JEETI RAHO, RUBINA BETI. I ENJOYED YOUR ARTICLE WITH TEARS IN MY EYES AT THE FATE OF THE POOR IN PAKISTAN.
I AM A MAN OF 85, ONE WHO STRUGGLED FOR PAKISTAN, PASSED THROUGH THE MOMENTS SEEING THE DEATH AND LIFE TOGETHER WITH NO DISTANCE BETWEEN THE TWO, CAME TO PAKISTAN, DEVOTED THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE TO BUILD IDEAL PAKISTAN IN MY CAPACITY AS HEAD OF A BRANCH OF ONE PRESTIGIOUS ORGANIZATION OF PAKISTAN, AND NOW MY DEAR BETI, IT IS MY FATE TO SEE WHATEVER YOU ARE SEEING SITTING FAR AWAY FROM YOUR DEAR COUNTRY. THE ORGANIZATION WHICH WAS ONCE NURTURED BY THE BLOOD OF YOUTH AT THAT TIME IS NOW DOOMED AND BREATHING ITS LAST IN THE HANDS OF CORRUPTED PEOPLE. HOWEVER BEING AN ORDINARY STUDENT OF IQBAL'S SCHOOL I HAVE NOT LOST HOPE. I HAVE FULL FAITH IN ALMIGHTY ALLAH THAT HE WILL SAVE PAKISTAN AND REVIVE THAT COUNTRY THROUGH STRONG HANDS OF UN-CORRUPT PEOPLE.

Salaams,

Just read your column about Sheikh Saadi's cat and our country's situation. The column depicts our political situation and our national apathy to the dot. You are very right in saying that one's mind and senses become totally numb seeing all this injustice and zulm spread all around us. It is indeed our government and the army of Ministers, Ministers of State, MNAs, MPAs, Senators, Secretaries, etc. which is responsible for the majority of the expenses and power consumption. And yet it is the awam, the poor, already crushed masses who are asked to sacrifice, time and time again. What we need is a revolution in this country.. which will come for sure. This kind of injustice can't go on forever.

Aisey columns likhti rahein.. sirf inko parhney waley logon ki zaroorat hai..

Thanks for your article ROSHNI

More than two decades ago Suzuki car manufacturing plant was inaugurated at Karachi in Pakistan .At that occassion an interview was held with Mr. Osamo Suzuki ,The chairnan ,of Japan enterprise.A question was raised by a Pakistani journalist like it
"Sir!The Suzuki Company Japan has been in dialogues with India for setting up a car plant in India too but that has not been finalised yet while here in Pakistan the negotiation were started after wards & all the things /settlement has been done very soon .What is the reason ?"
Mr Osamo Suauki reply was not satisfactory

However after a few days an article was published in evening newspaper STAR of Karachi.The writer in that article shed light in detail about the Indian Suzuki car manufacturing Plant of India . According to writer of newspaper the Indian authorities had demanded certain things as

(a)Certain spare parts would be supplied for a long time. Even if Japan stopped the manufacturing of those spare parts ,the Suzuko Japan would be bound to supply those parts to India

(b)The design of certain parts would not be changed & would be supplied unaltered for a certain time period (so that India could manufacture those parts by itself )

Being an automobile engineer of Bela Engineers Hab Chauki Karachi ,i was surprised to see those conditions because one friend of mine working at NAYA DAUR MOTORS had told me strange story of NAYA DAUR MOTORS Karachi which was published in Dawn Karachi later on too. He told that with hard working ,engineers of NAYA DAUR MOTOR succeded in manufacturing the bonnet of ISUZU trucks in Pakiatan & they made programme to install the same in next batch of ISUZU trucks. But in the mean time the design of engine was modified by Japan & the old one bonnet was not useful to newly designed engine.Alas all efforts went in vain & self dependency of manufacturing truck parts also went in the air.

In those days a drama was telecasted from Lahore wherein it was told that people of certain village obtained skill of manufacturing certain part (plough--HAL in urdu ) of a tractor . But in the mean time the the importer of that tractor decided to import certain other design of tractor which had altogether a new type of plough.The skilled men (MISTARI) of that village became jobless again for some times

All those things draws my attention towards the matters of contract agreement ---the difference of agreements which are done in India & which are done in Pakistan

Madam,
While I enjoyed reading your piece on Dubai, this one made me feel uneasy. I see the Sania-Shoaib affair as a union between two young celebrities who had unhappy previous relationships. As for the popular and spontaneous reaction among the Pakistanis, it will pass. So the euphoria is really a short lived escape from the problems of every day existence.
The lack of good governance is endemic to the Third World. Corruption is a national trait in Pakistan. Indecision is a hallmark of the South Asian society. Kalabagh dam will remain a pipe dream. Other solutions will have to be found but the outlook is bleak. But why deny the folks a little celebration.

Thereafter that almost 800 yrs of golden era of Muslim advancement and enlightenment what happened? Did all Muslim Mothers suddenly stopped reproducing intellects scholars thinkers and knowledge seekers? If it isn't true than when was the last time we invented something? And When & what was our last contribution to human civilization? These questions are painful but logical which are generally asked by critiques of today within and across our society. But having no answer i have no choice but to divert and forward all these important questions towards all those dead & alive ordinary & extra ordinary Muslim Scholars / Scientists / Specialists / educationists / medical professionals / technicians / experts / entrepreneurs / Lawyers / politicians who within their individual & collective capacity directly & indirectly but very effectively & instrumentally contributed and applied their personal qualification / potential of knowledge & expertise talents & skills along with their resources to strengthen the charters of those European American Institutions now ruling the politics & economy of Muslim world be it Pakistan be it UAE. Merely in their own personal interest of better quality of life for themselves for their spouses and for their children , All those brilliant seasoned potential and intelligent sons & daughters of their own soil abandoned their homeland to serve the purpose of all others but not their own motherlands just on a glory that that they are contributing in reserves of foreign exchange.
All this happened as if it was destined but considering the mix and steady dumping of intelligent manpower in America Canada Europe and other developed parts of the world it was much planned and organized by those Brain collectors of European, American institutions & money merchants. Living conditions through socio economic and political upheavals. disorders and sabotages in weaker but potentially richer states (like Pakistan) when made intolerable than the brain drain floodgate towards the advantages of economically socially and politically powerful and stable states became obviously automated. Resultantly back homes the gap of intellect & intelligent minds widened in miles. The soils turned barren and made in capable to produce anything applicable. in any walk & character of life be it economy be it society be it politics.

Dear Rubina Sahiba – I just went through your ‘life in Dubai,’ article. I agree with your assessment from A to Z. Your depiction of U.S. Canada, Dubai, Pakistan, and India etc brings in my mind that super hit Pakistani television drama serial in which renowned PTV artist, Shakeel Saheb, played the role of an architectural engineer called ‘Faizan’. Unfortunately, I forgot the name of the drama. Anyway, in the final moments of the last episode, when Shakeel Saheb decides to leave the town which he had raised from ground zero, the clerk at the train station inquires where he would like to go. Shakeel Saheb requests him for a ticket so he could go anywhere. Because he was not quite sure about his destination.

The clerk comes up with this billion $ answer, ‘Jahan jaayein gey wohe Aasmaan ho ga, aur wohe zameen hoge, phir bhi bay zamini ka ehsaas ho ga.’

My younger brother, Dr. Irshad Ahmed, also visited Dubai in the recent past and his views are similar to yours as well. 

Sincerely

Anis

Dear Ms. Rubina,

Dear Ms. Rubina,
Your column on Aurat is very balanced and moderate. The Arabic word Aurat (Woman) means a concealed entity. The traditional religions conceal the body of the woman while the modern Western cultures reveal the body of woman. The former makes woman like an animal and the latter like a show piece. How sad it is that even for the sale of an underwear the ladies are shown naked in the news papers and magazines.
I will discuss this topic in detail soon. Your approach is excellent.
 
With warm wishes,

Dear Rubina,
 
It is a good article but it is a very DRY, CRUDE  as well as  a CONTROVERSIAL topic. Majority of the women would not be able to digest it.
 
I suggest that you now write and advise on the role of a Pakistani woman who has migrated to Canada and will not be going back to Pakistan. Show as to how a balanced Pakistani family should behave and maintain its identity while moving in the Main Stream. Hijab, Shalwar-Qamees and Azaan + Namaz-ba-Jamat, do not impress non Muslims but your gentle behaviour, your "care - for - others", your respect for the Local Laws, will make you AGREEABLE CITIZENS and attract other communities to join you.
 
You are,  being an Immigration Consultant, in a far better position to advise on this subject than other lady-writers.

Dear Rubina,
Per my information Dr. Afia Siddiqui was involved in helping and advising terrorists.  It may be wrong information but according to Mr. Hussain Haqqani, the ambassador of Pakistan , the American government has sufficient proofs of her involvement. I don't think she was arrested without any reason. We should not politicize this case. Let it be on merit. The American courts are independent and I have faith in their credibility.  She is in jail for five years and had enough. I wish she is now pardoned for her faults. Let she be shown mercy. She has suffered much.  No body should have sympathies with the religious extremists and terrorists. They are illiterate hard liners who are a naked threat to faith and humanity. May God be kind to her and to us all. Amen

Hello Rubina,
 
AoA. I salute you for writing this piece, which shows the pain you feel about this unfortunate affair involving Dr. Afia. Unfortunately, not only our politicians but our so called "newly liberated" media has failed miserably to highlight and expose what really has happened. I personally wrote to newspapers editors and big-name anchors to take up the issue in the Pak press, which of course, fell on deaf ears. It was shocking to see the muffled reporting in our media back home.
 
Your article covering Imran Khan was also to the mark. It is dilemma for me that the same people who give long lectures on corruption of our politicians, shun Imran for being too straight, which they equate with being stupid. Thank you for expressing the real issues with such clarity and boldness.
 
With warm personal regards.

HI,Rubina,
          Thanks for your concern for Dr. Afia. I sympathies with her from the core of my heart. However, I will like to know her real and complete story. Could you ,kindly , publish that?
Regards,
Saeed Rahmani.

Dear Rubina - I live outside the U-S capital Washington DC since 1970. I do not agree with those who say that Aafia's indictment is a proof of judicial bias and with Aafia who reportedly said that the ruling had come from Israel and not from America. Aafia has been indicted not by "U-S Courts" but by a jury of 8 women and 4 men - commoners from Manhatten, NY. Those 12 Americans could not be possibly purchased by Israel or any other power. Judge Burman had influence over them only to the extent of educating them about the relevant law. Zealots like Aafia suffer more when they refuse paid or government legal aid and try to defend themselves by making emotional statements. I know another Pakistani who did it and still incarcerated. I heard a sister and mother of Aafia speaking over an Urdu TV channel and predicting the "downfall" of America with the indictment. Why did she tell jury the lie that she had not obtained shooting course at an academy in Boston against the advice of her lawyers? However I sympathies with the smart lady who obtained a PhD.
from MIT. She might have been a victim of Musharraf's bounty hunters who were rounding up every suspicious person and selling him/her to 9/11 stung Americans at the time Aafia disappeared. The roll of her estranged husband, Amjad Khan, should also be investigated who divorced Aafia after discussing the matter with his in-laws that caused the heart failure of her father. For 5 years Aafia was a "disappeared" case and for 18 months she was target of brutal investigation that would shake every sane person. Akmal Shah

Dear Rubina Sahibah,

 

Your article Bhoot makes use of the term, “Taliban” without identifying and separating the Afghans (who are fighting against the invaders) from the TTP thugs from Pakistan’s FATA region. The lack of the essential distinction between the two creates a rather negative connotation for the genuine Taliban. The thugs from FATA who call themselves the Taliban are stealing and misusing the identification only to confuse the people of Pakistan and the rest of the world and serving the American and Indian interests in the region.

 

I realize that the Taliban (I do not mean the TTP thugs here) are backward people. But they are not any more backward than the rest of the Afghan population that is not identified as the Taliban. To me a backward nation that does not harm any one is more acceptable than the technologically advanced people like the Americans, British and many other who make up the NATO forces. What good are the so called developed and advanced nations that go around kill innocent people by the millions only to serve their geo-political plans.

 

If there is a Bhoot around, it is the imperial forces from the advanced nations causing all sorts of problems around the globe.  There will be no peace in Afghanistan-Pakistan region until the Anglo-American Bhoots are removed from that area.

I find your dish worth tasting, because it is unique, deep and symbolic. Symbolic poetry is normally thought-provoking.

ASSALALAM ALAIKUM
I received your article through e mail--Nearly every aspect of HOPE has been discuuesed which encourages a man in difficulty & may  get reached a person to peak of success which otherwise was not possible.
  Then i saw  the same published in Sunday MUQADMA Karachi.
 
Usually people say that the life of a newspaper column is of one day , the next day the new newspaper is published and people forget that column. But i do  not of agree the said view point. A GOOD thing is never forgotten & people of old days used  to cut the column & always remember the same by cutting  of that  column & to be used as reference in future. I can give   example  of such ossasions.
AND by chance it proved interestingly just to day.Ya --indeed --You are seeing that my e mail is associated with e mail of Sagheer Ahmed  .He  is my elder brother. He was talking with my daughter on telephone & suddenly he said during talking that he would send to her (my daughter )  a very impressive article.
Then Bhai jan  started talking with me & told about this very article"...MOHABAT ,UMEED" under discussion & said that  Rubina Faisal 's articles are always thougt provoking ----i laughed   & told  all about you & asked him to send one copy of mail which he has sent to you .So same is attached herewith.
 
Bhai Jan has been in the army but he then joined various private corporations after leaving army. He has  been once  the only Pakistani director in Pak Suzuki plant otherwise all others were Japanese.

Salam.
abhi mene ap ka colum parha jo apne velentine per likha..
i respect ur views. ap ne likha k mohabbat to poore saal mein hoti hai.. tu phr aik din kiiun..
doosri bat ye mam k i dont know ap kis jagah se belong kerti hain.. i m from rawalpindi.. or mene dekha hai jo valentine per hota hai.. baat mohabat tak ho tu theek hai.. choti chote bache matric k or choti choti 9th ki bachian. is velentine ki promotion ki wajaha se .. pata nahi kya kuch kerte hain or naam mohabbat ka hota hai.. movies, media in sab ki wajha se un ko mohabbat ka nahi maloom.. or movies ki mohhabat ka tu ap ko pata hi ho ga..
well mene mohababt ki hai i know the feelings of luv, i still luv her even she is married ,, but mohabaat k lye lazmi nahi hai k doosrsa banda ap se mohabbat keray tu phr ap us se mohabbat kerain, milna na milna tu aik alag cheez hai  or mohhabat aik alag cheez na milain phr bhi mohabbat tu rehti hai  ,.. but ye jo 9th k bache or bachian kerti hain ,, net clubs mein date per jana.. kisi k ghar date per jana.. wat do u think k ye mohababt hai.. its not like that.. ye isi velentine ki promotion k hi consequences hain.. is wajah se log is k against hain.. baki mohhaabat ko tu sab mante hian,, ye jo ALLAH k wali hain, ye mohababt hi mein tu griftar hote hain, but in ki mohabbat kisi valentine ki mohtaaaj nahi.. her din in ka valentine hota hai..bus apne ALLAH ki mohababt mein gum rehte hian.. agar isi din mein behan bhai ki mohababt ki promotion ho,, maa baap ki mohabbat ki promotion ho.. apne ALLAH se mohababt ka izhar kya jaye tu kitna acha ho..
 
Hope mera message ap tak convey ho gya ho ga..simply ye hai,, k jo log against hain un ko bhi dekhain k kiun hain..ap history ko ignore ker rahi hain..but sahi cheez jan ne k lye history ka knowledge lazmi hai bcoz without knowledge common sence limited ho jati hai.. sirf us had tak limited jahan tak hamain knowledge hota hai..
 
ham namaz kiun parthe hain.. kiun k farz hai.. but aik non muslim ko farz or haram halal ka nahi bata.. us ko explain kerne k lye ilm chahaye.. klhair ye topic se hatne ki baat hai..kehna ka maqsad hai..one has to b neutral to know the views of both...
 
last mein Islam... dekahin mam Islam sirf us cheez se manna kerta hai jis k consequences negetive hoon.. or jo allama karam bethte hain kisi masle per fatwa lagate hain SAHI ya GHALAT ka tu wo isi base me lagate hain k is k consequenses kya hain..
mujhe aik dafa ramzan mein eyes ka problem huwa, doctor ne eye drops dye. ab roza ki hallat mein drops daloon ya na daloon,, mene aik mufti sahab se poocha unho ne kaha k agar drops k through stomach tak jaati hai tu na use kya jaye lekin ye doctor hi bita sakta hai k ye drop kis route se jaati hai or kahan jati hai jism mein.. so unho ne khud se kuch nahi kaha .. balke bitya k doctor ki raye k baad hi pata chal sakta hai.. is tarah ..ab valentine day ki baat lain .. or is k consequences dakhain.. or khud se sochain k mohababt k naam per jo hota hai.. kya wo theek hai ya ghalat ap ko meri itni lambi garadan ka lub e lubab samajh a jaye ga..

The article  has  a mutual  linkage  of sentences & you  are  sucessfull in making theses linkages on such a way that one does not feel  any  jerk----even a slight jerk --- & it is not on every writer control --You have sucessfully weaved these sentences
congratulations---
I had read the "afsanas"  of Rajinder Singh bedi in very remote past ----The sentence of his novel has   recalled me /compelled me to go to those afasanas/novels  again---
 
As  far as confidence in the eyes of Naveed  Asif is concerned --i do not know whether it is there or not----If it is there ,then one shuold try  to keep it alive so that he can compete the world -----The non giving of seat by elders to this brilliant child is an effort to destroy the confidence ----
Let us consider  that this boy be  chief of Pakistan in future -- i am saying to consider because here in Pakistani democracy style  political parties are developning a new phenomena of democracy that chair for chief of political party remain  between father to daughter & then to son --
 
After development of this right considering we come to the stage of hope-

Dear Abbasi sahib, please accept my greetings from Finland.

Thanks for sharing the just thoughts; as they are the real catalyst, actions are stronger than words but cause always supersedes the effect and writers are divine in a way they stimulate or catalyze the effect by inducing their thoughts into minds.

It reminds me a good saying, "The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one". The same goes for the intellects like you, keep it up.

