Narcissism, a Big No for any leadership !

In the first week of March, when Karachi was approaching its colourful tea festival, Mustafa Kamal returned to Karachi from Dubai. Mustafa Kamal is not an unknown name, especially in Karachi, where he was the City Nazim from 2005-2010. He was nominated to this post by the Muttahida Qaumi Movement and was affiliated with the party for almost 28 years. He left the party when he was serving as MQM senator in the Pakistan senate.

This blog has been written by one of my friend, who asked me to upload on my blog, and requested not to share his name. 

Ever since Mustafa Kamal came back to Karachi and held a press conference announcing his unnamed political party, the Pakistani media has been banging the drum round the clock about his arrival and his dissent from the MQM. For many, including myself, Mustafa Kamal was a figure who changed the face of the city of Karachi for the better. We, the millennials of Karachi, idolised and loved him. However, his latest tirade against the MQM and its chief simply seems to be something that is not genuine. I know I will be developing quite an opposition to my ideas but at least let me explain in good faith why I have an opinion like that.
Mustafa Kamal’s statement regarding his conscience not allowing him to stay in the quiet regarding MQM’s activities seems to be hollow because of four simple reasons.

Who is Perverted??

Once again PTI’s followers were criticizing Altaf Hussain’s speech mostly on social media. It made me curious that what latest Altaf Hussain has said which lead to an outcry on electronic and social media. Successfully I found his speech of 16th February 2016, which he delivered to his workers and office bearers at his party headquarter famously known as Nine Zero.

If we watch the video, about 9:30 minutes into the video, he pointed towards the humble beginning of all human beings by quoting the verse 13th of Chapter 49 of Holy Quran which is “Surah Hujurt”.

ISIS is not Islam

My 15 year old high schooler said that soon we will start the unit about “Islam” in history, but now I don’t want to do it. The reason behind her uncomfortable feeling was a statement made by one of her classmate, when he said that they are going to learn the unit about “ISIS”, the terrorist organization. The student who said this wasn’t Muslim. I advised her to ignore the comments.  It was equally disturbing for both of us, as I remember saw her very sad about the San Bernardino attack, which took lives of 14 innocent Americans.

Freedom of Speech is the foundation of a civilized society

MQM leader Altaf Hussain is facing ban on speeches and statement in Pakistan. The ban is imposed on electronic and print media due to his bold speeches against the law enforcement agencies involved in extra judicial killings in Karachi.  The question is, if such a ban is even constitutional in any democratic system? No. Constitution of Pakistan, Article 19 (freedom of Speech) says;

                            Every citizen shall have the right to freedom of speech and expression, and there shall be freedom of the press, subject to any reasonable restrictions imposed by law in the interest of the glory of Islam or the integrity, security or defense of Pakistan or any part thereof, friendly relations with foreign States, public order, decency or morality, or in relation to contempt of court, [commission of] or incitement to an offence”.

How many more Bismas will be buried in Pakistan?

On December 23rd, a 10 months old baby girl, Bisma, died outside Civil hospital of Karachi.  According to media reports, she died due to VIP protocol, given to Bilawal Zardari on the inauguration ceremony of trauma center in the above mentioned hospital of Karachi. Many Pakistanis condemned this heart breaking incident on social media and other political parties showed their remonstrated against it. But unfortunately, this is not the first incident happened due to VIP protocol, in past, the nation has faced many such incidents. But no legislation against VIP protocol, which block traffic or people's movement, had ever been done either by civil government or by military dictatorship.

Achievements of Nizami family in the the advancement of education in Karachi

Remembering and understanding the sacrifices of Imam Hussain (AS)

امام حسین علیہ السلام کی قربانی اور اس کی بقا. 

شب عاشور، امام بارگاہ میں مجلس عزا سنتے ہوے ایک ہی بات ذہن میں  آرہی تھی کہ امام حسین علیہ السلام کی قربانی کو دنیا کس حد تک سمجھ سکی ہے. آج سوشل میڈیا پہ لو گ زور و شور سے عزاداری اور ماتم کے طریقوں پہ تنقید تو بہت کرتے ہیں مگر کیا ان کو امام کی قربانی کا وہ مقام سمجھ آیا جو الله نے ان کو عطا کیا تھا؟ امام حسین کا نام آج دنیا کے کونے کونے میں اپنے اپنے طریقے سے لیا جا رہا ہے، یہ  وہ ہی مظلوم امام تھے جن کو شہید کرنے کے بعد دفن و کفن تک نہیں دیا گیا تھا. آج لوگ عزاداری کو  اپنے اپنے طریقے سے ادا  کرتے ہیں ، کوئی سینہ کوبی کرتا ہے تو کوئی اپنے بچے کو زنجیر زنی کی شروع سے ہی تربیت دیتا ہے .  اور ان ہی رسومات پہ اعتراض کرنے والے کچھ لوگ یہ بھول جاتے ہیں کہ امام عالی کا مقام کیا تھا  اور کیا  ہے ؟ ان کی قربانی کو نماز کے بچاؤ تک  محدود کرنے والوں کو کیا علم  ہے کہ اہل اسلام کو امام توحید کا کون سا سبق دیکر گئے ہیں ؟ اسلام کی ہر عبادت کا آغاز جب ہی ہوتا ہے جب کہ آپ کا توحید پے پختہ ایمان ہو .
