Chapter 6 : Altaf Hussain Hali

Hoti nahi dua qubool tark-e-ishq ki..

Dil chahta na ho.. toh dua mein asar kahan..

ہوتی نہیں قبول دوا ترک عشق کی 

دل چاہتا نا ہو تو دوا میں اثر کہاں 

होती नहीं क़ुबूल दुआ तर्क-ए-इश्क़ की

दिल चाहता न हो तो ज़बाँ में असर कहाँ


Our 6th episode is dedicated to Altaf Hussain Hali.

Aao Mehfi Sajayein
