He said this at a literary event organised in memory of poets Ahmed Faraz and Parveen Shakir here on Tuesday, said a press release.

The event was organised by the Pakistan Academy of Letters (Pal).

Muhammad Hameed Shahid, Dr Najeeba Arif and Wafa Chishti presented papers on the poets. They termed Faraz a poet of revolution and Parveen Shakir a poet of love.

Baloch said that poets contribute towards changing the thinking of a nation. He said that one of the reasons the country was facing extremism was due to public negligence towards giving due importance to literature and art in the society.
