Future of the doctrine by Dr. Dahlia Wasfi

Future of the doctrine

We need to educate the people and masses because all we need is awareness and education at first step either people living in States or Somalia or Iraq. Before walking to anyway we must need what is going on systematically once we have understanding we can realize and workout for common good. as this is mass oppression going on from decades.

Dear People of World:

This is about human very basic right that is not breath or food or very basic that is to live without oppression. This is common good and this undeniable and this is the right time to understand before its too late. as none gonna ask you for your good but this is our own decision to take and march towards it or to walk towards it before its too late. Really its already too late when masses had faced the evil or bloodshed of times.
This is my plea before its too late and waged on your home by the same oppressor kindly open your eyes and be very honest. Its not about east or west or white or black its a systematic way of evil going on under cover of media and stake holders like Corporation. Which apparently looks so awesome but they are real black-sheep. Wake up and may be its not the first wake up call or not the last one but we have to self realize or atleast educate people with truth as a last resort. Its not about a faith or color or region. Kindly its my humble request atleast live with a purpose and strive for humanity and humankind. The systematic way is too strong but when you will get aware and understood the root cause and with faith nothing is so difficult all you need to be very honest and walk towards the straight and steep path towards GOD. With faith and understand you will eventually can see a lot better than anyone other. All you need to see all incident in bit connected and with historic view. Nothing in this world of happening without a reason. Truth has to rule and appear on all horizons even one put all media to suppress and contaminate it with so called conspiracy. As there is nothing conspiracy at all. And wrong doers are living as this is their world and they have the only right to live and for their own objective object the sovereignty of any native either near or far but a person is native to this world where ever he dwells.

And Honestly there should not be any reason to spread the truth even that truth is against yourself. Because in short or long run we have to pay the price of our self made decision either is a share button even. When we keep silent on even in our home door or street on media we are strengthening the evil and support them for none of our goodness or betterment. Please speak and rather impartial towards the facts. Because all I know or you can understand with passage of time. Nothing gonna remain on this earth. Not the color not any region or the time but all what gonna remain our actions and deeds how we are writing our fate. When we stop responding or standing or raising to voice we live like nothing or without any existence even due to any personal or geographical or political or religions or any view but honestly we strengthen the bad. And our that bad one day collide with us in walk of life.

Either to one of our sibling or companion or colleague or person living miles away with other color or language.

The very common among humankind is humanity and humanity is mother of all emotions and languages. So Please rather wasting a very precious time for nothing live for something that is not money or position but Morality and Humanity and values. This world need nothing called peace or technology all we need is humanity being the HUMANKIND. Nothing gonna remain nor our skins or bones or castes or palaces or huts or business or our greed or arrogance or elegance we strive to live with or dream to live with. But all will remain is the Creator and the humanity on the planet. Day after Day its getting worst and the only reason is our walk away from the facts and our own understanding towards the purpose of life.

Please do not say: Its nothing to do with me or I am not a politician or social worker or a humanitarian or religious or etc but we are HUMAN and we Are rightful only defender of HUMANITY on this World of Humans. Please atleast share the truth if your common sense and conscious is voting yes for it. and all you need to give time to very special person that is YOURSELF not anyone else or your beloved BUT Its About YOU. You are the only Change and the CHANGES comes with A objective and purpose and the history and world of existence nothing could be possible than a good or great purpose than HUMANITY.

Please brave enough and be very you to speak for your own sake not for people but for your own-self.

Stay Blessed

Read Iraq War Article:

Modern Warfare:

 Its not about Taliban/Sects/Religion/faiths/regions/colors at all. This is modern warfare and this is how they made it look like war against terrorism and right now we are on the verge of war. Our provinces and government departments and army all are being engage to fight these conspiracies even they are truth. Even a simple dumb history student can make analysis of friendship of So called world powers and the end result. Democracy in states or UK all are saving their thugs honestly. This is modern way of world war to capture the resources of all countries who got oil or minerals or strategic importance they build their Point of presence on all sites and controlled them and under the hood of democracy after killing hundred of thousands on the name of peace they build sectarian issues. and corporations are running the world powers politics. And right now after making very powerful command and control on all around middle east one after another war being waged. they are clearing Afghanistan and now Syria and finally Pakistan will be the target. But this is the very critical time for people of Pakistan . This is the time when they let people of Pakistan worry about local issues of security and needs of Gasoline and households or jobs. Behind the media and on ground they are building the and stabling the parameters to fully wage us.Sooner or later we have to face them in an year or coming years they will eventually attack Pakistan together. from all directions. But we are sleeping under the dust of time as were our fellow brothers and sisters in Iraq/Afghanistan or Syria or Bosnia or in Palestine or Burma or Kashmir. Pakistan is now under attack from many years. but eventually they will wage it fully and people of Pakistan are so busy in domestic issue. and can not read the parameters and ground facts which are knocking on our all walls and frontiers and borders from all directions.

And a little about Political Parties or feudals or Family Parties. or One Man show there are all worthless to be elected to decide the fate of the world. Fate of the world I will say because Pakistan is again so strategic for the rest of the world as Pakistan is middle of Super Powers and only power with Nukes. all agencies of world from day of emergence till now are trying very hard to bring us down. Even we remain in peace from decades and they tested us from all directions. Right now All we need to aware people before the time come. May be interim government will come and bring or talk about again Changes but how long people of Pakistan will be mocked or played with faces and names and different slogans. Under the hood all are looking at personal interest only few can see the enemies and can define the policy to ensure the rest in peace to world. Dr. Dahlia Wasfi lectures on counterinsurgency at NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study during a day-long symposium on the past, present, and future of the doctrine that has officially guided the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2007. The symposium paid special attention to the role of anthropologists in counterinsurgency operations. She explained all whats done and what and how they do this and procedures and tactics are all same in all times. But all we need to aware the people round the clock and round the world Because its never only the victim who have to pay the price but all of the world and all humankind are under the same after effects or massacre and bloodshed and atrocities done in time for whatsoever reason or ground even to kill one person or a ground of people. World should be aware similarly people of all lands and faiths. All we need to identify the oppressor and his oppression going as the people from them have to raise the voice as long run or short people living in the land of oppressor have to face the same oppression under the Umbrella so if they are silent they have to pay the price either in way of Taxes or no jobs or vaccines or killing or no justice or no Rule.

When a person speak its not always for him. Its for others because he has paid the price but being a human-being he get worried for others as other should not face the same brutality and cruelty due to the oppressor.


This is the Reason I only shared above two Videos to know the Truth. As people are shouting but do not get attention as people close eyes but how long they will remain silent and keep on ignoring the gravity of the mass murder done under their name for nothing. Kindly share and play your part and rest left to the rest as how much humanity they have to talk about the truth.

Hope so many are aware of the situation but not talking and knowing and sharing the truth is our own coward and dishonesty and in times all have to pay the same price of the hard tides and times. At-least watch both videos and there is a lot more literature is available to read and to know the truth. You can not always ignore if someone first knocking your door and later pulling down the door and throwing you out of the your home and later you have nothing left to do talk shows or poll the vote and share personal stuff or achievements or events.

