Muhammad Ali, the Quaid-e-Azam

By Afshain Afzal

The 25th of December bears great significance and is the day of rejoice. It is a day of blessings as it is birthday of our Holy Prophet Hazrat Essa Roohallah (Alhe-e-Salam) also known as Jesus Christ in the Christian world.  The birthday of Mr. Muhammad Ali, the Quaid-e-Azam and the founder of Pakistan, also falls on the same day. On this auspicious day where one likes to share feeling of love and good wishes with Muslims and Christian on the occasion of Christmas and Quaid’s birthday, there is a feeling of grief and sorrow over the separation of our Eastern wing which occurred in the same month. It is our prayers that may Almighty Allah keep the people of our separated part, Bangladesh protected, happy and prosperous.

The day also reminds our commitment to complete the mission of our Quaid-e-Azam to strengthen Islamic Republic of Pakistan as bulwark of Islam. The golden words of Quaid-e-Azam during Sibi Darbar on 14 February 1948 are also before us when he said, It is my belief that our salvation lies in following the golden rules of conduct set for us by our great law giver, Prophet of Islam (Sal Allah Ho Alhe Wasalam). Let us lay the foundation of our democracy on the basis of truly Islamic ideals and principles. Our Almighty Allah has taught us that our decisions in the affairs of the State shall be guided by discussions and consultations.”

It is an open secret that there are some enemies of Pakistan within our files who are bent upon destroying our country. These people when go to India assure Indian their loyalty and resolve to secularize Pakistan, however, on their return claim to be loyal Pakistanis, dubbing others as enemy agents, extremists and terrorists. If we recall, Quaid-e-Azam in an interview to Reuter’s Correspondent on 25 October 1947 said. As for the two nation theory, it is not a theory but a fact. The division of India is based on that fact and what is more, that fact has been proved beyond doubt by the ugly and deplorable events of the past two months, and by the action of dominion of India in pulling out Hindus from Pakistan. How then it can be said that there is one nation?”

Ironically, Muslims of Pakistan, who are carrying forward the mission of Quaid-e-Azam to strengthen Pakistan as bulwark of Islam, are being dubbed as extremists, terrorists and Taliban. If we recall, over half a decade back, US State Department spokesman, Robert Wood said, Taliban had taken advantage of very difficult situations in both Afghanistan and Pakistan and what we have to do is try to strengthen civil society in these countries, extend governance outward in these countries so that it can be shown that the Taliban just don’t have the support that they claim to have and that they do have in many cases.”

To achieve this objective, beside carrying out state sponsored terrorist attacks inside Pakistan by India and Western adversaries, Cyber Command has been established, which is carrying out espionage and monitoring of computer and telecommunication networks in Pakistan through foreign sponsored private sector systems, especially key infrastructure such as telecommunications and the electricity grid. The Cyber Command has developed the capability to jam and block all hostile communication, including internet sites. The command is also monitoring media and has launched Psychological Operations through fifth columnists and agents. The new move would prevent Pakistan from accomplishing the mission of Quaid-e-Azam by neutralizing ideology of Pakistan.

No one should underestimate Pakistan, as we are a great nation. When our brave armed forces would personnel would be offering guard of honour at Mizar-e-Quaid in Karachi, we must not forget his address to Army personnel at Malir on 21 February 1948, when he said, You have fought many a battle on the far-flung battle-fields of the globe to rid the world of the Fascist menace and make it safe for democracy. Now you have to stand guard over the development and maintenance of Islamic democracy, Islamic social justice and the equality of manhood in your own native soil.”

We need to comprehend that the Pakistan of Muhamad Ali Jinnah was different from the ideas other leaders including Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, Chaudhry Rehmat Ali, Sir Zafrullah Khan, Agha Khan and  and those associated with Aligarh movement. The fact can be judged from Sir Zafrullah Khan letter to Quaid-e-Azam dated 7 July 1947 about the official name of Pakistan Dominion.  Sir Zafrullah claimed that Pakistan would have be most suitable vis-à-vis Hindustan but may be confusing for a foreigner vis-à-vis India. Also it connoted an ideal rather than a territory. Why not adopt for it the official designation of the Muslim India”.

The Indian nationals and Western touts in our files from day one are not allowing this country to become a reality because they want a confederation of Muslims states under lose federation within the Indian union. New Delhi has also accelerated their activities to compel Hindus and other minorities to migrate to other countries. There is no doubt that we have a clear direction, vision and mission before us and now it is time that all the Pakistanis including the minorities have to strive together to foil any attempt against our struggle to make Pakistan a reality.

    As the writer says, most of the Christians in the world are celebrating Christmas, on December 25.

    The Orthodox Christians in Russia are celebrating Christmas on January 7th. There is a 40-day Lent preceding Christmas Day, when practicing Christians do not eat any meat. The Lent period ends with the first star in the night sky on January 6 – a symbol of Jesus Christ’s birth. Many Orthodox Christians go to the church to attend a Christmas liturgy that evening.

    The Coptic Church will also celebrate Christmas on January 7th. One of the Coptic website states:
    The earliest known indication to such a celebration comes in a passing statement by St. Clement of Alexandria who mentions that the Egyptians of his time celebrated the Lord’s birth on May 20. At the end of the 3rd century, the Western Churches celebrated it in the winter, and this was only accepted in Rome in the middle of the 4th century.

