Josh Mahilabadi, popularly known as Shayar-e-Inqalab, was a Pakistani poet who wrote over 100,000 couplets and more than 1000 rubaiyat. He was an Indian citizen until 1956 when he emigrated to Pakistan. He founded a magazine called Kaleem, in which he wrote in favour of Indian independence. His inspiring poem Hussain aur Inquilab (Hussain and Revolution) won him the title of ‘Shaair-e-Inquilaab’ or ‘Poet of the Revolution’.
Meanwhile, PM Modi announced the Scheme for Mentoring Young Authors under India@75 Project in the latest Mann ki Baat episode to encourage young writers across the country.
