Good Luck Pakistan

I wish you good luck Pakistan. I know you was taken on the name of Islam once, I was not born at that time, but still when I gaze at stars, they give me a reflection back of the time when the streets of Lahore were glorified by the slogan of La Ilaha Ill Allah.

 

My dear Country, I feel sad to tell you that your inhabitants are still in a fight if this country had to be Islamic or secular, I wish I could tell them how it feels when a racist hurt your dignity on the name of religion, how it feels when someone doesn’t eat with you for the reason of religion, how it feels when you cannot breath freely, how it feels when your self respect is deteriorated in the name of religion. It certainly feels bad, it certainly feels worse. Instead of thanking God for His bounty, your inhabitants still urge to raise the secularist flag.

 

I wish you good luck Pakistan, I know you had seen many disastrous times, I know you was always suppressed by your inhabitants, I know it hurts you when a milkman dilutes milk by water, when a decent man bribes a policeman, when a doctor becomes a dacoit, when education is sold, when politicians gamble for seats, when everything is assured to make life miserable.

 

As I look behind the years passed, I feel how hard it would have been for you to survive. When the Khilafat shuddered in 1924, every country raised slogan of nationalism, some claimed to be Turks, some raised slogan of being Egyptians, and many others called themselves Arabs. All these newly formed countries were unaware of the fact that in next 23 years, the state will rise, the state that will be called the state of Allah, where the nationalism would have no meaning, where people wouldn’t call themselves Punjabi, Balochi, Sindhi or Pathan, where there would be no significance of Deobands, Brailvis, Ahl e Hadith, or Ahl e Tashi, the land that will be taken for recite of ‘La Ilaha Ill Allah’, the land where the minorities will enjoy the same social, economical rights as enjoyed by Muslims, the land that will be taken on the name of Allah.

 

But as I gaze at the people around, I am sorry Pakistan, the situation is way too different here, your inhabitants are not worried about you, they are divided in the cloaks of racism, they are segregated in different religious sects. I am shivered to tell you, often the air of Pure Land has stench of fresh blood, and often the blood is seen at the roadside, your inhabitants are not doing justice to you.

 

I know the hard times are coming ahead, sometimes you are poked by foreigners, sometimes your heart is targeted by insiders, but don’t worry, I assure you, good times are ahead. The people, who can see behind the veils, are giving signs that best of best times are coming ahead. I still feel the rays of love emitting from the heart of that honest clerk who still hates bribery. I still see the prominent gleam of joy in the eyes of that traffic warden, who calmly controls the traffic. I still feel the waves of tranquility from that school teacher who actually comes in school to dignify the future of his student. I still feel radiance of love from a rescuer who would jump in deep waters to save a drowning person. Don’t worry, good times are ahead, all that I can do for you is pray, good luck Pakistan.

  1. Explain this:
    1.Jinnah’s 11 August speech where he said that religion has nothing to do with the business of the state.
    2.La ilaha…. Was not the official slogan of Muslim league.
    3.Why mullahs opposed Pakistan.
    4.Jinnah was Shia; did he want to impose Sunni sharia on his fellow Shias? Sunnis who call Shia heretics?
    5.Jinnah used to drink wine and eat pork.
    6.He didn’t say a word from Quran or Hadees. Never prayed namaz, or observe roza, or offer Haj.
    7.He acceped Cabinet Mission Plan of 1946 which called for autonomy inside India.
    8.Pakistan was formed when Congress rejected the Cabinet Mission Plan.
    9.Why Jinnah opposed partition of Punjab on religious basis.
    10.Why he accepted undivided independent Bengal.

  2. @Mr. Ali
    No power can hold another nation, and specially a nation of 400 million souls in subjection; nobody could have conquered you, and even if it had happened, nobody could have continued its hold on you for any length of time, but for this. Therefore, we must learn a lesson from this. You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship in this State of Pakistan. “You may belong to any religion or caste or creed that has nothing to do with the business of the State”. As you know, history shows that in England, conditions, some time ago, were much worse than those prevailing in India today. The Roman Catholics and the Protestants persecuted each other. Even now there are some States in existence where there are discriminations made and bars imposed against a particular class

    1. Read this part of speech.
    2. La ilaha is not the slogan of Muslim League but the slogan of Pakistan. La ilaha is the only reason.
    3. Mullahs were not against Pakistan but the leader Jinnah. Because he got education from British.
    4. your ans is in that part of speech and There is no concept of Sects in Islam .. If someone believes in Allah and Nabi S.A.W then they are muslims.. His target was freedom of muslim ummah.. not favored Sunni or Shia. He supported Islamic universalism.
    5. I drinker can never be a strong person, in case of Muslims.
    6. Media didn’t highlights his time-to-time activies.. just portryated those factors from which Pakistan came to being in.

  3. Your thoughts are noble, but the religious elite doesnt see things like that. The history of sectarian voilence is as hold as Islam. In case of Pakistan, the sectarian voilence started over Zakat issue; Shias protested against the state’s authority over Zakat, and the Zia unleashed Deobandi militants on him. Wasnt it better if Zia hadnt touched an issue that was bound to spark sectarian conflict. Read the fatwas on websites of different madrassas; you will be shocked at the hatred sects have for each other.

  4. yeah i know.. That’s why Allah says in Quran: “And hold firmly to the rope of Allah, and be not divided” (A’le-Imran 3/103.
    Rope is Quran and teaching of our beloved Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.. if we hold to them then we are TRUE Muslims.
    that’s a flaw, we are not a Muslim even.
    Zia did very wrong. Issues get weird when we invlove military..
