Abstract

In 1936, some prominent literary figures of the time launched “Anjuman-e-Taraqi” Passand Tahreek. These progressive minded figures including Syed Sajjad Zaheer, Dr. Malik Raj Anand, Dr. Jyoti Parsad, Permod Sen Gupta and Dr. Taseer were among the pioneers of this movement, inspired by secularism, socialism, communism and Marxism. Majority members of the movement were Hindus. Though a few Muslim writers were also part of this bunch. The literature they created/ developed was a reflection of vulgarity, secularism and an open revolt against the established values of the United India.

Their joint literary venture titled “Angaray” stirred the whole society to the extent that it was even banned by the then English government over the charges of containing objectionable material, obscenity and blunt views against the religious and social values. Religious colour became dominantly visible in the writing/ works of the great fiction writes of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa once this secular-inspired movement entered this land of hospitality. The local fiction writes highlighted the sanctity of the religion so artistically in their art works that it vanished the impacts of secularism and communism established under this movement. Taking pride in his rich traditions with confidence in his creative artistic abilities, though the fiction writer of KP warmly welcomes the external movements yet he does not pollute his literary spirit with the external negative effects. As a matter of fact, he makes necessary amendments in his literary work for producing positive effects on the society.
