in response to reader comment: artificial state of pakistan

Submitted by General Mirza Iskandar Khan (United States), Nov 18, 2009 at 22:49

Listen to you ... I mean, are you serious?

Pakistan was created by bigots with the help of british colonists.

Pakistan was an idea coined in late 1890s, and became a reality in 1947 thanks to lawyers, poets, and scholars like Allama Iqbal and Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah.

The creation of Pakistan was in reaction to "biggots" and "british colonists"

And we are proud of our nation. Under hindu rule, life was impossible.

All mongol descendants were supposed to move to pakistan but they didn't because they predicted that there will be no democracy in pakistan but only theocracy!

care to explain?????

It turned out to be true.Most of the time pakistan was ruled by military dictators just like any muslim country as muslims don't believe in democracy.

Military dictators as a result of mismanagement by civilian governments.....and every time the Army came, the masses cheered.

In Pakistan, we value democracy, free judiciary. If you followed news in 2007, including the "Lawyers Long March" in 2008, maybe you would have the common sense to believe otherwise.

Most of hindus in bigoted pakistan are living in hell

they are not bound by an evil state-sponsored caste system the way they are in india!!!! lol!!!!!!!!

The small number of hindus in Pakistan live mostly in rural Sindh. They own their own farmlands and are self-sufficient. They are also very patriotic Pakistanis, and we love them.

as they are being persecuted all the time and hindu girls are abducted very frequently to get married to musim boys by force

?????????

yes there have been untoward incidents, not just against hindus, but also christians and also Shiia Muslims.

But we have a Ministry dedicated solely to minority affairs. We have NGOs, Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (internationally accredited), thinktanks, and even EDHI foundation which address any violation against minorities --whether they are hindu or whatever

Do you care to explain to me why Sikhs were MASSACRED (read genocided) in 1984 after the assasination of indira ghandi?? Many of the Sikhs fled and took refuge in Pakistan.

Care to explain to me why Christians were massacred, Churches and houses burned -- in Orissa State? The attackers were BJP sponsored hindu nationalists. Even the POPE had some not so nice words about the treatment of Christians in india

Pakistan exists because of hatred of hindus

No, Pakistan exists because the Muslims of the subcontinent wanted their own homeland. One with a different social and economic system. One where we could freely practice our religion without discrimination and caste-system being forcd down our throats.

And thanks to our Founding Father(s), the dream was attained.

If recent events are any reminder of history pakistan will destroy itself in a very short time by internal strife.

the security situation in Northwest Pakistan is indeed troubling. But Operation Rah e Nejat is underway. Much of the areas bordering Afghanistan are being secured as I type this. Pakistan Army is being credited by all world leaders and politicians.

And 170 million Pakistanis are supporting the army, and united against evil extremists. Many of these terror elements are being funded by indias intelligence agencies, and we recently discussed this with Hillary Clinton during her visit. That said, to get a job done right you gotta do it yourself.

We will handle indian terrorism on our own. We have the 5th largest Armed Forces in the world, and as of 1998 --despite sanctions and embargos -- we are a nuclear power too.

...

p.s. go learn about Rana Bhagwandas (former Chief Justice of Pakistan) before telling me that Pakistan discrimnates against hindus

perhaps you can also read these article when you have time.
