The Poem of the Month (April, 2009): RELIGION & INJUSTICE

_
Religion & Injustice

In the name of religion --
There can also be the most naked display of power and arrogance.
Lawlessness
Revenge
Murder
Injustice
-- all these follow automatically.

Religion does not guide him,
But religion becomes the vehicle of injustice in the hands of the perpetrator.
Negativity dominates, positivity recedes to the background.

The victim: the weak, the voiceless, the powerless.

If you want, you may watch this gruesome video to see how religion is used to perpetrate injustice. (Warning: sensitive and weak-hearted persons should not see this video)
