The relation between Pakistan and us, is the name of summing up all love, responsibilities and duties that we owe to our mother land. Therefore we need to look into our conscience to examine our accountability that we owe to this sacred land and let us analyse at what level of sincerity are we with our mother land.
To begin this, we shall look into our tough past full of hardships, when this land had been possible to be established by the sacrifice of 50+ lac Shuhadaa.
We see many weak Muslim families, who plead before the merciless Hindu shopkeeper out of sheer helplessness. They even become willing to give their valuable lands just for the sake of the marriages of their daughters or merely for their survival, being in need of a few pennies. We even see clearly those labourers, gardeners and clerks, forced to own the lowest grade professions, poisoned by poverty just because they happen to be Muslims. The societal plight of Muslims with their crushed identity, makes the blood boil.
We see a typical hindu grumbling in severe anger which distorts his face. On hearing carefully, we come to know that this grumbling is because a Muslim’s shadow had fallen upon this typical Hindu and now to purify his self, he needs to do ‘ashnan’.
In the atmosphere of sheer hatred and bias, under heavy ideological and financial pressure, the horrifying plight, hunger, poverty, lack of resources and lack of opportunities, an English historian “William Hunter” in his book, “Over Indian Musalmans” describing the critical situation of Muslims writes, “ Muslims wrote a collective application to Areesa’s Commissioner that due to poverty and hunger our condition is worse, so much that if you intend to send us to the deserts of Siberia or the snow covered peaks of mountains of Himalayas to earn a few pennies, we are willing!”
The bitter realities of our past have stirred a concentrated amount of guilt and embarrassment due to our present day’s conditions. In the atmosphere of hopelessness, it reveals on us, that from 1937 to 1947, the biased All India National Congress has passed a bill under which, the entire population has been bound to sing the ugly anthem of “bande matram” . More over the part of this anthem, “Muslims are cruel, kill them wherever you find them” was a must read for every Muslim. Height of hatred and disgrace!
Later at the time of independence, the history is witness, how brutally the Muslims had been massacred. The Muslim daughters were found slaughtered in the wells while the entire trains were buttered. Simultaneously Muslims of many areas, including Aiman-a-bad used to give refuge to the daughter of hindus.
We went through our bitter, past comprising of sheer hardships. We achieved the piece of this sacred land at the cost of several sacrifices of our ancestors. In this land lie our, honour, dignity, peace, all beautiful colours, our joys, our assets. This land is the gift of valour, bravery and honour of our glorious ancestors. It’s our refuge, our home and the home for our coming generations.
The question is, how strong have we built the walls of our shelter? The building of Pakistan stands on the pillars of Islam. Islam teaches us Unity, brotherhood and fraternity. Lets not weaken the basis of our home and hold the rope of Islam firm so that we can be sure about the firmness of our roots deep in the ground which will automatically wave the green flag high up in the air, hoisted at the top of this sacred building.
