Historical and intellectual fallacies of the “righteous”
Haider Javed Syed
A few friends asked for an explanation about a sentence written in the last few columns, “Faith on hearsay”. They do not make a conscious effort, nor have they ever touched a book throughout their life. Just because our father used to say that if Bhutto broke the country, he would have broken it completely, why would he lie?
The righteous people of Jamaat-e-Islami are very angry about the last two columns. The way they are cursing and abusing my student on the social media site Tutor, I am satisfied that their hypocrisy has been pierced.
The Bengalis of East Pakistan are collective criminals except for a few individuals in West Pakistan, but the Jamaat-e-Islami, the then military leadership, and the Muslim League are the major culprits.
Hold on for a second, I have questions for you regarding a few matters before partition (I write it as partition).
The first question is why, from 1936 to 1947, the Muslim League did not organize any meeting of the Central Majlis-e-Amaila and the Central Council in Dhaka, despite several requests from its Bengal provincial unit.
The second question is why the Bengal Muslim League did not participate in the 1936 meeting of the All India Muslim League in Bombay. Although, in this meeting, Muslim League decided to contest the election of provincial assemblies.
More questions are as follows: Muhammad Ali Jinnah announced the 54-member Central Parliamentary Board of All India Muslim League on May 21, 1936. Why was the President and Secretary of the Bengal Muslim League not included in it?
Why were there 4 non-Bengali among the eight members of the Central Parliamentary Board that Jinnah appointed from Bengal? In June of the same year, the meeting of the Central Parliament Board was held in Lahore, and out of the 8 members of Bengal, 2 members participated and both were non-Bengali. In 1937, Jinnah established a twenty-member committee to reconstitute the Bengal Muslim League, what happened?
All India Muslim League Secretary, Honorary Secretaries and Joint Secretary were always taken from UP.
Let me clarify that the Muslim League meeting held in Calcutta in 1938 was a special meeting and not an annual meeting. The last question in this series is whether Muhammad Ali Jinnah was nominated as the Governor General by the All India Muslim League General Council or Majlis Ameela. In this context, why did Liaquat Ali Khan and others ridicule the proposal of the Bengal Muslim League?
Is it not true that Jinnah himself preferred the position of Governor General for himself and nominated himself?
I repeat one question again and again, that is why the central positions of the All India Muslim League were occupied by the Nawabs of the Muslim minority provinces? It should be noted that Dr. Saifuddin Kuchlu is a single example from outside UP.
If you consider the above questions, then it will become twofold that the All India Muslim League is being unequally treated by the Bengalis, who are not tired of calling them the vanguard of the Pakistan Movement. Is this all without the will of the leaders of the Muslim League? What happened?
Our real tragedy study of Pakistan is full of falsehoods and sunken. These historical and intellectual fallacies could have been saved if a National Historical Commission had been formed in our country immediately after the establishment of Pakistan. The “History Commission” could not be formed because the Muslims of the Muslim minority provinces of United India did not have any personality to meet the criteria of a hero (that too of their own making), so they were forced to the Mughals. They were calling the period Islamic rule, recognizing Abdali, Nadir Shah, Ghori, Ghaznavi, and Muhammad Bin Qasim as heroes.
Bengalis, Sindhis, Pashtuns, and even Punjabis and Saraikis had their own resistance roles against them, but they were skillfully portrayed as brigands, outlaws, and rebels in accordance with British thinking. For example, Sardar Ahmad Khan Kharl, Hosh Mohammad Sheedi, and Ajab Khan Afridi are examples. When you raise a dialogue on history, the self-made history will scatter like straws and the idols of fake heroes will be broken.
Now let’s talk about the political claim of Jamaat-e-Islami that “Pakistan’s dream was seen by Allama Iqbal”, intellectual food was provided by Syed Maududi and Jinnah Sahib took him to the destination.
The first thing is that Allama Iqbal did not see any dream nor did he describe it. Jinnah Sahib was the head of the Muslim League. It is a pity that there can be no analysis and dialogue on him as the head of the Muslim League in this country because we make the leader an avatar by drawing a halo of sanctity around him and chanting slogans of punishment for blasphemy.
Let’s have a taste of Syed Maududi’s intellectual food.
In Syed Maududi’s book “Tehreek Azadi Hind aur Musalman” published under the auspices of Islamic Publications, an organization that publishes books of Jamaat-e-Islami, Syed Maududi writes (Jannat al-Humqa) about his dreams of living in the “Paradise of Fools”. How many people are looking at the green garden, but independent Pakistan (if it is actually created) will necessarily be built on the theory of a democratic Ladin state?
In the same book, he goes on to write that “The goal is the truth, for which we think it is better to die while running towards it than to waste our energy knowingly in wrong but easy ways or with ignorance.” “Waste your strength to achieve ‘fool’s paradise’ (Pakistan)”.
