Let’s paint our flag green, we don’t deserve white

Published: August 10, 2012

If you are a minority in Pakistan, you are undoubtedly familiar with brutal persecution. DESIGN: JAHANZAIB HAQUE

Have you ever been so severely bullied in school that changing your section or your school seemed like the only way to escape the torture your peers had you under?

If you haven’t, feel blessed. If you have, I guess I need not explain how humiliating and belittling the experience is. It has you living in constant terror, bile slowly rising up your throat when the bully emerges; it can make you beg and plead for mercy; it can even make you wet your pants.

For a bullied student, the solace that probably keeps him/her sane is that he gets to escape once school hours are over.

Now, just close your eyes and imagine that there is no escape. Imagine that you are trying to run from your tormentor, but suddenly you realise that your legs have been chopped off. You drag your torso across the ground frantically, but there is just no escape. He has you cornered and is ready to pounce.

Can you even imagine living like this all day and all night with no hope of respite?

If you are a minority in Pakistan, then the answer, most definitely, is yes.

Just yesterday reports emerged that 60 Hindu families had decided to leave Pakistan from Balochistan and Sindh, for India. While some are saying that they have left only to perform pilgrimage, the reasons for their departure are still unclear and the Chief Minister of Sindh Qaim Ali Shah has taken notice. I, for one, wouldn’t be surprised if they have left us for good. It is undeniable that many, many Hindus have suffered at the hands of the Muslims of Pakistan. In fact, Dr Ramesh Kumar Vankwani, the patron in chief of the Pakistan Hindu Council, has stated that dozens of Hindu families have been migrating to India every month!

After many beatings, rapes, forceful conversions, lootings and verbal abuse, it wouldn’t faze me to see even these Hindus say goodbye. Pakistan is not their home. That little strip of white on the flag is mute. There is no space in the land of the pure for anyone whose opinion differs from the mainstream.

The departure of these Hindus will sadly leave Pakistan 60 entire families short of the diversity it so badly needs.

It is true that I may be lacking in knowledge as to the real reasons behind why these Hindus are actually leaving. My father says the situation is a lot more complicated than what the news is reporting. However, can we actually stand brazen-faced and deny that minorities are not persecuted in Pakistan?

How many of you remember that poor Christian girl who was charged with blasphemy for misspelling the word naat?

How many of you remember the Ahmadi leader who was gunned down barely two months ago in Karachi?

We cry foul at the plight of the Muslims in Myanmar, who are being targeted due to ethnic stifle; we wring our hands at the massacre of the Muslims in Assam; we raise eyebrows at the Wisconsin temple shooter when he said that he thought he was targeting Muslims, but who are we to point fingers?  Someone wise once said that when you point a finger at someone, remember that three fingers point back you. In Pakistan’s case, this couldn’t be more accurate.

Let’s paint our flag green on the 14th of this month. Pakistan doesn’t deserve its precious minorities.

    Really interesting piece am having from Express Tribune, the writer is expressing everything with a very enthusiastic style and make the piece more attractive for the ones like me. Am belonging to Balochistan, every day the Hindos, Bhais, Ahmedis and others are abducted for the ransom. In Quetta a female Niloper Fareedoon Abadan, a trader from Quetta city was kidnapped and released after 9 months, in her press conference she told, “One from the two key posting guys were involved in my abduction”. That was a clear gesture to Governor house and Chief Minister house. Currently, have covered a story about the abduction in Quetta, arranged by the political parties, civil societies, lawyers, doctors, students and the cute children from school, who were chanting against the government of the province, it’s ministers, law-enforcement agencies responsible of the abducting cases, one of the participant Olas Yar a university student explained the circumstances as, “If the interior minister of the province is openly announcing that some of the cabinet members are involved in the abduction cases, then who will be thinking of peace and justice”. Qalat a Baloch populated city is currently having four of the Hindos abducted, before them Kilash Narth Kohli a lawyer from Supreme court was abducted and was released after his family paid to the ferocious, inhuman and what more adjectives should I put here?…. So how can we demonstrate that International Community is putting Pakistan in the ranking countries that violate the rights of minorities? Recommend

    on the money zahra, A moment of introspection is required. it reminds me of the oft-quoted pastor Martin Niemöller‘s take on the inactivity of German intellectuals following the Nazi (read fascists) rise to power.

    *First they came for the communists (insert Ahmedis 1970s),
    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists (insert **liberals** in 1980s),
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews (hazaras, christians, hindus etc),
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

    Then they came for me (majority **Sunnis**)
    and there was no one left to speak out for me.*

    Something that happened 50 years ago doesn’t give you entitlement to discriminate against those unlucky enough to be born in a country that according to you is ‘being made for Muslims’.

    Why does it matter what you think happened in the past? What matters is these are citizens of Pakistan. The fact that they aren’t Muslim, and you are, is only because they were born in a Hindu family, and you weren’t. Ever though of that?

    Why do we leave out atheists/agnostics when we talk about minorities in pakistan? Atheists are the most persecuted minority in pakistan,atleast the theist minorities get to live as who they are,they have their organisations,spokespersons who get interviewed in media,no pakistani news channel would air the views of any atheist,wouldn’t invite any atheist to the studios for a talkshow etc. It’s high time media started including atheists when they talk of oppression and persecution faced by minorities in pakistan.Recommend

    Pakistan and Israel, two countries that came into existence as the same time, for the same reason: to escape persecution, bigotry, and to have a land of their own!

    @Saeed: “They face more prejudices and deprivations than any other minority in the world. Even in Hindustan, the Muslims are treated inhumanly. Look through the stats how many Muslims have been killed in countless religious and ethnic riots. ”

    Sure. Why don’t YOU look at the stats? 790 Muslim citizens died in India in riots started by Muslims (where 254 Hindu citizens also died. In the intervening 10 years there were NO communal riots. There was a response and revulsion to these riots not just by media but by politicians, and civil society as well. Those gulty – both Hindus and Muslims are being brought to justice. Recently in UP there have been riots where in a period of 75 days a total of 7 people died – 4 Muslims and 3 Hindus. (As far as Assm situation is considered there are no Hindu OR Muslim citizens involved. There are local Bodo tribals on one side who are animists and illegal Banglaeshi migrants on the other side who happen to be Muslims. In any case total number of deaths of Muslims in the last 10 years (whether ciizens or illegal migrants and regardless of whether the conflict was religious in nature or not) does not reach 3 digits.

    You are probably aware that Pakistanis are far more ikely to face prejudices in Saudi Arabia than UK or US and far less likely to get justice in Saudi Arabia than UK or US.

    Currently if you see who is mistreating Muslims, my stats tell me
    – thousands of Syrians are being killed by their own dictator
    – Shia mosques are being destroyed and Shias oppressed i Bahrain by their Sunni ruler. Pakistan’s rent-an-army provides soldiers for this purpose
    – Hundreds of Hazaras plus shias in Gilgit are identified and target killed
    – -Thuosands are target killed in Karachi each year.Recommend

    My Pakistani Nationalist Brother , that is usual to find that more Muslims are getting killed in Pakistan than the minorities because they only hold less than 2 % of Pakistan’s population. I think you wouldn’t demand any more clarification if you have knowledge on maths of ratio.

    But at least it is the civil right of those people (who you call minority there) to live in an environment in their own country , where they could get killed/tortured as a Pakistani ,, not for being members of minor community, Is this a lot to expect from the government to which they have been paying tax to insure security and life comforts along with basic needs assurance?Recommend
