In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh
I sincerely believe that my “Deobandi” companions have reduced the issue of Imran Khan & PTI down to conspiracy theories about Jewish agendas and Qadiyanees. The “Deobandi” discourse is at a pathetically low level because they are catering for the intellectual capacity of low level “Deobandi” foot soldiers.
It is a grave danger which generations of Pakistanees will pay for because Imran Khan & PTI should be held accountable for the damage they are doing and it has very little to do with Jewish conspiracy theories.
It is deeply regrettable and tragic.
The “Ulama” should set an example and lead people and be sincere (as per the Sunnah) and sincerity means that we should be eager to make Islah of people and giving them room for reformation,
Imran Khan is a sincere individual and he should be “guided” not abused and vilified wrongly because slander and accusations will make a person turn away in hate and not concentrate on reformation (Islah).
Democracy & Pakistan:
It is STUPID and RIDICULOUS to try to enforce democracy in Pakistan. The very foundation of Pakistan is “Anti-democracy”.
Congress (verbally) agreed to give Muslims proportional in India post-independence and Muhammad Ali Jinnah (RA) and others rejected it and opted for Pakistan.
They felt that due to overwhelming number of Hindus, a democratic India will NEVER safeguard the rights of Muslims and ultimately Muslims (of India) will suffer.
Today in 2019, it is clear that creation of Pakistan was the right call.
- Creation of Pakistan was in opposition of democracy.
- Sustaining of Pakistan will also have to be in opposition of democracy.
Democracy will NOT WORK in Pakistan. There is nothing you can do about making democracy in Pakistan, it is foolhardy and stupid. The quicker this sham of democracy is thrown from Pakistan the better.
Ideology of Pakistan:
The ideology of Pakistan is purely Islamic. Before constitution, objectives resolution of Pakistan clearly states this ideology and it states:
- Sovereignty of the entire Universe belongs to Allah alone.
- Authority should be delegated to the State trough its people under the rules set by Allah.
The speech given while introducing the “Objectives Resolution” is even more profound and should be etched in the memory of every Pakistani.
Bangladesh vs Pakistan:
This section might make a lot of our brothers from Bangladesh upset but the truth has to be told. The complaint of (Bangali) Muslims with Pakistan and the raison d'être for the creation of Bangladesh was “economic” and not ideological. The “Bangali” Muslims felt that money was not distributed correctly and “East Pakistan” was lagging behind in economic progress which led to resentment and eventually to independence & creation of “Bangladesh”.
Since its independence Bangladesh has made praiseworthy economic progress and it should be lauded for it. However, Bangladesh has lost its ideological and Islamic tilt. It has sacrificed its ideology for economic progress.
Riyasat-e-Madina of Imran Khan:
Riyasat = State
I made my feeling clear from the beginning about Imran Khan’s concept of Riyasat-e-Madina and how it is fully fundamentally different to the Riyasat-e-Madina of Nabi Muhammad (Sallalaho Alaihe Wassallam). This was (deliberately) ignored or not understood by “Deobandees” as it is easier to make people understand Jewish conspiracy theories and Qaiyani connections then deep rooted issues.
- The Riyasat-e-Madina of Nabi Muhammad (Sallalaho Alaihe Wassallam) was ideological i.e. the ideology of Islam and emphasis on Eemaan was the foremost consideration.
- The Riyasat-e-Madina of Imran Khan is a socio-justice concept with emphasis on rooting out corruption, strengthening state institutions and improving economy.
Imran Khan is disciplined, dedicated and committed and he may achieve his objectives. The signs are that Pakistan (from the concept of modern states) is heading in the right direction and the early economic indicators are also good.
However, Riyasat-e-Madina of Imran Khan is at odds with Riyasat-e-Madina of Nabi Muhammad (Sallalaho Alaihe Wassallam) with Tawheed and Sunnah being second fiddle. This is a grave error and strikes at the very foundations of Pakistan.
There are always forces which wish to weaken and degrade the Islamic ideology of Pakistan and weaken the Eemaan of Muslims.
I feel that “Deobandees of Pakistan” by making silly mistakes, ridiculous comments have left an open opportunity for the Secularists to target Islam and its commandments. The right spotlight and scrutiny should be intensely focused on Imran Khan (and by extension upon PTI) but the narrative has been substandard and below par. Corruption will decrease and state efficiency will increase so the (poor narrative) of the “Deobandees” will ultimately backfire. The “Deobandees” were given power in other provinces and they failed to deliver. Common public of Pakistan will judge Imran Khan Government against the “Deobandi” provincial Government and there is no doubt that Imran Khan Government is better (in delivering basic public services), Pushtuns led the way in opposing “Deobandees” in KPK and people of Pakistan repeated it (nationally), the next elections may even be worse for Deobandees. It is clear that many “Deobandees” Ulama (in Karachi and elsewhere) are backing Imran Khan due to his Anti-corruption initiatives so the street power of Deobandees is split, disorganised and disintegrated.
In the next 30-60 days, Imran Khan will replace many in his cabinet and I am certain that Imran Khan Government will deliver better than others in Pakistan but unless something changes, the ideological underpinnings of Pakistan may be irrevocably damaged. The enemies of Islam will even support it because an Islamically weaker but economically stronger Pakistan is in their interest.
This is my biggest concern about Imran Khan & PTI which highlighted right from the beginning. It gives me no pleasure!
