ABOUT:

Mumtaz Mufti was a renowned literary figure of Pakistan and a contemporary of intellectuals like Ashfaq Ahmed and Qudratullah Shahab. Starting his career as a civil servant under the British Rule, his family migrated to Pakistan soon after independence.

While working as a civil servant, Mumtaz Mufti discovered his flair as a writer and started writing short stories. His writings depict the transformations he went through as a person over the years. That transformation can be seen in his autobiographies 'Ali Pur Ka Aeeili' and 'Alakh Nagri', which talk about his life as a non-believer and then his inclination towards spirituality.

His book 'Talaash' summarizes the changes he embraced in life and how they made an impact on him as a person. For his contributions to Urdu literature, he was awarded the Sitara-e-Imtiaz by the government of Pakistan in 1986 and the Munshi Premchand Award in 1989.
