The broken Pakistan…

Pakistan resolution Day : 23rd March 1940 – 23rd March 2013

 

Minar-e-Pakistan

Minar-e-Pakistan (Pakistan Day Memorial) is a minar which was built to commemorate the day when the Pakistan resolution was passed on March 23, 1940. The main tower of this memorial was completed on March 22, 1968. The location was originally known as Minto Park. It was here that the historic session of the All-India Muslim League was held on March 23, 1940.

This resolution called for the creation of an independent state for Muslims in British-India. As Wikipedia says;

Although the name “Pakistan” had been proposed by Choudhary Rahmat Ali in his Pakistan Declaration[3] in 1933, Muhammad Ali Jinnah and other leaders had kept firm their belief in Hindu-Muslim unity.[4] However, the volatile political climate and sidelining of Muslims by Indian National Congress showed the future of the Muslims in the subcontinent not so bright[5][6] and gave the idea stronger backing.[7]

The resolution stated that,

No constitutional plan would be workable or acceptable to the Muslims unless geographical contiguous units are demarcated into regions which should be so constituted with such territorial readjustments as may be necessary.[14]

Additionally, it stated:

That adequate, effective and mandatory safeguards shall be specifically provided in the constitution for minorities in the units and in the regions for the protection of their religious, cultural, economic, political, administrative and other rights of the minorities,

Seven years after the strong struggle of leaders was the independence act signed and the Islamic republic of Pakistan appeared on the world map. Not to forget the massacres and bloodshed which resulted as a reaction from those who disliked the idea and STRONGLY OPPOSED it.

.

65 years have passed to the creation of Pakistan.

Pakistan is still not an independent country. The world calls it a terrorist state. The world judges the 16 crore plus people by the 16 thousand or so enemies of the state. The world sees that Pakistan has failed. That it has collapsed!! (and not that it is striving to stand up again!)

The world can NOT see the beauty, the originality, and the hearts of Pakistanis because that is not SHOWN to them!!! What the media shows is the bombards, the helter-skelter, the terrorism. And its true. It’s actually true  that Pakistan is going through the worst possible condition. Nobody feels safe. Life isn’t safe. People are dying, starving, and afraid.

BUT the Pakistanis, the rest of the 16 crore people, the sad and happy people, the safe and unsafe people, WANT A CHANGE! They want the world to see their positivity, they want them to see what Pakistan really is. They want better governments, they are all striving to help others. They appreciate a good change and they wish and hope to get good leaders like the leaders in their past!

They have all the potential and the greatest potential they have is hope!

These are the things they want you to admire:

A country is easy to get and not easy to control. Whatever situation Pakistan goes through, patriotism is never going to die. The people are always going to strive for good and that is the best positivity you will find about this country!

  1. Well-written! Although… About the slide show; Do you really think that is what we want everyone to see? Are those the main things out of the many we want the world to notice?

    • Thankyou for your comment!
      This post might lack many qualities, I would be really glad if you highlight the other things I might put into here. I had put the beautiful places, the social saviours, and the culture(sports and music). I will add more if you help!🙂
      Thanks.

      • Maybe you should highlight more of the reasns of the creation of Pakistan. Those reasons still remain. They are still why we want Pakistan, and that is what we want others to see it as too. But of course, you can’t show all that in a slideshow…

        • True point, I think the best, exemplary speech is that of Liaquat Ali Khan in 1950 in Kansas Uni, USA. Its so beautifully and clearly explains everything from start to sratch!

  2. Very true. On the media what we hear is about Pakistan bombings, terrorist attacks, thalibas, oppression, poverty, discrimination against women etc etc.
    But I have had the good fortune of meeting a jovial & educated Pakistani at a regional meeting and I consequently have learned a lot more about Pakistan. It’s a beautiful country, and is quite developed. It’s just that the media gets holds of the wrong end of the stick. Or maybe Pakistan just needs to work on addressing those issues..
    All the best to Pakistan.

    • Thankyou very much amira for your kind comment! Its true that the media gets hold of the darker side first, and maybe forever. However, the truth inside something is not better known unless you see the second side, like you did, and I am glad you did!🙂
      It is also true that, Pakistan needs to work hard on addressing all these issues by proper strategy and with the role of each individual, along with the Government.
      I pray that Pakistan gets on the road to success soon, and the world revises its views about this land and its people.
      Once again thanks for all your sincere wishes! Keep visiting.🙂

    • My pleasure! I too hope people can see the brigther face of this land, and I really pray that Pakistan gets over these hardships soon..
      And as for the contribution offer, I would love to do this. But it will be very difficult to write on a daily basis. Could you give me your email address or send me an email so that I can understand more of the topic types?

