During a session of National Assembly, President of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F Maulana Fazlur Rahman stated in no uncertain terms that according to the Constitution, the ideology of Pakistan was Islam. He then also expressed his concern that the dream of Dr Allama Muhamad Iqbal was going sour, but pledged, at the same time, that he would not let this happen. His words assume all the more importance mainly because of two factors. First, because a section of our leadership in the recent past has not been generally showing the respect that it should be accorded to Pakistans ideology and the entire struggle of the Muslims of the subcontinent that resulted in this dear homeland of ours. Secondly and perhaps even more important is that these are times when our enemies are harbouring nefarious designs against us and they know fully well that in order to succeed they would have to attack our ideological frontiers. Under these circumstances, we must know who we are and what was it that Quaid-i-Azam created this country for. It was meant to be a state where Muslims could practise their religion freely without any threat of persecution and maltreatment by the dominant Hindus. Maulana Fazlur Rahman deserves a pat on the back for highlighting this issue and indeed opening the eyes of the errant leadership.
