Do you not realize the founder of Pakistan was Shia? Yes, Muhammad Ali Jinnah was Shia, but he never wanted Pakistan to become a theocracy. Probably, because he knew humanity was hateful and would most likely taint the purity of our religion. Just as they are doing at the moment, harming others in the name of religion.
"You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed — that has nothing to do with the business of the State. As you know, history shows that in England, conditions, some time ago, were much worse than those prevailing in India today. The Roman Catholics and the Protestants persecuted each other. Even now there are some States in existence where there are discriminations made and bars imposed against a particular class. Thank God, we are not starting in those days. We are starting in the days where there is no discrimination, no distinction between one community and another, no discrimination between one caste or creed and another. We are starting with this fundamental principle that we are all citizens and equal citizens of one State."
- Mohammad Ali Jinnah; Address to the Constituent Assembly (1947)
Beautifully made video by Shafkat Amanat Ali to his father Amanat Ali Khan and his song Aye Wattan Pyaray Wattan (My Country, My Beautiful Country). True patriotism, I wish I could celebrate Pakistani Independence day in Pakistan like this.
