Pani bhi massakkhar hai, hawa bhi hai massakkhar
Kiya ho jo nigah-e-falaq-e-peer badal jaye
Dekha hai muluqiyat-e-afrang ne jo khwaab
Mumkin hai kay us khwaab ki tabeer badal jaye
Tehran ho agar Alam-e-Mashriq ka Geneva
Shayad Kara-e-Arz ki taqdeer badal jaye
Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when people drift away from the message
of the Divine creator that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of mora
ls, a corrupted public and political conscience, is incompatible with freedom. N
o free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people b
ut by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue
; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.
It is therefore evident that Islamic states in todays world have let go of their
morals and fundamental principles which they once held in their highest regard.
It was because of strict adherence to their morals and beliefs that the early Mu
slims were able to stretch their borders from the Arabian peninsula to Europe ,A
sia and Africa.
As a result of their deviation from their religion and beliefs the Muslims becam
e vulnerable to parasites which caused their downfall.A downfall which was so se
vere that literally after the first world war the former grandeaur of the Islami
c empire was lost to the Colonial powers of that time.It was at that desperate t
ime that Mohammed Ali Jinnah established the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.It was
in the form of Pakistan that the Muslim world got a small glimmer of hope.
However it seemed that some forces did not want this young nation to grow up int
o well-established Islamic country capable of uniting the Ummah again.As a resul
t those forces tried to weaken the foundations from the day one by eliminating t
he leaders who were praised by the masses.Jinnah couldn`t stay much longer as a
result of his deadly tuberclosis ,he passed away on 11 September 1948.Then the n
ext in line was Liaquat Ali Khan ,the first Prime Minister of this emerging nati
on was shot dead in a public gathering in Rawalpindi.After him the reigns of thi
s nation came in Khwaja Nazimuddins hands.However due to the widespread anti-Ahm
adiya movement the country was facing an unstable situation both on the politica
l and religious grounds .Khawaja Nazimuddin was summoned by the then Governor Ge
neral Malik Ghulam Mohammed ,along with his Cabinet and ordered to resign due to
their inability to resolve the chaotic condition . Khawaja Nazimuddin declined
but was dismissed by Malik Ghulam Muhammad on April 17, 1953. After the dismissa
l of Khawaja Nazimuddin, the Governor General appointed Muhammad Ali Bogra, an u
nknown person from East Pakistan, as the Prime Minister.Most historians agree th
at the removal of Khawaja Nazimuddin was improper, undemocratic and objectionabl
e because the Prime Minister still enjoyed the confidence of the Parliament. Thi
s act set an unhealthy tradition and precedent for the future Presidents who wer
e fond of removing elected governments, thus creating continued instability in t
he country.As a result the country passed from one phase of deterioration into a
