    ye ham gunahgār aurteñ haiñ

    jo ahl-e-jubba tamkanat se na ro.ab khā.eñ

    na jaan becheñ

    na sar jhukā.eñ

    na haath joḌeñ

    We sinful women

    ye ham gunahgār aurteñ haiñ

    ki jin ke jismoñ fasl becheñ jo log

    vo sarfarāz Thahreñ

    niyābat-e-imtiyāz Thahreñ

    vo dāvar-e-ahl-e-sāz Thahreñ

    It is we sinful women

    who are not awed by the grandeur of those who wear

    gowns

    who don't sell our lives

    who don't bow our heads

    who don't fold our hands together

    ye ham gunahgār aurteñ haiñ

    ki sach parcham uThā ke nikleñ

    to jhuuT se shāhrāheñ aTī mile haiñ

    har ek dahlīz pe sazāoñ dāstāneñ rakhī mile haiñ

    jo bol saktī thiiñ vo zabāneñ kaTī mile haiñ

    It is we sinful women

    while those who sell the harvests of our bodies

    become exalted

    become distinguished

    become the just princes of the material world.

    ye ham gunahgār aurteñ haiñ

    ki ab ta.āqub meñ raat bhī aa.e

    to ye āñkheñ nahīñ bujheñgī

    ki ab jo dīvār gir chukī hai

    use uThāne zid na karnā!

    It is we sinful women

    who come out raising the banner of truth

    against barricades of lies on the highways

    who find stories of persecution piled on each threshold

    who find the tongues which could speak have been

    severed.

    ye ham gunahgār aurteñ haiñ

    jo ahl-e-jubba tamkanat se na ro.ab khā.eñ

    na jaan becheñ

    na sar jhukā.eñ na haath joḌeñ!

    It is we sinful women.

    Now, even if the night gives chase

    these eyes shall not be put out.

    For the wall which has been razed

    don't insist now on raising it again.

    It is we sinful women

    who are not awed by the grandeur of those who wear

    gowns

    who don't sell our bodies

    who don't bow our heads

    who don't fold our hands together.

    ye hum gunahgar aurten hain

    jo ahl-e-jubba ki tamkanat se na roab khaen

    na jaan bechen

    na sar jhukaen

    na hath joDen

    We sinful women

    ye hum gunahgar aurten hain

    ki jin ke jismon ki fasl bechen jo log

    wo sarfaraaz Thahren

    niyabat-e-imtiyaz Thahren

    wo dawar-e-ahl-e-saz Thahren

    It is we sinful women

    who are not awed by the grandeur of those who wear

    gowns

    who don't sell our lives

    who don't bow our heads

    who don't fold our hands together

    ye hum gunahgar aurten hain

    ki sach ka parcham uTha ke niklen

    to jhuT se shahrahen aTi mile hain

    har ek dahliz pe sazaon ki dastanen rakhi mile hain

    jo bol sakti thin wo zabanen kaTi mile hain

    It is we sinful women

    while those who sell the harvests of our bodies

    become exalted

    become distinguished

    become the just princes of the material world.

    ye hum gunahgar aurten hain

    ki ab taaqub mein raat bhi aae

    to ye aankhen nahin bujhengi

    ki ab jo diwar gir chuki hai

    use uThane ki zid na karna!

    It is we sinful women

    who come out raising the banner of truth

    against barricades of lies on the highways

    who find stories of persecution piled on each threshold

    who find the tongues which could speak have been

    severed.
