Prominent Urdu poet Rahat Indori passed away on Tuesday. He was aged 70. Indori, who had tested positive for coronavirus, suffered two heart attacks.

“He was admitted to hospital on Sunday, after testing positive for Covid-19,” said Dr Vinod Bhandari of Sri Aurobindo Hospital. “He had 60% pneumonia.”

Indori was best known for his powerful couplets which are full of resistance. Here are a few from one of his famous gazals:

Hamare Munh Se Jo Nikley, Wohi Sadaqat Hai
Hamare Munh Me Tumhari Zubaan Thodi Hai

Jo Aaj Sahib-e-Masnad Hain Kal Nahi Honge
Kiraaye-dar Hain, Zaati Makaan Thodi Hai

Sabhi Ka Khoon Hai Shamil Yahan Ki Mitti Me
Kisi Ke Baap Ka Hindustaa’n Thodi Hai
