    History Repeats Itself…………..Shafiq Ahmad

     

    The creation of Pakistan was inevitable, due to the unavoidable indifferent political, religious, and socio- economic experiences of the British Empire in the Hindu dominated community.  Indeed, the Muslim freedom movement,was the upshot of persecution and besiege in the hands of Hindus. The mounting confrontations, and the evil of pariah within own land galvanized the sentiments of separate nationhood in the united India. These sentiments have become an idea in 1930s, and an ideal in 1940s, and a reality in 1947.

    .

    However, the Hindus of the subcontinent scarcely respect Muslims; and sabotaged the prospect of political cum economic participation and empowerment of the Muslims of the United India. The Hindus atrocities, and the British apathy to Muslim grievances labelled Muslim as political outclass.

    .

    Undoubtedly, it was fact accompli, after the constant annihilation of Muslim in Hindu dominancy, and fragile political experiences inside the subcontinent, to call for separate homeland for the Muslim of the unified India.

    .

    Nonetheless, it has become an ideal, and sine qua non, to heal the miseries of Muslims inside the unified India by creating Pakistan for the Muslim of the Subcontinent.

    .

    Moreover, it has in toto of disaster to sphere life in the Undivided India, for the Muslim in the foreseeable ambiance owing the orthodox and polarized society of Hindustan motivated by intolerance and exclusion within a society.

    .

    Similarly, the bandwagon of British to Hindu dominancy, and the well-entrenched influence upon the political discourse of the subcontinent by the Congress effected grave challenges during the partition of the unified India. Undoubtedly, the menace of territorial injustice and the apathy to ethnic affiliations in the united India by the British during partition have caused a catastrophic for the confluence of ethnicities in the post-colonial India.

    .

    Consequently, the recent Indian infinite border skirmishes reflects belligerency of aspiration from Hidutva philosophy. The BJP, in India, indeed, influenced by RSS mindset, of causing ethnic cleansing of Muslims inside India, and threatening the survival of immediate neighbor, named Pakistan. Yet, the recent obliteration of Muslim rights in India by Modhi government, and the unavoidable violation of the ceasefire agreement, on border, along the bellicose approach upon the innocent Kashmiris in the Indian Held Kashmir, equating the history of the undivided India under the British Raj.

    .

    So in general, the acquisition of an enviable position is too much challenging, and indeed, squarely revolve around determination and integrity.Luckily, we as a nation swiftly have acquired an independent and separate state by means of stupendous struggle and sacrifices. It has become a new lease of life for us to accomplish our aspirations.
