javed jaffery poem

Javed Jaffrey read out a poem about the religious divide in India. He had some immensely powerful words for all Indians. Watch the video here.

As the wave of stories and reports on growing intolerance in India crests, more and more people have started to speak out about whether they think this phenomenon is perceived, or is indeed real.

In this climate of heated debate, beloved Indian actor and comedian Javed Jaffrey recited a few lines of poetry at a recent event. He spoke of nuances, the little things that separate us, the bits of the world that people appropriate that entrench the divide between “us” and “them”. Can a colour be Hindu? Can an animal be Muslim?

Watch him here:

Gaaye Hindu ho gayee
Aur bakra musalman ho gaya !!
