KARACHI: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) has demanded of the government to announce a public holiday on Ramazan 10 on the occasion of Youm-e-Babul-e-Islam. JI spokesperson, Mujahid Channa, said the 10th of Ramazan has a lot of significance for the Muslims of this region as Islam came to Sindh with Muhammad bin Qasim, who reached Sindh with his convoy. Meanwhile, JI Sindh general secretary, Mumtaz Hussain Sahito, said they would hold programmes in all major cities and towns on Sindh to celebrate the ‘gateway of Islam day.’

Why don't they have the whole month off for Ramadan, ask the JI to supply the money and food to those who has to work to feed their families, come Ramadan or any other religious obligations. Instead of alleviating the suffering of those who are going through some very hard times during this hot weather and fasting but they are suggesting religious holidays which does not make any sense. Pathetic people.

The more we talk about our ancestery from the Arab raiders, the more we loose our Indian ancestery, more we loose reality and try to align with something thatbisnot ours. We are not raiders we are intellectuals of the Mohenjo Daro and harappa times.

We all must regain our Indianness and loosen the forced stupid identity of Arab. Only then nation-building will take place and Inshallah Pakistan will be a great nation like India.
