Iqbal, tere sheher mai.

My optimism regarding my homeland breathed its last on August 15, 2010.

This brutal killing in Iqbal’s city can only be described in Iqbal’s words:

Marnay walay martay hain lekin fanah hotay nahi;

Yeh haqeeqat mai kabhi hum say judah hotay nahi.

-

Marnay walon ki jabeen roshan hai is zulmaat mai;

Jis tarha taaray chamaktay hain andheri raat mai.
