The land where Pakistan is situated today had been a seat for the world’s leading Civilizations from the time immemorial. The legacy of our predecessors at the time of our independence, on August 14, 1947, came to us as a treasure which may be called as Pakistan’s national heritage. The Founder of Pakistan was a secular educated man, who has a team of secular, Christians, hindus, muslims, Qadyani, Sikhs, Atheists etc Who fought for the oppressed minorities in the sub-continent. Pakistan is not for a religion Its only Pakistan, which was made for the oppressed minorities in Hindustan to live freely. Pakistan means not “la ilaha ill Allah” which mostly muslims of Pakistan spread all over the world. The name Pakistan means “The Land of the Pure”, not the Land of a religion or the land for religious hate.
Pakistan was not made as a Muslim country, it was made a secular country, and it stayed like that way for a while until the bitter enemies of Pakistan, i.e. the mullahs (Extremists muslims) got some say in politics. These mullahs were empowered and still being empowered by the Islamic world (50 Muslim majority Countries in World). They are trying to implement sharia law in Pakistan since 3 decades. What the world do not know about Pakistan, That Pakistan has lost 70,000 lives in terrorism. There are more than 2.8 millions of Christians, and people of 15 religions are living in Pakistan. The world start to see what Mulahs want to show them a country of extremists muslims, a country who is not modern, a country who is not open for tourists. Why this image being promoted because extremists muslims want to control Pakistan. While Pakistan is a diverse country. Pakistani people welcome other nations, unfortunately the neighbor countries all are the muslim countries who first conquered Sindh as a fort of Islam and Now these muslim countries call Pakistan a fort of islam and use Pakistan for terrorism and playing with this generation.
On 16 December 2014, six gunmen affiliated with the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) conducted a terrorist attack on the Army Public School. The militants, all of whom were foreign nationals, included one Chechen, three Arabs and two Afghans. They entered the school and opened fire on school staff and children, killing 149 people including 132 schoolchildren, ranging between eight and eighteen years of age making it the world’s fourth deadliest school massacre. After 9/11 incident in USA, Al-Qaeda members in the mountainous area of Waziristan on the Afghan border tried to control over Pakistan. The town is the administrative centre of the northern half of Waziristan, a lawless region once controlled by jihadists that Barack Obama called “the most dangerous place in the world”. But Pakistan’s army, which fought a 22-month campaign from 2014 to evict militants from North Waziristan, is trying to transform the town from a byword for extremism into a showcase of the stability to which the generals say the country is returning. The Pakistani army lost nearly 500 men in the fighting. About 3,400 militants were killed; many more fled across the border to Afghanistan. But in this all past years, they have opened many religious schools across Pakistan and tried to destroy the youth of Pakistan. They used teenagers as sleeping cells for suicide blasts and for the terrorism in the world. It gave Pakistan a bad name, a secular country became a islamic country, and from a islamic country it being known as a terrorists country. While there are millions of secular people, who love and serve humanity.
Speech of Quaid-e-Azam (Founder of Pakistan)
Pakistan was a democratic state, in 1977 after the government of “Zia Ul Haq” it became a Islamic country. The Supreme court of Pakistan was established in 1956, later the muslim Politicians made the Sharia court in 1980. Zia-ul-Haq brings such judicial policies “blasphemy laws” that causes for non-muslims as a sword which always hang on them. Zia- ul-Haq was a dictator, who built such forces like “Taliban” and destroyed the democratic rule. We have lost 70,000 lives because of terrorism. Arab brought their religious culture into our land, the culture of young girls (6-9 Years old) marriages, killing for religion and belief differences, slavery to women and children. We are fighting for Our country, for the freedom of a human, what Our Land belongs to. Pakistan does not belong to Islam, Pakistan’s origin belongs to a very old civilized heritage of the world.
Heritage of Pakistan
The Cultural Heritage of Pakistan is spread over the centuries, starting from pre-historic times to the present day and which may be summarized in the following periods:
1) Indus Civilization
2) Gandhara Civilization
3) Islamic Period
4) Sikh Period
5) British Period
6) Post independence Period
The Indus Valley Civilization (3300–1300 BCE) is also known as the Harrappan Civilization, after Harrappa, the first of its sites to be excavated in the 1920s, in what was then the Punjab province of British India, and now is Pakistan. Indus “is one of three in the ‘Ancient East’ that, along with Mesopotamia and Pharonic Egypt was a cradle of early civilization in the Old World,” and of the three, the most widespread.
