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?

Pakistan: Other than Terrorism


Pakistan, today is known as the country involved in Terrorism. Today, we are lost so much in this that we don’t see what other stuff this country has for the rest of the world.

Terrorism was at its peak few years back but after some military operations, it is limited to some areas in Pakistan. These areas are still dangerous for the foreigners and they must not visit these places.

Let me tell you some other places that you’d like to visit in Pakistan.

Lahore, the capital city of Punjab, is one of the most beautiful places in Pakistan. It totally represents Pakistani culture and there are some great buildings that are worth-seeing.

Badshahi Mosque, built hundred of years ago, is still there and you really want to visit it. In it, there are many things  that relates to the old Royal customs. Those are still present there and saved for the visitors to see. The internal structure is very much well designed. You’ll enjoy your visit.

And for sure, you need a hotel to stay in and visit places. Well, there are all kinds of hotels in Lahore. If you love luxury, Pearl Continental and Awari Hotel are there to fulfill your need. And if you are looking for an International Chain, you are most welcomed to Holiday Inn.

Mall Road is another beautiful place. And the list goes on.

You can visit Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan. With beautiful views, this city should be in a must-visit list for all the visitors. Places like Faisal Mosque and Margalla Hills are very beautiful and you’ll enjoy your visit.

And the locations like these totally makes you feel wonderful and fresh. Whatever advancements we make, we can’t deny the fact that Nature is the best and will always be.

As the scenes are concerned, I told you some of the best places here in Pakistan. But, these are not all. You will surely enjoy your visit to Pakistan. Once you get here, there is a lot more to see.

Pakistan is also very good at exporting many things. I will discuss that some other time. Let us know if you liked this post.

I am a Pakistani: Please Don’t hate me


Once, there was a child. He was just 7 years old. He didn’t know the harshness of world. He went to school daily, came back home. His parents were glad to see him back. Parents loved him, played with him and that was how the days were passing.

And one day, there was a blast in the city. It was about 7:00 a.m. in the morning. The boy was getting ready to go to school. His father left the home as he was asked to reach early to his office that day. The boy and her mom was watching the TV. They were watching that news channel. The news was -“A blast occurred near McDonald’s Lahore. 120 people died and 50 are injured.”

It was chaos everywhere as they continued watching TV. Child’s mom was worried as her husband was 2 streets away from McDonald’s. She called him. His phone was turned-off. She was so tensed. She called the police but Police was busy in investigating so no one listened to her. No one helped her. She cried and the time passed.

In the evening of that day, she received a call. The caller informed her that her husband has died in the blast. She was shocked. She fainted. Her son didn’t know what to do. He called his neighbors. They came and they sprinkled water over her face. She woke up and she remembered all that let her go faint. She told everyone that her husband died.

That family is living like this since than.

I’m going to ask to you: We started a war against terrorism. Why people who are not concerned with any of this are being treated like this. First, that child lost his father and when he will grow up, he will see other people pointing at him and labeling him as “Terrorist”. What has he done to anyone? What was his fault?

Please Don’t Hate Me!

I have a request to all of you. There might be people in Pakistan who are terrorists but there is a majority of people who are innocent and don’t have anything to do with all this terrorism. They are ordinary people, living their ordinary life. They also deserve some love and non-hated support from all of you. Let these people know the meaning of a “Peaceful Life”. Don’t hate Pakistanis because most of them are innocents.
