Poems at the Karbala Conference, University of Kashmir.

What else do you need from your words, when your words are known for the eulogy of Hussain and the Karbala.  Two of my poems were read at the Karbala Conference, held at the Ibn e Khaldun auditorium, University of Kashmir. The video is on youtube and the original text in this post.

The original poem – hussain taught me love.


After this poem was published on social media, I got numerous queries asking me If I happen to be a Shia. It was astounding to know the prevalence of prejudice that perhaps, if a person writes eulogy for Hussain(Raa), he has to be a Shia. In view of the queries, I wrote my answer in form of a poem – disclaimer.
