All that you need
Love is all that you need
As formidable weapon to yield
And cater all kinds of people
To feel at home with no trouble
Love can be provided from not books alone
But from the true spirit of preaching if done
It strengthens the tolerance for fellow brethrens
Who live with different back ground and share the concern
Almost all countries are coming up with new out look and front
People from all walks of life and countries bear the brunt
Little spark of hatred makes their life miserable
The message of carnage is spread like wild fire by network cable
It is useless to dwell at length about religious intolerance
Not a word in disrespect is to be spoken even by chance
It creates bitterness and calls for immediate flare up and hatred
It becomes almost impossible to retrieve the old harmony thread
I have seen many friends sticking to rigid stand
They must bear in mind and truly understand
That faith is an individual matter and concern
It should never cause any kind of mental harassment in turn
"You see and observe each word spoken"
"They are having some substance and not merely as token"
Sight a single instance where any book suggests spread of violence
Not a word to that effect can be found in any sentence
We come across the term "holy crusade"
Where it had been called upon people in past to wade
To protect the religion and its people from atrocity
Provocative gesture was never to be allowed on the name of almighty
The past can not and should not form present trend
It has brought message on fore to treat neighbors as friends
If neighbor is not looked after well or is unhappy
That it is always considered as curse by the almighty
