Jalib Jalib[edit]

In 2011, Mujahid Barelvi wrote a book in the memory of his old friend and revolutionary poet Habib Jalib called Jalib Jalib published by Jumhoori Publications.[3][4][5][6] Barelvi, being a close friend of the poet, gave an insight into Jalib’s poetry, personality, political struggle, and personal life in the book. He also wrote in detail about his friendship with Habib Jalib, and published almost all of his poems in the book with their history, what inspired Jalib to write his poems, and what his intentions and inspirations behind his poems were.[7]

Mujahid Barelvi has also written several reviews on Habib Jalib's Urdu poems in The Friday Times.[8][9][10]
