The Sorry State of Mughal Poet Laureate Sheikh Ibrahim Zauq’s Grave in Delhi’s Paharganj

“Sir where will I find Sheikh Ibrahim Zauq’s grave here”

“Next to the KoodaKatta” (rubbish dump)

Kaun jaye Zauq” par Dilli ki galiyan chhod kar

Dilli see where Zauq sleeps

Tho I should thank God for smaller mercies. A public lavatory was made on his grave. Thanks to efforts of Firoz Bakht at least that was removed & a memorial built in its place.

It’s called yaadgar e Zauq as no one knows where original grave was
