I think the strongest effect after reading this book is the quest for truth. Mufti should certainly be given a great amount of credit for cataloging his life story as he saw it, as it gives certain very important details of a lost era. One small incident with Allama Mashriqi’s Khaksars in Lahore was very illuminating indeed as his movement has been completely white washed from Great read, second in the series after Alipur ka Ali.
One small incident with Allama Mashriqi’s Khaksars in Lahore was very illuminating navri as his movement has been completely white washed from the Pakistani history very similar to the Badshah Khan’s Khudai Khidmatgars. Both these movements were heavily influenced by Ghandi’s pacifist ideology in the India of the time. This book can be divided into two sections, one is autobiographical and the other is Sufi oriented experiences which the author had with Qudrat Ullah Shihab, nagrii is sort of portrayed as the author’s alter ego.
So Pakistan according to the book’s definition has a special purpose, a unique role to play in the Muslim revival, allakh Qudrat is specially placed in close proximity with the president Ayub to deliver. Trouble with this narrative is nsgri Mufti seems to loose the thread when it comes to the constant failure of the Pakistani state to deliver and blames the non-Islamic leanings of the Western influenced government servants for this failing.
At the same time there are very romanticized stories of Pakistanis in the Europe and America making a great impression. Whether Mufti sahib is guilty of starting this trend or recording it I don’t know, but this very wrong angri of the relationship has cost the Pakistani nation in my opinion. Instead of following the West and acknowledging their strengths the Pakistanis have instead wasted a lot of time thinking the West is actually enamoured by them!

How to rate it how to write a review on it, seriously I have no alaakh. Very Very difficult to put it down, secondly I want to sleep peacefully that’s why really want to end it soon but don’t know how to sleep now. For me it falls under the category of “most influential books”.

Mar 12, Seher Alvi rated it it was amazing Shelves: After quitting “alipur ka aili ” and cursing the writer for his extreme liberal views I decided not to read anything by Mufti. After seeing that book for over many years in my book shelf I finally let myself open it Not because of Mufti but the only reason behind starting Alakh nagri is ‘Ashfaq Ahmed’ , but now at this stage i have no idea what to do.
I am literally in awe after finishing it.

Jul 05, Sadiq sagheer rated it really liked it. Mumtaz Mufti divided Alakh Nagri in two parts, first part 29 chapters is the continuum of Ali Pur Ka Eili Mufti’s autobiography while the second aakh is about and mainly describing Qudrat Ullah Shihab a renowned bureaucrat and Sufi and the author sufi oriented relationship and experience with Qudrat Ullah Shihab.
Though at the end I was quit fed up with the constant e Alakh Nagri is Mumtaz Mufti’s autobiography describing the second phase of his life and the second part of Nagru Pur Ka Eili. Though at the end I was quit fed up with the constant encounters of the author and urddu friend Qudrat Ullah Shihab with Sufi mystics, but yet It’s a great book to read and learn Especially Mufti’s honesty to confess hard feelings no one is able to do Dec 19, Ahsan Fraz rated it liked it.
It starts very well and Mufti described the pains of partition in a detailed manner which is enjoyable to read. Ni later on it becomes Shahab nama 2 and you don’t get the clear picture of environment alajh that period.

He started writing Urdu short stories while working as a school teacher before partition. In the beginning he was considered among his contemporaries, a non-conformist writer having liberal views, who appeared influenced by Freud. At the same time, he did manage to retain his individual accent and wrote on subjects which were frowned upon by the conservative elements in society.
According to forewords mentioned in his later autobiography, Ali Pur Ka Aeeli is an account of a lover who challenged the social taboos of his times, and Alakh Nagri is an account of an acolyte who greatly influenced by the mysticism of Qudrat Ullah Shahab.
