INTERESTING FACT

When Faiz was being taken from the jail in Lahore, in chains, to a dentist’s office in a horse cart (tonga) through the familiar streets, people recognized him, followed his tonga. He expressed this feeling through this poem.

chashm-nam jān-e-shorīda kaafī nahīñ

tohmat-e-ishq-e-poshīda kaafī nahīñ

aaj bāzār meñ pā-ba-jaulāñ chalo

dast-afshāñ chalo mast o raqsāñ chalo

ḳhāk-bar-sar chalo ḳhūñ-ba-dāmāñ chalo

raah taktā hai sab shahr-e-jānāñ chalo

hākim-e-shahr bhī majma-e-ām bhī

tīr-e-ilzām bhī sañg-e-dushnām bhī

sub.h-e-nāshād bhī roz-e-nākām bhī

un dam-sāz apne sivā kaun hai

shahr-e-jānāñ meñ ab bā-safā kaun hai

dast-e-qātil ke shāyāñ rahā kaun hai

raḳht-e-dil bāñdh lo dil-figāro chalo

phir hamīñ qatl ho aa.eñ yaaro chalo

chashm-nam jaan-e-shorida kafi nahin

tohmat-e-ishq-e-poshida kafi nahin

aaj bazar mein pa-ba-jaulan chalo

dast-afshan chalo mast o raqsan chalo

KHak-bar-sar chalo KHun-ba-daman chalo

rah takta hai sab shahr-e-jaanan chalo

hakim-e-shahr bhi majma-e-am bhi

tir-e-ilzam bhi sang-e-dushnam bhi

subh-e-nashad bhi roz-e-nakaam bhi

un ka dam-saz apne siwa kaun hai

shahr-e-jaanan mein ab ba-safa kaun hai

dast-e-qatil ke shayan raha kaun hai

raKHt-e-dil bandh lo dil-figaro chalo

phir hamin qatl ho aaen yaro chalo
