Renowned actress Madeeha Gohar passes away

Renowned TV and stage actress Madeeha Gohar on Wednesday passed away.She was 62
Married to  director, producer and writer Shahid Nadeem, she was the elder sister of famous actress Faryal Gohar and mother of   actress, director, and producer Savera Nadeem.
According to South Punjab News, She had been suffering from cancer for  the last three years.
Her Funeral prayers would be held on Thursday near her residence in 24 Sarwar Road Cantt.Gauhar was born in 1956 in Karachi. After she obtained a Master of Arts degree in English literature, she moved to England where she obtained another master's degree, in theater sciences at the University of London.
In 1983, after returning to Lahore, Gauhar and her husband Shahid Nadeem founded Ajoka Theater, the first theater group of significance there. Ajoka (English:Today) elaborates on the oral tradition of Bhand and Nautanki and found a flourishing base in the area that overlaps the province of Punjab. In spite of her Western education, Gauhar does not limit her practice to classical Western theater techniques. Instead, she mixes authentic Pakistani elements with contemporary sentiments. With Ajoka, Gauhar has performed in Pakistan and other countries in the region such as India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka, as well as in several countries in Europe.
The most important ulterior motive of the shows is the promotion of a justhumanesecular and equal society. In directing theater, the esthetical, moral, social and political reality of today's Pakistan are therefore repeating elements. Ever returning is the subject of women's rights in a society that is greatly dominated by men.
In 2006 she was honored with a Prince Claus Award from the Netherlands.[4] In 2007 she won the International Theater Pasta Award.
In 2007 Ajoka performed a play that was written and directed by Gauhar, the Burqavaganza (Burqa-vaganza), which led to great controversy. Actors dressed in burkas acted out themes of sexual discrimination, intolerance and fanaticism. From a Western perspective, the piece was a rather innocent performance on hypocrisy of a society that bathes in corruption. In her own country, though, Members of Parliament called for a ban of the performance, and the Minister of Culture threatened with sanctions should it would be staged any longer. In spite of the ban, non-governmental organizations and women's rights activists had the play translated into English and staged performances internationally as an sign of support to Ajoka.
