Poor Children & End Poverty?

ان کی آنکھوں میں جھاتی پاکر دیکھوں۔۔۔!
وینگس
18 جون 2013 کی صبح ہر روز کی طرح دستک دے نے آئی تھی اور ہم لوگوں کے پاس اس کی دستک قبول کرنے کے سوا اور چوائس نہی، آپ کو قبول ہو یا نہی۔
گر ایماندارانہ بات کی جائے تو ہم سب اپنی زندگی کب اپنی شرطوں پہ گذارتے ہیں۔۔۔؟!

خیر واپس آتے ہیں اپنی بات پہ کے آخر آج کِس کی بات ہم کریں گے۔ جب کسی بھی ریاست میں روایتی انداز سے سیاست کو گھسیٹا جائے تو اس میں غریب عوام ئی رگڑی جاتی ہے۔

پاکستان کی سیاست میں بھی اسی طرح کا روایتی انداز کی سیاست رائج ہے اور اس جانور کی طرح جس کی آنکھوں پہ پٹی بھاندھی جاتی ہے جو مسلسل اک ہی دائرے میں چکر کاٹتا رہتا ہے اس کو کیا پتا کہ اس کا پورا وقت اِک ہی دائرے میں گذر رہا ہے اور پاکستان کی سیاست بھی اسی ہی دائرے میں چکر کاٹتی رہتی ہے۔
جب آپ کو پتا ہو کہ جس ملک میں آپ رہتے ہو اس میں روایتی انداز کی سیاست ہے اور امیر لوگ سیاست کے نام پہ عوام کی اٌمیدوں کا سودا لگانے آتے ہیں۔
سیاست کی کرسی پہ بھٹنے والے چھروں نے کبھی تاریخ کو پڑھا یا ان کو اتنا پتا بھی ہے کہ عوام ہر رات کو سونے سے پہلے کون سے خواب بُنتے ہیں اور پھر اپنے ہی ہاتھوں ان کو دفن کرتے ہیں اس کا کرب کیا ہوتا ہے۔۔۔؟!

ایسے ماحول میں آپ کیا اُمید کرتے ہیں کہ اخبار کیا آپ کے لیئے کون سی خوشخبری لائے گی؟ یا پھر 18 جون کی اخبار میں کیا دیکھیں کے ملک کے صوبوں نے عوام کے درد کو ختم کرنے کی کونسی دوا دی بھی ہے یا دوا کے نام پہ اک بار پھر دردمند عوام کو انتظار فرمائیے کا بورڈ دیکھایا گیا ہے؟

آج پتا نہی کے اخبار پڑھنے کا دل نہی چا رہا تھا لیکن ہم جن کے پاس کو بھی چوائس نہی پھر بھی اخبار ہاتھ میں اُٹھا لی اس اُمید کے ساتھ کے شاید امیر سیاست کے رکھوالوں نے غریب عوام کے ہاتھوں میں کچھ تو دیا ہوگا۔

اخبار کا پہلا پیج صوبائی حکومتوں سے بھرا ہوا ہے جس میں واعدے کیئے گئے ہیں کہ عوام کی تقدیر بدل دے گے ۔۔۔ آخر امیروں کی سیاست ہمشہ مستقبل کے جملوں پہ ہی کیوں کھڑی رہتی ہے؟

اس بار جو وہ کہتے ہیں کہ عوام کی تقدیر بدل دیں گے ان سے جاکر یہ پوچھوں کے کیا انہوں نے اخبار کے پچھلے صفحے پہ یہ تصویر دیکھی ہے؟
Photo via Daily Ibrat newspaper on 18/June/2013


ان کی آنکھوں میں جھاتی پاکر دیکھوں جن کے درد مندانہ چہرے اس ملک کی حکومت سے سوال کرتے ہیں کہ کیا ہمارا بھی کوئی حق ہے؟
کیا ہمارے خوابوں کو اُمید کا سہارا ملے گا یا پھر ہمارے خوابوں کو قبر کا سہارا دیکر دفنایا جائے گا۔۔۔؟

ملک کی حکومتوں نے انہی لوگوں کے لیئے ہر سال بجیٹ رکھی لیکن ان معصوم لوگوں کی قسمت ان پہ کب مہربان ہوگی یا پھر ان کی ساری زندگی ایسے ہی گذر جائے گی؟
اس تصویر میں بچے اپنے بچپن کو خوشیوں میں نہی دوڑا رہے پر ان کا بچپن دُکھ کے لہر پہ چل رہا ہے۔ ان کی خوشیاں کو لاکر دے گا؟
ان کے روٹھے ہوئے چہروں پہ مسکراہٹوں کی ماک کون ڈھوکر آئے گا؟
ہمارے دیس میں تو سنتا کلاز بھی نہی جو بچوں کے ٹوٹے ہوئے دروں کے آگے اک گفٹ رکھ جائے۔

