The above professional translation was by Dr. Naim Siddiqui from the official Iqbal site. A more literal translation by moi: I too was present there and could not hold my tongue When the Lord ordered the mullah to Paradise! Said I, "Lord! Forgive my boldness but He will not like the houris and the flasks of wine Paradise is not the place of 'He said' and 'They said' Argument and disputation is this pious man's trade! To bring disunity to the nation and the people is his work And Paradise contains neither mosque, nor church, nor temple!"
