Dear Rohingya: A call to the believers… a poem by Saqib Majid


Image “at a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh” (

Dear Brethren of ours,

I feel at loss and at shame;

That your carcasses line the street

Like the struck pins of a bowling game..


Like rodents they treat you,

The Myanmar military leaders;

Forced slavery on roads,

Rapes, tortures, land seizures!

Yet, there is barely a sound,

So far from an upheaval;

The media blackout in your regions

Oh, how your oppressors are so evil !!


As a Muslim from afar,

Feel , I am your kindred,

Our sorrow is not ajar !

Oh look !

brutal permission you need

even for Nikah !!

And when a child they expect,

The military, woefully adept

That they are forced to have their faces

And the abdomens checked !


They tax you even to breathe,

Whole graveyards are sieged,

Oh forgotten Ummah,

You are in desperate need,

When you cross the border to find retreat,

There is no solace on the street

Sent back by the Dhaka government;

Despite brethren in belief ..

Sending forces to halt them at the border,

Yet supporting the sham United Nations,

With such will and ease!


Backstabbing western slaves

A woeful feature of our days,

The skies shalt grey

And the blood will spray,

Yet In the senates and chambers,

They will sit unfazed..


Oh youthful brethren,

Let’s shed light on what’s right:

We are all a homeless people

Desecrated on sight !

But we have Allah on our side,

And his system clear as ice !

Raise the call today for change,

So that the oppressed are behind the Caliph

Back alas,

At home again


Saqib Majid
