Defence of the Motherland is a sacred duty and duty is one of the noblest words inany language. In order to defeat a country with a strong and disciplined army it is perhapsa matter of strategy to bring that army into disrepute. To create a cleavage between the populace and its army, to break the army’s morale and to shake their belief that they areon the right is an alternate method of waging war. In the sixty years of Pakistan’s historyour enemies have time and again attempted to reverse the Partition of British India.Occupying a Geo-strategic position and consisting of diverse cultures, languagesand races, Pakistan’s unifying strength lies in adherence to one religion in majority. Inorder to bring this bonding factor to naught another method of waging war would be tocreate divisions and hatred between sects and sub nationalities. The events that areunfolding today are a clear indication that the above alternate methods of warfare are being waged relentlessly. The questions remain are we, as a Nation, capable of seeingthrough this malignant cloud of deception? Is our Army, in general and our HighCommand in particular, capable of taking on this challenge to our existence? Are we, as a Nation, capable of foreseeing the tragedy, destruction and deprivation that currentsevents, if crowned with success, would yield?General Ashfaque Parvez Kiani has amply proved to be the man of the momentand has successfully met the challenge head on. His calm and quiet approach hasrendered the enemies of Pakistan mute and aghast at the swift reversal that he hasenacted. Supremely confident and in full possession of cool nerves the General alongwith his team and all ranks of the Pakistan Military have shown their true mettle in fiercedirect action as well as Public Relations. The future is bound to hold more of the same if not better performance.“Wa Ta’seemu Bay HabbLillah hay Jameea, Wa La Taffaruku! Hold on Firmly tothe Rope of Allah and avoid differentiation! Allah, The Most Glorious, has clearlyinstructed the faithful to remain united against all odds and eschew all manner of differentiation and divisive tendencies. Despite this clear injunction, forces are at work, bent upon mayhem and bloodshed. The targeting of innocent civilians; use of women andchildren as human shields; sneak attacks in the cover of darkness are all reprehensibleand need to be shown for complete poverty of intellect and devoid of humanity. Islam brought chivalry and humane conduct of warfare to a barbarous and savage humanity.Strict exclusion from targeting of women; children; the old and infirm and even fruittrees, taken to mean legitimate income generating means, was enforced on clear directionof The Almighty. This can be taken as a litmus test for judging the actions and legitimacy
of those extremists and terrorists who are engaged in attempting to gain victory for themselves in the name of Islam. To use forbidden means in order to achieve what isclaimed to be supremacy of Islam is a clear contradiction and unacceptable under anycircumstances.With the upcoming elections as a clear and peaceful manner of expressing opinionand bringing about desired changes in society clearly in sight, insistence of using violentmeans to coerce society into following a particular mode of thought is evidence of enemyaction.The Pakistan Army has time and again come to the forefront and bravely stood upagainst all odds to ensure the safety and security of the Motherland. From battlefieldaction; construction of strategic roads and bridges; strategic Afforestation; flood andearthquake relief; maintenance of peace; enforcement of law; succour to the afflicted and provision of security to women and children and defence of our honour to long hours of vigilance and preparedness in order to react promptly to any eventuality, the PakistanArmy has never faltered or failed to present a bold front. Though every action needs to beseen in the light of its background it is never the less imperative to examine activities inthe perspective of impacts, be they immediate or long term. In case ideologically opposedcamps are engaged in a short term activities where interests converge, this cannot betaken to mean that one camp is acting in the sole interests of the other. The example of Pakistan’s and US interests to oppose Russian aggression in Afghanistan in the recent past is an example. No stretch of imagination can produce the answer that Pakistan wasworking in the interests of the US. Similarly War Against Terror is a war of the entirecivilized world and it is perfectly legitimate to seek assistance from any direction in order to further the positive conclusion of this effort.The use of Madrissah students or ‘Taaliban’ to get results desired by particular interests is quite questionable in ethical terms. “In Islam the goal of education is, “Todevelop human personality on the path of creativity for service to humanity and nature.”Secondly, the concept of “Ar-Rabb” is the taker from state to state by Cherishing andGuidance. This is amply proved by the evolution of life and points towards more of thesame. Whereas most of physical evolution seems to have taken place, there yet remains plenty in the mental and spiritual fields. Instead of indoctrination; programming andconditioning through rote memorizing or exposure to biased literature, the need is for adynamic and inspired system of education that fulfils our spiritual, mental and physicalrequirements. This education needs to incorporate understanding or at least agreeing to
