    AN OPEN LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT OF PAKISTAN.

    BY A BHARTIYA MUSLIM

    I am a typical Muslim from Mumbai, who is very confused and upset because we are forced to follow and believe of the unrequired and forceful Islamism on us, by various fanatic Muslim religious outfits.

    The reason of me writing this way to you is that in India and in Pakistan, majority of the people are living in the same situation, Thanks to our great so called Rehnumas.(Leaders).

    Today I saw your speech regarding the atrocity and dastardly act committed by terrorists from your region in India, you said you will cooperate fully and jointly in the investigations in relate to the terrorist activity in India. That is really good in the gesture and appreciative. But I am thinking of some unanswerable and mutilated questions, as mutilated as our bodies are left after terrorist attacks on us.

    Since my birth, I have seen one hand which is coming forward always for peace and prosperity, is from India, and your side of hand is always in disguise. I do not understand why? And wish to understand your side of opinion on the following questions which is not allowing me to sleep in peace of my home. My only request to you is that kindly read my letter of request till the end.

    Question as follows :-

    1—ARE FANATICAL MUSLIM RELIGIOUS OUTFITS IN PAKISTAN REPRESENTING ISLAM IN TRUE FORM AND FOR THE WHOLE WORLD OF ISLAM ?

    Because, in my opinion, I have always seen and read that so called radical fanatic groups in Pakistan are worried of Muslims in India and across the world. They think that Muslims in India and across the globe are in dire need of their help, guidance and cooperation, and if these fanatic Muslim religious outfits will not help, Muslims around the globe will vanish.

    For your kind information, we the Muslims in India are the safest Muslims in the world, because we have full liberty of practicing our religion and religious obligations, which has been guaranteed by our Constitution.

    But I think in Pakistan, it is next to impossible to follow your own path freely and what I have read and seen that people are even killed while they are performing their Namaaz in the mosque. ARE KILLING MUSLIMS IN MOSQUE BY THE MUSLIMS, WHILE THEY ARE PRAYING JUSTIFIED BY ANY CHANCE OR WAY.(ISLAMIC OR ETHICAL).?

    Allhamdollih, since the independence, we can proudly say that nothing of this inhuman and Unislamic incident happened in India by any of the Muslim.

    By the grace of Allah Almighty, we are approximately 22 Crores Muslims living peacefully along with other communities in India. Unfortunately this Peace is always tested and Disturbed by your Evil Interference

    We are proud to be an Indian. we have one of the best education system in India and we have one of the most renowned Muslim Universities, Colleges, Institutions, Hospitals, Libraries, Trusts, Islamic Scholars, Artifactoes, Qaris, Haafiz – e – Quran, Religious Bodies, Aalims, Mushtahids, Scientists, Doctors, Intellectuals, Legal Endorsers and above all The Peers, Wali Allah and what not. Alhamdollilah.

    It is one of the customs of Islam for a Muslim to follow, i.e. EVERY MUSLIM SHOULD LOVE HIS COUNTRY ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE .AND MUSLIMS EVERY WHERE IN THE WORLD FOLLOWS THE SAME.SO AS WE INDIAN MUSLIMS.WE LOVE OUR COUNTRY THE MOST AND CAN DO ANYTHING FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR COUNTRY.

    So kindly tell me that is it possible for us Indian to follow your type of Islam which I am sure is not true to its sense. As I understand Islam in true form is a religion of Peace, Brotherhood, Equality, Kindness, Avoidance, Unity, Forgiveness and Prosperity.

    The Qur’an upholds the sanctity and absolute value of human life and states in Surah 6: Al-An’ am: 151:
    “do not take any human being’s life (the life) which God has declared to be sacred — otherwise than in (the pursuit of) justice: this has He enjoined upon you so that you might use your reason”

    I also clearly remember the Hadees of Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.S.).He says “I can feel the fragrance of Imaan coming in with the breeze from Hind” and who can forget the Akhari Khutba of Imam Hussein. Before his martyrdom in karbala, the Holy Imam said: “You have killed all my companions, my children, my brothers and even my little baby; now I tell you to leave me, I will migrate to Yemen, to Iran or even to the far off Hind (India), stain not your hands with my blood, which is the blood of the Holy Prophet himself, you will not have salvation”.

    This proves that even Prophet and His Grand Son had love and affection for (Hind) India.

    Mr. President, Please keep this in mind that on 14th August 1947, as soon as you became Pakistan, you ceased to be the part of this HIND, for which the Blessings are bestowed by Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.S.) and his beloved Grand Son.

    Mr. President, You are kindly requested to pay your kind and thoughtful attention 100 times and discuss this with your Olemas and Fanatical Outfits before you interfere with the internal affairs of Indian Muslims, who are blessed and gifted by the Pillars of True Islam. Kindly don’t play with your eternal life henceforth.

    We the Muslims in India and hopefully around the world will be highly obliged and thankful to you if you, if henceforth your unwanted interference is avoided in future.

    Thank you for giving your precious time and thought to my letter.

    Was-salaam,

    Indian Muslim.

  • ?

    I Dont understand clear it to me are you writing this letter to the Sri Lnakan President or the Pakistan President?????????? I would really like to know.

  • An Indian Muslim

    I totally agree with the comments of the Bhartiya Muslim brother, instead of trying to put your leg in India,try to put your own house in order.

    You must have felt the pain of Terrorism yourself when you lost your wife to these fanaticals.How come you have forgotten the pain so quickly.

    We as Indian muslims are proud of our Nation and religion.
    please ask these fanatics to stop the so called Jehad.as it will never be helpful to Islam or muslims anywhere in the world.

    The petty Amount you have in your reserve bank can be used in uplifting your economy and creating jobs for your pakistani brothers,as the world knows that pakistan is on the verge of bankrupty.Instead of wasting the money and resourses to the so called Jehad.

    Try to remember the Verses of Holy Quran,which never permitted the killings of Innocent people( Hindu,Muslim or that of any religion)

    In the end I request you to Please let us live in peace and try to revive the economy of pakistan or ask us( The Indians) we will definately help you.

    Thanks

    A True Indian Muslim
