INTERNATIONAL HEADLINES AND LIVE TELECASTS
HOMO CRANIUMLESS DISCOVERED IN PAKISTAN
Missing link between Zombies and humans not fossilized but with living DNA
Today headlines were made when a Professor of a world famous University announced his latest discovery. In search of fossils in Chakwal area, an old man there revealed a truth to him. Channels like National Geographic, Discovery, Planet Earth are all eager to telecast live coverage. Instead of decayed bones, living specimens were discovered in major cities of Pakistan, as well as British period demarcated feudal areas. Apparently the specimens are alive and well, but it is said, that dissections have revealed that the craniums are empty of grey matter and full of mere sawdust.
A pathologist reveals that it could be a result of congenital disease. Perhaps ages ago some sort of grey matter existed in zombies form, but with time, the disease spread and cannot be controlled anymore. An American based pathologist Dr Imran suggested that perhaps drops like Polio ones can be diagnosed in laboratory and given to these people for return to humanity in perhaps a thousand years. A lobby in Pakistan suggested forceful extermination of the species before the disease becomes epidemic an there is no chance of recovery.
Most people believe that we can issue Export license and export these many homo craniumless species to outside world, or they can be used as testing robots for mission to Mars, and elsewhere. Whatever their use, they are certainly not required in Pakistan, and especially in role of national leadership.
Is the world blind? Deaf and dumb? Ostriches with head in the sand. The most beautiful place in the world, with the most beautiful people , with background supposing to include even the Lost tribe of Israel. People claim that Jesus Christ died in Kashmeer, while others claim that even Moses was there. Some factual evidence has also emerged in this historical context. Singing, dancing, people, with flowers and peace for the world. Just due to financial gains from business discourse, turn a blind eye to all the wrong being done in Kashmeer.
The first shame is not on India but the actual shame is on Pakistani leadership. They have forgotten all rules of fair play. Greed has blinded their eyes to the wails and cries of our usurped Kashmeer. The ruse is very simple. Make it unprofitable for people to seek justice by buying out their so called leaders. Gutless and spineless leadership will eventually rot in hell, we all know that, as a matter of our eternal faith. Nations rise on their level of justice.
The war on Kashmeer is obviously ideological but it is also a war of Water and water is considered the most precious asset of the future. Rivers originate in Kashmeer and who controls Kashmeer, controls the rivers flow of India and Pakistan. Kashmeer is power in the hands of any one. An eventual revolution is over due. It will come. But how many more lives it will take? That is on our leadership. Plebiscite is just a way of gaining time and time was gained by India. Now it is time to wrest control of Kashmeer from the clutches of shame and death.
Kashmeer touches all of us in one way or the other. Really free from prejudices, Kashmeeri men and women married into different ethnic families of Pakistan, and most of us have Kashmeer in our blood. But there is even more. The man who gave us the very idea of Pakistan orginated in Kashmeer. That is our esteemed Dr Allama Muhammed Iqbal. It is no small thing that our ideology is based on Kashmeeri sources. We all must love and honour Kashmeer and be prepared to give our sacrifices for its embracing its family that is Pakistan.
SHER ALI AFRIDI 11TH MARCH 1872
THE HANGING AND AFTERWARDS
A ruthless revenge with his body
A journalist travelled to visit the execution of the Assassin of Lord Mayo and reported in the press the following, which is worthy of note, as an act of utter and disdainful revenge:
“I had a long interview with the prisoner the evening previous to his execution. He talked quite freely, and appeared to think he had done a fine thing. He had been told about an hour before I saw him that he was to be hanged next morning. We got up steam early next morning and went to Chatham, passing him with his police guard in a boat on the way. As soon as we were moored we got over to Viper Island, where the gaol is. There was no unusual preparation for the affair, and the convicts were at work as usual. Indeed, it was not generally known that it was to be. There were from 30 to 40 Europeans present, no natives except the police and sepoys, and no European soldiers. About a quarter to 8 the fellow was led out. He was smiling and quite collected. The police officer who came down to investigate the affair, as he ascended the steps leading up to the scaffold, asked him a question. He shook his head with a smile, as he said nahin sahib. As soon as he got up he asked the hangman to turn his face towards Mecca, and then began to pray very loudly and quickly. He said two prayers, and kept on repeating the Mussulman’s creed. The drop fell at seven minutes to 8 o’clock exactly. The knot slipped round to the back of his neck, and although he had nearly seven feet of a drop, his neck was not broken, so he died very hard. He was hanging about ten minutes before he ceased to struggle. As he was scantily clothed, and his legs and most of his body naked, his struggles were distinctly visible. We were quite close to the scaffold. After he was dead we adjourned, and returned to see him cut down at 9. His face was not distorted in the least, but wore an expression of pain. We afterwards went to see the post mortem examination. There were only eight persons present. The prisoner’s lungs, liver, heart, &c., were taken out and weighed. The top of his head was cut off, and his brain taken out: the latter weighed 47 ounces.”
