(This story has been published from The Quint’s archives to mark Faiz Ahmad Faiz’s birth anniversary on 13 February.)Across India, citizens have risen in protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act. And they have been singing poet Faiz Ahmad Faiz's iconic song Hum Dekhenge, in hope and defiance.While the poem was famous, it became iconic after 1986 when it became a universal anthem of protest after ghazal singer Iqbal Bano's renderings were smuggled from Pakistan.Here then is a fresh look at protests across the country, with the tune of Hum Dekhenge in the backdrop. Here is the translation:We shall witnessInevitably, we shall witnessthe day that has been promisedthat has been etched on the pages of eternityWhen mountains of tyrannyshall be blown away like cottonwhen beneath our worn feetthe earth's heart shall beatAnd upon the heads of our tormentorslightning shall crackle and crashOnly His name will remainHe, who is both invisible and ever-presentwho is both the spectacle and the beholderAnd the clarion call 'I Am the Truth' shall ringThe truth that is I and that is YouAnd all of God's creatures shall ruleThose who are I, and those who are you.We shall witness, Oh We Shall witness We'll get through this!