لیکن اس تصویر کو کون دیکھے گا؟ ان کے درد کو کون سنے گا؟
کیا امیر سیاستدان کے پاس انتا وقت بھی ہے کہ وہ ان کی آنکھوں میں جھاتی پاکر دیکھ سکیں؟

میں اس کشمش میں ہوں کے آخر یہ دنیا کسی دنیا ہے؟ جو امیر اور غریبوں میں بٹی ہوئی ہے؟ گر ان سب کا خدا اک ہے تو پھر یہ بٹوار کیوں؟ یا پھر اس دنیا کی طرح خدا بھی امیر اور غریب کی طرح بٹے ہوئے ہیں؟ گر ایسا نہی تو پھر کیوں غریب اور معصوم بچے آنکھوں میں درد لیئے بھیٹے ہیں؟
کیا اوپر والے نے ان کی آنکھوں میں جھکر دیکھا ہے؟
مجھے ہلینا کہ لفظ یاد آ رہے ہیں:
آج پھر میری گلی میں سے اک بچہ خاموش ہوکر گذرا ہے،
اس کی آنکھوں میں کچھ بھی نہی،
اس کی آنکھوں میں شاید بہت کچھ ہو،
وہ جو کسی سے شکایت نہی کرتا،
آج اس نے آسماں کی طرف دیکھ کر بڑی صدا کی ہے،
آج آسماں کتنے زور سے برس بڑا ہے؟
ارے!
کہیں آسماں آج اس بچہ کی صدا مارنے پہ رو تو نہی رہا؟
آخر اس کی صدا میں کیا تھا؟
جو ہم نہ سمجھ پائے۔۔۔!

Where is the voice of Dipa Devi?!

Veengas

Many times, I have written and then rubbed it. I don’t understand what should write and where would go for knocking the door for seeking help because I have been writing on cases of Hindu girls who have been kidnapped, raped and then forcibly converted to Islam.


None single case could see fragrance of justice. If you go and ask them that why didn’t you justice then you would receive message, girl accepted religion. If she accepted any religion as people are saying, why doesn’t she allow be to meet with her family and Mother? Do you have an evidence that girl has own-will converted another religion? It may happen, she might forcibly being converted?
It is very discomfited situation that courts only listen spoken-words but unable to reveal true picture of the case.


Of course, Citizen cannot accept that in the name of sacred words, wrong deeds always destroy innocents’ lives. But … but let me share with you that criminal acts get verification under the shadow of sacred words and state law doesn’t seem take action against them.
Since last year, I am writing that for god’s sake, not to allow criminal acts in the name of religion and to take strongly action against them.
I wrote “we have names of Rinkle, Lata and Asha but tomorrow we can have many names if our courts and government didn’t justice to girls.”
As usual, girls were denied to justice and after these cases we heard Manisha, Moomal Meghwar and Sunita were kidnapped, cases were not being come on Media, moreover; nor Human Rights organizations glanced over cases.


And we people were beating drums of words also trying to awake sleeping minds, please up voice for them, in return received cold-attitude.
Now where are these all girls none has idea. Are they not lives?


After year, again once case has happened but this time case is not reported in media as it should be.
News was looking for reporting that someone ought to come and report it, hence this news was ignored in the amount of traffic of information and we missed news that was looking at to be reported.
When I heard news, one Hindu girl has been kidnapped. Even while interviewing I asked “Mr. Khair Bux Marrri about that girl then his fellow confirmed and said yes one girl is kidnapped.”
I have been continuously searching details about case; unfortunately I was unable to get information earlier.
Because people have fears if they speak of case, unwelcome situations would harm them.
But I was keep investigating news, however; being a journalist it is unacceptable to me that one news means victimized-voice being sidelined because we have no news in newspapers, on TV channels, no cries on it and no more sit in over case.
One news was looking to the society that who will report it?


When I started reporting it, at first step information came that Lila Ram school girl has been kidnapped and second source shared, girl has converted to Islam in Hub.
Then finally, essential source confirmed and shared information, although taken promise that identification not to report because situations are not favorable in Balochistan.
It is strange for me that this case is simple related to Human Rights, nothing to do with state and neither nationalist parties might receive any harm but main source said, you should understand our position. I am not in position to show my name it would be harmful act for me.


