Pakistani Muslims do not need a foreign enemy!
In presence of Government Army, Pakistani Muslims do not need any enemy! Ibn-e-Pakistan Introductory presentation – Pakistani Muslims do not need any enemy! Armies of any country or of nation exist to serve two purposes, first and the foremost is to defend its civilian from threats and attacks of enemy and second is to safeguard the interests of its people. Unfortunately, Government armies of Muslim countries exist only to kill their own civilians as “Terrorists” and to protect and serve the interests of Kuffar. I do not know how and from where to start as there are many facts buried deep down in propaganda of Western and Pakistani media which has led Pakistani patriots and nationalists to believe that “Operation Rah-e-Haq” and then “Operation Rah-e-Nijaat” are Pakistan’s war. Today we see that our self-proclaimed paid experts are continuously explaining security situation, terrorism in Swat, praising role of military’s operations in tribal areas and putting all blame on foreign supported anti-Pakistan miscreants. Today, whole nation is celebrating the bloodshed and praising death of Pakistani tribal people and dignifying deaths of Pakistani soldiers without thinking beyond the propaganda. To do justice and to achieve “near correct” opinion we should know the background of any conflict otherwise we can be led astray very easily by any one let alone paid experts to execute particular scripts. In this article, I will try to summarize:
Timeline of events in FATA and Pakistan’s alliance with US-led coalition forces. Role of Pakistan in the light of Quran and Sunnah. Evaluation of projected image of Baitullah Mehsud. Conclusion – yours to decide.
