An ideology hinged on a majoritarian belief
Upon a diverse pluralistic society impinge
To despots, this hideous exploit alone shall bestow relief
While the nation is in a state of singe

Around plots woven to demolish or lynch
Were thoughts steeped in, blasphemy and intolerance
Yet the rightist ideologues never did wince
As the end justifies the means in their parlance

Exuding triumphalism over electoral gains
Shrouded in patriotic fervour evoked
Promise of a shrine on the agenda reigns
To be built, on a rubble of communal passions stoked

Riding roughshod over mass sentiments outright
Legislating a law, never was so facile
Constitutional tenets confront an obliteration fright
In the face of an opposition docile

Ever since voices of dissent got typecast
Imperative it is to wear patriotism on the sleeve
Stakeholders of an erstwhile state were bypassed
In comatose lies the valley, by the regime deceived

A surge of compassion for persecuted from distant shores
With the exception of Islamist, all shall naturalization gain
A parochial Act causing a nationwide uproar
Hope this uprising restores democratic checks and balances again
