In his presidential address, Prof. Syed Zillur Rahman said that Prof. Qasmi was a distinguished Urdu critic who always had an edge over his contemporaries because of his knowledge of Arabic and Persian. He said that Prof. Qasmi always used unique terminologies and metaphors to describe various literary trends that got prevalence over the last one century.

Prof. Masoodul Hasan said that Prof. Qasmi has created a special place for him amongst the accomplished Urdu critics and litterateurs and he appears to be standing tall amongst his contemporaries not only because he has treated the various nuances of Urdu criticism differently, but also because he has evaluated the different critical approaches and trends through the canons of eastern aesthetics.
