Verses of the Day – Allama Iqbal (RA)

February 15, 2007

Na Utha Phir Koi Rumi Ajam Kay Laala Zaaro`n Say,
Wohi Aab o Gill e Ira`n, Wohi Tabrez Hay Saaqi,

No Other Rumi hasĀ born againĀ in the gardens of Ajam (world other than Arab)
Same is the air & soil of Iran, Same is the Tabrez

Nahin Hay Naa Umeed Iqbal Apni Kisht e Veera`n Say,
Zara Namm Ho Tau Yea Matti Bohat Zarkhaiz Hay Saaqi

Iqbal isn’t hopless of his deserted land,
a little intent & this soil is very much fertile potent

<<forgive me for my pathetic translation>>

Middle East Crisis – General Musharraf’s New Ad-Venture

February 2, 2007

Recently, greatest American ally in the history Mr. General Musharraf has started his efforts to solve the Middle East Crisis thru his visionary ideas. What exactly he has in mind, is yet to be disclosed. Whether his recent trips would or wouldn’t yield any results is a separate issue – but he certainly has added a lots of burden on Pakistan’s economy as he has visited several countries of Arabian peninsula & to far east Asian countries like Indonesia & Malaysia.

Thru his statements on media, he has been depicting that Islamic World (if one exists) should get ready for a solution to Middle East Crisis & Islamic World would have to recognize Israel.

There are only 2 countries on the face of earth founded in the name of Religion – one is Israel and other one, you name it, is Pakistan.

What has Muslim world gained by not recognizing Israel? Nothing — What has non-Muslim states gained by recognizing Israel — a lot. for example, India, the enemy neighbour of Pakistan – has gained a lot by Pakistan’s enmity against Israel – what they say friend of enemy is an enemy – enemy of enemy is a friend.

Well Well, I started to write this blog to show my point of view regarding Musharraf’s recent efforts to solve the subject problem – but am ending up supporting him.

Yeah, the point which I had in mind is that – instead of addressing internal & external problems of Pakistan – why is so keen to be a hero by solving the issue which is not directly related to Pakistan?

Has his selected government and his chosen prime minister aka Short-Cut Aziz (Shaukat Aziz) addressed the economy? a BIG NO!!!

Has poverty vanished from Pakistan – the only Nuclear State in Islamic World?

Has everybody in Pakistan shelter, education, food, health facilities, bright future? NO…

Do we have democracy in Pakistan? the NAB (Nawaz-Altaf-Benazir) – 3 most popular leaders of the country are sitting outside Pakistan

People are dying due to hunger, shelter, by freezing cold in Oct-8’s earthquake hit areas

Then why to waste people’s money in something which has nothing to do with the things mentioned above.

Let’s see how things go – so far, Clinton tried to solve it – people received Nobel prizes and nothing was achieved – let’s how future folds itself.

paeywasta reh shajar say umeed e bahaar rakh – be hopeful of the dying tree to blossom in spring.
Cheers!
