We hope you know that Pakistan is celebrating its Independence Day today. Even though Pakistan was carved out of India on August 15, they celebrate their I-Day a day before India’s. The reason is not clear but it should be noted that they initially celebrated it on August 15.

Anyway, cut to 2017. While India made tremendous progress in every sphere and is now one of the world’s most powerful economies, Pakistan continued towards a downward spiral led by fundamentalists and military dictators.

Most of the initial years went into internal squabbles and tug-of-war for power. Within that period, there emerged a powerful Mullah brigade which started dictating the daily lives of the people of Pakistan along the lines of religion.

And while the minorities in India enjoy all the rights and guarantees under the Constitution, the minorities in Pakistan face discrimination regularly and sometimes even death due to some flimsy reason such as blasphemy.

That the minority population in India has only gone up and that of Pakistan has gone down exposes the difference between the laws of the two nations, their respective governments and the attitude towards minorities by the majority population.

One classic example of why the minority in Pakistan lives under a cloud of death can be judged from a speech delivered by the Chief Justice of Pakistan a few days ago.

While talking about Pakistan’s creation, Chief Justice Saqib Nisar said that the Two Nations Theory was the basis of Pakistan’s creation. But while explaining the theory, Justice Nisar said:

“Sir Syed Ahmad Khan was probably the first thinker who conceived the Two Nations Theory, that there were two nations: one was Muslim’s and the other —, I don’t even want to utter the word.”

You can hear that exact part at 7:04 of this video.

 

Who are they? Hindus, of course! With his words, the Pakistani Chief Justice admits that the other nation, India, is a Hindu-majority nation and therefore he hates them. This means that the Pakistani CJ hates ALL Hindus.

It would have been understandable if this was a Pakistani politician addressing a fundamentalist gathering. But this was Pakistan’s Chief Justice speaking! Imagine if the country’s top legal official has this kind of mindset; what then would be the mindset of the rest of the judiciary?

If you are a lover of peace with THIS Pakistan, you may expect that the Pakistani media would be on fire regarding this outrageous statement on Hindus. At the time of writing, there was just ONE article condemning the Chief Justice’s remarks, which speaks a lot about Pakistan’s media as well.

But thankfully, there are a handful of good men and women in Pakistan who chose to respond to their CJ’s insensitive remark at least on Twitter.

But before the secular-liberal champions in India start applauding them, note that their Pakistani counterparts are so few that hardly anyone in Pakistan bothers about what the say. More importantly, Indians who keep harping the “let’s have peace with Pakistan” rant should first know WHO they want peace with.

They will not accept the fact that Pakistan is not a dream world where everything is right. The powers that be in Pakistan have just one agenda – the destruction of India because it is majority Hindu. And it is the powers that be which even the majority of Pakistan’s population respects.

An Indian can shout ‘Bharat Tere Tukde Honge’ in India and still enjoy a celebrity status. No Pakistani can shout ‘Pakistan Tere Tukde Honge’ in Pakistan and enjoy the same.

That’s a fact because Pakistani establishment silences even those voices which are moderately critical of the military.

You can be an Indian music group and sing the Pakistani National Anthem, even if it has a religious touch, but has any Pakistani music group performed the Indian National Anthem? And do Pakistani nationals ever say they won’t sing the Pakistani national anthem like some in India are doing?
