Pakistan Army once saved Khana Kaba, the holiest place in the holy city Makkah, in 1979 when a group of militants led by Juhaiman ibn Muhammad ibn Saif al Utaibi seized Khana Kaba for two weeks. The militants attacked the holiest place at the time of Fajr Prayer on 20th November, 1979 and several pilgrims were taken hostages.

It was shocking news for Islamic world when the Grand Mosque Khana Kaba was seized by the militants and during that process several guards lost their lives in cross firing. It was the second time when bloodshed occurred on the holy ground of Grand Mosque and pilgrims were taken hostages on Hajj.

Abdullah Hamid Mohammed Al-Qahtani was the leader of militants and he was the one who called the Muslims to obey him as redeemer of Islam. Juhaiman ibn Muhammad ibn Saif al Utaibi, who led the seizure of Holy Kaba, declared his brother-in-law as redeemer of Islam and turned against ruling Al-Saud dynasty.

The Saudi government tried to regain Grand Mosque but couldn’t get success for two weeks and lost several troops in the operation as well. The militants group deployed sharp shooters and snipers at key places of Grand Mosque to stop any kind of assault from Saudi troops. The lives of thousands of pilgrims were at risk as well.

For two weeks none of the attempts to rescue the people got success which created chaos among Muslims of the world. The president of Pakistan General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq asked Saudis to let Pakistan Army do the operation as the whole world were eying on them as well. Saudis allowed him to regain the Grand Mosque.

After getting permission General Zia-ul-Haq chose few very competent SSG Commandos from Pakistan Army and sent them to Saudi Arabia. The commander of SSG commandos made a very brilliant strategy against the militants which worked really well for them. SSG commanders were deployed on the ground of Grand Mosque from helicopters and pushed the snipers and militants towards basement.

Once all the militants were pushed into basement of Grand Mosque, the commander of SSG commandos asked the Saudis to flood the basement. Once the basement was flooded, they electrocuted the water which made militants unconscious and all of them including the leaders were arrested by the commandos of Pakistan Army and finished the siege of Khana Kaba.

 

SSG Commandos of Pakistan Army Saving Khana Kaba

Pakistan Army Clears Khana Kaba from Militants

SSG commandos of Pakistan Army cleared Khana Kaba and rescued thousands of hostages at in 1979 when a group of militants led by Juhaiman ibn Muhammad ibn Saif al Utaibi seized the Grand Mosque. It all happened so quickly on the morning of 20th Novermber, 1979 that the security guards couldn’t do much to protect the place.

Once Khana Kaba, the holiest place of Muslims, was seized by the militants and thousands of pilgrims were made hostages, the militants declared Abdullah Hamid Mohammed Al-Qahtani the redeemer of Islam. They asked Muslims to obey him as Mahdi, the redeemer of Islam and during the assault executed innocent pilgrims.

The armed troops of Saudis tried to regain the Grand Mosque in several attempts but militants didn’t let them entered in the ground of holy place. The siege of Khana Kaba continued for almost two weeks until SSG commandos of Pakistan Army led by former army chief General Pervez Musharraf cleared the area from militants.

The strategy applied by the commandos to regain the Grand Mosque was quite successful and they rescued the hostage pilgrims without any bloodshed. The sharp shooters and snipers of militants held the key positions at the ground of Grand Mosque and they didn’t let any person entered from the gates.

SSG commandos entered in the Grand Mosque by using helicopters and pushed the militants into basement. That’s was the best chance to capture them without bloodshed at holy place. The captain of the commandos asked the Saudis to flood the basement. Once the basement flooded with water, they electrocuted it which made the militants unconscious.

All the militants including Abdullah Hamid Mohammed Al-Qahtani and Juhaiman ibn Muhammad ibn Saif al Utaibi were arrested alive and sent to imprisonment. The Khana Kaba was cleared within two hours and SSG commandos did wonderful job which won the hearts of every Muslim. It was one of the glorious moments of Pakistan Army.

Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi in the light of Quran & Ahadith.

Question:
Please give me the evidence about Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi in the light of Quran & Ahadith.

Ans.
Before writing the arguments of Eid Milad-un-Nabi (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him), I want to clear the meaning of Milad according to literature and Shariah.

The word Milad has been derived from “viladut” which means birth. Therefore, according to Arabic language, Milad is word which signifies the place and time of birth. In the light of Shariah, we means, Milad is to remember the events which took place at the birth time of the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) and we get the opportunity of narrating the Seerat of the Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) on this occasion, we also presents the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) gifts of Durood -o- salam. We mention before the people attributes and praises of the Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him). We do not believe that Milad is specified with same night but, we believe that the remembrance of the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) is incumbent in each minute and second of time and every Muslim should act it sunnahs in the whole life time. Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) is a great source of preaching. It is incumbent for scholars to teach Muslims nations on this Holy occasion, moral behavior of the Holy Prophet, (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) his antiquates, His affairs, His Seerat, His dealings and His worships.

Now I write the proofs of Milad from the Holy Quran, the hadith of the Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) and consensus of Ulemas.

Evidence of the Holy Quran
The Qur’anic verses proves that to celebrate Milad is not only a proper deed but it is also a praiseworthy.

1) Allah Almighty says in Quran:

“The peace is on Him the day when he was born and the day when he will die and the day when he will be raised alive.” (Kanzul Iman the translation of Holy Quran, Sura Al-Maryam, Verse 15)

In the above verse Allah Almighty has mentioned the complete Milad of Hazrat Yahya (Alaihis Salam). And before this Allah Almighty has mentioned the events which took place before the birth. It is the same way of celebrating birth day as Ahle Sunnat adopts for the Milad of the last Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) of Allah Almighty. In other words the Prophet of Allah Almighty Hazrat Isa (Alaihis Salam) celebrates his own Milad.

2) As Allah Almighty says:

“And the same peace on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I would be raised alive.”
(Kanzul Iman the translation of Holy Quran, Sura Al Maryam, Verse 33)

Before this verse Allah Almighty has stated the whole story of Maryam (Allah may pleased with him) that who she got pregnant and gave birth her great son, the Prophet of Allah Isa (Alaihi Salam). Allah Almighty also mentioned the words of Isa (Alaihis Salam) by which Isa (Alaihis Salam) praised himself. This style of narrating story is nothing but celebration of Milad of Isa Alaihis Salam. Ahle Sunnat also narrate the story of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) in the same style. We too narrate the events which took place before the birth and after it as Allah Almighty narrated about Yahya and Isa (Alaihimus Salam). Therefore, a person who has eyes of justice will obviously accept that to celebrate Milad is an important deed which Allah Almighty has done. So it proves that the basis of Milad is found in the Holy Quran.

3) Allah Almighty says:

“And remind them of the days of the Allah.”
(Kanzul Iman the translation of Holy Quran, Sura Ibrahim, Verse5)

In this verse Allah Almighty orders his prophet Musa Alaihis Salam to remind his nation the days of Allah Almighty. “The days of Allah” are those days in which great events took place or Allah Almighty bestowed his great rewards to his creature. As the Holy Quran testifies this explanation of the days of Allah Almighty. In the Holy Quran Musa Alaihis Salam says:

“And when Musa said it his people remember Allah’s favor upon you, when he delivered you from Firawn’s people who used to afflict you worstly, and slaughter your sons and let your daughters live and in it there was shown great mercy of your lord.” (Kanzul Iman the translation of Holy Quran, Sura Ibrahim, Verse 6)

According to the Qur’anic verse emancipation of the nation of Musa Alaihis Salam from Firawn is a day of Allah, so the birth day of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) is, with any doubt, also a day of Allah, because the Prophet Muhammad (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) emancipated whole world from the darkness of ignorance and brought them to the light of guidance. Therefore, the birthday (Milad) of the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) deserves to be celebrated then the celebration of any other event. In case we would not be grateful to Allah Almighty for his favor, which is Muhammad (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him). He will punish us severely. As Allah Almighty says:

“And remember when your lord proclaimed, if you will be great full then I shall give you more and if you’re thankless then my treatment is severe.”
(Kanzul Iman the translation of Holy Quran, Sura Ibrahim, and Verse 7)

4) Allah Almighty says:
“Then remember the bounties of Allah and wander not in the earth spreading mischief.”
(Kanzul Iman the translation of Holy Quran, Sura Araf, Verse 74)

In the above verse Allah Almighty orders us to remember his bounties and rewards. The last Prophet of Allah Almighty Muhammad (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) is, undoubtedly, great blessing of Allah Almighty for whole mankind. Allah Almighty himself considers the Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) his great favor for mankind as He says:

“Undoubtedly, Allah did a great favor to the Muslims that in them from among themselves sent a messenger who recites unto them His signs and purifies them and teaches them the book and wisdom and necessarily before that they were certainly apparent error.
(Kanzul Iman the translation of Holy Quran, Sura Ale Imran, Verse 164)

Therefore, according to the Qur’anic commandments we must remember the beloved Prophet of Allah Muhammad (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) and Milad-un-Nabi is a best way of remembrance of the greatest Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him).
In another words Allah Almighty says:

“And publicize well the favor of your lord”
(Kanzul Iman the translation of Holy Quran, Sura Al Duha, Verse 11)

The companion of the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) Hazrat Abdullah Ibne Abbas (Allah is well pleased with Him) explained the word favors. He says here, In this verse favor signifies the prophet hood and Islam.
(Tafseer Ibne Abbas, Sure Al Duha, Page 651).

