We should support our team: By Dr. Mohsin Ansari

In pakistan on March 31, 2011 at 7:41 pm

Today every Pakistani whether living in Pakistan or living abroad is extremely dejected and disturbed.  Of course this feels like a huge anticlimax after a cricket fever which lasted for more than a month.

But we as a nation should remember that this is an important and critical time for our cricket team. During these times of extreme emotions, we need to remember some very important facts. Shahid Afridi and his team took Pakistan to a world cup semi final after 12 long years.

We had great fast bowlers like Waseem, Waqar, Shoaib and the most talented batsman including Inzimam, Yusuf and Saeed Anwar in these 12 years, but yet this team achieved which these super heroes were not able to accomplish. Secondly do not forget that the whole world including ICC, Indian board and IPL tried to marginalize our team by not inviting our players to some key tournaments.

The most unfortunate incident was the departure of the three most talented cricketers from the Pakistan team just couple of months before the world Cup.

All these disadvantages were coupled by the drawback of not been able to play any cricket in the home country and having the most non professional and disgusting cricket board.

Taking into consideration all these odds and mishaps, Pakistan started this world Cup as under dogs and probably the least favorite team to win the world cup.

On the contrary what Pakistan achieved is in abundance to make Pakistanis not only proud of their team but also hopeful for a fantastic future of this predominantly young team.

First Pakistan won the series in New Zealand for the first time then continued the good work in the world cup. They not only attained the top position in their group but were also able to beat the top teams of the world including Australia, Sri Lanka and West indies with a touch of class and excellence.

Although it does feel like that but surely, losing semi finals is not the end of the world. I see a successful Pakistan, If as a nation we can show the same zeal and enthusiasm (which we showed in last few weeks for cricket) towards spreading the education and eliminating injustice and corruption from the society, and bringing our nation back towards the obedience of our Creator our Lord Allah SWT

Pakistan – India Semifinal – A perspective

In Clsh of Civilizations, pakistan, Pakistan History, Pakistan's Ideology on March 27, 2011 at 1:27 pm

By Dr Mohsin Ansari

Pakistan vs. India in world cup semifinal is expected to be a nail biting and a great contest. But a word of caution for all the friends, we should not take this game as a “Battle between Kufr and Islam nor a war between Haqq and Ba’ttil”.

Yes, it will be very intriguing, emotional and anxiety provoking. But do remember, after all it is a game and should be dealt as a sporting event.

India has the best team they ever had in their one day history and Pakistan has several players who can change the complexion of the game in a blink of an eye. And more importantly Pakistan has the blessings and prayers of millions of die hard Pakistani spectators. May Allah help Pakistan and its people to be successful in this world and the Hereafter (Ameen)

Though there are indeed many other critical and important open fronts with India, where we do need to be vigilant and alarmed and get our Eeman and faith involved. On one side the state terrorism and unimaginable atrocities committed by Indian soldiers in Kashmir. And on the other side is India and its MADR PDER AZAA”D culture that has already made strong inroads and successes in our personal, family and collective life as a nation.

Regrettably India and its non Islamic and Eeman destructive culture is part of every single bedroom and every single living room of Pakistani society now. One will hardly find a wedding without the Indian traditions of mehandi and the dance/music package bundled with it, similarly it is a common practice to see Pakistani kids being named after Indian movie stars, and many in Pakistan cannot even imagine having spring fun without celebrating the “Bassant”.

So much so that current and former Presidents of Pakistan admitted on national media that they are fans of Indian movies, Indian songs and obviously the indecent, obscene and vulgar culture associated with these activities! This in essence is the battle between Kufr and Islam” and a war between Haqq and Ba”ttil. Unfortunately a combat which is long lost and more ill-fated is the fact it happened without us even realizing that we are on the losing side!!

March 23, 1940: Pakistan Resolution

In pakistan, Pakistan History, Pakistan's Ideology on March 22, 2011 at 6:31 am

From March 22 to March 24, 1940, the All India Muslim League held its annual session at Minto Park, Lahore. This session proved to be historical.

On the first day of the session, Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah narrated the events of the last few months. In an extempore speech he presented his own solution of the Muslim problem. He said that the problem of India was not of an inter-communal nature, but manifestly an international one and must be treated as such. To him the differences between Hindus and the Muslims were so great and so sharp that their union under one central government was full of serious risks. They belonged to two separate and distinct nations and therefore the only chance open was to allow them to have separate states.

Minar-i-Pakistan, Lahore, the landmark where the historic Pakistan Resolution was passed 

In the words of Quaid-i-Azam: “Hindus and the Muslims belong to two different religions, philosophies, social customs and literature. They neither inter-marry nor inter-dine and, indeed, they belong to two different civilizations that are based mainly on conflicting ideas and conceptions. Their concepts on life and of life are different. It is quite clear that Hindus and Muslims derive their inspiration from different sources of history. They have different epics, different heroes and different episodes. Very often the hero of one is a foe of the other, and likewise, their victories and defeats overlap. To yoke together two such nations under a single state, one as a numerical minority and the other as a majority, must lead to growing discontent and final destruction of any fabric that may be so built up for the government of such a state”.

At the All India Muslim League Working Committee, Lahore session, March 1940 

He further said, “Mussalmans are a nation according to any definition of nation. We wish our people to develop to the fullest spiritual, cultural, economic, social and political life in a way that we think best and in consonance with our own ideals and according to the genius of our people”.

On the basis of the above mentioned ideas of the Quaid, A. K. Fazl-ul-Haq, the then Chief Minister of Bengal, moved the historical resolution which has since come to be known as Lahore Resolution or Pakistan Resolution.

At the All India Muslim League session, March 1940, Nawab Sir Shah Nawaz Mamdot presenting address of welcome 

The Resolution declared: “No constitutional plan would be workable or acceptable to the Muslims unless geographical contiguous units are demarcated into regions which should be so constituted with such territorial readjustments as may be necessary. That the areas in which the Muslims are numerically in majority as in the North-Western and Eastern zones of India should be grouped to constitute independent states in which the constituent units shall be autonomous and sovereign”.

Quaid-i-Azam is presiding over the session while Chaudhry Khaliquzzaman is seconding the Resolution 

It further reads, “That adequate, effective and mandatory safeguards shall be specifically provided in the constitution for minorities in the units and in the regions for the protection of their religious, cultural, economic, political, administrative and other rights of the minorities, with their consultation. Arrangements thus should be made for the security of Muslims where they were in a minority”.

Quaid-i-Azam, Liaquat Ali Khan and Nawab Muhammad Iftikhar Hussain Khan of Mamdot at the Lahore Session, March 1940 

The Resolution repudiated the concept of United India and recommended the creation of an independent Muslim state consisting of Punjab, N. W. F. P., Sindh and Baluchistan in the northwest, and Bengal and Assam in the northeast. The Resolution was seconded by Maulana Zafar Ali Khan from Punjab, Sardar Aurangzeb from the N. W. F. P., Sir Abdullah Haroon from Sindh, and Qazi Esa from Baluchistan, along with many others.

The Resolution was passed on March 24. It laid down only the principles, with the details left to be worked out at a future date. It was made a part of the All India Muslim League’s constitution in 1941. It was on the basis of this resolution that in 1946 the Muslim League decided to go for one state for the Muslims, instead of two.

Having passed the Pakistan Resolution, the Muslims of India changed their ultimate goal. Instead of seeking alliance with the Hindu community, they set out on a path whose destination was a separate homeland for the Muslims of India.