THANKS----Actually two days or three days back  i was  thinking that no  information of new  MAZMOON has been received to me by  u  ----so i myself  opened your website & found  the same, It is indeed a worth reading ----Then i was thinking to talk about it to Zubair Sahib  of MUQADAMA bit on the same day it had appeared in MUQADAMA---
Whenever  i see the world personalities then get surprising & surprising--
For example
++++Hilary Clinton of USA (for whom the riads of MALL Road were washed ) belonged  to very poor family & her mother had  to work as "AYA" of children at the age of 13. More over Hilary Clinton was also to join a Fish cleaning  factory (which she has said that was  the most hard & bitter experience)
++++ Henry Kissinger father was a poor teacher
BUT WHETHER SUCH THINGS CAN BE THOUGHT IN PAKISTAN
It is very surprising that few days ago one of my relative was having common discussion with me .His son was  also with him. The father said "Do not worry--after 10 years a person from Dubai would come & would become as Prome Minister & would solve our problems----U cam judge to whom he was pointing out----I said why not ur son ??.Your son is also of the same age --He said it is not system here
i said what a bad luck of father is that father  can not even expect for his  son as Prime Minister -----& what a son is that he even can  not say to father what system was being developed by old generation for new generation. Even old generation is not saying a single word ---it is pity
--------
Grand son of one of my friends age 13 years (living in Pakistan) has migrated migrated to USA & is getting good  academic results in USA . My friend went to USA to see his son & grandson .
There my friend said to grand son "u please come to my grave in Pakistan after 30 years  & say "Grand Pa --i have become president of  USA"
Then he embraced his grandson----
One Pakistani can imagine these things in USA & not in Pakistan --ALAS __HUNDRED ALASes--
Dear Rubina:
 
I have read with great interest your attached article.
 
I fully agree with what you have said in a brief note.
 
The story of my own life confirms the substance of your thought provoking theme.
 
In 1947 ,we migrated from East Punjab to Pakistan , having lost every thing in cash and property.
If my father had not risen to the commanding heights by sheer hard work , we would have lived miserablly all our lives. His example to cope with the challenges inspired his offspring's.
Whie all of my brothers excelled in business I went on to earn my Masters in Economics degree  with Gold Media from the Punjab University ; got Fulbright Fellowship to study at USA's most prestigious universities , was part of a small group of persons who started  the Asian Dev. Banks' Economcs Department; was selected by the World Bank in Washington when Robert McNamara was it's President; lead the World Bank Missions for 23 years to various countries in Asia, Africa and Europe and retired as it's Senior Advisor in 1996. One of the great motivating factor was that as a Pakistani I must perform as well if not better than any other nationality in the Bank.
With the Blessings of the Almighty God I achieved what would have been unthinkable when we migrated to Pakistan as virtually penniless.
 
Keep up with the kind of good work you are doing and keep me in the loop.
 
With best wishes and prayers ,

آپ کا یہ کالم ۔۔۔۔۔ تقدیر اور تدبیر۔۔۔۔ ہر سوچنے والے کے لیئے کوئی نہ کوئی راہ 
سجھا رہا ہے۔ ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔ میں اس ضمن میں صرف اتنا عرض کرنا چاہوں گا کہ آپ نے
کالم کے آخری پیراگراف میں پاکستانی عوام کو جس طرح جھنجوڑنے کی کوشش کی ہے
وہ ایک بے سود سعی ہے۔ پاکستانی قوم  ۔۔۔۔ بے حس۔۔۔۔۔۔ نہیں۔۔۔۔۔۔ بے بس کردی گئی ہے۔
اب اس کی زندگی کا مقصد اپنی ضرورتوں سے جنگ کے سوا کچھ نہیں۔ اور یہ جو میں نے
ضرورتوں سے جنگ کہا تو یہ انتہائی بنیادی ضرورتیں ہیں۔ آٹے اور شکر سے محروم اور
بھاری بھاری بل ادا کرنے کے باوجود بجلی اور گیس کا انتظار کرنے والی یہ مخلوق اب 
اپنی عارضی بقا کے سامان میں مصروف ہے۔ یہ قوم گھر سے نکلتی ہے تو اس خوف سے
کہ کسی چوراہے کسی نکڑ پر کوئی شخص اس کی جیب سے رقم نکال لے گا یا کم از کم
اس کا موبائل فون تو ضرور چھین لے گا۔ اس پر دوسرا خوف اس خودکش دھماکے کا ہوتا ہے
جو کبھی اور کہیں بھی ہو سکتا ہے۔ ایسا دھماکا جس کے فورا بعد قانون کے رکھوالے ایک
عدد سر برآمد کرنے میں کوئی دیر نہیں لگاتے ، لیکن دھماکے سے قبل اس سر والے کو نہیں
پکڑ پاتے۔ ۔۔۔۔۔ اس قوم کی موجودہ بے بسی کو اگر ان ہی کے اعمال کا نتیجہ کہا جائے تو 
معاف کیجئے گا میں اس سے بھی متفق نہیں ہو پاوں گا۔ ۔۔۔۔ یہ قوم اب انتخابات میں ووٹ نہیں
دیتی ان کے ووٹ پہلے ہی ڈال دئیے جاتے ہیں ۔ یہ اپنے حکمران نہیں چن رہی ، حکمران 
ان کے لیئے چنے جا رہے ہیں۔ مشرف سے زرداری تک چہرے کی اس تبدیلی کے ناٹک نے
مسائل اور مصائب میں کچھ زیادہ ہی اضافہ کر دیا ہے۔۔۔۔۔ میں یہاں کسی عوامی انقلاب کی راہ
بھی نہیں دیکھ رہا کہ زبان ، مسلک اور صوبائی شناخت میں بٹی ہوئی یہ قوم کسی انقلاب کو 
جگانے سے پہلے اپنی ہی نفرتوں کا شکار ہو سکتی ہے۔۔۔۔۔۔۔ اب اگر ایسی قوم کا کوئی فرد 
اپنی ڈگری سمیت کسی ترقی یافتہ ملک میں ٹیکسی ڈرائیور کا کردار ادا کر رہا ہے تو ٹھیک
ہے کہ اس کا اثاثہ اس کے خواب نہیں ، اس کی محرومیاں ہیں۔ 
محترمہ معاف کیجئے گا کہ اپنی رو میں جانے کیا کیا لکھ گیا۔ اگر رابطہ رہا تو انشاءاللہ
تبادلہ_خیال بھی رہے گا۔ آپ بہت اچھا لکھتی ہیں اس کی داد قبول کیجئے۔

Dear Ms. Rubina,
Your article is very impressive and meditative. Poverty can be alleviated by national policies. The nations which do not adopt scientific and progressive policies they can not come out of the gamut and orbit of poverty. Of course, some people made their name and position by hard work and God gifted talents but they are a few in number.  We need to change the culture of ignorance, emotionalism, retrogression and non- scientific attitude. Then the equitable and equal distribution of wealth is essential to promote the culture of talent pool.

The essay, Ander ki Boo, highlights prejudice, an intrinsic human trait that exists in one form or the other in more or less all nations and communities of the world. The dictionary meanings of prejudice are: an adverse opinion or leaning formed without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge; an instance of such judgment or opinion; an irrational attitude of hostility directed against an individual, a group, a race, or their supposed characteristics. 

Many years ago, a stand up comedian told the following joke on British TV: 

“Do you know the difference between a Pakistani and an Indian?

The Pakistanis smell curry, and the Indians just smell” 

The comedian received a few laughs at the cost of immigrants from those two countries by being nasty and derogatory against them. The audience are often unconsciously part of the process by which they take pleasure in degrading others. Unfortunately, the matter does not end there. Often enough, the process repeats itself in one form or the other such that a certain ethnic community becomes a permanent target of degradation. The dangerous implication of this is that a certain, not so bright cross-section of the society misinterprets the jokes and the jest and mistakenly perceives them as a reality on the lines of a division of superior beings and inferior beings.  

Many incidents are on record in the US and Canada whereby, the White riffraff ended up murdering Non-Whites where the things started from simple horsing around and ended up murdering the victims.  

We do not hear about similar situations of Whites murdering Whites without the presence of a known reason or incentive but we do hear about Whites committing  murders of Non-Whites with no apparent rhyme or reason. It would appears that certain dimwitted individuals go around with delusional perceptions of being “superior” hence they believe it is fair to do whatever they want to do to the “inferiors” for fun or whatever reason it may be.   

Deep seated, unchecked prejudices often end up causing great damage at individual as well as at national levels. The ethnic, sectarian or political prejudices belong to the same human weaknesses which are often exploited by a stand up comedian to get (apparently) a harmless laugh.

Dear Ms. Rubina Faisal,
Thank you for e-mailing me your column on The Inner Stink. You have expressed your grief on the sad demise of a young Hindu student at the hands of some Australian miscreants. It is indeed a great crime. As a lover of humanity I strongly condemn this racial vicious act of the Australians involved in it.  A Hindu is also a human being worthy of all love and affection. You, in your column have mentioned that the prominent Indian film actor Eimitab Bhachan who happens to be a staunch Hindu refused to accept the Australian award as a protest on the killing of a Hindu student. You have admired his gesture of protest. But you have posed some  alarming questions  about this super film star. You have asked as to why he kept silent when the Muslims were being cut like cabbages in Gujrat? Why on the murder of Indira Gandhi, he issued the press statement to kill the Sikhs?. You have asked  as to why he did not invite the Muslims at the marriage ceremony of his son? Does he consider the Muslims and the Sikhs skunks? Does he think non- Hindus untouchable?  These questions need to be answered. I do not want to discuss him as I do not get involved in individual cases. But he represents the mentality of those people who inwardly stink.  He is like a stinking mammal. I always liked him for his superb performance in the Indian films. Once I saw a film on Indian TV, in which he performed the role of an Indian colonel fighting against the Muslim freedom fighters whom they call infiltrators and terrorists. In my opinion the Kashmiris crusading against Indian aggression and hegemony in Kashmir are not terrorists but freedom fighters. After seeing that film I found him a Hindu hardliner. Personally I hate all hardliners as they are not the salt but the scum of the earth and he is one of them.
So far as you have written that we feel every one stinky if he is not from our clan, creed, color , country or class. I very much agree with you. The human mind still has not progressed. We live in the dome of prejudices and prides. We hate people for petty and paltry things. The man is still short sighted and narrow minded. You have correctly pointed out that the people do not stink, it is our own inner stink that maddens us. We become animals and ruthlessly kill others considering them our enemies. Oldous Huxley in his book titled "The Ivory Tree" writes that the word enemy is like a paranoia that frightens us and prepares us to kill others. I have been a great admirer of Hafiz Sherazi, a great poet of Iran who preached love. In my opinion all the creatures of God are lovely. Who are we to distribute Heaven and Hell? The world needs poets and philosophers, not the priests. I believe in two powers. The power of Matter and the power of Mind. Science deals with the properties of matter and mind deals with rationality and spirituality. We need scientists and spiritualists. When I say spiritualists I do not mean the religious traditionalists in the cassocks and cloaks of rabbis, priests, mullahs and pundits. By it I mean the spiritualists and mystics who spread the sweet fragrance of love and peace.
I have found the message of humanity in your column. I have sung the songs of humanity and endorse your noble ideas for the oneness of all humankind.

Dear Ms. Rubina Faisal,
Your poem titled On the birth of 2010 is very optimistic. It gives the message of love and peace to all nations. It mirrors the sunny and bright aspect of fortune, fate and future. But at the same time you have lamented on the grim past which left the sobs, sighs, screams and sorrows of the people who became the victim of terrorism at the hands of religious extremists and berserk and belligerent assassins. The present incident of Karachi and Muzzaffarabad  on the Tenth of Moharram has shattered the whole Pakistani nation. I wish we succeed in keeping law and order situation and eliminate all the nexuses and axes of evil. Your poem depicts hope for happy future. I pray with you for better days. I share the woe of the families of the martyrs. May God grant them patience and perseverance to bear this tragedy and shower the rain of permanent peace and beneficence on the souls of the departed ones. Amen.
With warm wishes,

روبینہ آپ کی تحریر" مین اور میری امی" بہت خوب ہے۔ مان اور بیٹی کا رشتہ کتنا حسین اور دلپزیر ہوتا ہے۔ اگر یہ کہوںکی یہ ایک درد کا رشتہ ہوتا ہےتوغلط نہین ہوگا

سلام مسنون روبینہ صاحبہ،

ماشااللہ آپ کی تحریروں میں بات کہنے کا سلیقہ بہت خوب ہے۔ عورت کی زندگی کے متعلق چند تجربات کے لئے میں یقینی طور پر کہہ سکتی ہوں کہ جب تک "بیٹی" اسی کیفیت سے نہیں گزرتی "ماں" کے درد کو سمجھ نہیں پاتی۔ماں اپنا ہر درد اولاد سے چھپا لیتی ہے، مگر اس کے بعض درد بیٹی ایک مخصوص  اسٹیج پر پہنچ کر سمجھنے لگتی ہے ۔ وہ شعوری یا لاشعوری طور پر وہی انداز اپنانے لگتی ہے جو اس  کی ماں کے ہوتے ہیں۔ بہر حال آپ کا کالم دل نے زیادہ محسوس کیا۔ پوسٹ کرنے کا شکریہ۔

سلام مسنون. میں اور میری ماں دل پذیر تحریر ہے.انسانی روایت اور ورثہ اسی طرح ایک سے دوسری نسل کو منتقل ہوتا ہے مگر نئی نسل کو اس کا احساس صرف اس وقت ہوتا ہے جب وہ خود پرانی نسل بن جاتی ہے.اس حقیقت کو ماں اور باپ بننے کے بعد ہی محسوس  کیا جا سکتا ہے.اور اپنے ماں باپ کا قرض اسی طرح اتارا جاسکتا ہے کہ جو کچھ ان کی قربانیوں کے طفیل ایک نسل کو ملتا ہے اسے وہ دوسری نسل کو اسی محبت اور شفقت کے ساتھ منتقل کردین اور معاوضہ طلب نہ کریں. آپ نے یہ نکتہ خوبی سے پیش کیا ہے.

Mohatarma Rubina Faisal Sahiba, 
Assalam-o-Alaikum. 
This refers to your e-mail of 9th December, 2009. We have sent your article "Noha" to weekly Asia for its publication. 
Your thoughts and efforts are greatly appreciated. May Allah Subhanahu-wa-Taala bless you. 
 
Liaqat Baloch

The article brings back sentimental yearning of the yesteryears. When I was a young lad, each time my father talked about his own younger days of pre-partitioned India, I used to think as if he was talking about a century old history, that only existed to fill the history book pages. Now, that I have taken his place in age and responsibilities in the real world – the world that often appears unkind and vindictive; more cruel and overbearing, less forgiving and forbearing, the nostalgic thoughts and the importance of history has taken a prominent place in my thought process. The reminiscence and nostalgia is a great band-aid to enable one to wade through the bitter realities of the present life.  

Reading about pratha and omelet smell for breakfast took me back through time creating a virtual picture in my mind, similar to what the article has depicted. But, unfortunately, that is not the extent of it. My thoughts quickly scramble to connect the dots between economy, sociology and politics and how they impact our every day life.  

Going beyond my personal nostalgia, the article reminds me of the great historical injustices that took place at national and international levels around the world. In spite of the fact that the history books have recorded the events in great details, it’s a pity that no one is willing to read them and learn any lessons; consequently, condemned to repeat the same mistakes.  

Had our forefathers dealt with the British Trading Company wisely during 18th and 19th centuries, India may not have been through, what it has been; the socio-economic destruction and political molestation that has forced many of us to wander around the globe only to earn our living in lands far away from the sweet smell of pratha  and omelets prepared with freshly chopped coriander and mint leaves.

Rubina Jee, salam!!

A very touchy article indeed!! Thanx for sharing.

Just a thought; we understand God is a male and if there has to be a female rep of God down here then its got to be - the Mother.

My own mother passed away on 16 June 1996 while I was still in Pakistan.
I had been to graveyards many a times before and I must admit I had no feeling at all. I just thought it was a courtesy to attend to funerals of the friends and relatives of our acquaintances.

However, when I buried my mother and we were about to return, I was in a shell shock then. I had the strange feeling then that I had buried a part of of me there and how could I ever leave after burying a part of me?

I now realize how blessed are those who have their mothers still alive to prepare "paratha" for them.

Good piece of writing and very true also!!!

Keep writing!!!

Love and regards always.

Beautiful & Zindabad  !  I wish all daughters to remember what role thier mothers played in their brought-up; what we have lost in this Migration .... our Identity, our land, even  our cultural values.
 
Your article took me back to 64 years, when I left my mother & my house in 1945 for higher studies in  Muslim University Aligarh (India).   In 1954 when she came to Karachi, she had lost her husband (my father) her home and her kitchen & servants. She stayed for only two years with my elder brother (a bureaucrat) before leaving us for good. And I still feel the warmeth & fragrance of those "Parathas"   !    You have taken me back 64 years and made me that 14 years old unfortunate son who lost his "Parathas & Omlet" in 1945. Long you live Rubina !  Best Regards: SKY.

Dear Rubina Faisal,
Your column about your Mom is very touchy and motivating. I am not only impressed but moved as well. You are a lady of pure passions. The English poet of Nature William Wordsworth says that poetry is the expression of powerful feelings expressed in tranquility. Last week I read your poems on inter net. I really enjoyed the passion in your words. Your prose also reflexes your sensitive heart. It is God gifted and I laud your feelings.  Keep it up.

DEAR RUBINA BAYTEE,
 
YOU ARE LUCKY TO HAVE READ DR. MAQSOOD'S BOOK AND POETRY.  I DO  NOT KNOW WHERE AND HOW TO GET THEM. I ONLY ONCE SAW HIM WHEN HE WAS HERE IN A MEETING OF PAKISTAN WRITERS FORUM. I FOUND HIM A "NORMAL & BALANCED" PERSONALITY.
 
AFTER THE MEETING, I CONGRATULATED HIM ON HIS SPEECH DEFENDING THE QURAAN AND RIGHTS OF WOMEN AS PRESCRIBED IN THE HOLY BOOK AND BY THE PROPHET (bpuh).  THEN GAVE HIM A COPY OF MY POETRY BOOK 'GULZAAR-E-KHALEEL' AND STILL AWAITING HIS COMMENTS.  HE IS VERY HANDSOME BUT THE ONLY THING THAT AGITATED ME WAS HIS  'HAND WRITING'  !  I WONDER IF HE GETS THESE COMMENTS OF MINE !