So in the light of the given explanation by the cousin of the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him), we can say that Allah Almighty orders us to remember Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) in our gatherings between the people, in our mosque between the worshiper and in our houses between our families and Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him), as I have written is a best way for this Qur’anic purpose.

4) Allah Almighty orders us:
“Say you oly Allah’s grace and his mercy, on it therefore let them rejoice. That is better then all their wealth.”

In this verse Allah Almighty orders us to enjoy on his grace and mercy. If we see around us we find that each favor of Allah Almighty is great mercy for us. Even our existence is also a mercy of Allah Almighty. But the greatest of Allah is the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him). As Allah Almighty says:

“And we sent not you but mercy for all worlds.”
(Kanzul Iman the translation of Holy Quran, Sura Al Ambiyaa, Verse 107)

So according the Qur’anic teachings it is necessary for us that ewe must be happy and pleased on the birthday of the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him). The one who pleases with the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) is really a true follower of the Quran. And it is obvious that, in whole world Muslims celebrates Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him). Specially for enjoying the mercy of Allah Almighty that is the beloved prophet of Allah Almighty (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him)Therefore the Holy Quran itself confirms the Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him)

5) The gathering of Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) incite Muslims on saying Durood and Salam ( to pray for prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) of blessing and peace) Allah Almighty says:

“Oh you who I believe send upon Him blessing and salute Him fully well in abundance. (Kanzul Iman the translation of Holy Quran, Sura Al Ahzab, Verse 56)

According to the law of Shariah, a thing which is desired by Shariah, is exactly a like an aim of Shariah. And the benefits of Durood -o- salam are so much in numbers that can not be counted. Durood -o- salam causes for the help of Allah Almighty in this world and here after. So Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) is a source of fulfilling the commandments of Allah Almighty

6) Allah Almighty says:

“And all that we narrate to you of the tidings of the messengers is for the purpose of strengthening your heart therewith.” (Kanzul Iman the translation of Holy Quran, Sura Hood, Verse 121)

This Qur’anic verse reveals that the wisdom of mentioning the stories and events of Prophets (Alaihis salam) was to stand fast the heart of the last prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him). And it is obvious that we are, also today, in need of being stand fast. We must know that how; the prophet of Allah (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) faced the problems of his time so that we may face the problems of our times according to the Sunnah. Therefore Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) provides us an opportunity to know about the affair of the Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him).

Evidence of Hadith (Narrations of the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him)There are many narrations, which proves the Milad Sharif but I write a few.1) The Prophet of Allah (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) himself stated his own birth from very beginning He says: “I had been transferred, continuously, from purified offspring to purified wombs. I had been given birth by a lawful marriage not by adultery. When Allah Almighty sent Adam Alaihis Salam on earth so He put me in his spine and then transferred in Nuh Alaihis salam in his boat, and then in Ibrahim Alaihis salam Allah Almighty transferred me continuously from noble offspring to the purified wombs up to that He brought me in my parents who never committed adultery.”
(Tafseer Ruhul Bayan, Vol. 3, Page 54)

As I have written in the beginning that Milad means the time of birth or place of birth. So the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) himself celebrated his own Milad. In the same way Ahle Sunnat following the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him)narrate the events of the birth of the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) .This hadith is the clear proof Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) and as well as tell us that to celebrate Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) is not innovation (bidat) but it is a sunnah (tradition) of Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him).

There are many other narrations which narrate that the Prophet of Allah (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) celebrate his own Milad several times, some of those narrations have been written in Mishkat Sharif.

2) “The one who rejoices on the birth day of the Holy Prophet would not be severely punished and it is hopped that a Muslim who celebrate the Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him), will not be punished in hell. Imam Bukhari Rahmatullah Alaih narrates that Abu Lahab would be punished lightly in the hell on Monday. Because he rejoiced and freed his handmaid indicating by his finger, when the Prophet of Allah Almighty (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) took birth. So as a reward of happiness on Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) he would be given water by his finger. (Saheehul Bukhari Vol. 2, Page 764)

Imam Shams ud din Naseer Al Damaishqi narrates this hadith in poetry. Here is its translation.

If such kafir was denounced (in the Quran)
And perished are his hands, and in the flame is his eternal abode.
It is narrated every Monday.
His torment is made easy for his joy at the birth of Ahmad. (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him)
What is the expectation then of a servant who spent all his life.
Happy with the arrival of Ahmad (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) and died on the one ness of Allah Almighty. (Haul-ul-Ahtifal Bil Mawlid Al-Nabvi Al Sharif, Page 11)

2) The Holy Prophet Muhammad (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) celebrated his own Milad by having fast. Imam Wali ud din write this narration with reference to the Saheeh Muslim. When the Prophet of Allah (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) was asked about the fast of Monday. He (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) said:

“I took birth and the Quran was revealed upon me in this day.”
(Mishkat Sharif, Page 179)

This narration proves that to celebrate Milad un Nabi is a tradition of the Holy Prophet (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him) on every Monday. Secondly it is lawful to fix a particular day for Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him). Thirdly it is an act of sunnah to worship in the pleasure of the Milad un Nabi (Allah’s Grace and Peace be upon him)

Evidence of general consensus of Muslim ummah and scholars (Ulema)1) Imam Al-Hafiz Al-Suyuti in his famous book “Al-Hawii Lil-Fatawii” allocated a special chapter on that topic and named it “The Excellence of Objective in Celebrating the Mawlid” where he said: The question under consideration is what the verdict of the Shari’ah on celebrating the Holy Birthday of the Noble Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) during the month of Rabbi-ul-Awwal. From the point of view of Shari’ah is this a praiseworthy action or a blameworthy one? And do those who arrange such celebration Receive blessings or not? He said:“The reply to this question is that in my view the Milad Shareef (Celebration of the Birthday of the Noble Prophet Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) is in fact such an occasion of happiness on which people assemble and recite the Holy Qu’ran to the extent that is easy. Then they relate the prophecies concerning the appearance of the Noble Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) that have been transmitted in Ahadith and Author, and the miraculous events and signs that took place on his birth. Then food is set before them and according to their desire they partake thereof to satisfaction. This festival of celebrating the birthday of the Noble Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) is a Bid’ah Hasanah (good Innovation) and those arranging it will get blessing, since in such a celebration is found the expression of joy and happiness at the greatness and eminence of the Noble Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) and his birth”.

Even Ibn Tay’miah said in his book “Necessity of the Right Path”, p. 266, 5th line from the bottom of that page, published by Dar Al-Hadith, the following:

“As far as what people do during the Milad, either as a rival celebration to that which the Christian do during the time of Christ’s birthday or as an expression of their love and admiration and a sign of praise for the Noble Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him), Allah Almighty will surely reward them for such Ijtihad”. He then said: “Although Milad was not practiced by (Salaf), they should have done so since there was no objection against it from the Shari’ah point of view”.
And we certainly only celebrate Milad out of love and admiration to the Prophet of all Mankind.

  1. Imam Al-Hafiz Al-Qastalani, who gave commentary on Sahih Bukhari, said: “May Allah Almighty shower his Mercy upon a person who takes the days of the month of Rabbi-ul-Awwal, in which the Noble Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) was born, as days of feast and celebration for doing so is the best cure for the heart of an ailing person.”
  2. Al-Hafiz Ibn Hajar was asked, same reference of Imam Suyuti, about Milad Shareef. His reply was:

“Milad Shareef is, in fact, and innovation, which was not transmitted from any pious predecessor in the first three centuries. Nevertheless, both acts of virtue as well as acts of abomination are found in it (i.e. Sometimes acts of virtue are found therein and sometimes acts of abomination). If in the Milad Shareef only acts of virtue are done and acts of abomination are abstained from, then the Milad Shareef is a Bid’ah Hasanah (good innovation), otherwise not.”
He then added ”
“To do any virtuous act and to observe it annually as means of recollection for any special day on which Allah Almighty has bestowed any favor or removed any calamity is a form of showing gratitude to Allah Almighty. Gratitude to Allah Almighty is expressed through different kinds of Ibaadah (worship) -prostration and standing in prayer, charity and recitation of the Holy Qu’ran. And what is a greater favor from Allah Almighty can there be than the appearance of the Prophet of Mercy (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) on this day (i.e. 12th of Rabbi-ul-Awwal)?” Some people do not limit it and celebrate the Milad Shareef on any day of Rabbi-ul-Awwal. Nay, some people have extended it even more and increased the period to the whole year. According to the latter, the Milad Shareef can be celebrated on any day of the year. The objective here is the same, i.e. to rejoice at and celebrate the Holy Birth of the Noble Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him).

