University of Peshawar Opens Division of Persian literary books
The Pakistan Study Center at the University of Peshawar has dedicated a division to Persian literary books, in particular, works by Persian poet Sadi and publications about his works.
The Sadi Shirazi Corner provides interested readers with a number of books on Persian poetry and literature, the Iranian Embassy in Pakistan announced on Thursday.
The director general of Iran’s Cultural Center in Islamabad, Ali Yusefi, and the director of the center, Fakhr-ul-Islam, attended the opening ceremony on Wednesday.
Sheikh Muslih od-Din Sadi Shirazi (C. 1213-1291) is one of the greatest figures of classical Persian literature, famous worldwide for his Bustan (The Orchard) and Gulistan (The Rose Garden).
Earlier in October 2016, the National Book Foundation in Islamabad also dedicated a division to Persian books named “Hafez Shirazi Corner”.
