Tera Pakistan hai, Na Mera Pakistan Hai

Isn’t this rickshaw wala more daring that many of us who love the drawing-room politics and do nothing practically ?We love sitting in our air-conditioned offices and sending emails all the time arguing in non-sense email debates but when it comes to doing something, we have millions excuses, yet we are first to criticize everything related to Pakistan !

Political parties as expected seem busy playing their dirty roles. MMA (which I call Mullah-Military Alliance) have decided to take part in the elections saying ‘Boycott will be a stupid decission and makes no sense.’ Same is expected from PPP. After the daring stand of PTI to boycott the elections and not even submitting the nomination papers, one might start expecting similar from PML-N. They might also consider this option as they are not well-prepared for elections.Like many others, I consider the upcoming elections a total crap. Political parties should …

Hum Dekhain Gay
We shall see
Lazim Hai ke hum Bhi Dekhain Gay
It is necessary that we shall also see
Woh Din ke Jis ka Wadah Hai
That day which has been promised
Jo Loh-e-Azl pe Likha hai
Which is written with God’s ink
Hum Dekhain Gay
We shall see
Jab Zulm-o-Sitam ke Koh-e-garaan
When the mountains of cruelty and torture
Ruii ki Tarah Urd Jain Gay
Will fly like pieces of cotton
Hum Mehkumoon ke Paun Talay
Under the feet of the governed
Yeh Dharti Dhard Dhard …

طوفان ہے اگر گھر کی درپے یوں بیٹھ نہ جا؀ؤ کچھ تو کرو
کھڑکی کہ شکستہ شیشے پر کاغز ہی لگاؤ کچھ تو کرو
انسان کہ قبضۂ قدرت میں اک نطق نہیں، بہت کچھ ہے
ہونٹوں سے نہ نکلے بات اگر آنکھوں سے سناؤ، کچھ تو کرو
محرومِ تمنا رہنے کا سنّاٹا کھا جائے گا تمہیں
مایوسی کے سکتے سے بچو، آنسو ہی بہاؤ’ کچھ تو کرو
سلطان کے قصرِ مرمر کا دروازۂ آہن بند سہی
گر توڑ نہیں سکتے اس کو، زنجیر ہی ہلاؤ، کچھ تو کرو
اے جلتے ہوئے گھر کے لوگو شعلوں میں گِھرے کیا …

Independently produced documentary about the abduction and illegal detention of Pakistani citizens by Pakistani intelligence agencies. The film is circulating informally among concerned citizens in Pakistan as the subject is too “hot” for commercial channels. This is truth-telling at its bravest, unflinching best.
