Tuesday, August 25, 2020 Pakistan not recognizin­g Israel Editor- in- Chief: Azfar Ashary Executive Editor: Manzar Naqvi Editor: Agha Masood Hussain Resident Editor ( Islamabad): Munawar Naqvi Editor- at- Large: Mohammed Arifeen P unlikely to instantly follow in the footmark of the UAE, its foremost regional ally. President Donald Trump's son- in- law and adviser Jared Kushner appealed that it would be in Riyadh's benefit to officially establish ties with Israel. In addition to that placing the kingdom in the limelight, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Israel was working on opening a corridor over Saudi Arabia for flights to the UAE. Saudi Arabia, the Arab world's largest economy and home to Islam's holiest sites, counter more tactful political working than the UAE. Not only would a diplomatic acceptance of Israel be seen by Palestinia­ns and their backers as a disloyalty of their motive, it would also cause pain the kingdom's image as the leader of the Islamic world. Saudi Arabia considers it necessary to not stabilize relations outside the structure of the Arab Peace Initiative that called for tackling the Palestinia­n issue. Saudi Arabia in the past gave a boost to the Arab Peace Initiative which called for Isr ael's entire withdrawal fr om the Palestinia­n territorie­s occupied after the Six- Day War of 1967, in return for peace and the full peaceful relations. In 2018, Riyadh silently opened its airspace for the first time for an Israel- bound passenger plane. akistan remains dedicated to the unity of Muslim Ummah and has always worked towards that objective. Pakistan will continue its efforts to keep the Muslim Ummah united. Pakistan- Saudi Arabia attachment started with Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi's protest of the OIC for its slow on summoning of a Council of Foreign Ministers' meeting on occupied Kashmir. Mr Qureshi had to call a meeting of the Muslim countries even outside the OIC setting, if the 57- member countries continued with its unwillingn­ess calling the Kashmir meeting. OIC played a strategic part by forming a contact group, appointing a special envoy of the secretary general on the disagreeme­nt, and passing a number of resolution­s denouncing Indian atrocities and continuing human rights violations in occupied Kashmir. The bitterness in tone on the OIC's role seems to have erased after Army Chief Gen Qamar Bajwa's recent visit to Saudi Arabia, where he met his military fellow and the deputy defence minister. Pakistan remains strongly devoted to the sovereignt­y and the territoria­l uprightnes­s of Saudi Arabia. Gen Bajwa's recent visit took place at an important time. The United Arab Emirates had sadly reached an agreement with Israel and the United States to formalize relationsh­ip with the Jewish state. More Arab countries would be regularizi­ng ties with Israel. The stories that Pakistan relations with Saudi Arabia have disenchant­ed are not correct. Army Chief Gen Bajwa travelled to Saudi Arabia for a one- day visit that was purely military- affairs concerned. On the Kashmir problem, there is a thinking that OIC should have come forward, Pr ime Minister I mran stated. Saudis should formulate their own foreign policy. Pakistan should not think that it want something Saudis will do j ust t hat. Quaid- i- Azam had stated in 1948 that Pakistan could not recognize Israel unless it grants f reedom t o Palestinia­ns. If Pakistan acknowledg­es Israel and disregard brutalitie­s f acing by t he Palestinia­ns, and then afterward it will have to give up the basis of Kashmir. PM denied that Pakistan- Saudi Arabia relations had been spoiled over Kashmir issue. The Prime Minister stated that Saudi Arabia is a key friend and relations are still friendly and unaltered. Palestine welcomed assertion by Prime Minister Imran Khan that Pakistan would not recognize Israel till the creation of Palestinia­n state. Following the creation of Pakistan every government has always backed the righteous cause of Palestine on all the meetings of the world. Palestinia­ns consider Pakistan their sec- ond mother country. The stand taken by Mr Imran Khan was in increase difference to the simple worded statement given by the Foreign Office on the recent announceme­nt of an agreement on stabilizat­ion of the United Arab EmiratesIs­rael ties. Saudi Arabia stated it will not go along behind the United Arab Emirates in starting diplomatic ties with Israel until the Jewish state has signed an internatio­nally acknowledg­e peace accord with the Palestinia­ns. The UAE past week became the first Gulf state to normalize relations with Israel, in a landmark US- arranged accord that raised the outlook of identical deals with other Arab states containing Saudi Arabia. But after days of apparent silence and in the face of US pressure to announce a similar deal, Saudi Arabia's excluded the probabilit­y until t he Palestinia­n i ssue is tackled. Peace must be attained with t he Palestinia­ns as per internatio­nal agreements as a pre- condition for any peaceful of relations. Prince Faisal's comments are the kingdom's first authentic reaction since the UAE's historic deal with Israel, which is only three- layered accord the Jewish state has hurt with an Arab country after Egypt and Jordan. Until recently Saudi Arabia had maintained a noteworthy silence over the deal even as domesti c officials pointed that Riyadh was Honorary Advisory Board Tariq Iqbal Khan, FCA Amir Abbas Ashary Sikandar Ali Shah Nuzaira Azam ( U.

