Hanging Political Or Apolitical - Poem by Bashyam Narayanan

Hanging political or apolitical?
The mastermind
Behind an attack on Parliament house was hanged
He is a terrorist aider, terrorism promoter
And judicially the punishment was so held
He deserves this
But, nothing to rejoice over this punishment
Let us not at least question this
As to whether the decision is political or apolitical
People who question this
Are not doing any good for the country
They may think
The attempt will prove
Their patriotism
What is likely to happen is that
Such questioning will boost terrorism indirectly
Reason being that
Terrorists are given to believe that
In this country action against terrorism
Will be questioned
And so the governance
Will hesitate to act against such activities
So have your go and damage
True, not all decisions are apolitical
This decision may also be a political one
But discussing this in the open
Will weaken our confidence against
Curbing terrorism
The harm that will descend
On this great democracy
Would be more poisonous
Than what terrorists can do
Than what terrorism can do
So let there descend wisdom on those
Who qualify actions of Government
To the extent that
Actions attempted against terrorism
Stay not judged
