The Islamic Republic of Pakistan should be renamed The Jurassic Republic of Pakistan

By Justice Markandey Katju

The misdeeds of the rulers of Pakistan are accurately described in this poem :

Zameen bech daali zaman bech daala

Lahu bech daala badan bech daala

Kiya mere gulshan ki har shay ka sauda

Shajar bech daala chaman bech daala

Kiye the naukri-o-makaanon ke vaade

Meri jaan-e-madfan kafan bech

daala

Main roti-o-kapdon mein uljha raha

Ek nashai ne mera watan bech daala

The misdeeds of the rulers of Pakistan who looted the country for decades, has left the country bankrupt, majority of people destitute, hungry, unemployed, etc and with skyrocketing prices of essential commodities. This prompted the great Urdu poet Habib Jalib to write this poem about them.
