This is very unlucky for the sacred land of Pakistan to bear the burden of two groups of clerics, fanatics, extremists, radicals.
First group is very obvious and has already earned a bad reputation for being very religious. As it has become a fashion, the whole world blames these religious people for ruining the image of Pakistan. No need to go in further detail.
The second group of the same intensity consists of the people who claim to be progressive, moderate and educated. Unfortunately, when a situation falls, they react and behave exactly the same way as the first group does.
The first group has existed for a long time and for that reason they do have a good and strong support of their followers. They know their power, they can come on the street and can destroy everything.
I personally appreciate the ideology of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan for clearing the path for this second groups of fanatics. Sir Syed Ahmed Khan must not had that intention but it served like a ….. to create these two extremist sides. Before Muslims had a tradition of sending their children to madrassah for religious knowledge and good training. After spending couple of years there, children were free to go anywhere for further education. Even Quaid-e-Azam first attended Sindh Madrasatul Islam.
Convincing the Muslims to believe that language barrier is the ONLY reason of their failure and education in English medium is the ONLY solution to their freedom and progress. To me this is a path to slavery. Islam doesn’t limit progress bound to any language or any particular system of education.
What a safe and clever trick to divide Pakistanis on the basis of educational system.
I want to ask these educated radicals, you go to college and universities, what do you learn there, the same attitude, no problem solving strategies you have to resolve these issues, or you just don’t care about what’s going on? Why don’t you show these mullahs the true meaning of tolerance and peace and justice and harmony and morality and humanity? If they don’t, you become tolerant to them. What is the base of your claiming that Mullahs and religious parties are not presenting the true Islam? Have you read Qur’an (even if you don’t believe in it, just as a common book), have you studied the life of the Prophet (peace be upon him) like most of the learned non-Mulims do? And you call yourself educated???? How much do you care about the society or human being? YOUR PHILOSOPHY OF HUMANITY REVOLVES AROUND SELF-GROOMING, PERSONAL FAME AND MAINTAINING PERSONAL LIFE. Tell me how many matters have you solved on the basis of what you think of Islam or whatever you believe in?
And if you don’t know how to handle the situation, show some patience and neutralize yourself. Don’t act like adding oil to the fire. Try to understand the situation we are facing here in Pakistan. This is not a joke.
PEOPLE OF PAKISTAN NEED TO BE AWARE OF BOTH THESE GROUPS. THEY ARE EQUALLY DANGEROUS FOR THE INTEGRITY OF PAKISTAN. ONE HAS A PROMISE TO ENTER PARADISE. THE OTHER READY TO ENTER USA OR CANADA.
