No Light In Abyss
Drigh Road is kind of small town in the biggest city of Asia which is known as Karachi. The history of this tiny little town is very extensive and spacious; from the beginning this area was well-known for Air base. Drigh Road situated near to PAF base Faisal, the oldest air base in Pakistan. It started out as RAF (Royal Air Force) Drigh Road, and has a very interesting past. This is the place where Indian Air Force was born, and Lawrence of Arabia served as an engine clerk. The first flight in the history of Indian aviation lifted off from Drigh Road in Karachi.
Early in 1927, among a draft of RAF airmen who arrived from the UK was an AC2 T E Shaw. In 1914, when he was 26 years old, he had been commissioned as an officer in the British Army, and after earning worldwide fame as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ for his expeditions against the Turks, had retired as a lieutenant colonel. Lawrence arrived in Karachi in January 1927 and was stationed at the RAF base at Drigh Road until April 1928. He was embarking upon a second career, as an ordinary airman recruit in the RAF. From his letters can be gained an authentic description of what Drigh Road was like at that time. He was assigned to the ERS (Engine Repair Shop) and wrote that although there was no hot water, the food was excellent and Karachi City was only 7 miles away. In the evenings he would go out to listen to the music of the camel bells along Drigh Road. In one letter ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ said in his one letter Drigh Road is a place where I found peace and evening brings a sweet and delicate fragrance.
With the termination of British rule on 14 August 1947, and the creation of India and Pakistan with their separate armed services, Drigh Road was handed over to the Royal Pakistan Air Force with effect from 30 October 1947.
This was the worst day for the Drigh Road that they handed over to Pakistan, though the establishment of Pakistan and India were based on 2 nation theory. Which was very clear that those area which belongs to Muslim popular they will be a part of Pakistan despite of India. Nevertheless Drigh Road was the 80% Christian popular area, gradually Muslims start putting their pressure on Christian society which was helping the society to be civilization in education and medical services.
Christian community always develops strong minds in the field of education. From the British era there was 2 big churches based in Drigh Road namely Methodist church and St. John Catholic Church. Both denominations build strong schools to educate the common people without watching their beliefs, they provide good and better education to every ethnicity group without they spreading the lesson of hate to small and innocent children.
Muslims learn abhorrence lesson through school books and madrasa’s (Islamic Quranic School). From last few decades Pakistan is going in Stone Age, where humanity doesn’t exist, but only barbarian. The Qaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah who was the founder of Pakistan, spoke in his golden fourteen points that their will be fully liberty in religiously, educationally, socially, economically and politically to all others beliefs instead of Muslims.
The founder of PPP (Pakistan People’s Party) Zulfikar Ali Bhutto won the election and became ruler party of Pakistan. Former president of Pakistan namely Zulfikar Ali Bhutto ordered in 1974-75, that every institution which is working in Pakistan taken by Government by force. It was just a beginning of Tsunami, even the whole syllabus of education system was changed.
In every subject book, there is a lot of hate for other religions and believes, every child learn from their childhood that Jews, Christians, Hindu and other religions are trying to finish the Islam. Allah makes Muslims superior than other beliefs, and there is competition in Muslimism and other nations.
Time passed and this seed of odium is multiplying like zombie virus, which makes the process of society developing slow and week.
Earlier days of Pakistan there was no religious frustration in Muslim culture until the 1973 the Dark Age was not yet come. In the tenure of PPP (Pakistan People’s Party) Pakistan became the first country who adopt the adjective “Islamic” to modify its republican status under it’s otherwise secular constitution. Despite this definition the country did not have a state religion until 1973, when a new constitution, more democratic and less secular, was adopted. Pakistan only uses the “Islamic” name on its passports, visas, and coins. Although Islamic Republic is specifically mentioned in the Constitution of 1973, all government documents are prepared under the name of the Government of Pakistan. The Constitution of Pakistan, part IX, article 227 says “All existing laws shall be brought in conformity with the Injunctions of Islam as laid down in the Quran and Sunnah, in this Part referred to as the Injunctions of Islam, and no law shall be enacted which is repugnant to such Injunctions.
In this phase, for the very first time, the Constitution of Pakistan gave definition of a MUSLIM which states: ‘Muslim’ means a person who believes in the unity and oneness of Allah, in the absolute and unqualified finality of the Prophethood of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad, and does not believe in, or recognize as a prophet or religious reformer, any person who claimed or claims to be a prophet, in any sense of the word or of any description whatsoever, after Muhammad.
