NO Saazish, NO Jang – Peace NOT Pieces – The Idea:
The history of the sub-continent is marred by conspiracies that have SUFFOCATED us beyond repair. Whether it was the British colonial rulers who succeeded in ‘dividing and ruling’ us (symbolized by the ‘GORA’), their neo-colonial off springs, the imperialist American ‘establishment’, still hell bent upon consolidating their hegemony in the region (symbolized by the ‘GORA’) or the lunatic fundamentalist fascist religious extremist/terrorists (MULLAH n PUJAARI — the ‘Merchants of Hate’), who view the world from their simplistically dangerous ‘communalist’ lens or our own Corrupt Establishment/Political Elite & Despotic Military Dictators, it is eventually the ‘people’ of Pakistan, India and SouthAsia that have suffered immensely.
The commoner bechara DESI — the old uncle standing at the bus stop, the lower middle class clerk, the honest bank cashier, the farmer of our villages, the students of our colleges and workers of our factories — have gained nothing in the last 64 years beyond suffocation and trappings instituted by our own Elite in collusion with foreign powers. In addition to the age old Roti, Kaprra (BIJLI) aur Makaan (Bread, Clothes, Shelter), the overarching necessity now is security n Peace.
For long-lasting ‘Peace’, we need to look beyond our religious, ethnic and nationalistic divisions and wake up from our slumber to recognize the ‘common enemy’ who is too close to our homes now. It is time to get back that ‘Desi Pride’ that we, the ‘people,’ have lost amidst globalization, complacency, jingoism and religiosity. It is time for our youth to’re-imagine’ the world — a new free world, a new (sovereign) Pakistan n South Asia.
So let’s tell the world in unison with the voices n wisdom of our Democratic Icons – the representatives of ‘THE PEOPLE’ – Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Mahatma Gandhi, Benazir Bhutto and Imran Khan that “We want Peace Not Pieces.” Peace Zindabad, Pakistan Zindabad!