Inhabitants of the ancient Indus river valley developed new techniques in handicraft (carnelian products, seal carving) and metallurgy (copper, bronze, lead, and tin). The Indus cities are noted for their urban planning, baked brick houses, elaborate drainage systems, water supply systems, and clusters of large non-residential buildings. The discovery of Harappa, and soon afterwards Mohenjo-Daro, was the culmination of work beginning in 1861 with the founding of the Archaeological Survey of India in the British Raj.
Taxila is 40 kms away from Islamabad the capital city of Pakistan, was once the seat of Oriental civilization. In 6th century B.C, It was first talked about as a satrapy of the Archemenian Empire. It was attacked by a communist Alexander the Great (Sikandar-e-Azam) & passed along to other monarch until finally he reached the hands of a Hindu Samrat “Ashoka”, who gave the shape of the city into a learning and cultural centre.
Arabs, as traders entered the sub-continent within a two years after their conversion to Islam. The Muslim traders played a very significant role in preaching Islam in the subcontinent, as Hitti remarks that it has passed through three distinct stages “originally a religion, Islam later became a state and finally a culture”.
The Arab Muslims conquered Sindh in the seventh century A.D. Mohammad bin Qasim, the conqueror of Sindh made Sindh Dar-ul-islam and based his policy on the Sharia; the laws of Islam. The majority of converts who entered the fold of Islam belonged to a lower caste of Hindus. Hindus did not know about Christianity and when they saw that Islam allow marriages which Hinduism had denied, then they started to convert to Islam. Arab Islamic activities also played a significant role in the large scale conversion of Hindus.
According to Historians Elliot and Dowson in their book ‘the history of Indians as told by their historians’, the first ship bearing Muslim travelers was seen on the Indian coast as early as 630 AD. H.G. Rawlinson, in his book: Ancient and Medieval History of India y J. Sturrock claims that the first Arab Muslims settled on the Indian coast in the last part of the 7th century AD. The Arab merchants and traders became the carriers of the new religion and they propagated it wherever they went.
Bab-ul-Islam & Sub-Continent
The invasion of Muhammad bin Qasim ushered the way for the spread of Islam in sub-continent in Sindh (Pakistan) and Kabul (Afghanistan). To say that the invasions were reasons of the spreading of Islam is absolutely wrong because if it so then why Halaku khan could not succeed in spreading Buddhism anywhere in the World? Islam has 73 sects, most of the Islamic sects allow males to have 4 marriages, the tradition of “Mut’a” (Temporary marriages), some sects of Islam allow females to have 8 temporary marriages, and some sects allow marriages between a brother and a sister. Islam also spread because of sufisim, in the Subcontinent the Sufis made untiring selfless and incessant struggle for the spread, growth and evolution of Islam. The spread of Islam stems from the invasion of Muhammad Bin Qasim in the Subcontinent, but roots of Sufism took shape and became an institution in the 12th and 13th century. The two great pioneers were Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani and Hazrat Shahabuddin Suharawardy. Four branches of Sufism, namely Qadriya, Chishtiya, Suharawardya and Naqshahbandya were introduced in the Subcontinent and can be traced to the time when the first Sufi, Muhammad Alfi, came to the Subcontinent. It was their affection, sympathy, fraternity and unlimited philanthropist actions that won the hearts of people.
Ẓahīr-ud-Dīn Muhammad Babur was a conqueror born in Andijan “Timurid Empire (present-day Uzbekistan)”, who was following a series of setbacks, finally succeeded in laying the basis for the Mughal dynasty in the Indian subcontinent and became the first Mughal emperor. Babur was the eldest son of Umar Sheikh Mirza and had 9 wives and hundreds of slave women. He ascended the throne of Fergana in 1495 at the age of twelve and faced rebellion from his own relatives. He conquered Samarkand two years later, only to lose the city of Fergana soon after. In his attempt to reconquer Fergana, he lost control of Samarkand. In 1501, his attempt to recapture both cities went in vain as he was defeated by Muhammad Shaybani Khan. In 1504, he conquered Kabul, which was under the rule of the infant heir of Ulugh Begh. Babur formed a partnership with Safavid ruler Ismail I and reconquered parts of central Asia, including Samarkand, only to again lose it and the other newly conquered lands to the Uzbeks.
