in Pride of Pakistan


Writing is a very diverse field, and writers all over the world have expressed their selves via different means, and languages. Writers here in Pakistan have also dominated this field, with their very breath taking stories and informative books. Ashfaq Ahmed’s famous book Zawiya which was published in parts was an amazing one. Umera Ahmed has been providing us with her marvelous work. The writers here in Pakistan have not only written in Urdu but English as well.  Tehmina Durrani with her excellent piece of work has given us very good books like Blasphemy, my feudal lord, a mirror to the blind which is an autobiography of Sir Abdul Sattar Edhi. Another very famous writer, without which Pakistan’s writing industry is incomplete, is Bano Qudsia who has written very good novels and are read by millions all over Pakistan. Other famous writers are Ahmed Faraz (Poet), Anwar Maqsood, Umera Ahmed, and many more.

Following is the list of famous writers of Pakistan

  • Ashfaq Ahmed
  • Bano Qudsia
  • Mustansar Hussain Tarar
  • Qudrutullah Shahab
  • Ibn-e-Insha
  • Anwar Maqsood
  • Quratulain Haider
  • Ahmad Shah Bokhari
  • Mushtaq Yusfi
  • Naseem Hijazi

In all honesty, a list of ten writers is not enough to express the quality of literary art Pakistan has. Many major names like Ahmed Nadeem Qasmi, Saadat Hasan Manto and Mashkkor Hussain Yad have written a lot. A list of ten cannot justify the richness of literary scene in Pakistan.
