The Nation called Pakistan

41

With passion in their hearts, they started the journey altogether. They emulated a path full of tumultuous situations. They suffered but remained successful. They proved to be undefeatable. They became a symbol of unity. Together they stood and became a Nation. One word but many voices. Pakistan zindabad was the utter whim and voice. The echoes of the same voice can still be heard. The history of the Muslims of sub-continent is full with the stories of sacrifice and passion. Another great phenomenon has a huge implementation grounds and immense power to convince yourself for something that otherwise seems an uphill task that is the passion of sacrifice. The purpose here is not to explain the definition or meanings of love and sacrifice as such passions can only be practice through loving someone or sacrificing the relation that actually runs in your blood. Here is again a very pivot fact; no doubt, love is a great force and binding relation having piousness, respect, reasons to abide and follow one path but in broader aspect sacrifice place itself above the passion of love. This element of sacrifice encourages you to lose your favourite thing or relation for sake of desire and happiness of some other person. You can sacrifice your own wishes and desires, your favourite accessories, book, and even your motif but when it comes to any relation, it really becomes difficult to opt sacrifice especially when that relation is of combination of binding force of Love. Sacrifice is an emotion having great power to impress others who may causing and developing reasons for that sacrifice. Muslims have a grandeur past and history full of sacrifices by the preachers of the religion, prophets, warriors and even those who didn’t directly participated in any war or event but they sacrificed in terms of their wealth, their basic necessities and even their blood relations. The Muslims of sub-continent also gone through the same situation whether its sacrifice or love for independence. Quaid the great charismatic leader of sub -continent was not only a person who guided the whole nation but he himself was a way forward towards prosperity and success of the Muslims of sub-continent. Being a true leader to his people, he had not only led them politically and strategically but also had provided them a vision. Pakistan and Quaid-e-Azam are the two words that always comes together in the history of sub-continent. In other words, both have become necessary for each other. Pakistan is the name and Quaid is the soul. Pakistan was the aim and Quaid was the seeker. Pakistan was the idea with complete ideology and Quaid was the animator. After a long struggle and several happenings eventually, the concept of two Nation Theory gained momentum and there came a moment when it was endorsed publicly. Quaid had the reputation of demolishing a well built up case with one sentence, and what match could be for him when it came to arguments. At all such occasions Fatima Jinnah abandoned logic for statement, and said, “But your life is precious, and you must take good care of it. Here Quad’s answer was noteworthy, “What is the health of one individual when I am with the very existence of ten crore Muslims of India? Do you realize how much is at stake? Ever since the League session in Lahore in 1940 in which the Pakistan resolution was passed he played a heavy toll with a smile. When Iqbal started to enlighten his fellows around in Sub-continent, the theory of Nationalism was merely an imported product to the realm of the Muslim politics. Iqbal being a Muslim ideologue scrutinized western philosophy and categorically condemned the Western Territorial Nationalism. He at many occasions made Muslims to realize that the western Philosophy of Nationalism is just a mirage to further distract the humanity. After a vigilant study, Iqbal made a fervent appeal against the Western notion of nationalism urging the Muslims to stay away from it. As a replacement for Western nationalism, he established the philosophy of “Cultural Nationalism” based on religion. In his letter written to Jawaharlal Nehru, Iqbal explained the nature of conflict between Nationalism and Islam. Iqbal wrote, “Nationalism in the sense of love of one’s country and even readiness to die for its honour is a part of the Muslim’s faith; it comes into conflict with Islam only when it begins to play the role of a political concept and claims to be a principle of human solidarity demanding that Islam should recede to the background of a mere private opinion and cease to be a living factor in the national life.” It is also pertinent to mention that earlier Iqbal appeared to be an Indian Nationalist who later became noticeable being a Pan Islamist. Pakistan resolution day is not merely a day to celebrate but a vision to emulate, the purpose to remember for which this country was created.