  1. Imam Abu-Bakr Abdullah Al-Dimashqi compiled a number of books on the subject and called them “Collection of Traditions on the Birth of the Chosen Prophet”, “The Pure Expression on the Birthday of the Best of Creations” and “The Spring for the Thirsty One on the Birth of the Rightly Guided”.
  2. Imam Al-Hafiz Al-Iraqi wrote a book and called it “The Pure Spring on the Sublime Birth”.
  3. Imam Ibn Dahyah wrote a book and called it “Enlightenment on the Birthday of the Bearer of Good News, The Warner”.
  4. Imam Mulla Ali Qari wrote a book and called it “The Quenching Spring on the Birthday of the Prophet”. (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him)
  5. Imam Shams ul-Din bin Naseer Al-Dimashqi, said in his book: “The Spring for the Thirsty One on the Birth of the Rightly Guided” about the story of Abu Lahab that he will receive a light punishment every Monday for expressing joy at the birth of the Noble Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon him) on that day. The Imam said the following verse of poetry, the translation is: If such Kafir was denounced in the (Qur’an) and perished are his hands, and in the Flames is his eternal abode It is narrated that every Monday.
    His torment is made easy for his Joy at the Birth of Ahmad What is the expectation then of a servant who spent all his life Happy with the Arrival of Ahmad (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him) and died on the Oneness of Allah.
  6. Imam Shams Ul-Din Ibn aL-Jazri, the Imam of reciters, wrote a book and named it “The Scent of Notification on the Blessed Birthday”.
  7. Imam Al-Hafiz Ibn Al-Jawzi said in the description of Milad: “Peace and Tranquility takes over during that year and a good glad tiding to obtain your wish and inspiration”.
  8. Imam Abu-Shamah, The Sheikh of Al Hafiz Al Nawawi, said:

“The best of the innovations of our times is what is carried out on the day of corresponding to the birthday of our Beloved Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon Him), where people give out donations, practice what is right, express their joy and happiness, in doing so is surely a sign of love and admiration for the Prophet (Allah’s Grace & Peace be upon him)”.



{July 21, 2013}   What if there was No MQM ?

Image

I sometimes wonder what would happen to Pakistan’s politics if there was no MQM. Who would they blame for all their misery and plight? Who would be the common enemy? Who would be branded as traitors? Who would be used to distract the people of Pakistan of their real issues like electricity, jobs and security? What would happen to those who like to find all solutions of their troubles by just criticizing MQM ?

What more? What would happen to the people of Karachi and Southern Sindh who have gotten there as where they are today because of MQM ? So what would be the world like without MQM today. I’m blogging to draw an outline of a Karachi and Hyderabad without MQM. Than let you decide if you could have a progressive Pakistan without MQM and its leader Altaf Hussain.

1986 was the year when I was in Class three when I heard a sudden burst of fire next to my school whose window over looked into the Qasba area of Karachi. As my teacher came to take me down stairs. I could see people which I would not name taking aim at my school. I remember strongly my worried father rushing to take me back home. The same year I remember that whilst shopping with my Dad one Friday afternoon; all chaos broke loose when again a certain ethnicity was about to attack the area and we remember that my Dad drove our Toyota 74 Corolla like crazy into the thin alleys to save us from the probable attackers. I remember growing up out of fear at that time. These were the formative years of MQM.

Now lets assume if MQM by any chance was not formed. The Jihadist who were behind all these actions at that time and not an ethnicity would have taken over the city. Imagine if at that time those who suffered did not fight back or by any chance people would not have united behind MQM and its leadership especially Mr. Altaf Hussein. What could have happened to the city? We all crib today that lawlessness was introduced by MQM. But people MQM came into existence fighting off the same lawlessness. What if the guy taking an aim at my school would have shot me or my friends? I am sure any one even living in Lahore or confines of Islamabad would not like to even imagine it for a moment.

Technically speaking, three parties or may be a fourth would have held between them the mandate of the city. So would it have still stopped the Bhatta in the city since it always there before MQM and since we as a nation anyways decided to host an international terrorist like Dawood Ibrahim in our city in the mid 90’s, which we of course deny. He would have introduced it any ways. Would Lyari known for pushing drugs and smuggling would have desisted from doing their traditional way of business? I doubt so.

Come 1996 when Taliban movement picked up. And possibly with strong roots in Karachi without MQM many of our sons would have become fodder in an insane conflict in Afghanistan. Without MQM we might have been under attack post September 11 as it was MQM which showed solidarity with the international world by taking a peace rally and rightfully so; as now we are discovering via many commissions that most of the Al Qaeda terrorists were in Karachi. Imagine all of us would have been assumed in the same stride and an emotional USA’s reaction could have been painful.

The people of Karachi who are today seen as liberal and reformists in the eyes of the world would have been seen as terrorists instead. Would there have existed a Zamzama, even the modern schools which we all take pride in? Would there have existed even Cinema’s which were burned at the first opportunity during riots by Islamists? Would our daughters and sisters have been allowed to go to schools or colleges? Imagine without MQM; the influx of Talibans or Jihadists life could have been like living as in some parts of KPK. What worst we could have handed over a strategic port to these elements since we can see our establishment do not look in control over them.

Now lets not forget the feudals and landlords who were in control of the city. Do you think they would not have continued grabbing land. The nucleus of all parties which is corrupt would not have continued doing what they are good at i.e. loot and plunder? Who would have stood for your rights as we can see there is no allocation in the recent Sind budget for Urban Sind and there was hardly anything before.

Today, what ever any one might say. Karachi is not Talibanized. The people of Karachi who anyway would have been called Mohajirs for the rest of the life feel empowered to serve the nation. Now don’t say they would not have as in interviews during 90’s including myself at the Army application center I was reminded that I am a son of a Mohajir very rudely. Karachi continues to be the hub of Pakistan against all odds where efforts were made to malign its position by pushing development elsewhere and most importantly a united Karachi and Urban Sind has a more say in the center. Unlike where sorry to mention that now only one or two cities i.e. Lahore or Islamabad run the country whilst the rest are there to support. Correct me if I am wrong the same Nawaz Sharif who was so anxious to see Chief Justice to go to Mazar e Quaid on May 12th 2007 is yet to visit it after taking oath as a Prime Minister.

ImageKarachi Nights

Now I am sure I would invite the ire of many. But in my view and the many others. MQM and its leadership is the most sincere party to the Urban Sind whilst the rest like JI and PTI just want to use it as one of the cards up its sleeve in the center whilst for MQM this is the only card. All the more reason why they are sincere to it. Now we should not forget that MQM stood shoulder by shoulder with our Army and its intelligence when Talibans were cutting to size our soldiers elsewhere in the country. MQM has contributed through its manpower and its support to build Pakistan. Whilst they still await justice for Qasba massacre, Hyderabad carnage and the 1992 operation. They still stand by Pakistan. Now this shows clearly their sincerity to the nation that their forefathers built and I am sure if given its due credit can pull Pakistan out of its misery where they have proven if they could do it against all the odds in Urban Sind with hands tied. I am sure due to their strong nucleus and leader ship could deliver the same for Pakistan. Now I leave that for you to decide. Do you still want to see a Pakistan with or without MQM? My vote lies with it for our Pakistan. Pakistan Zindabad!

Fireworks Photography

There are many exciting scenes around you that you can take photos of. You can take photos of wildlife, sports actions, nature, or portraits of your friends and family. However, one of the most exciting scenes to capture on your DSLR is a fireworks display. Here are some tips and camera settings for capturing picture perfect fireworks actions.

Image

Location

Get to the location a bit early and try to collect information on fireworks display timing, set up & from where the fireworks will be coming from. Find the right place with a nice foreground & background view  to position yourself, and take a few photos to get a feel of the focus. You will need to be quick in focusing, especially if the fireworks display is not going to last very long.

Lens

A regular lens will do when you’re taking fireworks photos, so if you’re new to photography and haven’t purchased a wide variety of lenses, don’t worry because the lens that your DSLR came with will be just fine. You don’t need a fast lens to shoot Fireworks. Remember, you are shooting bright light (fireworks trails), not the dark (sky). Zoom lenses are flexible & they make it easier to compose.

Tripod & Remote

A good quality tripod is a must for fireworks photography. The beauty of fireworks photography is in capturing the light trail or blur of the fireworks. To achieve that a long shutter speed (4-10 sec) is required. To keep the camera totally still & shake free for that long exposure a tripod will be very useful. Bulb mode is the best for fireworks photography. So, a remote release would also be very useful.

No Tripod?

However, if you don’t have a tripod with you, you can make do with something sturdy that you can brace the camera on. You will be shooting from a good distance from the actual fireworks display so you shouldn’t have much trouble finding something sturdy. The top of your car, or any other car, a steel railing or a fallen tree will do. Anything sturdy that you can use will do.

 

Focus

Focus manually. One tip on setting your focus settings early is to pick an object about the same distance as the fireworks.This is why it is important to know exactly where the fireworks will be coming from. Once you have a good idea of the distance, you can set you focus to an object approximately the same distance. When the actual fireworks display starts, you will already have your camera focused.

Aperture

For your exposure settings, it would be good to set aperture to f/8 to f/16. Confused because you’ll be shooting in the dark? Don’t be because you may be shooting in the dark but your target will be pretty bright.

Shutter

Best setting for fireworks photography is “Bulb”. To catch motion blur of fireworks 4-10 sec long shutter speed produces the best result. For that “bulb” setting & a remote provides more control. Well, if you don’t have a remote or cable release use your camera’s self timer.

ISO

You will also want to use ISO 100 to keep down the noise as much as possible.  Fireworks photographs are great if taken without too much noise and an ISO setting of 100 keeps down that noise as much as possible.

