Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah passed away on September 11, 1948 after falling prey to tuberculosis. The steadfast, principled founding father of Pakistan breathed his last just 13 months after he had done the Muslims of sub-continent a great favour by acquiring a separate homeland for them.

Jinnah

Jinnah was a brilliant lawyer and subsequently, a shrewd politician. Jinnah was diagnosed with tuberculosis in 1930. Quaid-e-Azam had hidden this information from everyone, excluding his sister Fatima Ali Jinnah and a few of his close friends and relatives. Tuberculosis what was eventually took his life and during his last days, worsened his deteriorating condition.

Jinnah

On 6 July, 1948 Quaid-e-Azam went to Quetta as advised by his personal physician Colonel Dr Ilahi Bukhsh, for a change in environment. Quaid-e-Azam took rest in the residency area of Quetta, which is known as Quaid-e-Azam Residency today.

Jinnah’s health further took a turn for the worse and in order to place him under better healthcare, he was called back to Karachi by his physicians. He contracted pneumonia on September 9, 1948.

Quaid-e-Azam was brought to Karachi from Quetta by a c-130 plane on 11 September and was transported in an ambulance to the Governor House in Karachi. Unfortunately, his ambulance broke down and another ambulance was arranged for Pakistan’s ailing first Governor-General.  For half an hour, Jinnah and his sister waited for another ambulance. The intense heat had taken its toll on the sick Jinnah and by the time the caravan reached Governor House, the Quaid’s health condition was grave.

At 10:20 pm, Quaid-e-Azam was pronounced dead. When Lord Mounbatten, the last Viceroy of India, came to know about Jinnah’s demise, this is what he said:-

Quaid’s most bitter enemy and India’s first Prime Minister Jawarlal Nehru said:-

“For a very long time, I despised Jinnah. Though now that he remains no more, I am quite sad that he worked so hard and achieved it, but at such a large cost.”

Even after 67 years of the great man’s passing, thousands flock to his mausoleum on 11th September. This itself is evident of the fact that Pakistanis still love the man to this day and adhere strict reverence to his stance. No doubt, the man left a legacy unmatched.

Loadshedding and Me

We are old pals, loadshedding and me. I don’t recall a time, at all, when I did not experience the absence of electricity. It was always there, coming and going, like it owned the country. And it continues to do so after so many years; no wonder my nephew was confused when he asked his American school friend a week after arriving in US “When does the electricity goes out?” and his reply, with equally confusing facial expressions, was “Never”.

Just take yesterday’s example when I was out playing Cricket after quite a long time. The heat was so intense that I needed water break after every couple of overs. We had placed a pedestal fan in the dressing room but behold, it worked for just an hour because of loadshedding. We also brought a watercooler with plain drinking water, hoping to buy ice from nearby shops, but they were out of ice due to loadshedding. Thanks to them, I had blacked out in the 17th over and was lying spread-eagled in the dressing room (which was nothing more than a tented cubicle with broken benches and hard-edged stones to sit on).

Before that the loadshedding had me running like a mad dog, ready to bite anyone just for the heck of it. I was contemplating spending 80,000 rupees to build a gaming computer to replace my 5 year old computer. I had great plans in mind but so apparently did KESC (Karachi Electricity Supply Corporation). While working on an important assignment, the electricity went out and returned 4 times in 10 minutes, each time with violent fluctuations. Thus departed my trusted friend, my companion, my source of Counter Strike, countless movies and hundreds of assignments as its motherboard decided never to wake up again.

Next thing I did, I bought myself a damned laptop.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg. I am but a small player in the vast sea of people who think themselves as old friends of loadshedding as well. Guess what, each tells the exact same story thinking it’s his own. Some even believe loadshedding is the savior of humanity. They say so because as toddlers they had the habit of plunging their tiny fingers in the electricity sockets, only to realize there is no electricity due to loadshedding. They owe their lives to it.

Some believe that electricity is the root of all evil. It helps run television, the source of all evil, fans and light, source of all evil, computers, another source of all evil, cell phones, mother of all evil … they advocate permanent loadshedding to curb the source of all evil and do away with worldly stuff.

Lying spread-eagled in that tented dressing room as a result of dehydration and nothing cool to experience, I just wanted to strangle one of these advocates.

Some time ago I was sitting with 4 of my friends and we were planning to spend some quality time. After the initial brain-storming session, we decided that we’ll gather at someone’s house and watch movie like old times. That was easy part, what followed next was something else entirely.

Friend A: My place is fine but not in the evening. Loadshedding from 4 to 7

Friend B: You got generatorloadshedding,karachi loadshedding,Pakistan loadshedding,loadshedding in Pakistan,Loadshedding and Me,urban and rural areas of the country,urban and rural areas, of the country,Think about it,Pakistan,karachi,lahore,loadshedding protest,islamic protest,

Friend A: I had. It leaked oil and now gone to repair shop

Me: We can watch at my place, loadshedding time is 1 to 4

Friend C: Nah, your place is too far and I have got to hit the gym by 6

Friend D: Your gym stinks, it doesn’t even have ACs

Friend C: None lasts more than 3 months, thanks to loadshedding

Friend B: What about you?

Friend C: Same, loadshedding from 4 to 7

Friend D: Mine’s from 3 to 5

Me: What about after 7?

Friends: Nah, work/assignment/have to pick mom/quiz preparation

Me: And before that?

Friends: Class/Class/Class/Class

And we were planning all that while fanning ourselves with books since it was loadshedding time. The gathering finally managed to take place and we played Cricket instead.

