The Lady Said It - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

A couple was going to Kolkata
By Rajdhani train 2nd AC
After boarding.... madam noticed
two Muslim men sitting
opposite to their seats
Tall, healthy figure, long beard
Wife whispered to husband
'I am in fear
They look like terrorists
Please go to the train manager
And change our seats immediately'.
That day the train was not tight
The TTE replaced them
in another compartment.
And asked the lady
Why you are frightening unnecessarily
They are religious Muslim.
..... the lady said
I know sir
All the Muslims are not terrorist
But all the terrorists are Muslim
I did it for my safety.

    Unfortunately, you can't tell who is the bad guy these days, unless he is brandishing a gun or a knife. Crazy people are popping up everwhere. Shootings are getting very common in the news. TFS (Report) Reply
