Charlie Hebdo - Poem by Aftab Alam

Long waited to write,
Mind was spinning web,
Within me, a great fight,
Fear gone with the ebb,
Truth must be brought in notice,
We must measure the width of the river
Like sides of coin,

Wrote about bees,
Wrote whose fault is this?
As a judge if you judge,
Can you judge without fact?
Knowing every thing you‘ll act,

Is teasing a legal right in art?
Is murdering ones sentiment is permitted?
Have you ever seen,
Follower of Islam abused,
To any chosen one -the prophets?
They love Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses,
Joseph, Mother Merry, Jesus and all(PBUT) ………

Earn name and fame and money,
One should not insult the chosen one,
Or pelt a stone to follower,
Killing of innocent or stupid is
Against the humanity- a crime,
To tease and insult for the sake of earning is
Heinous crime because it is provocative,

I condemn the act of provocative cartoon,
It agitated the bees of sweet hives,
They took the life of many lives,
I condemn the killing act,

Whole world must condemn both the acts,
The act of cartoonist, the satanic act
Those who killed is the act of terror,
Mind it, truly speaking, I am hurt
Both are error by human against the Lord
And on earth for its peace loving people

Charlie Hebdo members-
Please don't earn money by rupturing the peace,
If one will throw stone to bees,
It is enjoyment of mad but it is blunder,
It is act of teasing,
You caused the world to suffer,
We lost the Human life..
May their soul rest in peace
May Master guide us to lead peaceful life,

    I do not agree with the taking of human life for reasons of insult as these can be remedied with due apology. The problem lies when one group perceives a view or opinion as an insult and therefore blocks the freedom of others to express their views in their own country. If one does not want to hear or see that kind of freedom in that land (which is not his country) then he should leave and stay in his country where there are no opinions he considers insults. It is that simple. (Report)Reply

    I respect you for the comment.. let you are right..Is leaving country is solution? or one can abuse those who don't belong to the nation? If asked apology then why published again to raise the fund? If any one who insult Christ will I be keep quite? no I will condemn, hurting a religion is a heinous crime..mistake of a single person or a group who put on fire to the entire society is a crime - it is intentional act..yes, I do agree - killing human is also a crime, we don't have right to take life because we can't return the life

    It is heartfelt that you took your own time to do the churning inside before drawing your conclusions. I agree with you when you say: If one will throw stone to bees / It is enjoyment of mad but it is blunder, ... / You caused the world to suffer / We lost the Human life. Please accept my thanks.
