Ashfaq Ahmed 

Life History: Ashfaq Ahmed, (August 22, 1925 –  September 7, 2004) was an intellectual, distinguished writer, playwright and broadcaster. He did his Masters in Urdu Literature from Government College, Lahore. His wife, Bano Qudsia, was his classmate at Government College. She is also a novelist.
He got a job in Radio Azad Kashmir, did a short stint of two years teaching at Dayal Singh College, Lahore and later went to Italy and joined Radio Rome as an Urdu newscaster. He also taught Urdu at Rome University. After returning to Pakistan, he published his own monthly literary magazine, Dastaango, and joined Radio Pakistan as a script writer. In 1962, he started his weekly popular radio program, Talqeen Shah which ran for three decades, the longest weekly radio show in the subcontinent. He served as director of the Markazi Urdu Board (Later renamed as Urdu Science Board). He also served as adviser in the Education Ministry during General Zia-ul-Haq’s regime.
In the 1960s, he produced a feature film, Dhoop aur Saie (“Sunshine and Shadows”), which was not very successful at the box office.
He wrote many TV drama series; which include Aik Muhabbat Sau Afsanay, Uchhay Burj Lahore Dey, Tota Kahani, Lekin, Hairat Kadah and Mun Chalay ka Sauda. He wrote over twenty five books including a travelogue, Safar Dar Safar. In his later days, Ashfaq Ahmed was greatly inclined towards sufism. His close association with Qudrat Ullah Shahab and Mumtaz Mufti was also attributed for this inclination. He appeared in television’s programs Baithak and Zawiya and gave logical answers to the audience, mostly youth, in a mystic style.
He was awarded the President’s Pride of Performance and Sitara-i-Imtiaz for his laudable services in the field of literature and broadcasting.
