Even after 73 years, the discussion of 'How Pakistan'
"There are very few people who have significantly changed the course of history and there are even fewer people who have changed the map of the world. Muhammad Ali Jinnah is a person who has changed at the same time. The American historian and professor Stanley Wolpert has chosen some such words about the personality of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah in his book Jinnah of Pakistan.
Most of the historical documents state that December 25, 1876 was the birthday of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. However, some historians claim that Jinnah's original date of birth was October 20, 1875, which Jinnah later changed to December 25, 1876. The founder of Pakistan, with a charismatic and intimidating personality, was an incomparable intellectual, a man of understanding and one of the most expensive lawyers of his time, who at that time received a compensation of about fifteen hundred rupees for a case. However, there was a time in Jinnah's life when he gave up advocacy, stepped into acting and started his career with a Shakespearean company in London. But in Jinnah's life, this chapter was limited to very short lines.
When Jinnah returned to Karachi in 1896, he found his father at a loss in business. He decided to start his legal practice in Bombay (now Mumbai) but due to his qualifications he soon succeeded in gaining a foothold in the field of advocacy.
About 10 years later, he became active in politics. He divided his interest into law and politics. He was not a fanatical or superficial religious person at all, but a broad-minded Muslim, with no affiliation with sects. Jinnah was once considered the greatest ambassador of Hindu-Muslim unity. It would not be an exaggeration to say that he was considered a religious thinker. Probably a factor as to why they're doing so poorly.
In his various speeches, however, he proposed different interpretations for Pakistan. Addressed In his speech, Muhammad Ali Jinnah promoted state affairs, religious freedom, rule of law and equality. In the same speech, Muhammad Ali Jinnah was seen supporting the separation of religion and state.
But, today, 73 years after the death of the founder of Pakistan, the question is being raised, what kind of Pakistan did he want? The Pakistani nation is still divided on this question.
A large majority in Pakistan argues that Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and the All India Muslim League Party wanted a purely religious state, while there is a section of the country that insists that Jinnah is an educated liberal of the West. They were human beings and they did not want an Islamic state. On both sides, Muhammad Ali Jinnah's various speeches and writings are cited to make his views effective, meaningful and balanced. However, soon after his secession from India, Jinnah asked the legislators to devise an Islamic banking system.
With regard to minorities, Quaid-e-Azam assured them of full rights everywhere and equal citizenship with the state. Just look at his August 11 speech. According to the excerpt of the speech, his words were "You are all free, you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques and in the state of Pakistan. To go to any of your places of worship, whether you belong to any religion, caste or race, the state has nothing to do with it. ”
Even before this, in November 1941, 1945 and 1946 and at various other occasions and occasions, Quaid-e-Azam had unequivocally reiterated that minorities would continue to be equal and non-discriminatory citizens of the state, whether Hindu, Sikh, Christian or any other. Minorities will not be judged on the basis of their religion, all will have equal rights.
Not only that, but on the first Sunday immediately after the establishment of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam along with his sister Fatima Jinnah attended a party in Karachi, where he assured the minorities of complete protection and equality.
Quaid-e-Azam assured the minorities of equal citizenship not only in word but also in deed. Including more than ten minority members. The extent to which the founders of Pakistan valued minorities is clear from their words and deeds.
The Quaid made economic points in his various speeches. Addressing a dinner in 1947, he said, "I do not believe in an economic system where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. We have to ensure justice with both classes without disturbing the balance of society." He strongly discouraged the black market, even choosing the death penalty for those involved.
He was well aware of the importance of economy. "As long as a country is economically weak, it has no hope of winning the battle of life," he said. Speaking at the inauguration of the SBP building in 1948, he also referred to Islamic banking. "We have to make our own destiny and provide the world with an economic system based on the Islamic concept of equality and social justice," he said.
Today is September 11, 2021. Seventy-seven years have passed since the death of the Founder of Pakistan, but we are still barely hanging on to the thread of a dream, and we are divided on this. Our country is mired in a quagmire of minorities, women and even religious litigation on earth.
We have forgotten the role of women in the struggle of Pakistan, including the founder's sister Fatima Jinnah and despite the growing challenges we are stuck in 'To Kya Mein Kya'. It is unfortunate that there are people in this country who want women's identity to be limited to one gender only. Quaid did not want such a Pakistan at all.
Regardless of what kind of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam wanted, but one thing is for sure, he certainly did not want such a Pakistan as this country has become today. I believe that Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah wanted a welfare state where no injustice could be done to the poor, the knowledge of justice should be higher and higher. Where there is no superiority over one another on the basis of beliefs, they did not want a state where citizens are killed and harassed in the name of religion, religion is considered a measure of patriotism, restrictions are imposed on women, expression of opinion. Freedom of He wanted a Pakistan where justice could not be measured in terms of money. Quaid was looking for a Pakistan where hundreds of Sikhs, candles of peace and tranquility were lit. When this becomes Pakistan then we will understand that this is Jinnah's Pakistan.
