Example text

You were drenched with blood in the desert of exile, We wander in our own home, our chests heavy with sorrow. From the alleyway of the prison to the courtyard of execution, My friends stagger with nooses about their necks. 46 The transformation of Palestine into a metaphor for the politics of resistance in Pakistan is also seen in the works of the Urdu poet most closely identified with the Palestinian cause Faiz Ahmad Faiz (1911-1984), generally regarded as the greatest Urdu poet of the post-Partition era.

The poet is also in no doubt as to the scale of the injustice perpetrated in Palestine; for him it is a crime that violates all universal human values: "In such a conflagration did they/Seize you/That not only you but everything in this world that is humane has been set aflame". The poem concludes with strong expression of support for the armed struggle as a means to the liberation of Palestine. The legitimacy of armed struggle is, of course, a fundamental principle in the anti-colonialist/anti-imperialist discourses of Thirdworld societies from the 1950s to the 1980s.