    “I believe in erasing hatred from the roots of it. I strongly believe in the idea of ‘being human‘ that is, we are all humans before we belong to any other group or caste!”
    this is a beautiful statement and reflects the heart of what i believe and (try) to live. this is a very interesting post, and it makes me want to learn more…

    • ..thank you.
      The post lacks a whole lot of things, it is incomplete too. Dates back to 25th March 2013, and was written for 23rd i.e. Pak resolution day.
      I do believe firmly in ‘being human’ before being anybody else, and I think it matters.

    ok, i was wondering what the meaning of 16 core people is? also, i note that you reference a speech by one of the founders given at Kansas U – it is just a few miles from where i grew up. my older brother graduated from that university, though i doubt he remembers since he had such a good time.

    October 26, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    • The post lacks a whole lot, I’ll say again.

      The world judges the 16 crore plus people by the 16 thousand or so and so enemies of the state.

      16 crore was the population, which by now is over 19 crore. (of which too, I am not perfectly sure.)
      A crore is a unit in the South Asian numbering system equal to ten million (10,000,000), which is written as 1,00,00,000, equal to a hundred lakhs.

      October 26, 2013 at 7:30 pm

      • rjl2727

        oh, so 16 or 19 X 10 million? that clarifies for me.
        i also notice one of your friends seems to be hyper-critcal of some of your posts, but you seem to handle it with extraordinary grace.

        incidentally, the dog made a delicious supper las night.😉

        October 26, 2013 at 7:35 pm

        • Yes, to ten million.
          YOU KILLED THE DOG?

          October 26, 2013 at 7:39 pm

          • rjl2727

            of course not! i just had to give you a jab. besides, when i do get around to it, i will suely invite you to dine with me!!!

            October 26, 2013 at 7:52 pm

          • Uh great!

            October 26, 2013 at 7:59 pm

          • rjl2727

            joking of course. eating dog is generally frowned upon here. and i would certainly provide you with a much better meal!!

            October 26, 2013 at 8:11 pm

          • I’ll be looking forward to that day.🙂

            October 26, 2013 at 8:17 pm

          • rjl2727

            same, same!!

            October 26, 2013 at 8:19 pm

          • We won’t have any meat you know. Meat involves ‘merciless slaughter’.

            October 26, 2013 at 8:30 pm

          • rjl2727

            not a problem. i don’t really like meat that much. i could be a vegetarian, but i love fish.

            October 26, 2013 at 8:38 pm

          • Great.

            October 26, 2013 at 8:41 pm

          • rjl2727

            well, i’m off to work for a few hours – with one of my autistic students. he is taller than me and outweighs me by 20 pounds. he can be a teddy-bear one minute, and want to knock the hell of you the next, so pray for my safety. in the meantime, i’ll just converse with you in my mind (until he hits me in the jaw). and you should be busy composing your next beautiful poem. smile and peace…

            October 26, 2013 at 8:46 pm

          • I wish you a safe journey with him.🙂

            I won’t be composing anything ‘beautiful’ at the moment, but I’ll be re-reading your article about the hunting season for sure. Peace. (=

            October 26, 2013 at 8:53 pm

          • rjl2727

            well, safe for the moment, thanks to your prayers.

            you really should be writing, and not depriving your followers of what you feel and say. trust me, it would be more profitable for you than reading my article on hunting.

            October 26, 2013 at 11:19 pm

          • I can not write. But I soon will. Thank you.

            October 26, 2013 at 11:25 pm

          • rjl2727

            ok. peace and dreams…

            October 26, 2013 at 11:27 pm

        • I mean no, okay, perfect. I wasn’t really shouting.

          October 26, 2013 at 7:45 pm

          • rjl2727

            ??? did i think you were shouting?

            October 26, 2013 at 7:53 pm

          • No, but I was. Until I realized I should rather be thankful you didn’t do anything else from your list of ‘infinite plans’.

            October 26, 2013 at 8:03 pm

          • rjl2727

            no, i’m not intentionally self-destructive. i think i wrote that earlier in the year in order to drive a final nail in that particular coffin.

            October 26, 2013 at 8:10 pm

          • Ahan! I hope the ‘final nail’ is still in place.

            October 26, 2013 at 8:22 pm

          • rjl2727

            yes!! most definitely done and past. i don’t even see it in my rearview mirror.
