Cruelty is IGNORANCE (Ahsan ul Haq)
Pakistan came into being on the 14th of August 1947. We have seen 67 summers of the country. It has been 67 long years when our country was shown on the map of the world. We started from a very poor and faded country. We were poor because we had not received our due rights but we were not poor because we had no resources.
The British Empire ruled over us for more than 200 years. The story began in the era of Mughal empire JAHANGIR who allowed EAST INDIA COMPANY to trade with ancient HINDUSTAN. But this is all in the PAST. We are living in 2014 i.e the 21st century.
But with a sorrowful heart, we are still living within the bondage of pharaoh-like rulers. We are living as the children of Israel from the time of Jusef to MOSES. In other words, we are still living as prisoners from the era of one prince of Egypt to an other prince of Egypt. And in between this era, we are alike the children of Israel.
It is very strange and interesting fact that on the surface of the map of EARTH, there are two countries that are made in the name of religion. I mean they have strong ideologies. Emotionally and sentimentally they are religious countries and their practices are based strictly on their beliefs.
These two countries are Pakistan and Israel. Many will not believe what I am saying but if sincerely one will study the background and purpose of making of these countries, one will find me as a person speaking the TRUTH. Why should I lie in front of millions of users of internet? Nup!!! I will not. Israel is made for the Jews of all over the planet EARTH and Pakistan was supposed to be an Islamic state on the surface of EARTH and not to be a secular state. It should be in all meanings within Islam an Islamic state.
My Question…. Is Saudi Arabia an Islamic state? My answer: NO!
It is only the guardian of the Islamic holy places in one or any other way. But an Islamic state is a welfare state, It is not a state where everything starts from hand cuttings and ends with beheading humans. The first step is WELFARE.
Welfare has its broad scope in Islam. It starts from the human beings and ends to the tiny innocent creatures of Allah subhanahu. After the state has given enough resources to the humanity, then if anyone breaks the LAW, so one should be punished according to the Islamic LAW. The LAW should be equal for anyone, not only for the poor/rich/ordinary man but also for the Caliph/kings.
Are these countries following the sayings of Mohemmud the prophet (May Allah’s blessings be upon him, amen)? I say NO!!! What about the saying of the caliph Umer? He said if any single kitten is dead/killed in my reign, Allah will ask me for that? Why it so happened?
What about a story told by Mohemmud the prophet about a prostitute? When she saw a thirsty dog? She ran towards a near well and she found nothing to pour water and she just took off her sock and dipped it with water and ran back to the dog and let her sock to suck the dog to drink water through this way?
And what did Mohemmud the prophet say next? Perhaps no Moslim of today knows about that… He (PBUH) said, “Allah was so much pleased with that prostitute (woman) that he forgave every sin of her and entered the paradise when she died.” Of course the dog was a feral dog and not a household dog. On the other hand, What did Mohemmud the prophet say about a woman who tortured a cat till death, was she forgiven? No not at all, she was in burning hell after she died! These are a few examples of the welfare of cats/ dogs in Islam and sure about those who have been cruel to these innocent creatures of Allah.
Are we (so called) Moslems of Pakistan following the sayings of Mohemmud the prophet? Or we are just boldly denying him???? I am sure that we are opposing our prophet Mohemmud and still we want to remain Moslems because we are eager to enter in the paradise whether we follow the truth or we lie straight away.
So this is Islam of Pakistan. A country which came into being on the 27th fast day of the holy date of Ramazan. Thousands of sacrifices were made to build this country. We wanted our holy land in which Moslems should live within the sayings of Allah and Mohemmud the prophet. (If I am not wrong, the conclusions of the sayings of Allah and Mohemmud the prophet is called the ISLAM)
The orthodox Moslems became the most hatred people because they always remind the (so called) modern Moslems that Islam is basically the welfare religion and it hates torture.
The question is, how can a Moslem state carry out its welfare, where to start from???? The answer: start from THE CENSUS!!!
Without a census, no state can know about the resources and the disciplines of distribution of these resources amongst the population.
The following is the data of census in Pakistan:
- First Census: year 1951
- Second Census: year 1961
- Third Census: year 1972 (1971 Census delayed due to war with India)
- Fourth Census: year 1981
- Fifth Census: year 1998 (delayed due to political issues and was decided to take place in 2008)
- Sixth Census: year 2008 but was conducted 2012 and was not reliable. It was not seriously followed by the government of that time. REJECTED!!!
So, the country does even not know about the size of the population and the politicians are not serious about the matter.
Lets come back to the issue! … If a country is not interested in human welfare, so my question has a solid answer.
How can we know about the exact population of our FERAL CATS and DOGS???
If human beings in the country are left without welfare, so my question is… how can we do or even think about the welfare of cats in Pakistan? Yes! I agree that few people may do the welfare for these cats by their own and they can have support of few people inside or outside the country but over all if any Pakistani claim to say that “we can better handle our cats, and Mr. Michael! You don’t have to worry about them! And abusive words which have no sense or respect!” I will rudely answer to that person! You are a LIAR and you even not know the population of your own family members rather to claim about cats or kittens.
Michael has written an article on the “Feral cats of Pakistan” and I totally agree with Michael and disagree with every single country man of mine because the ground realities are bitter than what are being explained verbally and let me say that the response from a Pakistani person (mentioning no name) is a BLUFF response in the article and have only to cover the dark lie which can be observed in my daily life routine.
If we change ourselves, our attitude towards the cats of Pakistan, I am sure being a Pakistani will become much prouder than that what we are today so let us only speak the TRUTH and let this bitter TRUTH hang over our necks until we are not CHANGED. THANK YOU PAKISTAN!!!! L