Wonder of world

Human intelligence can be over or under rated. But still a human have to learn a lot on his way of exploring the world he living in. We have a time unit and A light year and to the cosmos we are living there are so tiny units even we are very short of measuring unit to this gigantic universe. Human being has to learn a lot during the course of his life. From very start of time and till now Human learned all from the The Creator. all words being taught to him. Human technology and inventions still need a word purpose and if that purpose is common betterment than it will excel to new ways with mutual collaboration from all races and colors of humankind. But everything is good for those who understand the happening and occurrence and existence of all is due to reason and objects and purpose. And running in a perfect harmony as for example a human creation and all automation of human body and CNS and all other systems working together in a perfect harmony and still human is currently rather doing constructive ways playing with immune systems. I will pray and keep praying to ALLAH that let us understand and walk towards you and help the other who is near or close from us. This wonderful world is created for us like all living things like with understanding are for us to enjoy and use them in appropriate way. Not to distort the nature but preserve it in its own fashion as there is no fissure and fault and something missing in all creation and living thing around us. ALL existence and non existence creations are perfect in fashion of creation. and there is no filth in creation as Nature itself recycle itself in perfect way as the Creator is showing us symbols and examples throughout our life tenure and stages of ages. above all these creatures take us close to The Creator.

Tribute to our Mohtram Qazi Sahab from his sons 

ایسی ویڈیو جو آپ کی آنکھیں کھول دے گی
آپ کو یقین نہیں آئے گا کہ اس ملک میں ایسے لوگ بھی موجود ہیں جنکی امانت ودیانت کا دوست اور دشمن سبھی اقرار کرتے ہیں ۔ اور آپ مجبور ہو جائیں گے کہ 2013 کے الیکشن میں ایسے لوگوں کو ہی ووٹ دیں


Whats going on right now in whole world?

Whats going on right now in whole world? and why in Pakistan one after another leader or scholar killed? Do Pakistani Nationalist killed ? what media is doing? what politician doing ?

We need to ponder on all aspects before talking about this ERA of STOCK TAKING. and before that we need to have a brief look at PRESENT WORLD and FOUNDATIONS OF MODERN CIVILIZATION. There is not problem with bases. You can never bring a perfection in a system. Live in Reality. Its a very slow process of awareness first because right now ignorance is our first challenge and when people are fully aware and knowledge full they will eventually wiser enough to speak and know the truth. Why always a scholar is to be killed or a person or leader who wants a change or prosperity to his people? from the birth of this nation and till now and also the Khilafah break and reason and till now. we need to make a broader look to all events. Its all happening in same fashion. In Pakistan you can see they are taking down any scholar who is really wiser and one after another. Oppressor is always oppressor. Its not always about Leaders but its about us. the people of a land or nation or followers of religion. You need to look around in history to know the truth. Right now we can only see the fall of wall brick after another. for viewing the issue we need to go to past when this wall was firm and strong like Iron wall. That Wall is Muslim Ummah. Like Muslims in Spain. or at the time of Life of Muhammad PBUH. Its not I am connecting a to z but truth is truth. its either Palestine, Bosnia, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, or Egypt. This is not done in single shot its a continue process of destruction and a very wide mass destruction on all levels of civilizations and cultures and society.

Thing is whatever happening in my home is not the issue of the person living on a far coast. But when far coast is taking interest there is some interest. And interest is very obvious not even resources but destabilize the systems with one after another push or trick. we need to learn the lessons from past. Its not that we are the victims but all world have to pay the price. Right now Europe and America or Australia all are facing the Giants Corporations against their own people even Governments. as oppressor has one rule that is to oppress. because when people of America,Europe or Australia let excel the tumor in their cradles now they have to taste and at the same time we are tasting it from more than 2 centuries.

But Our scholars did a very good job here. There is a list of them philosopher or religious or politician in past who fought and make people aware not only their nation but world. irrespective of the color or faith they pointed out the common evil of systems. and why Islam is the most growing religion in world is have only Reason that is TRUTH. Truth is a single shot that make you calm and soothe right in heart. and right now you can see these towers of light from horizons to world in all places they are dazzling and delighting the hearts of people. Its not a fantasy its truth and Truth speaks for its Truthfulness round the clock and breath after another. Either our politician are chosen or imposed but ALLAH ALMIGHTY is the only Best PLANNER in all existence and non existence living or non living. One have to meet God after 1 wink of eye or 1 break or 1 Day or 10 years or 100 or thousands of years but eventually we have to meet God.

This is a simple understanding whatever going on or in the world we are living but we have one to one connection to ALLAH and that channel is between two.
Bottom line is our wills for will only be en-lighted when our wills will fall in WILL of Creator and know the objective of living and the path as ISLAM THE ONLY WAY

Did you ever think that why Allah created us?

Did you ever think that why Allah created us?

Did you ever think that why Allah created us ? i'm sure  ALLAH HAD purpose to create us ?

But before i start. I'd like to let you know that Allah did not create humans or anything else because of a need. Allah does not need anything he creates. Allah is above the creation, and therefore has no need for any of it.
and also we must understand that us, humans, are not the greatest creation. (I know you are thinking, "WHAT, how could this be!!!") We know this because of this verse from quran
Indeed, the creation of the heavens and the earth is greater than the creation of mankind, but most of mankind do not realize it 40:57
لَخَلْقُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ أَكْبَرُ مِنْ خَلْقِ النَّاسِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

So, why we are here?
أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ عَبَثًا وَأَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لَا تُرْجَعُونَ
Did you think that We had created you to play (without any purpose), and that you would not be brought back to Us?"(23:115)

Allah says in the Quran that He did not create all of this for any foolish purpose. He tells us that He created us for the purpose of worshiping Him, Alone and without any partners.
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
And I (Allah) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone).(51:56)

إِنَّنِي أَنَا اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا أَنَا فَاعْبُدْنِي وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ لِذِكْرِي
Indeed, I am Allah . There is no deity except Me, so worship Me and establish prayer
                        so the purpose is to worship him Alone :)
If so what did ALLAH command us to do until meeting up HIM?

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَأْمُرُكُمْ أَن تُؤَدُّوا الْأَمَانَاتِ إِلَىٰ أَهْلِهَا وَإِذَا حَكَمْتُم بَيْنَ النَّاسِ أَن تَحْكُمُوا بِالْعَدْلِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ نِعِمَّا يَعِظُكُم بِهِ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ سَمِيعًا بَصِيرًا
Verily! Allah commands that you should render back the trusts to those to whom they are due; and that when you judge between men, you judge with justice. Verily, how excellent is the teaching with He (Allah) gives you! Truly, Allah is Ever All-Hearer, All-Seer. (4:58)

قُلْ تَعَالَوْا أَتْلُ مَا حَرَّمَ رَبُّكُمْ عَلَيْكُمْ ۖ أَلَّا تُشْرِكُوا بِهِ شَيْئًا ۖ وَبِالْوَالِدَيْنِ إِحْسَانًا ۖ وَلَا تَقْتُلُوا أَوْلَادَكُم مِّنْ إِمْلَاقٍ ۖ نَّحْنُ نَرْزُقُكُمْ وَإِيَّاهُمْ ۖ وَلَا تَقْرَبُوا الْفَوَاحِشَ مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَمَا بَطَنَ ۖ وَلَا تَقْتُلُوا النَّفْسَ الَّتِي حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ وَصَّاكُم بِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ
Say (O Muhammad pbuh ) : Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited you from: be Join not anything in worship with Him; be good and dutiful to your parents; Kill not your children because of poverty “ We provide sustenance for you and for them; come not near to Al-Fawahish (shameful sins, illegal sexual intercourse) whether committed openly or secretly; and kill not anyone whom Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause (according to Islamic law). This He has commanded you that you may understand (6:151)

Allah, our Creator, commands us to believe in HIM, pray for HIM ALONE, obey HIM ALONE and follow HIS messengers ,and  stay away from evil-doing.There is a guarantee of HIS Mercy in HIS obedience.

     sound so easy not that hard to ignore what you are created for

Now What is going to happen to the previous nations when they disobeyed Allah ?

