An Open Letter to All Pakistanis from Karachi

My Dear All Pakistanis, let me vow it clearly that I Love You All, I Love as much as you could love your dear one, as much you could love your city, village, country and native place. No matter which city, village or town you belong to, you are as much dare to me as much a fellow Karachiite is. Just recall when you or your relatives used to come to this city for earning bread or for living being, similarly people from this city and other cities used to come to your city, village or area to visit family, friends or just see the beautiful sights. Just imagine many of you might have relatives belonging to this city known as Karachi, many of you might have friends who have the same blood as you!

It is another fact, if you are not linked anyway with this city or its people one relation at least you have, it’s a city of your beloved country Pakistan, the people living here are your Muslim Brothers and Sisters, even if Non-Muslim are there they are your countryman. Just imagine, how you are tied with the fate of this city, unrest in this city causes unrest in the whole country, an political unrest or economical downfall is as much harmful for you as much for people in this city. Similarly your problems or miseries are relevant to people here, they feel the same pain if there is Earthquack in Azad Kashmir, Khayber Pakhtunkhuwa or Balochistan or if there are Floods in Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa, Punjab, Balochistan or Sindh. Didn’t you notice how people here come out and start working at once if there is any disaster in the country? Irrespective of the Political Affiliation, Ethnic Background, Linguistic Divide or Caste and Creed, they all come out, join hands together and work day and night for you, for your children, without any greed. Karachi alone contributes a major share not only in the country’s income, but also in any donation for the victims of any natural disaster.

But, when it comes to any problem in Karachi, everyone like to speak only, no one feel the responsibility to raise his/her voice against any social injustice or terrorist act, the step-mother like attitude of my countryman cannot be ignored. It not only hurts people in this city but also hurts the teaching of Holy Qur’aan. Instead of raising their voice against the Evil or in the favour of Suffering, people start giving political comments and targeting their political rivals. This situation will no longer be there if Karachi, the City of Lights is destroyed economically due to Extortion Mafia, Drugs Mafia, Land Mafia backed and supported by some Political/Religious groups, or its people continued be killed by criminals and terrorists.

Islam has taught us, we are like a human body, pain in any part of the body creates unrest for whole body, and similarly, if we think about the phrase of Allama Iqbal we can get a great lesson:

فرد قائم ربط ملّت سے ھے تنہا کچھ نہیں

مؤج ھے دریا میں اور پیرون دریا کچھ نہیں

This is a simple question from all my beloved country fellows, when Karachi and its people feel the pain on your miseries and come out to help you, don’t you feel pain when Karachi suffers terrorism, target killing and riots caused by a handful of criminals? Why doesn’t my countryman come out protesting on the injustice with Karachiites? Why this discrimination is there?

Should not we all put aside all the political or ethnic divides and get unite against all the Evil Forces which are as harmful for you as much for the people of Karachi?

منفعت ایک ھے اس قوم کی نقصان بھی ایک

ایک ھے سب کا نبی، دین بھی، ایمان بھی ایک

حرم پاک بھی، اللہ بھی، قرآن بھی ایک

کچھ بڑی بات تھی ھوتے جو مسلمان بھی ایک
