I have read your article relating the above subject in the daily
Nawa-e-Waqt of today. I appreciate your article and wish you to
write something about education and educational institutions in
Pakistan. According to my observation and experience the educational
institutions have become a commercial industry. This industry is
seen everywhere in every street and established in residential
houses. In British days no school was recognized and registered if
its building was not shaped like English words E or H. Similarly
playgrounds and libraries were the most essential requirements of
schools. Here in Pakistan there is no uniformity in courses and fees
etc. Everybody is at liberty to charge any amount under the garb of
"English Medium". It appears that the Ministry of Educations enjoys
a sound sleep right from 1947 till date.
Thanks & Regards

I have gone through your column Bati in daily nawa e waqat. The

Respected Maidam ,
I did read ur column baiti in nawa e waqat . I do belong to the area
Mir Hazar Khan ,same of the Amna the victome. I did complete my
M.Phill and Gender Issues remained my topic of interest and also
part of my thesis. the event of Amna seems an un-intential effort to
break the social barears. I do appreciate such efforts. Although
there are some other aspects of the events which may be/ must be
kept in mind..when ever u feel the need to clear those aspacts( and
u will not) I'll appreciate ur courage..

You have done your job very well. You might be responsible to say
Azan but how many Namazi comes its not your duty. Keep enlightening
people and knocking at closed doors which are still not locked and
need push. DATA Sahib quoted "you are not responsible for Jaza &
Saza". Pl remember you are among those who are delighted to shout "zinda
bad", do nothing but look busy. When both ruling parties heads are
brothers, who can challenge them. It may be the time of dust, filth,
garbage and epidemics but surely the rain would come and wash
things. I am deeply impressed because you rasied true voice of true
and loyal Pakistanis.
Marvellour and commendable job. Thanks for inimitable work.

I use to read your columns occasionally and most of contents
inspired me, one could say that you are an experienced columnist.
The issue which provoked me to write this mail to you is your recent
interview with professor dr. Tahir ul Qadri known as mullah
container after his last year peaceful jehad in Pakistan . I don't
know under what circumstances you are compelled to interview this
person who's own personality is very questionable within his own
statements . If you believe this Maulanna is the champion of Islamic
democracy which is not more than an eyewash to me then please
disregard this mail. Why you did not ask him that gen Perwaiz
Musharaf historic decision for helping infidels against a Muslim
neighbor country stands at what level of jihad. Writing columns or
doing any activity which is seen and judged by masses and could be a
trend setter is a huge responsibility if any one propagates a hidden
agenda his or her eternal companionship will be with same group.
There are so many things controversial in my mind about Tahir Qadri
which I do not think are even appropriate to write . I am living in
Toronto for last 18 years may be if I get a chance to see you in
person could discuss with you. You are a good writer with a vivid
point of view about socioeconomic justice, my Humble request to you
is stay away from scholars who ready sold our religion. It not worth
talking them or showing there point of view on media.
Mohammad Arshad Butt
My compliments on the way you conducted the article this morning.
You have an ability to stay cool and help opposing readers reach
agreement with words to address the situation with hidden truth. It
is a pleasure to read your article. Thanks for helping us all find
the best solution.
It is not just the teaching profession but every aspect of life is
upside down and out of kilter in Pakistan. In fact it has been like
that for decades. The education system is suffering along with all
other systems in that country. The reason is simple – poor or
non-extent governance. A handful few families own the politics who
take turns in ruling the country like a game of musical chairs. They
make sure that they keep the public poor, illiterate, hand to mouth
and confused. The public is so backward and devoid of the capacity
to think for themselves and like idiots, set out to vote the same,
tried and true thugs and thieves who have been assessed and
evaluated time and again to be totally useless and selfish and yet,
the public goes out to elect them. I bet, 5 years from now the PPP
thugs will be elected and they will still be as useless as ever but
the general public will fail to learn any lesson from the history.
Since they refuse to learn a lesson from their own history, they are
condemned to relive it again and again.
What you have written on the education system and the teachers, you
could write on almost any other discipline in Pakistan – it will
apply – The whole country is being dismantled brick by brick.
The education and health system are supposed to be the
responsibility of the state, but only when the rulers have interest
and concern for nation building. The cycle of thugs and their
monopoly over the political institutions cannot break unless the
public refuses to go out and vote for parties like PML (A to Z),
PPP, MQM, ANP and various Mullah parties. People should stay home
and must boycott the elections when they see the same thugs or their
family members keep running in the elections year after year.

AOA dear Sister,
I often read your column in daily news paper nawa-i- waqt. Today I
read your writing early in the morning and decided to mail you. I
request you to continue this kind of topics which really reflect our
sick society's picture. unfortunately, the difference between rich
and poor is increasing rapidly and no one is bothering. Perhaps this
is going to be the possible biggest issue. Anyhow, I almost read all
your essays and really felt them.
Plz carry on with kind heart for poor and needy.
remember me in your Prayers.

Dear Ruby Faisal
It is a nice article over indian peoples psychology .I can give You
one example Nehru daughter Indra ghandhi she married with Muslim
Feroz khan although she converted I read in an article she Did nikah
in UK Mosque you can read over it on wikipedia. When she come back
from Europe Mahatma Ghandhi givem Proposal that he wants to give
Feroz khan Status as a son so they Change Feroz Khan to Feroz
Ghandhi and Indra took name ghandhi From Feroz ghandhi its a long
story.even she get two childrens and Why she give them hindu names
because one child was from feroz and
Other was from Mr saleem who was servant in indian foreign service.
They likes muslim as bed partner not life partners. So why rajiv and
sanjiv (sanjay) why not they could name majid or Sajid. Hope you
understand indian psychology.
Dear Madam Rubina Aapa
Thankyou for you as a host of Ehtesham Arshad Interview on the issue

Read ur article "Greeb-i-Rabza".It was very logical but controversial
at the end u absolutely turned down the system of "sadqa & zakat"
whereas it is very successfully effective in a pure Islamic social
welfare state but not in any so called Islamic state such as Pakistan
which is 70% European styled democratic & 30% Islamic. Even then I
appreciate ur writing. Thanks.

I read your column and its inside message was very dark and that was
just to disgrace religion. you type people has just started now and
we are seeing columns from them in various newspapers. blaming
religion for what other factors are doing is ridiculous. first your
slogan of human equality is false which has no base. how many type
of equality would you people create?do you make tall and short
equal, black and white equal ,ugly and beautiful equal, powerful and
weak equal ,fat and thin equal, intelligent and fool equal, sharp
and dull equal, ill and healthy equal and hardworking and lazy
equal? certainly not.do you not think that all the lesser people in
these departments has not the feeling of deprivation? religion gives
us light to what to do in all these conditions and religion also
teaches us to be kind to any type of lesser people and don't make
world your ultimate destiny and make for the hereafter(which is
certain) by doing welfare for the people. religion is all good but
the real problem is that people are not acting on religion. islam
really discourages the collection of wealth and spending in material
things but motivate them to spend on welfare of mankind.in our
country we are experiencing a so called Islamic system. yes islam
encourage charity but strongly negate the interest and corruption
which is causing problem. if you mix milk and urine in one glass ,
it will become urinate milk which no one of us want to drink.so
islam is mixing with the things which it strongly denies. on the
other hand socialism is a very unnatural system and long discussion
is required for this topic. and one more thing, yes islam supports
equality but in the field of sharia law where no one is superior(in
other words justice system).islam ojective is the welfare of mankind
and non other ,so stop blaming religion.
read you article published on the above date. Sometimes, I use to
think that maybe what I see and observe is false, since I never hear
the echos of my thought coming from another person. If you talk
about these social issues with other, people react as if this is the
norm, so no use talking. The article was very painful but like any
good piece of art, kept me involved. Ironically it feels good to
know that the harsh realities of life. Sometimes I feel that even
here in the west the information media has become so fake and
artificial that life it self seems artificial. There is no mention
of pain, misery and of inhuman conditions. Strangely, people care
about their pain but not others. I wish we could care for other`s
pain, as if we cared for our own. But I believe we will one day
reach that evolutionary stage, until then keep writing on these

Can a human raise his voice who is
earning income from a Haram source??
Now i have started to believe that
soon Pakistan will be the country of Zombies. In a true sense we are
eating the meat of our brothers and our own peoples
We are sucking the bloods of poors
and those who do not have powers to say.
A few days ago i have visited the
Garhi Shahu bridge where railways sheds had been made. A beautifull
scense with greenery everywhere , old english style buildings and
rail tracks but now this all turned into jungle where out of order
Rail Cars are getting rust and turning into scrap.
Pakistan is now Zombies country
where no one speaks truth/ no one raise voice / and no one cares

- Your column, Tufaiya, parasite, is an excellent column. The
satirical diction is wonderful. You have inflicted lethal
strikes on the evil aspects of bureaucracy. In fact it is the
first good article I have come across in Urdu press on this
subject. The woman who went back on her words and did not
participate in your program, is a typical example of " honest"
bureaucracy. .you have , very effectively, stated that right
type of bureaucracy can bring revolution in the country.
Muhammad Izhar ul Haq
It is true, the bureaucrats make the back bone of the government in
any country, not only in Pakistan. But the problem with Pakistan’s
bureaucrats and the politicians is that they could not get
themselves out of the colonial mentality and the related attitudes.
The colonial values and methodologies had been ingrained on their
psyche at the time when the British colonists left the country.
Pakistan started its political life with individuals at the helm who
had received the windfall as the British colonists left and the
senior bureaucrats all of a sudden found themselves sitting in the
highest offices. From 1947 to 1958 they were busy in establishing
themselves in the new found freedom of ruling the poor, destitute
and mostly illiterate public that was set in the slavery and had no
idea about democracy as the land had not experienced any in the
known history of that land. Had Mr. Jinnah been around for a few
more years, he could have shown others the ropes of statehood and
the requirements for nation building. The messy political and
administrative situation that had been created by the inept
bureaucrats and politicians was an open invitation for a military
coup. The first military coup took place in October 1958 which
introduced another undesirable tradition on top of all the other
socio-political problems that existed. Today, the country is far
from meeting the minimum requirement of having an adequate political
culture necessary to manage the exploding population, the rampant
poverty and illiteracy with political pressures of foreign
imperialism. It took England about 5 centuries to establish its
democratic norms that we see implemented today. During those
centuries for political struggle, they did not have a threat from
others in Europe, as the other European states of the period were
not directly involved in the internal life of any country. In
today’s Pakistan, the external powers have more say in its inner
workings than its own voters out of its 180 million population. The
method of selection and training of the bureaucrats used in Pakistan
is the same as used by the British Raj – but they served England
while today’s bureaucrats and the politicians serve themselves and
their families. The notion of serving the public and building nation
was not a mandate for the British Raj bureaucrats. Sadly, it is not
a mandate for today’s Pakistani bureaucrats either. A complete
change of system and an out of the box thinking is required that
does not exist today.

It has been a long while that I wrote any comments about your
columns. I do read them religiously and enjoy the contents with
fantastic arguments. Ehtisan and Intikhab is a wonderful column and
needs to be widely circulated. "Shaed k utra jaey kisi dil maen teri
baat" with apology from Ghalib...
When would the political leaders budge? Hope we get one Mahaterr or
Kamal Ata-Turk to change the destiny of Watan-e-Aziz....

