1947 & Pakistan- From a British Raj to an American Raj

By Majed Iqbal– Sixty eight years on since the creation of Pakistan we see misery, corruption, poverty, terrorism and the new menace of US occupation of a land that was created through great sacrifices in 1947 with blood to create an Islamic State where people of all faiths, colours and backgrounds could live peacefully.

This dream is yet to be realised. Inshallah Azza wa jal. People of Pakistan must remember the ideological struggle of pre-1947 to carve out a new state which would bring peace, security and prosperity under a new shade where Islam would be the guiding force for Political, Economic, Judicial, Military and social change. Instead, this wave of change was hijacked and managed by the British Raj, leaving a state in dismal turmoil that would live with us still decades on.

Martial Law, Dictatorships and Democracy have all played their role in the Political circus of Pakistani politics, with each one failing the people miserably. It is time to go back to the roots of the struggle for this state.

Today, Pakistan is seen by many across the Muslim World as a frontline state, holding the ropes of becoming the much needed catalyst for change for the rest of the Muslim Ummah to bring back Islam’s implementation in life once again. We simply cannot accept to interchange from a historical British Raj to todays American Raj. Millions did not sacrifice their life, wealth and property to see this. They moved for the call of Islam. If Pakistan was created to be a secular state then why did they migrate? They could have simply stayed in India and lived under a proposed secular order!

May Allah bless the people of Pakistan and grant victory through our work to save it and expand its borders across the Muslim World to become once again the leaders in the international arena in Politics, Good governance, Social cohesion, Citizenship for all, Education and peace & security with a robust Military that will defend this forthcoming state.

DISCLAIMER: Islam does not believe in nation states but a broad Islamic Khilafah state that will unite the Muslim World under a single leadership, governing over various regions, provinces and areas. We have to build this momentum for change. This responsibility is on the shoulders of every Muslim. Become part of this change and we will be victorious in this life and the next if Allah wills.
