THERE IS NO REGIONALISM OR NATIONALISM IN ISLAM: HABIB YOUSAFZAI, THE CHAIRMAN KASHMIR DIASPORA ALLIANCE
The adversary nations were worried about the Muslim Empire of Caliph Umar Bin Khattab (Raziallah Talla Anho), and Ottoman Empire (Saltanat Usmania). They could not do anything in the time of Caliph Umar Bin Khattab (Raziallah Talla Anho), but at the time of Ottoman Empire, they began to devise plots on how to defeat Muslims? “Ottoman Empire created by Turkish tribes in Anatolia (Asia Minor) that grew to be one of the most powerful states in the world during the 15th and 16th centuries. The Ottoman period spanned more than 600 years and came to an end only in 1922, when it was replaced by the Turkish Republic and various successor states in south Eastern Europe and the Middle East. At its height the empire encompassed most of south eastern Europe to the gates of Vienna, including present-day Hungary, the Balkan region, Greece, and parts of Ukraine; portions of the Middle East now occupied by Iraq, Syria, Israel, and Egypt, North Africa as far west as Algeria; and large parts of the Arabian Peninsula. The term Ottoman is a dynastic appellation derived from Hazrat Osman Raziallah Talla Anho (Arabic: Uthman ), the nomadic Turkmen chief who founded both the dynasty and the empire about 1300”.

The enemies of Islam had incepted with sowing the seed of regionalism and started propagating to them that they are different nations based on their ethnicity. They made them believe that since the Turk Muslims are treating them as slaves because their culture and language and many other things are dissimilar than Turks. They assured them that if they disassociate themselves from Turks they can help them in liberation of their regions, and in this way they can establish their own kingdoms. They finally became successful in dismembering Ottoman Empire, and made these small regions as their own slaves instead. Our beloved prophet Muhammad made these tribes one nation. Kindly refer to Last Sermon of our beloved Muhammad (PBUH).
The same history was repeated once again with Palestine which is now occupied by Jews. Almost all Arab Kingdoms have tried to take it back, but failed. Third Arab-Israeli War that took place June 5-10, 1967, and was the third of the Arab-Israeli Wars. Israel’s victory included the capture of Sinai Peninsula, Ghaza Strip, West Bank, Old City of Jerusalem, and Golan Heights. The status of these territories subsequently became a major point of contention in the Arab-Israeli conflict. There is no doubt that old adversary nation sided Israel, but all Arab countries were party to the case. Again Israelis played the role of the “lion bull prey strategy”. It was very hard for the adversary nations and Israel to get victory in the long run against this entire Arab world. By the intensive propaganda they made the Muslims of Palestine believe that they are different nation than that of Saudis, Egyptians, Jordanian, and Syrians, Yamani, etcetera. They misguided the Muslims of Palestine if they separate them from Arabs and demand their own country than we will accept the request. A promise which seems to be never materialized, and at this point in time it is known fact that the Muslims are passing a miserable and unsafe life under the subjugation of Israelis.
Indian sub-continent consisted of several sovereign states, and the overwhelming majority of these states were inhabited by Hindus. The Muslims united them and ruled them over a thousand years, but after the demise of Emperor Hindustan, Hazrat Aurangzeb Alamgir (Rahmatullaahi ‘alaih) his heirs could not hold to the empire. The Muslim’s had faced a tough time. As per partition agreement they had to give up majority states of India because there were heavily populated by Hindus. Despite the partition agreement, India tried its level best to sever or occupy the areas which supposedly a part of Pakistan. In order to increase its material power, India occupied Punjab Khalistan a state of Sikhs even the Sikhs are close to Muslims because they are follower of one God and share common culture with Muslims unlike Hindus. Or they could establish their own sovereign country, as the Sikhs ruled Punjab for about 50 years under the rein of Maharaja Ranjit Singh as a sovereign state. By following expansionist policy, India forcefully occupied Manawader, Junagarah, Hyderabad (Deccan) and 42,000 square miles of state of Jammu and Kashmir (also known as Maqbooza Kashmir). Following the western doctrine, it first told the people of East Pakistan (Presently known as Bangladesh) that they are being looted by the people of West Pakistan because they are Bengalis, and a different race, and complete its nefarious design by breaking the International Law by intervening militarily, and dismembered Pakistan.
