    I read Mr. Mukhtar Masood’s Minar-e-Pakistan during Dec 1971 War in Chamb published in a Karachi magazine ‘Naqsh’. Subsequently I got the book from Oxford University Press and read it many times since, distributed over 100 copies to various colleges and schools.
    I have a review written by Mr. Abual Fazal, a renowned writer from Karachi, published in Afkar magazine in 1972. I have preserved since then and hope to present this rare piece to you personally. Let me know your address at #4 Central Avenue, Fazaia Colony, Rawalpindi.

        ناممکن ۔ وہ ‘چھوٹوں’ سے ملنا پسند نہیں کرتے

        • جی نہیں ڈاکٹر ناصر صاحب۔۔۔۔ وہ ہر طرح کے لوگوں سے ملتے رہے ہیں۔ اب بڑھاپے کی وجہ سے ملنا ملانا بہت کم ہو گیا ہے۔ میں ایک معمولی سا آدمی ہوں۔ مجھے ان سے ملاقات کا شرف حاصل ہو چکا ہے۔ اللہ پاک ان کے وقت اور عمر میں برکت عطا فرمائے۔ آجکل علی گڑھ یونیوسٹی پر ایک کتاب تحریر فرما رہے ہیں۔ اللہ کریم انھیں اسے خود شائع کرنے کی مہلت عطا فرمائیں۔ اللہ پاک انھیں آخرت میں سُرخروئی عطا فرمائیں۔
