Timbaktu



I always used to think Timbaktu is a fictitious name until recently when it surfaced on international news due to ransacking and burning of an ancient library which has a great treasure of Islamic manuscripts which is there for centuries and its sons protected it with their lives. Like millions relived to know that the manuscripts are safe and sound.

It was very nice on the part of Darul Musannefin Shibli Academy to write Maarif Editorial/Shizraat on Timbuktu
This is very informative and you will enjoy reading it. Thanks to Prof. Ishtiyaq Ahmad Zilli for writing this piece in the editorial of oldest Urdu surviving journal Maarif which is going to complete a century of its existence very soon.

Here is the link for Maarif which has this editorial/Shizraat;

Ahsan Raza Khan



Naved Masood*



It is a pity that the passing away of Ahsan Raza Khan has been widely reported in the context of his supposedly being a teacher of President Hamid Karzai. He deserves to be mourned and remembered for other reasons. First, to set the record straight. Khan was not the teacher of Karzai who was a student of Political Science at Shimla. Khan was a kind of mentor to Karzai who gave emotional support and provided intellectual growth to a lonely Pakhtun boy from Kandahar.
