“People Of Pakistan, Be On The Right Side Of History”: Sheikh Imran N. Hosein
By News Desk
The well-known Islamic scholar Sheikh Imran N. Hosein has released a special video message for the people of Pakistan in light of the recent events in the country. He said that it was a new page in history and Pakistan’s establishment must not make the mistake of thinking that this is business as usual:
We are now located at a critically important moment in history, when history is turning.
At this time the people of Pakistan must understand that it is not like yesterday and the day before yesterday when the military can come with a barrel of a gun and take over the country. And then take the country to being a lap dog of the American Imperialism. Not at all! And open the territory of Pakistan for 14 years for NATO to send their weapons to Afghanistan to kill our people. Not at all!
A real voice rose in Pakistan: a voice of credibility and integrity and courage and said: “No! Pakistan will not wage America’s wars for America anymore!”
We pay tribute to that voice. The leadership of the Pakistan Armed Forces may not do it! The politicians who can be bought with the U.S. dollars may not do it! The ones who have betrayed the government of Pakistan and caused this U.S. dollar regime change in Pakistan, tomorrow the people of Pakistan will deal with you! You are a pathetic sight today!
My advice for the people of Pakistan is to pay attention to the Quran. My advice is to pay attention to the Surah Al-Kahf of the Quran. My advice to Pakistan is to pay attention to the Dhul-Qarnain of the Quran.
And to understand what I am saying to you, this is NOT business as usual! Not at all! This is a new page in history! A NEW PAGE of history has emerged with Russia’s intervention in Ukraine.
The people of Pakistan: you have to be on the right side of history. The armed forces are led by people who are on the wrong side of history. The professional politicians are on the wrong side of history. But you have a leader in Pakistan, who despite the mistakes he made with the IMF, at least had the courage and integrity to say: “We need to build the same relationship with Russia that we have with China.”
And they can have their U.S. dollar revolution and regime change, it will not stop it! This caravan is moving on. You cannot prevent it. Pakistan is going to build the same relationship with Russia that it has with China. You cannot stop it! No matter how many more regime changes you have!
I don’t want to see the people of Pakistan coming out on streets in violent demonstrations. I don’t want to see blood flowing on the streets of Pakistan. No. Allah is with you. And if you put your trust in Allah, you will be successful.
This is an opportunity, rather than a debacle. Allah says in the Quran:
وَعَسَىٰٓ أَن تَكْرَهُوا۟ شَيْـًۭٔا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌۭ لَّكُمْ
“It may be that you dislike something, but in it is benefit for you.” (Quran 2:216)
So this is my message to you: yes we are very sad about the events that have taken place in Pakistan, while they are beating their drums, the U.S. dollar drums, and they are happy, and we are sad, but the majority of Pakistani people are with us. They don’t have the majority. It’s just a matter of time.
You have to show your strength, show your numbers, and do it in a non-violent way. Do not give any opportunity for blood to be shed. Conduct yourselves now with dignity; conduct yourselves now following the Sunnah of the man you follow: Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
And that is a non-violent response. To show your strength in Pakistan, that this country cannot be stopped. This caravan cannot be stopped. The dogs can keep on barking, but Pakistan is going to build the same relationship with Russia that Pakistan has with China, and NO ONE can stop that, not even the Chief of the Staff of the Armed Forces of Pakistan.
This is my advice gently given to you today, and I hope you respond in this way and we avoid bloodshed in Pakistan; we avoid civil war in Pakistan. And when they see the evidence, mounting evidence, that Pakistan is going to remain faithful to the Quran, Pakistan will recognise that the red line has been reached.
The red line was reached in Ukraine and now the red line has been reached in Pakistan. It’s not business as usual, Chief of Staff, not at all! It’s a new page in history and we are going to take the people of Pakistan on Sirat ul Mustaqim.
