Is this the end? 

The following poem are my personal views. I don’t follow any particular school of thought. I apologise in advance if hurt anyone’s sentiment in these words. 
I am sorry. 

खाता है वो साग, वही खाता है मास,
पहनके के वही कुर्ता, जाता है मस्जिद या कृष्ण दरबार,
वो पूजता है एशु को, कभी कोरान को,
बच्चे, बूढ़े, औरत या हो कोई जवान,
चेहरा नहीं होता है उसका,
मज़हब क्या है उसका,
क्या है वो इंसान,
तबाही का सामान लेके, जो निकलते हैं बेख़ोफ,
क्या है वो इंसान,
रखवाले क्या बनते हो ईश्वर के,
क्या बच्चें करते है उसका जीना बेहाल,
फिर भी गिराते हो मस्जिद, मंदिर या कोई गिरजाघर,
क्या थी यही रखवाली, क्या था यही जिहाद,
अल्लाह भी है ख़ौफ़ मैं तेरे,
ज़लज़ले की हो चुकी शुरुआत,
भूख, भरष्टाचारी, ग़रीबी, अराजकता का है कैसा मायाजाल,
लोभियों के कंधों पे सवार होके आएगा एक दिन कोहराम,
आस टूटेगी, होगी ज़िन्दगी नीलाम,
तब शायद समझेगा इंसान,
उस मज़हब का क्या कीज़िएगा,
जब ख़त्म हो जाएगा इंसान।

Once again an English translation for the English readers. I wish you could read this one in Hindi. 

He eats spinach, he eats meat,
Wearing the same cloth, he visits a mosque or a temple,
Worships the the Christ, and sometimes the Quran,
Kids, elderly, women or the youth,
He has no face,
What is his religion.
Is he a man,
With instruments of destruction, he runs amok,
Is he a man,
He protects God,
Do kids ever cause god any harm,
Still he demolishes mosques or churches,
Is this the protection, is this jihad,
Allah fears at his creation,
Apocalypse has just begun,
Hunger, corruption, poverty, anarchy are a great web,
Riding the shoulder of the greedy will come the doom,
Hope will be lost, life will be sold,
Then maybe the man may understand,
What will the religion serve,
When there would be no man…
