To Be Or Not To Be – A Case Study of Pakistani Minorities

I am living in Pakistan. I am a Pakistani Minority.

To be or not to be - a case Study of Pakistani Minorities

To Be Or Not To Be – A Case Study of Pakistani Minorities:

I am Yusuf Yuhana, a former Pakistani cricketer. Approximately seven million people are belonging to various minorities living in Pakistan. Pakistan, An Islamic Republic, is one of the states that has officially protected my rights to be a religious minority. Why? It is simple. I am a minority in Pakistan.

Why Pakistan?

Laws have been implemented for me. Constitutional Amendments have been drafted for me. After the heart and soul of my nation, every citizen is gathered under the flag of Pakistan. A country reeling to defend and define its identity allowed me to live with it and follow my beliefs as a proud Pakistani citizen. Under article 36 in 1956, the parliament of Pakistan passed a law that secured my rights.

You were given a unique story. Unlike you, I am a man who believes that the rights of minorities have been protected in Pakistan. They have always been treated equally. No one asked me about my religion. You might be wondering why this is the case. It is because I am not being discriminated against here. It does not matter what religion I follow. It does not hold any substantial grounds that I am a Pakistani minority. I am dealt with like a majority.

I am living in Pakistan. I am a Pakistani Minority.

There Are A Lot of Misconceptions:

You might take notice of the effects of yesterday. As attacks on me unleashed their wrath, television networks got the position of killing all wrong. What I call a church, they insisted on calling a place of worship. Terrorists are not discriminating against us as Christian, Hindu, Sikhs, Ahmadi or Muslim. They are killing us as Pakistani.

It is not the killing of non-Muslims in Pakistan. Instead, it is a war against terrorism. Every Pakistani is suffering, sacrificing, bearing violence, losing their loved ones, and offering their lives to save the country. We got Pakistan after such a tiring struggle. It is all right, though; It is not their fault. However, I am used to the extraordinary act. Finally, I am a Pakistani minority, and I am fighting against terrorism along with my nation.

Somehow, I am Still Discriminated:

I wish things were different. I wish we were like you. I wish we were ISIS members, ISIL, Al Qaida, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ), Jamaat-ul-Fuqra. If I were any of those, I would have been named a Shaheed in the news today. My family would have been respected as if you appreciate your martyred. Perhaps, they would have written it on my gravestone as you have done for your loved ones.

However, all this does not matter. It is what will come after death that matters. In my case, I am fighting against terrorism. I am a proud Pakistani minority. Like me, countless people from my side struggle hard in every field to make their name and make Pakistani a proud nation. We want to make Pakistan a brawl nation around the globe.

Many People of Minorities Have Been Working For Pakistan:

To Be Or Not To Be – A Case Study of Pakistani Minorities: People have worked tirelessly to build Pakistan since my motherland’s creation.

  • Joginder Lal Mandath (First Law Minister),
  • Zafar Ullah Khan Jamali (Successful Foreign Minister),
  • Jagdesh Chand Anand (Film Producer),
  • Group Captain Cecil Chaudhry (Pakistan Army, Sitara-e-Jurat),
  • Norma Fernande (Teacher, Tamgha-i-Imtiaz),

  • Sonia Azmat (First Pakistani Weight Lifter Woman),
  • Justice Rana Bhagwan Das (Chief Justice of Pakistan) and many other names work in their corresponding fields to transform our Quaid’s dream into reality.

There Are So Many Examples of Undiscriminated Terrorism in Pakistan:

A progressing Pakistan, a safe place to live so that everybody can enjoying equal rights. I also wish my opponents had chosen a day other than 22 September 2013 when 127 people were killed and over 250 injured in the twin suicide bomb attack at All Saints Church. It is not all.

According to official government reports of 2016, at least fifteen 15 people were killed, and several were injured after the bomb exploded near a polio centre of Quetta. Around 20 people were killed, and 60 were wounded after shooters open fire at Bacha Khan University. 9 people were killed when a suicide bomber hit a Frontier Corps (FC) vehicle in Quetta.

Many other attacks have occurred without discriminating religion, region, sex, age, and cast. They are killing the innocent people of Pakistan. For them, I am also facing this violence. I am living in Pakistan. I am a Pakistani Minority.16 December 2014 was a day to remember for you. After all, it was abounding two decades ago that this tree was planted in the land of my country.

We had invented the weapon to counter all guns. Our detractors were scared, and our enemies are terrified. For causing the incident to dampen, we are reliving that instant of pride. I am sorry. Please accept my condolences. However, I do not have to respond to you. I have other things to do. Why waste your time with me? After all, I am a Pakistani Minority.
