By Sher Alam Shinwari/Statesman.com.pk
PESHAWAR: Poets, writers, fans and friends gave a book form titled Da Shuja Yadoon -the reminiscences of Shuja to their praise and appreciation they earlier had expressed to pay homage to a young advocate Shujauddin son of Prof Farmanuddin Bakhshali former chairman Pashto department, Islamia College Peshawar.
Shuja passed away on July 13, 2010 in a tragic incident after he fell down from a broken lift in a plaza located in the cantonment area, Peshawar.
The 25-year -old Shujauddin was a student of Law in the International Islamic University (IIU), Islamabad.
He was an Executive member of Bar Council of the Peshawar District Bar Association (DBA) known for his dedication and spirit to the profession and therefore, he was in good books of many senior advocates and lawyers.
He used to take active part in social and literary activities and was enjoying a good reputation in the circles of lawyer's community.
Shuja's untimely demise drew widespread showers of praise and tributes clothed both in poetry and prose from his fans, friends, teachers, senior lawyers, poets and writers which made his father Prof father Farmanuddin Bakhshali and Syed Zafarullah a young writer and friend of the late Shujauddin to jot down the praise- laden stuff into a book spreading over 121 pages. Ghulam Mohy-ud-Malik Ex-Judge Peshawar High Court /Advocate High Court and Supreme Court of Pakistan in his remarks writes, "He was like my son. I loved him and he gave me a great respect as an obedient son.
He took interest in the profession till he gave his life on July 13, 2010."
Veteran nationalist leader Mohammad Afzal Khan Lala is too among those who have praised the qualities of late Shujauddin advocate.
He says Shuja was inspired by his father's nationalistic spirit , he could gather friends around himself to educate them on Pakhtun nationalism , in a young age he took a degree in law and proved his mettle in the profession in a short span of time because he wanted to serve the down trodden masses, writes the senior politician.
Khan Lala says he had advised the late young man to do Bar- at- Law to better serve the nation.
Noted playwright and poet Noorul Bashar Naveed in his piece titled 'in the mirror of pain' pens down that he did not extend an invitation letter of his son's marriage ceremony to Prof Farmanuddin Bakhshali simply because he didn't want to see him become grieved while recalling burial of his young son.
"I didn't send you invitation on my son's wedding because I thought you would recall funeral of your late son on such happy occasion just to get grieved. I didn't want that at any cost, I don't know what name would you give to my rationale but this is how I see your pain," Naveed remarks
