BEIC ef­fi­ca­cious or ex­ter­mi­nat­ing for sub­con­ti­nent

The Financial Daily - - NATIONAL - Ab­dul­l­lah Shah

Some­what I am not in fa­vor of in­vaders in­deed there are abun­dance of set­backs and un­for­tu­nate de­vel­op­ments, even­tu­ally I also un­der­stand many peo­ple may not ac­qui­esced me on my point of view. Of course we com­pelled to con­cede this fact, Apart from tech­nol­ogy & democ­racy the Bri­tish East In­dian Com­pany also in­tro­duced dis­crim­i­na­tion, prej­u­dice, cul­tural big­otry and racism to our so­ci­ety. Nev­er­the­less, I deemed de­spite all the afore­men­tioned men­aces the Bri­tish East In­dian Com­pany the epony­mous English Mer­chants are be­come sheer worth­while in terms of diver­sify pe­cu­niary and in­di­vid­ual as­pect and played a piv­otal role in the progress of peo­ple and devel­op­ment of sub­con­ti­nent par­tic­u­larly in the part of our geo­graph­i­cal ter­ri­tory. Be­sides many dele­te­ri­ous char­ac­ter­is­tics they also aug­mented the ori­en­ta­tion of in­di­vid­ual men­tal ap­proach by bring­ing tech­nol­ogy, health re­lated fa­cil­i­ties, ed­u­ca­tion and Law & democ­racy at ev­ery cor­ner of the world. No one will dis­agree on my opin­ion, wher­ever they be­come vic­to­ri­ous they es­tab­lished a suc­cess­ful and well-for­ti­fied gov­ern­ment with serene cir­cum­stances.

Al­beit, af­ter roll­back of Bri­tish In­dian Com­pany only pre­vailed be­hind so-called democ­racy and their trained epony­mous democrats and bu­reau­crats whom as a mat­ter of fact were dob­bins of the United King­dom (UK) which were trained to swin­dle the peo­ple rest of their colo­nial coun­tries of the Globe like­wise our own coun­try. en­su­ing ret­ro­spec­tion if we put a cur­sory glance upon the past Bri­tish colo­nial his­tory re­veals that what sort of a po­tent in­fra­struc­ture they en­dowed for sub­con­ti­nent in gen­eral and in par­tic­u­lar to this coun­try in the form of col­leges, Schools, hos­pi­tals, a gar­gan­tuan net­work of canals in­clud­ing a proper com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tem like­wise Rail­ways and of course an in­ter­con­nected com­plex sys­tem of paved and un­paved roads. Ver­ily this ab­so­lutely com­pre­hen­sive type of in­fra­struc­ture in­tro­duced to this part of the world steered to put the in­hab­i­tants of the re­gion on the path of progress. Al­though th­ese aca­demic in­sti­tu­tions, Hos­pi­tals, bridges and many other colos­sal ven­tures erected across the sub­con­ti­nent in the past many decades by the Bri­tish colo­nial regime are still stand­out and more wor­thy as com­pare to the newly es­tab­lished such sort of projects which yield­ing equally for all classes of the in­hab­i­tants of this re­gion.

