EXPLORING POLITICALLY HISTORIC ALLEGORY IN MOHSIN HAMID’S MOTH SMOKE
The present research paper has analyzed Mohsin Hamid’s Moth Smoke by treating history of India and Pakistan allegorically. Through the selected characters the writer has made satire on the Mughal Empire as well as the political leaders of the time who have ruined the resources of country and subjugated people for the celebration of their power. The writer discusses the global issues through the discussion of local issues in the selected novel. This qualitative research based on anticolonial literary theory as counter narrative. The study concluded that history of colonization and subjugation transfers from foreign to local agents who prove to be worse than the actual colonizers.
Keywords. History, politics, allegory, colonial.
