Urdu is deemed as one of the most beautiful languages spoken in Pakistan, and because being a national language, its respect and honor are due to every Pakistani. Amongst many languages, which were being spoken at that time, Quaid e Azam, Muhammad Ali Jinnah chose Urdu as a symbol of unity for the new state of Pakistan. Since it was a new country, so it was inappropriate to choose a language representing a specific tribe or ethnicity. Whereas Urdu already had a history of serving as a Lingua Franca among Muslims in the north and northwest British India, and thus was perfect for a newly born Muslim state, which was acquired in the name of Islam and not some specific ethnicity or tribe.
Unfortunately, even after 70 years, some ignorant people couldn’t understand the actual purpose of Pakistan and still cannot think out of their box, made up of sectarianism.
Mehmood Khan Achakzai Attack on Urdu at PDM Conference in Karachi
Recently, a power show by Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) aka Corruption Bachao Movement took place in Karachi, where the leaders of 11 unified parties addressed the crowd, selling the same Manjan in different tones.
The leader of PMAP and an MNA, Mehmood Khan Achakzai also addressed the apparent Awaam Of Karachi, and give his two cents(or should I say 2 cents worthy views) on the current situation.
Talking to the audience of the assemblage, Achakzai takes a massive dig at Urdu and claimed that it is just a Lingua Franca but not OUR Own language. He further claimed that the National language of Pakistan is Sindhi. Ironically, he said all these things while talking in the Urdu language.
Strange isn’t it? Standing in the Jinnah Bagh, adjacent to Urdu Speaking and Urdu Loving Leader, Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s tomb, talking to the audience of a city which is known as the city of Urdu Speakers, a man dared to attack Urdu, and no one stopped him. In Karachi, he talked about Pashtun, Sindhi, Balochi, Punjabi, but never once addressed the Urdu-Speaking Qoam, and yet people praised him.
10 other leaders were present, representing 10 different parties but not one raises its hand and condemn Achakzai’s claim of calling Urdu a Strange language. No one dared to remind the Baloch extremist that it is a National Language and he is obliged to respect it.
Enraged Netizens Protested Against Achakzai Statement
Quaid e Azam, Mohammad Ali Jinnah once said, that Urdu is the Native Language of Pakistan, and whoever told you otherwise is our enemy, and today I understand how right he was..!
But talking about Achakzai, it wasn’t his fault. He inherited that sectarianism and treachery from his forefathers. His father Abdul Samad Khan Achakzai known as ‘Baloch Gandhi’ was a Pashtun nationalist of British India Balochistan and was always against Jinnah’s Decision of creating a separate Muslim country. He never wanted Pakistan to be formed or came into being, and now son, Mehmood Khan Achakzai is just following his legacy, nothing much.
One thing has become sure, PDM is not representing Pakistan, but PDM Is formed to break Pakistan. Each and every one of them is separatist in some way, seeking the opportunity to tear Pakistan apart. Remember, Bilawal demand of Sindhu Desh?
One thing I want to tell all anti-state and anti-Pakistan elements living in Pakistan… No matter how hard you try or how well you may play, the people of Pakistan are not going to get beguiled by this deception, ever.
