Abbas' first Urdu novel Nakhalistan Ki Talash (2004), written when he was 24, created a storm in the conservative Urdu literary circles, and protests by religious conservatives forced him to resign from his post as lecturer in a junior college in the heart of Mumbai. This novel is immensely stimulating, rich in imagery, profound in characterization,dazzling in its descriptive power. The novel poses serious questions and discusses the identity crisis of Indian Muslim youths. This novel narrates story of an young man who is inclined towards the Kashmir struggle and finds his search for his identity blurred during the rise of right-wing and hate-filled politics in India at the turn of the 21st Century.
He was arrested on the charges of obscenity when two members of the state legislative council questioned in the assembly over the uproar and Home Ministry had come under the shadow of these questions.Template:Http://www.bbc.co.uk/urdu/miscellaneous/story/2005/12/051228 fictionurdu 2005 sen.shtml
