In Search Of Quaid’s Pakistan

By Haseeb Ahmad

….You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other places of worship in the State of Pakistan.
Muhammad Ali Jinnah 11 August 1947

Jinnah18

In the heart of every minority residing in Pakistan lives the tightly coiled nightmare of persecution. Every time a minority is attacked or their rights abused, the above often quoted and considered Charter of Pakistan stands mocking in the faces of the persecuted. The continued one sided response of the Government has focused a serious concern on the predicament of minorities in a country that is generally considered a homogeneous Muslim nation.
The recent arson on the chipboard factory at Jehlum owned by an Ahmadi followed by the torching of Ahmadi place of worship, has once again proven the claims of the Government merely to be biased. One is completely taken to awe by the justice authorities provided in compensation to the loss of the owners of the factory and the members of Ahmadi Community…three of its members arrested instantly… Great job done!
Make no mistake; the government has only exercised a complete implementation of the recently Established National Action Plan which clearly declares that the ‘‘elements spreading sectarian violence will be prosecuted.’’
The continued persecution without prosecution for decades has fueled the violation of the rights of minorities particularly Ahmadis in Pakistan. The hate speech can often be observed in the form of pamphlets and wall chalking in several cities. Posters declaring the members of the community ‘’heretics’’ can be seen on the mirrored walls of the shops. From target killings to mass violence and pogroms this community holds a long history of suffering.
Ahmadis were constitutionally declared non-Muslims in 1974. Since then they have been deprived even the right to live. They are not allowed to call themselves Muslims.
While they have to declare their beliefs as incorrect to obtain citizenship the others have to sign on the passport form to certify that Ahmadis are non-Muslims and their founder as an impostor. Anyone can file a blasphemy case against Ahmadis claiming that their religious feelings are injured for any reason. They are not allowed to carry out their religious practices nor to preach their faith to anyone.
The verdicts of killing Ahmadis, looting and plundering their properties to attain entry into paradise are openly circulated by the Mullahs who blindfold the public with their luscious speeches exploiting religion as their tool.
One can imagine the response of the Muslims today, if they were deprived from worshiping and following their beliefs in the west as a reaction to the recent Paris attacks. But one is amazed at the peaceful reaction of Ahmadi Community, who at each and every barbaric and inhuman act committed to them, responded peacefully.
“We only pray to Allah to guide these people and that He may protect us from their brutal activities” said, Ahmad, one of the members of the community, whose family was displaced along with six others after an infuriated mob set ablaze to their houses in Arafat colony Gujranwala.
Five-year-old Hira Tabassum, eight months old Kainat Tabassum and their grandmother Bushra Begum were burnt alive in the incident. Before this Ahmadi ‘worship places’ were attacked in Lahore, Punjab during Friday prayers leaving 94 killed and more than 120 injured.
The community is so much hated that even their dead have not been spared. Over hundred Ahmadi graves were desecrated in Lahore in 2012. Series of such horrific and tragic events continue to take lives and plunder the properties of Ahmadis residing in Pakistan. One can speculate the current Pakistan to be completely against the ideology of its Founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah who declared:
‘‘Ahmadis are Muslims. If they say they are Muslims then, no one, not even the Sovereign Legislature, has the right to say otherwise’’
(Muhammad Ali Jinnah 5 May 1944)

    “Quaid’s” Pakistan resided in his ego and dimwittedness, after flaming hatreds based on TNT, the ignoramus tells everyone they are free? Not so you moron, they are bound by the identity that formed Pakistan and so history has unfolded, not only in Pakistan but in India as well, the “Quaid” was the Quaid of Modi’s india that has reached full maturity today, intercepted in events that led to the partition.

