Muslim Is Our Common Identity But Terror The Label

Hum bhi Hindustani Musalman hain !

Sadique, my name
A skull cap and lower above the ankles
Is my identity,
Who cares of the brain beneath my skull?
For them, all that matters is the cap on my head.

Aatif, my name
My body a potential bomb, terror my label
Who cares of the warmth of my body?
For them, it’s just a potential bomb covered under the lower, Above my ankles.

Yasin, my name
My beard, a mark of a bygone culture
Who cares about a face wrapped under it?
And the innocence of adolescence on it
For them, my eyes can only beam violence

Muslim, is the common identity
That binds us together
And terror, the label.