After losing Samarkand for the third time, Babur turned his attention to creating his empire in north India. At that time northern Indian Subcontinent was ruled by Ibrahim Lodi of the Afghan. In 1524, Daulat Khan Lodi, a rebel of the Lodhi dynasty, invited Babur to overthrow Ibrahim and become ruler. Babur defeated Ibrahim Lodi at the First Battle of Panipat in 1526 and founded the Mughal empire. The instability of the empire became evident under his son, Humayun, who was driven out of India and into Persia by rebels. The restoration of Mughal rule began after Humayun’s triumphant return from Persia in 1555, but he died from a fatal accident shortly afterwards.
Humayun’s son, Akbar, succeeded to the throne under a regent, Bairam Khan, who helped consolidate the Mughal Empire in India. To unify the vast Mughal state, Akbar established a centralised system of administration throughout his empire and adopted a policy of conciliating conquered rulers through marriage and diplomacy. To preserve peace and order in a religiously and culturally diverse empire, he adopted policies that won him the support of his non-Muslim subjects. He was fond of literature, and created a library of over 24,000 volumes written in Sanskrit, Hindustani, Persian, Greek, Latin, Arabic and Kashmiri, staffed by many scholars, translators, artists, calligraphers, scribes, bookbinders and readers. Holy men of many faiths, poets, architects and artisans adorned his court from all over the world for study and discussion. Disillusioned with orthodox Islam and perhaps hoping to bring about religious unity within his empire, Akbar promulgated Din-i-Ilahi, a syncretic creed derived from Islam, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, and Christianity. A simple, monotheistic cult, tolerant in outlook, it centred on Akbar as a prophet, for which he drew the ire of the ulema and orthodox Muslims. Many of his courtiers followed Din-i-Ilahi as their religion as well, as many muslims believed that Akbar was a prophet. One famous courtier who followed this blended religion was Birbal. Thus, the foundations for a multicultural empire under Mughal rule was laid during his reign. Akbar was succeeded as emperor by his son, Jahangir, but he was addicted to opium, neglected the affairs of the state. During the reign of Jahangir’s son, Shah Jahan, the culture and splendour of the luxurious Mughal court reached its zenith as exemplified by the Taj Mahal.
Taj Mahal – Mughal muslim emperor, Shah Jahan
The Taj Mahal was commissioned by Shah Jahan in 1631, to be built in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal, a Persian princess who died giving birth to their 14th child, Gauhara Begum. The tomb is the centrepiece of a 42-acre complex, which includes a mosque and a guest house, and is set with in the formal gardens bounded on three sides by a crenellated wall.
The Taj Mahal complex is believed to have been completed in its entirety in 1653 at a cost estimated at the time to be around 32 million rupees, which in 2015 would be approximately 52.8 billion rupees (US$827 million). The construction project employed some 20,000 artisans under the guidance of a board of architects led by the court architect to the emperor, Ustad Ahmad Lahauri. The Taj Mahal was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 for being “the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage”. Shah Jahan ordered the right hand of the chief mason to be cut off so that the masterpiece could never be recreated.
British Raj Period
The British Raj period is the period of economic developments. During this period a tiny number of British officials and troops (about 20,000 in all) ruled over 300 million Indians. This was often seen as evidence that most Indians accepted and even approved of British rule. There is no doubt that Britain could not have controlled India without the co-operation of Indian princes and local leaders, as well as huge numbers of Indian troops, police officers, civil servants etc. The British Raj also introduced the legal and administrative system, the fact that Indo-Pak (Subcontinent) became the center of world politics.
On December 31, 1600 Queen Elizabeth I of England granted a royal charter to the British East India Company to carry out trade with the East. Ships first arrived in India in 1608, docking at Surat in modern-day Gujarat. In 1615, King James I sent Sir Thomas Roe as his ambassador to Jahangir’s court, and a commercial treaty was concluded in which the Mughals allowed the Company to build trading posts in India in return for goods from Europe. The Company traded in such commodities as cotton, silk, saltpetre, indigo, and tea. By the mid-1600s, the Company had established trading posts or “factories” in major Indian cities, such as Bombay, Calcutta, and Madras in addition to their first factory at Surat (built in 1612).
First War of Indian Independence
The spark that lit the fire was the result of a British blunder in using new cartridges for the Pattern 1853 Enfield rifle that were greased with animal fat, rumored to now be a combination of pig-fat and cow-fat. This was offensive to the religious beliefs of both Muslim and Hindu sepoys, who refused to use the cartridges under provocation, finally mutinied against their British officers.
