Straight From The Heart – April 2014 – Editorial

Straight from the heart!
Syeda Qudsiya Mashhadi

Dear readers
Assalam o Alaikum.

The country is rapidly turning into a circus run by nincompoops and thugs where we see attack on our Ideology by the so-called intelligentsia of the society in the form of questions raised about the credibility and intellect of the ideological father of the nation, Allama Iqbal. Accompanying this is an onslaught on the ideological and geographical defenders of Pakistan, our Armed Forces. The timing of these attacks is too sinister to be taken casually. The attacks on Iqbal and Jinnah are engineered to confuse the masses about their identity and the actual purpose of the creation of Pakistan. It is an ultimate attack on the roots of our country and the most important step of the 4thGW that has been launched against Pakistan.

This ‘softening up’ of Pakistan for external invasion does not stop here. At a time when Pak Army is fighting the battle against Khawarij and sacrificing all they can, we see severe attacks on the Pak Armed Forces from politicians of failed political parties. Trial against one General has turned into personal vendetta and all the main pillars of the state, the government, the judiciary and the media are hell bent upon ‘conquering’ their own military by hook or by crook. While listening to a venomous speech against Pakistan Army by a key minister given in the parliament, I had to remind myself that this was not an Indian politician delivering a speech in Lok Sabha; it was Pakistan and a Pakistani minister was speaking ‘against’ Pakistan’s military in Pakistan’s parliament! What a sweet dream come true for the enemies of Pakistan, unfortunately.

It is of the utmost importance that no institute should be held above the law and everyone should be answerable if they have worked against the interest of Pakistan. But it is also imperative that the Law should be applied to all and no selective judgments should be made. Justice should not be for sale. The integrity of the Defenders of Pakistan, who have shown concrete proof of their love for the country by giving their blood, should NOT be questioned! This infighting between the institutes of the state can be disastrous for the nation and we are already seeing its effects. May Allah [swt] have mercy on Pakistan, but before that Pakistanis have to be merciful to themselves!

آگ ہے، اولاد ابراہیم ہے، نمرود ہے

کیا کسی کو پھر کسی کا امتحاں مقصود ہے

Stay blessed.