وَعَنَتِ الْوُجُوهُ لِلْحَيِّ الْقَيُّومِ ۖ وَقَدْ خَابَ مَنْ حَمَلَ ظُلْمًا
And [all] faces will be humbled before the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence. And he will have failed who carries injustice (20:111)

وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَن ذِكْرِي فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنكًا وَنَحْشُرُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَعْمَىٰ
And how ever turns away from My remembrance - indeed, he will have a depressed life, and We will gather him on the Day of Resurrection blind" (20:124)

قَالَ رَبِّ لِمَ حَشَرْتَنِي أَعْمَىٰ وَقَدْ كُنتُ بَصِيرًا
He will say, "My Lord, why have you raised me blind while I was [once] seeing? (20:125)

قَالَ كَذَٰلِكَ أَتَتْكَ آيَاتُنَا فَنَسِيتَهَا ۖ وَكَذَٰلِكَ الْيَوْمَ تُنسَىٰ
[ Allah ] will say, "Thus did Our signs come to you, and you forgot them; and thus will you this Day be forgotten (20:126)

وَكَذَٰلِكَ نَجْزِي مَنْ أَسْرَفَ وَلَمْ يُؤْمِن بِآيَاتِ رَبِّهِ ۚ وَلَعَذَابُ الْآخِرَةِ أَشَدُّ وَأَبْقَىٰ
And thus do We recompense he who transgressed and did not believe in the signs of his Lord. And the punishment of the Hereafter is more severe and more enduring(20:127)

فَكُلًّا أَخَذْنَا بِذَنبِهِ ۖ فَمِنْهُم مَّنْ أَرْسَلْنَا عَلَيْهِ حَاصِبًا وَمِنْهُم مَّنْ أَخَذَتْهُ الصَّيْحَةُ وَمِنْهُم مَّنْ خَسَفْنَا بِهِ الْأَرْضَ وَمِنْهُم مَّنْ أَغْرَقْنَا ۚ وَمَا كَانَ اللَّهُ لِيَظْلِمَهُمْ وَلَٰكِن كَانُوا أَنفُسَهُمْ يَظْلِمُونَ
So We punished each (of them) for his sins; of them were some on whom We sent Hasib (a violent wind with shower of stones) (as on the people of Lut (Lot) , and of them were some who were overtaken by As-saihah (torment “ awful cry. (as Thamud or Shuabs people), and of them were some whem We caused the earth to swallow (as Qarun (Korah), and of them were some whom We drowned (as the people of Nuh (Noah), or Firaun (Pharaoh) and his people). It was not Allah Who wronged them, but they wronged themselves .(29,40)

By the end... and it's not the end... i do like to remind you with one of ALLAH is advice to us

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَارًا وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلَائِكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ شِدَادٌ لَّا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ
O you who have believed, protect yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is people and stones, over which are [appointed] angels, harsh and severe; they do not disobey Allah in what He commands them but do what they are commanded. (66:6)

وَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِنَ الصَّالِحَاتِ وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَا يَخَافُ ظُلْمًا وَلَا هَضْمًا
But he who does of rightchous deeds while he is a believer - he will neither fear injustice nor deprivation (20:112)

The Golden ingredient of success : Purpose

The Golden ingredient of success : Purpose

Masses are crazy about events and things and wonders happening in world round the clock and with each breath. But under the wonders of happening their is a unique element called objective lets Pray God let us understand the Objective of all this happening and even the object of creation of this world as well the objective of creation of the human-being and objective of creation of all living and non living and existence or non existence. Matter or no matter but objective is our strive and our straight path to God make us more close to step after another with as much clear we are clear about the objective of all happening and occurrence of events around us even the very next moment or the moment passing out or the moment you are going to face the very next of the wink of eye or the the very next breath. Its all God knows all we know is objective of our life is to live for others. and have to live close to GOD with our actions and words and purpose and deeds and to do list. In all mattes we need to know the objective and objective make and delight the deeds and our works as we do not work with hands or mind but with soul and passion and power of will from HIM right in our heart. The only ingredient of success is the Purpose.

When your purpose is helping the very next living being without out any interest You will be automatically lead to the next step that is climax of humanity and living a life for humanity.

You can see and read and implement many objective plans and techniques to motivate your team but above all is the real motive and objective of the work or deed or the purpose of job. When that purpose is bringing good to humanity in real means or the soul of the job from thinking to production level is serving humanity than your all members will be full of enthusiasm. You do not need to a valued time to workout on their brainstorming or making them focus of the jobs or work all you need to take care of them in their issues regarding being human being rather an employee. Its very easy to understand from the creation of all existence and non existence that the purpose is the golden ingredient in all universe.

All creatures throughout the living cycle stay tight to the objectives. When you are not sure about the objective you will be lost in wonder land of existence and non-existence with each breath or tide you will lost in those wonders. and when you are fully aware of the Objective your all efforts and deeds will be focus and destined to success.

From Nature this Objective is Live for others and to human that is solely HUMANITY.

The Objective of all humankind is Humanity and that is the only Message of books from GOD. and words from GOD. The day you will live for others you will surely safeguard your greed and evil habit intrusion to your work or action list. and your own objective and focus will be others and that is Humanity and in other means the other one do the same for you. and that will bring the common factor of excel that is Objective in society. Henceforth step after another Golden ingredient will be part of the Humanity by humankind. that will bring perfect harmony among creatures and take them back to the Creator.

The Jews and Christians say

The Jews and Christians say:

Holy Quran explains what they are saying in Surat At-Tawbah (The Repentance) - سورة التوبة
This is a portion of the entire surah. View more context, or the entire surah.


And the Jews say: 'Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allah's Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!


They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allah), and (they also took as their Lord) Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), while they (Jews and Christians) were commanded [in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)) to worship none but One Ilah (God - Allah) La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He). Praise and glory be to Him, (far above is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)."


They (the disbelievers, the Jews and the Christians) want to extinguish Allah's Light (with which Muhammad SAW has been sent - Islamic Monotheism) with their mouths, but Allah will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the Kafirun (disbelievers) hate (it).


It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) hate (it).


O you who believe! Verily, there are many of the (Jewish) rabbis and the (Christian) monks who devour the wealth of mankind in falsehood, and hinder (them) from the Way of Allah (i.e. Allah's Religion of Islamic Monotheism). And those who hoard up gold and silver [Al-Kanz: the money, the Zakat of which has not been paid], and spend it not in the Way of Allah, -announce unto them a painful torment.

Water and Dams and Power issues

Thank you very much Tariq Mian for correcting me:)

Just a view of local news papers as let his to judiciary to eradicate the dishonesty and bring culprit behind the bars or show to nation who is who and who did what:

Its a need of hour to show the real face of people who are sitting and enjoying the taxes of Pakistan for nothing in return even this the very first part of the oath to be honest with their job. But what really going on ?

Most of the people are really really not working at all for any common good other than their own good and personal benefits along the tenure. How long we will be a silent observer or I will say spectators of Wonderland of Pakistan. None of us gonna speak and few are if speaking do not appreciate them as they are part of some conspiracy theories lols :)

This World is wonderful place with people do not follow the obvious and follow the falsehood and later give a perfect statement this is conspiracy theory. And if you do not want anyone to talk about something put a single dot or point it out as suspecious incident or event and if someone start to find out truth:

A Common fashion is adopted:

Are you mad or what?

Nothing gonna change?

