They have the number,
They have the majority,
Time to wake up from slumber,
Time to wreak up their bigotry.
Stopping ’em from repeating historic blunder.
Stopping from burning the nation’s identity to fuel their politics.
Our silence is assumed to be an ideological surrender.
Let dissent be exhumed to fight these hypocrites.
Why only those three countries?
Why not all neighbourhood religious minorities?
If you say ‘they’ have 54 other choices to choose a new country,
Isn’t that in line with Jinnha’s two-nation-theory?
India was always secular,
It didn’t become one in 1947,
We never discriminated in name religion,
India ever demonstrated peace,
They want a Pakistan’s clone, a Hindu Rashtra,
So-called patriots are tearing the national legacy.
But we are the followers of the great secular king of Maharashtra,
Maharaj, Chhatrapati Shivaji.