It is iron­i­cal as a na­tion all of us never learnt an eth­i­cal les­son from our adroit in­trud­ers, whereas it was manda­tory that in the ab­sence of them at least im­i­tat­ing and fol­low­ing their foot­steps we ought to be se­lected and adopted a fea­si­ble and diver­sify road map of progress in­clud­ing in­sure to pro­vid­ing with­out dis­crim­i­na­tion equally law & jus­tice for all seg­ments of so­ci­ety in our re­spec­tive coun­tries. Hap­lessly we as na­tions of this part of the world omit to do so and in­stead we in­vari­ably and ha­bit­u­ally kept in mind our per­sonal in­sa­tiable in­ter­ests & never vac­il­lated at max­i­mum ex­tant, yet try­ing to deprive and be­reaved off our re­spec­tive na­tions from all sorts of ba­sic civic fa­cil­i­ties & rights of progress. It is most com­monly known fact in re­place­ment of Bri­tish rep­re­sen­ta­tives the UK gov­ern­ment left be­hind their own fealty and faith­ful sur­ro­gates, ac­tu­ally among many of them there were in­cluded high­est level rogues, scoundrels, brig­ands and li­cen­tious pro­po­nents. Af­ter­math, the de­par­ture of their English Mas­ters th­ese in­sid­i­ous and per­fid­i­ous seg­ments of so­ci­ety grad­u­ally wiped out or an­ni­hi­lated ve­ra­cious in­di­vid­u­als from dom­i­nant po­si­tions & oc­cu­pied rest of the im­por­tant and au­thor­i­ta­tive seats in the gov­ern­ment and be­come ac­tive to con­sum­mate their abom­inable aims and mot­tos de­lib­er­ately cre­at­ing in­cer­ti­tude sit­u­a­tion in their re­spec­tive areas of work­ing which in­deed ad­e­quately suits them to ac­com­plish their ne­far­i­ous ob­jec­tives.

In the past 71 years did any one of us ever re­luc­tant to spare few mo­ments of life to en­vis­age on this cru­cial point of view, till to date we cu­mu­la­tively as a na­tion what sort of ad­van­tages we can able to at­tain from our so called democrats and their democ­racy and ow­ing to de­pend­ing upon their fu­tile and ca­nard com­mit­ments how many thing we lost in that in­es­timable pro­tracted pe­riod of time. With the pass­ing move­ment why a poor be­come ab­ject poor and rich be­comes rich­est? The an­swers is very sim­ple, I sug­gest to all of us must metic­u­lously pon­der upon the past and pre­vail­ing cir­cum­stances of our so­ci­ety as well as on our own be­hav­ior to­wards our mi­lieu and de­cide, whether we in­tend to live for­ever a hum­drum sort of life sim­i­lar to gullible per­sons who can eas­ily be gulled for a plate of biryani and de­void us even from our sub­stan­tial hu­man rights. Be­ware of such er­ro­neous and bar­ren com­mit­ments of treach­er­ous and wicked rep­re­sen­ta­tives whom mak­ing it all for their per­sonal ben­e­fits and up­rightly say no to such seg­ments of our so­ci­ety and set your fu­ture ori­en­ta­tion for a bet­ter life alike an adroit and dex­ter­ous mem­ber of the na­tion and also as­sist oth­ers ob­tain­ing ap­pro­pri­ate masers in ac­qui­si­tion­ing rather wrest­ing in­di­vid­ual rights from such cat­e­gory of agents.

An an­other vi­tal rea­son of our fail­ure I in­tend to men­tion here is we as a na­tion never ever try to un­der­stand the value of time, per­haps th­ese un­bid­den hu­mans hoisted the sail of their ship and sets over for search­ing out some new ci­ties and coun­tries a world away in­terred to this part of the globe diplo­mat­i­cally and tact­fully in the cloak of mer­chants in­tend­ing to sub­ju­gate and en­slaved naive & fal­li­ble peo­ple of this re­gion. Th­ese as­tute busi­ness groups were in­deed very well aware of the im­por­tance and value of time and never omit to make it fruc­tu­ous for their own and even for those na­tion where they ex­er­cised their triumphant gov­er­nances. To re­mind all of us about the fa­mous proverb time is money they erected spe­cial minarets in­stalling gi­gan­tic clocks at the top and even never Passover with­out equip­ping other im­por­tant and im­pos­ing pub­lic build­ings as well with such time telling de­vices in all big ci­ties in ev­ery verge of the world where they suc­ceeded to takeover. We can rightly men­tion here un­der­stand­ing the value of time was one of the most im­por­tant fac­tors of suc­cess of that na­tion, whereas in con­trast our epony­mous lead­ers al­ways stay in mag­nan­i­mous and mu­nif­i­cence in terms of spend­ing their pre­cious time reck­lessly. More­over, in the light of above re­al­i­ties it per­ceives for the so called demo­crat's achiev­ing a goal of flour­ish­ing and pros­per na­tion was not pri­or­ity in the past.
