HISTORICAL INACCURACIES ABOUT DARD AND KHUDAI KHIDMAT GAR DRAMAS

Abstract

Author of this paper pen pointed mistakes committed by the researchers and writers of Pashto language about the two preliminary historical Pashto stage dramas, The Dard & The Khudai Khidmat Gar drama.
The writer argues in the light of valid proofs that the actual date of publication of the Dard drama is before March, 1931 rather 1932 and it had been confiscated on 07th of April, 1931 by the then government.
Where as, Fazal Karim is the writer of The Khudai Khidmat Gar drama on the reprinted 2012, edition. The author of the paper opines that he knew Fazal Karim personally and interviewed him in 1988. He was not a writer and was in prison in 1932. Hence he is of the view that the Khudai Khidmat Gar drama is not written by Fazal Karim and its date of publication is also not 1932 rather it would be 1931.
