They fly very high like the birds

Those who are frightened of knowledge
How little they are in stature
They talk about the benevolence of God
Who tells you to follow the path of knowledge
They do not follow the path of knowledge
There should be no books in the hands
And no pens in the fingers
Neither will they be able to write their name
They do not have the etiquette of feminism
Those who have become scared of innocent little girls
You go in the towns and cities and announce that
You don’t want these girls because they fly very high like the birds
We don’t want these girls
They are in schools, they are in offices and they have the knowledge
And they come to know about Islam
We don’t want them to know about Islam
There is girl shining with radiance and great morality who understands Islam
And it has become her place to understand about Islam
This is the way
And this is the knowledge
The people who got scared of those little innocent girls
How little they are themselves
Go and announce in every city and square
Have hope and belief
Go into the town squares and the cities
Have hope and have faith
The people who got scared of little girls
How little they are in stature
