Qasimi, Ahmad Nadeem
▪ 2007
Peerzada Ahmad Shah Nadeem Qasimi 
      Pakistani writer and journalist (b. Nov. 20, 1916, Angah, British India [now in Pakistan]—d. July 10, 2006, Lahore, Pak.), was a significant figure in Urdu-language literature for more than 60 years, producing scores of short stories and a dozen poetry collections, beginning with Chaupaa! (1939). He also wrote criticism and edited several literary magazines. As a longtime member of the Progressive Writers Association, he came into conflict with the Pakistani authorities and was jailed at least twice as a possible subversive. Although little of Qasimi's tremendous output was translated into English, two collections of translations appeared late in his career, The Old Banyan and Other Stories (2000) and Selected Poems of Ahmad Nadeem Qasimi: Urdu-English (2004).
