Pakistan Independence Day

When it comes to Pakistan, every finger is rising up to humiliate this country. This is no hidden truth. Aside from this fact, almost every superpower wants to get hold of it. This country is blessed by so many natural resources that aren’t being utilized to its full.
Yes, India has a history. India has ancient stories. Don’t forget, Pakistan shares that history and stories as well.

Let’s talk about Lahore, the city with full of thrills. If you want to eat something even after midnight, you’ll find your way more easily than any other city. Couple of Parks, greenery, and a great atmosphere has turned this city unique. Talking about ancient Lahore, there are still buildings built in Kings’ era. They are valued, visited and praised every day.
However, the increasing pollution and traffic in this 2nd largest city of Pakistan is an emerging problem. Local government is taking steps to make it better and the situation is quite better than it was a few years ago.

Islamabad! Yes.. The city’s beauty is not hidden from the rest of the world as it has been announced in the list of “One of the most beautiful Capitals in the world”. Islamabad is Pakistan’s first planned city. Surrounded by mountains, the weather stays normal in summer and it gets freezy in the winter. When you are in Islamabad, you cannot say “It’s really hot in here”. If you do, you should visit Sibbi.
However, the city is quite expensive as compared to other cities of Pakistan. But if you have got some cash in your pockets, no one is stopping you.

There are other cities having immense importance as well. If you want to see the nature, you must visit Naran Kaghan Valley, Fairy Meadows, Nanga Parbat, Khunjrab and many more areas nearby. I bet you will be fascinated after what you’ll see there.

Malik Riaz Supporting IDPs


Malik Riaz, a well-known real estate investor has taken a great step to support IDPs. After Operation Zarb e Azb, there is a lot of displacement from operated areas to KPK. Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf already decided to help IDPs. According to the latest report, Pakistan Army has escorted about 400,000 IDPs to safety.

Malik Riaz, owner of one of the famous Housing scheme Bahria Town, had some controversial scandals in the past. Recently , he has announced that he is willing to these internally displaced persons by himself. For the sake of IDPs, Malik Riaz has invested about 50 crores to support IDPs.

In addition to this, Malik Riaz has also issued a statement that he will provide education and health support to all those IDPs.
He has also requested to take all the responsibility for IDPs campsImage

Apart from Malik Riaz generous donation, It’s also being said that all members of Parliament has donated their one month salary to IDPs. Still, they have lost their houses, they have been displaced. It can be felt only when you have to leave your own house and you are depending on others donations. We need to donate.

Help IDPs. Help Pakistan.

Islam , Pakistan and us


We are shattered. We are divided. We are not what we should be. Why am I saying this? Look at Pakistan. Look at all the people around us. We are just fighting, condemning, criticizing and blaming every other person we meet. We’ve unknowingly set the levels of criticism.
Didn’t get me?

Well, this country is continuously facing an internal war – A war between sects, provinces and castes. This nation cannot be united. Come again? Yes! I am right. How can this nation be united? First, we are proud of our provinces and cities we live in. We try to grade our province best. What is there in other provinces? They are, too, in Pakistan.  Let me give just one example.

Sindh, being divided into Mahajir and Pathan. There had been a lot of killings due to this provincial dispute for many years . Not caring about living as a nation, people try to live as a pro – killer.

And then, there are religious disputes, one of them mostly known as sunni-shia dispute. Many people got sacrificed in the name of religion. This is not what our religion has taught us. Yes! This is not our teachings. Islam didn’t preach about spreading hatred even with non-Muslims. If this was the case, Hazrat Abu Bakar Siddique (R.A) was a non-Muslim. Infact, every Sahaba was a non-Muslim before they embraced Islam. Hazrat Muhammad(S.A.W.W) didn’t kill any of them. He (S.A.W.W) never intended to. Instead, he spread peace all over the world.
What are we even trying to prove? Whose teachings are we following?

Maybe, it’s time to open up our minds and look at everything in a broader perspective. Everyone has a right to live. Everyone can live the way he/she wants to be. Do not enforce your wills on anyone. You will be questioned about brutality, too. Image

Then, there comes caste-disputes. We feel proud of our caste. We’ll be bragging how managed , well behaved and brave people from our caste is. Behind every caste, there’s a human. Behind every human, there are mistakes. ALLAH didn’t discriminate anyone in Quran on the basis of the caste . Castes are used as our recognition and not as a source of proudness. If a man (let’s suppose he’s Rajpoot) drinks beer, it doesn’t mean that the all people in that caste have started drinking. There will be many in Pathans and other castes who do the same act. What one does is one’s own will. Castes have nothing to do with it.

In the end, let me ask you one question. You’re being asked to unite when many other forces are trying to split you up. How will you unite? Can you unite for betterment of your country? Can you leave all your disputes and proud behind? Can you compromise your negativity for prosperity of this nation?

CAN YOU BE UNITED?