I have read your various Articles In Nawa e Waqt & this JASSI is a
marvelous HADD BETI.
Sikhs are really Sikhs & they created havoc during partition. About
100.000 Muslim ladies of East Punjab were rapes & 50,000 were
forcibly detained in east Punjab by Sikhs.
I was along with my other 7 friends were at Wahga to provide First
aid, food etc to these refugees. We 8 friends were there for more
than 3/4 months. Six workers of 1947 have
gone back. One Mian Iftikhar ud din ( who was related to me) is in
Missuaga with both kidneys failed. I had my Bi-Pass In Detroit in
1997 being American National..
We, the group worked hard to provide relief to incoming refugees in
VERY BAD POSITION.
So this poor (lovely) Jassi suffered at the hands of sikhs & not
only her parents.
We also worked as movement workers in 1946 at Lahore. My parents (
both from father's side & mother's side were staunch Muslim
Leaguers. But today's Pakistan is far away from our ideals. We can
pray for this poor country. We tghe remaing two are on our way back
as our health is very poor. I do not write Articles but I have very
good relation with Overseas Pakistani article writers. May allah
blesses you with HIS REHMAT. Dua Abdul Waheed Rathore Lahore
Good Morning Ruby,
what an eye catching subject Ruby,
It was so sad, so romantic, so thoughtful and so heart touching;
being a Punjabi, bearing father of a daughter and
coupled with the future social norms it is a lesson for the parents
I would like to know how did you get the story, i mean the
background if you could share and another thing;
Best of Luck

I hope you are absolutely fine.
The day before yesterday, I read your column with title of " Teen
Din Beenai k", it was superb and very inspirational effort done by
you, that changed my thoughts about my stack holders, my official
commitment, my study etc. I hope and wish that many of others must
read that one and think about it.
The main purpose of this mail is say to thanks from core of my heart
for changing my thoughts.
Allah ap ko humesha khush rakhay our isi tara ap ko ap k qalam ki
madad se hmari rahnumai ki toufeeq atta frmaiy. (Ameen)
Your article in today Nawa-i-Waqt is also impressive
in which you have beautifully presented the example of Halen keller.
You are right , we do not care of what we have.
“ I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief
duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble”
Qazi Israr Ahmed.
I have been reading your articles in Nawa-Waqt with
keen interest but today's article is really thought provoking and
shows your deep knowledge. It appears you are really a good scholar
and a good researcher on various topics. Your article has left me
saddened all the day and has forced me to look around me with a
broadened view and perceptive. May God help you in influencing the
lives of the people of Pakistan with your enlightened articles.
Without changing our inner we can’t able to claim any kind of change
anywhere. Being a nation we are entirely careless that what other
think ,what is their needs etc. Your son rightly said where are the
other people who fell with Mr. Imran ?
There is a lot of difference between unpar or jahil.
Qazi Israr Ahmed.
You have very rightly drawn disctinction between the culturableness
of the literates and illetrates. I have personally seen my self this
distinction in many cases. So your contribution is very valid and
useful - at least I found it interesting. Keep it up.
With my kind regards,

Subject: Feedback on article "Imran Khan. .kaya chahta hay"
Going through your article "Imran Khan. .kaya chahta hay" which is
published in Nawa-e-waqt,i decided to write an email to appreciate
you on presenting a unique analysis of situation which nobody is
considering important. I am a daily reader of Nawa-e-waqt and
occasionally read articles.Whenever any incident happens,all writers
are writing ALMOST the same thing which is quite boring and
unfortunately disappointing as well!
After the PTI's jalsa on 23rd march,some writers were against and
some were in favor of Imran Khan but you have chosen a completely
different perspective.I am an educated PTI supporter and will cast
vote first time to any party.Your analysis has a depth and vision is
beyond the apparent situation ,focusing on the result of the CHANGE
which is unfortuantely not being fruitful in the past.
Being a Pakistani,these questions are in my mind too! What is real
change?Can anyone define it for us?
I am very hopeful for the future of PTI and Pakistan,but i know this
is not an easy task.It can take years to clean the garbage but
alteast i will tell my children that i have chosen right people for
our country and will not give the lame excuses as our parents have
been giving us for years.
Rubina! your point is right. We are living in a society where
Politics is in family system and Families are in Political system
and hence both are destructing each other. Those who had sacrificed
for the country are actually in the same financial condition or even
down.My grandparents have also migrated from Amritsar(India) to
lahore and they tell us how they had left everything for this
LAND.The ones who were landlords at that time are still the
landlords.They have strong presence in the assemblies.Do they have a
birth right of ruling?Why always these
paracha's,khar's,leghari's,bugti,makhdoom's and our super heroes
(Army generals) have a right to govern the country?. . or Have we
given them right to rule? or we consider ourself so incompetent no
to argue? or we are so senseless and self centered that we dont
care? . .We are treated like animals and still we are quite!
If this is not the limit then what should be the limit of cruelty?
If CHANGE is that the same mentality prevails then it will be of no
use.Dont change faces,change the mentality.I wish that i have this
attitude one day " i have given you vote,so what have you done so
far? and before starting any campaign,politicians must present their
policies and tell us what they have done while in a government like
in other countries. I hope that this culture will prevail in our

Dear Madam, AOA. It was a shear chance that I
happened to read you column ,' Har Dagh hai is dil main bejuz dagh-i-
Nidamet' describing your reaction on messages of Valentine day. I
also then read your Khawatine day column. It was quite painful to
learn about your perception of Muslims and Isalm.In the first place
let me make some clarifications.
1-An Islamic Society ( a model ) does not exist anywhere in the
World. The various Muslim groups that you may see or meet are a
mixture of different creeds, cultures and civilizations to which
they originally belonged.
2- Pakistan declares itself as an Islamic Country by name but its
people do not represent Islam as revealed in the Quran and Hadith(
Sunnah--Sayings of the Prophet pbuh)
What I have gathered from your two above mentioned columns is that
you are quite a learned lady knowing a lot about Western, Hindue and
other cultures from your terms of Mohabbat Ka Din, Seeta, Ramaiyna
etc. I feel you have not read about Islam, Quran and Hadith( Record
of Prophet'spbuh sayings). Must have been born into a Muslim parent
family---inheritd Muslim). Use of the pharase Chooma Chati (kissing)
in public by a lover is a western Value. This is not appreciated
even in Hindue culture.
I donot want to debate or condemn what your views are about Mulims
or Pakistan's prevlent culture here. I would request you to spare
some time to studying Islam, Quran and Sunnah and some Muslims who
have embraced Islam by choice. Thank you. Muhammad Azeem
As usual written with a heart. And very true. In life I have been
surprised at eminent women having low self esteem. Women will have
to have poise and confidence in themselves for others to recognize
them. I would slightly disagree with the stark difference presented
between Pakistani and Canadian societies. The problems here might be
different but low self esteem is of the same quantum and sometimes
the dissonance between family structures inside the house and
society is so much that it leads to contradictions of a different

Madam, I read your column in Nawa-i-waqt of 21st February,
2012. I want to raise objection against two things in your
column. First thing is a sentence about Pakistan: "جہاں مذہب
اور ثقافت کا نام لے لے کر عام کشش کی چیزوں کو بھی ایک کشمکش
کی صورت دے دی گئی ہے". Here, i will not talk about "Saqafat"
(culture) because it changes with the passage of time and
differ in different areas of the world. But, our religion
"Islam" should must be our first and foremost
priority in all the matters of our lives. As Muslims, we
strictly believe that Islam is right everywhere, and if
Islam is stopping us from vulgarity, then it is obviously
bad. And if you find it right (probably western society
has made you find it right) and find it just "عام کشش کی چیز",
then you do not have the right to raise your finger
on the people, who are putting Islam first in their lives
and raising their voices against vulgarity (actually who are
Second thing is that, You mentioned an incident, you saw in
Lahore and afterwards tried to prove that the things like
"Valentines day" are far better than such things already
happening in Pakistan. Madam, i agree that incident was
strongly condemnable and a matter of shame for our
society, but do you think, one bad thing can be a
justification of another bad thing? Like if you are doing
one wrong thing, so you should do second wrong thing too. I
hope, you will also find it illogical.
I totally agree with your statement " معاشرے کو اس قدر ہیجان
میں مبتلا کر دیا گیا ہے کہ وہ موقع ملنے پرا قدر کی بے قدری
کر دیتے ہیں اورپھر اس پر چُپ کی چادر ڈال دیتے ہیں". But the
reason behind this is also that we are making distances
longer between us and Islam i.e late marriages, vulgarity in
media etc. And solution is not celebrating "Valentines day".
I don't know, will you read it or not & if you read then
what response you will give. The main reason, why i am
writing this to you is that, I read a Hadees several times,
which means (in short) that we should try our best to stop
wrong things, we see and if we can not stop then at least
think that things bad. I hope, you will take this message in
a positive way.

This piece (mazdoor
aur aag ka nizam) makes you cry. One Og the few columnists
who has raised the issue purely for the sake of the humans who lost
their lives. Had there been a religious angle, a state angle, a
firqa angle, the paid trumpeters would have done exclusive programs.
But alas they were only humans of myriad religions and castes.
Written in the correct emotional mode, I am very impressed. No
agendas, no line, pure humanity.
I would recommend the civil society and Rabina to agitate that one
job is given to each family's descendants.
Atleast there was one voice that was raised for these non
influential victims. They would salute you from the skies. I do from

In this column, you have quite correctly

While all this is going on, the new

the water as if it was not muddy enough
already. According to a Dawn, on-line,
Public opinion poll, 71% people (out of
3000 respondents) do not think that the
long March will accomplish the intended
goals. I am one of those who voted with
them. This is all Pakistan needs,
another Mullah who has the ability to
talk to the dead, obviously reflects
that he has been reading the Hadeeth
while ignoring the Quran.
Pakistan’s political arena is nothing
but a circus of thieves and thugs who

other than the loot and pillage, the
only thing the rascals are good at.

Dear Rubina Faisal shiba and Masud Shaikh sahib
I watched the interview with rapt attention. It is an excellent
presentation. Please continue to present such exhilarating and
enlightening talks. They, however, need a much wider audience and we
have to think of spreading out the word more widely in the diaspora
and even outside.
No Doubt it was very informative and important
programe on blasphemy law, Dr Tahir qazi was
birlliant and you did very well to exract wise
thoughts from him. I specially noted his strong
emphasis."KAY AGAR KOI YEH DALIL DAY KAY AISAY LAWS
AUR JAGAH BHI HAIN TU YEH BAT ATAL HAY KAY PAKISTAN

Syed H. Haider
Thanks for emailing me the contact. I have very attentively heard
the talk of Dr. Tahir Qazi on Dastak TV Toronto compered by you. He
explained the things in detail in a very nice way on the Law of
Blasphemy. I agree with him that In Pakistan, we have religious
extremists and terrorists backed by Saudi Arabia and some other Gulf
states. These are Wahabbis who kill the Sunnis, Shias, Ahmedis and
Christians. They are foreign agents and must be condemned and taken
to task with iron hands.
The law of blasphemy has nothing to do with religious extremism.
This law is not the Quranic law. It is the man made law known as the
law of land. It is not against the Christians as propagated by the
Westerners and the Americans. The law of blasphemy exists in many
countries. Hitherto, not a single Muslim or non-Muslim has been
hanged on committing blasphemy. Pakistan is an Islamic State and can
not permit any sacrilegious activities. I agree with Dr. Qazi that
Pakistan should be a secular country. In the modern political
terminology, the word secular does not mean irreligious but
pluralistic, progressive, inclusive, moderate and tolerant society
respecting and protecting all races and religions. The founder of
Pakistan Mr. Jinnah desired Pakistan to be a moderate Islamic
welfare state but the religious hard liners supported by General
Zia-ul Haq made Pakistan the hub of religious extremism. Every
progressive and moderate Muslim must condemn religious extremism.
The law of blasphemy needs radical changes. We must see that justice
is done. This law is like a deterrent in a traditional society like
Pakistan. The man who commits blasphemy is produced before the
court. If there is no judicial procedure executed, then the one who
commits blasphemy has all the chances to face the wrath of the
infuriated mass and get killed along with his whole family. This law
must not be misused as it is misused in the case of Rimsh Masih. The
minor girl can not be convicted under the Islamic law. I pity the
police and the courts of Pakistan. It satisfies us that the court
has ordered for her release on medical reports. He should have not
been imprisoned. It has, unnecessarily, brought bad name to Islam
and Pakistan. You have asked about the definition of blasphemy from
Dr. Tahir Qazi. Blasphemy does not mean difference of opinion. It
means to degrade, disgrace, deride, abjure, vilify and abuse the
holy name and position of God, Prophet Mohammad and holy Quran. Will
the Israelis permit any one to burn the Torah? Will the French and
British permit to desecrate the Bible? Will the Chinese permit to
burn the Red Book of Mao? Will the Hindus permit to burn the Gita?
Then why the Westerners are expecting from us that the blasphemer
should not be tried in the court? It is not the freedom of speech or
writing. In 1886, the British made the law of blasphemy to stop
religious riots and rifts. Every cultured man must learn to respect
the faith of others. The book of Smith titled "On Liberty" should
be read before knowing the real meanings of freedom of speech.
A few years ago, I had presented a dissertation in Toronto, Canada
on the Law of Blasphemy. The meeting as arranged by Dr. Khalid
Sohail under Family of the Heart Forum. I will e-mail you the
dissertation soon. I appreciate the rational approach of Dr. Qazi on
the subject. We must interpret Islam on progressive and secular
lines but the blasphemy must not be permitted in any State.
Dr. Maqsood Jafri
M/S Rubina Faisal,
Thank you very much for conducting a very
thought provoking and important program on
blasphemy law on Rawal TV which is being
misused to indulge in terrorism and killings
and the position of our minorities is
becoming very acute. This blasphemy law was
introduced by the ex dictator Ziaul Haq to
please the Mullahs to remain in power by
exploiting Islam to the maximum extent. The
learned speaker, Dr. Tahir Qazi has spoke in
favor of a secular Pakistan with very good
arguments but the very word 'secular's will
bring the wrath of Mullah on him because
they are very strong. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
took the decision to make Turkey a secular
state to end the religious exploitation and
extremism in those days.
Now Pakistan being an Islamic State and
Islam being the state religion, therefore
all Masajid and Madressahs should be
nationalized and religious parties and
groups banned to end all exploitation,
deviations, extremism as in Saudi Arabia and
other Arab countries. All religious
literature should also be under government
control to prevent hatred, exploitation,
sectarianism, Maslak and party interests
etc. which divide our Muslims lacking
Quranic knowledge. Further in Pakistan due
to rise in religiosity/extremism instead of
remaining united in the name of Islam we are
more divided on the basis of sects, Maslak,
Fiqah, Pir, Faqir, Demi God, Taghoot,
religious groups and party basis so much so
we can not celebrate Eid on one day and our
Masajid are also divided on sectarian,
Maslak and party basis resulting in killings
and hatred. Islam is a peaceful and
progressive religion and therefore we should
bring peace on the religious front to keep
the country and its people united through
nationalization stated above. The minorities
should be free to practice their religion
and manage their institutions well under
government protection and subsidy also if
Quaide Azam never ever said that Pakistan
will be a religious state as he himself was
not a Mullah and neither the Muslim League
was a Mullah/religious party. The Mullahs
actually opposed Pakistan on the basis that
partition will divide the Muslims and the
left over Muslims in India will become
slaves of Hindus and will be subject to
discrimination. But after creation of
Pakistan and taking advantage of the
political wranglings thereafter, they
invented a new slogan that "Pakistan Ka
Matalb Kya La Illaha Illalla" which meant to
say that it will be ruled by the Mullahs
only in the name of Islam. I would request
you to arrange such discussion and if
possible hold a seminar also. Please see my
article in Urdu times, Toronto dated 29th
Aug. 2012 (mag section) onward on the role
of our Masajid to serve as community centers
and project Islam correctly in the West for
adjustment in the mainstream society.