    “Happy Thanksgiving” for mass theft and butchery

    posting on behalf of masadi sahib,


    An excerpt from the recent book by Michael Parenti, Profit Pathology and Other Indecencies for your Thanksgiving consideration:

    The lives of indigenous peoples in North America (“Indians”)—from quality of diet and medicine to individual freedom—were superior to the pinched, unwashed, dour lives transported from Christianized England. The Europeans were far more practiced than the “Indians” in dealing with syphilis, gonorrhea, small pox, typhoid, and bubonic plague, not to mention hangings, slavery, prostitution, religious wars, witch hunts, and inquisitions. European superiority registered in a few devilishly crucial areas, specifically the technologies of firearms, armor, and oceanic transport. The Native Americans had no desire to embrace the religiously oppressive, mean-spirited, acquisitive life of the colonizers. They lived comfortably free from any ruinous impulse for massive wealth accumulation. Labeled as “savage beasts” by the invaders, they actually behaved in courteous and kindly ways—that is, until they realized what they were up against.
    The indigenous peoples were subjected to heartless butcheries, beginning with the slaughter of the Arawak (a.k.a.Tainos) of Hispaniola in the 1490s. By the 1630s “our Puritan fathers” were launching attacks against the Pequot tribe, massacring hundreds of men, women and children. The meager number of survivors were sold into slavery in the West Indies. In the 1680s, in the Chesapeake tidelands, there came another wave of mass killings. This was followed by two long centuries of merciless wars across the entire continent, ending with the treacherous slaughter of Lakota men, women and children at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, in 1890.
    Estimates of the native population of America prior to the European conquest vary from twelve million to eighteen million, composing more than six hundred distinct tribal societies, speaking over five hundred languages. But after four centuries of warfare, massacre, disease, and dispossession, the original population was reduced by over 90 percent, a holocaust whose magnitude remains largely unmatched and unrecognized today. Whole tribes were completely exterminated or whittled down to scattered numbers. In this way the “Wild West” was “tamed” and “settled.”
    Today the Native American population has grown back to about 2.9 million, including Native Alaskan and Hawaiian peoples, and additional hundreds of thousands of “mixed race,” out of a total U.S. population of some 310 million. Native Americans are also referred to as “Amerindians”, “American Indians”, or simply “Indians” in the United States. They are officially designated as “Native Americans” by the U.S. Census Bureau.
    Indigenous peoples of Alaska were popularly known as “Eskimos,” a term that is still in use. They are more properly referred to collectively as “Alaskan Natives.” (For some strange reason, many progressives in the United States refer to all Alaskan Natives as “Inuits,” even though the Inuit are only one of the Native Alaskan peoples, along with the Aleut, Alutiiq, Athabascan, Iñupiat, Cup’ik, Haida, Tlingit, and Yup’ik. Calling all of these Native Alaskans “Inuits” would be like referring to all Native American Indians as Cherokee.)
    Along with the destruction of Native Americans came the expropriation of native lands. “Speaking with forked tongue, the U.S. government broke all of its 600-plus treaties and agreements with various indigenous nations,” Brian Willson reminds us. The native peoples were slaughtered with merciless deliberation and forethought so that their lands might be taken. The lands were not stolen as an afterthought. From the very beginning, the primary goal was not extermination but expropriation, not killing the natives per se, but grabbing the land and the fortune that comes with it: great and glorious expanses of farming lands and plains, mighty forests, green pastures and meadows with wild fruits, powerful rivers, wild herds and plentiful game, pristine waters, bays, lakes, fisheries, and inlets, beautiful hills and majestic mountains, deep ravines and vast deposits of rich minerals—all in unmatched abundance.
    In quick order, the hostility felt toward the Native Americans took on a fury of its own. They were seen as “red devils,” “wild dogs,” “blood thirsty savages,” and “heathens with souls consigned to hell.” As the saying went: “The only good injun is a dead injun.” So with most imperialist invasions, the victimized are depicted as victimizers. The heartless destruction of the native population is justified as an act of rectitude and self-defense against subhuman moral inferiors. Racism swiftly becomes the handmaiden of economic exploitation and imperialism.

