Feudalism giving rise to kufr...

Feudalism - pushing people to the limits of kufr...

Watch and be amazed. These are poor slaves of the Choudhries, Vaderas, Sardars or one like them. The feudals are not only doing what they are but also leading people to kufr by making them kiss their feet and hands. The video is self explanatory what can one say. Feudalism manifest. The guy does not stop them.
The people should only fear Allah and fear the law not a person. The way they are revering the guy sitting and some behind him, is mind boggling. I wouldn't say they are doing sajda but they are definitely kissing the guy's feet and hands. Why? He is just another mortal. It is the fear of retribution that makes the poor guy do what he does. This should not happen. Only the State should be supreme not some individuals.
I wonder why the religious parties do not take the lead in this issue instead of becoming the political spokesmen of the terrorists and make excuses for the killings and refusing to condemn the terrorism that has engulfed us. Why does this issue miss their notice? Is it deliberate or out of fear I demand to know.
Even the richest man of today cannot have so much land. So how did these people acquire so much land? The Brits gave them to keep people down and under control. That was colonial governance. Once the colonial power left we should have corrected the system. Most unfortunately we didn't. Ayub Khan thought of it as he writes in his book in his last days when it was too late. His successors were feudals themselves and visionless dictators.
Pervez Ilahi once said in some interview that he made a survey and discovered that in Punjab 96% people had land no more than 12.5 acres while the rest 4% enjoy land the size of which you cannot imagine. This video is testimony of the state of people on these lands.
When will our legislators think of bringing in laws to banish slavery and such acts if nothing to save people from the fire of hell? Wonder how feudalism can go? If our neighboring country one day younger can do it why not us? Are they any better intellectually than us? I think not. The difference is in sincerity, vision and love for your own people and the country.
All political parties must have on their manifesto Land Ceiling Act. Mr. Nawaz Sharif should concentrate on such issues instead of instigating one people to rise against the other. Such abusive, divisive and vendetta politics will not work. He is not being seen in good light of late. Be positive man. Do something good of far reaching consequence. This applies to other leaders too. Focus on structural reforms not cosmetic. Big people do big things like this and take every body along not exclude.
One way to abolish feudalism is by bringing in Land Ceiling Act and implement it by limiting rural land holding to no more than say 50 to 60 acres per head (India is now thinking of making it 18 according to Dawn). At one stroke feudalism will go. Feudalism is possible only by large land holdings so take land away from them and distribute among the poor.
Save the people, save the country and save them from kufr too. While it will create self employment it will throw up common man capable to get into parliaments and assemblies that will make good laws for people and the country and ensure true development.

Salman Taseer dead but the religious parties still reluctant to condemn...

Where will all this end?
See what Salman Taseer said:
Absurd interpretations of a person's statements confuses young minds. Taseer did not say that Asia did this or that. He simply pleaded for a pardon which is quite legitimate. People like Sahebzada, Ansar Abbasi, Munawar Hasan, FazlurRahman, Asadullah Bhutto are reluctant to condemn even such blatant murders. Nay some are even justifying by giving excuses.
For God's sake stop it and it won't until the so called Islamic guys make excuses for killings one way or the other. Condemn all killings unequivocally. Sometimes blaming America and sometimes something else and becoming the political spokesmen of the devil will not help. Only Allah save Pakistan and the Muslim world.
See for yourself if he said any thing wrong. All he said was he was forwarding an appeal to the President who has the power to pardon or not. He did not even say if the judgement was wrong. He said it is harsh though. But does it call for his murder? No. Never.
I don't think he was advocating any blasphemy. Even if he was he should have been tried and sentenced by court. This man had no business to take law in his hand. Violence is not acceptable.
We lost a capable guy who are very very few any way in the country. Sad. Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajioon. To Allah he belonged and to Allah he returned.
I have been watching the condemnations. The religious crowd has been conspicuous by its absence. It took a full 20 minutes for Hamid Mir to elicit a condemnation from Moulana Fazlurrahman. He was asked if he would condemn repeatedly but he kept beating around the bush giving different excuses and justifications until forced to he sort of conditionally condemned it.
If such people exist and exhort people to take law in their hands what do you expect? The other deviants Munawar Hasan etc. refused to comment. I did not see him on TV but I am told he sided with the killer. Did see though some Piracha of JI sort of condemning conditionally. One Sahebzada some religio not condemning but exulting same with professor Ibrahim of Peshawar. Brainless and pathetic. They have no idea the dangerous signals they are sending for the future generations and weak minds and uneducated so called mullas.
Like this, no one can have a difference of opinion in future. Even a difference of opinion will be seen as bravery. Height of ignorance indeed!
Sorry I know the leanings of JIs and an ex-JIs but couldn't help sharing this anguish. Why are the religious crowd so much anti-law? Fail to understand the machinations and justifications of terrorism. I am frankly disappointed at the religio crowd. I think they are equally culpable for creating this mindset. Can't the law take its course? Who gives the right to an individual to kill someone whatever the provocation supposed or real?
Salman Taseer, if he really said what he did or is it just a misunderstanding could have been taken to court tried and if found really guilty punished as per the law. This cold blooded murder. No.