Karbala: The pivotal of intercessi­on and salvation of the mankind challenge with the arrangemen­t of the salvation of mankind through his beloved & chosen Holy spirits of heaven. They forever be able to prove themselves with the touchstone of loyalty towards their Creator; the Almighty, even they can willingly sacrifice not only themselves but their loved ones too. The Creator arranged holy guidance throughout for mankind through His Holy Messengers up till the last Prophet Muhammad ( SAAW). Beside it, the holy spirits of heavens came into the shapes of Imams of their times & played their roles as representa­tives of mankind. They defeated the Iblees by giving their lives in way of Allah ( SWT) to protect human being from flames of hell. They achieved the right of intercessi­on for doomsday which will be used by the Holy Prophet ( SAAW). "That Day, no intercessi­on will benefit except [ that of] one to whom the Most Merciful has given permission and has accepted his word." ( Surah Taha verse 109). That the reward of foregoing intercessi­on was directly interlinke­d as an integral part of the sacrifice. The great Prophet Ibrahim ( A. S.) showed the passion for this reward from the Creator to be maintained in his lineage as the God taught him through a vision demanding the sacrifice of his prettiest thing and he believed that the prettiest thing is his firstborn son, Hazrat Ismail ( A. S.). Both the great Prophets of that time willingly accept this task but Allah held it for later on time with a covenant to maintain this reward in his li neage but would not be reached to t he oppressors. ( Referred Surah Saffat 101- 107). The plan of the Greatest Designer ( SWT) is no doubt divided into two parts, one is of divine guidance for human being's training & the second one is of their salvation with intercessi­on. The first part relates to the divine guidance through the messengers of Allah Almighty has completed on the event of Ghadeer. "This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion." [ Surah al- Ma` idah 5: 3]. Returning of Holy Prophet ( SAAW) from the Last Hajj, this most important declaratio­n was made at central way of pilgrims, ' The Ghadeer- e- Khum' by holding up the hand of Imam Ali ( A. S.) and declared publicly in Muslims of that time, "Whomsoever's Maula I am, this Ali is also his Maula." This was done on clear directions of Almighty Allah ( SWT). "O Messenger! Deliver what has been revealed to you from your Lord; & if you do it not, then you have not delivered His message, & Allah will protect you from the people; surely Allah will not guide the unbelievin­g people." [ Surah Al Ma'idah 5: 67] Unbiased and analytical approach to the historical chain of events just after the Ghadeer and the Last Holy Prophet Muhammad ( SAAW) reflects to understand the Tragedy of Karbala as a pivotal of divine guidance & intercessi­on which makes clear to determine the real meaning of victory of The Almighty & defeat of devil regarding the challenge referred at start of this article. Who will deserve t he in te rcession of the Prophet Muhammad ( SAAW) & his Holy house on Doomsday? No doubt the people who act upon the divine guidance as they can afford as possible and on the other hand they should accept the intercessi­on achieved by their holy representa­tives as they sacrificed their lives to and on the land of Karbala ( Nainawa) and thereafter. The tragedy of Karbala still today is pointed out in the previous Holy books e. g. as mentioned in Gospel ( Injeel). "Don't be afraid of what you are going to suffer. Look! The devil is going to throw some of you into prison in order to test you. You will suffer hardship for ten days. Be faithful even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life." ( Revelation 02: 10). A llah ( SWT) has had a plan to uplift the level of the magnificen­ce of mankind as His best creature, no doubt that the human being was not created without any purpose. Allah creates it to manage the earth being the caretaker. The Adam ( A. S.) being the first man and a Prophet dwelled on earth as Khalifat ul Arz. The position of Hazrat Adam ( A. S.) was challenged by Satan ( Iblees) and as such disobeyed the Almighty and declared the clear intention to mislead the mankind till the day of resurrecti­on. This challenge was accepted by the God & granted Satan the time to do so. ( Referred Surah Baqra verse 30- 34 with pertinent to see Surah Al Hijr verse 28- 39). Satan deceived Adam ( A. S.) and caused displaced him from paradise but Allah being all knower is the best planner who had a plan to overcome and win the aforementi­oned Syed Sheharyar Dilshad The writer has done LL.

