Jinhe Naaz hai Hind par voh kahan hain

I couldn’t have come up with a better post on the eve of India’s independence day. Jinhe naaz hai hind par voh kahan hai by Rabbi Shergill. The song is very touching and tells the story of 4 unsung heroes of India in a remarkable manner.

The best part is the strumming of the National Anthem tune between the verses, which serves as the perfect melody between the thought provoking verses.

Lyrics of Bilqis Jinhe naaz hai hind par

Mera naam Bilqis Yakub Rasool
Mujhse hui bas ek hi bhool
Ki jab dhundte thhe vo Ram ko
To main khadi thhi, rah mein

Pehle ek ne puchha na mujhe kuchh pata thha
Duje ko bhi mera yehi jawab tha
Fir itno ne puchha ki mera ab sawal hai ki

Jinhe naaz hai hind par vo kahan the
Jinhe naaz hai vo kahan hain

Mera naam Shriman Satyendra Dubey
Jo kehna tha vo keh chukey
Ab pare hain rah mein
Dil mein liye ek goli

Bas itna kasoor ki humne likha thaa
Vo sach jo har kisi ki zuban thaa
Par sach yahan ho jaate hain zehreele

Jinhe naaz hai hind par wo kahan the
Jinhe naaz hai vo kahan hain

Mujhe kehte hain anna Manjunath
Maine dekhi bhatakti ek laash
Zamir ki beech sarak Lakhimpur Kherhi

Adarsh phansa jahan naaron mein
Aur chor bhare darbaron mein
Wahan maut akhlaq ki hai ik khabar baasi

Jinhe naaz hai hind par vo kahan the
Jinhe naaz hai vo kahan hain

Mazha nau aahe Navleen Kumar
Unnees june unnees bar
Unnees unnees unnees unnees
Unnees baar

Unnees unnees unnees unnees
Unnees unnees unnees unnees
Unnees unnees unnees unnees
Unnees baar

Looto dehaat kholo bazaar
Nallasopara aur Virar
Chheeno zameen humse hume
Bhejo pataal

Jinhe naaz hai hind par vo kahan the
Jinhe naaz hai vo kahan hain

In the first verse Rabbi talks about

First Martyr Bilqis Bano.
Bilkis Bano is one of the victims of the riots which followed
the Godhra train massacre. On March 3 (or February 28), 2002,
she was gangraped in Dahod district of Gujarat when she was
pregnant. She also lost 14 relatives including her 3-year-old
child, mother and 2 sisters.

Second Martyr is Satyendra Dubey.
Satyendra Kumar Dubey (1973 – 2003) was project director at the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI). He was assassinated in Gaya, Bihar for fighting corruption in the Golden Quadrilateral highway construction project.

Third Martyr is Shanmugam Manjunath
Shanmugam Manjunath (1978-2005) was a marketing manager for the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) who was murdered for sealing a
corrupt petrol station in UP. While working for the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) in Lucknow, he had ordered two petrol pumps at
Lakhimpur Kheri sealed for selling adulterated fuel for three months. When the pump started operating again a month later, Manjunath
decided to conduct a surprise raid around November 19, 2005.

During his inspection, Manjunath was shot dead. His body, riddled with at least six bullets, was found in the backseat of his own car, which was being driven by two employees of the petrol pump. Both were arrested and the main accused, pump-owner Pawan Kumar (‘Monu’) Mittal, was held on November 23 along with seven others.

Fourth Martyr is Ms. Navleen Kumar
Ms. Navleen Kumar worked for the land rights of adivasis/tribals in Nallasopara, outskirts of Mumbai was stabbed to death on the terrace of her flat. She had been fighting against “builders and land mafia” who had been
usurping tribal land by terror, force and fraud over the last 20-25 years, to restore the land rights to the tribals – the
original owners.On the 19th of June 2002, she was stabbed 19 times which is apparent in the fourth verse.

I couldn’t have described it better than the author of the above blog post. Love the beautiful national anthem tune and repetition of unnees 19 times. Happy Independence day Guys!
