Change Them as Humans

POETRY FORMAT, 29 Dec 2014

Dr. M. Ashaq Raza – TRANSCEND Media Service

A poem written on conversions especially in India.

Don’t change their religion
Change them, if you can
To be good humans

Improve their conditions
Without any conditions
Give them jobs, education
Work for poverty alleviation

Why charity after conversion
Why no sympathy as humans
Beautiful is every religion
Have we if a believer vision

Served the purpose of ALL religions
Make if we ourselves good humans
So unnecessary are conversions
Change them, just as humans

Dr. M. Ashaq Raza is a peace worker and Human Rights Activist based in Jammu, India.
