Another Arts Council


As a senior member of the Arts Council of Pakistan (ACP), I was really shocked to note the press statement of comedian Omer Sharif who after facing the big defeat for the post of President in the recent elections of the council, has announced to form another Arts Council. It would have been better if he had accepted the defeat with a big heart instead of parting ways.

Mr Sharif had obtained 1064 votes whereas his opponent Ahmed Shah bagged 2001 votes. I hereby warn Mr Sharif that he should not bifurcate the prestigious Council for his personal interests as it would not be a joke but a tragedy for the nation and the arts.