Dear Rubina Baytee,
 
What wonderful articles you are writing. However, they are useless for those who are here in Canada. They may share your feelings; appreciate your expression and shed tears on the plight of our country-men. They can not do anything more than that.  I suggest that you send your articles to some newspaper in Pakistan, like Jang or Naw-i-waqt, so that they may casue some stir in the cold blood of our Leaders and Bureaucracy.
 
Those who live in Bilawal House or  in a  Villa (Palace) in Raiwind, are only intersted in Power and Money Making. They have no morals or human-values. They  oppose each other only to be-fool the common man.
 
I spent the best part of my life ( 20 years, one month and one day, from June 18, 1962 to July 19, 1982.) in Lahore, and got the opportunity of seeing the Shareefs from very close corner. Then from Jan.01, 1983 to  Jan 11, ' 92 , ( Just beforfe migrating to Canada) during my posting in Karachi,  saw Zardari & Co and  their activities. 
 
Common man in Pakistan is very simple and kind hearted. Being illiterate,  they quickly forget and forgive.  They have forgiven Benazir for all her evils and exploitations. She knew what the Hell her husband was doing !     Similarly,  people have forgotten what Nawaz Shareef & Co did to Labour leaders in Ittefaq Industries, how they got billions rupees worth of thier Loans " Write-off"  in Habib Bank and Mehran Bank;  how they cheated the Overseas Pakistanis by disallowing anybody to take out  F.Ex. frfom the country  but  after transfering millions into their own ( Shareef & Co,s' )  accounts in Europe and USA  ! 
 
Pakistanis are, in deed, most unfortunate that they have Two Recognized Cheats & Robbers as their National Leaders. These capitalists & Zamindars (F.Lords) can not bring any Change, nor the Mullahs can.    Fate of the country will only change when some one from the Middle-class will come up  because it is the Middle class which has Education  and possesses Moral Values .... an absolute ingredients for bringing a Revolution.   

Best Regards. SKY

Rubina:

I have always enjoyed reading your articles, but this time I am going to dare asking you few questions related to the substances of your assessment. You have graciously blamed mercenaries like (Black Water & Z) to pay $1,000 per day reward money to Pakistanis for killing their fellow citizens. You have also blame the current regime being a traitor and the IG Punjab Police for acting callously and insensitively in handling the 45 dead bodies with disrespect and people snatching the jewelry from the doomed and ill-fated bodies of the burned brides. You have also included hunger and unemployment as the prime reason for all that evil in Pakistan.

 

In my humble view your final assessment to hold American responsible for the social disorder in Pakistan is unjustified and does not support your argument. Please remember that Pakistanis are to be held liable for all the atrocities in Pakistan. It is quite easy to blame others for our failure, but hard to take the responsibilities of our own mistakes and lead our lives with dignity.

 

If PPP is in power, it is because of the power of people’s vote.

If Pakistan has bad economy, unemployment, and hunger, it is due to the bad policies of our governments since 1947.

If Americans are roaming the streets of Islamabad and some other cities, it is because we beg for their financial support.

It will be more beneficial if we straighten up our own house and stop the blame game.

 

Best wishes.

 

Habib.

Dear Sis,
 
Hope you are fine, "MAZEED NOHA" is very near to reality, but one thing I want to add, this is not only the problem of our country if you go in some past and see the scenes of KARBALA how much there was stolen the Taberuqat by the yazeedi army they are not from any other religion they are Muslims.  you find out the actual fact that, this is the problem of whole Muslim ummah and the reason behind it, SHATAN who is the biggest enemy of muslims he is not afraid of any other religion because they are the follower of them. Ple think about this and I am sure that If your thinking are gone towards this track you will write about it very well and gave the awareness to the peoples. Thank you take care and good bey.

Dear Rubina Sahiba,

Remember all the terrorism caused by Blackwater in Iraq? They are now rampant in Pakistan – thanks to Uncle Sam for appointing PPP and its ilk to rule Pakistan and getting it destroyed as Iraq was destroyed. When $1000 a day salary is offered to poor people by CIA/Blackwater (Xe) operatives, many will be ready to sell their souls and start slaughtering their own people. If compradors were not ruling Pakistan, you would not have had to write your recent column, NOHA. The article below is only a drop in the ocean to give you an idea how the foreign elements operate in poor countries like Pakistan, M.E and South America. If the CIA operatives are not going to be removed very soon, you are going to see a lot more bloodbath of innocent people and perhaps more frequently too. The foreign mercenaries will not be removed unless the present government is removed and replaced by some intelligent, honest, competent and selfless people.

One of my good friends sometimes send me links to certain pieces of writings which are highly gradable and I usually go over and (honestly) only fifty percent of them I read to it's entirety. Last week I read such piece to its entirety and was so much impressed that curiously scrolled the entire web site and found some interesting things related to 'Home'. Your today's article impressed me and I started recalling our discussions among Pakistani friends in the early 90's who used to support PPP and/or MLN and would hate to hear from me whenever I said, all of these politicians are crooks and don't have democracy among their own parties and making fools of illiterate and poor population for the sake of getting powerful financially and politically. During those days BB was having a 'permanent residency' in a Holiday Inn within Washington DC area and was seeking favours from senior Bush to become PM of Pakistan. A lot of lobbying expenses, meetings with fellows and hotel expenses of herself and crew and guests and-------and. She was proud to boast that she filed her taxes (on an income of Rs. 90000) (not even half a days expenses she was spending). And Nawaz Sharif, that poor guy, was broke and under loans (multi million Rupees loans) (which were forgiven) and was unable to pay even a Paisa.
Every cautious person knows what's going on in my Wattan-e-Aziz, even illiterate, poverty stricken people know, yet they will bring the same selfish idiots to power. It's not a few people to be educated and told, what you very nicely said in your article, but the entire nation needs therapy to cure and get going. Thanks for this article and may I request to keep writing such things, although everyone knows, some day some one will wake up. I wish I could do more than sending you this comment, but consider this as my contribution.

Thanks for sharing. Good subject and a very good article. Stage is selling what people are willing to buy. What needs to be fixed? Audience or actors? I have seen "Tamashbeen" crowed yelling at the actors and demanding to show the "Mujra". When told to wait he said "I haven't spent five hundred rupees to listen to your "Bakwas" Show me the dance.  
God bless.

Dear Ms. Rubina,
I have read it last night way before I got your email. You wont find "stage" shows anywhere in Pakistan or let me say Punjab but mini strip tease clubs for pervert tamashbeens (any suitable word?). 

Fall of stage in Punjab  is the result of pervez elahi and musharraf's so called roshan khayali or enlighten moderation as they used to call it. Anyway, all i can do is to never join the on going funereal of what it is tagged called as "stage" and felt like linguistic porn.

I'd stopped watching the stage shows 3 years ago when i see two or three midgets  making ruthless and shameful fun of Ammanullah. That was the day i colcluded that this stage thing has been ruined.

Thanks once again for sharing your such a wonderful article.

Assalam-u-Aliekum Ms. Rubina Faisal,

Fantastic column with solid piece of facts not fiction. I have read your column for the very first time and they left me wishing for all your previous column so i did read em at your website.

As being a PML activist, i want to point out toward a thing about Mian sb's tax matter. Mian sb's factories arent just belong to him but they are run by group of directors as they are entitled as private limited's. Cumulative Tax payed by his alleged factories are over 5000 million rs in previous 5 years.
(Cited by Mian sb himself during an interview with hamid mir and suhail warraich:  http://pkpolitics.com/2009/11/17/nawaz-sharif-interview-17-november-2009/  )

Thank you once again for sharing your column with me and i hope that a writer will remain in touch with its reader in future.
Happy Eid-ul-Ad'ha in Advance.

With best wishes,
Waqas Yousaf

Well ! your article is always to the point and direct. Its nice.

Few days  ago i was talking with editor ,Mr Zubair Of "Muqadama" Karachi.I told him why not  he  publish the column of Rubina Faisal in   MUQADAMA (with her permission) because i have found them very interesting having  full intelectual touches & can be put with parallel  to  good articles of other news papers.   
 I was  introduced with you  through a column of MUQADMA which was written by you .He  had agreed . I want your  columns  to be published in  Pakistan.

Your review is pf course  compact & comprehensive one--It not only shades light on the Afsana but also gives lessons to new wtiters about the techniques , the length of any story , and also the way to squeeze  any afsana with out haming the effect /theme/ ompression of afsana
 
There is alphabet ZAY in urdu which you usually write as ZAAL of urdu For example at MAZEED u used the alphabet ZAAL instead of ZAY
Similarly at ZIADAH u used  ZAAL instead of ZAY of urdu
I have noted some of your sentences which can guide new comer in the field of Afsana
 
AGAIN APPRECIATING FOR YOUR REVIEW

Very good article. We have a psychiatric in Dr. Khalid Sohail. May Allah Kareem keep him safe as he is treating Pakistani / Muslim poets & writers in addition to his regular clients !

Ms. Rubina,
 
I have read your piece with lot of interest and appreciation. It is balanced and quite reasonalble. Each side is trying to draw conclusions to their liking, and there are bits and pieces that will allow them to take such a piece. An objective assessment will have to wait until such time that all information about Nidal is available, including of course, as you said, his own statement that would indeed come at some point after he is well enought to do so.
Please include me on your mailing list, as this time it seems it has come from an unintended address.

Dear Rubina Faisal,
Your column on major Malik Hassan who shot dead his military colleagues in Texas , USA is very factual. We need moderation. No religious extremism or state terrorism is needed. Peace is indivisible. I am remembered of a couplet of Pakistani revolutionary poet Habib Jalib in which he says:" Zul rahe our amn be ho tum he batao kaisy mumkin hae." (You tell me how peace can be maintained under the canopy of oppression). It is my considered opinion that the Imperialists are State terrorists but there are other peaceful ways to avert terrorism. We can mobilize the people world over against the accessories and excesses of the predators and aggressors. In this modern age we should use Pen instead of using Gun. I agree with you when you plead for moderation. We have extremists on both sides. Keep up your crusade for peace. The history has witnessed many bloody crusades in the name of God. Now we need crusades of peace in the name of humanity.
Sincerely yours,

Dear Dr. Khalid Sohail,
I appreciate the intellectual, creative and critical exercise of the writers  of Canada at the platform of Family of the Heart. I am also thankful to you for inviting me  last month to address the writers of Toronto. My tour was a heartening experience for me.
I have read the Afsana of Dr. Baland and the comments of Ms. Rubina Faisal. Dr. Baland mirrors his philosophical intricacies to a grand son by a grand father which seem out of place. His very brief story leaves no emotional or philosophical impact. If it is not ridiculous, at least it is more than a riddle. I wish he uses his innate talent naturally and with out obscurity. If he does so then he will have no need to give foot notes for his story.
The comments of Ms. Rubina Faisal are superb.  She has used the word The Iron Cap for such incomplete impressions.  The scooter riders use helmet which protects their head from injury but the iron caps of Shah Doula Ka Chooha of Gujrat, Pakistan stop mental and physical development. We are living in the society of mental dwarfs. It is not the age of abstract art. The similes, similitude and metaphors beautify the writing but obscurity causes confusion and is the replica of cowardice and non-conformist attitude.  John Donne had called her beloved his sweet America. Such far fetched simile serves no purpose except a craze in the name of novelty. I appreciate the comments of Ms. Rubina Faisal and believe that a writer like Dr. Baland will give due consideration to her suggestions.
Sincerely yours,
Dr. Maqsood Jafri

I saw Your http://rubinafaisal.com & found very interesting ---some of the columns are reaching to the standard of very high column  writers of Pakistan
 
                                   ALLAH KARAY ZORAY QALAM AUR ZIADA
 
I am sending  my columns herewith---These are about
 
           Education system, 
           Eid/Moon system . 
           Agriculture system
 
of Pakistan.
 
I am B.Sc Mechanical Engineer .In year 2000 when you had  migrated to Canada under the gidance of SUNNAH  i was also nearly at the edge of migration but had quitted idea due to some problems.It was my mistake i sometimes think--However i am now saying my children to act upon the SUNNAH & leave for Canada
 
On my face book i have shown a website of ILMOAMAL which helps the poors of Pakistan ---I am member of this orgainsation. In Pakistan there are many welfare organisations but  mostly  the organisers run such organisation for their namesake , reputation in the MOHALLAH  or in the newspapers .but this organisation is free of it . The people who are  running this are settled in USA, Saudia , etc or working at higher posts in multinational  organisations of Pakistan so they are free of such desires . Through this organisation i  am distributing nearly one lak rupees annually.They are mainly students seeking 91 % marks but their parents are very poor.Some  children are medically unfit. When i saw one of such child in a miserable condition my throat was choked literary. A child of eight years was lyong on front on me whose bones were broken & then due to non availability of treatment were joned again in disorganised way so child was of a very strange structural shape-----Its website address is as www.ilmoamal.org 
 
MUNIR AHMAD 
I appreciate the column. No comparison, our ladies in Pakistan are more brave and keep on working more than 100 years if they alive in home affairs. They are symbol of unity in the family.

Rubina Sahiba,  

Your recent article on Mississauga mayor is quite informative. People in Pakistan would certainly read it with interest and it may even appear unbelievable to many of them.  

I concur with your last sentence; Calling Pakistan’s law “the law of jungle” is certainly an insult for the jungle where natural laws exist. The truth is that Pakistan has no law. Its state of lawlessness therefore, cannot be compared to any thing that exists any where.  

Pakistan will have no hope to become a law abiding place until those corrupt personalities who keep coming back to the corridors of power are removed from the politics and disbarred permanently.  

Javed I.

I hope you are fine by the Grace of ALLAH SUBHANWATALLAH. I used to read your columns. I was surprised to read your last column where you have quoted one Sb who says " Pakistani Quuam apni ghanghki darhi mein chupattay heins". 
 
Take a look at your family and see how many of them having beard qualify for this point. I am sure your elders are having beard to follow Sunnah.I see and meet many people who are having beard just to comply with Sunnah. I request you please not to disgrace this sunnah.
 
Since we do not follow Quran and Sunnah, the present situation is reward of that.
 
I am sure you will take it positively as people living outside Pakistan rate them more sophisticated and well mannered without realizing that most of people in Pakistan are under stress.
 
MAY ALLAH SUBHANWATALLAH ADVISE US TO FOLLOW QURAN AND SUNNAH. This is the only way out to get ourselves out of the present situation in Pakistan.

U r right.
Pakistani Nation is too like their leaders. as is nations same are the leader.

Dear Ms. Rubina Faisal,
I wish you health and happiness. My short visit to Toronto ,Canada was soul stirring as I had the honor of meeting with the poets and scholars. I am very sorry that I could not make to visit you . It was very kind of you. Hope to see you in future tour.
Thank you for your new article in which you have unmasked the face of spurious literary coins who are false and fake in their code and conduct. The ladies or gents who pose to be poets while they are not ,are the scum of the earth. Mirza Ghalib in a Persian couplet says:
"Ma na boodeem bedin murtaba razi Ghalib
Shaer khud khahishe un kard ke garded funna ma".
Translation: "Ghalib we were not ready to accept the innate status of being poets. The poetry descended upon us and became our art".
At an other place he says: "Aa roshini-e- Taba too ber mun bala shudi." ( O, my inner light of vision you have perturbed me).
What I want to propound is that the born poets are full of love pain as the woman feels labor pain while giving birth to a child. A true poet is always in the state of absorption and self possession. They are love incarnate. In the words of William Wordsworth they are hyper sensitive. In my opinion a true poet has a mission and that mission is the love for all humans irrespective of the differences of cult, creed, color, caste and country. He stands for liberty and justice. Poets are the lovers of beauty; beauty of physique and the beauty of mind.
I condemn those imposters and cheats who claim to be poets while they are not. Poets are born poets. They can not be produced in factories. I very much endorse your views about poets. Your writing is very powerful and motivating.
Sincerely yours,

My dear Rubina,
It is interesting to note that you are so committed to Urdu Adab. May I congratulate you on your
achievements & the work you do in this form of art. At present I have not Urdu software so I can not send any of my Urdu work. However I am sending one of my English poem:

--- In Search of a New Sun ---

I had a dream last night
Everyone had a blood bath
They were holding heavy and big books in their hands
Their eyes were shut
Their lips were tight and sealed.
Their hands and faces wore
The mark of the scripture
Which said-----------------
We were looking for a new sun
But the bullets of violence
In the darkness of night
Did not let us march
Towards the morning. ------------------------------
With due regards & a lot of love and affection for your husband and childern,

thumbs up for another great article. 

Thank you for another brilliant piece depicting our moral bankruptcy which actually edges on stupidity. Like you, most patriotic Pakistanis do not see any good coming out of the so called elites of Pakistan, who are nothing else but scums and blood-sucking parasites.

Unfortunately, Pakistani culture has now dictinct jagirdar/wadera overtones which slutes the people above and kicks anyone down below. It is deplorable seeing Pakistanis worshipping power and money regardless of how it is obtained. I doubt that with Pakitstan firmly in their clutches, there is any hope unless there is a popular uprising and a revolution which eliminates the upper class. Best regards.

Remmber me and my family in your prayers. Best regards,

Mrs. Rubina Faisal, 

I have read a lot of columns written by you. I can not say, I am your fan. But I love your columns and writing style which is full of valuable information.

Your analyses is always nice and no one can ignore. Now a days I am more concerned about the national security issues. 95% of my reading time is focused on these issues e.g. Black Water's activities in the country, USA interference in Pakistan, USA embassy extension and merines, Merriat Hotel, 200 rented houses for USA agents and their full "Badmashi" and lerry Logar Bill (Nation's handcuffing Bill ) second version of East India Co. 

where our country is going, I feel like we are sorrunded by black cloudes. Who will awake our nation and open their eyes to take action against all on going activities in IslamAbad, Karachi, Pashawer and other places 

I am afraid if no action will be take in time and we will keep sleeping, our nation will die while asleep. And who knows how long the BLACK time will last. decades, centuries or millennium. Khuda Ra kuch kijiye...... wake the nation .... please ... please ......

I feel no shy begging you to ask you to wake my nation up, you have power of writing, power of wisdon and power of expression. 

I am single and a common layman. I just keep thinking and my bloods keep boiling all the times. 

I shall feel honored if you answer me with few words. With Best regards 

Your brother

Dear Rubina Faisal Sahiba,

"Bacha Jamura" is a beautiful description, I really liked it, keep it up. Regards. 

