Happy Birthday, Mother – When will you accept me as your own?

Published: August 14, 2015

When will Pakistan return to the path that Jinnah set it on?

It was August 14, 1984. I was only two-years-old. My father decorated the veranda of our small house with lights and green buntings. My parents were excited, as were my elder brother and I. Though I was too young to remember, pictures of that day bring on a strong sensation of déjà vu.

Yet, and sadly, before the following Independence Day, we had to leave Pakistan. Persecution, which gained momentum under President Ziaul Haq, forced many Ahmadis to leave for safer lands. Many Ahmadis were killed and their businesses looted.  The state, unfortunately, abetted the religious extremists by promulgating the notorious anti-Ahmadi laws, and arrested scores of Ahmadis nationwide for ‘crimes’ such as reciting the Kalima (Islamic Creed) or reading the Holy Quran. Among the scores arrested for their faith, three were my maternal uncles.

Therefore, I spent my formative years in a small peaceful country in West Africa. Even there, August 14 remained an important part of our lives. My mother – despite her brothers’ ordeal – played patriotic songs and related stories of our founding fathers, particularly of Mr Jinnah and Mr Zafarullah Khan. The latter is, unfortunately, a forgotten hero in the very land he fought alongside Jinnah to create. It is hard to conceive how the man who drafted the Pakistan Resolution, represented the state at the United Nations as Pakistan’s first foreign minister, and is the only Pakistani to have presided over both the UN General Assembly and the International Court of Justice, is conveniently denied any significant mention in our Pakistan studies text books.

While growing up, I also learned about numerous other Pakistani Ahmadi heroes, including Dr Abdus Salam, General Iftikhar Janjua, Mirza Muzaffar Ahmad, General Akhtar Malik and General Abdul Ali Malik etc. I was always proud of the role my community played in creating, stabilising and strengthening Pakistan.

Then, when I was a young teenager, we decided to return to the motherland.

Even though I knew our freedoms were severely curtailed here, Pakistan was still the only place we called home.  I remember watching cricket matches with friends and family, getting heartbroken when Pakistan lost, and cheering every six that flew off Shahid Afridi’s bat. I enjoyed Pakistani television serials, fell in love with Lahore, and felt a deep sense of duty to my land of birth. Every Independence Day my elder brother and I decorated our house in Rabwah with a flag and buntings – much the same way my father would when I was a kid.

A building in Rabwah decorated on Pakistan’s Independence Day.

But with every passing year, the horrid state of persecution and violence increased. Extremist clerics continued to engage in vitriolic hate speech, with no public figure ready to take the risk to condemn the persecution of the Ahmadis, let alone speak for their rights. The media and public were not interested in our cause either.

Then, a series of specifically targeted attacks on Ahmadi physicians made me finally rethink my future plans, and I moved to America. Having been here for almost seven years, I still proudly identify as a Pakistani American. The word Pakistan continues to be an integral part of my identity – and it always will be.

It is August 14 again today. And as much as I am excited, I sense a strange longing deep down in my heart. When will I be able to return to Pakistan as a free citizen of the state? When will Pakistan return to the path that Jinnah set it on?

We know well that Jinnah’s struggle for Pakistan was aimed at restoring equal rights and representation, and eradicating the pain of social discrimination and economic deprivation felt by a minority – the Muslims in United India. How did it happen then that the same country that was established to protect the rights of one minority now has stringent laws denying them to another?

And despite all of this, what an exemplary display of loyalty that Pakistan’s Ahmadis consistently speak of coexistence, not separation. They continue to seek tolerance, not division. They continue to be goodwill ambassadors for the country they helped found. You might see them criticise policies that are counter to Jinnah’s vision of the country, but you won’t ever see them hating Pakistan.

Why? Because Pakistan is our mother too. And how do you hate your own mother, even when she treats you bad?

So while I am celebrating my mother’s birthday with enthusiasm as usual, true elation will be the day my mother smiles back at me. I am longing for that day. It will be the day when you, my brothers, stand up to accept me as your equal under law. It will be the day when I will be able to go back home without the fear of being arrested or attacked for reading the Holy Quran, saying my prayer or identifying as I chose to. It will be the day when the discriminatory second amendment and anti-Ahmadi laws will cease to exist, except only as a dark chapter in books of history.

Happy Birthday Mother! Pakistan Zindabad!

    Go back to the root problem. Your family had a mother named India. You ignored her love, you bad mouthed her, kicked her out in a brutal manner and got yourself a new mother. The new mother has other children she loves more; can’t help it. She does not love you. Your step brothers and step sisters do not love you.
    You can keep whining about your love, but she does not want you. You are a stalker to her!

    It’s an unfortunate and nonsensical state of human mind that we have to love the country we are born in, despite the fact how messed up and a hell it is. Patriotism itself is absurd and those who adhere to it give up their personal sense of integrity and fall to their primitive psychological weakness of the need for belonging. Home is where you get to live in peace. Home is where you can prosper. Home is where you can guarantee a good future. And clearly Pakistan doesn’t fall under that definition of home for you. Humans have been migrating all over the world and finding new homes throughout the history. It’s good that you have done the same. Live long and prosper dear brother! And never look back at Pakistan because it is on a rapid downward spiral towards its own demise and it’s only a matter of time before it explodes. Better for you not to find yourself in that explosion.Recommend

    “And despite all of this, what an exemplary display of loyalty that Pakistan’s Ahmadis consistently speak of coexistence, not separation. They continue to seek tolerance, not division.”