Composition & Tips

Once you’ve taken the first shot, take a short moment to analyze the photo so you can adjust your settings accordingly. You will most likely have taken quite a number of shots on your first try so you can capture the burst and not just the rocket going up. Quickly move to the frame where you captured the burst and analyze it. Avoid too many burst in a single frame. Early part of the display is the best for shooting fireworks. Later the sky becomes cloudy & hazy.

Fireworks photography is actually pretty simple, the only thing to really be aware of is to keep the camera very steady. Plan ahead so you can bring a tripod with you, but if you don’t have one and need to take the photos with the camera in your hands, make sure that you find a sturdy spot to brace yourself against.

 

 




Is it ?

الطاف بھائی کے پیٹ کا درد
جی ہاں ایم کیوایم کے قائد الطاف حسین کے پیٹ میں آج کل پھر سے پاکستان کی محبت کا درد اٹھ رہا ہے، اور وہ
پاکستان کو اس کے بانی جناح صاحب کا پاکستان بنانا چاہتے ہیں۔
شاید الطاف حسین کا ابھی جی نہیں بھرا ہے ،تاریخ تو شاید انہوں نے بھی پڑھی ہوگی، کچھ نہیں تو اپنے بزرگوں سے حادثاتِ ہجرت کے دلسوز واقعات تو سنے ہی ہوں گے، کیا وہ تقسیم ہند کے وقت اپنے آباﺅ اجداد کی جا بجا بکھری ہ
وئی لاشوں کے مناظر بھول گئے ہیں، اور شاید وہ ہجرت کی تکلیفوں کو بھی بھول گئے ہیں جو کہ دنیا کی تاریخ کی سب سے بڑی ہجرت تھی،ہمارے خیال میں اب تک تو ان کو سبق سیکھ لینا چاہیے تھا،لیکن وہ بضد ہیں اورایک بار پھر اپنی قوم کو ایک کڑے امتحان میں ڈالنا چاہتے ہیں۔
بھئی اگر اس ملک کا ایک طبقہ ہم کو پتھروں کے زمانے میں لے جانا چاہتا ہے، اپنی طرز کا اسلامی نظام حکومت دینا چاہتا ہے، عورتوں کی تعلیم اور ملازمتوں پر پابندی لگانا چاہتا ہے، بچیوں کے سروں میں ذرا ذرا سی بات پر گولیاں اتارنا چاہتا ہے تو الطاف بھائی کو کیا تکلیف ہے، طالبان سے ان کی کیا ایسی پرخاش ہے کہ وہ ان کو ایک آنکھ نہیں بھاتے،صدیوں کے بھٹکے ہوئے یہ جاہل آخری عمر میں کیا خاک مسلماں ہوں گے۔
آج کے پاکستان میں کسی بھی عام یا خاص شخص سے یہ کون سا سوال ہے کہ آپکو کس کا پاکستان چاہیے قائد اعظم کا یا طالبان کا، تو بھائی ان لوگوں سے کیا توقع رکھتے ہو جو کہ ایک صبح چودہ اگست کو اچانک پاکستانی بن گئے ، یا پھر مودودی کے چیلوں سے کیا امیدرکھی جائے جو کہ پہلے دن سے ہی اس ملک کے مخالف رہے تھے اور ہمارے قائد اعظم کو کافر اعظم کہتے تھے، یا پھر ان لوگوں سے یہ سوال جو راجہ داہر کو اپنا رہبر مانتے تھے،سرحدی گاندھیوں کے اس ملک میں ایسا ریفرنڈم کسی کے پیٹ کادرد ہی ہو سکتا ہے،دماغ کا خلل یا پھر کوئی ایسا جنون جو ہمیں پاکستان کے کسی اور سیاسی رہنما میں تو دکھائی نہیں دیا۔
ہم یہاں متحدہ قومی موومنٹ کے حامیوں سے یہ با ت ضرور کہیں گے کہ اس ریفرینڈم سے وہ کوئی زیادہ اچھی توقعات نہ رکھیں، نتیجہ شاید ان کے حق میں آنے کی امید بہت کم ہے، اب یہ ایک مختلف پاکستان ہے، جہاں شریف بدمعاش ہے، جہاں عدل سیاسی ہے، میڈیا کمرشل ہے بس ایک عسکری ادارہ ہی ایسا ہے جو کہ ہر مشکل وقت میں ملک کو بھنور سے نکال دیتا ہے اور اس کے باوجود گالیاں سننے کو ملتی ہیں۔ یہ وہ ملک ہے کہ زر مبادلہ بھیجنے والے ریڑھ کی ہڈی اورسیز پاکستانی سوتیلی اولاد کے طرح ہیں جنہیں ووٹ دینے کا اختیار تو دور کی بات ان پر تو اپنے ہی ملک میں رہنمائی سے محروم کرنے کی بات کی جاتی ہے۔
اگر غور سے دیکھا جائے تو جغرافیائی طور پر پاکستان اب شہری سندھ تک ہی اصل پاکستان رہ گیا ہے، ریفرینڈم تو اب یہ ہونا چاہیے کہ آپ کو پاکستان چاہیے یا پھر ہم جتنا بچا سکتے ہیں اتنا بچا لیں اور اپنے سینے سےلگا کر رکھ لیں ، جس پاکستان کو ہمارے آباو اجداد نے لہو دے کر سینچا تھا ہم اپنا لہو دے کر اس کو پروان چڑھا لیں گے۔ اگر ایسا ریفرینڈم کیا جائے تو ہمیں امید ہے کہ مسئلے کا حل جلد نکل آئے گا، ورنہ الطاف بھائی اور ان کی قوم بھیک میں ملی ہوئی حب الوطنی کو خیرات کی طرح سمیٹتے رہیں گے ۔ ادھرآنے والا مورخ شاید کچھ اور لکھنے کی تیاری کر رہا ہے، اسے پتہ ہے کہ یہ وہ لوگ ہیں جن کی ٹھوکر میں زمانہ ہے، اور اس ملک کے نام نہاد سیاسی رہنما یہ نہیں جانتے کہ حب الوطن ہی اس ملک کے لئے ریفرینڈم کرارہے ہیں انہیں آپ سے محب الوطن ہونے کا سرٹیفیکٹ نہیں چاہیے۔

{October 16, 2012}   Is Malala a conspiracy ?

Madeeha Ishtiaque

With the recent buzz made by certain newspapers and social media platforms, the questions that has popped up with a bang is, what is the story behind Gul Makai’s Swat Diary on BBC blogs?

The reason behind this recent development may be Abdul Hai Kakar’s, (the BBC reporter who worked with Malala) recent accounts of how the whole idea came about. Post this, rumors and conspiracy theories questioning the credibility of the 11 years girl’s account are resonating in the surrounds.

Essentially, in order to bring about a ‘humanitarian angle’ to the situation in Swat and in Northern areas, as Kakar mentions in his online interview to a newspaper, how he came up and structured the idea of Swat Diary to be written by a young girl to ‘creatively and objectively portray the situation on ground in Swat’. The concept was to choose a local girl to ‘express her emotions’ and so to represent the silenced majority of Swati girls who were denied their right to education were given a face – Malala’s. He further elaborated that with her father’s unresistant willingness to choose Malala for the job, he would phone her up every day so she could narrate the happenings of her area and her reflections on the same.

Now, whether it was Malala’s own narrative or the reporter trying to elicit a formatted response and later manicuring it to pass for a child’s narrative, are questions that seem to disturb a large audience. An audience who had happily credited an 11-year old Swati girl for her surprising maturity and sheer bravery in breaking ideological and physical shackles to raise her voice against injustice. However, my question is, should this be the pivot of importance or the fact that a father was willing to risk his child’s safety and a young girl who feared the least voicing the truth out loud, only to protect her fellows from the austerity Taliban had in ample stocks. Shouldn’t this effort be appreciated instead of being questioned?

Recently, there seems to be a concentrated effort on face book, twitter and other social media forums to justify attack against Malala, calling her a US agent and the whole issue a foreign conspiracy.

‘ Why Malala alone? Why not a dozen of Pakistani women who die of drones everyday or those who become a sacrifice in terrorist activities? Why Obama has his helicopter on hold for only her? Why prayers are being said for Malala and not for several other daughters attacked and bruised in various terror strikes?’

As a monosyllabic response: True. If you ask for more, what’s the surprise here? This is only our national tragedy to idolize those who manage to blaze the news. The rest deserve a discriminatory attitude and to learn a lesson that to earn one’s basic right and people’s support, you’ve got to make it to the headlines, else you’re eclipsed.

Hence, as we put the conspiracy theories to rest, for there are better matters clamoring for attention, including getting rid of the terrorist elements hostaging our children and lands to meet their own ends and our own disposition of noticing things only when they get a hype.




The filmmaker who produced an incendiary anti-Muslim movie that stirred extremists Tuesday to storm the U.S. embassy in Egypt and may be linked to the fatal attack on the U.S. ambassador in Libya has gone into hiding, as doubts rose as to his true identity.

