An Ode to the Defenders of Adeyzai

with one comment

The Lashkar at Adeyzai has thwarted the march of the Taliban towards Peshawar. This tiny village near Peshawar has been a target for the Taliban for a long time now. Their leaders have paid in blood for standing up to the Taliban, their women and children are also not spared. These guys are fighting our war, a thankless cause, but amazingly this poem, written by Fazal Hadi from Adeyzai, has no sarcasm for the rest of us, only pride in their own unflinching stand. Looking for true Pakhtun resistance? then this is it. If you dont know who Dilawar and Haji Malik are, then that in itself is a measure of the blackout that our media has on portraying the cause of these sons of the soil.

Adeyzai: The Ambassadors of Peace


We live by our honor and they call us the brave

We are the ambassadors of peace from Adeyzai

 

Why are they bringing the smoke of gunpowder to us?

May God destroy those who bring war to this village

As long as valiant ones like Dilawar are alive

The blood of Ahmad and Malik will not go wasted

We are the pride of our nation and they call us the gallant ones

We are the ambassadors of peace from Adeyzai

History is witness that we haven’t succumbed to any invader

We will never tolerate any injustice done to the Adeyzai

If we are not harming anyone, then how could we let someone harm us?

We will never allow terror to prevail in our beloved village

We are ready to die for each other, they call us the indomitable

We are the ambassadors of peace from Adeyzai

We have lost our youth and elders in these bombings

Even our children were lost to the smoke of gunpowder

Our shops and houses were burnt down during the night

Our belongings and peace lost to mere bomb pellets

We are burning in the fires of revenge, and some even call us crazy

We are the ambassadors of peace from Adeyzai

I salute your efforts and resolve to bring peace

O my valiant villagers, I salute your passion

You have raised our head high among the Khalil-Mohmands

I Hadi, salute the tribe of Adeyzai

In history, we will be remembered as the lions of this land

We are the ambassadors of peace from Adeyzai

 

We live by our honor and they call us the brave

We are the ambassadors of peace from Adeyzai
