Who was Abdul Majid Salik ?

ABDUL MAJID SALIK ( 1895-1959 )

Abdul Majid salik was born at Batala in Gurdaspur District of Punjab in 1895. He was an accompalished urdu  poet and a well known journalist  journalist . He was drawn towards  Ahmadiya movement of Punjab  . In 1947 , he moved to Pakistan. His poetic collection 'Raah-o-Rasme Manzilha' was published in 1922. He was the editor of magazines 'Tahzeeb-e-nasvaan', 'phool'. 'Zameendar'. Later Salik was editor of Inqilaab. He also wrote a biography of Allama Iqbal titled “Zikr-i Iqbal”…

Salik was a close friend of Urdu Poet  Jagan Nath Azad.  When salik died ,Azad wrote a touching  poem' Maatam e Salik  '

Parven Kumar Ashakk ( Son of Urdu Poet Kanwal Hoshiarpuri ) from Pathanklote informs :

“Very few people know that Abdul Majid  Salik stayed in my city pathankote also in 1925 and edited  ‘Fanoos ‘a literary magazine. He was from Batala of course but he did stay in pathankot in 1925 1926 this is mentioned in  a book written by shorish kashmiri titled Maulana Zadar Ali khan. This book was  published in mid fifties from  Lahore by Chattan Publications.”

 I quote some couplets of Salik…

Kahin Hum Ko Dikhaa do ek Kiran hi Timtimaati si
Ke jis Din Jagmagaayegaa shabistaan Hum Nahin Hongay..
Agar Maazi Munnawar thhaa kabhi to hum na Thhay Haazir
Jo Mustaqbil Kabhi Hogaa Darkhashaan Hum Nahin Hongay


Bachay Bijliyon Ki Zad se vahi Taayaraan e daana
Jo Kadak Chamak se Pehly Nikal Aaye aashiyaan se
Nahin Kucch samajh Mein Aata Yeh ajeeb Maajara ha
Ki zameen ke Rehnay waalon ko Hidaayat Aasmaan se
