An Ode to Martyr Sarabjeet

Sarabjeet, Sarabjeet, Sarabjeet.
How much time have we spent
reflecting on the fate of this man?
Has that reduced an iota of pain
suffered by the convict
and his family members?

How can Pakistan unilaterally judge a person
not a citizen of their country?
For that matter, no country has the right to judge
a person who is not their citizen.
Transnational citizens can be judged by a court
set up by the United Nations alone.

Think. Think. Think.
For a prejudiced mind can never judge.
So, Pakistan had no right to judge Sarabjeet.

And, for the reported largesse that is showered on the martyred man, 
could we not compensate his family
when he was alive,
so that at least he could find solace
when he was suffering?

Sarabjeet, I cry for you and your family.
I do not know what crime you committed.
Why did you and your family have had to suffer.
Will you still, after departing, continue to feel pain
for your sister and daughters,
and whoever feels and felt for you!

Rulers of Pakistan,
I appeal to you and your citizens
to always remember, Islam means peace, and
forgiveness is a step forward to
Ishwar, Allah or God.

Comments on this Poem

Comment A very heart touching poem."Manvaadhikar Aayog" is trying to stop cruelty & misbehave,yet these incidents are still continuing.What happened with Sarabjeet Singh,we all know.We all must oppose it so that Pakistan may not get courage for inhumanity in future.But our leaders are liberal & ignore it. They spread hands for friendship with Pakistan.Alas! What can be done ? Thanks a lot for good poem,Kundu Ji.
