They are con­stantly cre­at­ing bar­ri­ers on the ba­sis of re­li­gion and gen­der. Sec­u­lar­ism to bacha hi nai hai du­niya me. Peo­ple should re­alise that ev­ery­one is free to prac­tice what­ever re­li­gion they want, and that they should treat fel­low hu­mans with love and re­spect. woh janta ko batayein jo bhi galat kam ho raha hain. ( It’s their duty to make peo­ple aware about to­day’s world) In my song, I nar­rate the story of a man, who loses his fam­ily twice in a life­time. Once dur­ing the riots of 1947 and then, 37 years later, dur­ing the riots of 1984. This is what I want to talk about. The ha­tred is spread­ing ev­ery­where, and we have to stop it.
