Dr. Muhammad Iqbal (1877 – 1938) on Wataniat:

Ho qaid-e-maqami toh nateejah hai tabahaee
Rah bahar main azad-e-watan soorat-e-maahee

Hai tark-e-watan sunnat-e-mahboob-e-ilahee
Dai tu bhi nabuwwat ki sadaqat pah gawahaee

Guftar-e-siyasat main watan aur hi kuch hai
Irshad-e-nabuwwat main watan aur hi kuch hai

Aqwam-e-jahan main hai raqabat toh isi sai
Taskheer hai maqsood-e-tijarat toh isi sai

Khali hai sadaqat sai siyasat toh isi sai
Kamzor ka ghar hota hai gharat toh isi sai

Aqwam main makhlooq-e-khuda bat-ti hai is sai
Aaumeat islam ki jar kat-ti hai is sai

And my favourite…

Yah but kah tarasheeda tahzeeb-e-nawi hai
Gharat gar-e-kashana-e-deen-e-nabawi hai
 
Bazar tira tawheed ki quwwat sai qawi hai
Islam tera dais hai, tu mustafawi hai!

Nazzara-e-dairina zamanay ko dikha dai
Ai mustafawi khak main iss but ko mila dai!

As with so much else…the Allama was remarkably insightful…

A gem from the 'Dalai Lama':

"This new terrorism has been brewing for many years. Much of it is caused by jealousy and frustration at the West because it looks so highly developed and successful on television"

So nothing to do with the West invading other countries, bombing and killing innocent civilians and pursuing a neo-imperialist foreign policy? No? Oh okay. What about the grinding poverty imposed on 'the South' by the West's unfair trade practices and unfairer usurious economic system? Not that either? Oh well..must be the TV programmes then, not enough channels or something.

This Lama guy already appears to have attained his 'nirvana'… i.e. become senile / demented. Maybe that's what he does all day – watch TV – so he thinks the 'terrorists' do the same. Now there's a thought – do they have The Bold and the Beautiful in the Afghan caves? hmm.. that would explain some of the annoyance and pent-up frustration those terrorist types exhibit – wouldn't you be a tad upset if you had to watch that trash all day, every day? 

And there are fools who go to this Lama for 'enlightenment'?
