Adeeb, Ismat Chughtai and Krishan Chander following the publication of his short-story Gaddarya ("The Shepherd") in 1955.

Ashfaq Ahmed's humour is reflected in his long-running radio programs and characters like Talqeen Shah, while several TV drama series based on his plays are still broadcast. His TV plays include Aik muhabbat sau afsanay ("Bunch of Love Stories"), Uchhay burj Lahore dey ("Barbicans of Lahore"), Tota kahani ("Story of the Parrot"), Lekin ("But"), Hairat kadah ("Incredibility") and Mun chalay ka sauda ("Bargain of the Stubborn"). Throughout his life, Ahmad endeavoured to reform society through his writings. He authored over twenty five books including a travelogue, Safar dar safar {"Long Way Journey"). In fact, he gave a new mould to diction and locale situations which many of his readers would fondly remember. He used Punjabi literary words very well in Urdu and introduced a new kind of prose, which was unique to him. For his excellent literary work, he was awarded the President's Pride of Performance and Sitara-i-Imtiaz for meritorious services in the field of literature and broadcasting.In his later period of life, Ahmed was greatly inclined towards sufism, which was reflected in most of his works and in his close association with Qudrat Ullah Shahab and Mumtaz Mufti.
