[center]<b><span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>THINKING ALOUD : History is now history</span></b> <!--emo&:flush--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Flush.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='Flush.gif' /><!--endemo-->[/center]

<b>Although all nations take liberties with history, the popular Pakistani account of events as summarised above is unique. As a subject of study, history is close to extinction

The popular Pakistani mishmash of history is a combination of narcissism and victimitude, aided by massive distortions. It reads somewhat as follows :</b>

Before the advent of Islam people lived miserable lives in ignorance and poverty. Fighting, banditry, rape, killing and revenge-killing were common, new-born girls were buried alive and everywhere it was the law of the jungle.

Islam completely transformed society, everyone lived happily and women got full rights. Even slaves were happy. Muslims ruled the world and made many great scientific discoveries. Famous Western scientists actually copied many things from Muslims.

After our golden period, something happened, somehow we lost our way. Our clever and devious enemies not only succeeded in seizing power from us, but they also copied our perfect socio-economic model to create just and prosperous societies in their own countries.

The Christian, Jewish and Hindu enemies of Islam succeeded in destroying, first, Muslim Spain, then the Mughal Empire and, finally, the Ottoman Caliphate, which were perfect examples of good government where everyone, even Hindus, enjoyed full rights and lived happily.

The Christian powers established a Jewish state, Israel, over a large part of Arab land called Falasteen. Millions of Jews now live there, on land seized from the Muslims. Some of the Muslim countries have oil, but Western companies, guarded by American troops, take all the oil from the Muslims. Of course, this is possible because some Muslim leaders are not good, they are agents of America and Israel.

In the Indo-Pakistan subcontinent, the mighty Mughal Empire made great contributions to the world, such as Taj Mahal, Red Fort and Fatehpur Sikri. But the British and the Hindu leaders conspired to deprive us of everything, including education. However, under the brilliant leadership of the Quaid-i-Azam, we succeeded in achieving a homeland for the Muslims of the subcontinent.

Of course, Pakistan was much smaller than was our due. For example, we did not get Kashmir, Hyderabad and Junagarh. What is worse, Punjab was partitioned. We were also deprived of a land corridor to connect East and West Pakistan.

After independence, we failed to live up to the expectations of our great leader, deviated from the path of Islam and began to argue and fight among ourselves. In contrast, the Hindus across the border united (“aik platfarm per jamaa ho gai”) with the purpose of destroying our “mumlakat-e-khudadad” (god-given country).

We did make some mistakes because of our inexperience. But it was hard to not to, when the entire world, Christians, Jews and Communists alike, everyone except China, were supporting Hindu India and constantly conspiring against our Islamic country.

In 1965, the enemy attacked Pakistan without a declaration of war, under the cover of darkness. Our valiant soldiers supported by our brave people, with the blessings of Allah, not only repulsed the enemy but also taught him a lesson which he will never forget.

India begged for a ceasefire and, because of international pressure, President Ayub Khan made the mistake of signing the Tashkent Declaration. Because of heavy American and Russian pressure, he was forced to return large areas of India which our courageous troops had occupied.

Our air force shot down hundreds of enemy planes during the war. As a result, the whole world recognised that Pakistani air force pilots are the best in the world. And the same is true of Pakistani commandoes. American President Reagan once said that if he could have Pakistani pilots and commandos, he could control the whole world. Our PIA pilots are also famous in many countries.

Our great Foreign Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto resigned in protest against the Tashkent Declaration and threatened to disclose its secrets. Indian Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri died from the shock of India’s defeat. Some say he got a heart attack from joy, because he unexpectedly regained at the negotiating table what his army had lost on the battlefield. The US was Pakistan’s ally, but it secretly supported India during the war.

Being defeated on the battlefield, the wily Hindu leaders of Bharat now devised a new strategy. They began to use the Hindus of East Pakistan as well as some misguided Muslims led by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman for their nefarious design to break-up Pakistan. Actually, there was also a CIA plan to separate East Pakistan from Pakistan because of the latter’s friendship with China.

Anyway, in 1971, supported by both America and Russia, Indian troops again invaded our beloved country. Our troops again put up a heroic fight in both East and West Pakistan, but they were outnumbered. In East Pakistan, the enemy was supported by the Mukti Bahini, comprising East Pakistani Hindus and some misguided Bengali Muslims. Some East Pakistanis we trusted also leaked our defence secrets to the Indians. Some people say that if Bhutto had not torn the Polish Resolution in the UN Security Council because he wanted to be President of (West) Pakistan, East Pakistan could have been saved.

But, thank God, we are now stronger than before. We even have the atom bum. Our brothers and sisters in Bangladesh are sorry for what they did and many of them would like to rejoin Pakistan, because it is a nuclear power.

We and our Afghan brothers defeated the Russian army in Afghanistan and destroyed the Soviet superpower. Some people say that if President Zia-ul Haq had not been killed by the CIA, he would also have liberated Kashmir. Afghanistan under the Taliban government was a great Islamic country, making progress in every field.

Under Saddam Hussain, Iraq was a powerful Muslim country and not afraid of America. Saddam was a great friend of the Falasteeni people and challenged Israel. He had a strong army. But when the Americans attacked, he ordered his troops not to fight. Some people say that he was an American agent.

Afraid of Muslim unity and power, the enemies of Islam hatched this great conspiracy called 9/11. Before they destroyed the World Trade Centre, they warned all the Jews not to go to work that day. Everyone knows that not a single Jew died on 9/11. Still they blamed it on Muslims and used it as a pretext to destroy the Islamic government of Afghanistan and occupy Iraq. Pakistan is next on their list. So is Iran, because it is becoming a strong Muslim country.

But, again, unlike the Christians, Hindus and Jews, Muslims unfortunately are unable to unite on one platform. We are divided into countries and nations and within countries we are divided into groups and parties. Actually, there is a hadith that Muslims will be divided into 73 sects. It is sad but true.

<b>Although all nations take liberties with history, the popular Pakistani account of events as summarized above is unique. <span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>And Pakistan must be the only country in the world where history itself is in danger of becoming history. As a subject of study, history is close to extinction.</span> <!--emo&Confusedtupid--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/pakee.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='pakee.gif' /><!--endemo-->

Even college graduates may not know that there is such a subject as history, for it has virtually been expelled from schools and colleges. <span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>Instead, there is a compulsory subject called ‘Pakistan Studies’, a hodgepodge of Muslim history, Islam, civics, folklore, mythology and hagiography.</span></b>