People today talk of the mantra of British justice. Does this looks like justice to anyone? It paints the assassin in a better way than those who executed him and even defiled his body as an act of utter revenge.
HOW DID DARA SHIKOH ACTUALLY DIE?
A STATE COMMISSION DELIVERED VERDICT
Speculative stories with out substance
Shah Jahan the father, and Arjumand Bano (Mumtaz Mahall) the mother, and of all the children, two brothers resenting each other from day one. The personalities of both were different, but the resentment was in more emotional terms. The father, Shah Jahan loved his eldest son Dara Shikoh so much, that he was not willing to see anyone else, not even his other children. Whereas Dara Shikoh was not coming up to any standards, Aurangzeb excelled in everything. Dara Shikoh was arrogant and rude with people. Aurangzeb was so polite, that even the father forbade him to carry such a character. On a military mission Dara Shikoh (to Qandahar) failed, and started using the help of magicians (homosexual pervert) to win wars. Aurangzeb was battle hardened and with enormous guts by any standards. A famous incident occurred when an elephant lost his cool and ran towards the brothers. Dara Shikoh scampered away scared for his life while Aurangzeb stood his ground as a mere teenager. His bravery won him the heart of courtiers. Scared of the popularity of Aurangzeb, Shah Jahan kept Dara Shikoh near him and sent Aurangzeb far away.
Fearing Aurangzeb Alamgeer’s credentials to be a King, the father planned his very end. Yes this was not enough, Shah Jahan planned the assassination of his own son. Aurangzeb was invited to court and plans were laid to kill him. The sister Roshan Ara discovered the plan and warned Aurangzeb not to come to court, and his life was saved, much to the resentment of both Shah Jahan and Dara Shikoh. Now was this known by people who without knowing anything, resort to fantasy versions put in books as well as the internet. A detailed discussion can be found in my book AINAH KHANAH LAHORE OF PRINCE DARA SHIKOH, published in January, 2014.
The official history ‘Maaseray-Alamgeeri’ tells us:
“At this time Bahadur Khan brought Dara Shikoh to the exalted court, he was kept in the palace of Khizirabad. As it was necessary for various reasons to remove the dust of his life, from the plain of the world of the living, on the night of tuesday, the 30th August, the lamp of his light was quenched, and he was buried in Humayoun’s tomb.”
Today there are two graves in the mausoleum of Humayoun pointed out as the possible grave of Dara Shikoh. But both have very respectable sarcophagus on them, and it is considered, that Dara Shikoh was given a dignified burial, details of death obviously are unknown.
DEATH OF PRINCE DARA SHIKOH
When two parties fight and the fight reaches a zenith, it is inevitable that one party will lose, and the other will win. If Aurangzeb Alamgeer would have lost, surely Dara Shikoh would not have forgiven him but meted out a horrible end to him. As to what the end would be is hypothetical, given that Dara Shikoh lost. Foreign travelers are fond of spreading canards, and claim to be where they were not. Obviously Dara Shikoh was brought to Delhi humbled in all ways on an elephant and later put to death. But the death was not whimsical. A regular committee of various people (including Islamic scholars) sat and deliberated on the fate of Dara Shikoh. There is plenty of evidence to this day that his statements literally amounted to heresy (he held that the Quran cannot be understood without reading the Gitas), but even then his life was considered to be spared. Votes were cast, for and against, and he lost. A group of Ulema (not Mullahs) of the times judged him to be a heretic. But the decision for his death was political. Sparing him would have resulted in endless strife for the newly oriented kingdom.
