Is This A Democracy? - Poem by MAHMUD HASSAN


Is this a democracy?
Where people can't talk freely
Where discrimination is done
On the basis of religion
On the basis of caste and creed
On the basis of color.

Is this a democracy?
Where guilty is moving freely
Where innocents are being accused
Where innocents are killed
By labeling them as terrorist.

Is this a democracy?
Where people are crying
For getting long awaited justice.
Where they are crying
Because they want to live in peace.

Is this a democracy?
Where its own residents
Are labeled as foreigner.
Where the authority itself
Trying to throw them away.
Is this really a democracy?
