Sufism has become the last hope for promoting tolerance, harmony and brotherhood among the worldly nations. Mystics have used their poetry promoting the human loving values among the masses of the South Asia. Punjabi poets like Mian Muhammad Bukhsh, Buleh Shah and Guru Nanak have disseminated the human loving libertarian values among the people of Punjab. These Sufis awakened the messes against the undemocratic and fascist forces in the Indo-Pak subcontinent. Literature of Punjabi Sufi poets preserves rich ethical values in their message. It is need of the hour to trace the socio-psychological meanings of their poetry. The Centre for History, Political Science and International Relations at the Hafiz Hayat Campus will cooperate with the Gujrat based society for the uplift for the culture and heritage to explore more avenues of research in the Punjabi literature. These remarks were passed by the Vice Chancellor University of Gujrat Prof Dr Muhammad Nizamuddin while presiding over the first session of the seminar on the 104th anniversary of Punjabi Sufi poet Mian Muhammad Bukhsh at Hafiz Hayat Campus, the University of Gujrat.
The seminar was organized by the Center for History, International Relations and Political Science (CHIP) at Hafiz Hayat Campus with the collaboration of Society for Uplift of Cultural & Heritage (SUCH). The second session was arranged on the musical presentation of the “Saif-ul-Malook”, a landmark compilation of the Sufi poet.
