Poem Hunter
The Nation Is Not In Danger
(24 March 1928 - 12 March 1993 / Hoshiarpur, Punjab / British India)

The Nation Is Not In Danger

The nation is not in danger, but the system of capital is.
In fact, the marauder in the garb of leader is in danger.

The person who is sitting to mourn the death of darkness
That mourner is in danger, that intellectual is in danger.

Those who are apprehensive, are only the rulers,
Neither your house, nor mine, is in danger.

The place where even Iqbal has become a victim of de-recognition
Jalib, are you complaining that your art is in danger?

(Translation from Urdu: Arjumand Ara)