    @hell: ” living the life in this great land. wish the same to those who work to acheive greater heights!”

    Get heights of idiocy I bet. The “life” in the usurped land involves millions feeling so miserable that they contemplate ending their lives, thousands do, via suicide, and a third of the population suffering from some form of mental illness or another, millions including kids hooked on psychotropic drugs, and homicide and prison rates that put to shame dozens of countries combined, great life in a great land indeed. God save us all from that crap.

    Muhammad Ali Jinnah 11 August 1947

    There is a misprint in the statement, which was formulated by the crown and for all the people of India and was never meant for the muslim league which under Jinnah leadership insisted on partition. Todays Pakistan practices inquisition which the catholic church exercised in the past to confront monarchy.

    @ Tajendar: paisa bolta hey. Three hundred people and they set up a symbol, the biggest in Japan to FAKE Islam to the unsuspecting masses and push the imperialist agenda. A damn shame. Japan needs to uncertify them as Muslims…the imperialists are amazing in setting up fake Islams, they set up Mirzaiat in India, and ISIS in Iraq, in Afghanistan they set up the Taliban, and they feel that they can control the world of Islam through such fakery. They fail because they don’t understand the soul of Islam, it cannot be tainted with KKKapitalist crap inventions.

    If the “Quaid” in the title “Quaid’s Pakistan” refers to the so-called Quaid-e-Azam – the same guy who was named Kafir-e-Azam by Ulama of Majlis-e-Ahrar now called Majlis Tahaffuz Khatme Nubuwwat, then we all need to revise a bit of forgotten History. We need to keep ourselves reminded of the following fatwas that were issued by Ulama at the time Pakistan was born:
    .
    1. FATWA of Majlis Ahrar (now Majlis Tahaffuz Khatme Nubuwwat) :
    (a) Pakistan is Paleedistan
    (b) Quaid-e-Azam is Kafir-e-Azam
    .
    2. FATWA of Jamaat-i-Islami by Maulana Maudoodi :
    (a) Pakistan is Napak-istan
    .
    Lo and behold. The Fatwas of most learned and infallible Ulama are irrevocable and irreversible. The judgement is final. This is the Judgement of our Ulama, and “whenever” our Ulama pass a judgement, that day is the Day of Judgement.
    .
    Rex Minor : Trust me – there is no misprint in Jinnah’s speech of 11th August 1947. What else would you expect from a Kafir? Sorry – “Kafir-e-Azam” – “Kafir-e-Azam the founder of Paleedistan”. Just read thatvspeech. It’s sheer blasphemy. There is no mention of the supremacy of the Ulama, no mention of Madrassahs, no mention of special funds for the Ulama, no mention of the shuttlecock burqa, no mention of minimum lengths of beards, no mention of painchas-above-ankles, no mention of forcible circumcision services, etc etc etc. No wonder Ulama called Jinnah “Kafir-e-Azam”.

    Forget about what a handpicked two or three “ulema” said about a political issue, let us talk about what your “prophet” the fake, Mirza said about those who don’t believe in him, he called them sons of whores and pigs, he gloated over the butchery of Muslims by the British saying his father lent them horses so they could do the act, he called those who didn’t beleive in his prophethood suuar key bachay. The Quaid was an opportunistic pig, a Kaffir for sure but one well versed in the art of deception and the use of Islam for his own purpose, he acted as the ulema on several occassions himself, wonder why you find that discomforting?

    Rex are u so out of the intellect loop that u do not understand that pcm is a Mirza busy with what mirzais are commonly busy with poking fun at Muslims to push their religious agendas,that is what he is doing with his tongue in cheek posts in the ulena and playing the role of a CIA trained mullah.

    P.s the above post was not by masadi sahib but by me Nobody sahib, in the passion of the discussion, I typed masadi while answering hellturd. Masadi no longer posts here.