While all these states mentioned in above paragraph except Punjab Khalistan had decided to join Pakistan. In particular, the Muslims of Maqbooza, Kashmir passed their verdict under Sardar Ibrahim Khan Ghazi-e-Millat on July 19, 1947 that the state will be a part of Pakistan. The Muslims of the state of Jammu Kashmir like other parts of sub-continent India are the builder of Pakistan. They sacrificed a lot to establish a Muslim state Pakistan which they could call their own. The Indian leadership consisting of Pundit Jawaharlal Nehri, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, and C H Tervedi did not want to see the state of Jammu Kashmir going to Pakistan. They knew that the state of Jammu Kashmir is an overwhelming Muslim majority state and the people already has given their verdict it would be hard to keep this state with India. They conspired with Hari Singh Dogra the Hindu ruler of the state of Jammu Kashmir. Indian leadership as well as bribed Sheikh Abdullah also known as Mir Abdullah of Kashmir (a term synonymous to Mir Jaffar and Mir Sadiq the traitors in the history of Islam), who divided the Muslims of the state. To fulfill the plan the Hari Sing ordered a systematic genocide of Jammu Muslims at the end of July 1947, and killed more than 200,000 Muslims and rest were ordered to leave if they want to keep themselves alive. The sole purpose was to turn the state to Hindu majority. (http://www.kmsnews.org/news/2012/12/04/genocide-of-muslims-jammu-1947.html).
Indian forces occupied about 42,000 square miles of the state of Jammu and Kashmir also known as Maqbooza Kashmir on October 27, 1947. Pakistan forces, however, managed to liberate about 4,000 square miles which was named Azad Kashmir and now known as Ghazi Kashmir. It could have liberated remaining too, but Pundit Nehru contacted the United Nation as the result a ceasefire was ordered which was accepted. It was decided that the inhabitants of Maqbooza Kashmir will decide in a plebiscite under the UN auspicious that which country would they want to join? Instead implementation of the UN resolution, India codified whole the state Maqbooza Kashmir and Ghazi Kashmir as an integral part into its constitution. Some moron politicians are suggesting that Pakistan withdraw its claim from Maqbooza Kashmir, and gave up Ghazi Kashmir as well. It will be an extreme tragedy for the Pakistanis of Jammu and Kashmir origin if government of Pakistan abandon them. For two reasons; (i) as soon as soon Pakistan withdraw its forces from LoC, India will occupy it, (ii) the same history will be repeated in whole region like in Bangladesh, the loyal people to Pakistan are being hanged after 45 years of its dismemberment. Some are suggesting to concentrate on whatever is left of Pakistan and particularly on Baluchistan. Godforbid after losing Baluchistan, these spineless people will advise to concentrate on whatever is left of Pakistan. There is no need to consider the inhabitants of Ghazi Kashmir or the Muslims of Jammu Kashmir origin as aliens who made Pakistan. It must secure the areas it has liberated more than six decades ago and make Ghazi Kashmir as sixth province but it must approve in its constitution that Maqbooza Kashmir is Pakistan’s lawful part as per two nations theory and India must return it if the inhabitants of Maqbooza Kashmir like to join Pakistan. We the Muslims of Maqbooza Kashmir still believe that our future is safe if we go with Pakistan.
At the present time there is no need to split the present Muslim countries on the basis of regionalism or tribe. We have already too many countries; rather they should be merged with adjacent Muslim country under some federation arrangements so that the powerful countries could not treat them as slaves.
