English Poem: Ajmal Kasab

Your face is, one of the few faces

That came out from ….

        the quagmire of sabotage,

        the blind-well of conviction,

        the ruins of wickedness.

You are still alive….

And will continue to be so

God knows for how long!

You have no religion, no faith

But certainly, you can be, at times

A Muslim, a Hindu, a Christian, a Jew

The fact of the facts is….

You are neither a human, nor a beast

Just a Challenger for Humanity!

    It is indeed a heart touching creation of Mr. Faheem who extends the great message of love & harmony among all human being. Terrorism and killings are the game of Devils & an inhuman act. My sincere Congratulations to the Dailjiworld & Mr. Faheem Javeed for the fine presentation of poetic feelings.

    The real, and the perfect expression by Mr.Faheem Javed. Terrorist have no relegion, no faith and they are neither human. Well done brother your poem have message to those criminals together with  a beautiful message to all those who blame religions rather than the culprits. Infact human can be superior to angels if they live like a true human being and they can be worst than animals if they fall from the humanity.

    MashaAllah....the poem is timely one!.The terrorist is anti-human, and Islam or any religion cannot be shelter, even a bit shade,for such bloodsuckers.Poisoned with dangerous ideology-deviated from the real teachings of respective religion-they are not hesitant to resort to any type of crimes against humanity in the form of rape,mass-killing, porgrom etc as committed in Gujarat, Kandheval ect., trigerring of blasts and shedding of blood pool as occurred in Mumbai in 93, Malegoan in 2008, the recent attack in Mumabi and other places.These villains defineilty lose their identity to be called as "Humans" and have no place in the human society....... Regards, P.A.HameedPadubidri Riyadh

    Terrorism is definitely a great challenge for humanity. Faheem Jawaid has rightly mentioned its origin, and the way he has assessed terrorism is just remarkable. Frankly, poets are the real intellectuals. Good Work Faheem Jawaid.