On May 10, 1857 soldiers of the British Indian Army (known as “sepoys,” from Urdu/Persian sipaahi = “soldier”), drawn from the Indian Hindu and Muslim population, rose against British in Meerut, a cantonment 65 kilometres northeast of Delhi. At the time, the strength of the Company’s Army in India was 238,000, of whom 38,000 were Europeans. Indian soldiers marched to Delhi to offer their services to the Mughal emperor, and soon much of north and central India was plunged into a year-long insurrection against the British East India Company. Many Indian regiments and Indian kingdoms joined the uprising, while other Indian units and Indian kingdoms backed the British commanders and the HEIC.
Aftermath of the 1857 Rebellion
The rebellion was a major turning point in the history of modern India. In May 1858, the British exiled Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar II (r. 1837–1857) to Rangoon, Burma (now Yangon, Myanmar), after executing most of his family, thus formally liquidating the Mughal Empire. The Emperor’s three sons, also involved in the 1857 Rebellion, were arrested and shot in Delhi by Major William Stephen Raikes Hodson of the British Indian Army.
The Viceroy announced in 1858 that the government would honor former treaties with princely states and renounced the “Doctrine of Lapse,” whereby the East India Company had annexed territories of rulers who died without male heirs. About 40% of Indian territory and 20%–25% of the population remained under the control of 562 princes notable for their religious (Islamic, Hindu, Sikh and other) and ethnic diversity.
Development in British Raj
The entrepreneur Jamsetji Tata (1839–1904) began his industrial career in 1877 with the Central India Spinning, Weaving, and Manufacturing Company in Bombay.
British India built a modern railway system in the late nineteenth century which was the fourth largest in the world. The railways at first were privately owned and operated. It was run by British administrators, engineers and craftsmen.
The British Raj invested heavily in infrastructure, including canals and irrigation systems in addition to railways, telegraphy, roads and ports.
In the second half of the 19th century, both the direct administration of India by the British Crown and the technological change ushered in by the industrial revolution had the effect of closely intertwining the economies of India and Great Britain. Railways, roads, canals, and bridges were rapidly built in India and telegraph links equally rapidly established in order that raw materials, such as cotton, from India’s hinterland could be transported more efficiently to ports, such as Bombay, for subsequent export to England.
The first demonstration of electric light in Calcutta was conducted on July 24, 1879 by P W Fleury & Co. On 7 January 1897, Kilburn & Co secured the Calcutta electric lighting licence as agents of the Indian Electric Co, which was registered in London on January 15, 1897. A month later, the company was renamed the Calcutta Electric Supply Corporation. The control of the company was transferred from London to Calcutta only in 1970. Mumbai saw electric lighting demonstration for the first time in 1882 at Crawford Market and Bombay Electric Supply & Tramways Company (BEST) set up a generating station in 1905 to provide electricity for the tramway. The first electric street light in Asia was lit on August 5, 1905 in Bangalore. The first electric train ran between Bombay’s Victoria Terminus and Kurla along the Harbour Line, in 1925.
King Edward Medical University
King Edward Medical College is the oldest educational institute and medical school in Pakistan. Mayo Hospital is the attached hospital, which was built in 1872 and was named after Lord Mayo. King Edward Medical University is supervising Seven Tertiary care hospitals in Lahore as its teaching Hospitals. It is the most preferred medical college in the public sector.
The first academic building was completed in 1883. On December 21, 1911, Lahore Medical College was renamed King Edward Medical College in Honor of the late King and Emperor and was elevated to the status of an independent, degree-granting university on May 12, 2005, when it became King Edward Medical University.

Beginnings of self-government
The first steps were taken toward self-government in British India in the late 19th century with the appointment of Indian counsellors to advise the British viceroy and the establishment of provincial councils with Indian members; the British subsequently widened participation in legislative councils with the Indian Councils Act of 1892. Municipal Corporations and District Boards were created for local administration; they included elected Indian members.
The Hindu and muslims hate each other, in Islamic and Sikh period, muslims killed hindus and hindus killed muslims. There was no unity between the Hindu and Muslim community of sub-continent. Jinnah (Founder of Pakistan), who was born in 1876, studied law in England and began his career as an enthusiastic liberal in Congress upon returning to India. In 1913 he joined the Muslim League, which had been shocked by the 1911 annulment of the partition of Bengal into cooperating with Congress to make demands on the British. Jinnah continued his membership in Congress until 1919. During this dual membership period, he was described by a leading Congress spokesperson, Mrs. Sarojini Naidu, as the “ambassador of Hindu-Muslim unity.”
