juNg baazauN ka farmaan-sardar jafri

جنگ بازوں کا فرمان ۔ علی سردار جعفری

 

خون و بارود کی بوُ کو بھی معطر سمجھو

حکم اب یہ ہے کہ زخموں کو گُلِ تر سمجھو

 

موت کی گود سے لو لذّتِ ہم آغوشی

خمِ تلوار کو محبوب کا  پیکر سمجھو

 

جنگ کو امن کہو، امن کو دو جنگ کا نام

نشترِ خار کو پھولوں کے برابر سمجھو

 

دولتِ دیدۂ تر چار طرف عام ہوئی

آنسوؤں کو بھی مئے ناب کا ساغر سمجھو

 

روحِ اِبلیس کو دو حضرتِ جبریل کا نام

جھوٹ کو حکمِ خدا، حرفِ  پیمبر سمجھو

जंग बाज़ों का फ़रमान – अली सरदार जाफ़्री

 

ख़ून ओ बारूद कि बू को भी मो’अत्तर समझो

हुक्म अब ये है के ज़ख़्मौं को गुल-ए तर समझो

 

मौत कि गोद से लो लज़्ज़त-ए हम-आग़ोशी

ख़म-ए तलवार को महबूब का पैकर समझो

 

जंग को अम्न कहो, अमन को दो जंग का नाम

नश्तर-ए ख़ार को फूलौं के बराबर समझो

 

दौलत-ए दीदा-ए तर चार तरफ़ आम हुई

आंसुओं को भी मै-ए नाब का साग़र समझो

 

रूह-ए इब्लीस को दो हज़्रत- जिब्रील का नाम

झूट को हुक्म-ए ख़ुदा हर्फ़-ए पै’अम्बर समझो

Click here for overall comments and on any she’r for word meanings and discussion/interpretation. This is a beautiful example of how religion is used to justify war and incite killing in the guise of ‘supreme sacrifice’. See kaifi azmi’s ‘doosra banbaas’ to see use of religion in inciting communal riots.
