Nationalism yours and mine

If your nationalism is militarization of nation
If your nationalism is piled up dead bodies
If your nationalism is AFSPA
If your nationalism is all about rocks and land
If your nationalism is to treat citizens as outsiders and guests
If your nationalism is all about shape and size of maps
If your nationalism excludes men in flesh and blood
If your nationalism is build around stolen valor
If your nationalism is build around things you never did
If your nationalism demands sacrificing a small for the ‘greater good’
If your nationalism is that some people must die
If your nationalism is to sit in your comfort zones and fan jingoism
If your nationalism is about shutting universities and funding war on people
If your nationalism is about marginalization of the destitute, impoverished, downtrodden and oppressed
If your nationalism is exclusively about about one particular religion, caste, language and culture
If your nationalism is to celebrate human rights violation
If your nationalism is glorification of war
If your nationalism is all about us and them
If your nationalism can only be measured by one’s hatered towards the imagined enemy
If your nationalismis to hide behind the sacrifices of our soldiers
If your nationalism does not includes peace measures to prevent any more soldier deaths
If your nationalism is to curb human rights, free speech and personal liberty in the name of nationalism
If your nationalism is is to stand behind your govt and not your people
If your nationalism is to claim how much you love your country while searching green pastures abroad
Then sorry to say you’re no nationalist but a sadistic coward
who enjoys seeing death and destruction from a safe distance
And I will never be a party to this mass maniac hysteria!
