Sagar Siddiqui was a prominent Urdu poet of Pakistan, also known as a saint-poet. His real name was Muhammad Akhtar. Sagar was born in 1928 to a middle-class family in Ambala, India. There are very few historical records available about the personal life of Sagar Siddiqui. Sagar himself rarely spoke to anyone in this regard. Most of the available information is based on the statements of witnesses.
Siddiqui was the only son of his parents and spent the early years of his life in Ambala and Saharanpur. He got his early education from his father’s friend Habib Hassan. The young Muhammad Akhtar (Saghar Siddiqui) was very much influenced by his teacher Habib Hassan, and because of him, he became interested in Urdu poetry. Siddiqui Sahib had started reciting poetry in his childhood.
Due to poverty, Sagar proceeded to Amritsar, Punjab in search of work in his boyhood and got a job with a shopkeeper who made wooden combs. He learned to make wooden combs from the shopkeeper. Sagar continued to write poetry while making combs. For some time he used Nasir Hijazi as his pen name but later he adopted the pseudonym of Sagar Siddiqui. At the age of 15, he started participating in poetry recitals regularly in Jalandhar, Ludhiana, and Gurdaspur.
In 1947, when he was 19 years old, he migrated to Pakistan during independence and settled in Lahore. He became very successful by reciting beautiful lyrics in his melodic voice and started receiving much praise from the audience.
Siddiqui chose to stay in cheap hotels instead of living in a house given to the refugees by the government and used to pay rent with the meager money he earned by selling his poems to various magazines. Sometimes he had to sell his poetry to other poets for a few rupees.
Within a decade of coming to Pakistan, he became frustrated because he saw that there was no value in real talent, but corruption and nepotism. In desperation, he turned to morphine and bought it from Lahore hospital guards. As friends and strangers continued to exploit him, Siddiqui sank further into despair and soon had to leave the hotels and live on the streets.
He was often seen around Lahore’s Circular Road and Anarkali Bazaar, Akhbar Market, Aibak Road, Shah Alami, and Data Darbar, and often lit candles and held poems on the sidewalk in its light. To keep themselves warm on winter nights, they used to burn paper lying in the rubbish all around. He continued to write poems, although most of them are lost and unpublished.
He was a Pakistani Urdu poet. On July 19, 1974, the homeless poet was found dead at the age of 46 on a street corner in Lahore. He was buried in Mayani Sahib Cemetery. His dog reportedly died a year later at the same location. Later on, a memorial mausoleum was erected on his grave in Miani Sahib Cemetery, Lahore.
