Remembering Parveen Shakir: Tributes Flow on 29th Anniversary of the Iconic Poet’s Death

The Parveen Shakir Trust (PST) observed the 29th death anniversary of Pakistan’s iconic poet Parveen Shakir (died: Dec 26, 1994) on Tuesday.

A gathering of literary figures, colleagues, friends, and members of the Trust convened at the H-8 graveyard at 11:30 am to honor the enduring spirit and literary contributions of one of the nation’s most celebrated poets.

Parveen Shakir, born in Karachi in November 1952, received the Pride of Performance award for her outstanding contributions to literature.

Her notable works include Sad-barg, Khud Kalami, and Inkar, compiled in the book Mah-e-Tamam. She tragically lost her life in a road accident in Islamabad in 1994 at the age of forty-two.

Parveen Shakir’s literary journey encompassed several collections, with her first, Khushboo, published in 1977. Her fourth and final book, Inkaar, was published in 1990.

Additional collections, including Sadburg and Khudkalami, were released in between. Kafe-Aina, another compilation, was posthumously published in 1996, further extending her poetic legacy.

Peshawar High Court to Hear PTI’s Challenge Against ECP’s Intra-Party Poll Decision

In another development, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) challenged the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) decision regarding PTI’s intra-party elections and the withdrawal of its electoral symbol, the bat, before the Peshawar High Court (PHC).

The PHC has scheduled the petition for a hearing later in the day, with Justice Kamran Hayat presiding.

Barrister Gohar, a PTI leader, arrived at the court by 1 pm, prompting the closure of the courtroom doors to the general public due to a large gathering of PTI supporters outside.

In the petition, PTI’s lawyers urged the court to overturn the ECP’s decision to revoke the bat symbol and declare the intra-party elections null and void.

The petition argues that the ECP’s actions are “illegal and unconstitutional,” contending that the commission lacked the authority to dictate how party elections are conducted.
