Hanuz Dilli Dur Ast..

The new King of muslim India had got some displeasure with the great
Sufi saint. So before going to the capital city Delhi, he sent a
message to that Sufi to leave the city.

The Sufi sent a message in reply that 'still the capital is far away' - ہنوز دلی دور است .

The King started a march with his fellows to the capital. On the way,
he was killed by his own son in pursuit of kingship!

So he could never reach the capital!
