“Pakistan not only means freedom and independence but the Muslim Ideology which has to be preserved, which has come to us as a precious gift and treasure and which, we hope other will share with us. Pakistan is proud of her youth, particularly the students, who are nation builders of tomorrow. They must fully equip themselves by discipline, education, and training for the arduous task lying ahead of them“

Jinnah: The Man of the Hour
Much has been written about our Quaid, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, about the amazing leadership qualities that he possessed and the determination and strength with which he fought for the attainment of an independent State for the Muslims of the subcontinent. His personality and his grace won the admiration of friends and foes alike.
However, there is a section of Pakistani society that deems Jinnah irrelevant to the present day Pakistan and does not miss any opportunity to belittle the impact that this great man had on humanity. There is a reason for this charade; Jinnah is a threat to the self-proclaimed ‘democratically elected’ leaders of Pakistan who are steeped in corruption and nepotism. In the Pakistan of today, we see political parties loyal to ‘Quaid-e-Awams’, each focusing on their own particular mantra or slogan, each waving their own flag. The one leader who united us, who taught us the meaning of dignity and courage, is missing not only from the walls of the President House, but also from the hearts and minds of the sheeple who blindly follow these so called leaders. This particular section of society seems to think that Pakistan was created for the elite. The concern that Jinnah had for the Muslim Ummah, the very community that Pakistan was created for, has been set aside and the poor and downtrodden who in the words of Allama Iqbal were encouraged by Angels to ‘shake the foundations of society’ , have been forgotten. While the Pakistani elite continue to grow stronger through political alliances and inter-marriages, common Pakistanis are struggling to break away from this stranglehold.
Presenting a beautiful dialogue between Allama Iqbal and Maulana Rumi (Peer o Mureed) from his book Baal-i-Jibreel at the 71 st death anniversary of Iqbal (RA) being observed across the country.
His poetry enables us to understand the message of Quran and the path of our beloved prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessing of Allah upon Him). We hope all will get a chance to learn something new from this poem.
In the recent months, a number of young people have come forward expressing their desire to serve Pakistan. This is extremely encouraging, and inspite of all the difficult times ahead, Zaid sahib is very confident that our nation has great potential to face all kinds of situations.
If you have listened to Zaid sahib’s programs, you may have noticed that he heavily stresses the importance of the ideology of Pakistan. First and foremost, it is very important for our younger generation to identify itself with Pakistan, understand our history and place in this world, and reclaim our national identity and pride. Pakistan will insha Allah serve as a stepping stone in the renaissance of the Ummah, and we must understand and participate in this mission.
Once this ideological direction has been established in the minds and hearts of our young people, there are a number of ways of actually contributing and participating for Pakistan’s development, and we do not want to restrict your options by recommending any one specific way. e.g. you can remit your zakat and charitable donations to philaphtronic organizations back home. You can see how your professional skills can be used for the benefit of Pakistan. You can act as guardians of our national ideology and interests in your sphere of influence, and not let any false propaganda and disinformation come in the way. Also, you can keep yourself ready to serve this country as and when the motherland needs you.
But perhaps most important of all, it is important for each of us to educate ouselves on strategic national issues, and be able recognize the external and domestic threats that we face, and learn how we can work in unison to overcome them. This is the specific task that Zaid sahib and BrassTacks has taken up: To create awareness in our people on key issues, and provide thought-leadership to our nation by guiding them on how to react and overcome the difficulties that we face today. This is very important, and Pakistanis overseas can help us by spreading this message among the expatriate community, so we can act as guardians of our national resources and defence. You can do this by letting other people know about the issues and their solutions which Zaid sahib has proposed in his lectures. Once we all get an understanding of these issues, we, as a nation, can constructively influence the decision makers on adopting the correct stance on foreign, economic and domestic policy.
PKKH Management: Please forward this message to your friends, family, colleagues. We must spread the message among the expat community.