In your recent column, you have correctly listed “16” KEYA, though
your list is not complete, we may still count these “16 KEYA” as
major causes of our total breakdown. Now I have no hope as for any

up the HOPE that means the there is no point to return. “AlamTab

Very excellent views. Thanks. The fact which we deliberately ignore
or fail to understand is that Muslims need strict Qanoon (law) with
Qazi Courts. In Arabia particularly Saudi Arabia where I worked in a
responsible position as Adm. Officer in a project part allotted to
Pakistan (King Khalid Military City, Hafar al Batin ), I came across
various incidents in which our workers were caught and punished. One
Senior Engineer when he landed his visa had expired by few hours
only. But he was sent back. One driver had given a ride to Saudi
Family to Dharan in our bus. He was a police officer (SHO) going
back after leave. The next day this driver was caught at the
intersection of a road when he could not stop his bus before red
signal. He was locked up by the Shurta in the same police station
where the concerned SHO was posted. But he expressed his inability
to help him. The driver was finally fined which was paid by the SHO
as a gesture.
In Pakistan we need Shurta Police and Qazi or Summary Court system
with a new, short, non exploitable, to the point and hard Penal Code
instead of the existing bogus and failed Anglo Saxon system of
Police and Judiciary along with PPC and other laws depending on lot
of paper work, exploitation and litigation. The big Corrupt leaders
and Criminals will never be punished as they engage Big and costly
advocates who are experts in falsehood, manipulation of cases,
altering proofs and evidences, bribing the officials, purchasing the
witnesses, obtaining endless adjournments, obtaining bogus leave on
medical grounds to big criminals, bails, stay orders, needless
arguments and counter arguments, delaying tactics, etc. etc. Mr.
Zardari's case continued for 8 years and the judge failed to give a
judgement and ultimately Pervez Musharaff fed up with the
'litigation' judicial system let him off. The big Advocates are
billionaires as their sole aim is to protect BIG CRIMINALS from
punishment through hook or crook. They are the enemies of the law
and the country as they don't want law to prevail. It is anti
Islamic that a big and costly advocate can get you a favourable
judgment as against an average advocate. Hence the duties of
advocates should be to assist and help their clients on uniform
fixed fee basis. Moreover in our Islamic State no one takes a Oath
on Holy Quran in the courts to create Allah's fear. Hence falsehood
prevails. But in the West if the advocate indulge in lying, his
license is cancelled and is punished under Perjury Law. Not so in
our beloved and corrupt country. That is why the corrupt say openly
Pakistan is a good country where big criminals are not punished.
Hence our corrupt leaders supported by corrupt advocates will never
ever change this exploited systems. Only the honest citizens,
patriots, intelligentsia, honest media, honest leaders can carry a
long struggle to change the entire the police and judicial
As far as the exploitation of Islam is concerned resulting in
extremism, Mullahism, sectarianism, terrorism, suicide bombings,
killings of opponents, Maslak and Fiqah differences, blowing up of
girls schools, video shops, even barber shops in tribal areas of the
North, the only solution is to nationalise all Masajid and Madresahs
and ban relgious parties, groups, Tehriks as they instead of
projecting Islam and creating unity in our country, have actually
divided our people into various sects, Maslak, Fiqah, personal
cults, parties, groups, Pirs, Aalims, Faqirs, Aamils, Mazar worship
etc. Pakistan is an Islamic State with Islam as a state religion and
as such all religious matters, Masajid, Madressahs, religious
literature should be the duty of the state not individual and
parties as in Arab Countries.

Rtd. Adm./Legal Offcer, ADA/CAA, Karachi.
I understand your emotion as a Pakistani and it is a very good piece
of write up. You presented your feelings in very nice words.
Keep it up.
This is a good program. Gen. Zia after toppling Bhutoo had a
personal ambition to rule Pakistan till death. He had to eliminate
Mr. Bhutoo who was a great challenge to him. Zia exploited Islam to
fool the masses that he will impose Islamic Nizam shortly and then
created a bogus non elected so called Sharia parliament with no
powers. He conducted a bogus referendum in the name of Islam to get
himself nominated as our 'President'. Later he conducted bogus
elections on non party basis and nominated Junejo as PM later to be
dismissed for ordering an enquiry into the scandal of Ojhri Camp
I watched with interest, your interview
Tahir qazi. Dr. Qazi with marginal
information about Baluchistan ended up
repeating the same mantra that is being
touted in US Congress. The annexation of
Baluchistan was illegal and forcefully
deserves to be an independent state.
that the same as what occurred in
Hyderabad Deccan, Kashmir and Goa? Why
do we keep forgetting that aspect. The
reason why Baluchistan needed to
be annexed into Pakistan was simply
because it needed a buffer between
Afghanistan and Iran. Both these
countries were hostile to Pakistan at
that time in favour with India.
glad you pointed out very clearly, it is
the leaders of Baluchistan who, like all
other leaders, are the culprit. All
these people want is to get rich on the
backs of poor helpless peasants.
simply Dr. Qazi himself wishes to
improve the quality of stitching on his
recourse is to pour in funds to elevate
the standard of living for the Baluch
population. We need industry,
universities and security of life in
that territory. Chance of such
improvement are very low if Baluchistan
breaks away and is swamped
with predatory nations plundering its
resources and enriching the pockets of
the leaders who sit in the West smoking
Cuban Cigars, drinking French
wines, indulging on Scotch Whiskey and
driving Rolls Royces. What benefit does
a poor Baluch get from such
needs to change its policies and
politicians else face
its disintegration. That can only happen
when the poor are made to understand
that they have the prowess to change it
request to you, as a broadcaster, is
to appeal to the masses who do not
understand English Language. Speak in
Panjabi, Sindhi, Pashtu and Baluch.
Repeat what you said and make them
understand they have to rise up and be
counted. That is the only action that
has the potential to create positive
potential to create positive results.

I hope all is well with you. After a long time, I received your
fresh column. I enjoyed reading it and was remembered of the days
when 10 years ago Mr. Imran Khan had invited me at his office in
Islamabad and we had two hours exclusive meeting. he had asked me to
join his party. As, I was and still am in Pakistan Peoples' Party ,
I thanked him for his gracious offer. I have mentioned this meeting
in my book titled" The Ideals of Bhutto" specially written at the
wish of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto in 2007. Last month this book has
been re-published by National Book Foundation, Pakistan with the
message of President Asif Ali Zardari.
So far as the politics of Mr. Imran Khan is concerned, it has many
facets and folds. Why is he being sponsored and supported the ISI?
It can be discussed with you but not written on inter net. But I
agree with you that he is an honest leader and feels for his
countrymen. He desires change and I pray for his success and hope
him to deliver. Let us see what happens. Your column is replete with
your patriotic feelings and I appreciate your conviction with all

1st of all i have to say that you way of writing is fabulous, the
way in which you described the personality of Sir Imran Khan. and
the good thing is this that we have no right to intervene any one's

Rubina – Congratulation. Your column ‘Surprise over Surprise’
has turned into a great success. Keep it up. I am glad I have
learnt one thing thru your website. The site is not most wanted
only among those who Love, MISS, ACKNOWLEDGE and BELONG
to Pakistan but your site is also seen by those who do belong to
Pakistan but per their own mental state upfront they act and
masquerade that they have nothing to do with Pakistan. In both
cases a common thread is ‘Pakistan’ and this does sign it
will remain in our hearts no matter what kind of passport we now
We Pakistani came to North America, we left our Home Country for
our own reasons. To me, this migration should not be taken as a
matter of pride but indeed, it is a ‘Best of Worst’ accretion we
went for. I regret those who show their de-attachment with
Pakistan, Urdu and Islam as a fashion just as they carry blue
passport. This band of people need to realize when they traveled
abroad, Pakistani Passport was in upper pocket of their
shirt that they had on, otherwise they would have yet been living
in their own “Village” and driving “Tanga”
instead of “City” and “BMW” respectively.
Never forget, we owe to Pakistan, we need to pay back to Pakistan
and we need to stay attached with Pakistan, Urdu, Punjabi or other
languages we speak there. I am glad you are doing this already
with your pen and you need to continue. Never get predisposed from
those who do committed to memory with
Karachi, Lahore, Urdu, Punjabi, First School, First Cycle’s Ride
First Flight they took,
but do not accept they yet remember everything. They always get
vanished by time – Good Luck - Zoha
Dear Rubina Faisal jee,
Salaams. First belated eid mubarik to you.
This article of yours really does present the actual picture in all
its forms and shapes of hypocrisy that exist in us as a nation. Amir
Liaquat is simply a manifestation of that and you are right in
saying why be surprised when we have moved away from all those grave
issues, concerns, the daily despair and hopelessness that exists
within the society and the criminal behaviour and attitudes that
keep up the good work and inshallah your efforts will not go wasted.

I had never
heard the name of Amir Lyaqat before until I received an email with
a You-Tube link and the subject line reading about some fake
scholar. Out of curiosity, I watched the clip for a few minutes and
it was not difficult to assess the kind of trash I was looking at.
It seems the video has been shared with more or less every one
around the globe within a few days. Only I have received 3 copies
of the link from three different people.
As far as using
the colourful language is concerned, occasionally, I suppose, most
of us end up using when pushed against the wall. But using that
language with no justifiable reason and using it as a figure of
speech makes this person simply the lowest of the lowest kind
riff-raff. I don’t know what is he doctor of, but only today some
one mentioned that his degree is fake too. So the guy is caught red
handed selling his fake antics. The scholars and responsible people
do not behave the way this character is caught doing in front of the
camera. I admire the member of his team who was bold enough to
uncover yet another fake – I thought all the fakes are in the
parliament and various legislative assemblies of Pakistan.
Make no mistake,
the people have not forgotten or overlooked the 16 hour electric
load shedding or the absence of gas in their kitchens. They have
been talking about them ever since the PPP thugs took over, and I am
sure they will still be talking about it for the next 10 years. But
the discovery of real Amir Lyaqat provides a break in the monotony
and provides them with a change of pace with additional
column, I am having a little difficulty to establish whether you are
upset finding that someone can stoop so low as this fake scholar, or
are you upset that people are celebrating the discovery of yet
They will soon
forget all about him, but not before he forgets about his deceptive
business and looks for a job in a different field that does not
expose his face – such as, for example, a clown’s job. The public
will never see his real face. As long as he does not repeat his
favourite colourful words, people will never know his true identity.
He can live happily ever after hiding behind the clown’s mask.
آپ نے ڈاکٹر طاہر القادری پر سجدہ کروانے کا الزام
لگا دیا ہے۔ کیا آپ نے ان کے اس فعل کی وضاحت کہیں سے جاننے کی کوشش کی
ہے۔ افسوس ہوتا ہے ۔ ایسے لوگوں پر جو بنا جانے فتوی جاری کرتے ہیں۔
Great job to bring it to
the surface Do not defend any behavior or an individual. Agreed to
disagree. I think that it is okay to expose Amer's two-faced views
and behavior, as it has to be started from some where. However, it
must not stop here, it should continue. Now the time has come that
all corrupt politicians, corrupt armed forces chiefs, corrupt
executives and so called ulema should be exposed to cleanse the
watan e aziz.