Following yesterday’s riots, a California man calling himself Sam Bacile took credit for making the film “Innocence of the Muslims” and identified himself as an Israeli Jew in two news interviews. In an interview with the Associated Press, he called Islam “a cancer.”

But a search of public records and inconsistencies in Bacile’s own accounts, as well as information from a radical Christian who helped produced the movie all suggest that “Sam Bacile” is a pseudonym and is not Israeli but an Arab Christian.

“I’ve met him twice. He is not a citizen of Israel. He is in hiding,” Steve Klein, a member of a far-right anti-Islamic Christian group who says he helped with the film’s production, told ABC News.

Klein said Bacile was not Israeli or Jewish, and suggested he was an Arab Christian who was a U.S. citizen.

Three U.S. Christian groups, including two identified as hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Council, and a third that advocates for Egyptian Christians, or Copts, have been linked to the production or eventual distribution of the movie.

The controversial Florida Pastor Terry Jones, who in 2010 sparked riots in Afghanistan after burning copies of the Koran, told ABC News in that he had been contacted to help distribute the film.

Klein, a member of the Church of Kaweah, listed as an anti-Muslim hate group, said Bacile and the film’s other backers were “refugees from the Middle East.”

“The folks that I’m working with have come from a culture where they’ve been tracked down, driven from their homes. Close family members have been kidnapped, raped and murdered,” said Klein of the filmmaker.

Christians in much of the Middle East are persecuted and their plight has been made a cause for many American fundamentalist Christians.

Morris Sadek, head of the National American Coptic Assembly, an Egyptian Christian group based in the U.S., confirmed to Reuters that he was involved in the film’s planned distribution.

Clips of the low-budget movie, which portrays the prophet Mohammed as a fraud, pedophile and homosexual appeared on the YouTube page of a person identified as “Sam Bacile,” who also left a later YouTube comment in colloquial Egyptian Arabic.

“Islam is a cancer, period,” Sam Bacile told the Associated Press in an interview before he allegedly went into hiding.

In two back-to-back interviews, Bacile gave conflicting and inconsistent pieces of information to two news outlets.

In an interview with the AP, Bacile, said he was 56 years old, in another, with the Wall Street Journal, he said he was 52. According to his YouTube profile he is 75 years old.

In one interview “Bacile” called himself “an Israeli Jew,” in the other he called himself an “Israeli-American.” Klein had indicated in an interview that Bacile was concerned for relatives still in Egypt.

Searches of U.S. public records including civil and criminal court documents and real estate filings revealed no mention anyone with Bacile’s name.

There is no record of a Sam Bacile, or a similarly named person, having received a real estate license in California.

A 13-minute trailer for the video was posted in July and received little notice.

Last week the trailer was dubbed in Arabic. The video was quickly viewed tens of thousands of times, but more importantly it was aired and discussed by influential and radical Muslim preachers with large satellite television audiences.

Many of the protesters in Egypt had never seen the video, but said it sparked them to storm the U.S. embassy on the anniversary of Sept. 11.




2013 is going to be the election year in Pakistan. There is a lot of political hip hop in Pakistan at the moment. Pakistan People’s Party has been in power for a record 5th time in history of Pakistan and have ruled us in last five years. Looking at the inflation, unemployment, war on terror impacts on Pakistanis and especially the energy crisis in Pakistan, PPP has failed miserably in governance. Imran Khan has become a self proclaimed messiah of the doomed nation in the mean time. I have impartially considered him to see if he deserves my vote, and the answer my analysis as a layman brings forward is a big NO. Here are my reasons to say No to Imran Khan’s Change.

  • Imran Khan a rolling stone???

Pakistanis have loved Imran Khan deeply. There were slogans like “Lion of Pakistan, Imran Khan, Imran Khan” in the 1980s which I remember from my childhood. What was the back ground? Did Imran present the country’s budget? No. Was it some meeting with a foreign delegation for future direct investment? No. Was he involved in preparing the country’s defence plan? No. Then what was the source of love and respect he gained? Oh now I remember. He was a sportsman. One of the best ones in his field. He is from a family of cricketers, and he has spent 45 years of his life becoming an expert in Cricket. One fine day he decides to sort out the social, legal, governance, health, poverty, employment and defence related problems of Pakistan and that makes me laugh. A person who has all his life’s experience in Cricket considers himself better for running a country? Too optimistic and kiddish. Is Imran a rolling stone not? Who will gather no moss?

  • Imran Khan’s language-do I want my representative to speak like he does nowadays?

Not at all. With power comes responsibility. This is especially true if you are an elected member of national assembly. A person who ridicules his opponents (well till the time they remain his opponents) with language not worthy of it, how will he treat the people if he ever comes in power? What happened to the decent Imran Khan we knew? Or was the “Finally “I” managed to win the world Cup” speech is just his nature? His language is most definitely my reason of NOT voting for him.

  • Imran Khan’s focus-why is it adjusted on Punjab only?

One major thing that makes me believe Imran Khan is not a good choice for my vote is his extreme focus on Punjab. An unbiased review of the performance of all 4 provinces in last 5 years will prove that Punjab Government has launched a lot many projects for public benefit in comparison to the other 3 provincial governments and the federal government put together. In Punjab the 2010 floods were tackled much better in terms of relief in comparison to Sindh where flood water of 2010 is still standing in some low lying areas. Im sure Punjab can be run much better than this, but in the given circumstances it still happens to be the most well managed province in Pakistan. Why Imran Khan is NOT concerned about any other part of Pakistan? The people dying in target killings daily in Karachi are not Pakistanis? The Hazara shias being killed in Quetta are not Muslims? The people killed by Taliban and other extremists in KPK are not Humans? Why is his concern and criticism only focused on Punjab? Makes me believe Imran has no plan for Pakistan. Whatever he is planning is only for Punjab. This makes him unfit to get my vote as premiere of Pakistan.

  • Imran’s politics is too bookish

Pakistan is a complex socio-political region. We are not simple people to deal with. There are forces like religion, economics and social pressures of very different kinds that shape our daily lives. I find Imran Khan’s solution to our problems very bookish. Who in his right senses would claim he would end the war on terror on his first day in office? Or that he can root out corruption in this culture within 9 days?  This society is no Europe or USA. Imran seems to know very little about the nation he claims to be the savior of.

  • Imran’s followers and their “holier than thou” attitude

Something is wrong with Imran and his followers. I searched for information myself but couldn’t find any information related to how Imran Khan earns. Also, it looks like he never filed a tax return all his cricketing life. Amazing is the fact that Imran still points out others for not paying taxes. What can you think of a person who does not follow a rule, but wants others to follow? I do not want a person with this double standard to be my leader. Imran’s followers have every right to like him, but no right to disrespect other leaders. They follow Imran and use foul language. They go to the level that they declare you a non patriot if you don’t like Imran. Is Imran some kind of “farz”? No. And this attitude is trickling down from his own person to his followers. He considers himself better for no reason and after committing the same mistakes others do, he screams at top of his voice what others are doing. Again. Kiddish. Again, NO!

  • Imran’s zana case, and allegations on SKMH funds misuse

Being a Muslim do I really want a playboy of his youth to be my leader? No. Imran had an illegitimate daughter borne to Sita White. The kid in now in guardian custody of Jemima James, Imran’s ex wife. Though the court in USA has declared her to be Imran’s daughter where Sita White won the parental rights case against Imran, Tyrian Khan’s eyes are enough proof of her being Imran’s daughter. Being a playboy all his life, he has had a lot of illegal relationships out of wedlock with a number of women. The story does not end here. Imran Khan proves himself to be a hypocrite when he points fingers at others for looking at a woman. A recent press conference where he demanded from Nawaz Sharif the PML (N) chief to confirm if he has been loyal with his wife is something disgusting. This s disgusting not because of the cheapness of question, but because of the fact that the cheapest of all playboys is asking the question! Imran, a hypocrite-NO to him yet again!

Recently Khwaja Asif from PMLN has brought forward this issue of funds of zakat from SKMH being invested outside Pakistan. The information comes from the audit report of SKMH, so it cannot be a scam. SKMH is a great initiative by Imran Khan which he achieved by th support of all Pakistan. Doesn’t we deserve an explanation about this funds misuse? No explanation till now. Zakat funds CANNOT be used for investment. I have been donating to SKMH till this issue came to limelight and no one has ever asked me at SKMH collection booths about the money if it is zakat or not. The funds received are thus a mix of zakat and other donations and cannot and must not be misused. Imran can betray the people who stood by him for making this hospital a reality. Imran can take the credit of winning the World Cup alone when it was a squad of 16 who did it. Imran can betray his mother’s name in SKMH scams. Is he trust worthy then? NO.

  • Imran has no plan but allegations and statements only

Whenever I have tried to see Imran Khan’s point of view from a neutral point of view I have always found he has no plan. He knows nothing about how things work in Pakistan. All he can do is bringing forward more and more allegations. This style of work might be good for a Star Plus daily Soap but Pakistan for sure needs better workable plans. He brings forward allegations, claims to have proofs, never brings forward the proofs. So, is it all a hoax? Looks like that other wise he would have shown something-anything which can be considered as a proof in last 15 years. Indecent attitude- A big NO to Imran Khan.