Are you Really Insane?

Are you nuts?

What gonna change if you really find the truth and shared?

Listen : and listen it very clearly :

Its not and never about them or anyone its belong to us and its a very rightful and very first right of human being to speak truth and share truth and read truth and strive for truth. eventually rest will be synchronize and get stable and up to mark in even a longer run.

So lets not be so simple and lets do not make our home a home of conspiracy theories and being responsible citizen or nation: if someone is not doing anything just begin it from you. as this is the last resort of any matter as well the very first resort too. Its a matter of understanding and really matter to take part and read and write about. A Change only comes when you wish or strive for it. Change or Truth comes from us. Either its any part or walk of life.

Either its issue of Water Board or WAPDA or SUI GAS or anyother Department or monopoly of PTCL or education system or religions aspects. We can do a lot and we make a change as the only thing that changed or bad effected is :

The way people start thinking and acting

This is the very first ground the made so firm as our thinking process is deeply and unfortuanetly changed as we are no more effective in many ways either its education perspective or issue of water or a simple election participation or issue of social media and social culture or norms. Though individuals are becoming benchmarks with the passage of time. We are really so diverse in ways and things we have right in this country. Everybit is in our favor the only missing ingredients is The Muslim Of Quran or Life of Muhammad PBUH or ME of Iqbal or with times that conception came to be followed by us.

In this world everyone by nature is good and willing to do good.

According to the probe report received by Dunya News, ex-Indus Water Commissioner Jamaat Ali Shah remained mum over contentious Nimo Bazgo hydropower project on Indus river for four years despite being aware about it.The probe committee recorded the statements of Indus Water Commissioner Sheraz memon, Deputy Indus Water Commissioner Faris Qazi and former Joint Commissioner Tahir Waseem. Only verbal statement of Jamaat Ali Shah wasrecorded.Jammat Ali Shah was accused of keeping the government into dark regarding controversial Mino Bazgo Dam project despite of reports of Military Intelligence and Inter Services Intelligence and help India to get Carbon Credit Certificate from United Nations. Shah also refrained from taking the matter into International Court of Arbitration despite of government directions.


Jihadi periodical Jamaatud Dawa newspaper Jarrar (5 March 2010) reported that the people of Pakistan thought that Pakistan's Indus Water Commissioner Jamaat Ali Shah was bodily a Pakistani but his tongue spoke the language of Hindus. He had not stopped making the strange statement (darfuntani) that India had not stolen Pakistan's water. Jamaat Ali Shah was getting his salary from Pakistan but working for India, the paper said.

Unfortunately, Jamaatud Dawa took out a procession on Lahore's central mall in February 2010, its leader Hafiz Said making provocative speeches. Later the Chief of the Army Staff and the Prime of Pakistan also raised 'the issue of waters' in their statements.

Reported in Nawa-e-Waqt (3 June 2010) a seminar held by Nawa-e-Waqt Group of newspapers decided that Pakistan's Indus Waters Commissioner Jamaat Ali Shah was no longer speaking for Pakistan but was defending the Indian position on the stealing of river waters by India through 62 dams. Speakers including such "illustrious" men as Ambassador (Retd) Javed Hussain who said that India was stealing one crore forty acre feet of water and that the Indus Water Treaty was only good for the 1960s but today India's water aggression could lead to an Indo-Pak war that would soon turn into a nuclear world war.

Nawa-e-Waqt further reported that Indus Waters Treaty Commissioner Jamaat Ali Shah, while leaving for New Delhi to talk about waters shared by India and Pakistan, said that Pakistan was getting its share of waters under the Indus Treaty and that building a dam was the right of India. He said less water in Pakistani rivers was because of lack of rain, not because India had blocked it. The statement was a shock to many who thought India was waging a water war against Pakistan.

Quoted in Jang, Indus Water Commissioner Jamaat Ali Shah said in Lahore that Indus Water Treaty between Pakistan and India was an unhappy marriage over the years. He said India was preparing to build 25 to 20 dams on the rivers given to Pakistan. Although the dams were allowed by the treaty India should act on the spirit of the Treaty and agree to amend the amount of water given by the treaty to India from three Pakistani rivers. The reason was that the water flow in these rivers had decreased.

Reported in Nawa-e-Waqt (16 Dec 2010) Jamaat Ali Shah Pakistani's Indus Waters Commissioner under the Indus Treaty was made OSD by the PM after many years in service once considered meritorious. He was made the commissioner in 1993 and was on the job till 2010 while India changed four commissioners during this period. Zahurul Hasan Dahir of the anti-India lobby said Shah had accepted Indian influence and had allowed Indian dams to be built on rivers belonging to Pakistan.

Reported in Jang (5 Jan 2012), Indus Waters ex-commissioner Jamaat Ali Shah facilitated the building of India's illegal Nimoo-Bazgo dam so that Leh could get electricity which means that Indian soldiers at Siachen would get the benefit of more comfort through use of electricity.

Quoted in daily Pakistan (4 Jan 2012), former Indus Waters Commissioner Jamaat Ali Shah said in Canada that he was surprised by news that he had run away to Canada after violating exit-control orders against him. He said he had come to Canada to look after his ill mother and despite retirement from his job he had informed the concerned authorities before departing Pakistan. He said he was available to answer any charges.

On 23 January 2012, the Ministry of Water and Power and its subordinate institution - the Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) - started probing deeper into the alleged involvement of former Indus Water commissioner Jamaat Ali Shah in allegedly "facilitating" Indian authorities to construct the controversial Nimoo-Bazgo hydropower project. FIA swooped down and took control of the office of the Commissioner and began pouring over its files.

Dawn (16 April 2011) reported: 'Intelligence agencies seized on Friday the record of at least two federal ministries to investigate an alleged institutional lapse of not raising objections over Indian aggression on the country's water rights and securing international carbon credits on hydropower projects disputed by Pakistan'.

A preliminary report maintained that the former water commissioner did not play his due role and remained silent over the Nimoo-Bazgo hydropower project (built by India during 2002-2009) and did not raise any objections during the Pak-India meetings. But surprisingly, the commission started pursuing the project vigorously at all levels when it was known that it would be impossible to change the design of the project after its completion. The 57-metre-high controversial Nimoo-Bazgo hydroelectric project is being developed in the Leh district on the Indus River and it is a run-of-the-river power project on the Indus River situated in village Alchi, 70 kilometres from Leh.

Express Tribune (3 January2012) reported: 'Pakistan is gearing up for yet another legal battle over India's 'aggression' on the country's water rights and securing international carbon credits on hydropower projects disputed by Pakistan. The latest case under dispute is the construction of the controversial 45-MW Nimoo-Bazgo hydropower project on the Indus River by India, after Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani approved challenging the project in the International Court of Arbitration (ICA)'.

Daily Times (18 July 2012) reported that the federal government had decided not to file a lawsuit in the Permanent Court of Arbitration-International Court of Arbitration (PCA-ICA) in Hague regarding its concerns and grievances over the controversial 45MW Nimoo-Bazgo hydroelectric power project.

Annexure C of the Indus Waters Treaty is about India's right to divert certain amount of water in certain months from the Western Rivers given to Pakistan. There is also no bar on the building of water storage for electricity production or any other non-consumptive use on Western Rivers (Annexure E). If anyone complains in Pakistan about India building dams and taking some water out of our rivers, he speaks out of ignorance.

