Reference held at KU for Dr Muhammad Sabir
Karachi: Speakers at a reference held on Thursday in memory of Dr Muhammad Sabir, a professor of Turkology in the University of Karachi (KU) Islamic History Department opened their hearts and minds to pay tribute to the professor who passed away last Sunday. The reference was held at the Audio-Visual Centre of the Arts Faculty, with the hall filled to capacity a lasting testimony of the contribution and popularity of Dr Sabir.

Former chairperson of the Islamic History Department, Dr Nigar Sajjad Zaheer, spoke eloquently about her 35 year association with Dr Sabir, and said that he was a loving person and had an aura of knowledge sans any pretension that often accompanies it. She surprised the audience with the statement that the departed professor was better known in Turkey than in Pakistan, and wrote more books in Turkish than in Urdu and English put together.

Dr Shamim Akhtar, former chairperson and professor at the KU International Relations Department, narrated the friendliness, humility and comradeship of Dr Sabir, and said that he talked amicably and had a smiling face that attracted many students from many departments.

Professor Dr Muhammad Sabir completed his Master's degree from KU in 1958. He was selected by the Government of Pakistan to undertake a doctoral degree in Turkish language and literature on the scholarship of the Turkish government the same year. After completing his doctorate in Turkology in 1961, he joined the Islamic History Department at KU. He completed his PhD thesis on the Masnavi Hairat-ul-Abrar (Wonder of the Pious) of the greatest poet of the Turkish race, Mir Ali Shir Navai, who is also regarded as the literary hero of Uzbekistan.

He taught Islamic history and modern Turkish language at the KU till his retirement in 1995. During his association with the KU, he also served as the caretaker dean of the faculties of arts and commerce. He was the only Turkologist of Pakistan, and also edited the first-ever Turkish-Urdu dictionary in 1968.

Islamic History Department In Charge Dr Shakeel Siddiqui, Karachi University Teachers Society (KUTS) President Dr Abid Hasnain, Dr Faheemuddin and Dr Sabir's sons, Tughral Sabir and Captain Balban Sabir, also spoke on the occasion. The news

First humour book published
Karachi: Imtiaz Abro's book 'In a lighter vein' has been published by the Matiari district government, making the 329-page book the first book on humour in Sindhi to be printed in 15 years.

Belonging to a popular literary family, Abro has rich diction, depicting caricatures of grooms, brides, poets, writers, married men, artists, politicians, retired employees and other such characters of the society through his pen. Born to the house of renowned poet Shaukat Abro, Imtiaz was fortunate to have grown up in a literary and poetic atmosphere.

Abro, who teaches mathematics at a college, started coming writing when he was quite young. He formed a team of young artists to stage funny theatres in his home town Hala. His group later travelled to different cities as well as to various village schools and colleges to perform stage theatre.

He has received appreciation awards from different government and private organisations, while his comic poetry and songs have been hired on the local private TV channels as well. He focuses on ideas which families in traditional Sindhi society enjoy. Despite touching extremely sensitive issues, he never used his writings to be vindictive - this refinement distinguishes him from many others.

This is perhaps the reason why the Matiari district government chose to publish Abro's book first; the publication is part of the initiative undertaken by the Matiari district government to promote folk literature, art and culture and appreciating local writers.

The purpose of the government was to encourage writers whose work tended to go unpublished due to various reasons, while it was also thought that unbiased works, such as Abro's, could strengthen literary traditions in the province. Sindhi intellectuals believe that political rivalry and mistrust have destroyed the tolerant image of the land of Sufis, and works such as Abro's could spread a message of harmony.

Though there are many renowned stage artists in Sindh who win the hearts of their audiences, it was the vacuum in humorous writing that was being acutely felt. There are others who argue that the time for comic writings has long gone, Abro has proved them wrong by succeeding to create a vast readership for himself. The news