It gets funnier when you compare the level of inequality of loadshedding between urban and rural areas of the country. A few years back my university friends said they wished to see my village. I told them, quite clearly, that it was winter season and it would be a lot colder than you would expect. It is not possible spend the night without turning on the heater.

So what is the problem? You have heater, right?” asked one of them. I said to him “Yes, we do have heaters and even a hearth which we rarely use now”. He seemed excited, the poor fellow had never experienced cold lower than 3 degrees centigrade.

My friends did visit my village, myself giving them a guiding tour from the city, and stayed for a few days. Only then did I revealed my true friendship with loadshedding and casually told them “We get 17 hours of loadshedding daily, no big deal”. The horrors on their faces and nights spent with chattering teeth are priceless memories, all thanks to my old friend called ‘loadshedding’.

Another day another ShiaGenocide in Pakistan

Another day, another ShiaGenocide in Pakistan !!

You know how it feels ?

Like you wake up and come to know someone you is been dead and when you ask the reason it is because he/she was shia ?

A mother come to know her child is been death and she asks the reason and she is been told that you are shia and you son was shia.

You have  given a interview and you dont get appointed and you think maybe there was someone more talented got appointed or maybe someone with a parchi ( source/influence) got appointed thats why you didnt got job and the resaon you come to know is that you are shia.

You are a doctor and running your clinic and you get an unknow letter that says ” Leave or be ready to be killed” and the reason is cause you are shia !!

You are living in home, watching tv and suddenly you hear a big blast. You go to gallery, to check out what has happened. Look outside the window & you see damages of the blast that has been happened because you live in shia populated area.

You are in school, in class 4 or 5 and your teacher always picks on you, always asked toughest questions and give you low marks. Because you are shia.

You are walking across the street to get daily groceries of your home and see 2 guys come in a bike and shoot a guy. When you ask the reason of him been killed you come to know he was shia.

You are trying to find a place to live. So, you look into the places to get a house and they dont give you house on rent because you are shia !!

You are living in a house and someone slips a piece of letter that states ” Leave this place or be ready to Die ” because you are shia !!

You are travelling in a bus. Bus gets stopped, some people hi-jacked the buss take every passengers out of the buss. Asks everyones NIC. Checks your name and than kill you because you have a shia name.

You are a teacher and you teach children and you get shooted because you a shia and you teach shia children.

You are in mosque,praying and then their is a blast and people die arround you because you are shia and you are in shia masjid.

You are in jaalous and mourning on the death of Imam Hussain (A.S) the beloved grandchild of Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) and you see a bomb blast infront of you because you shia and you are in a shia jaalous !!

One of this has been happened to every shia person or in his family !!
This is not a made up or fiction story but the truth. This is what happening to Shia in Pakistan. A ShiaGenocide , A ShiaKilling.

Shia doctors, shia engineers, shia lawyers  all educated and literate shia people are getting killed systematically in Pakistan along with every other shia men,women and chile they can find.

Shias are not just get targeted in just joulus, they are just not targeted in Imam Bargha, they are not just get targeted on streets. They are even targeted in their home. Yes, in their own home !!

And it does end here, they even target women and children. Yes, women and children !!

Imagine a shia person, how should he/she feel ?? And this is been on and on and on..repeat after repeat.. just some conservative condemnation, some trends but no action ShiaGenocide or ShiaKilling

So, as they are killing a shia people and  so does that mean if a person becames sunni, He/she will be save ?
According to some Shia are kafir so, if one becomes a Sunni.. he/she will be safe ?? Right ??
Person will be their Sunni Brother/Sister and that means he/she is one of them and they shouldnt kill them ??

So is this is the way to make a Shia Muslim into Sunni Muslim ??
So is this is the proper way to become a Muslim in Pakistan ??
So is this is the way a person becomes Muslim ??
So is this is the way Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) made people muslim ??
So is this is the way to save a life of Shia in Pakistan ??
Maybe this is the way?? Right ??

But one and the most important thing the people involve in ShiaKilling and in ShiaGenocide forget that these Shia people weep and mourn for Imam Hussain (A.S).
They cannot forget the spirit of Karbala, so we will die but we cannot give up on Hussainiyat !!
They cannot gave up the teaching of Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) !!
They cannot gave up love for Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) and his Family !!

Like one of our Teacher Shaheed Ustad Sibte Jafar said I am constantly receiving death threats from outlawed militant outfits. My family,friends and some academic friends/colleagues are offering me full support for Us or Canada migration.But why would I go? My whole life is spent in service of Imam Hussain (A.S) who got martyrdom for saving Islam.If I am to die for the same cause, why would I leave this country? I preach martyrdom,I enlighten about martyrdom. I write in praise of martyrs.. than why should I run away from it ? For a Shiite Muslim, martyrdom is the ultimate success

And by all this I still believe in Shia Sunni Unity. I know lots and lots of Sunni families who are like my own flesh and blood. My Sunni friends who are brothers to me. None of them will never even think of hurting any other human being. Each day who made me believe that Shia Sunni Bhai Bhai !!

But not speaking about Shia Genocide or Shia Killing is not a right thing or right approach or saying everyday people die in Pakistan for this or that reason is not the right thing.
Just look at the facts and figures. You are sunni & it’s not happening to you? What does it says to you ??

You guys might have Shia friends or maybe know any Shia family. Just have a little courage and asked them have they lost a loved one in shia killing and I am sure that 99% of them would say yes !! This is the truth about Shia Genocide or shia killing in Pakistan !!

In end, I would just say..
Today its someone else but tomorrow it might be me because I am SHIA !!
