Late journalist Mushir Anwer remembered
ISLAMABAD: Stephen Hawking’s quote “Quite people have the loudest minds,” precisely represent Mushir Anwar’s life and personality, says Ashfaq Saleem Mirza, Member, Council of Social Sciences, NML reported.
Speaking at the memorial reference to pay tributes to the late Journalist, Mushir Anwar, organized by SDPI, Monday, he said, his silent relationship with his wife was an example of his sincere and loving personality. He was famous among his friends as Buddha for his quite nature.
Poet and writer, Harris Khalique says, Mushir would teach an ignorant person without making him realize his ignorance. And that was his humble self-effacing personality. Harris recited his poem “Ishaiq Ki Takmeel,” a dialogue in verses between him and Mushir.
Secretary General of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, I A Rehman says, he was a man of wisdom, who was expert in writing very briefly and concisely.
He had clear understanding of world, and was a good adviser. He would always share his happiness with others, and confine his worries to himself only.
We should preserve his writing and work, least it should be wasted.
Poet and writer, Kishwar Nahed says, he was a good editor, who could improve research and other such writings to a readable leave. He is gone and we feel that relationships are not only physical, but spiritual as well.
Dr. Parvaiz Tahir, while relating Mushir’s life work said, calm and sincere, he would rumble through all comments good or critical, with ease.
His relationship with his wife was exemplary. After her death, he could not survive for long.
Mushir Anwar’s son, Khayyam Mushir said, he was inclusive, secular, caring and an expensive person. He would teach about social norms, but he would never like to be projected personally. He was passionate about literature, writing and cinema.
Earlier, Executive Director, SDPI, Dr. Abid Q Suleri, said, sustainable society is one of the parameter in determining sustainable development. And, sustainable society develops on building blocks, like Mushir Anwar. He was a man of letters, who contributed to the very society, he was a product of.
