JAISA HU WAISE REHNE DO MUJHE……

This poem is basically about an orphan who finds himself in the middle of communal riots and the rioters are asking him to which community he belongs to.

Hai hinduo ne mujhe paala…..
ek isa ke pujaari ne sambhaala….
tha ek sikhni ne raasta dikhaayaa….
aur ek muslim ne gir kr uthna sikhaayaa…..
to aaj jab poochchte hai wo mujhse mazab meraa….
bolo main kaise unhe btlaau….
unhe apni duvidhaa kaise…samjhaau…..
ki duniya main lane waalon se kabhi mila nhi……
jab aaya to chhor kr chle gye the wo door khi…..
na btla ske wo mujhe ki tumhaari tarah kise bhai bulaau….
allah ko maanu ya raam ko apna btaau…..
arey na pta hai mujhe ki kaun hu main…..
bas itna jaanta hu…ki behta hai khoon hare ki rho mein…..
to na kabhi socha ki kaun hu main…..
allah. Raam. isa mein se kise apna maanu main……

to aaj jab poochchte hai kiske saatg hu main…..
btaao kya khu main…kya khu main….

kitaabon mein to kuch yu likha hai…..
sachche dil se poojo to aata wo khuda hai….
par use poojna agar dossro ko maarna hai….
to kisi dharm se na mujhe rishta nibhaana hai….
arey aisa hai to na banna hai hafeez aur na pandit mujhe….
na banna hai hafeez aur na pandit mujhe…..
bas jaisa hu waisa rehne do mujhe…waisa rehne do mujhe…

kitaabon mein to sabko bhai kha tha…..
pyaar aur mohabbat ki dastaan kop da tha…..
phir kyun aaj na dikhta hai wo sukh chain….
kyun bhai ko dushman btaate hai ye nain……

agar ab bhi jaanna chaahte ho mera mazab tum….
to na koi jwaab hai dene ke liye….
na kuch samjhaane ke liye….
ek tukda tum lelo….
ek unhe dedo….
bas insaan hu…insaan hi mrne dena mujhe…..
jaisa hu waise rehne do mujhe…waise rehne do mujhe…..
