The day marks the martyrdom anniversary of a prolific poet , Zakir-e-Ahlul Bayt [AS],man of letter and a popular broadcaster and academician of national level Shaheed Mohsin Naqvi who was martyred on this day in 1996.
Lay Zindagi ka Khums Ali[AS] ke Ghulam se !
Aye Maut Aa Zarur ,magar ehteraam se!
Ironically his murderers and their ideological accomplices enjoy the status and privileges of government official for several years despite the lifting of ban on hanging following the Peshawar carnage .
In Pakistan ,Shia muslims have been at the receiving end of terrorism ever since 1960's when the first systematic terrorist incident against shia muslims took place in thairhi and the protests have normally fallen on deaf ears through these five decades.
The national consensus built during last one or two years against terrorism is a welcome omen ,however , tremendous damage has already been done and of-course even to this day ,the most notorious proven killers whose confessional statements are on record, like the cursed Malik Ishaq, enjoys the position of a spiritual spear-head for the like minded in the echelons of powers.
Ae Rabbe jahan punjtan e paak ka sadqa
Iss qoum ka daman gham e shabir say bhar day.
Bachoon ko aata ker Ali Asghar ka tabassum
Burhoon ko Habib Ibn e Mazahir ki nazar day.
Kamsin ko milay walwalaye auno Muhammad
Har eik jawan ko Ali Akbar ka jigar day.
Maoon ko sikha saniy e Zahra ka saliqa
Behnoon ko Sakina ki duaâ€™oon ka asar day.
Maula tujhay Zainab ki asiri ki qasam hai
Bay jurm asiroon ko rahai ki khabar day.
Jo chadar e Zainab ki azadar hain mola
Mehfooz rahein aisi khawateen kay parday.
Jo deen kay kam aayein woh aulad aata ker
Jo majlisay Shabir ki khatir ho woh ghar day.
Muflis pay zaro lal jawahir ki ho barish
Maqrooz ka har karz ada ghaib say ker day.
Gham koi na day humko siwa e gham e Shabir
Shabir ka gham bant raha hai to idhar dey.
Aie Rab e jahan panjtan e pak ka sadqa
Is kom ka daman gham e shabir say bhar day.
Shaheed Dr. Mohsin Naqvi..
