Additional DescriptionMore Details

Qudrat Ullah Shahab (or Qudratullah Shahab; 1917– July 24 1986) (Urdu: قدرت اللہ شہاب) was an eminent Urdu writer and civil servant from Pakistan. Though he was a well known bureaucrat of Pakistan but he has written some very popular and fantastic books which have a wide readership in Pakistan and across the globe. Set at the time of Partition, Ya Khuda recounts the gut wrenching horror of migration and the pandemonium that ensued. Never before had a story teller described as vividly the horrors of our history. This story is a painful journey through the masses of decrepit humanity, sick by the nausea of nationalism, hate, lust and barbarity. This book is certainly not an incrimination of just one side of the partition boundary. But reminds us that there are beasts on both sides of the border, only the names change, sometimes its Balbir Singh and in some places its Abdul Rauf. The most painful thing the reader is reminded of is the fact that all this was true. As recounted by the millions who had gone through the morass of Muhajir camps.

About the author: Qudrat Ullah Shahab (or Qudratullah Shahab; February 26, 1917– July 24, 1986) (Urdu: قدرت الله شهاب) was an eminent Urdu writer and civil servant from Pakistan. From Jammu to Bengal, Qudratullah Shahab has seen and experienced everything and now through this book he shares that experience with us. The eminent writer boldly describes the stark truths and harsh realities about different places and events of the days gone by. The book starts on a serious note with ‘Ya Khuda’, where Shahab take us back to the gloomy days of an infant Pakistan and graphically describes the gruesome events and the sufferings faced by the migrants in those early days of settlement. ‘Dilshad’ is one such victim of migration, vividly portrayed by the author. As if conscious of the serious nature of his accounts, Shahab soon veers into classical satire with ‘Asar-e-Qadeema’ and ‘Surkh Feeta’ and brings respite to the nerves with the humorous ‘Aik Dispatch’. ‘Karachi’ is a translation from the excerpts of a Private Diary belonging to a British Soldier who landed in Karachi in 1839. The Diary was published in London in 1851.