The foreigners Francois Catrou, Niccolao Manucci and Francois Bernier had all tried to paint a pathetic picture of his end, as they may have been a witness to the end of Dara Shikoh. Whatever happened and Nazer is considered by them to be the person who beheaded Dara Shikoh, cannot be known. But there is a marked paradox attached to the story of the death of Dara Shikoh! If Dara Shikoh was really beheaded, then how come his body was put on an elephant again and paraded in Delhi? How could a headless body be paraded in Delhi? It is literally not possible for anyone to do, otherwise it would have invited endless wrath of people. But the real joke goes further. If these foreigners had pinpointed that Dara Shikoh had died a Hindu, it was obviously believable. But their statement borders on ridicule of the highest order. That Dara Shikoh died a Christian.
The words used are:
“The Christian sentiments with which the missionaries had endeavoured to inspire him, were revived in the closing hour of his life. He requested to be allowed a conversation with Father Busee, a Flemish Jesuit, who had formerly instructed him in our sacred Mysteries. All communication with the Europeans was denied to him. In this universal desolation, the Prince sought for consolation in God. He was heard to say more than once: Mahomet has destroyed me, Jesus Christ the son of the Eternal will save me.”
In Persian the words used are:
“Mahammad ma-ra mikushad, ibn Allah Maryam mibashaid.”
These pesky travelers are saying that all communication with the Europeans was denied to the Prince, and yet they seem to be in communication with him all the time. Even the most obvious things reveal glaring lies, and yet people are reluctant to see them in perspective.
These travelers state that when the head of Dara Shikoh was brought to Aurangzeb Alamgeer, he wept and blurted out his sentiments by calling Dara Shikoh as ‘Kam-bakht’. Why was there even a need to see the head? These are stories made by the priests merely to defame Aurangzeb Alamgeer, who they rightly feared, for his faith in Islam. The ‘Fatwa Alamgeeri’ is a magnum opus of those days. Indeed Dara Shikoh had everything and a thinking mind too, and it was his bad luck to find wrong companionship and to be swept away from the annals of truth. The most destructive company was that of Sarmad, the Armenian Jew, who was a professed homosexual and roamed around totally naked on the streets of Delhi (naturally not befitting the heir to the throne to be seen with such bohemians). It is indeed a tragedy to have everything and to lose it. Dara Shikoh had everything, but lost the confidence of the people. Even if a referendum had been held, the people would have voted against him. Allah tests us all the time!
LORD MAYO, MAYO SCHOOL OF ARTS AND SHER ALI
THE STRANGEST INCIDENT OF AN ISLAMIC FANATIC
Assassination in the Adaman Islands 1872
After the famous Punjab Industrial Exhibition, there was felt a need to make an Industrial College in Lahore. It was made next to the Lahore Museum and John Lockwood Kipling became its first Principal. It was named after Lord Mayo. Lord Mayo was of course the Viceroy and Governor General of India.
On a visit to the Adaman Islands, a convict there named Sher Ali, was convinced that he was ordained by Allah to get rid of this rascal who was usurping their country. With least expectation, he got hold of a dagger and stabbed Lord Mayo to death. The murder happened on 8th February, 1872. Lord Mayo struggled for survival in his cart as the blood started to flow in streams. His last words were LIFT UP MY HEAD. And then he died.
It was an ominous beginning for an art institution and this label is there on the background of a college with its founder dying an awry death. And the assassin seems to be like ones we hear nowadays. Sher Ali was 30 years of age and from clan of Kokee Kheyal from Khyber. Before his execution, he termed himself as a ‘Shaheed’. Today the story seems strange in perspective, when the same thing is literally happening every day. It is like the world never changes; everything remains the same.