Brahma Chellaney in his book Water: Asia's New Battleground (Harper/Collins 2011) remarks: 'Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi told a national news conference in April 2010 and said: "Is India stealing that water from you? No, it is not. Please do not fool yourself and do not misguide the nation. We are mismanaging that water". Despite his confession, the Pakistani government has continued to spotlight water as a contentious bilateral matter. One possible reason for its raking up the water issue in recent years is that it helps Pakistan to redirect attention away from India's focus on cross-border terrorism emanating from Pakistani territory as the core concern' (p.223).

Brahma Chellaney, one of India's leading strategic thinkers and analysts, is a professor at the Centre for Policy
Research in New Delhi. He has served as a member of the Policy Advisory Group headed by the foreign minister
of India, and as an adviser to India's National Security Council.

Dead Reckoning: Memories of the 1971 Bangladesh War

This ground-breaking book chronicles the 1971 war in South Asia by reconstituting the memories of those on opposing sides of the conflict. 1971 was marked by a bitter civil war within Pakistan and war between India and Pakistan, backed respectively by the Soviet Union and the United States. It was fought over the territory of East Pakistan, which seceded to become Bangladesh. Through a detailed investigation of events on the ground, Sarmila Bose contextualises and humanises the war while analysing what the events reveal about the nature of the conflict itself. The story of 1971 has so far been dominated by the narrative of the victorious side. All parties to the war are still largely imprisoned by wartime partisan mythologies. Bose reconstructs events via interviews conducted in Bangladesh and Pakistan, published and unpublished reminiscences in Bengali and English of participants on all sides, official documents, foreign media reports and other sources. Her book challenges assumptions about the nature of the conflict, and exposes the ways in which the 1971 war is still playing out in the region.

Editorial Reviews


'A truth about the Bangladesh war is that remarkably few scholars and historians have given it thorough, independent scrutiny. Bose's research has taken her from the archives to interviews with elderly peasants in Bangladesh and retired army officers in Pakistan. Her findings are significant.'
 - Ian Jack, The Guardian 

'History emerges only slowly from the passion-filled context of contemporary events. Sarmila Bose's book sets Bangladesh's liberation struggle at the start of this long passage.' 
 - Professor David Washbrook, Trinity College, Cambridge 

'Finally we have a book that investigates the conflicts of 1971 using facts and testimonies from all sides. 

Some may find this search for the truth controversial, but the official histories, full of absurd exaggerations and one-sided claims, are the ones that truly demean the sacrifices of 1971... The painful task of recognizing historical evidence has surely begun.'
 - Mushtaq H. Khan, Professor of Economics, SOAS 

'Powerful and poignant ... this is history as told by participants at the grass roots and it dispels many myths that have been fed by faulty memories of the so-called elites in Pakistan and Bangladesh. Dead Reckoning should help the people of both countries accept the facts of that tragic and bloody separation of 1971 and take responsibility for the war that stained the verdant Bengali countryside red.'
 - Shuja Nawaz, author of Crossed Swords: Pakistan, Its Army, and the Wars Within --

Product Description

This ground-breaking book chronicles and analyzes the 1971 war in South Asia by reconstituting the memories of those on opposing sides of the conflict. 1971 was marked by a bitter civil war within Pakistan and war between India and Pakistan, backed respectively by the Soviet Union and the United States. It was fought over the territory of East Pakistan, which seceded to become Bangladesh. Through a detailed investigation of events on the ground, Sarmila Bose contextualises and humanizes the war while analysing what the events revealed about the nature of the conflict itself. The story of 1971 has so far been dominated by the narrative of the victorious side. 

All parties to the war are still largely imprisoned by wartime partisan mythologies. Bose reconstructs events using extensive interviews conducted in Bangladesh and Pakistan, published and unpublished reminiscences in Bengali and English of participants on all sides, official documents, foreign media reports and other sources. The chronicling of events through a multiplicity of memories reveals what had been previously unknown or poorly recorded. Moreover, 'contesting' memories reveal a reality diverging from the dominant narrative in crucial ways. It challenges assumptions about the nature of the conflict, and exposes the ways in which the 1971 conflict is still playing out in the region. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By Human 
Most of Bangladesh war history has been written in a patriotic narrative which completely ignores the excesses committed by other sides. This war was fought between four sides, on one side were the Indian Army and the Bengali militants (terrorists) and on the other side were Pakistan Army and the nationalists comprising of Bengalis, Biharis and the west Pakistanis. Like any war, excesses were done on both sides. This book gives an impartial view on the excesses. The only thing missing in this book are the details of terrorism excercised by Indian army as a war tactic in their covert operations. As a witness to this war, I find this book fair and recommend it to all who want to get a balanced view of this historic event.

