She an innocent young girl
Them the miscreants weaker than her.
For she lives with her self respect
But they live on borrowed respect.
In dignity she moved around in peace
But they are sick minded, against peace.
A proud student she was once of her college
But they reduced her to a victim state.
Unbeknownst to her, she became their prey
while on an errand to recharge her phone.
The two pounced upon her as the evening matured
Tying up her hands and feet tightly secured.
poured kerosene on her and set her on fire
Marvelling at each other for consequences dire.
It was about 9pm in Bangladesh
Birpur area of Narsingdi town.
When Hell attacked in their form
Phoolan Rani was at fault as per them.
Her Hindu identity in her motherland
Was reason enough to burn the girl.
Does any religion pronounce death
and murder in equal measure at par?
Who gave them the right to carry such act
with bold steps cannot be called humans.
Why? I ask, Why? Does Bangladesh let it happen
Why do Hindus feel unprotected and forsaken?
That each day a Hindu or two is simply attacked
beheaded, abused, raped or burnt to death.
Fortunate for Phoolan, she survived
but who understands what she sacrificed?
At 22 years of her youth, her life had just begun
When the couple of men, vicious than a gun.
Does their religion give them a clean chit to kill?
Does their conscience so easily forgive them?
And they think they are the brave ones?
They are cowards hiding behind their veil.
Yes, the veil being a vital part of their faith
is proof enough of their cowardly stealth.
This injustice has to be shunned by all
Speak up if you are a human and protect all.
Humanity for some is on its all time low
Their death too shall come even if slow.
How would you like if your hand got burnt?
Or if in an injury you get hurt?
The pain, the screams of this girl are far bigger
than your imagination as her trauma is greater.
Will she ever trust anyone standing next to her?
Will the world just belong to haters and cowards?
