I find the following article quite rational.what type of politicians we have as
our leaders in Pakistan. Today 's sajda (prostration )at Pak patten is another shameful story of a would be prime
minister .کرسی کی محبت میں ہم
آشفتہ سر وں نےوہ سجدے بھی
کیے ہیں جو واجب بھی نہیں تھے
۔عابدہ رحمانی
Can a married woman in her fifties, mother of 5
adult children and grandchildren, belonging to a modest,
conservative Muslim religious family background of Pakistan
dare to enter into a romantic relationship with another man,
dating him over a period of more than 2 years? Would not it
be against the social and cultural norms of the society?
Well, it would be quite a daring step, more so for a woman
if she happens to claim to be a religious scholar or a
spiritual healer; a woman who strictly observes veil
too.
I ask the readers this question, would they
easily digest it if this is about their daughter, sister or
mother? More so, if she says that the prophet Muhammad has
asked her in dream to get divorce from her husband of 25
years and marry another rich man, notorious for his marriage
stints and scandals. Would you sanction the marriage or
get her sanctioned in a mental asylum? Would not it be
blasphemy against the prophet?
I am talking of the veiled lady who may become
the first lady of Pakistan if her husband succeeds in the
forthcoming “General’s selections”. To me, she needs
to hide behind her veil not out of piety but shame that she
developed (an illicit) relationship while being in a
committed relationship.
Imran-Pinky affair has opened many vistas of
reflection on the society of Pakistan where at every tier,
there is a dichotomy between the beliefs and real life. It
also has brought about a very dangerous mindset of a man who
is a would be PM of Pakistan. Critics of IK politics have
cited his lying, manipulation, hypocrisy, U-Turns,
bulldozing dissent, living on other people’s money, etc.
but there is another facet of his personality highlighted by
his latest marriage.
Quran and teachings of Islam strictly prohibit
free mixing of opposite sexes. It asks both men and women to
be modest. [al-Noor 24:30] [Ghaafir 40:19], etc. IK in every
political talk sounds more like a preacher than a
politician. The lady is on record of visiting and staying
alone at IK residence (as his spiritual guide) at least 2
years before they dressed their relationship in the
religious attire. They openly violated all the religious
dictates which they claim to profess and
defend.
This affair speaks very dangerously of a man who
is vying to lead the nation of Pakistan to be easily
hoodwinked by a woman claiming to hold some talisman and
supernatural powers! She solved the problem by bringing the
prophet in their dreams to get divorce and marry Imran Khan.
What if tomorrow as PM, IK gets convinced that she is
visited by the prophet to order a nuclear war on the enemies
of Islam?
We have seen sermons of Tahirul Qadri telling
people on stage that he hosted prophet Muhammad in Lahore
and that he bought the prophet a flight ticket back to
Saudi Arab when he decided to return! Nobody questioned such
non-sense that one the one hand, the prophet visited the
heavens to meet Allah on a winged mule 14 centuries ago,
overnight; and in the 21st century he needed Tahirul Qadri
to buy him a plane ticket to go to Saudi
Arabia!!
So, you need to understand that magical thinking
is readily accepted by the believers, without question.
Harry Potter comes alive in Islam’s story
books.
There was nothing sacred about her dreams. Even
if she had visions, it represented her latent desires, as
the nature of this desire was too uncomfortable for her to
consciously admit in waking life. It is dangerous that an
ordinary woman was able to convince him that she holds some
talisman for the supernatural to work miracles. She found an
ingenious way to cover up her libido by claims of sacred
dreams! They both desired something which was socially,
morally and religiously unacceptable and would have been
hard to digest socially by the public. They both exhibited
a total lack of morality. She entered into a relationship
with a man and then demanded divorce from her husband of 25
years.
To sanctify their dubious relationship, they
needed the help of the highest religiously mandated person;
nobody other than the prophet. What a dangerous charlatan!
They are not representative of the society of Pakistan. They
are outliers on the social spectrum. The elements of the
deep state who are backing him needs to realise that they
are betting on a deranged horse.
IK marriage saga shows that the aspirant
Pakistani PM believes in magical thinking instead of being a
scientific and rational thinker. It speaks dangerously of
the mental stability of a man who may be the PM of a nuclear
country.
