Have been reading Sahir Ludhyanvi’s poetry. Am stuck for the meaning of the first line of the couplet:
!میں سمجھتا ہوں تقدس کو تمدن کا فریب
تم رسومات کو ایمان بناتی کیوں ہو؟
Grateful for help.

    I consider sanctity a deception of society
    Why do you make customs/rituals your belief

    i.e the concept of sanctity/holiness is a deception created by society/civilisation.