    No one knows the real birthday of Jesus! No date is given in the Bible, so why is it celebrated on the 25th December? The early Christians certainly had many arguments as to when it should be celebrated! Also, the birth of Jesus probably didn’t happen in the year 1 AD but slightly earlier, somewhere between 2 BC and 7 BC (there isn’t a 0 AD – the years go from 1 BC to 1 AD!).

    Jesus’ birth is mentioned in two of the four canonical gospels. By the early-to-mid 4th century, the Western Christian Church had placed Christmas on December 25, a date later adopted in the East, although some churches celebrate on the December 25 of the older Julian calendar which corresponds to January in the modern-day Georgian calendar.The date of Christmas may have initially been chosen to correspond with the day exactly nine months after early Christians believed Jesus to have been conceived or with one or more ancient polytheistic festivals that occurred near Southern Solstice (i.e., the Roman Writer Solstice); a further Solar connection has been suggested because of a biblical verse[a] identifying Jesus as the “Sun of righteousness.”

    The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336 AD, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine (he was the first Christian Roman Emperor). A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on the 25th December.

    According to Encyclopedia Britannica:
    The early Christian community distinguished between the identification of the date of Jesus’ birth and the liturgical celebration of that event. The actual observance of the day of Jesus’ birth was long in coming. In particular, during the first two centuries of Christianity there was strong opposition to recognizing birthdays of martyrs or, for that matter, of Jesus. Numerous Church Fathers offered sarcastic comments about the pagan custom of celebrating birthdays when, in fact, saints and martyrs should be honoured on the days of their martyrdom—their true “birthdays,” from the church’s perspective.

    The precise origin of assigning December 25 as the birth date of Jesus is unclear. The New Testament provides no clues in this regard. December 25 was first identified as the date of Jesus’ birth by Sextus Julius Africanus in 221 and later became the universally accepted date. One widespread explanation of the origin of this date is that December 25 was the Christianizing of the dies solis invicti nati (“day of the birth of the unconquered sun”), a popular holiday in the Roman Empire that celebrated the winter solstice as a symbol of the resurgence of the sun, the casting away of winter and the heralding of the rebirth of spring and summer. Indeed, after December 25 had become widely accepted as the date of Jesus’ birth, Christian writers frequently made the connection between the rebirth of the sun and the birth of the Son. One of the difficulties with this view is that it suggests a nonchalant willingness on the part of the Christian church to appropriate a pagan festival when the early church was so intent on distinguishing itself categorically from pagan beliefs and practices.

    The Holy Quran, however, describes the season, when Jesus, (may peace be on him) was born. In a chapter named after Jesus’ mother, the Holy Quran describes angel visiting mother Mary, when she gave birth to Jesus and reassured her and guided her in these words:
    Then he (angel) called her (Mary) from beneath her, saying, ‘Grieve not. Thy Lord has placed a rivulet below thee; and shake towards thyself the trunk of the palm-tree; it will cause fresh ripe dates to fall upon thee. So eat and drink, and cool thy eye.’ (Al Quran 19:25-27)
    So, according to the literal word of God, the Holy Quran, Jesus was born, when dates are ripe in the Middle East, which is not December or January.

    The disciples of Jesus had prayed for Allah’s blessings, not only for their own generation, but for generations to come for centuries. Their prayers were granted and it is recorded in the Holy Quran:

    When the disciples said, ‘O Jesus, son of Mary, is thy Lord able to send down to us a table spread with food from heaven?’ he said, ‘Fear Allah, if you are believers.’
    They said, ‘We desire that we may eat of it, and that our hearts be at rest and that we may know that thou hast spoken truth to us, and that we may be witnesses thereto.’
    Said Jesus, son of Mary, ‘O Allah, our Lord, send down to us a table from heaven spread with food that it may be to us a festival, to the first of us and to the last of us, and a Sign from Thee; and provide sustenance for us, for Thou art the Best of sustainers.’
    Allah said, ‘Surely, I will send it down to you, but whosoever of you disbelieves afterwards — I will surely punish them with a punishment.’ (Al Quran 5:113-116)

    I hope this writer is joking when he wrote “it is birthday of our Holy Prophet Hazrat Essa Roohallah (Alhe-e-Salam) also known as Jesus Christ in the Christian world” to call one of the most kind human who wanted to help the world unlike Muhamad, he didn’t harm anyone. It is a crime to compare him and worse to call him by a Muslim name. I am sure it will be not long before Muslims will have a name of Allah to Lord Buddha also. If Allah is so powerful I can’t understand why Allah is allowing let alone others but innocent Muslims to be killed by Muslims in Pakistan last week and other countries? Is Allah powerless in front of these guys or Allah is making them do these crimes. In my view any powerful kind person let alone a God would protect the innocent especially children and punish the criminals. But in Islam it works other way around. Criminals are always protected and look at Sri Lanka and Furukkhan of Gampola who imports Drugs is well protected by the authorities and Allah. So why not become a criminal? Look around the world how many Muslims have killed innocent children, old people, men and women in the last 24 months and mainly Muslims. In the history of the world it has never happened by one religious group in the name of a religion. Why a Muslim invader burned alive over 10,000 Buddhist monks in India. With all that history behind Islam this guy is talking about the greatness of Islam. If that happened in my religion I will never try to defend but be ashamed and accept the wrong doings. Sri Lankans especially Sinhalese have to learn from these and watchful all the time.