The truth about the Jessore massacre

The massacre may have been genocide, but it wasn’t committed by the Pakistan army. The dead men were non-Bengali residents of Jessore, butchered in broad daylight by Bengali nationalists, reports Sarmila Bose
BITTER TRUTH: Civilians massacred in Jessore in 1971 ? but by whom?
RECOGNITION DENIED: Father and son killed in Dhaka in 1971
The bodies lie strewn on the ground. All are adult men, in civilian clothes. A uniformed man with a rifle slung on his back is seen on the right. A smattering of onlookers stand around, a few appear to be working, perhaps to remove the bodies. The caption of the photo is just as grim as its content: ‘April 2, 1971: Genocide by the Pakistan Occupation Force at Jessore.’ It is in a book printed by Bangladeshis trying to commemorate the victims of their liberation war.
It is a familiar scene. There are many grisly photographs of dead bodies from 1971, published in books, newspapers and websites. Reading another book on the 1971 war, there was that photograph again ? taken from a slightly different angle, but the bodies and the scene of the massacre were the same. But wait a minute! The caption here reads: ‘The bodies of businessmen murdered by rebels in Jessore city.’
The alternative caption is in The East Pakistan Tragedy, by L.F. Rushbrook Williams, written in 1971 before the independence of Bangladesh. Rushbrook Williams is strongly in favour of the Pakistan government and highly critical of the Awami League. However, he was a fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, had served in academia and government in India, and with the BBC and The Times. There was no reason to think he would willfully mislabel a photo of a massacre.
And so, in a bitter war where so many bodies had remained unclaimed, here is a set of murdered men whose bodies are claimed by both sides of the conflict! Who were these men? And who killed them? It turns out that the massacre in Jessore may have been genocide, but it wasn’t committed by the Pakistan army. The dead men were non-Bengali residents of Jessore, butchered in broad daylight by Bengali nationalists.
It is but one incident, but illustrative of the emerging reality that the conflict in 1971 in East Pakistan was a lot messier than most have been led to believe. Pakistan’s military regime did try to crush the Bengali rebellion by force, and many Bengalis did die for the cause of Bangladesh’s independence. Yet, not every allegation hurled against the Pakistan army was true, while many crimes committed in the name of Bengali nationalism remain concealed. Once one took a second look, some of the Jessore bodies are dressed in salwar kameez? an indication that they were either West Pakistanis or ‘Biharis’, the non-Bengali East Pakistanis who had migrated from northern India.
As accounts from the involved parties Pakistan, Bangladesh and India tend to be highly partisan, it was best to search for foreign eye witnesses, if any. My search took me to newspaper archives from 35 years ago. The New York Times carried the photo on April 3, 1971, captioned: ‘East Pakistani civilians, said to have been slain by government soldiers, lie in Jessore square before burial.’ The Washington Post carried it too, right under its masthead: ‘The bodies of civilians who East Pakistani sources said were massacred by the Pakistani army lie in the streets of Jessore.’ “East Pakistani sources said”, and without further investigation, these august newspapers printed the photo.
In fact, if the Americans had read The Times of London of April 2 and Sunday Times of April 4 or talked to their British colleagues, they would have had a better idea of what was happening in Jessore. In a front-page lead article on April 2 entitled ‘Mass Slaughter of Punjabis in East Bengal,’ The Times war correspondent Nicholas Tomalin wrote an eye-witness account of how he and a team from the BBC programme Panorama saw Bengali troops and civilians march 11 Punjabi civilians to the market place in Jessore where they were then massacred. “Before we were forced to leave by threatening supporters of Shaikh Mujib,” wrote Tomalin, “we saw another 40 Punjabi “spies” being taken towards the killing ground?”
Tomalin followed up on April 4 in Sunday Times with a detailed description of the “mid-day murder” of Punjabis by Bengalis, along with two photos ? one of the Punjabi civilians with their hands bound at the Jessore headquarters of the East Pakistan Rifles (a Bengal formation which had mutinied and was fighting on the side of the rebels), and another of their dead bodies lying in the square. He wrote how the Bengali perpetrators tried to deceive them and threatened them, forcing them to leave. As other accounts also testify, the Bengali “irregulars” were the only ones in central Jessore that day, as the Pakistan government forces had retired to their cantonment.
Though the military action had started in Dhaka on March 25 night, most of East Pakistan was still out of the government’s control. Like many other places, “local followers of Sheikh Mujib were in control” in Jessore at that time. Many foreign media reported the killings and counter-killings unleashed by the bloody civil war, in which the army tried to crush the Bengali rebels and Bengali nationalists murdered non-Bengali civilians.
Tomalin records the local Bengalis’ claim that the government soldiers had been shooting earlier and he was shown other bodies of people allegedly killed by army firing. But the massacre of the Punjabi civilians by Bengalis was an event he witnessed himself. Tomalin was killed while covering the Yom Kippur war of 1973, but his eye-witness accounts solve the mystery of the bodies of Jessore.
There were, of course, genuine Bengali civilian victims of the Pakistan army during 1971. Chandhan Sur and his infant son were killed on March 26 along with a dozen other men in Shankharipara, a Hindu area in Dhaka. The surviving members of the Sur family and other residents of Shankharipara recounted to me the dreadful events of that day. Amar, the elder son of the dead man, gave me a photo of his father and brother’s bodies, which he said he had come upon at a Calcutta studio while a refugee in India. The photo shows a man’s body lying on his back, clad in a lungi, with the infant near his feet.
Amar Sur’s anguish about the death of his father and brother (he lost a sister in another shooting incident) at the hands of the Pakistan army is matched by his bitterness about their plight in independent Bangladesh. They may be the children of a ‘shaheed,’ but their home was declared ‘vested property’ by the Bangladesh government, he said, in spite of documents showing that it belonged to his father. Even the Awami League ? support for whom had cost this Hindu locality so many lives in 1971 ? did nothing to redress this when they formed the government.
In the book 1971: documents on crimes against humanity committed by Pakistan army and their agents in Bangladesh during 1971, published by the Liberation War Museum, Dhaka, I came across the same photo of the Sur father and son’s dead bodies. It is printed twice, one a close-up of the child only, with the caption: ‘Innocent women were raped and then killed along with their children by the barbarous Pakistan Army’. Foreigners might just have mistaken the ‘lungi’ worn by Sur for a ‘saree’, but surely Bangladeshis can tell a man in a ‘lungi’ when they see one! And why present the same ‘body’ twice?
The contradictory claims on the photos of the dead of 1971 reveal in part the difficulty of recording a messy war, but also illustrate vividly what happens when political motives corrupt the cause of justice and humanity. The political need to spin a neat story of Pakistani attackers and Bengali victims made the Bengali perpetrators of the massacre of Punjabi civilians in Jessore conceal their crime and blame the army. The New York Times and The Washington Post “bought” that story too. The media’s reputation is salvaged in this case by the even-handed eye-witness reports of Tomalin in The Times and Sunday Times.
As for the hapless Chandhan Sur and his infant son, the political temptation to smear the enemy to the maximum by accusing him of raping and killing women led to Bangladeshi nationalists denying their own martyrs their rightful recognition. In both cases, the true victims ?Punjabis and Bengalis, Hindus and Muslims ? were cast aside, their suffering hijacked, by political motivations of others that victimised them a second time around.


India lied about 1971: Sarmila Bose

20,000 Pakistani Soldiers Could Not Have Raped 400,000 Women – Sharmila Bose

12 November 2010

Netaji Subhash Bose - arriving at 1939 AICC me...
Netaji Shuvash Chandra Bose

Ms. Sarmila Bose is the niece of the famous Bharati leader Netaji Shuvash Chandra Bose. Mrs. Bose is married to Alan Rosling, a British man. He is the Executive Director of Tata, one of India. Sharmila Bose is also the sister of the Indian scholar Sugata Bose who with his partner, the Pakistani scholar, Ayesha Jalal teaches at Tufts University in Boston. Both are well-known academics in the US circuit.

Ms. Sharmila Bose in her paper entitled “Losing the Victims: Problems of Using Women as Weapons in Recounting the Bangladesh War”  paints a picture of the Pakistani military as a disciplined force that spared women and children. She writes:

During my field research on several incidents in East Pakistan during 1971, Bangladeshi participants and eyewitnesses described battles, raids, massacres and executions, but told me that women were not harmed by the army in these events except by chance such as in crossfire. The pattern that emerged from these incidents was that the Pakistan army targeted adult males while sparing women and children.

She also quotes the passage from the Hamoodur Rahman Commission Report that I cited above to support her assertion that so many rapes could not have occurred. 20,000-34,000 could not have raped 200,000 to 400,000 women in the space of nine months.
She states in the introduction:

That rape occurred in East Pakistan in 1971 has never been in any doubt. The question is what was the true extent of rape, who were the victims and who the perpetrators and was there any systematic policy of rape by any party, as opposed to opportunistic sexual crimes in times of war.

To try to bolster her argument that the Pakistani forces in Bangladesh could not have raped so many women, she claims:

The number of West Pakistani armed forces personnel in East Pakistan was about 20,000 at the beginning of the conflict, rising to 34,000 by December. Another 11,000 men — civil police and non-combat personnel — also held arms. For an army of 34,000 to rape on this scale in eight or nine months (while fighting insurgency, guerrilla war and an invasion by India), each would-be perpetrator would have had to commit rape at an incredible rate.

There are numerous reports out there now which negates the well established beliefs. The declassified US reports, Indian military officers account, Pakistan military officers account, General Niazi’s memoirs, Sharmila Bose, Hamoodurahman commission report. Pakistan Military officers fought hard. Many foreign correspondents speak well of their bravery. It is the bravery of a Muslim soldier that Indian Military got tough fight. These Pakistani soldiers fought so hard that they had almost regained the control of East Pakistan from the dirty hands of Mukt-Bahini. When India saw this, it started the military action which resulted in the fall of Dhaka.

Then Mujib showed his true colors after the formation of Bangladesh with his BAKSAL party. How he became authoritative and usurped democracy is not a secret anymore. He was going to make Bangladesh part of India that he was killed timely by the Pakistani military officers (yes those Bengalis who never gave up allegiance to Pakistan. I stand in honor for them).

Sarmila Bose: Myth-busting the Bangladesh war of 1971 (rejecting the Indian narrative)

May 10, 2011

An author discusses her new book about the historical narratives of the 1971 civil war that broke up East Pakistan.

