ANWAR SAJJAD

LAHORE: Celebrated fiction writer Dr. Anwar Sajjad passed away here today at the age of 84.

Since NAPA had suspended his salary he had to request the government’s help for his treatment but his plea was turned down.

His hapless death in abject poverty is another manifestation of how genuine talents are treated in the land of the pure. 

Cynics go haywire wondering how the corrupts of the nation manage to get themselves and their clans treated abroad!?

A Lahoriite by birth Anwar Sajjad got his MBBS degree from King Edward Medical College.
