Haseena Moin, writer and dramatist has passed away in Karachi at 79 years.
The cause of her death was not immediately announced.
Moin, one of the most prolific dramatists in Pakistani history, was known for writing classics like Tanhaiyan, Ankahi and Dhoop Kinare. She was also the one who introduced Zeba Bakhtiar to Raj Kapoor for the movie Henna, which Moin also wrote.
She was last seen in public at a Pakistan Day event at the Arts Council of Pakistan in Karachi on March 23.
A day before that, she visited the Arts Council of Pakistan to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
A web-series she wrote on breast cancer is scheduled to release next month. Moin was a breast cancer survivor.
Moin was in her teens when she started writing a column for the popular children’s monthly Bhaijan. When she was in her 20s she wrote skits for the popular weekly radio program Studio Number Nau. But it was the newly audio-visual medium of TV that brought the best out of her.
