Miya main kaisa Musalman hoon?
I am that Musalman who is being asked
Again and again
Again and again
If I am from Pakistan
When I say
My name is Ajmal

I am that Musalman
For whom it doesn’t make a difference
If I am a Khoja, Bohra Sunni or a Shia
But during frisking
If my name is asked
I say my name is Ajmal
Then they ask
If I am from Pakistan

I am that Musalman
Their bodies are yet to be found in Gujarat
I am that Musalman
Who were burned
In Bhiwandi
In Moradabad
In Bhagalpur
In Bombay
In Gujarat
In Muzaffarnagar
In Kokrajhar
And many more

I am that Musalman
His name is Afzal Guru
I am that Musalman
His name is Yaqub Memon
I am that Musalman
His name is Muhammed Aqklaq
I am that Musalman
Her name is Ishrat Jahan
I am that Musalman
His name Najeeb Ahmed
I am that Musalman
His name is Abdul Nazer Mahdani

I am that Musalman
Who will be acquitted just before he dies
Or see no light even after death
I am that Musalman
Who is outnumbered in your jails
I am that Musalman
Who is killed in fake encounters
I am that Musalman
Who kills his life as an undertrial

I am that Musalman numbers
Which appear in the reports of Sachar
I am that Musalman percentage
That you get scared of in census
I am that Muslim woman
Who is shown as birthrates in your tables
I am that Musalman
Who is unemployed
I am that Musalman
Who is illiterate
I am that Musalman
Who is poor and hungry

I am that Musalman
Who you think is a vote bank
I am that Musalman
Who you think is dirty
I am that Musalman
Who eats beef
I am that Musalman
Who is Love jihadi
I am that Musalman
Who you think is fanatic
I am that Musalman
Who you think is a terrorist

Miya main kaisa Musalman hoon?
I am that Musalman
Who is forced to sing Vande Mataram
I am that Musalman who has to celebrate
Sreekrishna Jayanthi
I am that Musalman who will hold the tricolour
In order to be a Hindustani
I am that Musalman who is being asked
Again and again
If I am a Pakistani
I am that Musalman who is made to think
I am an Hindustani Musalman
Or constantly being threatened
Will be sent to Pakistan.
