Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

بلٹ پروف

ان کے ہاتھ دراز ہیں

اور ان کی عقلوں پر پٹّی پڑی ہے

رب! اب آپ پاکستان مہں صرف

بلٹ پروف بچے بھیجیے گا۔

In memory of the Peshawar school attack (16.12.2014).

  1. Oh Maria…. Such pain. Such Pain. Your words…. I can’t say anything except that I have been crying since morning, watching mothers of those children, listening to their painful stories and not for once I had an answer to give to my mind. Your poem, may be satirical, may be innocent, just gave an answer to my thoughts. Bus Dua kero Maria, ab khatam ho jay ye sab. Aur nae dekha jata.

  5. بلٹ پروف کافی نہیں۔ یہاں بچوں پر بم بھی برس چکے ہیں مگر جانے کیوں ہر سال ان کی برسی’ ان کی زندگی کی طرح خاموشی سے گزر جاتی ہے۔ شاید 2006 میں عالمی منڈی میں خون کی قیمت کم رہی ہو گی۔ یا شاید اس لئے کہ وہ “بڑے دشمن” کے بچے تھے۔ ضرور پڑھنا۔
