LEADERS OF IRAN TURKEY PAKISTAN FEBRUARY 1960 IN LAHORE
SHAHENSHAH OF IRAN, CELAL BAYER AND PRESIDENT AYUB KHAN
Dissatisfaction with CENTO made leaders of Iran, Turkey and Pakistan get together in Karachi and Lahore. Sharing some rare pictures and we can see some rare pictures of some leaders here. Strange that shortly afterwards Governor Akhtar Hussain was let out as well as Celal Bayer in Turkey, who was overthrown by the Military there. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto as well as Mrs Bhutto can be seen. B.A. Qureshi is there too as Chief Secretary West Pakistan. Queen Farah Diba is visible too.
RCD was formed in 1964 but the concept was sabotaged later. It was an outstanding idea but did not suit some lobbies at all. In fact President Ayub Khan ids responsible for abundant of good in Pakistan.
GHAZNAVID SECRET SERVICE DIWAN-BARID OF LAHORE
REPORT OF HISTORIAN TAJ-UD-DIN HASSAN NIZAMI
In the spurt of the Ghaznavid conquests in this region, Sultan Mahmud Ghaznavi realized the importance of an agency trying to collect information for consolidation of his rule. A secret network was formed and the informers to the Sultan included many Hindu Rajas. Hindus spying on Hindus as well as spying on the representatives of the Sultan, so that the Sultan may receive adequate information for all actions. This was the first Muslim Secret Service of the region. We do not have adequate knowledge of the network but many of the Sultan’s conquests were a result of timely information of gathering events.
When Sultan Muhammed Ghauri was assassinated by the Ismaeli assassins on the bank of the river, near the village of Damyak, on 15th March 1206 AD, it was a failure of intelligence. The Fidai Mulahidah were ruthless in their work and had made everyone realize the importance of espionage. They had chosen to secretly swim in the river and attack the Sultan while he was asleep in his tent. A number of other prominent leaders through out the Indian region were caught and murdered in cold blood. The new Sultan Qutb-ud-din Aibeg knew all this well. A very methodical secret service was set by him in Lahore, as he ruled most of his life from Lahore itself. Even when in Delhi, he would come to Lahore for weekends. Although famous that he died naturally when playing polo in Lahore, Taj-ud-din Hassan Nizami paints a different picture. It was known before hand that he was to be assassinated and the saddle maker in the mohalla cursed him on way, and predicted his end that day. It is reputed that a bur was placed under the saddle of his horse so that the horse would panic and throw him down. Lack of intelligence resulted in his death.
In a class system like Hindustan, resentments were great. Ethnic played a great role, and there was no unity amongst the various Hindu Rajas. There is an interesting fact narrated in the Chach-nama about Jats and Gujjars. These people were literally slaves and held in utter contempt by the rulers. The historian Peter Jackson himself quotes this:
“It (Chach-nama) alleges that Muhammed Bin Qasim, the conqueror of Sind, learned of the disabilities imposed on a local people , the Jats, in the era of the deposed Brahman dynasty. One was that the Jats were to take dogs with them whenever they went out of doors, in order that they might be recognized.”
When there was so much disparity, how could the society function? One of the reason for the success of the Muslim conquests was that many classes of people were not considered fit to fight a war with enemies. And these were the people who befriended Muslims and how the Rajas lost their hold due to their own ruthlessness with their own people.
The formation of Diwan-Barid was inevitable. To execute the functions of the State, a very effective intelligence gathering system was evolved and named as Diwan-Barid. The exclusive group composed of many rungs of life, including Rajas themselves, had the responsibility of gathering information and providing to the Sultan well in time. We see today that espionage activities in modern times are considered really essential for the survival of a country. More was at stake at that time, and Lahore famous for people of culture, also had its share of the Secret agents of those times., History goes on repeating it self and man goes on making the same mistakes. This is all well elucidated by Taj-ud-din Hassan Nizami in the times of the Sultan himself.
Rudyard Kipling in his story of Kim of Lahore narrates the actual presence of secret agents in the Serai of Muhammed Sultan in Lahore. The adventures of Kim tells us of the risks involved in this venture, and involved Afghan merchants traveling through the city. A personal confession of an American secret agent tells us that he was once a student at the American School in Lahore. Amazing! There are naturally two kinds of agents. One working for good of the country and one working with utter malice. We need to recognize that in our analysis of secret services. Today ISI is the successor of Diwan-Barid of a 1000 years ago. And no doubt what Qutub-ud-din did then, today the same is being done again. Saving the identity and integrity of Pakistan. The same passion generated by Allah-0-Akbar!
