Iqbal grieving about civic intolerance...

Sada-e-Dard (The painful wail) from Bang-e-Dara

Consumed with grief I am, I get relief in no way
O circumambient waters of the Ganges drown me  // whoops

Our land foments excessive mutual enmity
What unity! Our closeness harbors separation

Enmity instead of sincerity is outrageous
Enmity among the same barn’s grains is outrageous
