Zindaan

Jiski umeed thi yeh nahin woh Hindustan hain
Haqeeqat aur khwaab mein aaj bhi faasla darmiyan hain

Hum kehte hain jise ke yeh hamara gulistan hain
Aaj kaisa hain manzar iska, kyun yeh itna veeran hain

Gandhi, Bhagat, Tagore, Tilak bas naam reh gaye panno par
Shahidon ki mazaar ko humne banaya qabristan hain

Jo bhi mila humein Sikh, Issai, Hindu ya Musalmaan hain
Woh pata bata ae dost jahan milta Insaan hain

Har kisi ne loota hain jise sone ki chidiya kehte the
Aisa koi na aaya jiska musallam imaan hain

“Saare jahan se achcha” bas misra reh gaya Iqbal
Sirf naara bankar reh gaya “Mera Bharat Mahaan” hain

Siyaasat mein baithe behre kuch sunne ke qaabil nahin
Janta gungi ho jaaye, aisa unka farman hain

Ise azaadi mile, ek arsaa bita gaya
Desh aaj bhi humein lagta ek zindaan hain ?
