salaam wale kum
they greet
as you pass them
muslim beggars on the street
their fate cursed they could not cheat
the blind boy of bandra bazar road..
a heart without a heart beat
a masjid has paid for his eye operation
so the old man begs on his beat
dust and heat blistered feet
the poor muslims have a raw deal I repeat

on bakra idd the ostentatious
buy goats rs 100000 a piece
but a showy sacrifice
that which the poor tease
build madrsas build new masjid
but poor life has a short lease
an empty stomach false hopes to please
going to mecca madina dreams that cease
dying standing on the crease
head bowed on bent knees
waiting for the final release
muslim malfunctional dysfunctional society
a cancerous social disease
floudering dilemma of
walking on a tight rope
of a treacheorous trapeze
the poor muslims of india
forget political parties
even rich muslims do not appease

He has been operated by fiancial help from some good samaritan, but he still begs, being a poor Muslim is a tough one...Ramzan continues, the Mullahs lackeys search for suckers with their receipt books, new Mosqoes new Madrssas and life goes on...
These are beggars from the Sunni community.
