    Staff Report

    KARACHI: Today marks the 22nd death anniversary of Syed Muhammad Mehdi, known as Rais Amrohvi. He was a noted scholar, Urdu poet and psychoanalyst of Pakistan. He was assassinated on September 22, 1988.

    He was born on September 12, 1914 in Amroha, India, in a notable family of scholars. Almost all the members of his family were poets. He migrated to Pakistan on October 19, 1947 and settled in Karachi.

    He was known for his unique style of Qatanigari (quatrain writing). For many decades he penned quatrains every day for Pakistan's largest daily newspaper Jang. He also supported the Urdu language and the Urdu-speaking people of Pakistan.

    He was a noted scholar, Urdu poet and psychoanalyst of Pakistan., however he can not be classified as a psychoanalyst in a traditional sense, as he looked at psychology through a spiritual perspective rather than scientific.

    He penned a number of books on metaphysics, meditation and yoga. He also tried to produce a standard Urdu translation of the Bhagavad Gita. He was assassinated on September 22, 1988, reportedly by a religious fanatic. SAMAA

  • Need anymore can be said about our tragic condition when those that are very best amongst a society-( the Poets) are killed by religious zealots.

    And with all this we are going to be the leaders of the Muslims in this world!