  • Finally, Imran’s Team and his Change

Since we started having general elections in Pakistan, we have seen Kasuris, Tareens. Legharis-What’s new then? Where is the change? Just that we have to vote for the same person under a new party name and that is all? A Kasuri we have had in parliament some five times and now he is being introduced as a CHANGE? Imran Khan really considers Pakistanis to be idiots, isn’t it the case?

So, what do I say to a rolling stone, who uses indecent language, is focused only on one province out of four, offers bookish solutions, with a proven zana case and SKMH funds allegation still carries that “holier than thou” attitude, is all about allegations and no proofs and promises to bring change by bringing back all so familiar faces to the national assembly-A big NO!

Imran Khan does not deserve my Vote. That’s my analysis. I respect everybody’s views. Respect mine as well.

{August 17, 2012}   Who is Behind Kamra Attack ?

On August 16, one of the largest air bases in Pakistan, the Minhas air base located at Kamra in Central Punjab some 45 miles northwest of Islamabad, was attacked by Islamist militants as reported in the media. During the dark hours of the night they barged in from a nearby village with rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons wearing suicide bombing vests and disguised as military personnel. The Commandos of Pakistan Army were successfully able to counteract the aggression that went on for about eight hours and it resulted in the loss of one Pakistani soldier, damaged one aircraft and injured the base commander, Air Commodore Muhammad Azam.

Nine extremists have been reported dead during the scuffle which the Pakistani Taliban claimed was part of their plan for a long time. They are known for targeting different military sites in the Country to uproot Pakistan military’s strength, but have failed at every single time as the military intelligence is alert. According to Pakistan Air Force spokesman, Captain Tariq Mahmood, the Minhas air base at Kamra does not store nuclear weapons, contrary to the earlier media reports. In fact, he revealed that no air base in Pakistan has any nuclear weapons. The Minhas air base has several squadrons of fighter jets, including JF-17 fighter jets and surveillance planes and was declared clear after the search operations for any hiding militants were over.

The fact that it is located adjacent to the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex, which is a major air force research and development center, has made some analysts suspicious of Pakistan military’s readiness to such expected militant retaliations. However, this is not the first time that suicide bombers have launched attacks at the site, as in 2007 and 2009 the same place came under their threat. This latest one at Kamra could be seen as a result of the offensive Pakistan Army has declared for the tribal belt recently. The U.S. State Department did not seem to be perturbed in
its trust on Pakistan military’s capability, especially keeping with the recent improvement in their relations with Pakistan Army and believes the site being free of nuclear weapons.

Thus, these militants were made to think that it was a nuclear-armed air base by the enemies of Pakistan who want to destabilise it and show that Pakistani nukes are not in safe hands. Tracing back their such perception, it implies that the India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and Israel’s Institute for Intelligence and Special Operations, commonly known as Mossad, might have been behind instigating such havoc. It is clearly beyond the means of Pakistani Taliban to
exploit the Minhas air base and might be part of higher tactics against Pakistan military. Both RAW and Mossad has been insistent on claiming Pakistani nukes unsafe.

The Pakistani nation can take pride in Pakistan military that it has been able to shift the terrorist attacks away from innocent civilians as the decline in the terrorist incidents amongst the civilian population across Pakistan has been significant. Although, it could be seen as a tactical shift in the Pakistani Taliban’s strategy against Pakistan military, but never the less, the people have been rightfully protected by their saviours.

Pakistan’s Defence Minister, Naveed Qamar, has acknowledged the preparedness with which the Commandos defended the air base. It should not be taken as a security lapse, but rather as a proof of how prepared Pakistan military is round the clock. Pakistan Air Force has also released many images of the Kamra attack incident to the media as there is nothing to hide as suggested by those suspicious of Pakistan military’s ability to safeguard its people, its territory and its nukes.

آئے دن رپورٹ ہوتی ہے کہ آج ایک پاکستانی نے فلاں کارنامہ/ایجاد کر کے پاکستانیوں کا سر فخر سے بلند کر دیا۔ کئی بار مجھے لگتا ہے کہ بالکل معمولی معمولی باتوں پر ہمارے سر فخر سے بلند اور اسی طرح معمولی سی بات پر شرمندگی سے جھک بھی جاتے ہیں۔ پنجابی کی ایک کہاوت ہے کہ ”چڑی موترے تے کانگ“ یعنی چڑیا پیشاب کرے تو سیلاب۔ جب لوگ معمولی معمولی باتوں سے بڑے بڑے نتائج اخذ کرنے لگ جائیں تو وہاں یہ کہاوت بولی جاتی ہے۔ ہمارے ہاں کیا عجب تماشہ لگا ہوا ہے۔ جیسے معمولی سی بات پر ہمارا سب کچھ خطرے میں پڑ جاتا ہے بالکل ویسے ہی ”چڑی موترے“ تو ہمارے سر فخر سے بلند ہو جاتے ہیں۔ ہو سکتا آپ لوگوں کو میری ان باتوں پر غصہ آ رہا ہو لیکن کبھی ہم نے اپنے میڈیا، انقلابیوں اور ”ایجادیوں“ پر غور کیا ہے کہ انہوں نے کیا تماشہ لگا رکھا ہے؟ میڈیا کی رپورٹوں پر غور کریں تو صاف اندازہ ہوتا ہے کہ یہ سارے نہیں تو کم از کم نوے فیصد ”بلنڈر“ ضرور ہیں۔ اگر کوئی حقیقت بیان کرے تو یار لوگ کیا کہتے ہیں اس پر ایک علیحدہ تحریر ہو گی۔ فی الحال موضوع کچھ اور ہے۔

ہاں تو میں بات کر رہا تھا، میڈیا اور ایجادیوں کی۔ میڈیا اور ایجادیوں کے تماشوں کی چند مثالیں دیتا ہوں اور ساتھ میں حقیقت کیا ہے اس کی وضاحت کرنے کی کوشش بھی کرتا ہوں۔ کچھ عرصہ پہلے غالباً پچھلے رمضان (2011ء) میں ایک صاحب جیو نیوز چینل پر آئے اور اتنے دھڑلے سے جھوٹ بول رہے تھے کہ جن کو دیکھ کر شرمائیں یہود و ہنوز۔ بات قرآن پاک کے تلاش والے اردو سافٹ ویئر کی کر رہے تھے کہ یہ پہلا سافٹ ویئر ہے، اس جیسا آج تک نہیں بنا، یہ امت مسلمہ کو میری طرف سے رمضان میں تخفہ ہے۔ اگر لوگ تعاون کریں تو میں اس سے زیادہ اچھا اور احادیث کا سافٹ ویئر بھی بنا دوں گا (لنک)۔ اینکر کامران خان نے اس بات پر انہیں پتہ نہیں امت مسلمہ کا کیا کیا بنا دیا۔ حد ہو گئی یار۔ ٹھیک ہے آپ نے قرآن پاک کا سافٹ ویئر بنایا ہے۔ اچھا کام کیا ہے لیکن اتنے جھوٹ تو نہ بولو اور جنہوں نے تم سے پہلے کئی ایک زبردست سافٹ ویئر بنائے ہیں اور بغیر کسی دنیاوی لالچ کے ان کو دیوار سے تو مت لگاؤ۔ آپ کو بتاتا چلوں کہ یہ کوئی زاہد حسین نامی صاحب تھے اور ان سے پہلے کئی ایک اور ان کے سافٹ ویئر سے زیادہ معیاری سافٹ ویئر موجود ہیں، جیسے ایزی قرآن و احادیث اور نور ہدایت وغیرہ۔

آج کل ہمارے ملک کا ایک بہت بڑا مسئلہ بجلی کی لوڈ شیڈنگ ہے، گویا اس بارے میں ایک چھوٹی سی شرلی چھوڑ دو تو سارے کام ہو جاتے ہیں۔ کچھ عرصہ پہلے ایک رپورٹ دیکھی جس میں ایک صاحب ٹیوب ویل کے پانی کے بہاؤ سے بجلی بنا رہے تھے اور نتیجہ میں ایک ایل ای ڈی (LED) روشن تھی۔ صاحب فرماتے ہیں کہ اگر حکومت تعاون کرے تو میں ملک کو بجلی کے بحران سے نکال سکتا ہوں۔ او خدا کے بندے پہلے جو تربیلا اور منگلا پاور ہاؤس چل رہے ہیں وہ بھی تو اسی تکنیک پر چل رہے ہیں تو تو نے کونسا نیا تیر مارا ہے۔ ویسے بھی کئی ہارس پاور کی موٹر سے، تو ٹیوب ویل چلا رہا ہے اور پھر نتیجہ میں ایک ایل ای ڈی۔ حد ہو گئی جہالت کی۔ اس طرح کی ایل ای ڈی تو جتنی وہی ٹیوب ویل والی موٹر حرارت چھوڑ رہی ہے، اس سے جلائی جا سکتی ہے۔ ویسے بھی پانی کے بہاؤ کی حرکی توانائی سے بجلی بنانے کے ایک ہزار ایک طریقے دنیا میں رائج ہیں تو پھر تو نے کونسی نئی تکنیک ایجاد کی جس وجہ سے تو اتنا اترا رہا ہے۔ کبھی کبھی سوچتا ہوں کہ میں بھی اپنے ٹیوب ویل پر ایسا ”پروجیکٹ“ تیار کروں بلکہ ہمارے پاس تو اتنا بڑا دریائے چناب ہے۔ سو دو سو روپے کا ایل ای ڈی چلانے والا چھوٹا سا جنریٹر مل جائے گا، بس پھر پانی سے اسے گھماؤ گا اور مشہور ہو جاؤں گا، لیکن مسئلہ یہ ہے کہ میڈیا پر آنے کے لئے ایک کنال زمین بھیجنی پڑے گی کیونکہ میرے پاس نہ تو کوئی سفارش ہے اور نہ ہی اتنے پیسے۔

