Whom Should I Blame
Whom Should I Blame!
They say Pakistani terrorists attacked the Sunjwan Army Camp
While a martyr's wife cries aloud in a clip
"Su nav moar ne mujahidav , su haav moar army. Ba haav aeses teth...!Mujahid nav heken toad achith"
He was not killed by Mujahids, army killed him. I was there...!Mujahids can't enter there.
Whom should I believe, who is the liar?
Was my dead neighbor really spying for Indian army
Or it was some old 'Ranjish'!
Who killed Dr Goru!
Who killed Moulvi Farooq!
Who killed Jaleel!
Who bouchered the Chattisingpora Sikhs!
Why, our elderly Mukdam was tortured to death by army?
Who dragged the poor farmer's son to guerrilla warfare?
Kashmiris, known for their kindness, are slaughtering each other with knives;
Shooting at each other as hunting a goose!
There are a hundred questions and more.
Whom should I blame!
India? Pakistan? Or my self! Or none but the destiny!
Mughals? Mountbatten? Or Hari Singh?
Or the mad in love Qabayals who had raided us!
Why a border is dividing us into two!
Separating us--families and friends.
Let's go and destroy it with spades and hoe .
Whistle, and beat the drum,
And dance--for hours.
And declare the day as 'Freedom Festival'.
