Chains of insanity

 

 

Where an abode of education

Becomes a terror-stricken  location,

What more can prevail except barbarism

And mindless bigotry and fanaticism..?

 

The cowards have no strength to fight

The mighty imperialist State

They pounce on women and little children

To exhibit their power and domination…

 

Their hue and cry of patriotism, nationalism

And allegiance to islamic fundamentalism

Is nothing but spreading sham anarchism

Attracting from the world, severe criticism

 

They have lost the tenets of humanity –

The basic teachings of any religiosity –

They cannot win people’s confidence

By perpetrating continuous violence
