Mutual existence can only prevail through mutual acceptance which includes acceptance of each other as realities , acceptance of commonalities and acceptance of disputes which need to be resolved on the principles of justice and equality.
Yesterday’s incident (Benazir’s Assassination) and the violence afterwards have really left many things to ponder upon for each and every patriotic Pakistani.
“And obey the order of Allah (S.W.T) and of His Messenger (SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam) and do not quarrel together lest you will loose heart and your united strength may depart from you and be patient (in adversity) indeed Allah (S.W.T) is with the patient.” (8; 46) Al-Quran.
It’s a high time for us to think as a true Islamic nation and a true Pakistani for the sake of peace and prosperity of the country and the Ummah. In the current state of play our leadership (Government , Semi-Government, Opposition, Semi-Opposition) should think for a way out of this national crisis for this we need to think as an honest,just,freedom loving and one nation and try to solve our problems by ourselves (the best friend we can have in an hour of crisis is Our Allah and US not USA or UN) .
And our government specially should think it’s strategy on so called “War On Terror” and our role as “Front Line State” (This has become a “War Of Terror” lead by a fascist leader Bush implementing his evil agenda and we are falling into the trap his policy makers have set for us).
Janib e manzil barha rastai mein hi bhatak gaia
Kuch dhundh thi chai hoi kuch mein rasta bhool gaia
Dhundh chatnai ka intazar karoon
Yeh is ghari ka taqaza nahi
Roshni Milnai ka intazar karoon
Yeh waqt merai paas nahi
Bhooli hoi rah khud mil jai
Yeh mumkin nahi hargiz nahi
Ab raasta bhi khud hai dhoondna
Manzil ki talash khud hai karni
InshaAllah Phir roshni bhi aaigi
Aur manzil bhi Khuda Daiga
We just need to take an initiative to the right path and InshaAllah the success will come
“And remember when you were few and were reckoned weak in the Land, and were afraid that men might kidnap you but He (the Most High) provided a safe place for you, strengthened you with His help and provided you with good things so that you might be grateful” (8; 26) Al-Quran.
Crisis are tests for nations and great nations face the crisis boldly and wisely. Killing people (who have nothing to do with the incident) and burning schools, hospitals, buses, cars, shops etc will not neither help any good cause nor it will bring back the departed soul but these things will fuel more fire of hatred.
May Allah be our guide.
