Respected Dr. Sahab
Thank you for reminding me about the real face of the N2I chief Mullah Maududi.
I have a copy of what you have written and I use these facts to substantiate my arguments in presenting the true face of Maududi. This is the face the nation needs to know but finds it hard to digest.I had to face the wrath of the Jamiat goons in College but I never allowed them to have their way. It is very difficult to tell the nation about this man. Most of the blind followers have no knowledge of his writings retort by emotional accusations and labels. Sir, you are right. A spade has to be called a spade. I did not mean that truth should be concealed, only that it should be presented in a logical and convincing way like you do. I also meant to tell the contributors to avoid foul language. Emotional outbursts never achieve the desired results. Sir, I know that the great Perwez Sahab cannot be compared to the deceiver Maududi by any stretch of imagination. What pains me is the fact that the late Prof. Rafiullah Shahab had exposed Maududi's plagiarism of Dy. Nazir Ahmed's translation of the Quran .The late Prof. realized this when he was asked to take a handbag of notes and books to Maududi in prison. Prof. Shahab was a Jamiat leader in those days and parted ways with the Jamaat like Dr. Israr, Ghamidi Sahab and Amin Islahi. All this is on record and yet people are not willing to listen to reason. How do we deal with such a mindset ? In contemporary Pakistan the Jamaati Mullahs and their ilk are pushing the nation to the Dark ages and people like us ,despite their best efforts, are ending up in a block canyon. Even the newspaper and the media are of no help. Fear has gripped the whole society and it is becoming very difficult to tell the truth.
With such a disappointing environment I feel that the truth will not prevail in the lifetime of my generation. This is what i meant that ultimately Quranic teachings , principles and values will prevail and the real worth of great scholars and guides like Perwez Sahab and you Dr. Sahab will be realized.
