The Right Word | A Poem by Imtiaz Dharker

The poet persona tries to make us see another aspect of the people supposedly called “terrorist” and “hostile militant”. Some of these are just “freedom fighter” and “guerrilla warrior”. Not necessarily the bad names they are called. Children, martyrs enshrouded in cloaks of humanity — not monsters as they are often portrayed by the press.
