جنگ نہ ہونے دیں گے ۔ اٹل بہاری واجپائی

۱

ہم جنگ نہ ہونے دیں گے

وشو شانتی کے ہم ہیں سادھک، جنگ نہ ہونے دیں گے

۲

کبھی نہ کھیتوں میں، پھر خونی کھاد پھلے گی

کھلیانوں میں نہیں، موت کی فصل کِھلے گی

آسمان پھر کبھی نہ، انگارے اُگلے گا

ایٹم سے ناگاساکی، پھر نہیں جلے گی

یُدھوی بِن وِشو کا سپنا بھنگ نہ ہونے دیں گے

جنگ نہ ہونے دیں گے

۳

ہتھیاروں کے ڈھیروں پر جن کا ہے ڈیرا

منھ پر شانتی، بغل میں بم، دھوکے کا ہے پھیرا

کفن بیچنے والوں سے، کہہ دو یہ چِلّا کر

دنیا جان گئی ہے اب، اُن کا اصلی چہرہ

کامیاب ہوں اُن کی چالیں، ڈھنگ نہ ہونے دیں گے

جنگ نہ ہونے دیں گے

۴

ہمیں چاہئے شانتی، زندگی ہم کو پیاری

ہمیں چاہئے شانتی، ہے سرجن کی تیاری

چھیڑی جنگ ہے بھوک سے اور بیماری سے

آگے آ کر ہاتھ بٹائے دنیا ساری

ہری بھری دھرتی کو خونی رنگ نہ لینے دیں گے

جنگ نہ ہونے دیں گے

۵

بھارت پاکستان پڑوسی ساتھ ساتھ ہی رہنا ہے

پیار کریں یا وار کریں دونوں ہی کو سہنا ہے

تین بار لڑ چکے لڑائی، کتنا مہنگا سودا

روسی بم ہو یا امریکی، خون ایک ہی بہنا ہے

جو ہم پر گذری بچوں کے سنگ نہ ہونے دیں گے

جنگ نہ ہونے دیں گے

जंग न होने देंगे – अटल बेहारी वाज्पाई

हम जंग न होने देंगे

वीश्व-शांती के हम हैं साधक, जंग न होने देंगे

कभी न खेतौं में फिर ख़ूनी खाद फलेगी

खलियानौं में नहीं, मौत कि फ़स्ल खिलेगी

आस्मान फिर कभी ना, अंगारे उग्लेगा

एटम से नागासाकी, फिर नहीं जलेगी

यद्धवी बिन विश्व का सपना, भंग न होने देंगे

जंग न होने देंगे

हथियारौं के ढेरौं पर जिन का है डेरा

मुंह पर शांती, बग़ल में बम, धोके का है फेरा

कफ़न बेचने वोलौं से, कह दो ये चिल्ला कर

दुनिया जान गई है अब, उन का अस्ली चेहरा

काम्याब हों उन की चालें, ढंग न होने देंगे

जंग न होने देंगे

हमें चाहिये शांती, ज़िंदगी हम को प्यारी

हमें चाहिये शांती, है सरजन की तय्यारी

छेढी जंग है भूक से और बीमारी से

आगे आ कर हाथ बटाए दुनिया सारी

हरी भरी धर्ती को ख़ूनी रंग न लेने देंगे

जंग न होने देंगे

भारत पाकिस्तान पढोसी साथ साथ हि रहना है

प्यार करें या वार करें दोनों ही को सहना है

तीन बार लढ चुके लढाई, कितना महंगा सौदा

रूसी बम हो या अम्रीकी, ख़ून एक हि बहना है

जो हम पर गुज़्री बच्चौं के संग न होने देंगे

जंग न होने देंगे