On 26 December 1977, same political party namely PPP was the ruler party of Pakistan and the party leader Late. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto who was a kind of cringe person and wanted to please the Saudi king. Therefore Drigh Road Air Base re-named as ‘Faisal Air Base’ in honor of King Faisal II of Saudi Arabia.
This Islamic hatred virus day by day was growing in people’s brain, and Muslim community start building pressure on other minorities like Christians, Hindus, Sikh, Parsi, Ahmedi, Shiya and as well other religions.
A referendum about the Islamization program was held in 1984, with a reported 98.5% voting in favor. In legal terms (Islamic law being usually referred to as Sharia) the term is used to describe laws that define a level of crime classification. Murder, theft, and adultery these are minor crimes in its place of Sharia Law, known as blasphemy law.
It is often argued that, since Sharia is God’s law and Pakistan certain punishments for this crime, the punishment of blasphemy law is un change.
Time changed like season changed, though the humanity and politics became worse for the Drigh Road people. Christians promote education there but from last 2 decade many Muslim school and Madrassa build.
During the time period of 1994, in Drigh Road one Muslim terror group based in Natha Khan Goth, they threat the authorities of St. John School that they have to transfer this school among with the whole property to namely Husain. He was the party member of one of the political party in Pakistan, from God their plan temporarily failed or we can say postpone.
Throughout the normal days the main area of St. John Church and Christ Church was not busy at all. But during the Sunday church time or other divine prayer server many Muslim boys and they blocked the road to play Cricket that people can’t goes to churches. Even Drigh Road already have 2 big sports ground, Azam Ground and Union Ground.
Many time Church leaders tried to stop their activities but in other hands media start publishing propaganda news that they play loud music in there church which is not allow it’s Muslim country rather than many other small and big issue.
One hotter incident happens on 12th of March 2014, a young Muslim girl 13 to 14 year, namely Nida Akhter daughter of Akhter. Disappear from school, after wards school found the information that girl didn’t came in school.
When Akhter found information from school that his daughter didn’t came in school. Many Muslims attack on St. John School, the leading name is Fahim. Essentially he is ASI (Assistant Sub-Inspector of Police) and he is doing his services in Shahrah-e-Faisal. He provide Illegal weapons and ammunition, he lead other Muslim young and mature people. Other leading person who insulted the teachers and principal is famous by his title Lara.
From 11:00 of the 12/03/14 they take illegally control in school and threat the stuff members. Police and Ranger doesn’t wanted to protect St. John School cause they said this is the matter of Muslim and Christian, therefore we will not support Christians.
Some reliable sources explained that they even tried to contact news but no one wanted to take this news in public and expose the true face of Muslim hatred.
During the time while these Muslim militant without understanding and trying to resolving the issue they beated a one Christian lady Ruksana who is coordinator of school. The police officer ASI. Fahim pushed the mother of Nida, to filed a complain against school and principal. He also said until the girl will not bring us the girl we will burn this school and church.
And the other Muslims groups were busy to threat other Christians. Luckily Edhi center, Mithadar reported that they have founded one young girl.
The whole crowd of extremes Muslims became surprise when night 22:30 the S.P. (Superintendent Police) Ali Raza brought girl with him.
The whole crowd astonishes to see that S.P. though he was high authority, nevertheless he requested all the radical groups to please girl is back in her home she didn’t came school today cause someone else abduct her.
The truth is still hidden, who that girl abduct though her family every time drop her school. Secondly this was just a drama to destroy the Christian education center which is working before the establishment of Pakistan.
Yesterday dated 13/03/14 the board of catholic school and church sit to make action against them. But still those fanatic Muslims groups are intimidating them and fear of living in such situation is not only hard even it’s way difficult. Where Police and Ranger is not wanted to provide the civil rights to minorities.
It is quiet easy to wear the police uniform but accomplish the law is not easy. The religious leader of Muslims are absolutely confuse and living the place called black hole, where they do not dare to go forward nor there is any way to escape.
Is this same Drigh Road which was before of independence of Pakistan, 70% of Christian left the Drigh Road just because of life threats and fear from these Muslims. These elements are keep increasing.
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. And darkness cannot finish dark side.
