Ramadan Mubarak - Story of Secular India

Yeh toh siyasaton ka takaza hai,

warna pehle mazhab ek dusre ka saath nibhaya karte the,

main bhi bada hua hun musalmano ke beech,

roti kum padne par, hum ek hi thali mein khaya karte the,

meri maa ke paranthe mujhse jyada unko pasand the,

woh bhi Eid pe mere liye kheer le aya karte the,

na babri ka zikar tha wahan,

na ram mandir ke itihas ki ladayi,

hum bas ek dusre ki mushkilaton mein kaam aya karte the,

kabhi main dargah chale jata tha saath unke,

kabhi woh diwali par milne ajaya karte the,

mujhe bhi tha apne quraan-e-gyaan par guroor,

woh bhi geeta ko galat na thehraya karte the

ramzano mein main bhi bhookha reh liya karta tha saath unke,

navratro mein woh bhi khana na laaya karte the,

takaza mehaz siyasaton ka hai aaj,

warna mazhab pehle ek dusre ka saath nibhaya karte the,

namaz mein dua karlete the woh bhi mere khairiyat ki,

meri bhi ibadat mein aksar unke naam aya karte the,

mujhe bhi bakhoob tha milne ka saleekha sabse,

salam-walequm tha mere labon par shaad,

woh bhi haath jod mere maa baap se aashirwaad lejaya karte the,

taleem bhi paayi saath hi humne,

main sikha deta tha sanskrit unhe,

woh mujhe urdu sikhaya karte the,

pathan, khan, siddiqui, qureshi, in sab ke beech hum kuch brahmin bhai the,

hum choote na the madira unke samne,

woh bhi mere samne maas nahi khaya karte the,

baat saari ek dusre ki soch ki izzat karne ki hai,

yeh hindustan zameen kai rangon ki hai,

lahu hai tirange par har mazhab ka hamare,

yun hi nahi ashfwaqullah khan bismil ko apni nazmein sunaya karte the,

takaza mehaz siyasaton ki hai,

ramzan mein ram, aur diwali mein ali hamnesha se aya karte the

main bhi bada hua hu musalmano ke beech
roti kum padne par hum ek hi thaali mein khaya karte the