    Well, the Ahmadis were not always as peace-loving as the author seems to portray. They were at the forefront of the “we can’t live with Hindus” movement for the partition. They were also at the front-line as active participants in the massacre of Hindus and Sikhs.

    It is ironic that in the India that Ahmadis said they couldn’t livein, the remaining Ahmadis, Shia, Ismailis etc. are practicing their faith without fear.

    These sects consider the Prophet Mohammad[PBUH] as the Seal.
    Yet they are considered non Muslims and their lives are hell. 24/7
    To the majority Sunni Wahabis of the Land of the Pure, this is a
    non issue.

    Author is right and historical facts back up his claims of Ahmadis being peaceful and seeking “co-existence and not separation”. Your assertions are simply a figment of your imagination.
    I would ask the Muslims in India if they are allowed to practice their faith without fear. Historical facts do not support your assertions.

  • Striver

    Agreed. Most Pakistanis don’t even ask if you are Shia, Sunni etc. They just get on with each other. The reality is most families have relatives of mixed sects. AND YES, some families have Ahmadi relatives. It is not a big deal for most Pakistani. But for the Indians brought up anti-Pakistan diet this is hard to accept emotionally,Recommend

    False. The founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community wrote a whole book on Hindu-Muslim coexistence. Read it online. Its called ‘The Message of Peace.’ No Ahmadi ever said they can’t live with Hindus.

    //They were also at the front-line as active participants in the massacre of Hindus and Sikhs.//

    Hindus and any other religious/sectarian minority?
    They do?Recommend

  • Bibloo

    Pretty sure their so called ‘ narrative ‘ was studied by Muslim
    scholars and non Muslim experts on Islam. And the consensus
    is that the Prophet [PBUH] is not considered the seal by the Ahmadis
    A living breathing entity is currently presiding as prophet. Now all these scholars the world over are WRONG and the Ahmadi interpretation
    is right center, correct one? Give it s rest. You will never convince
    the Muslims otherwise. Ahmadis are a sect of Islam. Period.
    An example would be the Alahwite sect of Syria or the Druze sect.
    They claim to be Muslim,…but are not regarded as Muslims. by Muslims.Recommend

    Lie upon lie upon lie! Ever heard about the 2 nation theory?. Ahmadis fought for the minority Muslims of the subcontinent. Ahmadis knew very well whats gonna happen to them in Pakistan, Yet they went along with the idea of Jinnah for a separate state.

    It is not called Karma, it is called Sacrifice.Recommend

  • http://kashifmd.com/ Kashif Chaudhry

    Thats the problem right there. You have no clue about Ahmadiyya Islam. Feel free to ask your Mullahs to debate Ahmadi Muslims, rather than boycott and persecute them for their beliefs.

    When Muslim League went on a rampage against minority Hindus in Calcutta during Ramzan 1946, there is no evidence Ahmadis obstained from the violence. 5000 Hindus died in Naokali riots(massacre more than riots).

    Same with Partition. There is no proof that Ahmadis stayed out of anti-Sikh, anti-Hindu violence.

    Muslim League released a Direct Action manifesto, which clearly calls for “Jehad”. Jehad against whom? British? But, Direct Action day riots saw Hindus being butchered. There is no evidence Ahmadis opted out of this declaration.

    The creature called hate saw its main target – Hindus, Sikhs – reduced to 1% of the population. This creature needed another target. So it turned on the very people which fed it – Ahmadis first, nowadays it is targetting the Shias.

    As the Author says with glee, Ahmadis were equally involved in all the pre-Partition activities of Muslim League. So, the commentor is right.
    Spot on, in fact.Recommend

  • http://peddarowdy.wordpress.com/ Anoop

    I don’t think you have studied History very well. Pakistan would never have been formed had Nehru not promised to abolish Feudalism and promised Land Reforms. See the Hindu Feudals had no choice, they would lose their land. But, Muslim Feudals(there were a LOT), had other options.

    Jinnah’s campaign wasn’t going too well, till Feudals joined him. They joined after Jinnah promised he will not initiate Land Reforms. Feudals had a party of their own – Unionist Party.

    Wikipedia is not completely accurate, but some facts are correct.


    Till date there have been no Land Reforms in Pakistan. While Nehru delivered what he promised when he initiated first wave of Land Reforms in 1951. Liaquat himself was from a Feudal family. I don’t have to tell you how many of the current and past Politicians are from Feudal Families. Modi, on the other hand, is the son of a poor man, who used to sell Tea for a living. Contrasting trajectories, don’t you think?

    Islam was never in danger in India. In fact, Hinduism was. Muslims would have formed about 37% of India’s population against 13% today. By 2050, it would grow to near or even more than 50%! Riots would have destroyed India had Partition not happened. Muslims in the process were divided into 3 parts. Muslims are more educated and less prone to violence in India today. Ahmadis, Shias and Sunnis are all together, with a united front against Hindus, which would have happened had India not been partitioned.

    Partition was a God-send. I thank Jinnah for his short-sighted policies..Recommend

    Have no burning desire to hold forth with my ‘Mullah’
    There isn’t one. Besides, a Muslim does not need a

    total ignorant/illiterate may need the services of a paid mullah.
    But then, he is already lost. Because his/her Islam is flavored
    with middleman’s interpretation. Read the Quran and the Hadees and make your beliefs. Majority, anywhere, simply follow what they were taught or told or explained in their formative childhood years. Whether it was toxic drivel or a
    pacifist message of peace Do not let a “mullah’ come into your Islam. That would be sacrilegious.