السلام علیکم محترمہ روبینہ فیصل صاحبہ
امید ہے مزاج گرامی بخیر ہوں گے اور آپ رمضان المبارک کی سعادتوں سے
دامن مراد بھر رہی ہوں گی۔
میں آپکی تحاریر کا خاموش قاری ہوں جبھی تو آپکا ہر کالم ، ہر نئی
تحریر میرے ای میل پر موصول ہوجاتی ہے۔
عامر لیاقت سے متعلق تحریر میں بھی آپ نے اپنا غیر جانبدارانہ و حقیقت
پسندانہ معیار قائم رکھا ہے۔
مجھے صرف ایک گذارش کرنا تھی کہ انٹرنیٹ و میڈیا ٹیکنالوجی کے منفی
رویے پر بھی ہمیں نظر رکھنا چاہیے۔ آپ نے ڈاکٹر طاہر القادری کا ذکر جس
انداز میں دوغلے پن کی ایک مثال کے طور پر پیش کیا ہے۔ اس پر مجھے آپ
جیسی علمی و پختہ فکر شخصیت کی معلومات پر حیرت ہوئی ہے۔ اسکے علاوہ
بھی کسی پیر صاحب کے ہاتھ و پاوں چومنے کو آپ نے غیر اسلامی سمجھتے
ہوئے نشانہ تنقید بنایا ہے۔
حقیقت یہ ہے کہ ڈاکٹر طاہر القادری کو سجدہ نہیں کیا جاتا اور نہ ہی
مذکورہ یوٹیوب کلپ میں سجدہ کیا جارہا ہے۔ وہ پاوں چومنے کا منظر ہے۔
جسے یار لوگوں نے اٹھا کر سجدہ کا عنوان دے کر دلی بغض و عناد کا اظہار
کیا۔ وگرنہ ڈاکٹر طاہر القادری اپنے عقیدتمندان سے سجدہ بطور معمول
کرواتے تو دنیا بھر میں ایسے ہزارہا مناظر دیکھنے کو مل جاتے کیونکہ آپ
یقینا جانتی ہیں کہ انکے عقیدتمندان، انکی تنظیم منہاج القرآن کے
ممبران اور انکے تنظیمی سنٹرز و مراکز دنیا بھر میں موجود ہیں اور
پاکستان کے بھی ہر شہر و قصبے تک انکے مراکز پھیلے ہیں۔ حیرت ہے کہ
پرنس آغا خان وغیرھم جو واقعی اپنے مریدوں سے سجدے کرواتے ہیں ان جیسوں
پر تو ایک لفظ نہیں لکھا جاتا جبکہ وطن عزیز اور دین اسلام کی بے لوث
خدمت کرنے والا شخص جس نے دہشت گردی کے خلاف مبسوط فتوی جاری کرکے دنیا
میں اسلام و مسلمانوں کے چہرے سے دہشتگردی جیسی مکروہ کالک دھونے کی
کوشش کی ۔ اس پر تنقید کی توپیں کھول دی جاتی ہیں۔ خیر یہ ایک الگ
فی الحال آپکی خدمت میں اتنا عرض کرنا مقصود ہے کہ اولیائے کرام، مشائخ
عظام ، بزرگان دین و اساتذہ کرام کے ہاتھ پاوں چومنا سنت نبوی صلی اللہ
علیہ وسلم، سنت صحابہ ، سنت تابعین اور سنت بزرگان قرون اولی ہے۔ یہ
عمل آداب اسلامی کا حصہ ہے۔ ایمانی تسلی و تشفی کے لیے چند حوالہ جات
عرض ہیں ۔
سنت رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم سے ہاتھ و پاوں چومنا
١۔ زارع بن عامر - جو وفدِ عبد القیس کے ساتھ آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ
وسلم کی بارگاہ میں حاضر ہوئے تھے - سے مروی ہے:
لَمَّا قَدِمْنَا الْمَدِيْنَةَ فَجَعَلْنَا نَتَبَادَرُ مِنْ
رَوَاحِلِنَا، فَنُقَبِّلُ يَدَ رَسُولِ اﷲِصلی الله عليه وآله وسلم
''جب ہم مدینہ منورہ حاضر ہوئے تو اپنی سواریوں سے کود کر حضور نبی
اکرم صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کے دستِ اقدس اور پاؤں مبارک کو چومنے
اس حدیث کو صحاح ستہ میں سے سنن ابی داود (کتاب الادب، باب قبلۃ الجسد،
٤: ٣٥٧، رقم: ٥٢٢٥) میں روایت کیا گیا ہے۔ علاوہ ازیں اسے امام بیہقی
نے السنن الکبری (7: 102) میں اور امام طبرانی نے اپنی دو کتب المعجم
الکبیر (٥: ٢٧٥، رقم: ٥٣١٣) اور المعجم الاوسط (1: 133، رقم: ۴۱۸) میں
روایت کیا ہے۔
٢۔ امام بخاری نے ''الادب المفرد'' میں باب تقبيل الرِّجل قائم کیا ہے
یعنی ''پاؤں کو بوسہ دینے کا بیان۔'' اس باب کے اندر صفحہ نمبر ۳۳۹ پر
حدیث نمبر ۹۷۵ کے تحت انہوں نے مذکورہ بالا حدیث کو حضرت وازع بن عامر
رضی اللہ عنہ سے ان الفاظ میں روایت کیا ہے، وہ فرماتے ہیں:
قَدِمْنَا, فَقِيْلَ: ذَاکَ رَسُوْلُ اﷲِ صلی الله عليه وآله وسلم.
فَأَخَذْنَا بِيَدَيْهِ وَرِجْلَيْهِ نُقَبِّلُهَا.
''ہم مدینہ حاضر ہوئے تو (ہمیں) کہا گیا: وہ رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ
وآلہ وسلم ہیں۔ پس ہم آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کے مبارک ہاتھوں اور
قدموں سے لپٹ گئے اور اُنہیں بوسہ دینے لگے۔''
یہ الفاظ خاص مفہوم کے حامل ہیں۔ راوی کہتے ہیں کہ ہم نے صرف ہاتھ
مبارک پکڑنے پر ہی اکتفا نہ کیا بلکہ ہاتھوں کے علاوہ پاؤں مبارک کو
بھی بوسہ دینے کا عمل جاری رکھا درآں حالیکہ ہم نے آپ صلی اللہ علیہ
وآلہ وسلم کے ہاتھ اور پاؤں مبارک پکڑ رکھے تھے۔
٣۔ امام ترمذی نے اس مضمون پر ایک حدیث حضرت صفوان بن عسّال رضی اللہ
عنہ سے بیان کی ہے۔ وہ فرماتے ہیں کہ قومِ یہود کے بعض افراد حضور نبی
اکرم صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کی خدمت میں حاضر ہوئے اور سوال کرنے کے
بعد اعلانیہ گواہی دی کہ آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم اللہ کے سچے رسول
فَقَبَّلُوْا يَدَيْهِ وَرِجْلَيْهِ. وَقَالُوا: نَشْهَدُ أَنَّکَ
نَبِيٌّ.''انہوں نے آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کے ہاتھ اور پاؤں مبارک
کو بوسہ دیا، اور کہا: ہم گواہی دیتے ہیں کہ بے شک آپ صلی اللہ علیہ
وآلہ وسلم نبی ہیں۔''
اس حدیث مبارکہ کو امام نسائی نے السنن (کتاب تحریم الدم، ۷: ۱۱۱، رقم:
۴۰۷۸) میں اور امام ابن ماجہ نے السنن (کتاب الادب، باب الرجل یقبّل ید
الرجل، ٢: ١٢٢١، رقم: ٣٧٠٥) میں روایت کیا ہے۔ امام ترمذی نے اس حدیث
کو الجامع میں دو جگہ روایت کیا ہے: پہلی بار ابواب الاستئذان والآداب
میں باب فی قبلۃ الید والرجل (٥: ٧٧، رقم: ٢٧٣٣) میں اور دوسری بار
ابواب التفسیر کے باب ومن سورۃ بنی اسرائیل (۵: ۳۰۵، رقم: ۳۱۴۴) میں۔
امام احمد بن حنبل نے المسند (۴: ۲۳۹، ۲۴۰) میں، امام حاکم نے المستدرک
(۱: ۵۲، رقم: ۲۰) میں، امام طیالسی نے المسند (ص: ۱۶۰، رقم: ۱۱۶۴) میں
اور امام مقدسی نے الاحادیث المختارہ (٨: ٢٩، رقم: ١٨) میں روایت کیا
اتنے اجل محدثین کے اس حدیث کو روایت کرنے اور اس سے استشہاد کرنے کے
باوجود بھی کوئی متعصب کہہ سکتا ہے کہ یہ ایک یہودی کا فعل تھا، ہم اسے
کس طرح لازمی شہادت کا درجہ دے سکتے ہیں۔ اس سوچ پر سوائے افسوس کے کیا
کہا جا سکتا ہے کہ معترض کو یہودی کا عمل تو نظر آگیا مگر جس کے ساتھ
کیا جا رہا ہے وہ بابرکت ہستی نظر نہیں آئی۔ حضور صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ
وسلم نے یہود کو تقبیل سے منع نہیں فرمایا تو یہ آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ
وسلم کی سنتِ تقریری ہوا۔
٤۔ علامہ ابن تیمیہ کے جلیل القدر شاگرد حافظ ابن کثیر سورۃ المائدہ کی
آیت نمبر ١٠١ کی تفسیر میں ایک واقعہ بیان کرتے ہوئے لکھتے ہیں کہ ایک
بار حضور نبی اکرم صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کسی بات پر خفا ہو کر جلال
میں آگئے تو:
فَقَامَ إِلَيْهِ عُمَرُ بْنُ الْخَطَّابِ رضي الله عنه فَقَبَّلَ
رِجْلَهُ وَقَالَ: يَا رَسُوْلَ اﷲِ، رَضِيْنَا بِاﷲِ رَبًّا وَبِکَ
نَبِيًّا وَبِالإِْسْلَامِ دِيْنًا وَبِالْقُرْآنِ إِمَامًا فَاعْفُ
عَنَّا عَفَا اﷲُ عَنْکَ فَلَمْ يَزَلْ بِهِ حَتَّی رَضِيَ.
'' حضرت عمر رضی اللہ عنہ کھڑے ہوئے اور انہوں نے آپ صلی اللہ علیہ
وآلہ وسلم کے قدم مبارک چوم کر عرض کیا: یا رسول اﷲ! ہم اﷲ تعالیٰ کے
رب ہونے، آپ کے نبی ہونے اور اسلام کے دین ہونے اور قرآن کے امام و
راہنما ہونے پر راضی ہیں، ہمیں معاف فرما دیجئے۔ اﷲ تعالیٰ آپ سے مزید
راضی ہو گا۔ پس حضرت عمر رضی اللہ عنہ مسلسل عرض کرتے رہے یہاں تک کہ
آپ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم راضی ہو گئے۔''
اس روایت کو دیگر مفسرین نے بھی متعلقہ آیت کی تفسیر میں بیان کیا ہے۔
اب سوال پیدا ہوتا ہے کہ حضرت عمر رضی اللہ عنہ جیسے اجل صحابی کا حضور
نبی اکرم صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کے قدم مبارک چومنا اور خود تاجدار
کائنات صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کا انہیں منع نہ فرمانا کیا (معاذ
اللہ)عقیدہ توحید کی خلاف ورزی تھا۔
۵۔ امام مقری (م ۳۸۱ھ) اپنی کتاب تقبیل الید (ص: ۶۴، رقم: ۵) میں حضرت
بریدہ رضی اللہ عنہ سے ایک واقعہ نقل کرتے ہوئے لکھتے ہیں کہ ایک مرتبہ
ایک اعرابی بارگاہ رسالت مآب صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم میں حاضر ہوا اور
اس نے آکر عرض کیا: میں نے اسلام قبول کر لیا ہے لیکن میں کچھ مزید
چاہتا ہوں تاکہ میرے یقین میں اضافہ ہوجائے۔ پھر حضور نبی اکرم صلی
اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم نے اجازت دی تو اعرابی کے بلاوے پر ایک درخت اس کے
پاس آیا اور اس نے کہا: یا رسول اللہ! آپ پر سلام ہو۔ اس کے بعد طویل
روایت ہے اور آخر میں اعرابی نے تمام نشانیاں دیکھنے کے بعد عرض کیا:
يا رسول الله! أئذن لي أن أقبل رأسك ورجلك.
"اے اللہ کے رسول! مجھے اجازت دیجیے کہ میں آپ کاسر اقدس اور قدم مبارک
اس کے بعد روایت میں ہے کہ حضور نبی اکرم صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم نے
اس اعرابی کو اجازت مرحمت فرمائی۔
ہاتھ و پاوں چومنا حضور نبی اکرم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے بعد صحابہ کرام
و آئمہ کبار کا معمول
کسی کے ذہن میں یہ سوال پیدا ہوسکتا ہے کہ قدم بوسی صرف حضور نبی اکرم
صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کے لیے مخصوص ہے۔ لہٰذا ذیل میں ہم اِس اَمر
کا جائزہ لیتے ہیں کہ غیر انبیاء صالحین اور مشائخ عظام اور اکابر
اسلام کی دست بوسی و قدم بوسی کی کیا حقیقت ہے؟
یہ ایک حقیقت ہے کہ علماے کرام اور مشائخ عظام کی حضور نبی اکرم صلی
اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم اور آ پ صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کے دین کی خدمت
کی نسبت سے تعظیم و احترام بجا لانا منشاء اِسلام ہے۔ اِن کی تعظیم کو
شرک کہنا باطل اور ان سے بغض رکھنا نفاق کی علامت ہے۔ کتب سیر و احادیث
کا مطالعہ کرنے والا ہر شخص یہ بات جانتا ہے کہ اکابرین کی قدم بوسی
ہمیشہ اہل محبت و ادب کا معمول رہی ہے۔ اِس سلسلے میں چند نظائر پیش
١۔ حضرت صہیب رضی اللہ عنہ، حضرت عباس رضی اللہ عنہ کے غلام تھے، وہ
بیان کرتے ہیں:
رَأَيْتُ عَلِيًّا يُقَبِّلُ يَدَ الْعَبَّاسِ وَرِجْلَيْهِ وَيَقُوْلُ:
يَا عَمِّ ارْضَ عَنِّي.
''میں نے حضرت علی رضی اللہ عنہ کو حضرت عباس رضی اللہ عنہ کے ہاتھ اور
پاؤں چومتے دیکھا اور آپ ساتھ ساتھ کہتے جاتے تھے: اے چچا! مجھ سے راضی
اسے امام بخاری نے الادب المفرد (ص: ٣٣٩، رقم: ٩٧٦) میں، امام ذہبی نے
سیر أعلام النبلاء (٢: ٩٤) میں، امام مزی نے تہذیب الکمال (١٣: ٢٤٠،
رقم: ٢٩٠٥) میں اور امام مقری نے تقبیل الید (ص: ٧٦، رقم: ١٥) میں
روایت کیا ہے۔
٣۔ اسی طرح امام بخاری کے بعد امت مسلمہ کے نزدیک ثقہ ترین محدث امام
مسلم کے شہر نیشاپور میں جب امام بخاری تشریف لائے اور امام مسلم ان کے
پاس حاضر ہوئے تو اَئمہ کے اَحوال پر مبنی تمام کتب میں درج ہے کہ امام
مسلم نے امام بخاری کا ماتھا چوما اور پھر ان سے اجازت مانگی کہ:دعني
حتی أقبّل رجليک، يا أستاذ الأستاذين وسيد المحدّثين وطبيب الحديث في
''اے استاذوں کے استاذ، سید المحدّثین اور عللِ حدیث کے طبیب! آپ مجھے
اجازت دیں تو میں آپ کے پاؤں کا بوسہ لے لوں۔''
اِمام بخاری اور امام مسلم کا یہ واقعہ ابن نقطہ نے 'التقیید لمعرفۃ
رواۃ السنن والمسانید (١: ٣٣)'میں، امام ذہبی نے 'سیر اعلام النبلاء
(١٢: ٤٣٢، ٤٣٦)' میں، امام نووی نے 'تہذیب الاسماء واللغات (١: ٨٨)'
میں، حافظ ابن حجر عسقلانی نے مقدمۃ فتح الباری (ص: ٤٨٨)' میں اور
برصغیر کے نام ور غیر مقلد نواب صدیق حسن قنوجی نے 'الحطۃ فی ذکر
الصحاح الستۃ (ص: ٣٣٩)' میں روایت کیا ہے۔
٤۔ علامہ شروانی شافعی 'حواشی (٤: ٨٤)' میں لکھتے ہیں:
قد تقرّر أنه يسنّ تقبيل يد الصالح بل ورجله.
''یہ بات پایۂ تحقیق کو پہنچ چکی ہے کہ صالح شخص کے ہاتھ اور پاؤں
چومنا مسنون عمل ہے۔''
محترمہ روبینہ فیصل صاحبہ ۔
امید ہے مندرجہ بالا حوالہ جات شریعت اسلامیہ کے اس اصول کو واضح کرنے
کے لیے کافی ہیں۔ اور آپ آئندہ کسی تحریر میں ان حوالہ جات کی روشنی
میں انصاف سے کام لیتے ہوئے ان آداب اسلامی کا ذکر جائز و مثبت انداز
میں ضرور فرمائیں گی۔ کہ مجھے آپ جیسی علمی و انصاف پسند شخصیت سے یہی

