Poetry by Faiz Ahmed Faiz
Originally composed by Arshad Mehmud

This nazm of revolutionary poet, Faiz Ahmed Faiz, is brought to life in a mellifluous ballad performed by Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan. The voicings of this emotionally stirring appeal to set the truth free are embellished with a poignant flute and the delicate murmurs of the mandolin. Masterfully executed by Shani Arshad, this tribute to one of the most celebrated writers in our history is a crescendo of emotions that will leave you spellbound.