He was blessed with two children from this marriage; Ahmed Shahab Suhrawardy and Begum Akhtar Sulaiman. Ahmed Suhrawardy died from pneumonia, i n 1940, when he was a student in London. Suhrawardy's first wife, Begum Niaz Fatima, died in 1932; he afterward married Vera Alexandrov­na Tiscenko Calder, who, after her marriage converted to Islam and changed her name to Begum Noor Jehan. He had one child, Rashid Suhrawardy, from her. Suhrwardy entered lively politics i n Bengal, f rom the dais of Swaraj Part. He played a significan­t part i n the preparatio­n of the Bengal Pact in 1923. At the age of 31, in 1924, he became t he Deputy Mayor of the Calcutta Corporatio­n, and t he Deputy Leader of the Swaraj Party in the Provincial Assembly. He severed himself from the Swaraj Party and j oined Muslim League. He became as Minister of Labour, and Minister of Civil Supplies. In 1946' s elections, he became the head of a Muslim League government in Bengal. After t he independen­ce Pakistan, Suhrawardy was elected as a Member of the first Constituen­t Assembly of Pakistan i n 1949. He afterward became Minister for Law, during t he power of second Constituen­t Assembly of Pakistan, i n December 1954, and after one year, in 1955 he was appointed the Leader of the Opposition to a coalition Government. He was chosen to head a coalition government of Pakistan, as a Prime Minister i n 1956. His early assignment­s were to t ackle the energy troubles, t o eliminate economical disparity, and t o create a huge military. He took interest to re- construct and i mproves the military forces, to accelerate t he defense f ramework, to f ormulate the schedule of nuclear power against India, and t o advance supply- side economics strategies. Suhrawardy was the leading Prime Minister t o visit China to advance the Sino- Pak relations and PakistanU. S's l ong associated ti es were t he t orch bearer of his f oreign policy. In spite his accomplish­ments, he was compelled to resign under menace of dismissal by the President Iskander Mirza, after his not able to control the economic disparity, to start One Unit Program, and to check the control of business domination in politics. Suhrawardy resigned from his position on 10th October 1957. He died because of a chronic heart attack in Beirut, Lebanon, on 5th December 1963; his grave is in Dhaka. Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy's reign in office was short, as i t was discontinu­ed by President I skander Mirza. It is thought t hat Mirza opposed Suhrawardy's appointmen­t as prime minister, but uninterest­edly accepted his name when t he political facts f acing him le ft no other alter native on the ta ble. Begum Ikramulla h, Suhrawardy's cousin and a highly admired woman i n her own right, exhibits many affairs both in i ndividual and government of his lif e, in Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy. Her disclosure assists to compre- hend the tr ouble of Pakistani politics i n the i nstant aftershock­s of independen­ce. Mirza and Suhrawardy may have had some bitterness between them before, but after Suhrawardy's appointmen­t as prime minister, the two men were friends with each others. Suhrawardy was an expert politician and Jinnah wanted him to j oin t he Muslim League and lead it in Bengal province of the pre- partition India. He lived up to Jinnah's assumption. He was one of t he active politician­s, he pleased all. He never took monetary profits from politics. Rather t han he practiced la w for his l ivelihood. He took up his legal practice again. The courts of Karachi and Lahore were ordered not to record him as a la wyer. It was the court of Sahiwal t hat enrolled Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy as a lawyer. Suhrawardy was compelled to r esign as Prime Minister, people liked him and still people remember him and he can never be forgotten. Huseyn Suhrawardy the architect was the man who struggled his way to bring Bengal on the map of Pakistan In order to achieve this objective he t ried and got a resoluti on passed by the Legislator­s' Convention. As Chief Minister of United Bengal, he supported and served Muslims during the riots t o such a large extent t hat Hindus in Bengal hated him. For the entir e duration of Pakistan Movement, he had been the Secretary- General of Muslim League Bengal and a powerful member of t he Party. H us sa in Shaheed Suhrawardy was a Pakistani statesman of Bengali origin, and was among the Founding Fathers of modern- day Pakistan. He was el ected as t he f i f th Prime minister of Pakistan and served fr om 1956 to 1957. Suhrawardy belongs to the Suhrawardi­a family. He was born on 8th September 1892, i n a town of Midnapore, currently West Bengal. His father, Sir Zahid Suhrawardy, was a well- known judge of the Calcutt a Hi gh Court. He co mplete d hi s B. S. i n Mathematic­s i n 1910, from St. Xavier's College. He got admission in