ایک رپورٹ میں تھا کہ ایک صاحب نے جدید قسم کا جنریٹر تیار کر دیا۔ وہ صاحب کر یوں رہے تھے کہ انہوں نے گاڑی کی ڈِگی میں ایک بیٹری رکھی ہوئی تھی اور اسے گاڑی کے جنریٹر سے چارج کر رہے تھے۔ پھر اس بیٹری کے آگے انورٹر لگا کر پنکھا چلا رہے تھے۔ کر لو گل! ہو گیا جدید قسم کا جنریٹر تیار۔ یہ رپورٹ دیکھ کر میرا دل کر رہا تھا کہ زور زور سے چیخیں ماروں، اپنے میڈیا کی جہالت پر ماتم کروں اور میڈیا والوں کو کہوں کہ خدا کا خوف کرو، پہلے ہی دنیا میں ہماری بڑی بے عزتی ہو رہی ہے اب اس انداز سے تو نہ کرواؤ۔ اگر یہ رپورٹ کسی دوسرے ملک کے اردو سمجھنے والے، تھوڑے سے تکنیکی بندے نے دیکھ لی تو وہ ہر فورم پر ہماری جہالت پر ہنسے گا، کیونکہ ایسے کام اب بچوں کا کھیل ہیں اور تم اسے ”جدید قسم کا انوکھا جنریٹر“ کہہ رہے ہو۔

پچھلے دنوں ایک صاحب کا بہت چرچا ہوا جن کے دے انٹرویو پر انٹرویو اور رپورٹوں پر رپورٹیں کہ جناب نے پانی سے گاڑی چلائی ہے۔ میں اور میرے دوست غلام عباس نے سوچا ہو سکتا ہے کہ اس نے پانی میں سے آکسیجن اور ہائیڈروجن علیحدہ علیحدہ کرنے کا کوئی نیا اور زبردست طریقہ ایجاد کر لیا ہو۔ خیر ہم اس بندے کو ملنے گئے۔ سارا دن کی کھجل خرابی کے بعد اس کے گاؤں پہنچے۔ کھودا پہاڑ اور نکلا چوہا۔ کوئی پانی سے گاڑی نہیں چل رہی تھی بلکہ وہی انیسویں صدی والی تکنیک استعمال کر کے بالکل معمولی سی ہائیڈروجن حاصل کی جا رہی تھی جو پٹرول کے ساتھ ملا کر جلائی جا رہی تھی تاکہ انجن کی تھوڑی طاقت زیادہ ہو جائے۔ اب پتہ نہیں طاقت زیادہ ہوئی بھی تھی یا نہیں لیکن پانی سے انجن/گاڑی چلانے والا سیدھا سیدھا جھوٹ تھا۔ مجھے یہ تو معلوم نہیں کہ میڈیا نے اس کی اتنی جھوٹی تشہیر کیوں کی لیکن اس بندے سے مل کر ایک بات واضح ہوئی کہ وہ بندہ بذاتِ خود بہت اچھا تھا، درد دل رکھنے والا انسان ہے اور پاکستان کے لئے کچھ کرنا چاہتا ہے۔ اس نے خود میڈیا کے بارے میں کہا کہ انہوں نے ہمیں بہت تنگ کیا ہے۔ باقی اس نے خود مانا کہ پانی سے گاڑی نہیں چلائی جا رہی بلکہ مجھے انجن کی تھوڑی زیادہ طاقت چاہئے تھی تو میں نے اس کے لئے ہائیڈروجن والا طریقہ سوچا۔ مگر ہمارے میڈیا نے تو وہ گاڑی سو فیصد پانی سے چلوا دی تھی۔

پچھلے دنوں ایک اور شور مچا ہوا تھا کہ سوات کے نوجوان نے پانی سے جنریٹر چلا کر بجلی بنا دی۔ جس میں کہا گیا کہ اس نے پانی سے انجن چلایا اور پھر اس انجن سے بجلی بنانے والی ڈینمو گھمائی۔ اب ایک اور شوشا بڑے عروج پر ہے، اس بار تو حد ہی ہو گئی۔ وزیراور بڑے بڑے اینکر اور تو اور کئی اہم شخصیات جیسے ڈاکٹر عبدالقدیر خان اور پاکستان کونسل آف سائنٹیفک اینڈ انڈسٹریل ریسرچ (PCSIR) کے چیرمین ڈاکٹر شوکت پرویز بھی اس کھیل میں اس ”شوشے“ کے حق میں کود چکے ہیں جبکہ ڈاکٹر عطاء الرحمٰن فی الحال اس ”ایجاد“ کو کچھ اس طرح نہیں مان رہے کہ ان کا خیال ہے کہ ایک تو اس کی اچھی طرح جانچ ہونی چاہئے اور دوسرا یہ کہ اس طرح پانی سے گاڑی چلنا ناممکن ہے کیونکہ یہ سائنس کے بنیادی اصول توانائی کی ایک حالت سے دوسری میں تبدیلی اور تھرموڈائنامکس کے پہلے قانون کے خلاف ہے۔

پانی سے گاڑی چلانے والے بندے آغا وقار کا کہنا ہے کہ بس اس کی بنائی ہوئی ”واٹر کِٹ“ میں صرف خالص پانی ڈالتے جاؤ تو گاڑی چلتی رہے گی۔

میں سائنس کا کوئی ”راکٹ سائنس“ طالب علم نہیں مگر حیران ہوتا ہوں کہ ایسی معمولی باتیں میں جانتا ہوں تو ان ”وڈے“ لوگوں کو کیا نہیں پتہ، یا کہیں ایسا تو نہیں کہ ”سب مایا ہے“ کیونکہ یہ جو پانی سے انجن چل رہے ہیں اس طریقے کی تفصیل تو میڑک کا طالب علم بھی آسانی سے سمجھ سکتا ہے۔

خیر آپ کو اس کی تھوڑی سی حقیقت بتانے کی کوشش کرتا ہوں۔

پانی سے انجن چلانے کے لئے فی الحال صرف ایک طریقہ ہے کہ پانی کی برق پاشیدگی (Electrolysis) کی جائے اور اس میں سے ہائیڈروجن حاصل کر کے اسے ایندھن کی جگہ انجن میں جلایا جائے یا پھر کسی اور طریقے سے اسی ہائیڈروجن کو استعمال میں لایا جائے۔ اس میں کوئی شک نہیں پانی سے ہائیڈروجن حاصل کر کے اس سے انجن چلایا جا سکتا ہے اور ہمارے ”ایجادیئے“ ایسا ہی کر رہے ہیں، مگر سوچنے والی بات یہ ہے کہ پانی سے ہائیڈروجن حاصل کرنے پر کتنی توانائی لگے گی اور نتیجہ میں ہمیں کتنی توانائی ملے گی؟ ہائیڈروجن حاصل کرنے پر جتنی لاگت آئے گی کیا موجودہ ایندھن جیسے ڈیزل اور پٹرول وغیرہ سے سستی ہو گی؟

اس طریقے میں سب سے پہلا مرحلہ ہے پانی کی برق پاشیدگی۔ توانائی کے سائنسی اصولوں کے مطابق اگر سب کچھ آئیڈیل ہو تو پانی کی برق پاشیدگی پر جتنی توانائی خرچ ہو گی، پانی سے حاصل ہونے والی ہائیڈروجن آگسیجن کے ساتھ جل کر اتنی ہی توانائی دے گی۔ عام طور پر پانی کی پاشیدگی کے لئے بجلی کا استعمال ہوتا ہے۔

پہلی بات تو یہ کہ دنیا میں فی الحال ایسے آئیڈیل حالات تیار نہیں ہوئے لہٰذا جتنی توانائی برق پاشیدگی پر لگے گی اس کا کچھ حصہ حرارتی اور دیگر توانائی کی اقسام میں تبدیل ہو جائے گا اور یوں حاصل ہونے والی ہائیڈروجن جتنی توانائی دے گی اس سے زیادہ توانائی برق پاشیدگی اور دیگر کاموں پر پہلے ہی لگ چکی ہو گی۔ دوسری بات یہ کہ فرض کریں کسی نے کوئی آئیڈیل حالات بنا بھی لئے ہوں (جوکہ کم از کم زمین پر فی الحال ناممکن کے قریب تصور کیا جاتا ہے) تو پھر بھی جتنی توانائی پانی کی برق پاشیدگی پر لگاؤ گے نتیجہ میں اتنی ہی توانائی ہائیڈروجن کو جلا کر حاصل ہو گی۔ اب آپ ہائیڈروجن سے انجن چلا کر اس سے گاڑی کا پہیہ گھماؤ یا پھر بجلی بنانے والی ڈینمو، یہ آپ کی مرضی مگر پانی کو توڑنے (پاشیدگی) پر جتنی توانائی لگا رہے ہو اتنی ہی توانائی حاصل کر پاؤ گے۔

