National academy of performing arts mein 12th March say shoroo hai International Theatre festival. Roz wahan aik play hoty hai jo entertaining, inspirational ya thought provoking hosakty hain. Latest play wahan “Dara” thi.

Dara  Madeeha Gauhar’s Ajoka Theatre troupe nay perform keeya. Iskay writer aur director Shahid Nadeem thay, Dara  Muhammad Dara Shikoh, the son and Wali Ehad of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan kay trial pe based play hai.

Mughal Empire ki glorious history mien kuch kalay dhabay bi hain, Dara mein aik aisay waqye ko bataya hai, yeh story us waqt ki hai jab Mughal Badshah Aurangzeb  nay badhshahat ki kursi kay khatir apnay bhaion ko maarwa deeya. Plot kuch yun hain keh Dara aik jail mein hain jabkay uskay walid former emperor Shah Jehan aur uski beti Jehan Ara bi Agra mien qaid hain. Play kay mutabiq Dara aik aisa insaan tha jo inter faith harmony yani hindu, muslim, essai mein unity ko promote karta tha aur yeh quality Aurangzeb mein nahi thi. Aurangzeb maslay mein par gaya jab usnay dekha kay Dara say pyar karnay wali kafi thay aur agr usko political motives pe mara jata tou wo sahi na hota.

Is ka hal religious figures nay yeh nikala keh Dara ko Shariat ka munkir declare karkay mara jaye, yeh Aurangzeb ko idea pasand aya aur aisa hi keeya gaya. Dara kay baad Sarmad tha line mein aur wo Sufi ban nay chala gaya.