Guerilla fighters of the Mukti Bahini prepare to bayonet men who collaborated with the Pakistani army during East Pakistan's fight to become the independent state of Bangladesh [GALLO/GETTY] 

Last month, Al Jazeera published an article titled Book, film greeted with fury among Bengalis. Here, Sarmila Bose, author of Dead Reckoning: Memories of the 1971 Bangladesh War, responds to the criticism levelled at her work.

In all the excitement about the "Arab spring" it is instructive to remember the 1971 war in South Asia. Then too there was a military regime in Pakistan, easily identified as the "baddies" - and a popular uprising in its rebellious Eastern province, where Bengali nationalists were reported to be peacefully seeking freedom, democracy and human rights. When the regime used military force to crush the rebellion in East Pakistan, India intervened like a knight to the rescue, resulting in the defeat of the bad guys, victory for the good guys and the independence of Bangladesh... Or so the story went for forty years. I grew up with it in Calcutta. It was widely repeated in the international press.

Several years ago I decided to chronicle a number of incidents of the 1971 war in-depth. I observed that many Bangladeshis were aggrieved that the world seemed to have forgotten the terrible trauma of the birth of their nation. Given the scale of the suffering, that lack of memory certainly appeared to be unfair, but there did not seem to be many detailed studies of the war - without which the world could not be expected to remember, or understand, what had happened in 1971.

My aim was to record as much as possible of what seemed to be a much-commented-on but poorly documented conflict - and to humanise it, so that the war could be depicted in terms of the people who were caught up in it, and not just faceless statistics. I hoped that the detailed documentation of what happened at the human level on the ground would help to shed some light on the conflict as a whole.

The principal tool of my study was memories. I read all available memoirs and reminiscences, in both English and Bengali. But I also embarked on extensive fieldwork, finding and talking to people who were present at many particular incidents, whether as participants, victims or eye-witnesses. Crucially, I wanted to hear the stories from multiple sources, including people on different sides of the war, so as to get as balanced and well-rounded a reconstruction as possible.

As soon as I started to do systematic research on the 1971 war, I found that there was a problem with the story which I had grown up believing: from the evidence that emanated from the memories of all sides at the ground level, significant parts of the "dominant narrative" seem not to have been true. Many "facts" had been exaggerated, fabricated, distorted or concealed. Many people in responsible positions had repeated unsupported assertions without a thought; some people seemed to know that the nationalist mythologies were false and yet had done nothing to inform the public. I had thought I would be chronicling the details of the story of 1971 with which I had been brought up, but I found instead that there was a different story to be told.

Product of research

My book Dead Reckoning: Memories of the 1971 Bangladesh War, the product of several years of fieldwork based research, has just been published (Hurst and Co. and Columbia University Press). It focuses on the bitter fratricidal war within the province of East Pakistan over a period of a little more than a year, rather than the open "hot" war between India and Pakistan towards the end. It brings together, for the first time, the memories of dozens of people from each side of the conflict who were present in East Pakistan during the war. It lets the available evidence tell the stories. It has been described as a work that "will set anew the terms of debate" about this war.

Even before anyone has had the chance to read it, Dead Reckoning has been attracting comment, some of it of a nature that according to an observer would make the very reception of my book a subject of "taboo studies". "Myth-busting" works that undermine nationalist mythology, especially those that have gone unchallenged for several decades, are clearly not to be undertaken by the faint-hearted. The book has received gratifying praise from scholars and journalists who read the advance copies, but the word "courageous" cropped up with ominous frequency in many of the reviews. 

Some scholars praised my work in private; others told me to prepare for the flak that was bound to follow. One "myth-busting" scholar was glad my book was out at last, as I would now sweep up at the unpopularity stakes and she would get some respite after enduring several years of abuse. Scholars and investigative journalists have an important role in "busting" politically partisan narratives. And yet, far too often we all fall for the seductive appeal of a simplistic "good versus evil" story, or fail to challenge victors' histories.

So far the story of valiant rebels fighting oppressive dictators in the so-called "Arab spring" has had one significant blemish - the vicious sexual attack and attempted murder of CBS foreign correspondent Lara Logan by dozens of men celebrating the downfall of Hosni Mubarak in Tahrir Square in Cairo. It initially vanished from the headlines and has still not led to the kind of questioning of the representation of such conflicts that it should have generated. "Tahrir Square" became shorthand for freedom and democracy-loving people rising up against oppressive dictators.

People in other countries started to say they wanted their own "Tahrir Square". Logan has given a brave and graphic account of what happened to her at the hands of those supposedly celebrating the fall of a dictator and the coming of freedom, democracy and human rights. Her life was saved by burqa-clad Egyptian women and she was rescued by soldiers. Her account endows "Tahrir Square" with an entirely different meaning.

It should caution us against assuming that all those opposing an oppressive regime are champions of non-violence, democracy or human rights. It should alert us to the complexities of political power struggles and civil war, and stop getting carried away by what we imagine is happening, or would like to happen, rather than what the evidence supports.

Such was the impact of the 1971 war on South Asians that the year has transformed into a shorthand for its particular symbolism: 1971, or ekattor, the number 71 in Bengali, has come to stand for a simple equation of a popular nationalist uprising presumed to embody liberal democratic values battling brutal repression by a military dictatorship. But was it really as simple as that? Over time, the victorious Bangladeshi nationalist side's narrative of Pakistani villainy and Bengali victimhood became entrenched through unquestioned repetition.

The losing side of Pakistani nationalists had its own myth-making, comprising vast Indian plots. Pakistan had been carved out of the British Empire in India as a homeland for South Asia's Muslims. It was a problematic idea from the start - a large proportion of Muslims chose to remain in secular and pluralistic India, for instance, and its two parts, West Pakistan and East Pakistan, were separated by a thousand miles of a hostile India. In 1971 the idea of Islam as the basis of nationhood came apart in South Asia along with the country of Pakistan, after a mere 23 years of existence. What went wrong? And what do the memories of those who were there reveal about the reality of that war?

The publication of Dead Reckoning has spoiled the day for those who had been peddling their respective nationalist mythologies undisturbed for so long. Careers have been built - in politics, media, academia and development - on a particular telling of the 1971 war. All the warring parties of 1971 remain relentlessly partisan in recounting the conflict. As the dominant narrative, which has gained currency around the world, is that of the victorious Bangladeshi nationalists and their Indian allies, they stand to lose the most in any unbiased appraisal. Unsurprisingly therefore, the protests from this section are the shrillest.

Mixed reaction

The reaction to the publication of Dead Reckoning by those who feel threatened by it has followed a predictable path. First, there has been an attempt to damn the book before it was even available. Apart from random rants on the internet - which provides opportunity for anyone to rail against anything - reports have been written by people who haven't read the book, citing other people who also haven't read the book. The reason for this may be summed up as the well-founded fear of "knowledge is power".

When people read the book they will be far better informed as to what really happened in 1971. Hence the desperate attempt by those who have been spinning their particular yarns for so long to try to smear the book before anyone gets the chance to read it. A few people also seem to be trying to laud the book before reading it, an equally meaningless exercise. These commentaries are easy to dismiss: clearly, those who haven't read the book have nothing of value to say about it.

Second, detractors of the book claim that it exonerates the military from atrocities committed in East Pakistan in 1971. In reality the book details over several chapters many cases of atrocities committed by the regime's forces, so anyone who says it excuses the military's brutalities is clearly lying. The question is - why are they lying about something that will easily be found out as soon as people start reading the book? The answer to this question is more complex than it might seem. Of course the detractors hope that by making such claims they will stop people from reading the book.

