Making Muslims invisible

Take away my hijab
Take away my turban
Take away my sari
Take away my chadar
Take away my skull cap
Take away my beard
Take away my lungi
Take away my dupatta
Take away my ghunghat
Take away my tongue
Take away my shed
Take away my land
Take away my bread
Take away my book
Take away my look
Take away my name
Take away my vote
Differences must go
Diversities must go
Oneness must be wired
Into India’s veins

At home or outside
We have strict national codes
Built on our guruji’s desires
So, eat, wear, and talk
As our codes dictate
Don’t try to deviate
We have intellectual mobs
To put you in life-cell,
We have lumpen mobs
To kill you in the open street.

Dress as we dictate
Say what we dictate
Eat what we dictate
Live, if you wish,
As a slave

I write because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, said George Orwell. As a writer, I never kowtow to the whims and dictates of the sacred godmen or godwomen, the political bigots and hypocrites, dealers of laymen, the dishonest and self-serving intellectuals, traders of religions, the betrayers of ‘other’ Indians who eke out a living by their sweat, who are living in fear for being lynched for this and that.
