Ahmad Faraz

Ahmad Faraz (Urdu: احمد فراز) was a poet and writer from Pakistan. He is considered one of the great modern Urdu poets of the last century. Faraz is his pseudonym or 'takhalus'.

Faraz, who has been compared with Faiz Ahmad Faiz, holds a unique position as one of the best poets of current times, with a simplicity to his style of writing. Faraz studied Persian and Urdu at the Peshawar University and later began to teach there.

Outspoken about politics, he went into self-imposed exile during the Zia-ul-Haq era after he was arrested for reciting certain poems at a Mushaira criticizing the military rule. He stayed for 6 years in Britain, Canada and Europe before returning to Pakistan, where he was initially appointed Chairman Academy of Letters and later chairperson of the Islamabad-based National Book Foundation for several years.

He was awarded the Hilal-e-Imtiaz in 2004, in recognition of his literary achievements. He returned the award in 2006 after becoming disenchanted with the Pakistani government and its policies.
