Beautiful or ugly, God's creations should be loved equally
We should love all creations of God whether they are beautiful or ugly. Of course, English poet Keats has said that a thing of beauty is joy forever and indeed we do love beautiful flowers, beautiful flora and fauna, beautiful men and women.

However, we should also love all the ugly things created by God. Great men knew this thing. That is why Gandhiji and Baba Amte loved lepers because they understood that lepers are also the creations of God and both these men became world famous.  

Gandhiji further loved so called untouchables because the latter were also the creation of great God. In fact, Gandhiji went onto remove untouchability and is remembered for his service to the untouchables.   

White people hated black people but many European Christian missionaries worked among black people even at the risk of their lives and were sometimes eaten by these black people but that did not stop many more of such missionaries from coming forward and improving the condition of the black people because they knew that God loves black people also because the latter are also His creation.

Khwaja Ghulam Farid has written, "Kise Akhiya Mian Majanoo Tain Teri Laila Rang Di Kaali Ai.  Majnoo Parat Jawab Dita; Teri Akh Na Dekhan Wali Ai. Quran Sharif De Warqe Chite Te Khuda Di Siahi Kaali Ai. Ghulam Farid Jithe Dil Lagiya Othe Ki Gori Ki Kaali Ai."  (Somebody told Majnoo that his beloved Laila is of black colour. Majnoon retorted that the person telling him such a thing had no eyes to see.  While the pages of the Holy Quran are white, the ink of God on these pages is black. So, where there is love, it does not matter whether the beloved is white or black.)

I have cited all these cases to show that it is not necessary that only a thing of beauty is joy forever but even ugly things are the creation of God and hence should be loved and if possible we should serve them like Gandhiji. Lord Jesus Christ also looked after lepers and even prostitutes.
