SRINAGAR: Ameer Muslim Deeni Mahaz (MDM) Dr Muhammad Qasim on Saturday said the anti-Pakistan stance of people, “no matter how much pious Muslims and pro-freedom they are”, leaves them in the pro-India camp while describing Sheikh Abdullah as a “glaring example of this fact”.
“To see Pakistan only (through) the prism of Kashmir issue is a selfish approach,” Qasim said in a statement. “World is akin to this reality that Pakistan is the only stumbling block to the Indian ideological and military hegemony.”
He said Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan have “practically accepted Indian political supremacy”. “We request the Muslims of Jammu and Kashmir to understand the importance and place of Pakistan in context of Hindu history, culture and the deep seated hegemonic vision of Indian rulers,” he said.
The MDM chief said the integrity, development, and strength of Pakistan is of utmost importance in checking the growth of Bharat Varsha (the land of Bharat) and Arya Varsha (the land of noble) in the subcontinent.
He said the 5000-year-old Hindu history, culture and Chanakiyan political idea of Mandala, which he has put forth in Arthshastra, describes the policy of India’s relationship with its neighbours and the understanding of this policy in its correct realm, helps one in fathoming the importance of Pakistan in the subcontinent.
Qasim said Pakistan has been created in the name of Islam in Hindu heartland and its constitution, through objective resolutions, has given Islam a constitutional and political supremacy in the country.
“It has been settled once for all that there will be no legislation in Pakistan that is repugnant to Qur’an and Sunnah. But the rulers of Pakistan till date have failed to implement this constitution in the country. The anti-Islamic steps of the rulers and their tyranny cannot change the ideological and constitutional foundations of Pakistan,” he said.
“Therefore those who call Pakistan a secular country seem to be ignorant about the ideology and constitution of Pakistan,” Qasim said.
