To a Muslim Assalam to a Hindu Ram Ram


I want to die at the place of my birth,
No soil is better than that soil on this earth,
Colors of that soil have a rainbow in it,
Any other soil for me is misfit,
Smell of that soil inspires my soul,
Everything of that soil suits me as a whole.
But I know I can't go there,
It's almost same I live now where,
The culture of this soil is alike and same,
Whom should I name and whom I blame,
For the walls we built for the wars we fought,
Were short sightedness and narrow minded thought,
These are the questions to be answered in future,
Nobody could divide our ancient culture,
Music of Khusro and message of Nizam,
To a Muslim Assalam to a Hindu Ram Ram.

    A Lovely Patriotic write......Beautiful lines...I want to die at the place of my birth,
    No soil is better than that soil on this earth,
    No class, caste, religion can ever separate us as long as Humanity is present in us......

    Beautiful message of peace and love can be seen through these words....
    Music of Khusro and message of Nizam,
    To a Muslim Assalam to a Hindu Ram Ram.

    Akhta Vai - we fought for our freedom being bunched together shoulder to shoulder and the freedom came.But what a stupidity next, - in the name of religion we are separated from each other! ! ! So nonsense we are, to be given into that cheap sentiment.... resulting loosing our land, property, friends, peace everything. And a very big society is suffering with the blisters of Divide And Rule Policy . (Report) Reply

    A very secular and broad outlook on life and people! How nice if the world were peopled with men of this thinking! How much of bloodshed and atrocities could have been averted if people could step out of the rigidities of narrow regionalism and religious bigotism! I salute you Akhtar ji for the fine spirit in you! A great write in beautiful rhymes. A 10 (Report) Reply

    This beautiful message of peace and fraternity should be learned at first.When this Universe was created there's no division of caste, creed and community.But, we divide, we fight and quarrel on silly matter.To me the best lines are- - - - - Music of Khusro and message of Nizam,

    You are so write Akhtar ji. Our culture, our food, our language our cloths all are so intertwined. This division caused so much pain for all. I noticed you were born in Gorakhpour. I do hope you can visit you home place some time. Living so far away from home land I share your sentiments with all my heart. (Report) Reply

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
