PMA’s Faiz mushaira – photos 1983

Dr Sarwar was General Secretary of the Pakistan Medical Association when they held a ‘mushaira’  in 1983 to honour the progressive poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz whose poetry was anathema to the military regime of Gen. Ziaul Haq. In these photos, Dr Sarwar, Dr Badar Siddiqi and Dr Tipu Sultan sit on the dias along with Faiz Sahib, all of them clearly enjoying themselves.
