Iqbal wrote the two poems, “Shikwa” and “Jawab-i Shikwa” (Complaint to God and its Response), in early twentieth century. It was the prime time of his poetic revelation, which is called his third period that began in 1908 and ended at his death in 1938. During that time Muslims in India had almost lost their entity as a nation. They had become the most oppressed community in British ruled India.
Iqbal’s poem “Shikwa” was one of his most thrilling poems, which he recited personally in the month of April 1911 at the annual session of Anjuman Himayat-i Islam held in the compound of Islamia College, Lahore. It was largely applauded and subsequently published in the magazines and journals of the country. This poem consists of 31 stanzas having six verses each. In the poem Iqbal has highlighted Islam’s living traditions in such a way that it strikes the very heart of a person. The carefully selected and well-knit words of the poem were immensely effective. They filled the hearts of a deprived nation with new life, courage and enthusiasm. The poem “Shikwa” is a unique example of a complaint to God.
Pakistan wake up… and tell these terrorists that we were asleep but not dead. We have awakened from deep sleep and now get ready for punishment. We are behind our Pak Forces and we will defeat you, as you deserve.
Tell this bunch of losers and fanatics, that their end is near. Their stupid ideas and logic about Islam is not real, they are just illiterate, brainwashed Muslim extremists. Who only know to kill the innocent people in the name of God. If these stupid Taliban think, they are on right path, and then they should come face to face to fight with us, instead of attacking from behind.
Pakistan, tell these so called Muslims that we are after them now, and we will hunt them down. The entire nation stands with the Pakistan Armed Forces, shoulder to shoulder. You come to our cities; we will hunt and kill you there. These extremists have no place on this planet earth; they have played their part of the game. Now it’s our turn to teach you a lesson. We will not let you use the name of Allah and Islam for satanic sacrifices.
Pakistan tell these extremists, that we are a nation not herd, and we know you and your agenda. ENOUGH is ENOUGH. We are ready to face you. You stupid Taliban come out of your hide outs and give us a face to face try.
