Mazloom Ka Zulm……

A very thought-provoking article. I am totally agree with author of this article.  As a nation, this is our worst habit, that we are easily emotionally blackmailed especially in religious matters. This is not the right way to protest. This is not our teachings to make other’s life miserable. These stupid acts make more enemies for us and effect the sympathy factor.

Loh-e-Ayaam

Recently I got the book, which I have been searching for a long time. “Loh-e-Ayaam” by Mukhtar Masood. It is basically travelogue, sort of diary of author when he was in Iran,during the time of Islamic Revolution. Absolutely it is a master piece, one should read it if he is interested in history. He wrote in a very interesting way. Here, I put some my favorite extracts from book.

“Es kitab ko likhne me etna waqt nahi laga,jtna yeh taih karne me k likha jae ya na likha jae aur agr likha jae tu es ki hadbandi kaise ki jae. Inqilab kuah ktna he purana kyon na ho uski dastan hamesha taza rehte hea. Junoon or lahu ki dastan b kahin purani hote hea? Zamana es ko bar bar dohrata hea, farq sirf naam, muqam or waqt ka hota hea.”

“Ek daig ju mea ne Iran k qayam k agaz me ubalte hue dekhi hea wu bepanah daulat,befikar jawani or bechen electronice music ki shabdaigh hea. Ak dosre or bare se daigh hea. Daulat se mehroom, Zulm se aajiz, beiktiyar or beawaz logon k jazbat ki daigh. khud bud us me b horahi hea. Najane kab ubal pare ya phat jae. Ubli tu islehaat,phati tu Inqilab.”

“Iranion ko samjne k liye un ki shairi ko samjna zaruri hea. Qasede ne un k mizaj me mubalga bar diya hea. Kayali mehbob ki yaad me shair parhen ge or junhi moqah mila apni biwi ki pitai kar denge. Apni baat ut masnawi ki tarah tool denge. Dosra baat kare tu rubai ki tarah ektesar se kaam lene ki talqen karenge.Zameen banjar,zehan zarkez hea. tazaad en k yahan kai milenge. Sab se bara yeh ki Imam Hussain (a.s) ka dam barte hen magar sadyon se matlaqul anaan badshahon ki rehaya hen.”

“Hafte me ak baar kisi na kisi shehar me log zara zyada he taadad me mar jate hen, En amwat ko ahle ektedar ne kabhi kable tawajuh nahi samja. Ab Tehran me footpath dhone k liye koi mustehadi nahi dekata. Khon jhan behta hea wahen jam jata hea. Dhaba pehle din surkh hota hea, dosre din matyala, tesre din siah or pamal. chote din us ka suragh b nahi milta. Yeh khone khak nashenan tha, rizqe khaak hua. “

“Fard ko baat baat per dar lagta hea magar jalus or hajum hamesha nidar hota hea.Boht se log yakja or yak irada hojaen tu kauf un k nazdeek nahi aata, Lathi charge,ansu gas, goli. Josh or walwale k age sab beasar or bemaine.”

“Tehran me ab roz jalus nikalte hen. Her mohalae se nikalte hen. subah se sham tak nikalte hen. Jalus me her shea ki bohtat hote hea. Shamil hone walon ki,jaan dene walon ki, behne wale lahu ki. Albata naaron k silsile me jalus bare kifayat or kanjusi se kaam leta hea. Pehle 2 maah sirf ak nara se kam chalaya, agle 2 maah k liye es me dosre nara ka izafa karliya. Ab ahtejaj musalsal panchwe mahena chara hea tu kahen ja ker tesre narae ka izafa kar liya hea. Marg bar shah se chale or darud bar Khumeni se hote hue marg bar America tak ponch gaye.”
