    Interesting Fact

    A satire on Partition violence

    rahīmullāh huā achchhā to us ne

    ye dekhā ho chukī hai partition

    ga.e kuchh bhaag aur kuchh mar chuke haiñ

    na netā-singh baaqī hai na bhīshan

    sune is dāstāñ ke jab fasāne

    to ġhusse ne banāyā us ko majnūñ

    taḌap uTThā ki le kaise vo badla

    piye in kāfiroñ kis tarah ḳhuuñ

    na kyuuñ kahlā sakā vo mard-e-ġhāzī

    vo is ġham meñ ka.ī rāteñ na soyā

    shahādat rutba us ko miltā

    na jab ye mil sakā vo ḳhuub royā

    yakā-yak us ke sab palTe ḳhayālāt

    to us ne dāman-e-islām chhoḌā

    kināra-kash huā sab bhā.iyoñ se

    na.e maz.hab se rishta apnā joḌā

    ka.ī din baa'd jab niklā vo ghar se

    to us ke muñh pe dāḌhī sar pe the baal

    nihālā-singh ab thā naam us

    liye kirpān vo ġhusse se thā laal

    hazāroñ ḳhūñ-fishāñ armān le ke

    khaḌā thā aaj vo masjid ke aage

    pakaḌne ke liye us ko namāzī

    namāzeñ chhoḌ kar masjid se bhāge

    lagā kar ek na.ara vahshat-ālūd

    vahī kirpān jhaT us ne nikālī

    lagā kar qahqaha us ne ye kirpān

    ma.an siine meñ apne ghoñp Daalī

    nikālā phir use siine se bāhar

    gale par zor se us ko phirāyā

    aur apne jāñ-ba-haq hone se pahle

    bayāñ apnā ye ruk ruk kar sunāyā

    tamannā thī ki ik sikh maiñ bhī mārūñ

    ye puurī ne allāh-ta.ālā

    bahut ḳhush huuñ rahīmullāh-ḳhāñ ne

    nihālā-singh-jī ko maar Daalā

    rahimullah hua achchha to us ne

    ye dekha ho chuki hai partition

    gae kuchh bhag aur kuchh mar chuke hain

    na neta-singh baqi hai na bhishan

    sune is dastan ke jab fasane

    to ghusse ne banaya us ko majnun

    taDap uTTha ki le kaise wo badla

    piye in kafiron ka kis tarah KHun

    na kyun kahla saka wo mard-e-ghazi

    wo is gham mein kai raaten na soya

    shahadat hi ka rutba us ko milta

    na jab ye mil saka wo KHub roya

    yaka-yak us ke sab palTe KHayalat

    to us ne daman-e-islam chhoDa

    kinara-kash hua sab bhaiyon se

    nae mazhab se rishta apna joDa

    kai din ba'd jab nikla wo ghar se

    to us ke munh pe daDhi sar pe the baal

    nihaala-singh ab tha nam us ka

    liye kirpan wo ghusse se tha lal

    hazaron KHun-fishan arman le ke

    khaDa tha aaj wo masjid ke aage

    pakaDne ke liye us ko namazi

    namazen chhoD kar masjid se bhage

    laga kar ek nara wahshat-alud

    wahi kirpan jhaT us ne nikali

    laga kar qahqaha us ne ye kirpan

    man sine mein apne ghonp Dali

    nikala phir use sine se bahar

    gale par zor se us ko phiraya

    aur apne jaan-ba-haq hone se pahle

    bayan apna ye ruk ruk kar sunaya

    tamanna thi ki ek sikh main bhi marun

    ye puri tu ne ki allah-taala

    bahut KHush hun rahimullah-KHan ne

    nihaala-singh-ji ko mar Dala
