میں اِنکار کرتا ہوں ۔ عامر عزیز

۱

تم گولیوں سے ہمیں مار ضرور سکتے ہو

لیکن گولیوں سے ہمن مر جائے ایسا ضروری نہیں

ایسا ضرور ہے کہ موت سے ہمن خوف کھاتا ہے

لیکن خوف کھا کے ہمن ڈر جائے ایسا ضروری نہیں

۲

میں ہوّا اور آدم کی سنتان

میری مادرِ وطن ہندستان

محمّد میرا نبی، اللہ میرا خدا

انمبیڈکر میرا شکشک

بُدّھ میرا شروع، نانک میرا گُرُو

امن میرا مذہب عشق میرا ایمان

۳

میں خوف کھا کے ڈر جانے سے

بے موت مارے مر جانے سے

اِنکار کرتا ہوں

۴

میں اِنکار کرتا ہوں

کہ ظلم سے اِنکار کرنا اِنقلاب کی اُور بڑھا ہوا پہلا قدم ہے

میں قدم پیچھے ہٹانے سے اِنکار کرتا ہوں

۵

میرے ہی ملک میں مجھے حق کے بجاے بھیک دیا جائے

مجھے منظور نہیں

مجھے کِسی رجسٹر میں کِسی نام کی طرح لکھ دیا جائے

مجھے منظور نہیں

۶

میں حق کے بجاے بھیک دئیے جانے سے

کسی رجسٹر میں کسی نام کی طرح لکھ دئیے جانے سے

اِنکار کرتا ہوں

میں اِنکار کرتا ہوں

۷

میری جان کا فیصلہ سات گھنٹے کی ایک سنسد سطرر سے ہو

مجھے منظور نہیں

میری پہچان کا فیصلہ کسی پہچان پتر سے ہو

مجھے منظور نہیں

میں ایسے سنسد سطر سے

میں اپنے پہچان پتر سے

میں اِنکار کرتا ہوں

۸

زخم کو پھول کہوں

ظالم کو رسول کہوں

کرفیو کو جمہوریت

نفرت کو اُصول کہوں

جو جھوٹ کو سچ کہے

زبان کی ہر ایک ایسی حرکت سے

میں اِنکار کرتا ہوں

۹

میں اِنکار کرتا ہوں

کہ اِنکار کرنا اِنقلاب کی اُور بڑھا ہوا پہلا قدم ہے

میں قدم پیچھے ہٹانے سے اِنکار کرتا ہوں

میں اِنکار کرتا ہوں

मैं इन्कार करता हूं – आमर अज़ीज़

तुम गोलियों से हमें मार ज़रूर सकते हो
लैकिन गोलियों से हमन मर जाये ऐसा ज़रूरी नहीं
ऐसा ज़रूर है की मौत से हमन ख़ौफ़ खाता है
लैकिन ख़ौफ़ खा के हमन डर जाये ऐसा ज़रूरी नहीं

मैं हव्वा और आदम कि संतान
मेरी मादर-ए वतन हिंदुस्तान
मुहम्मद मेरा नबी अल्लाह मेरा ख़ुदा
अम्बेडकर मेरा शिक्षक
बुद्ध मेरा शुरू नानक मेरा गुरु
अम्न मेरा मज़्हब इश्क़ मेरा ईमान

ख़ौफ़ खा के डर जाने से
बे मौत मारे डर जाने से
मैं इन्कार करता हूँ

मैं इन्कार करता हूँ
के ज़ुल्म से इन्कार करना इन्क़लाब की ओर बढ़ा हुआ पहला क़दम है
मैं क़दम पीछे हटाने से इन्कार करता हूँ

मेरे ही मुल्क में मुझे हक़ के बजाए भीख दिया जाए

मुझे मंज़ूर नहीं
मुझे किसी रजिस्टर में किसी नाम की तरह लिख दिया जाए

मुझे मंज़ूर नहीं

मैं हक़ के बजाए भीख दिए जाने से

किसी रजिस्टर में किसी नाम की तरह लिख दिए जाने से

इन्कार करता हूँ
मैं इन्कार करता हूँ

मेरी जान का फ़ैस्ला सात घंटे की एक संसद सत्र से हो

मुझे मंज़ूर नहीं
मेरी पहचान का फ़ैस्ला किसी पहचान-पत्र से हो

मुझे मंज़ूर नहीं
मैं ऐसे संसद सत्र से
मैं अपने पहचान-पत्र से
मैं इन्कार करता हूं

ज़ख़्म को फूल कहूं
ज़ालिम को रसूल कहूं
कर्फ़्यू को जम्हूरियत
नफ़्रत को उसूल कहूं
जो झूट को सच कहे
ज़बान की हर एक ऐसी हरकत से
मैं इन्कार करता हूँ

मैं इन्कार करता हूँ
के इन्कार करना इन्क़लाब की ओर बढ़ा हुआ पहला क़दम है
मैं क़दम पीछे हटाने से इन्कार करता हूँ

मैं इन्कार करता हूँ

  1. It is stirring! for sure. However, the second piece seems to have ignored Ram, and the pics. Of course, not everything can be crammed in a poem. But somehow a nod to our Vedic heritage, and even Rama, would have completed the picture. So I think.
