The operative part of the poem, ‘Murder of sleeps and a wonderful act of Martyr’ is being produced in English for ready reference as under: The poem, what a wonderful example of exposure of the Indian cultural cover?

“Murder of sleeps

And

A wonderful act of Martyr”

Listen! Oh cruel witch! ...

The Nation of the Martyr*

Slept after offering prayers at the door of Guru!

Then, a witch snake or cobra** stealthily sneaked in, thirsty to suck blood,
The hands of Beant with firmness of mind.

O woman with wicked sons, listen. You have killed the innocent children of my Qaum in their sleep.

But Jarnail who is an old guard of the Guru’s house, is riding the almighty Time and such a rider is never defeated. Listen, 0 heartless and cruel Witch!
The wrath of Beant will finish you like an insect and having demolished the gates of your kingdom, will push you in the darkness of Hell...



The woman like a female witch snake or cobra surrounded the Harmandir and Fate burnt the bread of the pious fakirs.

Then, an arrow shot by Beant came to destroy the poison of the wily witch who slept in the hearts of idol-worshippers.

The innocent babies eaten away in asleep

Listen! Oh cruel witch! ...

The Foot notes to the poem:

*Martyrdom day of Guru Arjan Dev

** A witch snake or cobra, known for killing its victims in sleep by sucking in their breath in imaginary stories.

Mehboob was given the Government’s prestigious Sahitya Akademi award for 1991 for his anthology entitled ‘Jhanan Di Raat’, which contains the long poem vilifying Indira Gandhi as a “witch snake or cobra**” and hailing her assassin Beant Singh as a martyr. It also makes communal references to “idol-worshippers”.


Was it not an act of uncover and exposure of the cultural cover and should be honored by all in the interest of justice and the transparency?