– You have correctly listed out flaw of our multi dimensioned
culture and society. I was one of them who did not like what we
have found over You Tube. The reason I also reacted is not Aamir
Liaqat, his language or his act in front of TV Camera as I know
same language and dual faces are now our identification though
it never appears on our National ID Cards. My only concern was
that once Video was released within 02:00 hours he had posted
his clarification on Twitter. This has turned the story to
right direction indeed.
A fact of
the matter is, if the Video is fake and EDITed, his ignorance would
be the best revenge. He also explained that six years old Aamir has
now been changed. Now he ends his program with DUAA and he also
conducts 27th Ramzan DUAA etc. All his explanation and
his recent column technically endorsed that Video is not fake. Who
is here to recall if this Video is six years old (as he is now
changed and he only speaks Islamic Language), that time he was a
clean shave good looking show-biz person and I agree he was not
hosting “Binaca Hit Parade” songs program but he was yet engaged
with Mazhabi Program.
your information, you have correctly noticed his expensive
fashion/designed attire. Let me tell you the history. From Geo to
QTV/ARY, his wardrobe is being managed by his wife who is running
her Fashion Garment business. Here Aamir is honest – Ghar Ki Bat,
Ghar Ka Business Ghar Mein He Reh Raha Hey.
Please keep your good work up.
- You have touched very important aspect of life. Jealousy is
like a fire that burns the jealous person but the fool does not
know how he is marring his own person.

It was a very nice article. Thanks. In talk shows the
participants just talk without any sense. In our society about Five
million HAVES (WADERAS/SETHS, Mill Owners, And Big business) control
every thing. The means of Production, distribution, Banks,
Insurance, and almost every thing which matters is controlled by
them including POLITICS!!! They are LEECHES. They employ MULLAH for
their purposes. I should continue this dialogue but its of no use.
Every one knows the Cause but none has the remedy rather dare not!!!
Thx dear Rubina for ur links. I really having read ur
columns have fallen in lov with your scholarship. I wish to meet u
one that lucky day.

This is just to acknowledge that your columns turn me on and my days
are inspired knowing that our girls have the courage and skills to
define the root cause of problems. Unfortunately they cannot do more
than that but at least they spread the truth. You
are a brave girl and very patriotic. I pray to Allah that He gives
you strength and courage to continue your mission. Our hopes are on
young people like you.
With lots of prayers,
i appreciate that you have examined the
High-handedness of Army, Rangers & of Policefrom a different angle
BUT the FACT IS THE FACT. You cannot justify their action simply
because Anti Pakistan Forces are fanning hatred against Pak Forces
who are the custodians of our nuclear plant and our sovereignty.
There are so many realities which we (Pakistanis)
are not prepared to accept. For example,
The Kashmir Issue. To be honest, neither Kashmir
is, nor Pakistan has any Right to demand for a Referendum. For
your information, I am forwarding copy of my letter
to Dr. Khursheed of Jamat-e-Islami on this subject. It was
published in Jung Lahore and in some Indian Urdu newspaper but
remained un-answered by J.I. or any Pakistani medium.
Pakistan's Army & Defense Forces want this issue
to remain un-solved for their own survival. If this problem
issolved, we need not to have such a large army and spend 75% of
the National Budget for Defense. ---- amy is our Biggest Burden
particularly once we have become a nuclear power..
Your :owing Uncle : SKY.
Your column is excellent as usual. we must not condemn our army.
Our army is dedicated to our country. But we must condemn the
generals who impose martial law on Pakistanis and treat us like
dogs. We must resist against all dictators and corrupt
Dear Rubina Sahibah,
I am glad it’s you who wrote the satire, ‘Adab main Muqam’ and not
someone like me, devoid of sense of appreciation for poetry and
literature. I am not sure whether you are praising all those
literature lovers from Indo-Pak continent who have emigrated to
various western countries with a passion to serve the literature
from the place of their origin or are you in fact critical of them.
In a way, it is commendable as they are propagating their language
and the literature of their land, perhaps extending its life a bit –
in the west, it may eventually die anyway.
Regarding your comments on the act of throwing parties for up to 50
people only to share their latest writings is of course one way, to
ensure a provision of a captive audience obliged to listen and to
repeat certain flattering phrases on regular intervals. This act
also ensures the future invites to such gatherings and confirming at
the same time that they own sophisticated, literary minds, a feather
in their cap, in many circles.
I often wonder, why all the poets and fiction writers must be born
in Indo-Pak continent and all the scientists are born in the west?
Is this a natural phenomenon or merely the result of the peculiar
socio-economic and political conditions that have existed for over
two centuries in India that acts as a catalyst for poetry and what
have you that you can lump under a general heading of Adab? If that
part of the world had created one tenth number of scientists,
compared to the number of Adabi Nasar Parey writers, the region may
have been lot more prosperous today. Isn’t it about time for our
societies to start thinking in terms of advancing in science and
technology instead of coming up with 99 ways to define the beauty of
someone’s eyes, hair, smile, gait and the whole none yards of the
anatomy and how enchanting she appears in the moonlight. I suppose
it is quite understandable – the hot and dry land would trigger
dreams of moon light and music of the rain drops – how scientific,
or is it just romantic? How about a few of us find a Muqam in
Science & technology for a change, that will pay for the rent and
the hydro bills, at least. The payment of rent and hydro bill became
a real issue for Ghalib after Bahader Shah Zafer had been taken for
the steamboat ride in 1857. The Desi Torontonians have had more
Shame-Ghalib and Faiz in the last 5 years than they ever held in
Delhi or Lahore in 50 years.
I hope I have not been too Bay-Adab to the Adbi lot.

