kashmiri shias
show their pain
ya hussain
ya hussain
a grief
no greater grief
no greater belief
than ghame hussain
ya hussain ya hussain
as it resounds in the valley
into the plains ya hussain
ya hussain we beat our chests
we cut our head but it
hurts others so they complain
pelt stones on shias
followers of yazid
no hearts no brains
ya hussain ya hussain
kashmiri shia show their pain
mashke sakina alam abbas
zainabs snatched rida
abids chains as it snows
as it rains
ya hussain ya hussain
every land is karbala
every day ashura
hussainyat our spiritual domain
wa waila sad wa waila
ibne zehra wa waila
ya hussain ya hussain

kolkatta delhi madras chennai

ya hussain ya hussain

The shias of kashmir
are a unique brand
slapping ther faces
in the grief of
imam hussain
with their hands
mind you tears
run amok
their language
you dont need
to understand
breaking all barriers
of time and space
karbala becomes
hope humanity
in every land
kashmiryat
a voice of peace
eloquently expands
a message
of harmony
justice truth equality
hussain ya hussain
respect commands
enhancing life
ya sakina ya abbas
on head bands
your stones dont
harm them
for they belong
to your own
homeland
for 1400 years
the power
of hussain
yazidyat
could not
withstand
lies crushed
beneath the
feet of man


I hope Bibi Zehra gives me the opportunity one day to shoot the Ashura angst of the Kashmiri Shias my brothers who bind with me in Ghame Hussain


Shah ast Hussain, Badshah ast Hussain
Deen ast Hussain, Deen Panah ast Hussain
Sardad na dad dast, dar dast-e-yazeed,
Haqaa key binaey La ila ast Hussain
