Mr President, please stop For God’s Sake. Before taking
any step you must think once again. It is very sensitive issue.
You must consult your advisors and your conscience. But, be
careful, your advisors will give their suggestions seeing
your desire. They are more cautious about their future than
yours. They keep their benefit dearer than yours. If you call
night its a day, they will not deny but repeat your words.
They will see stars and moon in the sky in broad daylight.
If you will autumn, its spring they will call it spring. They
will see green trees with blooming flowers all around. And
if you will call spring, it’s autumn, they will see
trees without leaves everywhere. These people are slaves and
off-spring of slaves. They set their direction seeing the
trend of the power lobby. They never take decisions on the
basis of principles and ideologies.
Renowned Maharaja of Punjab, Ranjeet Singh,
was one day passing through a village. On the way he saw a
ready field of brinjal. He looked at a brinjal and shrank
his nose. He asked his minister, “What a funny vegetable
is it.” In reply the minister started counting the negative
aspects of that vegetable. Later, after few days, the Maharaja
once again passed through the same route. This time his mood
was people-friendly. So, he started praising brinjal. The
same minister accompanied him who spoke against the vegetable.
He saw the trend and started counting the advantages of brinjal.
Maharaja was surprised to see that his minister, the other
day, was cursing the vegetable, but in the next round he was
producing words of high praise for the vegetable which he
had disliked earlier. He asked his minister, what happened?
You had not praised it last time. The minister bent his head
and humbly mentioned, “My lord, I am your servant not
of the brinjal.”
So, Mr President, your advisors will never
come forward with the reality before you. They will continue
to second your thoughts. And this way they are justifying
their loyalty with you. Mr President, you should also not
be impressed by the columns, written by ‘pro-power lobby’
journalists. This is their style. They have sold their writing
to the power hungry people. They have mortgaged their journalistic
skills. Such journalists are physically here in Pakistan,
but mentally they are in Washington or Paris.
General Sahib, you must consult your conscience
instead of seeking advices from your ‘loyal advisors’.
You must not forget that the Holy Prophet, Mohammad Sallallaho
Alaihe Wasallum, has also advised to consult your conscience
before taking any big decision. He has said that when you
are not satisfied with what your are doing, you are committing
a sin. But, when you ask for the suggestion from your heart,
you get right advice. It is true that most of the time we
disagree to what our heart says and overwhelmed by emotions,
we kill our conscience. So, General Sahib. You are a Muslim.
You must understand that Qur’aan has stopped us from
moving forward to have friendship with Jews and Nazarenes.
The Holy Prophet has termed the blood of a Muslim as the honour
of Ka’aba. Allah Almighty has given you wisdom. You
should think, why America is putting a lot of pressure on
Pakistan to send troops to Iraq. Is it for the safety and
security of Iraqi people? Who Iraqis have a fear from? Are
they afraid of Saddam and his supporters? No, never. Iraqi
Muslim are not facing any danger.
It is America and its allied forces who see a danger. If this
danger is not seen to your advisors then advice them to have
their eyesight checked. The world media has accepted that
America is facing grave danger in Iraq. Not only the world
media, American commanders, who are in Iraq, are also saying
this. Each and every troop of allied forces has become the
sore of Iraqis’ eyes. Hatred for Americans and their
allies has reached its peak. Resistance against allied forces
is increasing with each passing day. Suicide attacks against
Americans have become a routine in Iraq. Mujahideen are fighting
the alien forces with greater courage. Not only Bush and Tony
Blair are highly concerned over the situation, but the entire
American and British nations are worried and so concerned.
They understand well the situation. They are thinking the
different ways. They see the false and baseless propaganda
against Iraq to launch military assault with suspicion. They
believe that their rulers had told them lies. American and
Britons have understood that Iraq neither had possessed nuclear
or biological weapons nor Saddam Hussain had become a threat
to the world peace. However, Bush was confident that Iraqis
would warmly welcome the allied forces to get rid of Saddam
Hussain and America would be able to befool Iraqis on the
basis of democracy and by showing them golden dreams of above
standard lifestyle. Bush had also thought that he would win
the sympathies of majority of Iraqis who are desirous of getting
rid of dictatorship. But, contrary to the fact, the situation
is against the apprehensions of Bush. Iraqis have not forgotten
the worst economic sanctions, America has imposed on Iraq
about 12 years back. They have not forgotten the hardship
they have faced due to these economic sanctions.
They are steadfast and will never bow before the America and
its allies to win a foreign support. Their operations, counter
attacks, and suicide attacks have proved that they committed
to eliminate the foreign forces from their land. With short
intervals they send the gifts of decomposed bodies of American
soldiers to President Bush. This situation has compelled Bush
to look towards India, Bangladesh, Turkey and Pakistan to
seek their help.
It is so thoughtful that India has totally
refused to consider American demand. However, Turkey has sent
its troops to Iraq while the statements of Pakistani rulers
show that they are also planning to follow the suit. Although,
this gesture of sending Pakistani troops to Iraq is being
termed a step forward to extend a helping hand to Iraqi people,
everybody knows that the purpose of sending troops to Iraq
is to protect the American and allied troops. This would ultimately
result into clash between Iraqi and Pakistan troops. In the
end the oppressor would remain well protected while oppressed
would bear the losses of life and resources. We must not forget
that the whole Muslim world, including Pakistan and Iraq,
is oppressed. In some countries, Muslims are subjecting the
brethren Muslims to injustices while in some Muslim dominated
areas, Muslims are falling victim to the non-Muslim policies
and injustice. But, General Sahib, you are the ruler of a
country which was founded on the basis of ‘Lailaha Illallah’.
You must not send Muslims troops to kill Iraqi Muslims who
look at you to come for their rescue not to kill them at the
behest of non-Muslim super power.
General Sahib, please think once again otherwise
you will find no way out to escape the hardest punishment
from Allah Almighty. All Muslims from Afghanistan to Southern
Waziristan, from Gilgit to Iraq, are the followers of the
Holy Prophet Mohammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallum. All Muslims
should be united against the non-Muslim world. We are not
in a position to pressurize you to change your decision, but
we can request you to reconsider your decision of sending
troops to Iraq.
