اردو کہانی کی تاریخ میں دوسرا منٹو ابھی تک پیدا نہیں ہوا۔ کیونکہ سب سے زیادہ اسی کو پڑھا گیا اور سب سے زیادہ اسی کو کوسا گیا۔ دراصل ہماری معاشرتی تحریمات کے ساتھ المیہ یہ پیش آیا ہے کہ یہ تضادات اور منافقت کی بنیادوں پر استوار ہوئی ہیں۔ نظری اور تصوری سطح پر بلند معیاری اور اخلاقی ترفع کا دعوی مگر عملی طور پر بداعمالیوں کی انتہا کا مظاہرہ!۔۔۔ یہ تضاد ہمارے سماج کی گھٹی میں ...more
