  Effects of 9/11 on Urdu Fiction  

“ “Urdu fiction got seriously affected in 1947, 1958, 1971, 1979 and 1991 in wake of the national and international developments and the topics like separation, agonies of migration, dictatorship, struggle for democracy, national integration and radicalism got priority in the fiction, especially in the text, no matter the diction fulfils the principles of act standards of technique”, said Prof. Zubair Ahmad Shah in a lecture at Research Library Peshawar. “The 9/11 changed the meaning of religion, friendship, jihad, terrorism, conversion, sovereignty, Islamic history, humanity, cruelty against prisoners, international relations and a huge confusion is created in the minds of thinkers and general public”, he said “The paid NGOs and think-tanks deliberately contributed to this intellectual frustration and ambivalence, however, the Urdu fiction-writer has described the situation with full impartiality and honesty of intention, the speaker stated with examples from different Urdu fiction literature. “The various propaganda associated with the 9/11, war-on-terror, laws of migration, oil, Israel survival, power politics, resistance to foreign occupation, attacks on Afghanistan, drones on FATA, invasion identity crisis, suicide bombing and terrorist organization and the mis-use of national and international media by nested-interests of either side have baggage the minds of youngster and truth has to be searched by the value-free writers of creative literature and evaluated by critical reviewers. Founder of the Library, Fasihuddin said that Hillary Clinton in her recent book ‘Hard Choices’ has stated that the 21s Century due to 9/11 attacks, the subsequent prolong wars and economic recession, however, our writers are not responding properly to the everyday 9/11 traumas in this region. Ex-Federal Secretary Habibullah Khan was the Chief Guest who said, “9/11 is like theories of Newton and Einstein which were mere theories but which changed the whole world and all sciences, so 9/11 will keep its effects on the coming generation and the direction of future social movements throughout the world”. “9/11 has some positive implications for us to re-visit ourselves, our history, our way of working and thinking, and it is time to work for the damage containment of 9/11 effects in this part of the world”, he observed. “Our writers have not deal 9/11 as a physical event but have seen it from a meta-physical angle too which is more important for pashtoons, Pakistani and then the Muslims”, he said, The session was presided by well-known fiction writer and coloumnist Prof. Khalid Sohail Malik who reviewed the lecture given by the main speaker. The seminar was conducted by Prof. Ishaq Wardag and the session was followed by a brain-storming session on fear, privacy, and fatalism.
