Tu Hindu Banega, Na Musalmaan Banega – Music & Lyrics

On the day of the Ayodhya verdict, I was listening to a song composed by Sahir Ludhianvi and sung by Rafi. Though I was aware that Sahirji has composed some of the best songs of Hindi cinema, I was surprised to find out that he was one of the first lyricists to claim recognition for his efforts towards composing a song which otherwise went to the singer or music director. Anyway, here is that song!

Tu hindu banega, na musalmaan banega,
Insaan ki aulaad hai, insaan banega;

Qudrat ne to banaai thi ek hi duniyaa,
Hamne use hindu aur musalmaan banaayaa,
Tuu sabke liye aman ka pai Ghaam banega,
Insaan ki aulaad hai, insaan banega;

Ye deen ye eemaan dharam bechane vaale,
Dhan-daulat  ke bhookhe vatan bechane vaale,
Tu inake liye maut ka ailaan banega,
Insaan ki aulaad hai insaan banega;

One more song of Sahirji which happens to be a personal favorite – Yeh Duniya Agar Mi Bhi Jaaye To Kya Hai