Before Leaving the sub-continent, British Empire divided the sub-continent to make a peaceful land. First the muslim religious leadership was against the Jinnah, who wanted to make a separate state for the minorities of sub-continent. Many Christian, Hindu, Qadyani and muslim leaders joined Quaid-e-Azam in this mission.
After the Creation of Pakistan in August 14, 1947, Pakistan was a secular state. But As time passed muslim sects started to spread islam, and gave fatwas against each other, Zia-ul-Haq (dictator) also promoted bralvie belief of Islam. Thought as the muslim religious leadership became part of the government in 1977, Pakistan became a Islamic democratic country.
Arabic Culture and Killing
Today, Pakistan is suffering from Terrorism, Corruption, bribery, the evil of nepotism and jobbery. We have lost more than 70,000 lives in suicide blast by muslim terrorists. Muslims Kill each other and other humans, because according to Islam, there are 73 sects of muslims and only one sect will enter into Islamic paradise.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 171 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Amr
That Allah’s Messenger (saws) said:
“There will befall my Ummah exactly all those evils which befell the people of Israel (Jews and Christians), so much so that if there was one amongst them who openly committed fornication with his mother, there will be amongst my Ummah one, who will do the same. And if the people of Israel were fragmented into seventy-two sects, my Ummah will be fragmented into seventy-three sects. All of them will be in Hell Fire except one sect. The noble Companions asked: O Allah’s Messenger (saws), which one is that? Whereupon he (saws) said: It is one to which I and my companions belong.”
“Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.”
Killing in Quran
Quran 9:5 “And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
Slave Women in Islam
Quran 33:52 “Not lawful to you, [O Muhammad], are women after [this], nor [is it] for you to exchange them for wives, even if their beauty were to please you, except what your right hand possesses [Salve women]. And ever is Allah , over all things, an Observer.”
Marriage with Young Girls
Sahih Bukhari 9.140 Narrated ‘Aisha:Allah’s Apostle (Prophet of Islam) said to me, “You were shown to me twice (in my dream) before I married you. I saw an angel carrying you in a silken piece of cloth, and I said to him, ‘Uncover (her),’ and behold, it was you. I said (to myself), ‘If this is from Allah, then it must happen.
Pakistan also suffering through slavery, religious sects promotes slavery of women. People have no freedom of speech, no human rights, a girl 6-9 years old is sold for a marriage to a 50 years old man. A girl has no right for her marriage, education and life. Even The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) has proposed its own women protection bill, recommending ‘a light beating’ for the wife if she defies the husband. Atheists, Christian, Shia, Hindu, Qadyani and other minorities are being killed publicly by using the tool of blasphemy against Islam. Christians homes are burnt, Christians are burnt alive. Terrorists enter in schools and threaten universities, school, colleges, they even attacked on Army Public school, and killed the young children in the cruelty for a religion.
This is all happening because of Arabic religious culture, which was brought to this land. Islam belongs to Arab, Palestine and Egypt. Egypt has the most old heritage and religion, Egyptian believed in god and goddess, the same Palestine and arab did which later was converted into islam with a new religion.
114 Ancient gods of Egypt: http://www.ancientegypt.co.uk/gods/explore/main.html
Amun King of the Gods : When Amun was combined with the sun god Ra he was even more powerful. He was then called Amun-Ra.
ISIS Isis was a protective goddess. She used powerful magic spells to help people in need.
Geb Earth God : The ancient Egyptians believed that earthquakes were Geb’s laughter.
Hathor Goddess of love and joy and also of music and dance .
Egypt King Pharaoh was not only the King of Egypt, but he was the god of Egypt, the main political and religious leader. The same is happening in Pakistan, Muslim religious leaders have mixed politics and religion which is not the cause of injustice, persecution, but also the cause of killing and terrorism. ISIS was also the goddess of Egypt, the same Evil is working in muslim terrorists, who want to conquer the world.
Do you really think that 180 millions of Pakistanis are terrorists? Then who are these people Malala Yousafzai, Nergis Mavalvala, Hon. Alvin Robert Cornelius, Władysław Turowicz, Abdul Sattar Edhi, Abdus Salam, Arfa Karim
Pakistani Peacemakers are fighting against terrorism from a long time, to call Pakistan a terrorist country It is injustice. Pakistan is in the control of extremists and peacemakers are being persecuted for raising their voices. There is an alarming need to spread the awareness of the old civilization of this region, which never belonged to a religion of killing.
