Listen to a poem banned by the British for exposing Police atrocities
In 1921, the British Government banned and confiscated a poem written by an unknown freedom fighter whose pen name was ‘Noor’. In the aftermath of Rowlatt Satyagraha, Non-cooperation and Khilafat Movement this poem asks the policemen that what morality they have to attack their own countrymen on the orders of the British. He asks if a salary is more important than humanity. The poem opens with a powerful couplet:
Aey police waalo sitam karna sataana chodh do
Bhaaiyo ke halaq par khanjar chalana chodh do
Listen and appreciate the fact that how much mighty British empire was afraid of pen.
