Late Mr Masood Akhtar played the main role of a labour leader in my ptv Lahore May Day play which ended with the singing of the "Internationale". His ideological commitment was so inspiring. One could write and act in such plays when Bibi Sahiba Shaheed was PM.— Taj Haider (@Sen_TajHaider) March 5, 2022
