Constitution – An Essential Element to Run the State Affairs

Constitution - An Essential Element to Run the State Affairs

Rules are a crucial element to form a healthy community. Each of the states has its own rules for the country or region. These rules are often formed under the influence of religion some of them based on ancient principles that do not even address the issues of the contemporary world. Fortunately, it is not a case for all countries.

Islam originated in the 5th century with the arrival of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who come with a Holy book which is called Quran Majeed. The book provides rudimentary knowledge about everything but does not address each of the dimensions completely. Therefore, one needs a set of references to perform any task such as prayer. Here comes Hadith which tells method and rules to perform a prayer. Unfortunately, the whole of the ummah does not agree on the so-called rules. Sectarianism is the major issue Muslims are facing these days. Even nations are fighting others and killing hundreds of thousands, only because of religious supremacy.

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan, as the name speaks for itself. Pakistan is an Islamic country where most of the rules are made by Muslims. It doesn’t mean, Pakistan is not human-friendly for minorities. It is a secular state as the founder of Pakistan said, “so that the life, property and religious beliefs of its subjects are fully protected by the state”. The Prime Minister of Pakistan accomplished the vision of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah by opening the Kartarpur Corridor on November 9, 2019.

Further, Jinnah spoke in his speech,

“In any case, Pakistan is not going to be a theocratic State — to be ruled by priests with a divine mission. We have many non-Muslims — Hindus, Christians, and Parsis — but they are all Pakistanis. They will enjoy the same rights and privileges as any other citizens and will play their rightful part in the affairs of Pakistan”

Pakistan only Nuclear Power Islamic State that has much influence on Muslim Umma. Unfortunately, delay in the constitution-making lead to chaos. It is because, the lack of cooperation between the administrative personal, sectarian differences, and immediate death of the founder of the state.

Constitution of Pakistan

Roughly, there is two million pending case in Pakistan. There are thousands of people who are rotting the dark dungeons and torture cells waiting for a trial. One can say, in 1947 Great Britain left the Indian Subcontinent, but slavery didn’t abolish altogether. The elite takes that place. Bilal (Ph.D. Scholar) spoke in one conversation,

“during the formation of Constitution of 1973, the Ahmadis were declared non-Muslims. The Shia (Ahle Tashi) would follow the same fate if the Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was not himself Ahle Tashi.”

Justice is very expensive in Pakistan; it is out of the reach of common citizens. Here, Judges often fear to speak of religious matters. Most of the case is often infinitely delayed. There are thousands of people behind the bar for years waiting for their trial.

Leader of Muslim Ummah in the Middle East, Kingdoms Saudi Arabia also does not have a human-friendly constitution. KSA has one of the highest execution rates in the world. During 2018, Arabia executed a couple from Pakistan whose trial was not held in the international language. How one can prove the false allegation laid against him if one is not familiar with the language?

To encapsulate, the constitution is the most element to run state affairs. It is one of the core components to form a human-friendly community.

India is Not a Secular State, How?

Indian Flag

India, the home of 1.3 billion peoples; this is the home of many different nations that are living in the Indian sub-continent since before Christ. Now the case is different, the Hindus are making efforts from head to toe to perish the minorities. Many events are gigantic evidence that Hindustan is for Hindus. India is not a secular state. The fascist PM, Narendra Modi, is perishing the rights of the Muslim population in India.

The Modi tried to perish the innocent Muslims in Kashmir by abrogating the special status of the princely state on August 5th this year. It’s been two and a half months the innocent Kashmiris are barred into Jails and the communication services are jammed. It is the extreme level of humanitarian crisis; the Muslims are the main target of this genocide.

Babri Masjid is one of the other favoritisms to the Hindu community. The case dates to 1992 when the Holy place of Muslims was perished by Hindus and many causalities occurred. The case registered into the apex court. The case remains being postponed for 30 years. In November this year, the Court announced the verdict which spoke in the favor of Hindus.

To encapsulate, in India every community is minority except Hindus and the rights of minorities are denied. It is the era of the 21st century the International community should make some effort to establish peace; law and order and bring justice to the continent.