JITHEE RAHOO., A VERY GOOD ARTICLE BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL BECAUSE
IN THE PRESNT ADABI CIRCLES,IT IS A CRIME TO SPEAK THE TRUTH .
AMONG OUR TOP WRITERS & POETS, MAJORITY OF THEM HAVE A CRIMINAL
BACKGROUND, BANK FRAUDS, CHEATINGS, ETC.
SOME OF THEM, HAVE ACQUIRED DEGREES FROM "ATLANTIC OCEAN
UNIVERSITY" . I MEAN, . THEY BECAME MASTERS IN SOCIALOGY,
ENGLISH LITERATURE, AND GRADUATES IN ENGINEERING, LAW, ETC, .AS
SOON AS THEY CROSSED THE ATLANTIC OCEAN !
MANY SCHOOL TEACHERS IN PAKISTAN AFTER CROSSING THE ATLANTIC,
BECAME PROFESSORS. FORCED RETIRED (Retired
because of corruptions) CIVIL SERVANTS, BECAME HONOURABLE ADEEB &
CRITIC, ETC ETC.
THE PAKISTANI NEWSPAPER MEDIA IN TORONTO. IS , IN FACT, AGENT OF
THE PRINTERS WHO WOULD NOT ALLOW TO LIFT THE NEWSPAPERS FROM THE
PRINTING HOUSE WITHOUT RECEING THE COST OF NEWSPRINT AND
OF PRINTING.. THE NEWSPAPERS, AS YOU MIGHT BE AWARE, ARE COMPOSED
IN KARACHI OR LAHORE, NON OF THE NEWSPAPERS HAVING LOCAL
ARRANGEMENTS OF COMPOSING ! .80 % NEWS & ARTICLES ARE THE COPIES
OF THOSE WHICH ARE ALREADY PUBLISHED IN PAKISTAN. THEN AFTER
FREE DISTRIBUTION OF THE WEEKLY NEWSPAERS, OUR SO-CALLED
EDITORS, WOULD GO FROM DOOR TO DOOR BEGGING FOR THE
PAYMENT OF THE COST OF ADs PUBLISHED IN THE NEWSPAPER. IS IT
NOT A SHAME THAT ABOUT 26 URDU NEWSPAPERS ARE PUBLISHED
EVERY WEEK BUT WE PAKISTANIS DO NOT HAVE A SINGLE DAILY
NEWSPAPER ! .
SIMILAR IS THE STORY OF PAKISTANI TV & RADIO BROAD-CASTERS.
IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES AND BY THESE PEOPLE, WHAT ADAB
YOU EXPECT ? MAY ALLAH KAREEM PROTECT YOU FROM THE ENMITY OF
THESE EVIL FORCES AND GIVE YOU THE COURAGE TO KEEP ON WRITNG SUCH
DARING TRUTHFUL ARTICLES. AMEEN.

Dear Ms .Rubina Faisal,
I hope all is well with you. Your interview on "Chehray" with Dr.
Pervez Parwazi portrays the factual position of
religious extremism in Pakistan. These hardliners are the enemies
of Islam, Pakistan and humanity. They are brain washed by mullahs
who are the agents of India and Israel.
The points you have raised in your column are vital and potent. I
appreciate your rational and balanced views on this issue. I
congratulate you for such a noble and real Quranic message. With
out moderation, there is no concept of Islam. The middle path is
the best path, is a saying of the holy prophet. The writers and
intellectuals must oppose sectarianism, terrorism and religious
confess that I never read any of your columns but the one you read
out on Chehre was really worth listening. I commend you for
that. It is unfortunate that all people of goodwill condemn
mazhabi junoon in Pakistan but there seems to be no solution.
founder of the country thought that he would mobilize Muslims of
the undivided India in the name of Islam to carve out a country
and then matlab nikal jane ke baad he would declare
country a secular state. He did not realize that Islam
would become a millstone around the neck of each Pakistani.
Dear Ms.Rubina Faisal,
Your column depicts the true
picture of Pakistan. The only thing I will like to add, which you
may please tell Perwazi sb. also is that according to my research
Pakistan was created by the Allies, after WW-II to have an access
to the Soviet Union & China. Indian National Congress was a
leftist, pro Soviet Union Party. If the British left the
Subcontinent without dividing it there was a danger that the
Soviet Union, China & India would make a very strong Axis against

Dear Ms. Rubina,
As usual very touchy column. We live in the age of pigmies. It is
very sorrowful. The dwarfs have become tall and the legs of the
men of stature have been severed by the sword of spite and sloth.

was Mastana or Moeen Akhtar ,all have suffered at the hands of

Rubina Sahiba -
it’s not a story of 39 years and 3 months, it’s a story of 63 years
and 7 months. It’s a story of a continuing mismanagement of
resources by the most rotten and incompetent individuals at the
helm. All the incidents that you have reflected upon in your column
can be analyzed, one after the other as the direct consequences of
ineffective and inapt rulers bungling every thing they had touched.
In the most
recent situation that arose after the arrest of the CIA operative in
Lahore, the primary interest of the rulers was to safeguard their
black money deposited in the American and other foreign banks
against getting frozen in case they fail to deliver the terrorist to
the US. The civilian rulers and the armed forces top brass were all
united in demonstrating their obedience to their masters in
Washington. Since they have the power, they can do any thing they
want, to ensure their personal interests – the national interests
are only a secondary consideration.
Loosing the East
wing, is the consequence of decades of mismanagement by the inapt
rulers. Towards the end, when chips were really down, both Gen.
Yahya and Z. Bhutto played their cards that brought the situation to
an undesirable end. Bhutto had personal interests of becoming the
king even if it meant only half the country.
is fighting a war for its existence – a direct consequence of
American presence in the region since 9/11 and Gen. Musharraf’s
cowardly decisions to accept every American demand only to
legitimize his own rule. The story continues to NRO creating a sham
democracy. The democracy is said to be a system of government by the
people, for the people. The Pakistani democracy was conceived and
designed in Washington to support the American geo-political
interests in the region. NRO, promulgate by Musharraf on the behest
of the US had one goal: to appoint compradors who would be paid for
by the poor Pakistanis, but truly serve the American interests. The
story of 63 years and seven months continues with all the wrong
people at the top.
This kind of writing -- reminding people about their failures,
criticizing their collective ego with heartless immunity -- would
probably make you great if you were getting your columns published
in Pakistan on a regular basis. This kind of rumination, or
think-piece, is polemical. Moreover, the problems of the Old Country
won't go away any time soon, so what to do?
One way forward is to drown in fiction.
Use your imagination to create stories and resolutions to those
problems of living and loving in the Old Country (or in the New
Country). The world lives on hope, so give people a dose of hope,
not reminders of hopelessness.
My wish for you is to channel your boundless energy and passion into
writing fiction. Don't write from your head; instead, write from the

I was a young man at that time and politically active too. I do not
think that you have your facts right. You have linked different
events with each other and given a feeling of a “bigger” conspiracy,
which is not based on facts. Over a period of long time, Pakistan
Army with Razakaars from Alshams & Albadr (both were franchises of
Jamaat-e-Islami), plundered and killed thousands of people in Dhaka,
Rajshahi, Khulna, Sylhet and many other cities towns and villages
and we behaved like occupiers, we never gave them proportional
representation. This is a Punjaabi feudal thing in connivance with
the Pakistan Army generals. Lot to say, but what is the use. We have
never changed and still are a nation of “bikaoo maal” who has said
“labaik” to all incoming invaders and even provided them shelter

Dear Madam Rubina - I am writing from Karachi, Pakistan. I am an
avid user of the internet and read and write about current affairs.
I received the link to your column about the assassination of Mr.
Salman Taseer and I just don't know how to thank you enough for it.
Although I have read several articles and heard many talk shows
about this tragedy I can safely say that your article and your
analysis is the best. The introduction is absolutely superb and left
me speechless and the long delay in my writing to you has been
deliberate; I wanted each word to sink in and I can assure you it
has had a profound effect on me.
One great advantage you have is that you are sitting so far away and
can, like a historian, look at things more objectively. Nevertheless
you deserve commendation as not all those sitting far away use this
advantage and most of their views are coloured by their own
prejudices which they carry with them and on their sleeves.
I must thank you once again for sending me the link to your article
as I now have a great article to quote in my arguments against the
people who propagate extremism and murder.
Hope to continue receiving mail from you.
God bless you.
Naushad Shafkat .

What a tremendous column, I really appreciate your thoughts, by GOD
your way of thinking has shivered my soul.
I salute you & hope your efforts would change the way of spirit of

Assalam o alaikum w rahmtullah
Special thanks for sending ur new column link. God has blessed u
very beautiful writing stile.I hope that u also in touch with my
MATA E KARWAN has been publish in Daily NAWA E WAQT. Ur fresh column
on TASEER is a true picture of our society unluckily. But there are
something emotionally you mentioned speciously about( molvi ko
siasat sy bahir rhana chaiay) it is discussable details.
Dear Ms. Rubina :
Salam and wish you best for the new year ,,,
Just want to congratulate you for a very well thought out and well
written article about the state of affairs in the home land ,,, I
feel same way and am sure millions more have the same feeling too …
but few, like you, are able to express it so well …
More power to your writing prowess …
This is the best column -- or at least one out of all those that I
have read of you -- that is based on logic, touches the heart and
appeals to the mind. I am taking it onto myself to circulate it
among all those I can reach in one way or the other.
I decided to return home after my kids settled down, wife passed
away and chasing the mighty Dollar ceased to be necessary. Here I
get to meet old friends and relations to share memories of days
gone by, but thats about all. The country that I loved and fondly
remembered when I had to live abroad does not exist anymore.
People here have simply gone mad. I feel that if I want the love
for my motherland to be preserved then I must move away from here.
Its the same case with religion that I was born into and later
chose to stick to.
Salman Taseer was my next-door neighbor of my present abode, my
class mate in the college and a friend. He was no angel but
certainly a better person than these despicable mullahs who write
columns, deliver sermons and masquerade as the pious souls. I fear
that if I live here any longer I will turn into a kafir and
patriotism will evaporate with every breath I take.
This response to your piece is not only an applause but also to
vent the frustration that I feel within. I apologize for taking
your valuable time.
Your write-up is very touching and daring too; it is
very close to factual and real analysis of the situation .I do
forward to my friends and they appreciate too. Thanks for keeping me
posted. God bless you.
Thanks. It is tragic and particularly so for his
family that Mr. Taseer was killed by his own bodyguard. The fact
that so many of us have joined in and devoted so much time to mourn
his loss for so many days is indeed laudable. The media in
particular have spent countless hours on discussions and published
God knows how many articles on his passing away which is also very
touching and commendable. Apart from anything else, it implies that
we are kind, compassionate, caring and thoughtful people ---- but is
that really so?
The tragic episode also brings to light another aspect of our
society that is deeply troubling. While Mr. Taseer was just one man,
thousands of equally innocent men, women and children have been
blown to smithereens in the drone attacks by Pakistan’s alleged
friends and 'strategic partners' and countless others injured and
maimed for life. They do so with impunity and without any warning.
For them it is like playing video games with the lives of people who
are our own and they haven't stopped. The wanton, merciless and
inhuman killing that is a crime against humanity under international
law goes on unchallenged, unhindered and without much comment.
We have to ask why is it that the death of one man touches us so
profoundly while we turn a blind eye to the killing of thousands of
other Pakistanis, regardless of age, sex or culpability, by a
foreign power? Their lives surely are just as precious to their
families and their loss certainly has a far greater impact on those
they leave behind. Do we consider these people as not our own or the
children of a lesser god, to borrow from Arundhati Roy, and hence
not worthy of our sympathy and compassion? Or is it that like the
government and the armed forces we too believe foreign powers have
the right and license to kill Pakistanis where and when they like?
Why are we not as outraged in their cases as with Mr. Taseer and why
have we not been demanding and protesting for their protection?
The callous disregard and sheer insensitivity is a national shame
that will never be washed away from our collective conscience and
history will condemn us for it in no uncertain way. It is not simply
Mr. Taseer's killer; we are all sick and full of pretence and
hypocrisy. It is time all of us re-examined our attitudes with a
modicum of honesty and started to fear for what Allah Subhana Ta'ala
might make of our pretensions and lack of humanity.
Regards. K. Hussan Zia.
Behan Rubina Faisal

further want to say
قرآن مجید میں ھے لیل کنواں ھے ان لوگوں کے لئے جو ناپ تول میں کمی
کرتے ہیں - مولانا احتشام الحق تھانوی اس کا تبصرہ کرتے ھوئے کہتے ہین
کہ لیل ایک کنوئیں کا نام ھے جس میں آگ کے شعلے بھڑک رہے ہیں اور اس
میں طرح طرح کی دیگر آفتیں ھیں -مولانا احتشام الحق تھانوی مزید کہتے
ہیں کہ جب محلے والا دکاندار اپنے ترازو مین گڑ بڑ کرکے آپ کو معمولی
مقدار مین چینی یا کوئی اور چیز میں کمی کرکے دیتا ھے تو اسکے لئے اتنی
بڑی سزا کیوں ھے - جبکہ اتنی ہی مقدار میں کوئی چینی یا کوئی اور چیز
چوری کر لے تو اسکی اتنی بری سزا نہیں ھے - وہ تشریح کرتے ہوئے کہتے
ہیں کہ سزا دراصل اس اعتماد کو توڑنے کی ہے جو اس دکاندار نے آپ کے اس
ترازو پر کیا تھا کہ یہ صحیح حالت میں ھے -- چنانچہ سلیمان تاثیر کے
کیس میں ہم نے اس آدمی ممتاز قادری پر اعتماد کیا اور اسے بندوق پکڑا
دی تھی لیکن ممتاز قادری نے اعتماد کو ٹھیس پہنچائی -اسے اگر یہ واقع
کر نا ھی تھا تو اس وقت کرتا جب وردی میں نہیں ھوتا - دو ہزار پہلے
چندر گپت موریہ کے دور میں ایک کتاب لکھی گئی تھی جس کانام ارتھ شاستر
تھا -اس مین بھی تقریبا" یہی بات لکھی تھی کہ پولیس والا اگر کسی بیان
میں دروغ گوئی سے کام لے تو اسے دگنی سزا ملے گی بنسبت اس عام فرد کے
جو یہی جھوٹ بولے- وجہ یہی ہے کہ حکومت وقت نے اس پولیس والے پر
اّعتماد کیا لیکن اس نے جھوت بول کر اس اعتماد کو توڑ دیا

Dear Rubina Beti,
Thank your for your wonderful article. I understand that your
writings have a vast reader in the West but, as I guess, may be
lesser in Pakistan, where we have dearth of right thinking people.
If already your articles are published in Pakistani Urdu dailies or
magazines it is very good. If not, please send them to Pakistan also
my dear rubeena .

