Pakistan As Bulwark Of Islam

In Pakistan's Ideology on June 29, 2010 at 6:41 am

The speeches of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah from August 1947 till his death, repeatedly advocated Muslim Ideology for Pakistan, he persistently stressed Islamic social justice, equality, brotherhood, Islamic ideals and principles and the onward march of renaissance of Islamic culture.

It is clear from the following excerpt of his speech delivered in the Constituent Assembly on 11 August 1947 that Baba-e-Quam sketched the picture of Pakistan as a true Islamic society in which absolute generous religious freedom would be granted to every minority of the society, and where the state would not differentiate on the basis of caste or creed.

“You are free, free to go to your temples; you are free to go to your mosques or to any other places of worship in this state of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed – that has nothing to do with the business of the State,”

During his speech at the inauguration ceremony of the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan on 14 August 1947, Quaid-e-Azam marvelously ascribed pure Islam in response of Lord Mountbatten’s address in which he prayed for the betterment of the world and hoped to fulfill the principles of Akbar the Great:

The tolerance and good will that great Emperor showed to all the non-Muslims is not of recent origins. It dates back thirteen centuries ago when our Prophet (peace be upon him) not only by words but by deeds treated the Jews and Christians, after he had conquered them, with the utmost tolerance and regard and respect for their faith and beliefs. The whole history of Muslims wherever they ruled, is replete with those human and great principles which should be followed and practiced.’

The Father of the nation wanted to build Pakistan as bulwark of Islam, he emphasized that we should lead our lives according to Islam’s glorious traditions and Holy Quran should remain our motivating force for our future successes:

“If we take our inspiration and guidance from the Holy Quran, the final victory, I once again say, will be ours”. (30 October 1947)

Similarly visionary Muhammad Ali Jinnah formulated the economic dimensions of Pakistan. In the inaugural ceremony of State Bank of Pakistan on 1 July 1948 he said:

“The adoption of western economic theory and practice will not help us in achieving our goal.”

By adding:

“We must present to the world an economic system based on true Islamic concepts.”

Above mentioned very few excerpts from his many addresses explain and reflect the vision and ideology of Quaid-e-Azam and what he vitally wanted for Pakistan as a sovereign state.

All those who are trying to manipulate his guidelines and are crying for “Secular Jinnah and his Secular Pakistan” and “Secular Pakistan is the only solution for today’s problems”, off repeated intuitions propagated by many so called farsighted and open-minded intellectuals and writers who are in reality shortsighted and closed-minded, should vigilantly study why Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah gave major portion of his life to the cause of Sub-Continent’s Muslims plus what he said about himself:

“What ever I have done, I did as a servant of Islam and only tried to perform my duty and made every possible contribution within my power to help our nation.” (Quaid-e-Azam-17 August 1948)

  2. AN URGENT REQUEST TO MODERATORS OF THIS BLOG.

    DEAR MODERATORS OF THIS BLOG:
    Moderators of Pak Tea House has blocked my IP address. So, i can not post my comments there.IT WILL BE A GREAT PIECE OF INFORMATION AND EDUCATION FOR QADIANIS AND THEIR SUPPORTER MODERATORS OF PTH.
    In articlele by Raza Raja: Can You Declare anyone as non-Muslim Through a legislation?
    Please post my following comment:
    According to Book Kalimat-ul-Fasal’ by Mirza Bashir Ahmad (aka “Qamar-ul-Anbiyya”):

    Mirza Bashir Ahmad replies to another question under the same objection about relations with other Muslims:

    “The objection arises here as to why the marriage of a woman who is an Ahmadi is not dissolved if her husband is a non-Ahmadi, or why is the inheritance of a deceased Ahmadi allowed to his non-Ahmadi son when a kafir is not allowed to inherit from a Muslim.” (p. 170)

    In his reply he tells us that there are two kinds of commandments in Islam: those to be carried out by the individual and those that can only be carried out by the government or the law of the land. Then he writes:

    “As matters of inheritance and dissolution of marriage fall under the law of the government, this is why the Promised Messiah wrote nothing about these. If he had possessed governmental power, he would have issued the same orders in these matters as well.” (p. 170)

    Just ponder over this last statement! It is declaring, openly and bluntly, that if the Head of the Qadiani Jama‘at were to have the power to make laws in a country he would issue orders to the effect that non-Ahmadis should be treated as non-Muslims under the law of the land. So on what grounds can the Qadiani Jama‘at complain when they themselves are declared as non-Muslims under the law of the land in Pakistan?

    All these extreme beliefs came back to haunt the Qadiani Jama‘at with a vengeance. They were declared non-Muslim in the law of the land by a government of non-Ahmadis in Pakistan in 1974 in exactly the same way as Mirza Bashir Ahmad has here proclaimed that his Jama‘at would do to non-Ahmadis if it should possess political power.