INTELLECTUALIZING MIR JAFFERS IN PRESENT FOLK LORE
HEROES NOBODIES AND NOBODIES HEROES GAME PLAN
Fairy tales are becoming tales of nightmares. One cannot imagine that in the days of Christmas, happy visions of figures like Santa Claus have been replaced by images of Krampus, the incarnated devil. This is work of so called intellectual people or more specifically Evil geniuses. Fight between Good and Evil is taking an ugly turn. So called intellectual people talking about fairy tales no more but tales of horror. The ascent of humankind being downgraded as descent into oblivion. We are told that a segment of the world population consider Satan as their hero and waiting for him to ruin the positive nature of human life. How can intellectual people downgrade themselves into immorality?
The same condition is apparent in Pakistan. Our national heroes are not remembered at all. Even persons like Quaid e Azam and Dr Allama Iqbal are subject to puerile criticism. Moronic wimps with little understanding of life. Undoing the messages of various Prophets as well as the Rahmat ul Almeen Prophet (PBUH) of Islam. A few media favourites whose names are taken all the time are on record as bearing animosity against Pakistan. Media turning these enemies who hate the Pakistani Ideology as our saviours. Defenders of Sohni darti allergic to Pak Sarzameen Shad Bad with its Islamic contents. Their mission blurring of boundaries and elimination of Ideology. Heavily supported by extremists across the border. Evil geniuses or merely evil personified, those are the icons of another world not Pakistan. Supported by heavy financial influx of resources.
M.A. Rahman Chughtai the proud son of Pakistan is a symbol of patriotism to an idea. The Idea of Pakistan is the first step towards world peace and engendering an Islamic code of life. The Iqballian dream to become a reality of life. We should make a list of our true heros and expose those allergic to our country. Pakistan Forever!
Every day the newspaper carry bad things,. The television is like wise. Videos on the net are doing same things. Brainwashing our children with messages of hopelessness. Literal bullshit about aliens, space ships, signs of end of times and every kind of crap possible to take energy and hope of nation away. A few days back there was a crap about an earthquake which will destroy Lahore into two portions. Some mysterious star is rising and it does not bode swell. Shitty forecasters painting doom 24/7. Just for taking bribes for licentious living and alcoholic consumption.
The message of Allah is that following the principles laid down by divine reality, will eliminate fear from the hearts of people. The cycle of life is continuous. The Compassion of Allah infinite. Rise Pakistan rise! The lobbies fear you. They know if you resurrected from your hibernating sleep, they are in deep trouble. The quagmire of hopelessness be thrown away. A beautiful tomorrow awaits you. It will not come on its own. You will have to fight for it. Quran brought this hope to us. We will not let Satan steal it from us.
Does Satan thinks that Pakistan is a country of Buffoons? Puerile behaviour from an aggressive world is the silliest thing in the world. When we put our presence on the internet, it was a new world. We were not familiar with same. People kept on telling me, internet presence is very important in the modern world. They forgot to tell me it is also the BULLSHIT of the world. So called educated societies and civilized nations bent upon crushing every thing positive about Pakistan. Gutless wimps acting as warriors on the internet in media wars.
Take the Pakistani Army. Once Stephen Cohen used to say that they will never allow the Pakistani Army to become an Islamic Army. And yet never realized, it was always one. The highs and lows of course belong to every nation. But the best times of Pakistan were always under Army rule. Security and stability but even most important, Pakistan Army became saviours of Pakistani Ideology. When the degenerative system of democracy brought in morons as politicians, most of whom had really deprivated childhoods and greed rocked their soulless bodies. Pakistan Army zindabad!
Chughtai Museum established its credentials for exposing the malignancy of the puerile world. A few days back on our website and blog we found the term ACCOUNT SUSPENDED. Amazed at what had happened, our computer geniuses went into play. A dangerous technical attack had happened on us and both our things went down. Presence on the internet was no more. We obviously understood the sources of same. What was our reaction? I WAS SO PROUD OF MYSELF AND I WAS SO PROUD OF MY NATION. We were making a DIFFERENCE. And the difference the morons could not tolerate and thought they would bring us down. They actually put a new life in our endeavour. I was telling everyone. Look we are that important that they can think of blowing us up. We are proud Pakistanis proud of our nation and proud of our Pakistani Army. And now we are even more proud of ourselves.
M.A. Rahman Chughtai is an icon of Pakistan. He was not merely an artist but a proud Iqballian in his spirit. He had spent nearly 20 years in the presence of Dr Allama Iqbal. Pakistani Ideology was in his blood and soul. He was averse to the Mullah as much as Dr Allama Iqbal himself. Their mission was to bring Islam with Ijjtehad in tune to the requirements of the time. The permanent values never change. But Islam keep itself abreast with the changing environment by finding solutions through a democratic process. The choice of Quaid e Azam in people like Muhammed Asad, and G.A. Pervez is obvious. Muhammed Asad’s brilliant article on constitution in Pakistan is most relevant today. Dr Abdul Wadud’s book on Quranocracy eye opener for our times.
Pakistan is not a country of buffoons. We do not worship Satan, we throw stones at him in Hajj but otherwise we fire missiles at Satanic forces. Pakistan is here to stay, and Pakistani Army will guarantee it for us.
