Today 7th September would mark the 39th anniversary of the infamous decision by Bhutto’s parliament to declare Ahmadis ‘non-Muslims’ for the purpose of constitution. By meddling in religious matters and pandering to Mullahs, the progressive Pakistan of 1960s eventually turned into a hotbed of extremism with a divided society that is confused about ideology.
What people has Pakistan disowned in these 39 years? Following is a list of a few of the many sons of the soil – all of whom happen to be Ahmadis – who were Pakistan’s true heroes and whose contribution to the nation is being maligned and erased by people whose own loyalty to the land is dubious.
1. Dr. Muhammad Abdus Salam: A Physicist of world acclaim who won the Nobel Prize in 1979 and was also the founder of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Italy. He also initiated the country’s civilian nuclear and space (SUPARCO) programs under Ayub Khan.
2. Sir Muhammad Zafrulla Khan:The author of the memorandum of the famous Lahore Resolution of 1940 which ultimately formed the basis for the creation of Pakistan. He was a close lieutenant of Quaid-e-Azam and diplomat and jurist of the highest order. He was handpicked by Jinnah himself to serve as the first Foreign Minister of Pakistan. Later on, Sir Zafrullah Khan served as Pakistan’s ambassador to the U.N., as President General Assembly U.N. and as President International Court of Justice. He has the rarest privilege of having held the highest international diplomatic and judicial positions in the world. Moreover, Jinnah himself asked Zafrulla Khan to represent Pakistan’s interest before the Boundary Commission.
