I completed my Masters in Hindi literature from Allahabad University. Use it to help those who need it. In an act of activism, using his appearances at mushairas and his social media accounts, Pratapgarhi implored Muslims to wear a black band during Eid ul Fitr prayers as a silent protest against the rising hate crimes against the community. Pratapgarhi, who is currently in the process of finishing a book of nazms, said he would be happy to continue in the same vein.
Inhe was invited to a mushaira in Mumbai, where he recited it and a recording was widely-shared, bringing him unexpected fame. The second part of the protest involved mobilising people to donate blood on August 6.

We will donate it. Weekly mushairas are still held in Indian cities and abroad in places with Urdu-speaking diaspora. Jab jab dor patang se katne lagti hai tab tab koi CD batne lagti hai Rahul jeet na jaaye bas is dar se sahib ki GST ghatne lagti hai.
He also talked about mobilising people to lend a helping hand to the families of victims of hate crimes. They stopped short of calling dung the Kohinoor they stayed busy sowing enmity between Hindus and Muslims Although children kept dying in hospitals their attention remained focused on investigating madrasas.
Waseem Rashid, a Delhi-based poet, editor of Urdu portal Sada Today and naazim convenor of mushairas, said that in recent years, poetry has become infused with political themes, reflecting the mood of the nation.
And he has got here without a formal training in Urdu. He believes it can raise awareness among the masses, and he is willing to do it even if it comes at the expense of being marginalised by his peers. He also mobilised his admirers to help people affected by the floods in Bihar in August.
As an example, she quotes a couplet by Dr Rahat Indori, Bollywood lyricist, former Urdu professor and a renowned poet:. When contacted by Scroll.

Is this why there was speculation earlier this year that he might chamdni nominated to the Rajya Sabha by the Aam Aadmi Party? Pratapgarhi counts the legendary poet of the masses, Habib Jalib, as his inspiration.
Although ghazals remain the biggest draw at mushairas, nazms with political and social shavnam also feature heavily in such gatherings. But a mushaira is a lot more than reading shairs, it also encapsulates respect for fellow shayars from whom you learn and who learn from you. Does this social activism mask any political aspirations?

Apart from a steady flow of hate mails and threats, he has also earned the disapproval of some prominent Urdu poets. Despite the presence of other poets, including Altaf Zia, Saba Balrampuri and Chandni Shabnam, the biggest cheer that night was reserved for Pratapgarhi.
Pratapgarhi started participating in mushairas in and the nazm that brought him instant fame was Madrasa. Pratapgarhi has now written over nazms, including Filisteen about the shannam of PalestiniansNajeeb about the disappearance of JNU student Najeeb Ahmedand Umar about the victims of mob lynchings.
He says that Munawwar Rana, one of the most famous contemporary Urdu poets, has refused to share a stage with him. Pratapgarhi has had his fair share of critics. Channdi passed away in but his nazms still ring true in the current political climates of Pakistan and India.
He travels with an entourage and arrives at his own convenience, unlike the other invitees, which is disrespectful to the institution of mushairas. Jalib earned fame for his biting commentary on the state of affairs in Pakistan following the Partition of India.
Channdni to Pratapgarhi, the nazm was inspired by the intense media focus on madrasas — owing to a spate of terror attacks.

The poem on victims of lynchings was completed as I walked towards the stage. The tradition of mushairas has been traced back to the time of Amir Shabna, and its patronage during the Mughal era is well-documented. These are the lines with which Imran Pratapgarhi began his mushaira session on a cold November night at Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi, and the crowd of over 30, people — including the chief guest, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal — broke into rapturous applause.
He termed the protest Gandhigiri-I.
