It’s been more than 10 months since the dictator Musharraf destroyed the most important institution of judiciary using the state military power, supported well by the USA and other foreign powers not willing to give the Pakistani nation the right to live freely under the rule of law.
This Eid I know like all other Eids will bring happiness for muslims all over the world since they have gone through a month of blessings and prayers but with all due joys and festivities we must not forget the people who have suffered and still are suffering from the unjust policies of the governments run by dictators,feudals and corrupt mullahs, we must not forget people who have lost their loved ones in this “War Against Humanity”(so called war against terror) from both sides, we must not forget people who lost their right to exist and live freely and thus termed as missing persons(Recent example is Dr Aaafia and her children , one of them is recovered but God knows where are the other two and still Aafia is in US custody facing false charges and inhuman treatment), we must not forget the people who are displaced due to the fight going on in Bajur,Waziristan etc, we must not forget the people of Baluchistan who suffered during the times of the tyrant (Musharraf), we must not forget the poorsof our country who suffered most due to corruption and trickle down economy policy by Musharraf and Shaukat Aziz and still facing the sufferings because the current government is no different they are just he continuation of the previous one interms of policy, we must not forget the cause of justice and independence judiciary in Pakistan and above all we must not forget who we are(Pakistanis) and what it means?
By not forgetting I mean to help the people who suffered and still suffering by any means you can (Actions or Words or Even Prayers).
In all our happiness and festivities we must not forget the lesson which Allama Iqbal taught us:
MEIN TUM KO BATA HOON TAQDEER E UMAM KIA HAI
SHAMSHEER O SANA AWWAL TAOOS O RUBAB AAKHIR
May Allah give us light and keep our hopes alive and make us more committed for the great cause and ultimate dream.
Eid Mubarak In Advance.
