New Delhi: Famous poet Rahat Indauri has taunted Prime Minister Narendra Modi that he should try to understand what is written in it and not by reading the constitution of the country from an educated person. Indouri said this on Thursday night from the stage of protests against the Revised Citizenship Act (CAA), National Civil Register (NRC) and National Population Register (NPR) in Barwali outpost area of the city for the last several days. Videos of 70-year-old poet’s address from this platform are going viral on social media. Indouri said, “I would like to request Prime Minister Narendra Modi that if he is not able to read the constitution, then call a educated man and try to understand what is written in it and what is not.”
Referring to the ongoing protests in various areas of Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh and Indore on the issues of CAA, NPR and NRC, he said, “This fight is the fight of every Hindu, Muslim, Sikh and Christian in India. Let us together This fight has to be fought. ” Pointing directly to the controversy of Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s argument that “we will see, it is likely that we will also see” against a particular religion, Indouri said that some people have changed the meaning of Faiz’s creation.
He said, “I am not surprised at the meaning of Faiz’s nazm being changed, because the people who do so are less educated. They neither know Hindi nor Urdu.” Indauri also recited this famous lion from the anti-CAA stage, including his various compositions, “Everyone’s blood is covered in the soil, there is little Hindustan of one’s father.” He said that it is regrettable that this lion has been linked by the media and some people only to Muslims, while this lion belongs to every Indian citizen who is willing to sacrifice his life for his motherland.
