Zahid Hassan’s compilation of Urdu short stories describing fear and terror Rising extremism has largely impacted the image of Pakistan’s society and culture abroad, particularly during the last two decades. The frequently occurring incidents of violence notwithstanding people’s behaviors and thinking patterns are also getting plagued with extremism and irrationality. Expression of consequences of violence and extremist behaviors, particularly in the forms of fear and terror, in art, music, drama, film, short stories and novels etc. is a natural phenomenon because artists and writers are too sensitive to ignore these aspects of life. Aatish-e-Rawan is a compilation of important Urdu short stories which carry such expressions. In these stories we can see glimpses of our recent past.