Shujat Ali Hamid


Rubina sahiba, I just read your column, Bacha Jamhoora; obviously you are disappointed with the kind of democracy they have in Pakistan. In reality, it is not the democracy that you and I and many others are disappointed from, it is the lack of democracy that is making us all very upset. There is a democratic package but there is nothing inside it that matches the label. There are more democracies similar to the one in Pakistan. One is in Afghanistan and the other in Iraq. These democracies are run by the same imperialists – the Americans. It’ shameful, the Americans had learnt well from the history, but our people did not learn a thing from it, hence they are condemned re-live the past.  

The system that they have in Pakistan, was not devised for Pakistan or by its people, it was devised for America, by America using Pakistan’s own people as compradors who rule Pakistan but serve America,  perhaps they get paid in dollars directly into their foreign accounts. In old days, the imperialist powers used to appoint their own people as viceroys to rule the colonies. The modern times have replaced the viceroys with the compradors. The beauty of the new system is that you cannot easily point your fingers on any one.  

There are many requirements which are essential to set up a democracy, one of them, the most important one is a totally free judiciary. Do you think the chief judge was reinstated unconditionally? Certainly not. What about NRO? It was implemented at the instructions of Uncle Sam to replace Gen. Musharraf with others who would serve America to the fullest and whole heartedly that Musharraf did not do. Gen. Musharraf did not offer as much to the Americans as they expected, so they replaced him with others who would, and they are. America has the power to change Mr. 20% to Mr. 100%, and they did.

Dear Rubina bay-tee ( my daughter ),
 
What a beautiful comment on those who welcomed these Robbers like Rana Sanaullah. To be honest, both Nawaz Shareef & Zardari,  are two different faces of  the Satan. Their targets have been the Poor People of Pakistan. I have been to Pakistan, UAE & UK during the Jan to March '09 and could see the Ray-e-Wind palace of Shareef Bros which is as big and vast as that one of a  Saudi Prince. Also it is so well-protected that even the Pakistan Army cannot enter it without the assisstance of their Corps of Engineers !  To enter, one has to cross a  deep canala which has a Folding Bridge.  In case of any emergency, the bridge can be folded to prevent any body to enter into the palace. The palace has two Hali-pads.  One halicopter, in a stand-still position, is always there to take away the Shareefs out of the palace in case of any attack or danger to their life. Shareefs own three Sugar Mills and two Flour mills plus other 13 factories in Pakistan  and have billions worth of properties in UAE, Saudi Arab , Europe & USA; millions worth cash reserves in foreign banks.   Chdry. Shujaat's Brother-in Law, Riaz Choudhry was my colleague in Pakistan. When Shujaat was Nawaz Shareef's partner and a Minister in his Cabinet, Riaz came to Toronto on his way to USA to collect some documents from the Pakistan Consulate which were sent from Islamabad in the Diplomatic Post Bag. He asked me to accompany him to be introduced to Mr.Yousuf Shah, the Consul General. Riaz was looking a bit nervous. So I asked the reason. He very quietly disclosed that he was to deposit some cheques / Hundis in the  bank accounts of Shujaat & Nawaz Shareef in D'Moins (Ohaio) and L.A. respectively and those were the documents he was to collect from the Consulate. Riaz is a thorough gentleman and he admitted to have undertaken that  job because of his  family-relations with Shujaat. And that the two  Hundis (Money) were for  2 & 5  million US Dollars belonging  to Shujaat & Shareef respectively !      
 
Same is the position of Zardari / Bhutto family. Manager of Zardari;s property in UAE is a young Pakistani from Lahore whose parents used to be my neighbours in, Samanabad,  Lahore.   ( I lived for more than 20 years in Lahore.... from 1962  to  1983, and all of my children, one daughter and three sons,  were born and brought up in that great city.)    The young man, showed me , of course in good faith, the properties Zaardari owns there; the buildings, the Villas, the 5-star hotel and the Franchises of the Biggest Food Chain, about 15 branches throughout UEA,  he (Zaardari) has. The wealth Zardari has in Switzerland, UK , Frannce, USA & even in Toronto is no secret.     

Pakistani Awam ..... the Punjabis, the Sindhis, the Pathans, the Baluchis and the Immigrants and thier sons (Mohajirs)  are all very sweet and loving people  BUT the Zamindars, The Vaderas, the Bureaucracy, and the Mullahs & Political Leaders are  Robbers & Roughs.    They are the Victors and the People are the Victims.       AND who-so-ever praises these Victors or supports them is an Abetter.

Dear Rubina Faisal!
Salaamun Alaikum
 
You are very much right my dear to discuss an admitted fact about the present situation of our country and its rulers. Particularly in this column you have disclosed the factual position of our rulers who are collecting the wealth with their both hands just for their personal use and don't care about the people who are passing their lives miserably without their basic necessities like Atta and Sugar etc. In fact they are beggars who get loans from the country which watches its own vested interests first and imposes hard & tough conditions which are in no case acceptable for an honorable country but they are happy to accept all of their tough and degraded conditions. So I may request you to continue writing such columns and articles which may bring the true pictures of such black sheep who want to sell our beloved country in the hands of a big power just to pass their own lives luxuriously.

ur column is moving. i myself was very sad on this zulm.

Assalam -O-Alikum,
 
Hope you would be fine, I am continuously reading your articles on different topics. I think you should write an article on "Reference, A key for Job" as in our country we must have either money or reference to have a job.
 
This is my practical experience & observation as well that either one should have reference of someone in current government or money, otherwise one should have a too good luck for achieving a job.
 
I would be very thankful to you if you would write an article for the same as per your observation.
 
Thansk & would wait for the same.
Dear Rubina
Shabaash!!!
But don't fritter away your energies in too many things. My sincere advice to you is that you should choose your field. i I read your comment on tv talk shows. It should be published in a mainstream newspaper as well.
with best wishes

           i read ur column in the paper i can feel the pain for Pakistan in ur heart cause i feel the same. Growing up in Pakistan i was so enthusiastic and a patriot. By the time went by experiencing so much difference in reality shattered me. There r so many question marks in almost every aspect of life in Pakistan. U felt bad about that Punjabi guy's text but just think about it and b neutral how did the people who sacrificed  their love ones during the partition benefited  from this country? I heard something like somebody was trying to convince  quaid e azam from demanding separate country and quaid e azam took out a handkerchief from his pocket and said even if i get this much piece of land i will still make Pakistan Y Y Y Y Y Y Y Y Y ? I mean what kind of logic is it don't u feel that all they wanted was to have a separate piece of land   just to rule simply another greed and struggle of power at any cost. There is so much to say and to talk about may b later. Take care.

Hi Rubina, I find no problem exposing Imran on same medium where he makes noise for everyone...I think he got free ride from Media, True and honest Media would have buried him long time ago, but they use him time by time for their agenda
 
Our media is an absolute circus.. .
 
 
This is Pakistan, our Political Leaders and their kids Educate and Lives abroad and enjoy all the comforts they find there, everyone wants American style democracy but don't want American style accountability...
 
ADULTERESS have no room in Democracy.. they are done.. either is John Edward or Jesse Jackson...  But this is Pakistan, they will cry Islam, Justice and Accountability but when it comes to applications of these on our hypocrite leaders like Imran Khan... NO ANCHOR will do it... because Imran is hired gun of Nawaz Sharif or someone else
 
IMRAN should be stoned to death by his own standard/campaign he has been doing for Talibans and Terrorists

Dear All,

Please find attached or see below a column written by Hon. Madam Rubina Faisal.

I have no words to express my feelings after reading this column. She pointed out so precisely the mockery fate of Pakistani public. I am feeling so sorry to say this, but it is a very cruel fact that in a country like Pakistan, so many people (especially the elite class, Corrupts and Killers) are enjoying luxurious lives on cost of the blood of poor people of the country, who are leading a pathetic life.

I really agree with Madam Rubina that in such a situation how can one celebrate Eid instead of those who are corrupt and robberers of national resources. To restore true peace in our country we need to get rid of all these evils including (PAZNS) Pervaiz Altaf Zardari Nawaz Shujaat and their followers.

May we be able to bring true happiness in our country back (Aameen).

Jamil


Respected Rubina!
thanks for beautiful article  ur great feeling for sweet Pakistani people, We would encourage you to continue this process. Until next time, take care of yourself!
poems or u.
 

Before you think of saying an unkind word
Think of someone who can't speak

Before you complain about the taste of your food
Think of someone who has nothing to eat

Before you complain about your husband or wife
Think of someone who's crying out to God for a companion

Today before you complain about life
Think of someone who went too early to heaven

Before you complain about your children
Think of someone who desires children but they're barren

Before you argue about your dirty house; someone didn't clean or sweep
Think of the people who are living in the streets

Before whining about the distance you drive
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet

And when you are tired and complain about your job
Think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another
Remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down
Put a smile on your face and thank God you're alive and still around.

Life is a gift of GOD.
LIVE it....
ENJOY it......
CELEBRATE it.........
AND FULFILL it...............

 

I agree. Life is very precious, indeed. I cannot imagine what it would be like to wake up to gunfire and bombings on a daily basis.It is my belief that we come into this life after making a contract with god. We decided what we wanted to learn here, and what sacrifice we, as souls would make.It is my belief that we come into this life after making a contract with Allah. We decided what we wanted to learn here, and what sacrifice we, as souls would make.It is my belief that we come into this life after making a contract with Allah. We decided what we wanted to learn here, and what sacrifice we, as souls would make.
 
And the day will come 
When I will be killed
that day my assassin will find in my pocket
Travel tickets,
One would be to peace
One would be to the fields and the rains
and one would be to peoples conscience
My dear assassin!
Please!
Do not waste those tickets
 
thank u very much.
good luck and take care of urself for ur sweet children for great pakistani perople.
truly.
Malik. (sorry for poor english)

Thank's  for your information,  Regarding Black Water I want to tell  you,  important  information , do you know who is the first person  ? whic is informed the Black Water arivel in Pakistan"  International  Mediator " and Observer Islamic Countries ( Mr  Faisal Muhammed) in 2001 ,  I  saw his interview in Iran TV but  that  time  no budy blive it..
After all many information regarding Pakistan this Gentelmen provided do you him..?

Dear Rubina Faisal: Thanks for your fairy tail. You live in a dreamland. Pakistanis claim that this country was created in result of dream of a poet. This country has no relation with the history and geography. It was created by British as a base against soviet Union.
Baluchistan has a history of ten thousand years.. Balochistan was occupied by Pakistani army in 1948. If your father would have been murdered and your brother kidnapped by Pakistani military and your sisters abused in a Pakistani military torture camp would you have still shouted 'Pakistan zinda baad !' or cried like the young Baloch lady whose father has been murdered and brother kidnapped by Pakistani military. If your army kill, torture, harass, disappear Baloch do you expect words of praise or hatred, anger and revenge from them.

Madam ! remember that we live in twenty-first century. Today's Baloch are not Baloch of 1948. They have awakened from the deep slumber of centuries old. They are learning from the history of their ancestors and the freedom struggles of today. They know how to liberate their Motherland which was occupied by treachery, fraud and conspiracy.
NB

Salam alikum Rubina,
 
A friend of mine has forwarded me your article .
 I am quite upset about the worsening situation in Pakistan. I have been receiving emails about Black water organization in Pakistan for a while and now your article.
I really don't know what is going to happen in Pakistan in coming months . I have spent the best period of my life in Pakistan then got married and came here  to Canada. Though it's been 3 years only but seems like that this situation is gona be the worst ever for Pakistan ,God forbid !!
Its really a Jihad that you are doing .May Allah give you more strength and power so that you keep writing the truth and may Allah give us as a nation an EYE to see what is right and wrong and self respect to raise voice against oppression and May HE protects our dear homeland Pakistan from evildoers . Ameen!!
Jabeen

o nly and only Islam can save Pakistan now. total islamisation under true Muslim leader like mullah umar who is brave enough to never surrender and keep fighting against biggest powers of the world on principles
i assure the secular cursed people of Pakistan that there is not even a single secular leader who can save Pakistan
taliban had a short rule in Afghanistan but they built a model state in that time which was never seen in this areas history
unless we have true and pious and brave Muslims like taliban as leaders in Pakistan we have no future .remember my words.
only a pious and non compromising leader like mullah umar can save Pakistan ,a leader who has no greed for himself and he is prepared to die for his principles and who has no personal weakness

the matter of balochistan can be easily solved by a non compromising Islamic government who gives Islamic punishments to all the guilty people

because all nawabs of balochistan looted blaochitsnas resources and blamed it on punjab etc falsely so there hands should be cut and they should be hanged in streets,after doing this the common oppressed people of balochistan should be given their rights and they should be shown that the real reason for their deprivation is not punjab or pakistan but their own nawabs

the cursed akbar bugti who was not even a Muslim by religion some people say remained governor of balochistan for a long period but kept his people backward intentionally and never let any schools collages built in his area, but when the cursed bugti was removed from governor ship he sudddenly remembered that balochi people are being looted by punjab

bugti and his sons live life of kings,while common balochi and common punjabi are both starving to death
may allahs curse destroy these traitor balochi serdars and nawabs amen
all muslims fasting say amen to that

Ref your column "Nafrat", as usual --excellent and to the point. You have identified an important failing of us Pakistanis. Faced with unending problems of Pakistan, we are ever ready to criticize the very basis of Pakistan and its founder. And the most ridiculous thing is to malign the founder rather than the people responsible for Pakistan's sorry state -- the bandits comprising of the corrupt politicians, bureaucrats and their master the army generals. If they had not looted this nation mercilessly we would be ahead of many emerging countries like south Korea. Those Pakistanis who think that we were better off in India should read last few chapters of Sheikh Abdullah's autobiography where he laments how muslim majority in Kashmir is being undermined.
 
We adopt the same attitude with Islam as well. Rather than analyzing the distortions and lies of most of today's so called "ulemas" who are discrediting Islam, we, in particular some of our self styled "danishwars" are busy blaming Islam for every weakness of the Muslims. They portrays as if all problems of Muslims stem from Islam. How pathetic!
 
With warm regards.

I am deputy editor for europe www.gujratlink.com  and chief editor of www.merawattan.com   yesterday i was reading yours column NAFRAT,, believe me you wrote truth, you know why, because in Pakistan we never have ruler according to ours wishes and votes, so people have no right then they will say we don't need Pakistan,
               I also belong to a family that participated in PAKISTAN MOVEMENT ,and got GOLD MEDAL,, but we are not happy by present situation of Pakistan, and  I hopes we cannot do to repair this in future too, because it's not only difficult it's also impossible,, because of some powerful families in Pakistan who have deep and powerful connection in ARMY, POLITICS, ESTABLISHMENT, but we should not lose ours effort, Pakistan for Pakistani not for AGENT MAFIA,,
I will not write more because ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, you know,,,

Rubina Sahiba,

Your article is very informative. Most of us out here are aware of Blackwater and what they did in Iraq . But it is extremely essential that general public in Pakistan should be made aware of it. The leadership in Pakistan is basically serving the foreign powers to get their own foreign bank accounts padded up. The kind of article that you have written should be published in each and every paper in Pakistan . I hope you have sent it to a few papers.

The US is having trouble in Afghanistan , what they could not accomplish there, they would like to accomplish it in Pakistan . The mercenaries like the Blackwater are essential for the US to do their dirty work without making it look like American government’s hand in the muck.

Now you know why, Musharraf was pressured by the US to let the BB come in. It is her, or husband in power, it makes no difference to the US , as long as they do what Uncle Sam tells them to do at the cost of average Pakistani and the future of Pakistan itself as a country.

Although the US is paying about a billion dollars a year for survival, but people should know it well that it is a bad deal for Pakistan . The cost to Pakistan for accepting this money is several billion dollars a year and also it is losing the industrial and economic race with the rest of the region, especially India .

Regards,

Javed

DEAR RUBINA,
 
I AM SURPRISED TO LEARN THAT FOTH HAD A MEETING TO INTRODUCE MR IZHAR, AN  EX, GOVT.  OF PAKISTAN OFFICER. I HAD NO INFORMATION OR INVITATION  ABOUT THAT MEETING.  I WOULD WONDER IF S.U. PERVAIZ  OR DR. KHALID SOHAIL OR BOTH OF THEM WOULD NOT LIKE MY PRESENCE & PARTICIPATION IN FOTH FUNCTIONS.
 
ANY WAY, I AM EAGER TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL OFFICER. WHERE IS HE AND WHAT IS HIS CONTACT ?   I HAVE HAD THE HONOUR OF SERVING THE GOVT.OF PAKISTAN FROM 1974 TO 1992 BUT UNFORTUNATELY COULD NOT MEET OR KNOW MR. IZHAR.
 
PAKISTAN HAS NEVER BEEN SHORT OF SUCH SCRUPULOUSLY HONEST OFFICERS.  I REMEMBER DURING MR. ZA BHUTTO'S REGIME, TWO VERY SENIOR AND POWERFUL OFFICERS WHOSE INTEGRITY AND HONESTY WERE ABOVE BOARD. ONE WAS MR. HAMID JALAL, AN ADDL SECRETARY AND SPECIAL ASSISTANT OF THE P.M. MR. HAMID JALAL, ( WHO WAS REAL NEWPHEW OF SAADAT HASAN MINTO), USED TO WRITE SPEECHES FOR THE P.M.FOR IMPORTANT OFFICIAL FUNCTIONS, AND PREPARE DRAFTS OF LETTERS THE P.M. USED TO SEND TO FOREIGN DIGNITARIES.  THE SECOND OFFICER WAS MR. AFZAL SAEED, CSP, ADDL SECRETARY & SPECIAL ASSISSTANT OF THE P.M.WHO USED TO PREPARE ALL THE ORDERS THE P.M.WANTED TO GIVE TO THE MINISTERS, MINISTERIES, PROVINCES, DEFENSE DEPTT.S, ETC.  MR. AFZAL SAEED WAS THE HUSBAND OF MOULANA MOUDOODI'S REAL NEICE.  SIMILARLY THERE WERE SOME JUDGES LIKE MR.HALEEM, ETC.   AMONG ARMY PERSONNELS,  GENERAL ATTIQU-UR- REHMAN, GEN AKHTAR HUSSAIN MALIK , ETC. 
 
I HAVE HAD THE CHANCE AND  HONOUR OF MEETING THESE OFFICERS VERY OFTEN AT THEIR RESIDENCES AND IN PRIVATE FUNCTIONS BUT NEVER HEARD THEM UTTERING A WORD ON POLITICS, OR OFFICIAL MATTERS THEY WERE HANDLING, ETC. OREOVER, THEY NEVER IMPOSED THEIR PERSONALITIES AND NEVER MADE A PENNY-WORTH OF ADVANTAGE OF THEIR OFFICIAL POSITION.     
 
