kuchh aadmi samaj pe bojhal hain aaj bhi


kuchh aadmī samāj pe bojhal haiñ aaj bhī
rassī to jal ga.ī hai magar bal haiñ aaj bhī

insāniyat ko qatl kiyā jaa.e is liye
dair o haram kī aaḌ meñ maqtal haiñ aaj bhī

ab bhī vahī hai rasm-o-rivāyat kī bandagī
matlab ye hai ki zehn muqaffal haiñ aaj bhī

bāteñ tumhārī shaiḳh o barhaman ḳhatā-muāf
pahle kī tarah ġhair-mudallal haiñ aaj bhī

'rāhī' har ek samt fasād o inaad ke
chhā.e hue fazāoñ meñ bādal haiñ aaj bhī

kuchh aadmi samaj pe bojhal hain aaj bhi
rassi to jal gai hai magar bal hain aaj bhi

insaniyat ko qatl kiya jae is liye
dair o haram ki aaD mein maqtal hain aaj bhi

ab bhi wahi hai rasm-o-riwayat ki bandagi
matlab ye hai ki zehn muqaffal hain aaj bhi

baaten tumhaari shaiKH o barhaman KHata-muaf
pahle ki tarah ghair-mudallal hain aaj bhi

'rahi' har ek samt fasad o inad ke
chhae hue fazaon mein baadal hain aaj bhi
