Punjab University Institute of Urdu Language and Literature Associate Professor Dr Muhammad Naeem presented a paper entitled ‘Turkey and Turks in Urdu Prose’ which was appreciated by the participants.
He showed by analysing different texts of fictional and non-fictional prose that in Urdu, moral and aesthetic standards were derived from Turkey and the Turks. Moreover, in the context of international politics of the last two centuries, various aspects of the cultural and national relations of the two countries have been finding a place in Urdu prose.
