“We have no reservations against anyone and those who spoke against as a part of election campaign should now give up their opposition as they were our friends and we all should work for the betterment of members of the Arts Council. Instead of opposing each other, we should work together in the larger interest of members of Arts Council and for the cause of promotion of arts, theatre, and culture”.
The views were expressed by the newly-elected President of the Arts Council, Muhammad Ahmed Shah, at a function celebrating victory (called ‘Yaum-e-Tashakur’). He urged the opponent group called ‘Shehre Quaid Panel’ representatives Omar Sharif and others to come forward and work together for the advancement of the members of Arts Council. He further noted that he would welcome all suggestions made by Omar Sharif and other friends.
The newly-elected office-bearers and members of governing body including Prof Ejaz Faroqui, Vice-President Mehmood Ahmed Khan, Joint Secretary Muhammad Amin Yousuf, Treasurer Dr Huma Mir, and the members of the governing body, Fatima Surraiya Bajia, Prof Sahar Ansari, Qudsia Akbar, and others also spoke and paid rich tributes to the President, Muhammad Ahmed Shah, saying that he was a man who made great efforts to make the Arts Council a real centre of arts and culture and always played a key role in organising International Urdu Conferences and collected huge funds for the advancement of Arts Council and welfare of members of Arts Council.
