DR ALLAMA IQBAL, QUAID-E-AZAM AND GHULAM AHMED PERVAIZ
ALL THREE LAYING THE FOUNDATIONS OF RECONSTRUCTION IN ISLAM
Allah’s blessing was giving a philosopher like Dr Allama Iqbal to the region. With his epoch book, “The Reconstruction of religious thought in Islam” (not even fully understood to this day and requires some philosopher to unravel it contents), Dr Iqbal set the pace for bringing modern life in equation with the Quran itself. The meaning of Ijtehad came fully alive under him. Before his death Dr Iqbal did two things phenomenal in nature. One was to convince a legendary honest person like Muhammed Ali Jinnah to the cause for Pakistan, and the other to literally command a young man like Ghulam Ahmad Pervaiz to continue the process of enlightenment in Islam. The funny and bizarre part is that all three were stigmatized by the priesthood in Islam, now normally referred in light language as the Mullahs. Although the word Maulana and its derivative was a subject of reverence, but the priests had stolen these titles to acclaim not an Islamic way of life but going back to the anarchy of pre-Islamic civilization in new forms and words.
The letters to Muhammed Ali Jinnah of Dr Allama Iqbal convinced the future saviour of Pakistan and he left everything for this challenge of life itself. The rest is history. Quaid-e-Azam literally sacrificed his life for the new country and was stopped with many ruses from giving a new constitution to the country. The draft that he was working on disappeared from his bed stand. There are various clues that his death was planned by lobbies, and when Penicillin as an antibiotic was available, why this was not given to him. An injection about half an hour before his death is a literal suspect with many people, and there was no independent medical cover to all the happenings. Quaid-e-Azam knew that Dr Iqbal had asked G.A. Pervaiz to continue the struggle for revamping thought processes in Islam. That is why a very close relation developed between the two and Pervaiz Sahib was the only person alive, who could walk into the office and life of Quaid-e-Azam without even an appointment. A much publicized letter of Quaid-e-Azam reveals that he was asking Pervaiz Sahib advice for inclusion of various persons in the cabinet. G.A. Pervaiz was given the role of Assistant Secretary in the cabinet of Quaid-e-Azam. An idea was formed to invite the German convert to Islam, Allama Asad to head a Department of Islamic Reconstruction. A brilliant idea!
All the so called Mullahs had opposed the very idea of Pakistan. But when the country was made, they all came here to sabotage the initiative of the three legendary icons of Pakistan. In course of time all three would be given fatwas of being Kafirs for going back to the Quran, meant depletion of resources of the paid Mullah, who thrived on finances gained through confusing people and straying them away from Islamic concepts. The Mullahs are not in a position to oppose Quaid-e-Azam and Dr Allama Iqbal, so they soft pedal them now. But the opposition towards Pervaiz Sahib was so phenomenal that one thousand Mullahs in a sitting declared him to be a Kafir. These are the similar set of people, who even termed Quaid-e-Azam as Kafir-e-Azam. The people of Pakistan are deprived of the truth for they fear the wrath of violence associated with such people. A Rising Pakistan must conquer their fears and assert the IDEOLOGY OF PAKISTAN. It is now or never!