اب جیسے پاشیدگی کے لئے بجلی کا استعمال ہوتا ہے تو اگر سب کچھ آئیڈیل ہو تو پھر برق پاشیدگی سے حاصل ہونے والی ہائیڈروجن کو استعمال کرتے ہوئے ہم اتنی ہی بجلی بنا پائیں گے جتنی کہ برق پاشیدگی پر لگائی تھی۔ قابل غور بات یہ ہے کہ جتنی بجلی لگائی، اتنی ہی حاصل ہوئی۔ اسی طرح اگر ہم انجن چلانے کے لئے پانی کی پاشیدگی پر جتنی بجلی لگاتے ہیں اگر اتنی ہی بجلی سے موٹر چلائیں تو وہ بھی انجن جتنا ہی کام کرے گی۔

پانی سے ہائیڈروجن حاصل کر کے انجن تو چل گیا مگر ہائیڈروجن حاصل کرنے پر جو بجلی لگائی ہے وہ کہاں سے آئے گی؟ اس بجلی کی جتنی قیمت ہو گی کیا اس سے سستی ہائیڈروجن ویسے ہی مارکیٹ سے نہیں مل جائے گی؟ کیا ہائیڈروجن کی ٹرانسپورٹ موجودہ ایندھن (پٹرول اور ڈیزل) جتنی آسان ہو گی؟ کیا ہائیڈروجن سے سستا ایندھن پہلے موجود نہیں؟

جب ہم ان سوالوں کے جواب ڈھونڈنے نکلتے ہیں تو پتہ چلتا ہے کہ پانی کی برق پاشیدگی کرنے والے طریقے پر موجودہ ایندھن کی نسبت زیادہ خرچ آتا ہے اور اس طریقے سے سستے اور آسان طریقے پہلے ہی دنیا میں رائج ہیں۔ عام لوگ بس یہی دیکھتے ہیں کہ لو جی پانی سے انجن/گاڑی چل گئی مگر کوئی یہ نہیں دیکھتا کہ پانی کو کن کن مراحل سے گزارا گیا ہے اور اس پر خرچہ کتنا آیا ہے۔ آج کل جو بندہ آغا وقار بڑا مشہور ہوا ہے میرا اس بندے سے سوال ہے کہ
پانی کی برق پاشیدگی پر جو بجلی لگ رہی ہے وہ کہاں سے آئے گی؟
جواب:- گاڑی میں موجود بیٹری سے۔
گاڑی کی بیٹری کیسے چارج ہو گی؟
گاڑی کے جنریٹر سے۔
جنریٹر کیسے گھومے گا؟
گاڑی کے انجن سے۔
انجن کیسے چلے گا؟
ہائیڈروجن سے۔
ہائیڈروجن کہا سے آئے گی؟
پانی کی برق پاشیدگی سے۔
پانی کی برق پاشیدگی کیسے ہو گی؟
بجلی سے۔
بجلی کہاں سے آئے گی؟
گاڑی کی بیٹری سے۔
افف ف ف ف ف ف ف۔۔۔ یا میرے خدا ہم پر رحم کر۔
آپ سوچ رہے ہوں گے کہ میں نے خود ہی سوال کیے اور خود ہی جواب لکھ دیئے۔ مگر ایسا نہیں سوال میرے ہیں جبکہ جواب آغا وقار کے ہی ہیں کیونکہ وہ یہ جواب مختلف پروگراموں میں دے چکا ہے۔ خیر آغا وقار کے بنائے ہوئے نظام میں صرف ہمیں پانی ڈالنا ہے۔ بس پھر گاڑی کی بیٹری سے پانی کی برق پاشیدگی ہو گی اور پھر عمل چالو ہو جائے گا یعنی ایک چکر چل پڑے گا جس میں صرف پانی ڈالتے جاؤ۔ یقین کرو اگر واقعی ایسا ہوا تو پوری دنیا بدل جائے گی اور اس طریقے سے دنیا بدلنے کی کوشش سو دو سو سال پہلے ہی سیانے لوگ کر کے تھک ہار چکے مگر آغا وقار :-)

یارو! تیاری پکڑو! بس اب اس بندے آغا وقار کے حق میں بولنے یعنی اس کی ”ایجاد“ کو ماننے والے یعنی سب سے پہلے ہمارا میڈیا اور پھر ڈاکٹر عبدالقدیر خان، ڈاکٹر شوکت پرویز اور کئی وڈے لوگوں کی واٹ لگنے والی ہے کیونکہ انہوں نے آن دی ریکارڈ سب کچھ کہا ہے :-) یا پھر سائنس ایک بہت اہم موڑ پر پہنچ چکی ہے اور ایسا ”یوٹرن“ لے گی کہ ساری کائنات ”ٹرنوٹرن“ ہو جائے گی۔ آج کی فزکس منہ کے بل گرے گی۔ فزکس کے تمام نوبل انعام آغاوقار کو مل جائیں گے اور یہ دنیا کا سب سے بڑا سائنسدان کہلائے گا۔ یورپ، امریکہ اور ساری دنیا پاکستان کی مقروض ہو جائے گی۔ شاید آپ کو یہ باتیں مذاق لگ رہی ہوں مگر جناب اگر آغا وقار کے طریقے سے گاڑی چل گئی اور صرف پانی سے چلتی رہی تو پھر واقعی یہ دنیا کی عظیم ترین ایجاد میں سے ایک ہو گی اور اس سے واقعی دنیا بدل جائے گی۔ (دیوانے کا خواب)

خیر میں تو کہتا ہوں کہ اس بندے آغا وقار کو سخت سے سخت سیکیورٹی میں رکھا جائے کیونکہ اگر اسے کچھ ہو گیا تو لوگوں نے کہنا ہے کہ دیکھا ایک ”عظیم سائنسدان“ کو مروا دیا گیا ہے۔ خیر اس کے بنائے ہوئے نظام کی مکمل جانچ کی جائے اور فراڈ ہونے کی صورت میں اس کی بجائے ہمارے میڈیا کو الٹا لٹکا کر لتر مارنے چاہئے جو بغیر تحقیق کے باتیں کرتے پھرتے ہیں اور اس جیسے بندے کو اتنا منہ زور کر دیتے ہیں کہ وہ اچھے بھلے ڈاکٹر عطاء الرحمن کی بے عزتی کرتا پھرتا ہے۔ اور اگر یہ واقعی سچ ہوا تو پھر لات مارو پوری فزکس کو اپنی نئی فزکس تیار کرو۔ مجھے پورا یقین ہے کہ ایک عام پاکستانی اس بات پر بڑا جذباتی ہو رہا ہے کہ دیکھو ایک پاکستانی سے کتنی بڑی ایجاد کر دی۔ اے میرے پاکستانی بھائیو! خدارا کچھ ہوش کے ناخن لو۔ ہر چیز کو جذبات کے آئینے سے نہ دیکھا کرو بلکہ حقیقت کو پہچانو۔

دنیا میں بہت کچھ نیا ہوا ہے۔ سائنس نے کئی جگہوں پر یوٹرن لیا ہے۔ مگر یہ بندہ آغا وقار جو دعوہ کر رہا ہے اس پر میرا ذاتی خیال پوچھو تو میں اس طرح پانی سے گاڑی چلنے والی بات کو نہیں مانتا کیونکہ میری تحقیق کہتی ہے کہ ایسا نہیں ہو سکتا، یاد رہے پانی سے گاڑی چل سکتی ہے مگر اس پر خرچہ ڈیزل یا پٹرول سے زیادہ آتا ہے۔ باقی پھر کہوں گا کہ میں سائنس کا کوئی ”راکٹ سائنس“ طالب علم نہیں اس لئے میں غلط بھی ہو سکتا ہوں۔ اجی میں کیا ہوں، اب تو جو صورت حال بن چکی ہے وہاں تو اچھے اچھوں کی واٹ لگنے والی ہے۔ مگر شرط ہے کہ آپ لوگ نہ بھولیے گا۔

میرا مقصد مایوسی پھیلانا یا اپنے پیارے پاکستانیوں کے کارناموں کو غلط ثابت کرنا نہیں، بس یہ کہتا ہوں، اللہ کا واسطہ ہے کہ پہلے کوئی کارنامہ کرو تو سہی۔ ”ایجادی“ کی بجائے موجد بنو۔ جاہل میڈیا کے بل پر عام عوام کو جاہل نہ بناؤ۔ ”کارنامے“ بلکہ میں تو انہیں کرتوت کہوں گا، کرتوت ایسے ہیں کہ جن پر سینہ چوڑا کرنا تو دور کسی کو بتاتے ہوئے بھی شرم آتی ہے۔

دعا ہے کہ اللہ تعالیٰ ہم پاکستانیوں کو عقل دے اور ہم حقیقی معنوں میں کچھ ایجاد کر دنیا کو حیران کر دیں اور اپنے ملک کو ترقی دیں۔۔۔آمین
