Imtiaz Gul digs deeper into the parallels between the characters of the novel ‘Animal Farm’ and today’s Pakistani elite. ‘Animal Farm’ was written by English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic George Orwell.
Published in 1945, the book tells the story of a group of farm animals who rebel against their human farmer, hoping to create a society where the animals can be equal, free, and happy. Ultimately, the rebellion is betrayed, and the farm ends up in a state as bad as it was before, under the dictatorship of a pig named Napoleon. According to Orwell, the fable reflects events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then on into the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union.
