Bullhe Shah (d. 1758) poetry is considered one of the glories of premodern Punjabi literature. Born in Uch, Punjab, in present-day Pakistan, Bullhe Shah drew profoundly upon Sufi mysticism in his writings. His lyrics, famous for their vivid style and outspoken denunciation of artificial religious divisions, have long been held in affection by Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs and they continue to win audiences today across national boundaries and in the global Punjabi diaspora. Indeed, many young people in South Asia are already acquainted; albeit unknowingly at times; with the iconic eighteenth-century Punjabi poets words through popular musical genres of the twenty-first century.
