A well wisher or you could say a person who is concerned about the safety and security of the writer goes like this, „Thank you dear Muhammad Hanif for your courage and excellent presentation. If you need to establish personal security, I would like to make financial contribution to a fund or trust for that.”
Just watch the short video of 9 minutes and decide yourself what Mohammad Hanif has said that above lines had to be written.
Okara born Mohammad Hanif’s first novel A Case of Exploding Mangoes (2008) was shortlisted for the 2008 Guardian First Book Award and long listed for the 2008 Man Booker Prize. It won the 2009 Commonwealth Book Prize in the Best First Book category and the 2008 Shakti Bhatt First Book Prize. He graduated from Pakistan Air Force Academy as a pilot officer, but subsequently left to pursue a career in journalism.
