We are 300 Rohingya Muslims

We are 300
Out of 740000,
Fled from the land of Buddha, Myanmar
Buddha, you worship at home and outside
Under the sun and the moon

In August 2017
Our women were raped,
Our men killed,
Our huts torched,
The world closely watched
Genocide of our race
As it is watching the massacre
Of Palestine people

Bangladesh refused to take us
And our Indonesian brothers
Warning us of deaths
If we land at their docks

After weeks at Andaman sea
Without food and water,
We, along with our
Dying mates and children
Have arrived at Lamreh village,
At Blang Raya village
But our purified Islamic brothers
Will not let us stay in their lands

The world labelled us ‘refugee’,
In Allah’s wide land, and sea and sky
We are pariahs, we are
Ways of profits for traffickers
Columnists still relish our survival feats!

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.