RUBINA ! YOU HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB TO INTRODUCE AN HONEST OFFICER IN MR. IZHAR. I WISH I MAY GET A CHANCE TO TELL THIS  YOUNGER GENERATION ABOUT THOSE HONOURABLE PUBLIC SERVANTS WHOSE CHARACTER HAD AVOIDED ALLAH'S CURSE ON PAKISTAN.  BEST REGARDS. SKY

DEAR RUBINA,
 
WELL SAID AND VERY WELL EXPRESSED.. CONGRATULATIONS.  I WAS SHOCKED TO LEARN THAT MY " HONEST COMMENTS" ON SHAOOR-E-NIWAN MEETING OF 11TH JULY HURT NASEEM SYED. 
ANOTHER SHOCK WAS WHEN I LEARNED THAT A TALL, COURAGEOUS S.U.PERVAIZ  BLOCKED THAT ARTICLE FROM FOTH SITE.
FORTUNATELY I MET NASEEM   (WHO IS TO ME.... JUST LIKE MY YOUNGER SISTER & FOR WHOM I HAVE GREAT RESPECT & REGARD) , LAST WEEK WHILE WE WERE TOGETHER FOR RECORDING FOR A TV PROGRAM,  OUR POETRY AND COMMENTING ON THE FUTURE OF URDU IN CANADA. THERE I FELT HER ANGER AND APOLOGIZED TO HER  & SHE WAS GOOD ENOUGH TO FORGIVE ME FOR SOME OF MY SHARP REMARKS IN THAT ARTICLE.
NOW REGARDING THE MEETING OF "WRITERS FORUM", I HAVE ALSO WRITTEN A FEW PARAGRAPHS WHICH I AM PASSING ON TO S.U.P. AND HOPE, HE WILL NOT HAVE TO BLOCK IT OR EDIT IT.
I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU THAT POETS AND WRITERS SHOULD NOT BEHAVE LIKE POLITICIANS OR MULLAHS.  GOOD.  HOWEVER, IF THE POETS AND WRITERS CAN COMMENT ON THE SOCIETY, Politicians,  MULLAHs , ETC, THEY SHOULD ALSO  HAVE A LOIN'S-HEART TO LISTEN AND TOLERATE  COMMENTS & CRITICISM AGAINST THEM TOO. AND THAT IS THE SPICE OF LIFE

I have read another article written by Rubina Faisal  "Aik adabi shaam"  which can also be titled, in English, as "I have a dream". The writer has expressed a wish to see the writers and poets beloning
to different literary forums together under the same roof. It is quite a reasonable dream for a writer who wishes coherence between different literary forums in a city. Please let me also add that coherence among the writers and poets belonging to different literary forums in a city can be
enhanced when they can often converse together. They may have different opinions during a literary discussion but all will comprehend what is being discussed. Such a comprehension can be very good for all of them and in these times of communication it is convenient too.

Dear Robina Faisal Sahibah, 

The benefit that we generally derive by reading short stories, essays or novels is that we get to know some thing about the cultural, social, economic and political conditions and circumstances of the period and the environment in which the stories were written. I will have to admit, I have not had an opportunity to read all your short stories or columns but a few that I have read, I find them commendable and praiseworthy pieces of literature. You have consistently raised thought provoking questions and concerns whereby, most people have demonstrated indifference and if reacted at all, they only showed the reaction by perpetuating the majority opinion following the herd instincts rather than indulging in critical thinking or showing any originality.   

Recently I had the pleasure of reading your column, ‘ Main Taliban Nahin’. Allow me to make a few comments on this essay.  

You have touched upon various societal problems in terms of ideologies and poor self image that is displayed by many in our community. You have alluded, perhaps reluctantly,  that you are not ‘modern’ hence your ways of looking at various religious and social issues may be somewhat different from those who consider themselves ‘modern’. When it comes to modernity, you are perhaps as modern as you ought to be.  But the problem is that many others may be chasing the trails to become western, rather than being modern. They may have lost or probably never learned that there is a subtle difference between being modern and being Western. Many members of our community are in a hurry to become western. In the process, they have lost their own identity as well as the sense of right and wrong. They are blinded by the glitter of the West and have ceased to think for themselves. 

When talking about the Taliban, we must draw a line of clear distinction between the Afghan Taliban and those of TTP of (FATA) Wazirestan and Swat region. Pakistan never had any problems with the former, while the latter are not really Taliban at all, I would call them pseudo-Taliban. They are nothing but thieves and thugs following a few short sighted thug leaders getting paid by the foreign powers to destabilize Pakistan in the interest of supporting the geo-political plans of the imperialists. In your essay, you mentioned the case of Yvone Ridely, that is a testament to my support for the Afghan Taliban. We know, their ideologies are at least 200 years behind times, but at least they do not bother any one and mind their own affairs within their own country. At present, they are doing exactly what all the Afghan did during 1980s – fighting the invaders. 

FATA thugs are trying to do the same what was done to India in mid 19th century and the country was consequently lost to a trading company which was then taken over by the British Empire. Balochistan is also a hot spot for similar uprising.  

The term ‘fundamentalism’ has unfortunately acquired a political oriented negative connotation. There is nothing wrong in being an adherent to some basic and fundamental good qualities. Most religions and ethical systems  emphasize on some basic requirements, such as: do not steal, do not lie, be good to others as you wish other to be to you etc. The adherence to these fundamental values could qualify one to be the fundamentalist. But, in order to put the basic religious values into a negative light, certain groups in the West have come up with the term fundamentalism to highlight the political connotation and make the basic and simple meanings ambiguous and murky. 

You have touched upon the murder of the Egyptian woman with hijab in Germany. This is clearly an example and the consequence of ignorance and personal prejudice. We must not overlook the fact that our own people in Pakistan, are not without such problems. In fact, ignorance and prejudice against other nations, religions and ideologies is rampant throughout the world.  

With Best Regards, 

Javed I. Chaudry

Hi Rubina,
 
Your short stories (Afsanay) are not only good but have some class.
The observations, the narration, the flow, the coherence, all are
appreciable and show a touch of maturity. Allah Karay Zor-e-Qalam
aur Ziadah !
As far as your column on Taliban is concerned, I have some
reservations on that. Looks like you also have been influenced by the
Jamaati or Jamiati propaganda regarding them. Taliban are the worst
kind of beasts, methodically developed by our intelligence agencies,
politicians and above all by the mindset of our own Pakistani people.
Why blame drone drivers for that?
Any way, taking advantage of this mail, let me make a personal 
complaint to you.
In 2007, when we established Artists and Writers' Guild and were
planning to hold the first Pakistani Drama Festival, I contacted you
through your brother. Ultimately I succeeded in talking to you and you
told me that in August you will be in Pakistan. OK.
Last year I tried to make a number of calls to you, ultimately bothered
your brother, who said call her on her Cell. But I believe none of my
messages reached you.
This year, we are holding the third Pakistani Drama Festival on 
September 26th at the same Burnhamthorpe Library Theatre Hall. I
would urge you to get in touch and contribute one half-hour Play. You
and the kids, I saw at the Hindustani Festival, three years ago, have
talent and a contribution to the Pakistani audience would be a good
getsture.
By the way this attempt, to hold a Pakistani Festival was intitiated,
when our friend ........ objected to the Pakistan Zindabad slogans
raised by my sister and your group.
My personal wish is creation of a team of young and old Pakistanis,
who should takeover this flag and hold cultural activities for the
Pakistani diaspora. 
I will wait for a positive response from you.
My phone number is : 416.315.5065 and e-mail address:
 
Thanks and fondest regards.

  Assalamu Alaikum,  I thoroughly enjoyed your column-Keep it up. Is it possible to write about problems Muslims and Pakistanis are facing in Canada. As a social worker, I have found that people are having difficult time, but they are in denial. I even had  problems with my late wife and
my three children who were born, raised and educated in Canada. My own experience is that our bodies are here but our souls are in Pakistan. We have Pakistani political parties, Urdu newspapers discussing problems ,we do not have any solutions. We are fragmented on political, religious and even on ethnic lines i.e. punjabis, pathans, sindhis and boalochis. These few lines are just food for thought.
Sincerely,
Abdul Ghafoor Chaudhry.
 
 
 

Rubina ji,

 

Asslamo Alaykum,

 

Thanks for forwarding me link of your column of the week about Taliban.   I read it.  About my questions and comments, here are point blank comments.

 

Al Hamdo Lillah, you have migrated from Pakistan to Canada as per Sunnah, as per your personal profile.  I appreciate it.  At the same time, I wonder how about Sunnah of Allah?  Have you thought about this any moment?  Just refer to only one Ayat 104 of Surah Aal-e-Imran.

 

First let me comment on your article of the week.  How many talibans and Pakistani resident have read your article of the week?  You are in Canada according to Sunnah, so why don’t you take up the hot burning topics and subjects of Canadian Muslims, when Allah has bestowed you with the Qalam (pen)?  You have mentioned in your article about an Egyptian pregnant woman in court of Germany. You have also mentioned about Dr. Afiya Siddiqui. They both are not in Canada.  You being in North America according to Sunnah, why don’t you write about the cases of Aqsa Parvez of Canada and Sandeela Kanwal of U.S.A., who had been brutally murdered in the name of Islam?  These are just two examples of domestic violance and abuse to women in North America in the name of Deen-e-Islam.

 

You have also mentioned about Maddof, who cheated Amercans.  Why don’t you write about our own Muslims mullahs, aamil, ja’ali roohani peshwa etc. who are cheating our own innocent Muslims thousands and thousands of their hard earned dollars by selling them wazeefa, ta’aweez, naqsh, loh, dua, asma-ul-husna in the name of Deen-e-Islam as an open and day light robbery through Pakistani community newspapers’ ads. and their weekly columns?

 

Just see few attachments and think about Sunnah of Allah first.  I can write pages and pages on this, but presently this is enough.

 

Thanks and regards.

 

May Allah forgive me, if I have erred.

 

WA MA ALAYNA ILLAL BALAAGH.

 

Wasalam.

DEAR RUBINA,
 
INDEED A VERY NICE ARTICLE ..... BUT ... A  SHEER WASTE OF YOUR TALENT. I WISH IT WOULD HAVE BEEN IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE.  THIS THOUGHT PROVOKING ARTICLE, THIS SATIRE, IS BEYOND BEYOND MENTAL RANGE OF AN AVERAGE URDU READER.   WHEREAS IN ENGLISH, IT WOULD HAVE STIRRED THE CONSCIENCE OF MANY CANADIANS, AMERICANS AND OUR OWN YOUNGSTERS WHO CAN-NOT READ AND UNDERSTAND 'URDU'. 
 
YOU ARE A YOUNG LADY (GIRL FOR ME) AND YOU SHOULD WRITE FOR THE YOUNGER GENERATION OF MUSLIMS BORN & BROUGHT UP IN UK , EUROPE, USA AND CANADA.               DO YOU WRITE FOR THOSE 'OLD HOGS'  WHO ATTEND FOTH  & SUCH OTHER ORGANIZATIONS..... OR..... FOR  A COUPLE OF THOSE WHO HAVE TIME TO CHECK E-MAILS  ?            YOU HAVE ALREADY SEEN THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE AND THEIR AGES WHO ATTEND  URDU LITERARY-MEETINGS !
 
THIS TYPE OF AN ARTICLE SHOULD BE IN ENGLISH AND GOOD TO BE PUBLISHED NOT ONLY IN THE 'SUNDAY TIMES'  BUT IN THE TORONTO SUN OR STAR
 
WITH BEST REGARDS: SKY

Salaam Rubina,
I wonder where you got my email address from? Thank you for sending me your article. I enjoyed reading it.
 
I went to your website and enjoyed reading your bio. Very interesting that you are an "Immigration advisor"? or Officer is it? I was just wondering if you do any pro-bono work or just sometimes give advice to people who are in need of it?
 
affectionately yours
Shaheen
 
  Dear Rubina
I am much impressed with your "sentimental" article. However it does not take into account the facts of history of Taliban and their deeds when they were in control. I wrote a complete critique on your article but it was send back by the email server. If I get a reply from you I shall send that againd. For your information I am a 76 years old retired engineer and have gone through the "sard and garm" of life i.e. through thick and thin of life.
For the present may I request you to read the article in the Editorial section of Khabrain dated 14 May 2009 under the caption "Dehshat gardi and Zamini Haqaaiq" i.e. terrorism and facts on the ground written by Murtaza Mohsan under the heading Izhar-e-Khiaal.
If you keep writing sentimental stories you will remain a story teller (although it will not be a mean achievement) but if you would like to become a scholar then please find the historical performance and ground affects of all about whom you write.
With Regards

Thank you for an excellent column.

Lateef Owaisi

 
  Dear Rubina Sahiba,
I read with interest your column ‘Nahi(N) Nahi(NO Mei(N) Taliban Nahi(N) Hu(N). It left me confused and bewildered.
You have tried linking the Taliban to bizarre incidents like stabbing of a pregnant Muslim woman in a court room and the case of Afia Siddiqui.
I do not know if you are justifying the Taliban based on the excesses of other countries or you are fundamentally against the people who tangentially called Jangli and Jangi.
Whether American does what it does in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan (and elsewhere) does not take away what the Taliban are doing to the fabric of Pakistani society. I am sure you, as an educated intellectual literary figure, would not like the barbaric practices of the Taliban to be imposed in Pakistan. So when it comes to condemning them we should not preface our condemnation with what others are doing. Otherwise it turns into a macabre reversal that borders on condoning the actions of these Barbarians.
With kindest regards,
Amjad Hussain

I was fortunate to read your column titled: "nahin nahin main Taliban nahin". It was such a touching treatment of this highly maligned and misunderstood subject. The hype of the media confuses people so much and unfortunately the western media is treated like a gospel in part of our society. Talking sense in such circumstances seems to have become "support for Taliban". Pakistani Taliban have no support in Pakistan as they are Pakistan's enemy, but what about the innocent people of swat who have been uprooted from their homes and thrown in tents in this heat.
 Like you, I believe Imran Khan is also paying the price for speaking the truth.
 
Thanks for this column and expressing these sentiments so tenderly. It is highly appreciated.
With warm regards.

  Hello dear  Rubina
 
Thank you so much to send  an e mail with yr column link  
I saw you in saturday function .but as i had an accident couldn't get chance to walk come to you and talk. 
I like your efforts and way of writing. Wishing if you come in my programs under urdu club

Salam Bibiji,
Some of your columns are way better than many of those published in the Urdu dailies here in Pakistan. Why don't you contact a daily here and share your views with the Urdu readership that is subjected to the routine humbug?
Of course, you will have to be a little more economical with words because of the space constraints.

  I have read another article written by Rubina Faisal "Aik adabi shaam"
which can also be titled, in English, as "I have a dream".
The writer has expressed a wish to see the writers and poets belonging
to different literary forums together under the same roof. It is quite a
reasonable dream for a writer who wishes coherence between different
literary forums in a city. Please let me also add that coherence among
the writers and poets belonging to different literary forums in a city can be enhanced when they can often converse together. They may have different opinions during a literary discussion but all will comprehend what is being discussed. Such a comprehension can be very good for all of them and in these times of communication it is convenient too.

Hi Rubina,
 
As usual thought provoking piece of writing.  Thanks a lot.
 
As you have mentioned that a person, who is an artist, admits that physical pains do not ail him to that extent which he feels from spiritual ailment.  Why in our society, nobody has inner self alive?
 
If we have courage to ponder over the 'rise &  fall of the nations', we can conclude that a nation rises to the top when the distance between 'Code of life' and 'Conduct of the nation' is 'zero'.  And to whatever extent this distance increases, the ratio of 'hypocrisy' increases with the same ratio. If we want to draw a diagram of our nation.............al-hafeez, wal-amaan!!!

  Thank you for sending the link.
I enjoyed your article.
I was with a Spanish friend and heard it on Spanish net: Telemondo that MJ had embraced Islam and will get a Muslim burial. (His brother also is a Muslim).
But no where on US TV did we hear this!?

Lots of prayers for your success.

Thank you for your most recent article a tribute to MJ. A master piece in many ways. You have stated therein and you so right that once a person is put in the grave; this grave has only one color and that is that of dirt. There is no difference based on color, creed, race, faith, sect or ethnicity. However, in our homeland even after burial, the religion zealots may not like your faith or sect and may order to remove the corpse and buried somewhere else. You may read such articles or news items in the newspapers. Alas they would let them rest in peace and not humiliate the dead body. May Allah, give us the courage to follow the true faith and not be divided into sects and groups.
 
Sincerely Yours,

Hi Rubina,
 
Thank you for another eye-opener. 
 
But it seems, unfortunately,  this is only we, very few, who are restless day and night for our country and people? 
 
We, as a nation, must challenge this vicious circle which munches all our resources and capabilities? 
 
We, all together, must make every possible effort to bring a change that can make this part of world peaceful and worth-living? 
 
I believe, this is possible, but only through education!

DEAR RUBINA,
 
I VERY MUCH APPRECIATE YOUR VIEWS AND TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOUR COMMENTS......BUT..... HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT THE USEFULNESS OF YOUR ARTICLES  ?  I WONDER IF ANY ONE IN PAKISTAN READS THESE COMMENTS AND EVEN DOUBT IF THESE COMMENTS REACH PAKISTAN AT ALL.
 
AS FAR CANADIANS OF PAKISTAN ORIGIN, MAJORITY OF THEM HAVE NO TIME TO READ SUCH ARTICLES AND SOME OF THEM ARE EVEN INCAPABLE OF USING A P.C. 
 
REGARDING PAKISTANI NEWSPAERS ( ALMOST ALL OF THEM PUBLISHED ONCE A WEEK) HERE, THEY ARE NOTHING BUT A JUNK OF RUBIBSH, OUT OF DATE DATA (NEWS & ARTICLES) ALREADY PUBLISHED IN NEWSPAERS  IN PAKISTAN.    IN REALITY THESE ARE NOT NEWSPAPERS BUT ADVERTISMENT SUPPLEMENTS. MAJORITY OF THEIR DECORATED "CHIEF EDITORS"  ARE NIOTHING MORE THAN BEGGARS WHOM YOU MAY SEE AT THE DOORS OF SHPS & OFFICES ASKING FOR CHARITY FOR THE ADs PUBLISHED IN THEIR SO CALLED NEWSPAPES.
 