Mohtarma Dear Robina,
Assalamo Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh
Well done. Jazakomullah. You took the courage on the Shahdat of
Sulman Taseer and for your comment of Shuhda-a-Ahmadiyyat. After the
demise of Sulman Taseer Marhoom, I checked condolences messages on
YouTubes, at was to my utmost surprize that their were very few.
Most politician are very covered(buz-dill).
Namak-Haram cannot be Mohibb-a-Rasool nor Aashq-a-Rasool. No one
should be permitted to take law in his own Hand and become god to
punish others. Much can be written on this topic, may be next time.

I read ur article. V.nice and impressive. This is really that most
of the country-people had become blind. They do not love prophet
Muhammad pbuh if they did then they should spend their whole days
and nights according to hazoors teachings. But they can't because
they don't like such things, simple !
So ignorant .... so selfish, so bad .....

Rubina sahiba, the
story of the mullah and his affair that you have included in your
column, I think, represents the religious state of affairs and a
confused disposition that most every one is displaying in Pakistan.
The narrow minded,
semi-literate, hadith thumping mullahs are rampant. Many
issues and questions which can easily be decided upon with the help
of clear guidance provided in the Quran are being confused by using
the man made fairy stories taken from the sea of the ahadith
where every reader can pick up the story that supports their own
allegedly, showered the religious terrorist, Qadri with rose petals.
What can you expect from the courts and their judges where a
murderer is called a Ghazi who takes the law in his own hand and
becomes the judge, the jury and executioner all in one.
Pakistan is not behind in the
areas of science and technology, but it is also behind in the area
of its own religion. There have been huge rallies in support of
freeing the Ghazi, a common murderer and a terrorist.
The government is
hopelessly ineffective to control the situation and take an
initiative in reviewing and revising the blasphemy law and ensuring
an equal security and justice to all, including the minority.
AoA. Your latest column, as usual, is very thought-provoking and
certainly pinpoints the problem menacing our nation. The problem
simply stated is that everyone thinks they can and must implement
their own agenda in their own way -- let law be damned.
The unfortunate fact is that this culture of lawlessness which has
nothing but contempt for the law is actively pursued and practiced
by our so called political elites -- Salman Taseer being a prominent
member of that abnoxious class. Also, by ignoring the rule of law,
this class has amply convinced the general public that they are
above the law and hence taking a legal route against them is an
exercise in futitilty. So, if someone believes that a certain person
of influence has done something wrong, he can forget going to the
court to get redress. We have seen how during the last two years the
courts have been thumbed down by the corrupt and the criminals and
all efforts to bring them to justice have been doomed.
Little surprise then that this man (the assasin) did what he did.
Perhaps, if law worked in Pakistan, someone, if he felt that Salman
Taseer had done an outrageous thing, may have thought that rather
than shooting the man, it is easier to go to the court and prove his
point. Only if.
Another thing I find distasteful in the current hype about this
unfortunate killing and abuse of the so called Blasphemy law is :
why so much noise now? Only because a member of an elite ruling
class has been murdered? Becuase surely lot of other people have
died before, equally unjustly and equally for the same reason --
blasphemy, real rarely but mostly perceived or imagined. Not only
just non-Muslims (for they are considred fair game) but Muslims as
well. Nobody raised such a storm then as I see now on the national
Any way, after reading your articles, I always have a feeling of

community with a good heart in combination with a good head too,
which can think clearly. My very best complements to you, with

Dear Ms Rubina,
I have read your columns and poetry. Everything is very
impressive.Your way of writing is persuasive and I belive that it
must leave long lasting impact on way of thinking and understanding
of other people. This actually the leadership, I mean playing your
role to bring the positive change or to develop the nation.
Just read your column "Pakistani Awaam Ka Apnay Siasatdaano ko
Kharaj-e-Tehsin". In this column you have figured out some
common habits of our nation in a very impressive way. We, as a
nation, always blame others for the bad things happening to us. I
mean we always blame that Government is responsible for all the
miseries and at the same time we make all necessary arrangement for
the victory of that polition which was previously fired by the

started reading your book. You have fire which is basic ingredient.
You have love for humanity. You have deep sense of belonging to your
homeland. Fortunately you are in a country which has achieved a
level in better life for humans. Please learn research more then
think what should be transferred to Pakistan. You have a very long
innings to play don't be impatient. I have all faith in your
generation. You would certainly achieve what we could not.

Congratulations on the overwhelming response of your readers. For
you, it could be a bit unexpected to see such a big crowd, but for
me it was not. I am sure you must have jotted down the advices that
the honorable guest-speakers passed you on with utter sincerity.
Munir Sami's analytical discourse was simply amazing and very
enlightening. I would love to read it on
FOTH site whenever it is
available. Ahtisham Sahib's impromptu speech was very impressive.
His command on the selection of words and fluency was definitely as
brilliant as Dr. Narang's. Listening to Ahtisham Sahib was a
pleasant experience. I am really very sorry for forgetting to buy
the book and have it sign by you. Please sign a book and whenever we
meet, I would love to take it from you.
How are you Rubina? Today, I saw again your website and your
writings esp. those who have tried to praise your "critique" of the
situations and reasons why people are doing whatever they are doing
in Pakistan. I saw mostly praising your wallowing about Pakistan and
could not see the honest critical review of your writings. So, I
thought to add mine.
Sometimes we do get carried away by too much praise and forget
ourselves and our purpose. I'm going to say nothing new to you which
I did not say to you earlier. However, this time, I'd request you to
pls. gather enough courage to make these words of mine as "part" of
your website. Despite my repetitive requests, you have not stopped
seeing doom and gloom in everything about Islam and Pakistan. Yes, a
positive critique is necessary but not mentioning anything positive
about even the worst evil found in Islam or Pakistan/Pakistanis is
injustice. You have got a vision, power to write and express. All
I'm requesting is to start looking and recognizing the positivity,
love, caring and the "unique" Pakistaniyat in every individual from
that land where you and your fore-fathers belong to. Try to think
like a nurse who does not get freaked out by seeing blood. Rather
she goes ahead, cleans the wounds and encourages the wounded ones to
keep hopes of life alive.
I know you can and am looking forward to seeing that lovely part of
you signing praise and enjoying that beautiful "you" within Islam
and Pakistan. Wish I could write more, but Iqbal already said it all
in his "Shikwah and Jawab Shikwah" :)

write better than you on this topic. I really appreciate the words
you have used for our high level politician .In fact they have born
with the golden spoon to loot and enjoy the national income without
contributing a penny out of their Swiss accounts. Bangla Desh is
better than us . We can see their products in Wall Mart , Old Navy &

are distributing the national fund to their party leaders in shape
of development funds (which is a political bribe ) to maintain the
support for illegal activities and shifting the national income to

I've been away from the European scene for more than 4 years, and
have no idea about the recent activities of Urdu-wallas. Your column
on the Barcelona poetry reading was not less than an eye-opener for
me. What I had seen in my 20 years of stay in Europe, was quite the
opposite: an Urdu poet would not stand another Urdu poet, period .
I'm not sure how long ago this miraculous Mushaera took place
because you haven't given any dates, but if it's a recent happening,
then I must congratulate the organizers of this event and request
them to arrange for more events like that.

Two years ago, I visited Seville, the original capital of Muslim
Spain. The great mosque there was converted into the grandest
cathedral in the world. Among other things, it has the tomb of
Christopher Columbus. The Muslims lost Seville and then made Grenada
their new capital.
In a coincidence of history, just when Christian Spain conquered
Cordoba and Grenada, Sultan Mohammad Fatih conquered Constantinople.
The big church there was converted into a mosque. In yet another
twist of history, the Turkish Republic turned Aya Sofia into a
secular historic monument.
History is like a river, it changes course and there is not much you
can do about it.
The number of Muslims in Europe and North America is growing
steadily and that is like history changing course again.

Silent Calls for Prayer from the Church Steeples
(Klisaoun ke darmian Khamosh Azanain) is a nicely written
essay reminding us of the early Muslim history in Europe. We
can reminisce the Islamic golden era of Al-Andalus for its
nostalgic and historic values. When it comes to the study of
history, there are always lessons to be learned or else we
are condemned to relive it. While the history of Moguls in
India is still so fresh in our minds, obviously we have
failed to learn any lessons. Today, as you have pointed out,
the people of Pakistan are re-living the economic, cultural
and political circumstance which was created in India during
17th to 19th century as a precursor to
the British occupation of the whole subcontinent of India.
Alas, some nations refuse to learn lessons from history –
and we are it.
the Muslim nations today are suffering in the hands of
unscrupulous and deceitful, self appointed leaders. In
reality, they are not leaders, they are compradors who serve
foreign powers for personal, short term gains and end up
creating foreign supremacy over their nations for centuries
to come. The 18th century Indian history is
repeating itself in today’s Pakistan. We can see the living
examples of this in Pakistan, Afghanistan and the oil
Sheikhdoms of the Middle East.
not have been surprising that Pope Benedict had refused to
allow Muslim prayers to be held in the Cordoba Mosque, which
is now a Catholic Cathedral. Times change and so do the
social and cultural conditions. After all, the Cordoba
Mosque was built around an old Christian Church. Today, the
Muslims are not short of mosques or land to build new ones.
They should be mindful of what they have to ensure they
retain what they own today rather than cry for what they had
lost centuries ago. As far as holding the prayers is
concerned, God is omnipresent and ubiquitous, one can pray
to him every where or any where. Before we complain about
the Pope in connection with our claims on the Granada
Mosque, we should review the behavior of our own people in
Pakistan where the mosques and churches are being blown up
with bombs along with the worshipers.
Although I always admired the beautiful architecture and interior
designs of the Mosque of Cordova, I don't think Muslims had any
right to occupy Spain and colonize it for centuries. The Umayyad
colonizers did not do so for the sake of Islam, but it was just an
empire building process, very similar to what the British, French,
Spanish and Dutch and others did in Asia, Africa and Americas and
Australia. Let's not glorify Muslim occupation of Spain. It has
NOTHING to do with the teachings of the Holy Quran. Let Cordova and
the mosque remain Spanish property.
Have a wonderful day.

assalam o alaikum
hope you are fine.
Actually this column of yours is written in great haste and in a
time you were extremely emotional. I dont know whom you are
addressing. You are just airing your anger on all sides. Yes. Me
too, among scores of other muslims round the globe, do pray, do pay
zakat and alms, and the like, but I don't think I am burdening
someone with the load of these things as you have given a picture of
yours. Molvis have done a lot bad, and they are done it in the name
of Islam. This is so because they have only Islam with them to sell
out. Rest are selling their commodities. Islam is ever and best sold
by the molvis. But these molvis have never been so powerful unless
the dogs which we have been keeping for our safety would'nt bend to
serve their cause. This is the real curse. Maybe you find enough
courage to jot the real and complete picture. You are excused since
you cannot!! Aap hi kiya, mard e momin k bhi to bachay hotey hen,

population of 180 million.
Because, In a situation, where hundreds of millions of Humans are

