Religion

Author: Divyang

 

Surviving through the ages,
we excluded it from the clutches of time.
But why should we,
as we leave old stuff behind,
and step ripe, into this modern age?

In the name of religion,
people are no more people, but animals
and cutthroats. It is a tool,
to make people drive trishuls through live guts.
Communities turned onto prey and predators,
all in the name of God.
This makes me wonder,
if religion needs to go.

In the name of religion,
these ‘secular’ politicians buy,
half the crowd with words,
and the other half with money.
This makes me wonder,
if religion needs to go.

The same people who worship the khans,
did not remember their favourite stars,
when they lighted fire,
to a crying Muslim child.
The terror of a baby,
fails to horrify them.
This makes me wonder,
if religion needs to go.

The same people who worship,
the ‘nine devis’, did not flinch,
while molesting ninety devis.
This makes me wonder,
if religion needs to go.

Religion today is a hoax,
and its followers blinded.
It cooks nothing but,
the dish of enmity,
with the stench of death.
This brings me to the cruel reality,
that perhaps,
religion needs to go.