WE BLONG TO THAT DISGRACEFUL COMMUNITY WHICH PUBLISHES EVERY WEEK 19 "SO CALLED" NEWSPAPERS  BUT COULD NOT PRODUCE ONE "DAILY NEWSPAPER"  IN OUR NATIONAL LANGUAGE. THEY PROJECT ANY ONE WHO WOULD PAY THEM A FEW HUNDRED CHIPS.    FRAUDS WHO HAVE BECOME  M.A.s IN SOCIALOGY & ENGLISH LITERATURE AS AND AFTER THEY CROSSED THE ATLANTIC OCEAN,  AND CHEATERS WHO HAVE NEVER SEEN THE DOOR STEPS OF A COLLEGE OR  A UNIVERSITY BUT HAVE BECOME  A Ph.D,  HERE, ARE PATRONS OF THESE NEWSPAPERS !   THESE WEEKLIES DO NOT HAVE THE MORALE  OR COURAGE  EVEN TO PUBLISH A VERSION, HOW TRUE IT MAY BE, WHICH MIGHT ANNOY THEIR FINNACING PATRONS .... THE CHEATS & FRAUDS !
 
SO MY YOUNG GOOD GIRL !   WRITE SOMETHING IN ENGLISH AND SUBSCRIBE YOUR ARTICLES  IN LOCAL ENGLSIH NEWSPAPERS SO THAT OUR YOUNGER GENERATION, THAT CAN NOT READ URDU, MAY BE BENEFITTED OF YOUR KNOWELDGE & EXPERIENCE,  PLEASE DO NOT LET YOUR NOBLE AND VALUABLE IDEAS GO ASTRAY BY WRITING IN URDU.

i read your article about madoff. it is really very much thought provoking. the way you have conveyed your feelings is really taking to the bottom lines.

thanks and best regards..........

RUBINA:

Very appropriately articulated comparison of Mr. Madoff and his cusion Zardari. 

The answer to you question is simple; one of the parties has to bear the consequences and it is the law of the jungle. So in America Madoff is going to rotten his life in jail while people enjoy the freedom. In Pakistan, the people will be tormented in the confinements while Zardari will be enjoying his freedom. It is a predatory world, the big fish will eat the small fish....

 

Good job, keep sharing the fragrance of your writings....

  Dear Ms Rubina Faisal

I don't know your back ground or knowledge base but what is displayed from teh writings is offering a lot for me to have a different point of view. One should be very careful that his/her writings may not be used as charge sheer against any community, society or individual.

I wonder if you have gone through the history of sub continent. Let me remind you very few things one by one.
After the WWII, when USA is taking over as a new colonial master of the world and British were backing out from their colonies, the US tried to run the affairs of newly indepdnent Pakistan through the Army Accounts Service and Ghulam Muhammad, Khawaja Nazim ud Din etc were given this assignment. However, when they failed to oerform then a serving general was aksed to become secretary defense and then Chief Martial Administrator and then President and then Field Martial and all their acknowledgements were made by the USA.

One more thing. When Pakistan won independence, it's foreign office send two requests to two different super powers---- one to USA and other to USSR for official head of state visits. USSR never accorded that request (and it is propaganda of some of misguided people in the beau racy that USSR had invited Mr Liaqat Ali Khan) while USA invited the Prime Minister of Pakistan Liaqat Ali Khan. However, there was a flat refusal from the US side for any assistance in shape of Ammunation and other supplies for Defense. However, its army officers was offered a training, which was refused by Jinnah and then Mr Khan for obvious reasons. However, immediately after the assassination of Liaqat Ali Khan, Pakistan entered into deals (Seato and CENTO) with USA and training of top army ranking was started. Now no officer can win promotion beyond Brig. without doing a year long course in Pentagone. So the deviation from the actual direction of the country started on that very day. This practice is on and on till today.

Now please consider for a moment, why everything went wrong and is going wrong in this country.

I can speak on this issue for hours while quoting volumes authentic books but I am just dropping hint for your thoughts. Hope you would not mind considering the real culprits of this whole drama and stop beating the bush like many other agents of US colonialism which they are doing continuously.

Cheers

Razi

Mrs. Rubina:

I have enjoyed your beautiful piece of work. You have addressed highly valid issues. I agree with your analysis that the excellence in journalism is a rare commodity in Pakistani media; which I clearly blame to their inferior academic background, poor working environment, longer hours, and lower wages.

Keep sharing your scholarly scripts with us.

Kind wishes for you & your family.

Habib Khan.

I am agree with you; this is the responsibility of every one not even save Muslim but save human kind.

Wherever wrong practice is going on and destruction Humans beings are running, we should condemn them. One should have work for best interest of each others.

You are blessed that you have quality to write not even that you are blessed with courage to do as well. Subhan Allah.

Our nation needs the Mums like you…

May Allah Subhan grant you more courage, sefty and respect.

Hi Rubina,
 
I'm reader of your articles since few months.  
 
You are absolutely right that we never listened to the call of the time.  Democracy for us is 'election campaign', 'slogans', 'votes for money' and that's it.  No rights, no responsibilities, no ethics, no character, no God's fear..................... politicians here have only one agenda............MAKE MONEY..............
 
As a nation what we need is to strengthen the institutions, promote education, set our new priorities.  However, if we are not willing to do this, then unfortunately, BEGGARS HAVE NO DIGNITY IN THE EYES OF THE DONORS.
 
God bless you.  Keep it up.  As Faraz said:
 
Shikwa-e-zulmat-e-shab se tao kahiN behtar tha
appney hissey kee koi shamaa' jalaatey jaatey.

  Dear Sister Rubina

Very thoughtful and well written column that has sent ripples within ripples in my heart and mind. Thanks for sharing it with me.

Unfortunately, we have become a nation who has completely lost sense of dignity. Every opportunity that presents itself is dividing us further and there are no intellectuals who could take reigns at this crucial time, and direct the nation on a path that ensures a dignified future.

Back in 70s when the war in Afghanistan started, no one had consulted these poor Swati people. The war was not started with their consent or approval. So now why are they paying the price? These poor people were suffering in their poverty then, these poor people are suffering in their poverty now. And no one knows how long will they suffer.

Let us pray for them and the watan-e-azeez.

W'salam

Dear  Ms  Rubina,
 
You have a very good style in expressing your feelings  BUT I beg to slightly differ, this time, in the selection of your topic. These Radicals & Fundamentalists deserve total elimination. Pakistan government has been quite late in taking action against them. They are a greater threat to the existence of Pakistan than India or Israel.
 
Please tell me if you can live in circumstances where women are not allowed to come out of their houses, no education for girls, no right to see TV or Cinema, no use of cosmetics,  no right to stop husband from marrying another 3 women, allow him to enjoy Slave girls without Nikkah, etc. Do you believe that a thief's hand be amputated OR a man or woman who commits Adultery be stoned ?  Can you, in this age,  afford to observe 'Pardah' with any person who is your 'Naa-Mehrum' i.e. a person with whom you could have married ?
 
Would you like to follow the Shariyath (Rules) framed more than a 1,000 years agao,  by Abu Hanifa, Shafa'ee, Malik, Humble or Jaffer Sadiq ? Those good old people had no concept of this modern world, TV, Cell Phone, Computer, Internet, Tape Records, Cameras. Aeroplanes, Cars, Trains, Tanks, Sub marines, Banks, Trading, Industry,  etc.
 
Those poor good old scholars had no idea that more than 350 million Muslims would be living in Non-Muslim States. The Rules they had framed were applicable on and practical for Muslims living in Muslim States !
 
If Islam is a Progressive Religion, ( what I think it is ) , we have to reframe the Rules accroding to the requirements of the TIME. This job cannot be done by Talibaan or those Sunni or Shia Clergy which has Hi-jacked  Islam.    
 
So, my Dear Young Writer,  do not become too emotional. You cannot compare the death of this Captain with that of Major Aziz Bhatti. The fact is that this sacrifice is far greater than the one  done by Aziz Bhatti. I was in Lahore in 1965, a 32 years old young man( now in my 77th year), and have been a wtiness of all the events as I was enjoying a high social status.  Major Aziz Bhatti got the Nishan-Haider, on the basis of  "Citation". It was infact Major Shafqat Baluch who actually saved Lahore when his Company blew out the BRB Bridge at Batapur and prevented Indian Tanks & Armed Cars to enter into the city. I have read the Secret Report "Debacles of 1965 War" written by late General Akhtar Hussain Malik. However, it is a story of the age when you were probably not born.
 
You have a natural flow in your writing . Keep it up but let it flow  in the Rght Channel.
 
With Best Wshes, Yours Sincerely,

I totally agreed with you, we have to bring festivity in our relations and one should not mix culture and traditions in to Islam… We should not always talk about the SAZA but have to speak JAza, I mean positive attitude towards life and relations with peoples/nature not only for Muslims. May Allah Subhan bless us with true leadership. Ameen

Salam O Alikum
 
I m here to discuss your coloumn which you have printed in the Daily Maizbaan NewsPaper. I have red all your points and the way you are telling the muslim ummah about the irregularties of the people in this world.
 
I only want to ask you why you people called Mukhtara Maiee again and again you people have make her a celebrity and giving her a fame in this World. What kind of sympathy you have towards her. Whenever you find the rape incident anywhere you immediately hit the Mukhtara Maiee i want to ask you why you do this. If she had been curse by such a incident you always want her to remind this throughout her life. I think this is not the humanity it means that women can't survive in this world every one look her with a bad and undisputed vision.
 
Please Please it is my humble request stop making your news to be on hot bubbles by using her name on your top headlines. If you want to do something for the society First change the law and order of the country and muslim ummah then come out with your thinking and facts. Don't just print the News Paper with the examples try to do something by yourself so that everyone can know you have done this.

AssalamOAlaiakaum Respected Sister,

With ref. to your columns, just two comments:

1- Regarding Hijab:

   - Those sisters who wear hijab and do bad things are WRONG.
   - Additionaly those sisters who think that to wear Hijab is a useless thing are also WRONG.

 BOTH aspects are mandatory. You can neither under-estimate one, nor the other.

 2- With ref. to one of your another column, just to mention,  a Muslim should not do "Gilla-shikwa" from Creator.

 May ALLAH make us true Muslims and when we go from this world, we go as HIS true Believers. Aameen

 Jazak ALLAH for listening from my side. Please remember me in your precious Duas.

Dear Rubina,

I agree with you in the current climate one should take these things with a grain of salt and should be careful while reacting to every news or video footage. We cannot overlook the bigger strategy to destabilize the Muslim societies that are already fragile. West does not mind killing Muslim women and children (Many of 1300 killed in Gaza were women and children and Canada refused to condemn Israel) but they appear to be fierce advocate of Muslim women rights. What a munafiq they are?

(In no way I am denying the fact that Muslim societies need reform. I have personal reasons to favor equal rights for women as I am a father of two daughters)

agar woh Sincere hain tu apany Muslim brohter kay bejay EUROPE main aur Ameriaca mai attack karain,,,
laikin ye sub agent hain aur shaid aap ghalit se unn agent ki tarjumani karna chah rhee hain..
Maaf kijiay aurat kay saath zulm har society main hain but TALIBAN jo islam Musallat karna chah rhay hain uss main shaid aurton kay saath kuch zyada he Na Insaafi hai.

Wah Ji Waj Kia baat hai aapki? Dil Khol kar likha hai. Altaf bhai ko London main baith kar koi kam naheen hota karnay kay lia to sra din statement jari kartay rehay hain ya telephonic Khatab.
on the serious note Sawat problem is very complicated. Our main problem is lack of education so illetrate people can be lead anywhere. They can persuade a dream of Jannat if some molive show him, 500,000 Ruppees if he and his family is hungry. There are many social problems we are facing and what we seeded in last 60 years we are cultivating now. Very intelligent leadership we neet to overcome these issue but as u said hamaray leader saray K……. hain.

Why not raise this kind of topic with Family of the Heart.

I feel we all want to know the plight of the South Asian woman both in her terribly conflicted native land and in her equally conflicted new domicile, what she's thinking, saying, and doing, and how she's coping in a faithless ecology where her body, mind and soul remain famished and unfulfilled.

Hi, this is Iftikhar from Karachi, Pakistan. Today I have visited your site after opening link sent to me by my friend regarding "Shor Main Asal Awaz Dab Jati Hai", Really a nice Article written by you, also I have read not all but some of fictions & Poetry written by you, I found them all very nice. 

I myself have tried to write some poetry, there was a time when I always think that how people write poetries, how that soul touching & mind blowing stuff comes to their mind, but I now come to know that time is a big teacher it teaches you everything.

Any way I will appreciate you for your this effort in our society like Pakistan.

DEAR MS RUBINA, 

WHAT A CO-INCIDENCE !  ONLY DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY, I STONGLY PROTESTED ON THE ARTICLE OF SYED SADRUDDIN HASAN WHO WITHOUT VERIFYING THE FACTS CONDEMNED TALIBAAN  ON THE 'SO CALLED' SWAT INCIDENT.   IN MY E-MAIL, I  POINTED OUT THE SAME FACTS WHICH YOU OBSERVED & MENTIONED IN YOUR ARTICLE. 

I SENT A COPY OF MY REMARKS TO TARIQ KHAN AND NOW FORWARDING THE SAME TO YOU ASLO.   BEST REGARDS: SKY

  Dear Rubina Faisal I read your poem آدھا دھڑ۔, liked it but Insha'Allah I'm hopeful from my Great Allah that He will keep our beautiful country safe, because there must be a reason that He gave us this country through Quaid-e-Azam

Unfortunately our country is in the hands of corrupt people like Zardari, Musharraf , Altaf Hussain & several other people like him but Insha'Allah one day it will be rulled by Justice & according to the rulling of Almighty Allah

Congratulations! on writing a very comprehensive letter to the newly reinstated Chief Justice and I am simply speechless, all I can say is “Rubina Zindabad.”

Your letter addresses all pertinent question and issues. I hope and pray that he reads your letter attentively and channels the momentum of public energy for the welfare of people, not for the support of any political opportunists.

Keep on helping the people with the power of your superb writings.

Best wishes.

  Dear Rubina Sahiba,
Thanks for sending me some of your short stories which I have enjoyed reading. They certainly reflect quite accurately the prevailing social conditions and concerns of the intended environment.

From you website I note that you had written an article comparing Gen. Zia and Z. Bhutto. I did could not find it on your website; I would be interested to read this if you would be so kind to mail it to me.

From your biography I note that you arrived in Canada quite recently. It is certainly very commendable that in such a short time and during difficult times, you have not only settled in the new country but you are progressing at an extremely good pace.

I also note that you are an M.A in English; perhaps you should consider comparing English literature with that of Urdu literature. If you ever decide to write on the subject, please do remember to send me your work on the subject.

Good luck and keep up the good work

MEAN TIME PRAYS FOR PEACE IN PAKISTAN. NAWAZ SHAREEF, LIKE ZARDARI. IS CORRUPT, AMBITIOUS AND SELF-CONCEITED PERSON WHO HAS ROBBED THE COUNTRY IN THE PAST AND IS POWER-HUNGRY? THE TWO ROBBERS ARE FIGHTING FOR POWER. . UNFORTUNATE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO STILL HAVE FAITH IN THESE CHEATS & ROBBERS AND BELIEVE IN THEIR SINCERITY..

  Dear Pervaiz, I read rubina's short story today. I am impressed. I suggest that in one of our FOTH meetings we ask rubina to read this story and get feedback from the audience. one day she will become a famous writer...affectionately sohail  
  Respected Madam Rubina

Whenever, I read such kind of articles, news or watch the TV interviews containing the criticism on Taliban’s' or 'Islamic extremists' then I WONDER on the people who emphasize that all the evils as you 'wrote' in the column are done by those people (Taliban’s, etc). What our intelligence found and it is repeatedly said that those people are not Muslims, Taliban or Islamic Extremist, those are WHO ? THOSE ARE INDIANS, who disguise and intruded in those tribes and doing the evils so that Islam and Muslim could be demoralized and his honored.

When our genius people will understand the facts behind the walls. Could u pl write on the facts behind the wall?

Dear Rubina Faisal sahiba,

ASAK.Hope you're keeping well? I read your article: Yeh na karna...woh bhee...you have really reached the esteem of reality and the each of this is truly endless. Most people would like to succeed in small things by using misconnects of Islam and I think such kind of people unfortunately live in Canada. Its so true ...I've heard this recently from a couple that I met in Greece, were mentioning the same thing and they were from Ottawa. By writing such article, I think you're opening an eye of the blinds who do not know what going on in your part of the world .Something should be done about it, if not then you can create an opportunity for people to come together, have seminar on it, otherwise let other people provide a chance or an opportunity to be able to knock on....or build a door to be knocked at.

In the end, I would like to say CONGRATULATIONS on writing such a comprehensive issue that’s socially misguiding younger generation.

Lots of wishes.

Take Care

  Rubina:

Very timely and alerting article. This must be advertised in Pakistan and an alert be sent to all the people of our origin who live in the west including Europe, Australia and New Zeland. I am not very familiar with Canadian Immigration laws, as I have lived in the US 25 plus yrs. You are absolutely right that kids who are born and raised in this country are very innocent and do not know or understand the selfishness, insincerity and dealings of the current Pakistani culture. Therefore, you are so right that people living in the US and Canada must be very cautious if they want to marry in their own culture or back home. Do publish in as many newspapers in Canada as many you can. The title "pesha" sounds better.

Personally, I know of some stories and we can share. Only name charges the rest remains the same.

Was there a powerful magnet in that photo?

I really do not know.

The greater surprise was still waiting for my nerves! I read your columns and short stories and was amazed. Your stories,"maa'ey nee men kinnon aakhan " "apnay aangan men ajnabi ' were especially spellbinding !

it seldom, very seldom ,happens that a strikingly good looking women has a beautiful brain also ! ( You must have heard that dialogue between George Bernard Shaw and an actress ! ) The Distributor, on that Day, gave you in plenty on both sides! !

"This poem is written very good but i think that it is demodulating for the overseas Pakistanis whom want to come back and get settled. The sensitive writer like Rubina Faisal can enhance sense of motivation by writing and creating motivational poetry. These are my personal comments and may be wrong
But the fact is fact and can not be hide what is happening in our country but I just wanted to say we should engage ourselves in efforts to help our country in these troubled times."

  Rubina:

Thank you for your kind note and email with a very powerful article. Your article entitled "batoun ka daur" read with deep interest and keen enthusiasm. Thank you for such a beautiful article. We ehley dard all think the same way but the people in power in watan e aziz think totally in a very different, selfish and unique way. Only face changes, democracy or dictatorship does not bring any change. As long as their won't be complete justice for common and oppressed man there will be no change. You have quoted a few very fantastic examples of change. Made a good fun of it. Let me tell you "Allah karay zorey qalam aur ziada". May I suggest you as you are good write and are blessed by almighty Allah with a strong pen, please publish these articles in Pakistani media like " The Daily Jang". Electronic media is good too.

