Jasusi Dunia / جاسوسی دنیا


         ​Jasoosi Dunya (Urdu: جاسوسی دنیا) is a popular series of Urdu detective stories created by Ibne-Safi. Its first novel, Dilaer Mujrim (دلیر مجرم) was published in March 1952. In the following 27 years, Ibn-e-Safi wrote 127 books in the series with his last Jasoosi Dunya novel, Sehra’ee Deewana (صحرائی دیوانہ) appearing in July 1979, a year before his death.

The series mainly spotlights Inspector (later an honorary Colonel) Faridi and Sergeant (later honorary Captain) Hameed, although four books in the series were focused purely on the characters of Anwar (a crime reporter and a private detective) and Rasheeda (his aide and love interest), with an intent of having a spin-off series of its own, which did not succeed somehow. The characters, however, occasionally appeared in many future stories as supporting cast.

A model of rectitude and obsessed with his detective-work, Ahmed Kamal Faridi is a no-nonsense aristocrat who loathes crime and is much resolute in expunging the criminals. He sometimes goes beyond normal human limits as Ibn-e-Safi cast him as an extreme masculine model of physical fitness and moral excellence.

        Sajid Hammed is Faridi’s most favoured and trusted aide. Some integrated story lines define how Faridi found him as a delusional drunkard affected by the brutalities of the World War, rehabilitated him and sheltered him in his own house. The series refers to their brotherly affection and mutual trust at various occasions. Both characters have been designed as two sides of a coin and are inseparable. While Faridi is casted as a graceful, lord-like aristocrat with deep respect for values, Hameed brings a nonchalant, mischievous and lighthearted comic relief.

The series has another regular called Qasim, a close friend of Hameed’s, who with his utmost idiot behavior, provides a backdrop to Hameed’s comedic actions, while aiding main story plots.

The central idea and theme of Safi‘s first book was taken from Victor Gunn’s novel Ironside’s Lone Hand.However, the key characters, Faridi and Hameed, were Ibn-e-Safi‘s own creation. As mentioned by the author in the preface to one of his books, the plots of Purasrar Ajnabee (پر اسرار اجنبی)Raqqasaa Ka Qat’l (رقاصہ کا قتل)Heeray Ki Kaan (ہیرے کی کان), and Khoonee Patthar (خونی پتھر) were adopted from various English-language novels. The characters of Professor Durrani from Khaufnaak Hangaama (خوفناک ہنگامہ), and the Chimpanzee and the White Queen from Paharon Ki Malikaa (پہاڑوں کی ملکہ) were also borrowed from English literature.The rest of Ibne-Safi‘s novels are purely his own creations. Jasoosi Dunya used to be published simultaneously from Pakistan and India.
