Communal

Who calls you voter friends, who wants your vote?
Look around Netaji’s, how many votes are there!
Looters now loot everything, loot rights!
Raban across the country, political benefits!
People! Or say the Prime Minister?
Whose rights are taken away by whom the interests are!
No, he is interested! Money of the country of birth?
Angel of death mace rule, Saturn’s work is warriors?
The subtle work for the sake of the greater is not the greater,
Communist ‘robbery’ inhuman!
Lalon Shah‘s caged untitled bird,
Bhasanchar‘s upbringing of terrorists!
Communal militants now attack temples.
The name of Jamaat-Shibir is being sold and eaten by Pakistani chicks.
Bureaucrats eat all alcohol urine,
A money whose corruption is diplomacy is his happiness!
If there is no education, the world is full of impurity,
The order of the law in shrine worship is as strict!
How do we want such a state religion?
Who does not insult the crime?
Wake up Muslims!
Wake up Sher-E-Bengal saint where is Arjun-Bheem?
Where is Umar-Haider-Ali, where is your hero?
Where are all your khilji who are Lovely friends?
Whose faith is adorned in the slaughter of the enemy’s army!
Their goal now is Sun-Moon!
When the world is lawless by devils,
Punishment will take a long time!