University of Calcutta, f rom where he did his Masters in Arabic language and won a scholarshi­p for higher studies abroad. He t hen, went to the United Kingdom t o j oi n St Catheri ne's Colle ge, Oxford University, from where he completed M. A. B. C. L. and Bar- at- Law degrees with distinctio­n. After that he started practice at Calcutta High Court. In 1920, he married Begum Niaz Fatima, daughter of Sir Abdur Rahim, at that t ime Home Minister of the Bengal Province of Mohammed Arifeen BOOK REVIEW Diverse adventurou­s history of Hunza the Persian language, verily this book provides the subs t ant i al c r edi bl e a nd val i d i nfor mati onfor r esearchers, students and ordinary r eaders t o access & obtai n proper r efe r en c es and c it at i ons of hi st ori - caleventso­f vicissitud­es which periodical­ly emergedin tri bal civilizati­ons of th is part of the world. SomewhatI alreadymen­tioned above th at the book written by Author Zafar Iqbal i s a remarkable and incredible achievemen­t of his endeavorsa­nd in reality, we can say that t he writer has adorned and ornamented this book with the combinatio­n ofcomprehe­nsive historical aspectsand changing cir cumstances of t he medieval, past and primitive ages. It has an extensive canvas t hat offer s a grea t va ri et y of hi s tor ic al movementsa nd eventsthat took placefrom t ime t o ti me from ancient t o modern i n t his highland and craggy region. The writer indeed made enormous efforts t o compile and create such a prolific and euphemisti­c publicatio­n out of the antediluvi­an diverse, intr icate, and convoluted chronology. There isan abundance of historical references which are verily much arduoustas­k t o collate and produce such anintumesc­ent and fecund book without panoptic visionand havingexte­nsive knowledge i n the specific fie ld. The author of the book sheds li ght on several neglected or overlooked subjects by t he other authors i n their books r espectivel­y. Overall t he volume of this book i s more than 1500 pages and i t has beendivide­d into three separ ate parts f or th e facilita t ion of readers. Neverthele­ss, f ollowing my notion the author of this book hasa li ttl e drawback the writer has ignored or never ponder uponthat his creationis some t ime become so unnecessar­ilytiresom­eto prolongtha­t one can't browse through in one or two sitti ngs, it r equiredrea­ders seclusion with enough time to cover- up and comprehend the statistic s and evidence of book to aluminate his knowledge. Apart from the aforementi­oned f act the writer ri ghtly claims t hat there i s not a single book or major r esearch article written and available in one volume on the oldest history of Hunza so far i n the market, albeit he asserts except f ew glimpse and observatio­ns& contemplat­ionsof peripateti­cor passer- by's coming f rom abroad one can't f ind mereonly f ew r eferenceso­n many of t hese t opics i . e. on history, cultural civilizati­on, settlement­s, and tr ibal migrations. Of course, t his is a l audatory aspect of thisdoc ument whichc l a s s i f ie s t he book "Diverse a nd Adventures History of Hunza" f rom other publicatio­ns of the same subject materials. The writer himself was a dweller of t hismountai­nousregion this i s an additional distinctiv­e benefit f or himto choose, grope and work on the right direction and ri ght places t o academical­ly deliberate­uponand collectapp­ropriate knowledge that he requiredto pileupa comprehens­ive book whether that i s available i n t he form of oralnarrat­ions coming f rom generation­s, in manuscript­s orinscribe­d on r ocks and boulders across t his mountainou­s region of the subcontine­nt. Beyond doubt, this region has always remained sig nif icantimpor­tanceowing to i ts topographi­c placement and unique socio- economic values which perpetuall­y attr acted invaders and even t ravellers from many parts of the world. Therefore, i t discerns apart fr om few of l ocal writers several scholars from other parts of the world and even pa s se r- bye s i ncl ine d / pr o mpted t omake t he i r attempts t o write few words of their eloquentex­periences about this specified mountainou­s r egion, butthe work of Zafar Iqbal i s not perceiving­a groovy style, indeed he emphatical­lyand devotedly t oiledto grope and gather the facts of events occurred ti me to t ime i n t his alluring la nd. The credit goes t o his consistent strive which incited him to visit many of the countries in search of related material i f laying anywhere in the lib raries across the world. After perusing his book I couldn't remain without bestowing credit and eulogize to his str ugglefor compilin g such a book which is more informativ­e equated t o other books of t he same topic. Somewhat he has succeeded to siphon off the diasporema­terialinto a single voluminous i ntelligibl­e book of chronologi­cal i nformati on about this enchanting l and of Hunza valley.
