Correction to common literary mistake - 2

99% of people think that following sher belongs to Allama Iqbal

Tundiye-baad-mukhalif se na ghabra aye uqab
Ye to   chalti   hai  tujhe  ooncha urane ke liye

This sher in actuality belongs to a relatively unknown poet - Syed Sadiq Hussain Shah Qazmi. This is from his collection "barg-e-sabz". This sher is written on his kutba. He died on May 4, 1989. He said this sher early in his career and due to mention of uqab, people connect it with Iqbal.