Moreover, please write about Adl or Insaf which is lacked by the executives of our motherland. I like when you defend the country by saying it our Maan. Keep up the great work and stay in touch. By the way, how is Afzaal Naveed doing? My regards to him.

  Dear Rubinaji,
A'dab-O-Khuloos.
I'm elated to read your wonderful article” BATON KA DOUR"One Hadith
says God has given us this tongue to make proper use of it. The tongue is the best gift of God. The best example is in 'SURA-E-REHMAN'.
I believe that the weak have one weapon; the errors of those who think they are strong.
People like Abbas Raza Gilani have plenty of 'pushing power’, but very little 'pulling power’. Probably, people like him doesn't want to hold on to pulling power. And if they do, they are apt to shrink from those
that lean upon them. Someone once said that: we are not so much creatures of habit as creatures of bad habits. What Indian movies show today is basically a celluloid invasion on Pakistani media. They’re
like a camera with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking...the prevailing nonsense today in our society is premature in their vision. They feel happy using bad tongue because they've
adopted negativism as their strength which they're using without a double share of wisdom.!

  Rubina,
This new style of your writing in poetry is excellent. I loved it.
The first poem is really the top poem. Witty and profound with musical cadence.
Second one is great. I imagine it could be improved to make it a bit more compact and sparkling and a little more dramatic, like the first one.
Third one expresses your feelings very well. For the line about 'third world ...' may be modified using "teeseri dunya ..." I would also like to comment as follows:
A poems can hold interest more easily if it is treated like a story. It may be story of an idea. In other words, it is developed as movement of thought that has a knocking of the beginning, complexity of the middle and resolution of the end. It unfolds progressively towards a climax. That is how the first poem sounds. Though it is short but it has all the drama and movement of a story. The last one, though contains an expression or observation of a grief, is doing it around one point. If you may try to weave the idea in some form of upward movement with a climax, it will become a great poem. (In fact, your third poem's title contains the word 'Dastan' - so my point )
Hope my sincere feedback is of some help. I feel honoured to have received these poem.
Kind regards,
Mutaal

  it is a very cruel poem. i agree with the first three lines, because it is an admitted fact, but a mother never deserves to be addressed in this tone. if you wanted to point out the fact in a reverse style that a son's feelings for his mother change after marrying, because his wife doesn't like to live with his mother. he remembers and recalls all her love and good training for him, but now he is annoyed and can't bear her any more.
I hate to criticize, and even now i don't mean to. i may be wrong, but being a mother it found it hurtful and disrespectful.
let's see what others say.

  Dear Ms. Rubina Faisal Saheba: Salaam o dua:
I am very impressed with your nicely written Urdu article on the above subject topic.
You have correctly identified the problems which are bothering all Muslim parents who are permanently settled in western countries.
Stories and examples of dichotomy and hypocrisy of some oriental persons in dealing with the western governmental systems are well-known to everyone. As a result the reputation of all culprits are negatively effecting the prestige of all oriental persons.

These problems are well known to all parents but what are the solutions ?

I wish all writers and observers ( including you ) would also present the solutions to these problems to make their articles more meaningful and useful for the parents and also for the readers.
Simply showing the mirror to everyone is not enough.

  Dear Madam

Right you are right, really time has again come create hurdles in the way of those who will come to power through the front doors, Keep on your work to destroy the last hope of Pakistani people. Yes of course you are right that your ( OUR ) past is dark, But you are cursing past and blaming the future . We know you and many others like you cannot spare those who have some relation with the voters of Pakistan.

It is not new for the people of Pakistan, Next time make a 29 minutes film, 29 seconds will not work.

Dear Rubina Fasil Sahiba, 

Greetings from Pakistan!!! As being a member of PJF I get the mails from Adeeb Sahib regularly. Of course his journalism is the signet that touches the very concerns of the people like us who are starving for equality, rights, justice, economic securities …………

Your Urdu article about the post election situation does not only seem empty words but rather the conscious and heart voice of all the people who along with me gave courage to the people to negate dictatorship and its supporters; using the power of votes; helping the people to have their computerized ID Cards and got their name enlisted as voters. This votes’ enlisting was as difficult as to the courage of the common people against the dictatorship and the ruling government before elections. 

After this great challenge we faced another confront which was to counter the phobia and trauma of the fear of Bomb blasts on election days………… transporting the voters…….   

While I read your article and shared it with our Patron Rev. Fr. Tariq Isaac he appreciated it and affirmed the voice of my conscious and heart saying “These are not Ms. Rubina’s words but rather the charter of demand of the silent voices whose eyes are still looking at us for the ways out to equality, rights, justice, economic securities ………… 

I do not know whether these silent voices and the expecting eyes upon can gain their expectations but at least they now have a medium of their voice from the people like you. So you seem to be the representatives of all the courageous people who risked with the power of their votes. 

So along with appreciation I salute you for being the voice of the voiceless in Pakistan. May God bless you, your family and bring worldly and spiritual gains and growth to you all.

With appreciation and salute, I am,

Hello Rubina

Your article (Mout Kabhi Khabar Thee) about tragic state of our beloved country is really thought provoking. You have spoken your heart with all force in your command. I will try to get it published in some daily Urdu newspapers of Pakistan or at least in those being published from Muzaffarabad, capital of Azad Kashmir. Stay in touch and keep sending such material. May God bless you.

Bhai Masroor 

Thanks for forwarding the article, in my view ( THE MOST DESPERATE ONE ) The writer of this article has conflicting views about the politics of Pakistan. The first impression which I

got is that he is deadly against the wishes of Pakistan, and a supporter of the Military rule in

Pakistan, He is angry with Musharraf only, because he at least twice managed to hold two elections ( Fair or unfair ) but he did not follow the ZIA UL HAQ who could not hold the elections during his rule. Practically author too is of the view that Actual rulers ( Armed )  who have ruled over Pakistan during last 50 years, are innocent. 

Yes of of course People of Pakistan dared to come out and poll against them, and their agents.

Actually election is itself a mean to achieve the ultimate goal, during last 50 years people of Pakistan has been driven away from the goal post. The Goal Post is far away from where it was in 1958. We have to cover long distances to reach back at that point. 

Any how as far as the art of writing is concerned it is a well written document.

In light mood last night I have written a Ghazal, please enjoy the few lines.

 Chalo circus,ya dekho Chidrya Ghar
  Sher - pinjrey badalney waley hein

Dear Rabina Naz Sahiba,  

Salam wa Raham,  

I have been reding your articles from some time. I received one today and I couldn't stop myself writing this first email to you. The way you have pointed out the social evil of " Khusamad " and " Mush factor" is realy remarkable. I am also writing some articles. You may find one of my articles at http://thepost.com.pk/Previuos.aspx?dtlid=128210&src=Muhammad%20Asif%20Riaz&date=12/11/2007 . Basically I am researcher ( working as research associate here and programme assistant for south asia for a programme Religion and Society : A dialogue"). You may also find my other investigative research report on http://icssa.org/article_detail_parse.php?a_id=1269&rel=1258,1256 exposing The Aga Khani threat to Islam in Paksitan.  

Being a writer you can easily note that my emphsis is on young people and i request you to concentrate and write for young people that what they can do for the betterment of there religion and country.  

Salam

Asif

 
 

Robina jee,

Thank you very much for sharing this with us. Very appropriate and timely article. This is what we expect from you, forcing us to look inside us and change  the way we have been conditioned to think all  our lives.  

Very relevant to look at this through the eyes of our children , who have been fortunate to breathe in this free and open society.  

We look at people like you who have the gift and ability to influence our perceptions about the issues you discussed in this article, and pray that you have the energy to get rid of the pollution in our minds that we all suffer from. 

Wishing you all the success .(if you succeed we all win)

  salam madam rubina

very nice to see your article. all Pakistanis over the globe share your sentiments. but situation is, more or less, like those Muslims who could have done nothing when Muhammad bin qasim was called back and was perished. all Muslims felt this pain in their very hearts but
were unable to shape their grief. anyway.

your style really enchants.

nothing more to mention.

  Salamz,
 
I liked the way you liked that old saying with the current political situation Pakistan. I believe nations do come across with situation like this. But what about the 'new dawn' should we lose hope and keeping in mind we inherited traitors like Mir jafar and Mir sadiq, this land has always seen these characters.
Indeed this nation awaits for another Tipu Sultan to rescue. We have to live with it as a nation as we are living with the Black spot of bangla desh on our natioan;s face we can't deny it it was a failure of ideology of Pakistan. I've so much to say sorry if i don;t make any sense.
After my exams i'll write something among these lines and send it to you for review. You are inspiring me to write. But the reason i am replying is, what about 'new dawn' every single day brings a new hope and this world has seen so many dark ages but life still rolled on and new nations built their civilisations the graves of old ones. God forbid i would'nt now be surprised with the prediction of new world map and breaking up Pakistan into 5 units if things continued with the same pace. Allah save Pakistan.
 
WasalAam .

Dear Rubina Jee 

Thanks for sending me this nice article. Pl keep me on ur list. 

From ur article, I have seen a very beautiful heart brimming of national interests. I also feel like this but my way of expression is not as good as urs. I wanna submit few things and hope that u will think about them and if feel appropriate, then make a nice article.

 

For me, the most inspiring person which always strengthens my thinking is "EDHI". He did not had any formal and nice education nor an appealing personality. Rejected by almost 7 women and then all alone he started welfare activities with a broken heart and now a days, it is the only leading NGO in Pakistan. Ye serf jazba tha jis ne aik aam se insaan ko etna azeem bana diya magar tons of money/funds honey ke bawajood, aus ka life style.....sada khapre, sada khana, zameen pe sona...kuch bhi tu nahin badla. aus ka politics main ane ka koi arida nahin tha magar phir bhi aus ke barhti hoye maqboliat ke wajah se ausy mulak chorna para tha....jaan bachaney ke liye.

 

Hakeem Saeed ke misal lee lo. Aus ke saath bhi aisa he hoya.

 

Now comming to the core issue:

 

I don,t wanna blame Imran Khan, Benazir, Nawaz Shareef etc., but I assure u that the whole public of Pakistan will be on roads in few days if they clean their hearts from protecting their future interests of not having a strong judiciary n systems. Followings if announced, the fate of Pakistan will change in days.

 

1. All judges who refused to take oath under PCSs since 1997 will be restored in SC & HCs immediately. A bill will be passed in parliament to increase their age limit to 75 years. After that every year there will e a secret balloting in SC and each HC for the CJ. No new judge will be appointed until cleared by majority in secret balloting in each SC or HC. This will always ensure a strong judiciary in Pakistan but the problem is that one one wants a strong judiciary as that can be a problem for them in future. 

2. In each politically party, a system of secret balloting will be introduced and it will be done each year. All these political leaders do not want this because they never want to leave seats like Pervaiz Musharaf or anyone else in the past. 

Rubina Jee, we do have many beautiful hearts, but our systems have evolved a machine which automatically rejects and throw away a person like u and me. But people (Public figures) who matters are not willing to sacrifice their personal interests for the nation and for Pakistan.  

When I was a student of FA. I used to read historic books in a very nice n precious library established by a UAE King in Pakistan. I read history of almost every nation and never found "GHADAARS" like we do have in Muslim / subcontinent history. Hum bikne keliye tayar baithey hain. bus offer laganey ke deer ha. Rupaya ho tu, aik dhondoo, hazar milte hain. 

Sorry I have said something wrong. 

Have a very nice day

Pervaiz

Asslamualaikum
My name is Sabir Yousuf.I am from karachi Pakistan.
By profession I am a Banker,Manager of a commercial bank branch for last several years.I did MBA and Banking Diploma
I applied for Canadian Immigration. Mean while I want to do some Accounts
and financial courses so that I intend to do CMA I got your e-mail that mashallah you have canadian banking industry experience
I shall be highly obliged if you can guide me to some extent about my future path as you have vast experience in Canadian environment and I applied for Canadian Immigration.
The problem is that all the experience I have in Karachi Pakistan of general commercial banking and as you know that what kind of training and exposure we get in Nationalized banking environment. I  am not certain that what I gonna do in Canada If soon or latter I will get the opportunity to go there with family of wife and three children. As you have spend a lot of time over there so you can advise me better about the situation and suggestion what should I do to prepare myself to adopt in that society as I heard that there is nothing but odd jobs for new immigrants.
Can you suggest me some Accounts/Finance courses which can be done online from Canada or any other suggestion which might be helpful when I get the opportunity to arrive in Toronto Canada after immigration which is of course not certain but there is a possibility.
I have read your articles, certainly you got the skills to write and this also shows that you have a sincere and sensitive approach and heart towards our society and I thought that  you can better advise me regarding all aspects of this issue.
I will be grateful for your favor.

Very glad to see some young Pakistani Writer online. Must say you have the spark.Finding it bit hard to read in that urdu font which has been used but keep up the good work. Being a writer myself, I believe even though we live in materlistic society but we can't stop our hearts to sulk and can't close that 'creative eye'.

  Dear Rubina Faisal

LETTER TO EDITOR

October 21st, 2007

Mohtarma, Wit and Wisdom

Wow, what a eulogy for the BB fully bedecked with a Royal Qaseeda by the learned Dr. Farrukh Saleem in his weekly column – Capital Suggestion – “The News” 21st October. I always thought the Dr. was an academic intellectual. Nay, he is the most worldly wise intellectual that we have. His praise for the rising Pheasant from the ashes of her self imposed exile could not have been more opportune and in line with the age old practice of the sycophants ‘prostrating before the rising sun’. May his efforts not go in waste and may he be suitably rewarded in times to come, ameen.

However, Aib e ma’shooq nazar na mi ayad’ (Beloved’s fault don’t show up – the lover refuses to see the faults). The learned Dr. also refuses to see the blunder made by BB in staging the rally just for the glorification and satisfaction of her own ego which caused the un-necessary death of 150 innocent bread winners of their families and maimed another 550 or so. If she were a true leader, could she not anticipate the catastrophe coming, particularly when she had received threats to her life? No, Sir, she knew it very much and that’s why elaborate arrangements for her own personal security – Imam Zamins, benign shadow of the Holy Qura’n, import of bullet proof cars, manufacture of the bullet proof luxurious truck (which could not have been built in a day), foreign security guards, electronic jammers to render ineffective any remote controlled detonation of exploses, Police mobiles escorting either side of the truck, etc. etc. – were made well in advance and in full anticipation of the bomb attack(s). But what was done for the teeming millions except turning them into a most lucrative target of a mile long procession on the dark roads of Karachi moving at snail’s pace for hours on end for any suicidal attacker to choose the time and the place of the attack leisurely at his own discretion and will?! Even the most nincompoop of the nincompoops would have anticipated the carnage and cancelled the rally, but, she ensuring her own safety in the bullet proof luxurious truck just threw to the winds all caution and concern for the lives of the creeping critters, whom she befools by calling ‘mere awaam’!! The heroic leader covered nine miles in ten long hours but took ten minutes to cover 25 KMs to Bilawal House!

As expected the PPP is shedding crocodile tears on the loss of life, have declared three days mourning, are holding press conferences sympathising with the families of the dead and finger pointing at others, even calling on some to offer fateha, etc. etc. A sort of devilishly clever ‘damage control’ to shift the blame onto others and totally absolve themselves of all liabilities scot-free. May I, therefore, request the CJP to take suo moto notice of the Karachi carnage, which could have been avoided had the BB and PPP walas not taken out such a vnerable procession fraught with very obvious dangers ?

Hi  

It is really nice to read your article, Do u have any idea that how can we eliminate this thinking from the poor peoples of Pakistan (I means specially Jialas) even they know the reality and truth about their leaders. 

Do they have any other option, or you think they accept this dictatorship as blessing of GOD on them. 

Regards

Murtaza uqaili

 

 
 

So you think it is BeNazir's fault that the explosion took place?
 
I think, the criminals (so called Mullahs and islamic extremists) are responsible and should be exterminated.
I would go so far in saying that Pakistan might have to use the big bomb against its own lunatic and religiously mad people in order to save the normal and peace-loving citizens.
I have to say that this Islamic extremism is a global problem and needs to be tackled the way the world confronted with Hitler in the last century. All the western powers with the help of Muslim moderates need to "clean - up and thoroughly wipe out these idiots and foolish people. They have no place in this world.

a ap ka busharaf aur hitler ka mawazna bnohat zabardast aur haqaiq per mabnee hai, i just want to add here that why innocent & betrayed people of Pakistan not coming out of there homes, even they all hate busharraf and company. busharraf and company had created such an environment in Pakistan that innocent and gentle people of Pakistan are struggling day and night just to meet their (including their families)'s needs and they cannot afford to waste a day to go out of their living or working places and protest against today's Hitler and his company, as it might cost them such a loss that they and their children would have to sleep with hunger, disease,fear...
one might ask that how the crueled & betrayed innocent people of Pakistan can get rid of busharraf and company without contributing practically and protesting against busharaf and company, the answer is very simple that after independance from britishers and hindus simultaneously if it is necessary for each generation of Pakistan to have a dictator and to fight against him? thsi is the main reason now a days that people ar enot coming out as our elders have already fought against dictators, zia and ayub and some of our elders are now experiencing 3rd dictator and majority of them experiencing 2nd.
my opinion, when ever hitler(busharaf) and company would try to escape, they shouldn't be allowed a safe way to esacpe rather they all should be hanged and kept hanged many days infront of GHQ and all core command headquarters,, so that every one in the coming generations of army should learn that they are being recruited and paid to serve their nation by protecting the nation from foreign invasion an dthey are not recruited to occupy presidency, prime minister house, civil departments & embassies through out the world!

I have read rubina's article. She is right in her observation. Courtesy the colonial minded culture of Pakistan, we as a nation don't exist. We are simply a bunch of people. Driven like a flock of sheep. She has described getting entangled in traffic jam because of presence of some big shot on roads. Well, that may well be a tyranny of some hours where by people suffer and eventually make their way to home. But there are some grave issues that are of far more importance whereby people perhaps never protested and that are expenditures of offices of highest posts at provincial and federal level. If you happen to get hold of the figures of expenditures made annually by president, prime minister, parliament rains, chief ministers, provincial ministers , Governors, bureaucracy and above all Generals of Pakistan armed forces, you will forget agony of traffic jams. How much money from our taxes just spent of luxuries of these elits alone is so painful to know. People on streets have simply no idea. Not a single political party in Pakistan raises voice against this and neither has made it an issue ever.  

