Alternative Road to Freedom
We can achieve the real freedom by being honest to ourselves and learning from those who were devastated by corruption
VIEWPOINT BY DR.WASIM AHMED
There was a time when I would be jealous of Indians and Pakistanis for their Independence, and used to dream of a similarly free country where we would sing our national anthem in chorus, hoist our own flag in cricket matches and offer tributes to our Martyrs who laid their lives for our Independence. But of late my conformist brain has started to deride the very concept of freedom and liberty. Does freedom mean that instead of British killing 400 Sikhs in Jallianwala Bagh you have “democratically elected leaders” killing 4,000 innocent Sikhs after assassination of Indira Gandhi? These Sikhs were more patriotic than the politicians who butchered them, as were those innocent 3,000 Muslims killed in the wake of Babri Masjid demolition, or those innocent 5,000 Muslims massacred in Gujarat as well as those innocent Missionaries burnt alive or nuns raped in Orissa. Does freedom mean that instead of being looted, tortured and killed by men wearing red British uniform, the same is being done today by those wearing Swadesi Khaki?
Does Freedom mean that instead of British army taking Lagaan from poor Indians the same is done by their “democratically elected leaders” through corruption? Does Freedom mean that instead of British exploiting the Indian Farmers, today their “democratically elected leaders” drive them to commit suicide amidst famines while allowing the water to be used by Western companies to produce Coke and Pepsi that is then sold at a cost comparable to that of petrol? Does freedom mean that instead of living under Victorian flags, Indians hoist tricolour to support their cricketers all of whom play for sponsoring Foreign brands? Are Indians free because instead of forcing them to purchase British products overtly, they voluntarily purchase them because of fashion and “Globalisation”? Every product of Daily use that’s produced by Indians using Indian resources requires them to pay royalty to the same Western companies just for using the Brand Names like Nestle, Lever Ltd, P&G etc. Does freedom mean to call Muslim women as backward and oppressed for observing Swadesi Purdah instead of wearing Videshi jeans and skirt? Does freedom mean to drive away Muslim neighbors for eating chicken while inviting the old imperialists to take over Indian economy by selling the same chicken in KFC and McDonalds?
Just as “Freedom”, my conformist brain thinks that todays’ Patriotism is equally awry. Does patriotism mean butchering the people of Kashmir for demanding their legitimate, democratic rights while “patriotic” Hindu politicians steal money out of coffins of their soldiers slain in Kargil war? Does Patriotism mean calling Islam a threat to their country when it is the Muslims like Abdul Kalam giving them missiles and nukes to defend their country while their Hindu leaders sold the defense of their country in Bofors scam? Does patriotism mean to single out a minority community as a threat to their country when it’s always the majority community that is abusing their country as Kalmadis, Thackereys, Modis, Yadavs, Raos, Dixits etc?
So much said for India, but what about Pakistan? Chauvinism aside, all the above factors about hollowness of independence are more relevant to Pakistan as for now there is hardly a doubt that Pakistan has been completely colonized by (Zionist)America that has installed a puppet president of criminal background. I know how painful this statement is but this is the harsh reality we have to admit. Zardari’s family lives in England and the son he nominated as future “supremo” cannot speak his mother tongue Urdu but talks only in English with British accent. Pakistan was created (supposedly) to restore the self-respect of Muslims of the subcontinent. Instead it butchered its own people in Bangladesh before shamefully surrendering to India. It first helped CIA to create Taliban and destroy Afghanistan and then aided the same Zionists to destroy Taliban by allowing them to take over their country. When people of Kashmir started an indigenous war for Independence, Pakistan caused a rift between the Pro-independent and Pro-Pakistani factions which ultimately proved to be a blow more fatal than Indo-Israeli counter-insurgency tactics. On one hand its citizens are going to foreign land for establishing the law of God while on the other hand they are accepting “aid” from America, a country they themselves pronounce as Darul Kufr. And this “aid” is given provided they help the Zionists to massacre Muslims in Afghanistan and in their own country. Those who wanted Kashmir to become a part of Pakistan closed down cinemas in Kashmir, yet in Pakistan even the worst of Indian flops becomes a super hit. Indian celebrities attract more attention in Pakistan than Kashmiris who laid down their lives for that country. Their artists are dying to work in India, their traders yearning for business with India, their cricketers yearning to play in India especially in the private leagues since the match fixing scandals have shown how much they prefer money to the honor of their country.
