Ideology is not some beliefs that you follow. ideology is the foundation on which any society stands if you take down the foundation of any society it automatically collapses.
Ideology not only helps you define the ethical and social norms but it unites the group of different segments of society. Ideology of Pakistan is “Islam” and “Two Nation theory” if you eliminate them the society will fall just like it did in 1971.
The only thing which is keeping the diverse society of Pakistan united is Islam otherwise it is not possible to keep such a diverse society intact. The first thing which laid the foundation of “Fall of Dhaka” was “Bangali Nationalism”. Later, over the years this idea laid the foundations for “Pushtun”, “Muhajir” and “Baloch” nationalism eventually starting armed separatist movements BLA, Pushtunistan etc. This happened due to diversion from the common ground which is the ideology of “Islam”.
“We are now all Pakistanis, not Balochis, Pathans, Sindhis, Bengalis, Punjabis and so on and as Pakistanis we must feel, behave and act, and we should be proud to be known as Pakistanis and nothing else.” said by Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah while replying to the Civic Address Presented by the Quetta Municipality,15 June, 1948.
The only way to create division is to disturb the unity based on common thought process. This is what was initiated during the late 60’s after the communist regime of USSR started backing communist parties in Pakistan creating an ideological division within Pakistan. This rift between social groups has deep impact not only on social fabric of the society but also on Politics, national security, and economy. This gave rise to political instability, chaos, and anarchy.
It was necessary to give background to help you put things into a context. Post 9/11 the global capitalist world order started influencing different parts of the world. Through the powerful media Western Liberal civilization was injected into the masses. A uniform Liberal world order was created but now this order is falling in Europe, India, Middle East and in different parts of the world. Far Right parties are coming in power Fundamentalists are new players.
Post 9/11 the agenda was quite clear as described by our mentor late DG ISI Lt General Hameed Gul to “Denuclearize” and “Deislamize” Pakistan.
People use to argue that it is just a conspiracy. Denuclearizing” still makes sense but why “Deislamizing”.
Now since you are aware of 5th generation warfare, hybrid and disinformation warfare connect this to the the case presented above.
The campaign launched in the name of “Aurat March” is nothing but another tool in that bigger agenda to create social unrest in Pakistan. Many would not agree but we have not presented our case yet. Before coming towards the March people need to understand all such movements were created in the name of rights. BLA in the name of Baloch rights, PTM in the name of Pushtun rights and lately the student march.
We all know that those movement were based on genuine demands, but their followers don’t know the real agenda behind them. The people running these movements are the brains behind all the mess. And all of them have one thing in common all them have same supporters.
– International Media (BBC, CNN)
– Local media giants (DAWN, Geo)
– NGO’s and rights groups (SAFMA)
– Anti-Pakistan elements: Altaf hussain, Hussain haqani, Ismail Gulalai, Marvi Sarmad, Manzoor Pashteen etc.
Aurat March “Unveiling the Real Agenda”
We will start from the famous controversial slogan “Mera Jism Meri Marzi” “My body my choice”.
If you ask them for the opinion they will say no this means this is our body and no one has the right to dictate us forcefully and this is against Acid attack, Forced marriages, Rape etc.
But the International “My body my choice” Movement is totally different from what the Aurat March supporters sell to the local audience. At start it was working on sexual exploitation, but it went International after prostitution and abortion was banned by different governments, especially in Brazil. Now it’s a worldwide “Pro Life” and “Prochoice” movement lead by Feminists.
Following are the objectives of International “My body my choice” Movement.
– Legalization of Abortion.
– Legalization of Prostitution and abolishing of Laws against prostitution.
– Legalization of Organ markets.
– Legalization of Drugs.
All of these are based on the idea of My Body My choice, Pro Choice advocacy groups consider it is right of a female to decide if she needs baby or not, it is her body and she can use in whatever way she can similarly drugs and organ market.
Now the question is if this movement is based on that international liberal idea that it is totally against the religious and cultural norms (ideology) of Pakistan and are unconstitutionally. If it is not than why using controversial slogan to damage own cause?
Similarly there are gender stereotyping everywhere in the world so do in Pakistan but fighting it on the basis of Gender itself creates stereotyping.( That’s why this group is silent of acid attacks, rape and stereotyping of male, because it only focuses on women). Apart from that what this movement is using specific cases of rape and acid attack and generalizing it over the whole society to build their case. And not only to build case in Pakistan but using that to get money for the NGO’s at the coast of image of Pakistan.
Did you know that according to official US government stats in 2018, the rate of rapes in the United States stood at 30.9 per 100,000 inhabitants? which means 1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime (14.8% completed, 2.8% attempted).
Every 73 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted and every 9 minutes, that victim is a child. Meanwhile, only 5 out of every 1,000 perpetrators will end up in prison.
But you will never hear about that why because no one give them dollar to talk about that.
We are not saying there is nothing wrong in Pakistan but we are equally concerned if not more but instead of empty slogans we need to work on practical solutions is there any debate going on that and the answer is no.
Just in case of rape it is worst crime in the world so let us start with capital punishment (death penalty) but wait a minute these are the very people who oppose that so who is defending the rapist? This is not because they are defending it but this is against the Liberal values what they are advocating for. But why can’t others advocate for their and especially Islamic values?
Why there is selective coverage and selective outrage? We are not interested in what Khalil did with Marvi but we would like to see the same outrage when the every people will talk about Marvi Sarmid, Gul bukhari and other bashing and abusing people on twitter. We will support them when they will talk about alleged Rapist, the CEO of Dawn news.
No one is against women rights and women empowerment but why we have selective media coverage and selective representatives the answer lies in the case we presented in the First part.
Just on 7th March different women right groups held multiple protests on women rights but did the media gave same amount of coverage to them? If it is about the rights why not.
Just for example Jamat e Islami women wing held convention on women rights with clear demands but how many articles Dawn news published on that? How many talk shows Geo aired on that? Similarly, civil right groups held protests in Gujranwala and Faisalabad. Why a group of 50 women gets more coverage than a convention of hundreds of women!!!!
