Can the family of a Pakistani PM visit #Bangladesh & spend a week visiting as guests of the state & be celebrated by the Bengali upperclass? How many years does it take to forgive & forget mass rape, murder & economic subjugation? Is 70 years the magic number? 1/n

#royalvisit
Is our culture that forgiving? Sure guests should always be honored but what if those guests belong to a tribe that took away EVERYTHING from our forefathers? Perhaps those celebrating are the same people who remained their junior partners in crime. The British Raj was brutal 2/n
Millions of our fellow countrymen perished for no fault of their own. Still diplomatic norms dictate we show respect for int’l guests, as no one is innocent really. But do we have to sing & dance in the streets when our hearts feel lingering pain caused by their actions 3/n

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.

“Alexander has’nt yet seen other bank of Vyas
If he successfully faces brave🇮🇳states beyond & yonder still
the powerful empire of Magadh,
yet remain alive,I shall consider.
He may behead me but can’t kill my soul”

Plutarch gives full text of this #Brahmin ‘s fearless reply

Alexander realized, #Brahmins exerted powerful influences upon the governments of🇮🇳Republics,
that tongues of these fearless Brahmins were sharper than Khatriya swords.

Before beheading one he asked,
why he instigated a certain-ruler against him & came the reply👇🏻
