Famous Urdu Poet Faiz Ahmad Faiz died

Faiz Ahmad Faiz was born to a landed, educated family in Sialkot of pre-partition Punjab on February 13, 1911. He grew up surrounded by literature with a father who was a friend to many writers, including Muhammad Iqbal. His schooling took him to Lahore where he studied Arabic and English literature. His literary studies laid the foundation for him to create a modern Urdu verse that took on larger social and political issues of his times yet retained the polished style and diction of the ghazal. His death in 1984 was a loss to the Urdu literary world.