Part of the answer lies also in that the book corrects some of the absurd exaggerations about the army's actions with which Bangladeshi nationalists had happily embellished their stories of "villainous" Pakistanis for all these years. But an important reason for falsely claiming that the book exonerates the military is to distract attention from the fact that it also chronicles the brutalities by their own side, committed in the name of Bengali nationalism. The nature and scale of atrocities committed by the "nationalist" side had been edited out of the dominant narrative. Its discovery spoils the "villains versus innocents" spin of Bangladeshi nationalist mythology.

A key question about the "controversy" over Dead Reckoning is why this book is stirring such passions when other works do not. One reason for this is that there are precious few studies of the 1971 war based on dispassionate research. This is the first book-length study that reconstructs the violence of the war at the ground-level, utilising multiple memories from all sides of the conflict.

Two eminent US historians, Richard Sisson and Leo Rose, published the only research-based study of the war at the diplomatic and policy level twenty years ago. Their excellent book, War and Secession: Pakistan, India and the Creation of Bangladesh (University of California Press, 1990), challenged the dominant narrative, but their work does not seem to be known among the general public as much as within academia.

However, a crucial reason for the special impact of Dead Reckoning has to do with who the author is. I am a Bengali, from a nationalist family in India. As Indians and Bengalis our sympathies had been firmly with the liberation struggle in Bangladesh in 1971. The dominant narrative of the 1971 war is the story as told by "my side", as it were. My reporting of what I actually found through my research, rather than unquestioningly repeating the partisan narrative or continuing the conspiracy of silence over uncomfortable truths, is thus taken as a "betrayal" by those who have profited for so long from mythologising the history of 1971.

It is important to note that not all South Asians subscribe to the myth-making. One eminent Indian journalist thought that my "courage, disregard for orthodoxy and meticulous research" in writing Dead Reckoning made me "the enfant terrible of Indian historians". A senior Bangladeshi scholar has found it "fitting that someone with Sarmila's links with Bengali nationalism should demonstrate that political values cannot be furthered by distorting history."

South Asians are prone to conjuring up all manner of conspiracy theories when faced with unpleasant realities, but those looking for one for Dead Reckoning are at a loss, as the only explanation for what it contains is that it reconstructs what really happened on the basis of available evidence. The process of dismantling entrenched nationalist mythologies can be painful for those who have much vested in them, but the passions stirred by the publication of Dead Reckoning has sparked the debate that the 1971 war badly needed - and set on the right course the discussion of this bitter and brutal fratricidal war that split the only homeland created for Muslims in the modern world.

Highly reputed and respected scholar Sharmila Bose, educated at Harvard University and currectly Senior Research Fellow at Oxford University, was honorably hosted as the main speaker by the prestigious Wodroow Wilson International Center for Scholars located just about a couple of blocks away from the White House in Washington DC. The seminar was organized to introduce her new book `Dead Reckoning: Memories of 1971 Bangladesh War’.

 She is a senior research fellow at the Department of Politics and International Relations at Oxford University. Her principal interest lies in the politics and policies of South Asia, and her current work addresses the practice of democracy in India and conflict and governance in the tribal areas of India and Pakistan. Bose was the inaugural director of the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism in Oxford’s Department of Politics and International Relations from 2006 to 2008. Previously she taught and held research positions at Harvard, George Washington University, University of Warwick and the Tata Institute of Social Sciences. Dr Bose had also served as a journalist with posts as assistant editor and senior political writer with the Ananda Bazar Patrika Group of newspapers in India.

According to A. Dirk Moses of the European University Institute, distinguished scholar Sharmila Bose’s book `Dead Reckoning’ is at once a correction of the record and a tribute to the virtues of humanistic scholarships written with courage and sharing honesty, it will set anew the terms of debate about this dark chapter in the region’s history.

Stephen Cohen, the author of `The Idea of Pakistan’, who was also present at the program says on record ~Combining rigorous scholarships and a passionate interest in setting the record straight, `Dead Reckoning’ is the finest study yet of the social, cultural and political meaning of the 1971 East Pakistan/Bangladesh war. Bose writes in the service of the truth. We are in her debt.”

Among the distinguished participants in the discussion were Ambassador William B Milam (in Dhaka), Senior Policy Scholar at Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington DC, Stephen Cohen, a renowned scholar at Brookings Institute, Dr Mohammaed Quashem, Professor at Howard University in Washington DC, Dr Khandaker Mansur, Senior Officer at the Census Bureau of US Federal Government

New Jersy resident Dr Nurunnabi raised his unsubstantiated viewpoint of killing of 3 million people and raping 2,00,000 women by Pakistani soldiers during the 1971 war. These numbers were rejected by Sharmila Bose as wild imagination. 
The program was attended by many well known Awami League activists, who patiently listened to her presentation without causing any disruption. 

Representatives from Bangla service of Voice of America, Bangladesh Embassy and correspondents of Bangla newspapers were present. Arnold Zeitlin, who moderated the program was AP Bureau Chief in Pakistan in 1971, is currently Managing Director of Editorial Research and Reporting Associates, a Varginia based media consulting firm. He is also a visiting professor at Guangdong University in China. He was the director of Asian Center of the Freedom Forum in Hong Kong.

New impartial evidence debunks 1971 rape allegations against Pakistan Army

New impartial evidence debunks 1971 rape allegations against Pakistan Army

A study of the 1971 conflict by an Indian academic, Prof Sarmila Bose, says the Pakistan army personnel did not rape Bengali women as has been widely alleged by Indian and Bangladeshi writers. While Prof Bose’s study focuses on certain specific cases, the finding is very interesting, based as it is on extensive interviews with eyewitnesses. The study also determines the pattern of conflict as three-layered: West Pakistan versus East Pakistan, East Pakistanis (pro-Independence) versus East Pakistanis (pro-Union) and the fateful war between India and Pakistan.

As Prof Bose has noted, no prior study of the conflict has been done. What we have are narratives that strengthen one point of view by rubbishing contending viewpoints. The Bangladeshi meta-narrative, for instance, focuses on the rape issue and uses that not only to demonise the Pakistan army but also exploit it as a symbol of why it was important to break away from (West) Pakistan. Indeed, the sheer number of Bangladeshi women raped is placed in the millions, a fact to which the Hamoodur Rehman Commission Report also referred and declared as absurd. Even so, over the years the charge of rape has stuck to the Pakistan army and weighed it down in moral terms. Prof Bose, a Bengali herself and belonging to the family of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, has done a remarkable job of investigating the charge and paving the way for independent scholars to probe the issue further.

Prof Bose, who unveiled her study at a US State Department conference convened to mark the release of declassified US government documents from that period, also spoke about the violence generated by all sides. “The civil war of 1971 was fought between those who believed they were fighting for a united Pakistan and those who believed their chance for justice and progress lay in an independent Bangladesh. Both were legitimate political positions. All parties in this conflict embraced violence as a means to the end, all committed acts of brutality outside accepted norms of warfare, and all had their share of humanity. These attributes make the 1971 conflict particularly suitable for efforts towards reconciliation, rather than recrimination,” says Prof Bose.

It goes to Prof Bose’s credit that while studying the conflict she retained her professionalism and integrity, two essential traits normally absent in studies done of that period by all sides. Under the circumstances, if she wants to explore the issue further the Pakistan army should not hesitate to give her access to raw material in its archives so that she can expand her work. Indeed, here’s the Pakistan army’s chance to wash this stigma off it once and for all. We are reasonably sure that elements within Bangladesh — and even India — will criticise Bose’s study because it goes against the grain of Bangladeshi nationalism. But this will not take away from its impartialness and significance.
