    Voices for Humanity: Against War & Against Inequality (Poetry)

    Voices for Humanity: Against War & Against Inequality (Poetry)

    First published: Mar’22, republished: Oct’23;

    This episode is a special edition of poetry, "Voices for Humanity" put together under the sad backdrop of war, in March’22. As the world reels from news of the past week, we have put out a call for voices to express support for humanitarianism - to promote peace, and to promote equality. 
    The poems that we have received from members highlight the sadness and tragedy of war, and also of an inequitable attitude to war that some regions of the world face, and have been written with the intention of increasing awareness and understanding  to promote peace and equality - for everyone in the world. 

    Updated note, Oct’23:
    1.5 years back, our community shared poetry in a podcast episode- Voices for Humanity, against war and against an inequitable attitude to war.
    Sadly, this is again relevant in a different context & we have re-published this episode.
    We stand for everyone’s right to peace.

    Poems and recitations by:
    Rafey Zuberi: “War Flows Out From the Eyes” 
    Abid Siddiqi: “Afghani Kid to his Ukrainian Friend” 
    Shaheryar Ali Mirza: “Blue eyes, blonde hair”
    Nadir Feroz Khan: “Do I?”
    Muniba Mahmud: “Of war”, “We heard you say all lives matter”, “All of Humanity” 

    RawPods are conversations that celebrate creative ideas and expression, and are hosted by Rawanee. For the full text of these poems, please refer to our social media channels:
