“Freemasons Wanted me to Join Them, Offered Visit to PERU " Gen Shahid Aziz disclosed this in last week Capital

Talk . Made me write again something with regards to Freemasons and Pakistan.

Frankly, before I read "Gods of Eden" by Willam Bramley I wasn't aware of who Freemasons were and what they were interested in. Bramley refers to the creators of Mankind as "Custodial gods". That term can be safely interpreted as the biblical Elohim/modern day Elite Freemasons because of their occultic signature they encoded within human DNA. The Biblical Garden of Eden is not a mythological place but a real location. It was located in what we call modern day Iraq. Bramley's book introduces you to The Brotherhood. Some people mistakenly think the term "Big Brother" refers only to the U.S. government when in fact it refers to something much bigger. Today the Brotherhood is a world-wide network of secret societies which do evil to Mankind. A group of evil individuals both male and female who hide behind the good works dimension of Freemasonry. They plot and scheme for their

own amusement and benefit.

The Brotherhood was formed to teach Man spiritual truth (the forbidden knowledge). Prince Ea was the individual who founded the organization. As biblical, ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian texts say, Ea and his Brotherhood were quickly defeated by members of God. They taught lies that Ea was evil and should be destroyed. They pinned evil names to his character such as, Prince of Darkness and Evil Incarnate. But after reading this book and a few others on the subject, and through my personal research I was shocked to learn the power and influence of Freemasons throughout the history of mankind!! I was absolutely dumbfounded as to how these shadowy organisations controlled the fate of mankind and also played both sides to fight each other to death.

These organisations are the real masters and they are also responsible for all the warware and the death and destructions and killing of millions of humans. But the only thing all of us forget is the these freemasons are powerful but they are still slaves to

another race--a race that does not want humans to leave this planet and a race that wants to eliminate humans through warfare.

According to David Musa Pidcock, there were 14 lodges in pakistan as of 1980's. There is a freemason hall (built before independance) in Lahore, Punjab. The building has not been used for masonic purposes since the lodges were disbanded in 1972, when then Prime Minister of Pakistan, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto placed a ban on Freemasonry in Pakistan ,

The first Masonic Temple of the Lodge of Hope and Perseverance was built in 1859 at Anarkali, Lahore. Its site on Lodge Road is now occupied by Lady Maclagan Government High School. The District Grand Lodge of Punjab was established somewhere near the end of the 18th century. Lord Horatio Herbert Kitchener, who was a British Army General and statesman, was a member of the British Union Lodge No. 114 in Ipswich, England. He had also maintained headship of the District Grand Lodge of Punjab before his retirement. The lodge was then disbanded and for a time the building was unused. It has been used as a multi-purpose Punjab government building.

Other famous lodges in Rawalpindi were the Stewart Lodge No. 1960 E.C. and the Black Mountain Lodge No. 1256. The former was under British headship and the latter was headed by a Scottish Grand Master. There is not enough information given about the Stewart lodge, but according to a Masonic traveller's blog, one of the previous Grand Masters of the Black Mountain lodge of Rawalpindi was a person by the name of Yogendra Prakash Suri.

He had become a member of that lodge in 1946 and has been an active Mason ever since. Yogendra Prakash is currently a member of the Lodge Rock of Gwalior No. 16 in Jhansi, India. But that means even after independence, there were many lodges that were operating in the new homeland of Muslims. Nazir Bhatti, who is the editor of the Pakistan Christian Post, is Pakistan’s “First Knight of the Grand Priory of Pakistan of the Knights Templars of Scotland”. It might be of interest to know that Rudyard Kipling was inducted in the brotherhood in The Freemason Lodge in Lahore. To the natives of Lahore in India the Freemasons' hall was "a house of magic", because they wouldn't believe that anything but magic could bring together so many military men of all ranks, so many men of different classes or castes, and so many men of different religions. It was the magic hope of a universal brotherhood which captured a great writer's imagination and gave it the perseverance to depict that hope throughout a lifetime of gifted authorship. The Freemasons lodge in Karachi was part of that chain. The lodge in Karachi was built in 1914 in its current location but the original Masonic Lodge was built in 1845 in Karachi which eventually was handed over to Sindh Club administration. It has characteristics of Edwardian and Victorian style architecture. In 1842, Dr James Burnes, the provincial grandmaster of the Scottish Freemasons, issued orders for the formation of the Hope Lodge in ‘Kurrachee’. Nearly 170 years later, the Scottish Freemason Hope Lodge has been “ruined” by its current occupiers, the Sindh wildlife department, claims its former caretaker, Jeevan. On July 19, 1973, according to Jeevan, some government officials took away all the documentation belonging to the Freemasons. Their accounts were frozen a month later – and so Jeevan’s dues were never cleared – and the building fell into disuse.

Freemasonry was banned in Pakistan in 1972 by the then President Ali Bhutto. Laws were introduced into the country forbidding this society to meet and the buildings and artifacts were sequestered by the government. The old lodge building in Lahore is today government owned. As a result of this ban, all the lodges of the English and Scottish constitutions were closed, and since 1972 there have been 'officially' no more masonic meetings in Pakistan. In 1973 Freemason became an office for than Deputy Inspector General of Police Mr. Sadique Suleman. This building was turned into his office for the only purpose of Summit's tenure. This building was also called Jadoo Ghar building means House of Magic building. People say the spirits roam around in this building. It is a well guarded building right next to a Red Cross headquarter and a Police Station. Past governments tried to take over this building but it seems when someone tries a trick to get it but the roaming spirits in the building come in their way and stop the whole move. The Freemasons, were officially banned in Pakistan by former dictator president Ziaul Haq under the Martial Law Regulation (MLR) 56 in 1983, charging them of “anti-state” and “anti-Islam” activities and handing over their moveable and immoveable assets to provincial governments with immediate effect. In Punjab alone they possessed three prime properties: 90-The Mall (Lahore), 307 (Multan) and 1307 (Rawalpindi). At the time of partition, the estimated number of properties they possessed across Pakistan was around 30. However, what happened during Ziaul Haq’s regime was the epitome of a long going controversy starting in 1973 when the Punjab Assembly passed a resolution against Freemasons declaring their activities “anti-state” and “anti-Islam”. The federal government also took Punjab’s lead while Khan Abdul Qayum Khan, the interior minister at the time, declared them innocent. However, in 1973, the deputy commissioner of Lahore requisitioned 90-The Mall for the Islamic Summit for two months and the deputy inspector general (DIG) office was set up there as a makeshift arrangement, but the building was never returned even though the Lahore High Court (LHC) single and double bench decided in the Freemasons’ favour.

The government then moved the Supreme Court against the LHC verdict in 1978. Finally, Ziaul Haq took over and imposed a ban on the Freemasons, while in 1986 the Supreme Court decided that the issue was no more as the MLR 56 had been given legal cover under the 8th Amendment in 1985 and told the Freemasons to appeal at a “proper forum” in case of any grievances. Since the term “proper forum” has not been defined in any law, the Freemasons wrote to various high offices such as successive presidents and prime ministers, including both Nawaz Sharif and the late Benazir Bhutto, but did not receive any reply. Finally in 1995, Freemason Kabir A Sheikh and five others filed a writ petition (8907/95) challenging the MLR 56, pleading that they were a philanthropist organisation while building their argument around the history and legal status of 90The Mall, at the time under the use of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif. According to court records, Freemasons, all residents of the provincial capital, filed the writ petition through their counsel Dr Khalid Ranjha against the Punjab government, which was represented by the additional advocate general. During the course of the case, the Interior Ministry had also filed its comments on the issue saying that the available material showed the Freemasons were involved in “anti-state” and “anti-Islam” activities, to which Freemasons submitted an affidavit declaring that they practiced Islam as a religion and their beliefs were similar to common Muslims. Interestingly, however, the revenue records dating back to the 1950s and 1960s show the building now named 90-The Mall mentioned as “Kothi Jadugar” (Sorcerer’s House). The Freemasons had also won a case under the Corporation Act claiming the building in question had been declared a “temple”. Iran, Iraq and Saudi Arabia have also banned the organisation because of its controversial nature. Worldwide, Freemasons are famous for their secret rituals and for constructing buildings which supposedly have secret symbols inscribed into their architecture. Few other international organisations are surrounded by as much controversy as the Freemasons. There are 33 degrees of Freemasonry, while the ones who have filed the writ petition are ‘Masters’ and ‘Past Masters’, Freemasons of the 4th and 5th degree respectively. This has created a lot of anxiety among top government officials in the Punjab Civil Secretariat owing to the gravity of the situation as well as the mystery surrounding Freemasons, especially given that the next date of the hearing in the LHC is December 30. Many top officials have ordered books on Freemasonry from abroad to study their history and symbols and what they stand for, while a lot of rumours are making rounds in the corridors of power regarding the probable future of the prime offices under the possession of the Punjab government because if the court gives a verdict against the MLR 56, it would ultimately result in the Punjab government having to hand over all property back to the Freemasons.
