I feel really privileged to write about Molvi Abdul Haq (16 November, 1872- 16 August, 1961) as he was the real promoter of Urdu language and its literature. He was the first to introduce Dakni literature among the discerning class of Urdu language and literature unearthing its many rare manuscripts from the archives that remained unattended for centuries. A time when Urdu readers knew Wali Dakni being the only poet of Urdu from Dakan and Muhammed Hussain Azad also reckoned him to be the first poet of Urdu in his magnum opus Abe-Hayat. Before the pioneering research of Molvi Abdul Haq in Dakni literature, poets and prose writers of its kind of Urdu remained unknown. It was Molvi Abdul Haq who worked hard to make Dakni literature familiar to the masses and enriched Urdu language. He edited many rare manuscripts such as Meraajul Ashqeen (1924), Zikr-e-Mir (1928), Bagh-o-Bahar, (1931), Sab Ras (1932), Nikat-u-Shoara (1935), Nusrati (1938), Qutub Mushtari, (1939) and many more. Albeit Abdul Jabbar Khan Malka Puri in his Tazkira-e-Shoara in (1912) introduced many poets from Dakan declaring that Sultan Muhammed Quli Qutub Shah and Sultan Abdullah had produced poetry almost one and half century earlier than the poets from Dehli, many luminaries of Urdu literature particularly from Dehli did not know this.Molvi Abdul Haq was also a critic, linguist, lexicographer, editor, compiler, translator, etymologist, biographer and grammarian. His entire life can well be attributed to making Urdu the national language of Pakistan. Owing to his hard work, Urdu language has developed enough to provide equivalents in many fields of knowledge such as medical sciences, arts, computer, environment studies, business, mathematics, accounting, economics and others. I want to draw the attention of the people of Pakistan to use our national language as many developed nations do. The youngsters must avoid unnecessary use of English words in their routine conversation and ought to stand by the spirit of Molvi Abdul Haq, who spent his entire life for the promotion of Urdu language and its literature because every language has its origin immersed in its traditions.JAWED AHMED KHURSHEED Karachi, August 15
