Hairat hoti hai Karachi walon key sabr aur bardasht par,
Itna kuch sehtay hain, itney zulm jhailtey hain,
Lekin phir bhi, har subah phir jaag uthtey hain,
Ik nai umeed sey, ik nai justaju sey.
Tou phir maan lo, in key dilon meh jo aag jalti hai,
Iss ko bujhana na mumkin hai.
Aren’t you surprised at the patience and tolerance of the people of Karachi?
They endure so much cruelty, withstand injustice.
And yet, every morning, they rise again,
With a new hope, with a new quest.
And you have to admit, the fire that burns in their hearts,
Can not be extinguished.
