Nasir Malik belongs to the remote and backward region of Pakistan, so he understands the problems of poets and writers like him very well. He knows that the writer’s community has two major issues. Their books are not published due to long distance from the media centers. Due to lack of resources, these people can not publish their books from large cities like Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad. The second major problem is to not publish their creations in national newspapers and magazines.

In addition, “Urdu Sukhan” launched a website in 2009 for global leveled promotion of Urdu literature. Creations, events, issues, books and news of poets and writers are published in this website.
