Karachi: In a meeting held at the art’s council, renown poet and critic professor Sahar Ansari stated that Majeed Amjad holds a unique position in the literary community. He was talking at the ceremony held to celebrate the launch of the book written by Khuwaja Razi Haider, ‘Majeed Haider, A Unique Voice’ that had been scheduled for release at exactly the same time as his anniversary.
The ceremony was organized by Doctor Huma Meer, while the inauguration speech was given by Muhammad Ahmed Shah, who is the honourary secretary of the Art’s Council. Among the speakers who participated were also present Doctor Asif Farrukhi, Doctor Tahor Masood, Ehsan Saleem and Farasat Rizvi. Ajmal Siraj recited one of the poems of Amjad Majeed.
Professor Sahar Ansari stated that Amjad Majeed belonged to an era of Faiz Ahmed Faiz and Meeraji, but his works were quite distinguished from theirs, as he induced a new concept in his poetry and his poetry was unique from the others. He said that he had studied the works of Amjed Majeed and that he was soon going to write a column on him with the title, ‘Nazeer Akbar Abaadi of the new era’.
Sahar Ansari and Doctor Asif Farrukhi applauded the efforts of Khuwaja Rai Haider in compiling such a unique and complete book on the poet of the new era.