Recent protest of people on chief justice case was also an exception. We cant say as a whole that people are dead politically and morally. Pakistan is second largest country in the world to give charity after U.S.A. It was rhetoric that people in Pakistan are dead like of Burma. But on 8th October the way people helped their brothers in earthquake was also a sign of life. Yes, people don't protest on many things that they should. Its all about awareness. We are not taught our own law of the land at any stage of our educational career contrary to country like U.S.A where a school child is not only taught the US law but his class exercises include amendment in it for the given reasons. One can easily see the difference, only Lawyers know what the Law of land here is. And after 60 year a movement started.  

Pakistan needs transformation not transition of power from Military to Civil. Political parties are only up there for transition not for transformation. Transformation would mean death of cruel, brutal and tyrant claw of establishment on 160 million people of Pakistan. This would mean fair distribution of wealth, lesser spending on defense and more on education and health.I wish if it could happen in our life time.

  wanted to comment on your afsana..."chokat ki dhoop aur sham"
It was very sensitively felt and written. Came as a surprise to me. The stages of a woman's life, the compromises she makes; are is well presented.
What I love the most about your writing was the sensitivity and simple expression. Luckily, I have met you and the depth of your feeling is amazing.
I was very impressed.
I actually wanted to write a review on it but I have never done anything of the sort yet and I wasnt sure if I will be able to do justice to your writing so I never dared. All the delay in commenting is due to that only...
In short, it was amazing.
I am so proud of you. MashaAllah.

Hi,
 
I am Shahbaz from London. I read you article '' Yah Ghazi Yah Tara PurIsrar Bunda--- Yaa Naachti Kath Putlian''. I liked the way you expressed your feeling, Although it was a bit carried away into emotions but we are all emotional specially after what happened in Islamabad a few days ago.
 
What should be done????? In my opinion its all our own fault. We talk alot but do nothing. No body cared about what was happening there. No political dialouges took place, none of the political parties were at the scene except Pakistan Musliam league (Q) which is ofcourse a party of hired Donkeys who know nothing about present world and MMA who still lives in The Stone Ages. Two uncapable parties to negotiate with some one who is willing to die. I am not willing to die so does almost every body as normal people love to live a life......
 
People were hiding in their big laxurious houses in islamabad, no body said a single word for or against it. Only MMA and PML (Q) was on the media. Which media???? As media was not allowed to even smell what was going on. All we heard was from ISPR or some phone calls made by Ghazi to the media. I want to cut long story short. All is because we are a nation of very hardworking but silent people who dont know whats a peaceful life. As long as we will not express freely we can never see a change or Peace. We will see more of it again. Speak truth to yourself. Truth to every body. Keep it real.
 
Warm Regards,
 
Shahbaz Ellahi
 
 
The  essay was cool!
your observation and the ability to associate your emotions with what your observe. make your writings beautiful.
I think that PTI should make an effort to bring writers like you in the lime-light. Nothing works better than effective writings not only do they help in  clarifying  our views to the general public but every now and then these writings help existing  members to motivate themselves.
 
I would also suggest you to peruse personal projects to bring your writings available to the masses. It would be a great contribution.

Respectable Rubina Jee

Nice to read your new articles, “Jo Imran Khan ko kuch ho gia!!!” and “Ek siane se interview”.

“Interview” is interesting. You’ve drawn the attention of your readers on sensitive matters in a light and funny way.

May I say that we, the masses of Pakistan are frightened from our “Leaders” rather “So called Leaders”. We are in search of true andsincere leadership since we lost one we had, in 1948.

In our desire, we followed blindly everyone who claimed to be sincere with us. But unfortunately, we were deceived by all, one by one. We were deceived by both Religious as well as Political Leadership. Therefore, we are so much afraid of being deceived that we suspect every one now.

Even after being deceived again and again, we are not disappointed. After losing all we had, we, the Poor Pakistanis, look towards every new voice claiming to be ours. A ray of hope arise again till we are cheated.

Recent example is of Chief Justice of Pakistan.

We have nothing to do with his personal character. We’ve forgotten he took oath under PCO. We have forgotten how and when he strengthened the dictatorship. But we remember his little good deeds for us.

We remember his stance on “Basant”, “Misplaced People”, “Pakistan Steel Mill” etc. We are following him because he did what we could not do. He said “NO” to a dictator. A dictator who was not used to hear “NO” due to uniforms of his own and his fellow Generals having sticks in their hands.

Just like we enjoy in our films when Police Men are beaten or killed, we don’t appreciate the hero due to his bravery but because he does what we wish to do but we can’t.

But we are once again afraid of being deceived. We are afraid some day we hear the news of any patch up.

We recall when we blindly followed our “Leader” Imran Khan. We handed over to him whatever we had. We ran with him bare footed, to support him.

One day we heard he welcomed a Dictator. Then we heard he is supporting an illegal and unethical Referendum. Then we heard he is about to take oath as Prime Minister under the umbrella of a dictator. Then we heard he refused. He refused not for us, the people of Pakistan. He refused because he did not like Chaudhry Brothers and did not like to work with them. He refused because his proposed cabinet was not according to his choice.

We recall when he announced inauguration of his political party; we were pleased and wished his party be strengthened as early as possible. But what he did? In stead of becoming a political party of national level, he opted to be only a pressure group. In stead of making himself capable of nominating his own candidates throughout the country, he satisfied himself only on seat by seat adjustments with other parties.

We are afraid, his present position, the acts of grooming him as a “Leader” are not the result of any deal with the dictator.
We are afraid, “Phir hamain rahbaron ne ghera hai ?”.


Anyhow, let’s hope for the best with our eyes not on these “Leaders” but to our LORD with a request and pray to have pity on us. We’ve nothing to lose now.

Regards,

Naveed Ahmad
 

Dear Rubina,
 I do have very pleasant feeling after reading ur column about Imran Khan because we are also exactly of the same view that he is the only Man who do have Sincerity, courage, will power and wisdom as well to bring a radical change to our corrupted system and I am glade that such a visionary people like you respond to his voice.

Very nice column. The writer has a thorough understanding of the political situation in the country and is well aware that Imran is the only leader capable of solving the problems faced by the country. The leaders are gifts to a nation and if they are not respected or maltreated God does not send them for a number of years like we, Muslims did not get any leader after Jinah.

I am regular reader of Sunday times. its best newspaper for reading point of view. I appreciate Rubina Faisal's column. No doubt we all are behind Imran. He never lies to his people and he is the most popular personality in Pakistan.

yeh article bohat acha aur buhat sacha hai.Aaj se 4 saal pehle main bhiImran Khan ka fan nahin tha magar phir is ki sachi baatoon se impress ho kar main is ka fan ban gaya aur main Imran Khan ko apna leader samajhta hoon.Jab main imran Khan ka haami bana tha to is k hami buhat kum thay magar ab MQM ke saath is Jang k saath hi PTI ke fans main buhat izafa hoa hai.Ab Imran Khan ke saath pakistanion ki buhat bari tadad hai.
Ab Imran Khan Bhi keh sakta hai.
Main akaila hi chala tha janib-e-manzil magar
log milte rahay , karwan chalta raha.

Excellent article!
May Allah open eyes of all MQM supporters?
And may Allah keep Imran Khan safe and secure

I totally agree with the article. Now educated people of Pakistan are looking at Imran as a last hope. May God bless him.

Article is more than enough to give a spark to a dead soul I really appreciate the way of writing. This nation is really needed of this sort of article in order to save this country by corrupt politician. I believe you have done your job honestly, now it's our turn to wakeup and make M.A. Jinnah dream in reality. I had been the supporter of MQM, but after watching wall chalking in Karachi about Mr. Imran Khan, I realized how wrong we had been thanks to Allah and media who opened our eyes and those not yet, may Allah open their eyes soon.
 
 
  salam......I read your article "agar imran ko kuch ho gaya to" n I must say...I am so happy that their is atl east one columnist who has agreed to change his/her mind about this great man.........although i'm 1 of those thousands of people who have admired n loved dis man for all my life..........i could never understand y many ppl didnt like him. (which by da way,i still dont)...but now i understand dat not every1 thinks da same way........their might be faults in dis guy dat i cud never detect which most people could easily see.........but i still think,dat they ignored da very visible applaudible part of him.........

reading ur article gave me a great boost about ik's future in politics..........bcoz it told me dat ppl r finely seeing da better n broader side of him.....even if they rnt bold n brave enough to agree to it as u have done..............

furthermore!...i wud like to congratulate u on becoming another strong voice in search for justice..........may ALLAH provide it to us under Imran Khanz great leadership......Amen......

Respectable Rubina Jee

I am an Audit Officer in a bank by profession but having a close relation
with literature since my educational life.  I still remember the days, in
80s / 90s, we University fellows used to gather in Pak Tea House and the
sittings there.  Hearing from one and commenting on the same and vise versa.

Although, my job assignment (traveling) now a days does not allow me to spare time for such type of sittings but I keep on seeking information about good writings. I came to know about your columns too through a friend.  As per my routine, I use to get prints of writings and review the same while staying in hotel.

Since I first visited your site, I’ve gone through various columns. 
Commenting on “America ka ashirbad apne bangali fauji bhaion ke lea bhe”, “Pakistani khawateen aur Canadian 911”, “Pilple Rawaey”,  while appreciating your vision and its presentation, may I draw your kind attention towards the way our “Pakistani Khawateen” are treated here by the male members of the society, including their fathers, brothers and husbands etc.  Aren’t they kept and attempted to be dealt as the inferiors.  As you are the part of the same community, you may admit that there are only rare cases when Ladies with some achievements were supported by the male members of the family. 
Mostly, they succeed in doing something extra ordinary at their own, facing and competing entire opposition.  As a reaction, finding some opportunity (refer 911) they avail it to reduce their frustration or to use it as a tool for revenge from the male dominating society.  But it will not be in the cases where our “khawateen” are given due respect and equal chances to grow besides the male members of the family.

Coming to the role of Genearls, viz. taking over as and when they wish, will you please condemn the role of our political parties, welcoming them, celebrating the event by offering sweets and finally seeking their share from the Dictators.  Now come to the role of Bureaucracy and Judiciary who are always ready to obey every occupier.  From going for “Salam” to “General Saab” ensuring their loyalty to taking oath under the umbrella of LFO, their role is obvious since the origin of Pakistan.

Isn’t it, God forbid if some day any Indian General takes over, comes on
Television Screen and says, “Mere aziz hamwatno……….” Will not the tool of Nazria-e-Zaroorat” be used again?

While endorsing your presentation of the “Issue of the time”, the suspension of the Chief Justice, I would like to add the role of our political parties on the eve.  Even this national issue could not convince them to unite.  On the hearing dates, all the parties used to protest individually.  All of those tried to hijack the movement of the lawyers.  Failing which, those are side lining, gradually.  If we go just seven / eight years back, most of these parties are who did their best to get their share from the Army. 
Those who were accommodated are in General’s Camp and others………..

Your deep concern reflecting in, “Basant ka sab saman tayyar hai” and “Arifa Manzoor aur Rashid Nadeem ka dukh” are evident of your sincerity towards  our nation and your friends.  I am confident that not only me but all your readers agree with your thoughts.  While appreciating the same, I would ask you to keep it up.

Regards,

Naveed Ahmad

 
 
  Mohtaram behen Rubina,
I just finished reading your Urdu article on Venezuela, Bolivarian Revolution and Hugo Chavez. I am deeply impressed by your analysis, your political/social wisdom and your "everyday" style of writing.

Keep writing on such issues and spread the great message coming out of Latin America. It is indeed a lesson to learn for countries like Pakistan, that is slowly and gradually committing political suicide.

You might be fascinated with what "democratic socialism" can do with people....it can change the destiny of all people, but in a democratic way. If you win the hearts and minds of the people, that would be the real achievement, like Chavez did.

For this writing I can say, Shabaash to you. I will read more of your articles later and present my feedback

Hello Rubina,
 
AoA. A friend passed on the link to your website today. I am very impressed and very grateful to you for sharing your thoughts with us. Thoughts which have been expressed in the most eloquent way which reflect the feelings of all of us who love Pakistan and our traditional values. Alas the dream which Allama Iqbal saw and which Qaid-e-Azam turned into realty with untiring efforts has been turned into a nightmare by our army generals with the help of corrupt politicians. Sometimes one wonders if this country was created for the sole purpose of providing a heaven for the army and its generals?
 
The irony of our country is that its total resources are at the disposal of an army who has failed to deliver anything except defeat, humiliation and surrender. They only succeed in conquering their own people again and again and again, while surrendering to an outside threat -- be it the wars of 1965 & 1971, Siachin, Kargil, post-911 and now Kashmir. They have deliberately destroyed all civil institutions in the country be it the bureaucracy, parliament, etc. The judiciary, which until now was tamed and hence acceptable, is under attack because one person decided that enough is enough and started to dispense justice for a change. They have not even left national institutions like PIA or cricket alone. To what depth they will drive this nation?
 
Anyway, sorry for this ditribe. My purpose was only to express my appreciation for your hard work and sincere thanks.
Best regards.

Mohtrima Rubina:
Your website link is sent by the courtesy of Dr. Sohail. I have gone through your discovery of the 'family of the heart ' and the sentiments you expressed about this literary group.
There is warmth of feeling, a kind of restlessness to grasp the essence of life, and a fresh idiom in your expression. Keep it up.
If you want to contribute to an e-magazine called 'Sanvaad', you are welcome. To begin with we can accept contribution only in English, though it could an authentic translation from any language.
Please accept our invitation. 'Sanvaad' will be launched by the end of this month.
Earnest good wishes.

  I read Love Marriage in your website.
Sorry, I don't agree, I don't think that this "boy-catches-a-girl-passes-times-find-someone-better-or-get-married-with-thew-first" type of sories are literature, because literature in my thinking, is never destructive.
I may be wrong in my opinion about literature, I am only a student, but still, the romance being presented now a days is no romance, its just........., any ways.
I am very sorry if I hurt anyone.

bohat khob Rubina jee, waisay SJK aur JK bhai k jamay tabsroon k baad main nacheez kiya kah sakta hoon . . . magr kuch aisa hai jo zara mokhtalif likhna chahoon ga . . .

aik maaN k ahsaas o jazbaat ki sahi tarjamani hai yeh , aur iss k elawa aik aurat ki bhi kahani hai jissay waqt ne takht aur farsh dono se milwaya , aulaad ki mohabbat aur bay rukhi dono ki misall dee . . . waqt bohat ajee ustaad hai, jiss aaNgan main aik mamta phool khilati hai aur phir wohi phool kanTay ban jaeen too apnay aaNgan main ajnabi honay ka ahsas baRh jata hai . . .jissay Rubina ne aik bohat acha lafzi perahan diya hai . . .. aur bilashuba app daad ki mostahiq hain . . khod app ka zoor-e-qalam aur ziada karay (ameen) aik cheez jo mujhe kahni hai (kyon k main SJK aur JK bhai se "kafi" chota hoon iss liya) k shaid kuch farq uss tarbeeyat ka bhi hai jo moashra iss naee nasl ki kar raha hai , aur uss ki wajah woh "garanee" bhi hai jiss ne bachon ko dunya ki oonch neech sirf "madiyat" k hawalay se sikhaee , kiya ham loog apnay bachoon ko "Genious" bana rahay hain ya "Jin" , kiya "Harry Potor" aur "Finding Nemo" k doar main app "Sindbad" aur "Alif Laila" se motasir ho saktay hain? ya kar saktay hain ? kiya Information Technology aur "samaee" aur "basri" aur "khodkaar" khelon main app "Gulli Danda" aur "Golyaan" khela saktay hoo . .. ? agar nahi too shaid ajj ki "Granee" ko "Teletabees" dekhna paray ga , ussay "Sesam Street" ko janna ho ga, ussay PIXER animation aur Dizny Land ki kahanyan sonani hon gi , "Stivart Little" se le kar "Bug Life" tak sab janna ho ga . . . . aur main samjhta hon k in kahnayon ka dars shaid ziada "wast" hai jo porani kahanyon se hai ... .

Mohabat kee nahi jati, hoti hai , ya ho jati hai , yeh baat har tarah ki mohabbat k liya hai . . . jab ajj ki maaN apni aulaad ko apni Chaati ka doodh iss liya nahi palaati k ussay apnay aap ko "Maintain" rakhna hota hai too phir bachay ko bhi "Dabbay" se ziada mohabbat hoo gi "Abbay" ki banisbat . . . zara iss par bhi hamee ghoor karna chahya

Wese bhi afsana paRhne k baad kafi der tak maiN kuch bolne k qabil nahiN rahi thi. Aik behad touching tehreer thi jis ne shru se akhir tak apne seher meiN jakRe rakha.

Salamz!!!

Rubina Ji ki yeh tehreer bila shubah aik saher angaiz tehreer thi. Is tehreer ne "daqya noosi" waldain ke jazbaat o ahsasaat ki bohot khoob akkasi ki. "Naye dour" ke bachoN ka rawwaia bhi baRe bherpoor andaaz mein numayaN kia gaya.

Lekin yeh bhi haqeeqat hay keh yeh "daqya noosi" waldain or "naye dour" ke bach'che her ahad mein paaye jaate hain, or paaye jaate rahain ge. "Naye dour" ke bachoN se "daqya noosi" maaN baap / dada dadi ban'ne ke dour mein taqreeban 50 baras ka waqfa hota hay. Or is 50 baras mein zamana bohot si qayamat ki chaalain chal jaata hay.

Yehi wajah hay keh her dour ke buzurgoN ko bachoN / no jawanoN se or nojawanon ko buzurgoN se shikwe shikayatain rahti hain.

Buzurg (nojawanoN ke bhale) ke lie, apne tajurbaat ki roshni mein raahnumai kerna chahte hain, jabkeh "nojawanoN" ko khud kuchh kerne or apni merzi chalaane ki aazaadi chahie hoti hay.

 
 
 

TAHIRA

 
 
 

Nateejatan aik fareeq kaamyab ho jaata hay tou doosra "ghuTan" ka shikaar or "deewar per makhi ki tarah" chipak jaata hay.

Is afsaane mein is tasweer ka aik pahlu dikhaya gaya hay, umeed hay keh Rubina Ji isi tasweer ka doosra pahlu bhi, apne kisi afsaane / tehreer mein numayan karain gi smile.gif
