GCU publishes six books
Lahore: The Government College University has published six books on noted poet Noon Meem Rashid on his centennial birth anniversary. The books were launched at the day-long national seminar at GCU's Bokhari Auditorium highlighting the literary, critical and intellectual Rashid who is acknowledged as the pioneer of modern free verse in Urdu.

A large number of prominent literati of the country attended the seminar held on Wednesday, which was chaired by GCU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Khalid Aftab. Two of the books 'Rashid Aur Saqafati Mughairut (Rashid and cultural alienation) and Rashid Baqalam Khud (Rashid's autobiography) were written by noted Urdu critic and distinguished academic Prof Dr Saadat Saeed, Department of Urdu, GCU.

The other four books; Rashid Ravi Mein, Bayaz-e-Rashid, Mazharyati Mutalah, Naqd-e-Rashid and Intikhab Nazm-e-Rashid were also compiled by Prof Dr Saadat Saeed along with Nasreen Anjum Bhatti and Muhammad Rafique.

Delivering the key note address, noted Urdu critic Prof Fateh Muhammad Malik lamented that the realm of Urdu scholarship has miserably failed to pay befitting homage to Rashid's poetic prowess despite innumerable efforts.

GCU VC Dr Khalid Aftab opined that the concept of modern man as it appears in Rashid's verse is reflective of universal values. Rashid paved way for the creation of an egalitarian society where man is recognised for his essence and not on the basis of his creed.

The VC attributed the emergence of such literary luminaries as Rashid to the fertile cultural milieu of the historic Government College.

Intizar Hussain praised Rashid for having addressed intricate issues of human cerebrum in his innovative verse forms.

Addressing the seminar, Prof Dr Saadat Saeed said that Rashid was firmly rooted in the ethical, political and religious values of human polity.

GCU Urdu Department Chairperson Dr Shafiq Ajmi thanked Rashid's daughter Nasreen Rashid who compiled Rashid's epistles addressed to his first wife. This, according to Dr Ajmi, will pave way for the critics to have a renewed insight into Rashid's psyche.

Dr Tariq Zaidi, adviser Majlis-e-Iqbal, said that Rashid was inspired by Nietzsche, Iqbal and Allama Mashriqi. Dr Tabbassum Kashmiri, Dr Fakhar-ul-Haq Noori, Dr Zia-ul-Hassan and others presented their articles on Rashid's life and works at the closing session of the seminar chaired by Prof Dr Rasheed Amjad.
