The “Yusufi Book Corner” has been inaugurated at the Arts Council of Pakistan, Karachi by Sindh Culture and Education Minister Syed Sardar Ali Shah.

The book corner has been named after the late Mushtaq Ahmad Yousufi. The renowned Urdu satirist and humor writer had passed away in 2018 at the age of 94. Since then, his collection of over 8,500 books and audio tapes has also been acquired by the Josh Malihabadi library at the Arts Council.

After inaugurating the Arts Council’s first ever ‘book corner,’ the Culture Minister said that the arts council is taking great initiatives to promote reading and literature among young people.

He said he was “delighted” to inaugurate the book corner named after Pakistan’s greatest humorist and added that libraries play a crucial role in a society’s intellectual development.
