Protest against double standards


A bearded sikh is practising
his faith, you'll say
but a bearded muslim is
extremist and has gone astray.
A pious nun can be covered
from head to toe
but a covered muslim girl
is oppressed you know.
Respect for western woman
when she stays at home to look her child,
same is done by muslim woman
then from outer world she is exiled.
In schools and colleges
semi nude girls are allowed
but with unjust laws
a covered muslim girl is scared and cowed.
A jew kills someone then case
against a criminal is filed.
but when a muslim does any crime
then Islam goes under trial.
For acts of Hitler
christianity is not blamed
then why with every bomb blast
hatred against Islam is flamed.
When a palestinian takes gun against oppression
terrorist you shout and call
but when blood is spilt for oil and wealth
why your voices are not heard at all.
when an imperfect driver bangs a perfect car
no sane blames the car.
then why for vicious acts of few muslims
Islam is put behind bars.
O media! O world!
why you hate why you detest.
against this double standards
I voice my strong protest.
