khooN baha

khooN baha

(Iftikhar Arif)

apne shaih~savaaroN ko
qatl karne vaaloN se
khooN baha talab karna
vaarisoN pe vaajib tha,
qaatiloN pe vaajib tha
khooN baha ada karna

vaajibaat ki takmeel
munsifoN pe vaajib thi
(musnifoN ki nigraani
qudsioN pe vaajb thi)
vaqt ki adaalat meiN
eik samt masnad thi
ek samt khanjar tha
taaj-e-zar-nigaar ik samt
eik samt lashkar tha
ik taraf thi majboori
ik taraf muqaddar tha
taaife pukaar uTThe
“taaj-o-takht zindabaad!
saaz-o-rakht zindabaad!”

khalq ham se kehti hai, saara maajra likkheN
kis ne kis tarah paaya apna khooN baha, likkheN
chashm-e-nam se sharminda,
ham qalam se sharminda, sochte haiN kiya likkheN

Duaa

aaiye haath uThaayeN ham bhi

Faiz Ahmed Faiz

aaiye haath uThaayeN ham bhi
ham jinheN rasm-e-dua yaad naheeN
ham jinheN soz-e-mohabbat ke siva
koii but, koii Khuda yaad naheeN

aaiye arz guzaareN ke nigaar-e-hasti
zaihr-e-imroz meiN sheereeni-e-farda bhar de
voh jinheN taab-garaaN~baari-e-ayyaam naheeN
un ki palkoN pe shab-o-roz ko halka kar de

jin ki aaNkhoN ko rukh-e-subh ka yaara bhi naheeN
un ki raatoN meiN koii shamaa munavvar kar de
jin ke qadamoN ko kisi rah ka sahaara bhi naheeN
un kii nazaroN pe koii raah ujaagar kar de

jinakaa deeN pairavi-e-kazbo-riya hai un ko
himmat-e-kufr mile, jurrat-e-tehqeeq mile
jin ke sar muntazir-e-tegh-e-jafa haiN un ko
dast-e-qaatil ko jhaTak dene ki taufeeq mile

ishq ka sarr-e-nihaaNN jaan tapaaN hai jis se
aaj iqraar kareN aur tapish miT jaaye
harf-e-haq dil meiN khaTakta hai jo kaNTe kii tarah
aaj izahaar kareNn or khalish miT jaaye

Pakistan Under Enemy Occupation

Pakistan under enemy occupation

Pakistan once again has fallen victim to the illegal occupation by its very own rogue Armed Forces following the imposition of emergency rule by the illegitimate President Pervez Musharraf, suspending the country’s constitution and choking any democratic aspirations by its besieged people.
