Mohammed Rafi


I was saddened to hear about the desecration of the tomb of some of the legendary Muslim poets, singers, and actresses of ester year foremost among them was singer Mohammed Rafi, poet Shahir Ludhianvi, actress Madhubala. The Muslim community trust managing the cemetery at Juhu, Bombay had to say that this was inevitable due to the shortage of burial space.

Here's a small poem that came to my mind on my favourite singer Mohammed Rafi

apne Mohammed ka to din raat sajda kiya

mere Mohammed ka nam-o-nishan mita diya

अपने मोहम्मद का तो दिन रात सजदा किया

मेरे मोहम्मद का नाम ओ निशान मिटा दिया
