A veteran columnist and lawyer, Abdullah Sani, has donated his personal collection of 2,000 books to Research Library Peshawar.
It is the only private sector library of its kind in the city. Research Library was established in 2013 by a criminologist and police officer, Fasihuddin, to help research scholars and students with reference books.
There are around 15,000 books in Urdu, Pashto, English, Persian, Arabic and Hindko at the library.
While speaking to The Express Tribune on Sunday, Fasihuddin said, “Abdullah Sani is a seasoned practitioner, columnist and an old friend.
He donated his entire collection to the Research Library.” It is not the first time that books have been donated to the library.
Lately, noted scholars and prominent personalities have done the same. Sadullah Jan Barq, Saleem Raz, Dr Muhammad Shafiq and Khana Farhang Iran have also donated thousands of books in the past.