If you carefully read what I write, you will remember, that I had
earlier sent you the definition of "Leadership" ...
But I will repeat it once again:
"In the Islamic Concept, Leadership Means an Accountable
of the Ruler ... not the bullet proof cars, public adoration and
presidential palaces ... etc. etc.
That, Leaders are born ... not made, at the Harvard, or MIT like
Schools, ... or at our Colleges and Universities.
What these Schools and Universities Produce, are essentially Brand
Thus, a National Leader, cannot, and should not, be equated with, a
Commercial "Brand" Manager.
Its like Mirasis, and the Hera Mandi walay, or the Lohaars or the
Chamaars and the Arains, being Branded,
as the only Castes, as ones, having, the Required Qualities of
Leadership ... For this is how, they are prone to Act,
think and Believe. Because, Nothing else Exists, outside, their
Why ? Because, the Political Form of Leadership, and Governance, is
an Art Form, and it takes at least 5 Generations, in Power, to
Perfect the Art ... and these Mirasis, and their Generated, do not
have the Art ... But is it not foolish to equate, Singing, Tabla and
Sarangi Nawazi, with Governance ... or Managing the Public Affairs,
in Real Life ?
Have you noted the Symphony Orchestra like Arrangement, in our
Political statements ... Be it the Brass, or the Percussion, or the
Strings and Flutes ... all ... Basically Following, differently, a
Performed Work, of a Composer ?
Whats wrong, in Pakistan, is, that sumandar paar kay Shylocks, and
Cowboys, over the past two hundred years, have, been successful
[with Free Masonry and Money] to Place, these so called, Excellent
... Grand Masters, and Covert Chamchas ... the Khan Bahadurized,
Mirasis and Arains etc. at the helm of of our Political Power, and
later, Calling them, your Excellencies !
Why ? Because, these Mirasis etc., and/or their First or Second or
third or fourth Generations, lack the Required Mettle of Character,
thus, they are easy to Manipulate ... towards the Sumandar Par
Walay's Objectives, than ... the Right Mettled ones, who always
refuse to sell their Zameer: conscience, or, the Watan .
But let me tell you ... I have nothing against the Mirasis etc., as
human beings ... What I abhor, is their, first or Second or third
Generation's, "Importing, and then Mandating, their, inferior
Culture, which is unfit for the Institution, of National
Regarding the Second Letter, referring to "Roshni ki Jhalak ...
Imran Khan ... And why, it is not Reflected in his Team ...
I have to say, "That what, the gentleman from Lala Musa sees, in the
Person of Imran Khan, has more to do with what he wants to Believe,
Imran is good, as far as Cricket, and the Philanthropic Orientation
of his Cause, is concerned... That he should not have gone beyond
these two, as the Purpose of his life ... There are infinite
possibilities in them both, and he should have devoted his energies
to Cricket and Shaukat Khanum Hospital ... instead of Translating
the Turkish Justice Party's Manifesto, into a Movement, he is not
qualified to lead.
But in countries, with a leadership, like the present one in
Pakistan, composed of Mirasis etc., one is easily distracted by
Personal ambition ...
Try to Remember, " روشنی ... Emanates From Truth ... not the Chehras
of Cricketers, or NGOized Philanthropists, or the Khan Bahadur
Progeny, or the Playboys and the Julahas, Lohaars, and Mochis, etc.
turned Milllionaires and Billionaires by Robbing the People and the
Corrupt state. The hedonist Sardars, Jagirdars, the Bank frauds,
Corrupt Bureaucrats, Judges, Mullahs, and Bandits are also a part of
this long list ... Misfits ... but Placed, Rulers " ...
Thus, "Companions of Pakistani Leaders, are the True Reflection, of
their Real Person ... What we see, of them, in the Media, or in
their real life faces, is an optical Illusion; created by makeup,
and at times, by our hopeless Delusions.
It is for these Reasons, that, a Political Change in Pakistan, means
a Change, of names and Faces, they all Speak one Jargon ... They
neither have the Capacity, the Ability or the Intent, to Change the
Reality of the Pakistani's Pathetic Condition, in Pakistan...
Do you Understand ?
Regarding the Pakistani, writing from Saudi Arabia, that " people of
Pakistan, cannot seem to be unable to Unite at a Point" ...
The Fact of the situation, is quite different, than what appears ...
For it is so, because of the Placers Hired, Local Proxies ... well
fed, well placed, and secured ... whose job is to see to it, that
People of Pakistan do not rally and Unite under one Flag ...
And ................................. about the famous, the youngest
Billionaire, the Programmer of face book, I have to say, that first,
he used his head, made the Software, by Applying, his Idea ... Thus,
came up with a web site, which could Serve the New World Disorder
Plan, thus, was Allowed, [like his Fellow Programmers] as Owners, of
Media and the Internet Sites ... by his Establishment...
Tell the boy, "Do not to run away from Pakistan" ... come back home,
do whatever little you can do, face the World's Oppositions, and
singlehandedly build Pakistan's Place on the Internet, do so, for
your Future Generations. That this is what, we are supposed to ...

Although I have a much smaller intellect to cook up any solution to
our national tragedy, but I do have a small incident to share. It
happened in 2002, in Lahore. I was driving my car home, when a man
came from wrong side, and almost hit me. I pushed hard brakes. He,
while speeding his car off, angrily looked and passed on some curse.
Only one thought hit my mind at that moment, "This man deserve a
Trespasser like Musharraf to be his representative". And then I
realized that majority of us carried this attitude of trespassing,
exploiting whatever is within our power etc. We deserved Musharraf,
as much as we deserve Zardari today.
Yousuf Sahib, as you talked of "red revolution", I wish that you
would have been alive in times of Karl Marx, so that you could have
told him to stop writing Das Kapital in first place.
I think that understanding a problem is a step towards its solution.
So by writing and thus raising awareness about understanding our
problem, we can move closer to solution. But in the end, it is not
the scholars, but each and every person who's living in Pakistan,
holds the key to solution. Let's stop "deserving" Zardari and these
rogue leaders first. Wo "Sala" sahih wala leader khud hi samnay aa
jaiy ga :)

What a unique way to promote and endorse Imran Khan; your article "Magar
Sala Gia Kahan" claims to have four questions for your readers, but
in fact these questions are the true answers... I don't know why we
have been searching for the monarch (Leader) to show us the path to
prosperity... we need to learn from the history that Pakistan has
suffered more damage from our leader than the ordinary people.
YES, we have enormous problems in Pakistan, but "are we looking for
the solutions from the right places?" the answer is NO.
The time is coming soon, when I will be sharing a "Peaceful
Contingency Plan" (PCP) to not only the people of Pakistan, but to
all our long lost global cousins, just pray for the global peace.
Where the Imran Khan is concerned, I have contested a National
Assembly election in 1997 with his partnership because I used to
believe in him as the Messiah of our troubles like many of us are
beginning to see in him.. Imran is an honest, sincere, and dedicated
human being, but his leadership can not cure the social ills of our
society.. the answer is somewhere else, just wait....
All the three letter that you have published tell us the most
horrific situation that has engulfed Pakistan.
I have had interaction with lottttttttttts of educated young
Pakistanis who are the most frustrated lot . That means that our
future leaders are also in a state of complete dismay.
Is there a way out ? Yes. First of all, we , the older generation
needs to make frank and candid confessions . The Pakistan that our
leaders got was not prosperous but it had honest and dedicated
leaders and bureaucrats who shephered the country through its
turbulent years. But gradually the country was high- jacked by "
waderas" with feudal mind-sets. The feudal-mind set is not only
among the landed aristocracy but all over-- bureaucrats , army
people,. industrialists etc. all have feudal mind sets. Our national
assembly constituencies are too big . Only " crore-paties" can run
for elections who spend huge sums and then get into total corruption
from day one to recoup what they have spent.
The ruling elites' popularity has come down to less than 20 % and
yet they continue to rule for their own self interest. Right now,
personal interest is number one , family interests number two, clan
interest number three, provincial interest number four ; the
National Interest is the meagre residual element . Unless we reverse
this order of priorities ; we will continue to race towards the
bottom of the pit.
Who will do that ? Only the youth of the country because they are
the KEY stake holders. They need to take their future in their own
hands -- strive to change the corruption-ridden system ; insist that
the political parties have elections in the parties themselves ;
those who do not have intra-party elections , they should not be
allowed to run for elections /.
In due course of time the genuine leadership ; responsive and
responsible ; will emerge . It is a long , tough road but there are
no short cuts or quick-fixes.
The national reform agenda should continue to be discussed and
discussed vigorously . Solutions will surface only and only if face
up to the challenges and search for solutions that are home grown
and NOT " donor-driven". United we have a chance to survive; devided
we will go down.
Thanks for your efforts to share the feelings of the people who have
been marginalised in the present self-erving system of the elites
for the elites.
With profound regards,
Fateh M . Chaudhri
|Dear Ms. Rubina Faisal,
The anxiety of the youth in Pakistan mirrored in your column is
quite natural. We are the victim of religious extremism, terrorism,
sectarianism, feudalism, militarism, fascism, emotionalism,
illiteracy, poverty, over population,bureaucracy, corruption,
bribery, banditry and brigandage. How such an over burdened nation
can survive? Should we wait for miracles to happen? Are we waiting
for some Messiah? Mr. Bhutto was a visionary and popular leader and
became the victim of the conspiracy of the imperialists. Pakistan
has seen four martial laws. We are an unfortunate nation. Ms.
Benazir was an other intellectual and visionary leader. She also got
killed. Mian Nawaz Sharif had popular mandate but was deposed and
expelled. These civilian leaders mentioned here might not have been
ideal for all. Every body has his own choice and vision so far as
leadership is concerned. But they were the best out of the available
lot. Presently we need civilian leadership. Let the democratic
process continue. It must not halt. If one government goes, let the
other come but by democratic process. No military rule should be
accepted. The only panacea of our social evils lies in education,
social justice, moderation, rationalism and democracy. We should
hope for better future but it needs strenuous struggle. We need
capable , honest and patriotic leadership from middle class.
Besides, last night I was at the residence of Mr. Jafar Naqvi in New
Jersey in a poetry session. I also recited my fresh Urdu poetry. Mr.
Ashfaq Hussain had come from Canada and Mr. Safdar Hamadani from
London. We had a good evening. I am coming to Canada on May 28, 2010
to read out my essay on the book of Syed Athar Razvi. Hope to see
With warm wishes,

Situation is gone from BAD to WORST in Pakistan. We have identity
crises. (We mean Pakistani) It is in my experience that some of our
young people born and raised in the USA or UK etc. are reluctant to
call themselves Pakistani.
Nothing good is coming out of our country. From the President down
to a peon in common office is corrupt, dishonest and immoral .
We were pushing for democracy. Look what we got? Love Irshad
|I have gone through your latest article, “Face book ka asal
face”. It’s really alarming, motivated and informative one. By the
way I have gone though your couple of other columns too, e.g. “Imran
Khan ko mulak badr karma chahye” and “Ab tau tu bik b nahee sakti”,,,
What a beautiful style and impressions they do possess. Please keep
up the good work. I wish you good luck and every success in your

|-your article "facebook ka asali face " has caught my heart
when u were telling that those people who were victim of loneliness
or those people who were not being heard, i was thinking that u are
talking about me
Indeed now people have got a source of outlet for telling their
inner passions. It ( i must include other internet magazines/forums
too) has helped to reduce tension (including of mine too) which was
cooking in the minds.
This is right that i can write easily in print media of Pakistan
easily but despite that i feel a sort of no security while
expressing myself. In other internet forums i express easily my
Merely same comments have been written by me in ur face book

well and excellent article written by u.....
God bless u more and more
Your article on Facebook is excellent.. and true to dot. Too much
openness and total lack of privacy is causing a lot of problems on
it. Like every tool.. FB has its pros and cons.. but unfortunately
as is the nature of human beings, we usually find the worse way to
use a tool.

read your column, Facebook, I note that you are wishing
to see large business offices in Lahore and Islamabad.
Have you ever thought who is going to provide security
against the TTP terrorists? Supposing you have secured
the premises, how much useful work can be done in those
offices with daily 18 hour power shut down?
country has no role models of any kind. The younger
generation can hardly get any inspiration from the
clowns in the parliament. Many of them are sitting there
with fake degrees and some of them don’t even know the
Table of 2. They call themselves the political leaders.
They are political all right but certainly not leaders
of any description.
countries get destroyed in a war, some by natural
disasters, but Pakistan has been bombed by NRO. The NRO
stench is so bad that people can hardly breathe fresh
air. In that stifling atmosphere, sitting in dark,
sweating like hogs because of no electricity, they can
hardly think straight, let alone come up with
revolutionary, technological or scientific ideas.
only people who have electricity without interruption
and three square meals a day are the thieves and thugs
sitting in the upper echelons. They have no brains and
certainly no time to think about the national
advancement or development. They are too busy in
manipulating their own version of democracy as much as
possible and obsessed with its
which they never fail to remind us about as part of
their own need for reassurance.
