Mushfiq Khwaja was greatly inspired by his affiliation with ‘Anjuman Taraqi-e-Urdu‘, and he achieved numerous significant research breakthroughs from this platform. Mushfiq Khwaja began penning a literary column in the 1980s under the pen name “Khama Bagosh,” which caused a stir throughout the subcontinent.

Mushfiq Khwaja spent his entire life writing and compiling exclusively academic and research materials.

Tazkira-i-Khush Marka-i-Zaiba,” “Ghalib and Safeer Bilgrami,” “Jaiza-e-Makhtootaat-e-Urdu,” “Khama Bagosh Ke Qalam Se,” “Sukhan Dar Sukhan,” “Sukhan Haay Na Guftani,” “Sukhan Haay Gustarana,” “Aabiyaat” (poetry collection), and “Kulliyat-E-Yagana” are a few of his well-known compositions and compilations.
