First they came for...

First they came for the Sikhs, and I didn't speak up,
because I wasn't a Sikh.
Then they came for the Muslims, and I didn't speak up,
because I wasn't a Muslim.
Then they came for the Christians, and I didn't speak up,
because I wasn't a Christian.
Then they came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up,
because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Liberal Hindus, and I didn't speak up,
for I was a conservative Hindu.
Then they came for the secularists,and I didn't speak up,
for I wasn't a secularist.
Then they came for the humanists,and I didn't speak up,
for I wasn't a humanist.
Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left
to speak up for me.

I found this poem too significant in our situation where we are facing so many problems like terrorism, naxalism, fundamentalism..
