Several years back I read a book named “Aawaz-e-Dost” authored by Mukhtar Masood. A “khaka” (sketch)was written on Maulana Hasrat Mohani. The said khaka is extraordinary like Maulana Hasrat Mohani. I suggest to include that one on your blog.
A great poet and the greatest person in the history of freedom fighters of subcontinent. His life is inspiring and his personality is almost perfect …Moulana Zaffar Ali Khan once said…’ one recall the memories of early Muslims after meeting Moulana Hasrat Mouhani…’
In my views, he is the great poet indeed and a good poet never dies because his poetry sustains his name in the world such kind of situation is with mohani. i being a student of M.A. English literature confess that mohani’s one ghazal is equal to all the romantic poetry of romantic poets of west. The ghazal is “chupke chupke raat din aansu bahana yaad hai”. I’m very much impressed by this romantic ghazal.
I love maulana Hasrat Mohani for the man he was, he may be a good poet, but he was the tallest in character and manhood among the pygmies of his days and of today. I love this man from the depth of my heart and pray to Almighty Allah to reward him in paradise. He is my hero and i keep his portrait always before me. What a child like innocent face he had with a steely noble character.