Both India and Pakistan have almost the same constitution and set of laws that British imposed on them and which governs the functioning of their “elected leaders”. So in what sense did they achieve freedom? If people and their leaders in both countries prefer everything Western (economy, language, culture, education, commodities, entertainment etc), what for was this whole drama of “Azadi from colonial rule” that has left festering sores in the subcontinent?
I became conformist after fearing that “Freedom” of Kashmir should not turn out to be a similarly hollow event. Freedom for Kashmir shouldn’t be restricted to a musical anthem and piece of cloth to be waved at sporting event. Freedom shouldn’t mean that after recovering our exploited resources from India we offer them to Zionists as in Pakistan. After freedom we shouldn’t be paying royalty to the jews for using a toothpaste made on our own homeland. We should be able to defend ourselves against our enemies to preserve our freedom rather than allowing the Zionists to create military bases in the garb of “peace keeping forces” for their own selfish motives. But above all we need a CONSTITUTION that will make freedom credible. Have we anything like that in mind or it suffices for our “learned scholars” that UNO (Zionists) will provide it, as well as an interest based economy system, that will make rich richer and poor poorer, as in India and Pakistan?
My dwarfed intellect has no capacity to discuss the volumes of political and legislative encyclopedia, all written by the Western “intelligentsia”. I had heard that there is a Book that has solutions to all the problems of the mankind and is free from any error. It transformed an uncultured, illiterate society into a beacon of civilization in twenty years. Our Imperialists, who had painstakingly destroyed its achievements first by internal conspiracies against the Caliphate and then overtly by colonialism, seemed too aware of its potential of making them lose their fiefdoms they had built after looting and dividing the globe. And they did it in two phases. In the first phase they divided the Caliphate into regional states with their boundaries safeguarded by the (Zionist) UNO. Religion was made oblivious by implanting crypto-jews like Kamal Ataturk as “Muslim” leaders and Universal brotherhood preached by Islam was replaced by regionalism. Arabic was deliberately removed from the curriculum to render Muslims blind in understanding their own religion. Islam was wrongly presented as “religion of terror” by the Zionist media, the same Islam that gave refuge to the jews during crusades when they were cannibalized by “Civilized Christians”. Islam gave them refuge again during the “Holocaust”. Islam taught civilization to the West. Islam ruled subcontinent for 1000 years and converted it into a civilisation marvel. “Civilised” West ruled it for 300 years and sucked marrow out of its skeletons. Does freedom from British mean that a Hindu should hate his Muslim brother because Britain labels them terrorists just to hide the devilish inhumanity committed by jews in occupied Palestine?
The enemies of Islam (Zionists) had all the reasons for Hating this religion and creating decoys to misrepresent it. Islam wouldn’t encourage them to impoverish the world by interest based economy but to distribute their wealth as Zakaat. Real Islam meant they would have to respect the chastity of women instead of exploiting them and converting them to income generating concubines. Real Islam meant that they had to give up their status of being “God’s chosen people” and instead try to achieve exaltation by righteous means, which they are totally incapable of except for a show to fool the world. Actual Islam meant to give protection to other communities rather than making them fight with each other and looting their booty. Actual Islam meant honest submission to God, rather than to devil which, as per Talmud, they openly practice.
Please excuse my hallucinations as they have no legitimacy in the sea of contemporary literature , written almost exclusively by the West. They have been glorifying “freedom struggles” right from the start of French revolution and executing the same strategy again and again so that every nation fighting for “freedom” ultimately lands into their clutches via UNO without even realizing it. The only meagre support I find for my hallucinations is a book called Sahih Bukhari in which the beloved Prophet (S.A.W.S.) mentions of a time when there will be revolutions and killings all around but every coming period will be worse than before, when rulers will be the worst amongst the people and religious preachers will be most corrupt. The only solution he has mentioned is the re-establishment of faith.
Why I mentioned these hallucinations is that they have given me an idea about Real Freedom. Just turn the above incidents in reverse order i.e. starting with learning of Arabic, understanding Quran for spiritual purposes than a mere lip worship, building Muslim character to a level that it is able to resist evil temptations solely by the strength of faith than by the fear of punishment, showing the world the right image of Islam, dissolving the anti-human borders created by Zionist UNO and re-establishing Caliphate, not by militarily means but solely on the basis of faith and piety. At individual level Real Freedom, as I understand, is freedom from the satanic desires and a free country is the one where people have faith to observe this Freedom by honest obedience to their God. Let there be no more man-made destructive laws and boundaries please.
