Jawad Ahmad releases song ‘Kisana’ for Indian farmers
Singer Jawad Ahmad released a song titled ‘Kisana’ for Indian farmers who have been protesting for over a period of two months camped at the Delhi-Haryana border demanding the repeal of three Farm Laws introduced by the Indian Central government of BJB.
The three Farm Laws created outrage and anger among farmers of Indian Punjab and Haryana and Uttar Pradesh who camped outside the Indian capital along with their tractors, trolley, families and friends making it one of the biggest andholen (protest) in India’s history.
Jawad Ahmed said he made the video after seeing how the farmers’ movement in India is being recognised across the world.
“KISANA is a revolutionary song for peasants of the world, to inspire and motivate them to struggle for their rights. It is a dedication by Jawad Ahmad to all the global peasant movements,” he further said.
The lyrics are comprised upon the poetry of Faiz Ahmad Faiz and also written by the singer himself. The music of the video is composed by Sher Ali Bagga.
The lyrics of the song say,’Uth Utaan Nu Kisana Hunn Tu Jeena Aay, Polia Tu Jag Da Ann Data Teri Sohni Tarti Maata Tu Jag Da Tu Jag Da Palan Haar Hunn Tu Jeena Aay (asking peasants to rise and that they are the providers of the world).
Jawad Ahmed is also chairman of Barabri Party Pakistan.
In the latest update, the international media reported, Indian Supreme Court on Tuesday pressed pause on the laws enacted in September in a huge blow to the government.
The top court also said a committee of agricultural experts would take over negotiations with farmers to end the crisis, and called it a "victory of fair play". "We are staying three farm laws until further orders," Chief Justice SA Bobde said, announcing the order.
