Mehwish Hayat Gets Trolled For Misquoting Allama Muhammad Iqbal
The poetry, she captioned her picture with, was attributed to Allama Muhammad Iqbal in the tweet.
Just like all of us, Mehwish Hayat is quite active on social media these days. The actress has been sharing pictures with some amazing poetry.
But this time, the actress got it completely wrong when she posted a picture of herself with some poetry. The poetry, she captioned her picture with, was attributed to Allama Muhammad Iqbal in the tweet.
ہر شیشہ ٹوٹ جاتا ہے پتھر ک چوٹ سے
پتھر ہی ٹوٹ جاۓ ، وہ شیشہ تلاش کر ۔۔
ہر شخص جل رہا ہے عداوت کی آگ میں
اُس آگ کو بجھادے، وہ پانی تلاش کر ۔۔
سجدوں سے تیرے کیا ہوا صدیاں گذر گئیں
دنیا تری بدل دے ، وہ سجدہ تلاش کر !

A number of Twitter users pointed out her mistake of attributing the poetry to the Great poet. The verses are written by Muhammad Ismail.
یہ علامہ اقبال کی شاعری نہیں ھے
تصحیح کیجئے #teamksr

This is NOT by Allama Iqbal.
Allama Iqbal's poetry is of very high literary quality. Unfortunately Pakistanis now a days haven't read him and can't recognize that this (what you have shared) is some low-level poetry.

Mehwish Hayat later on admitted her mistake but put all the blame on Google.
“Correction, I have been reliably informed that these verses attributed to Allama Iqbal are in fact by Muhammed Ismail . Proves google is not always a reliable source,” she wrote.

However, Twitter was not going to spare her and it did what it does best i.e Trolling. Mehwish Hayat severely got trolled for mistake.
Here’s How She Got Trolled:
It also shows Ur utter lack of understanding –zooq– in Urdu poetry.
Hmm, Well, beautiful girls don't need that anyway.

Ma'am Google is just a search Engine, it is never a source of the contents. It merely searches and prioritizes the sources of info you are looking for !!!
