There are many Pakistanis, faithful to
Jinnah's declaration of 11th August 1947, who stand for a secular
democratic Pakistan.... but are perturbed by this frightful
analysis by one of your articles.
Regards and best wishes...

That is very unfortunate. It is always difficult to
get over our child brainwashing and indoctrination. As Pakistan will keep
falling deeper and deeper in poverty, these faithful followers of Jinnah
will eventually have to realize that the problem with Pakistan is
precisely its Islamic identity and they will have no one to blame other
than Jinnah. If it werenít for this manís dream of becoming the father
of a new country using Islam as the pretext when he himself was not a real
believer, why would Pakistan even exist? Doesn't the very fact that a
man who claimed to be a secularist said Muslims can't live with Hindus
prove that he was a hypocrite? If he was truly a secularist would he have
played the religious card? If Pakistan did not exist, neither
the Pakistanis nor the Indians needed to expend so much on defense.
Together, the great India (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh) would have been
much more stronger, much more prosperous and without Islam, much more
civilized. The billions of dollars spent on bombs and wars would have gone
to education, infrastructure, hospitals and to improve their lives. Your
salvation will come only when you see yourself as an Indian and not as a
My advice to you is: divest yourself and your country
of the Islamic identity and try to reunite with your Indian brothers.
Reclaim your ancestral identity that Islam has vilified and taken it away
from you. You are an Indian, just as I am a Persian. We are not Muslim
brothers. We are Human brothers and part of the human family of Mankind.
Be proud of who you are. Be proud of your ancestral heritage. Get rid of
your Islamic slavery that has brought you nothing but hatred and miseries.
Be a Human first -- a Human first.
|Let me remind you that one of the admirers of M.A. Jinnah is
none other than the great Pakistani refusenik, Ibne-Warraq...
Well and I am an admirer of Ibn Warraq but I do not have to agree with him
|It is because Jinnah represented all those values that many on
this website want Muslims to adopt...
I doubt it.
We want to bring unity to mankind not division and hate. That is not what
Jinnah ended up doing.
|There are two particular statements I want to quote here which
express the message of faithfreedom beautifully...
"No nation can rise to the height of glory unless your
women are side by side with you. We are victims of evil customs.
It is a crime against humanity that our women are shut up within
the four walls of the houses as prisoners." ( Barrister
The new state would be a modern democratic state with
sovereignty resting in the people and the members of the new
nation having equal rights of citizenship regardless of their
religion, caste or creed.
(Jinnah to Doon Campbell 21st May 1947)
These are lip services and the evidence of Jinnah's intellectual
dishonesty. Muslims are not victims of evil customs. They are victims of
Islam, the very think Jinnah enslaved the Pakistanis forever. If shutting
up the women within the four walls of the house is a crime. Jinnah is the accomplice
of that crime. If he really wanted to make Pakistan a modern state with sovereignty
resting on people he should not have created a country under the Islamic
pretext. Jinnah should have known Islam is not for equality of women
or democracy when he gave birth to a nation with that identity as its
raison d'Ítre. You can't create an
Islamic country that is not Islamic. This is cognitive dissonance.
There is an inconsistency between the above aspiration and the Islamic
identity that he imposed on Pakistan.
Do you still think Jinnah was a great leader? I
have no doubt that the future Pakistani historians will allocate him to
his proper place. He will be remembered as an egotistic and
opportunistic man, who shattered millions of lives for one reason
alone and that is to leave his mark as the founder of a nation. He gave
them false promises of a promised land that he knew he could not deliver,
especially with Islam as their identity. He told Muslims you can't live
with Hinuds because of your Faith, then he promised them democracy and
equality which are antithesis to Islam. In this regard he was either a
fool or a con man. But one thing is certain and that is he was after his
own interests, willing break up a great country just to leave a legacy of
