Manto on Himself, Society, Censorship

میں تہذیب و تمدن اور سوسائٹی کی چولی کیا اتاروں گا جو ہے ہی ننگی میں اسے کپڑے پہنانے کی کوش بھی نہیں کرتا۔ اس لئے کہ یہ میرا کام نہیں درزیوں کا ہے۔
Why would I want to undress a society that is already naked? Yes, it is true I make no attempt to cover it but that’s not my job… my job is to write with a white chalk, so that I can draw attention to the darkness of the board.
– Saadat Hassan Manto
