    In this article, much discussed and popular novel of Nazir Ahmad, Miratul Uroos is analyzed in gender perspective. With the analysis of its main character Asghari, it is argued that novelistic fiction brings about in Urdu literature possibilities of human Agency, especially for the hitherto silenced voices of oppressed gender. This character also brings forth the ambivalent nature of novel, to the extent that even the reformative pulls of the author gave way to the polyphony.
