This is episode 1 of program Taleem e Balighan. Taaleem e balighan means education for adults. This program is aimed at highlighting an alternate view about Pakistan. We view Pakistan and its issues, not from an establishmentarian point of view but from an independent one. We believe that our current generation has been fed with blatant lies about our history. We have listed some important incidents in the history of Pakistan and provided a balanced view on them.
The first episode focusess on Lies in history of Pakistan. In the first video, we discussed how Mr. Jinnah’s speech was tried to be censored, how many times did Mr. Jinnah visit Kashmir between 1940-47, the only speech by Mr. Jinnah in which he had to face hooting, Was Allama Iqbal actually the first person to propose the idea of Pakistan and the opposition faced by Objectives Resolution.
In the second video, we discuss the legendary Munir Report of 1953, Role of Army in politics and otherwise throughout our history, mistakes made by Mr. Zulfiqar Ali bhutto, the Zia period, the musical chairs of 90s and Hamsafar.
In the final video, we interviewed a professor of history from Punjab University and he admitted that Pakistan is not an ideological state, rather it is now a nation state and that the curriculum changes done by Zia needs to be reversed.
