Twenty-ninth death anniversary of revolutionary poet Habib Jalib is being observed today (Saturday).
Born on 24th March, 1928 in Hoshiarpur district of Indian Punjab, Habib Jalib touched the hearts of people through his simple yet attractive style.
He is among the most influential Urdu poets in Pakistan, who supported democratic ideals and expressively opposed martial laws and authoritarian rule.
His famous collections include Sar-e-Maqtal, Zikr Behte Khoon Ka, Gumbad-e-Bedar and Kulyaat-e-Habib Jalib.
Habib Jalib died this day in 1993 in Lahore.