I can understand the situation, one case that is not being reported and already situation is unwell in Balochistan then how is it possible for common citizen who shows name on sensitive issues, wanted to know Truth and promised not to reveal name and then asked about the case.
Vital source shared that “Lila Ram is father of Dipa Devi 17-18 years old girl who has been kidnapped on 2nd May, 2013 from Kalat, Balochistan. She went college, later she didn’t return home, thus family got worried and searched her but nowhere was foot-steps of Dipa Devi. Family called her Dipa Devi where are you? Voice didn’t get response.
Since two months her mother is in position of unconsciousness in Saleem Complex hospital, Quetta. Lila Ram’s family has been requesting to everyone, sadly none responded positively.
Even they registered FIR but it is shocked that police has not issued FIR number, besides one police man tried to force at family that they should put off their complain, as source shared.”


After getting details about the case, “I myself phoned to Kalat police station and asked about the case, on 13th June, 2013. Police officer confirmed news that yes; girl is kidnapped on 2nd May, 2013. I asked for FIR details, police officer responded that family has not registered FIR, expect complains. Again asked them, who has kidnapped her? Do you know? Police officer answered, No … Madam, we have no Idea. It shook my mind, I asked him, what? Are you telling me that you don’t know who has kidnapped or gone? Police officer simply replied, yes I don’t know. I continued asking that you are waiting that family register FIR though you know since 2nd May, one girl has been kidnapped but you are not investigating? Why? What you are doing? Police officer responded, Madam Give us time we are investigating on the case and will share details with you as soon as we get information, police officer said.”
In which type of state we are living where girl has been kidnapped, none knows who is responsible? Either this is kidnapping or else? Still FIR number is not given. Where are we going? Shall we call it such situation lead us to Hell?


Though, Dipa’s family is suffering, they may know that will never get justice even let me write, what should they expect when one state institute doesn’t file FIR, nor investigate the case and statesmen have no time to listen voice of mother’s Dipa.


Perhaps, this case gets as ignored as previous cases. Unfortunate, no single voice is for Dipa Devi. Muslims league Nawaz, claimed that they would protect Hindus and minorities. Now anyone ought to go and inform to PMLN that in your government one case has no right to file FIR, either.
Mr. Abdul Malik Baloch believes in Justices for Balochistan. Then, what about Dipa Devi? Is she not Baloch? Has she no right to hug her mother? Doesn’t Lila Ram’s family have right to know about her daughter?


What happens? If they are Hindus, in fact Hindus are indigenous people of this land and have as equal right as other citizens have.
Therefore, I am leaving a question for PMLN, Mr. Malik Baloch and other parties that would you spare time to listen broken-news of Lila Ram’s Family? These people are citizen of Pakistan but have no right to use their rights…!


I don’t know what has problem with human rights organizations. Why don’t they eliminate silent over Hindu girls’ cases? Why Human Rights come up with selective-cases? Are these Hindu girls’ not counted in list of HR org. or they are alien that HR org. prefers to follow words “Don’t See.” We keep hope such kind of selective attitudes must be changed and see all cases equally.
Mother of Dipa is willing to listen voice Dipa Devi, but none has known that where the voice of Dipa Devi is?


If previous cases of Hindu girls got justice, Dipa Devi’s case would not have happened. Though, people have no hopes their all believes go far if you go and tell them, don’t worry you will get justice, they would slightly laugh and then tell you, don’t joke we know well; we will never get justice. Today, Dipa Devi is not at her home and her family including mother all are silently looking at each other and after then look at the door that may miracle happen and Dipa Devi, would say Oh, Mother I am here.

Would it be possible?

While thinking of Mother’s condition, now recalling words of Sindhi poet who said: (Gorah ugh tuon pehene gal taan, yaar asaan ja bhaaj eihe thee, sajanr asaan ja bhaag eihe thee, Neer wahair, aayo chho aan, pehenja pehenja pour eihe thee, yaar asaan ja bhaag eihe thee) translated, “wipe tears on your cheek, oh, dear these are our destinies, beloved; these are our fortunes, why you have come with tears, this is our own anguishes, oh, dear this is our own destiny.”


Maybe, Dipa’s mother would feel such emotion as poet said. So, shall people zip their lips because injustice is fate? Definitely, Never…! Injustice is not fate. Then, where is the voice of Dipa Devi?

Do you have answers?

Veengas

What is life?
What is lie?
What is happiness?
How to Smile?
Thus, knowing well living in the sea of anguish, but what is anguish?
Why are people born?
How does flower come out from the heart of earth or flowers are the babies of earth?
How do people know about fragrance?
Why life turns into death?
What is love?
What is hate?
Why has night unending the silence?
Why do you think silence of night is itself conversation?
Can you count tears?
Why wind is blowing and birds are tweeting?
Do birds have feelings of Sorrows?
Why are people fighting?
Why do people write?
What is myth of stupidity and sensibility?
Can we turn sorrows into happiness?
After death, where do people go?

Music Concert held at US consulate - Karachi

Rain of the music in the hot weather…!

You can win hearts of the people by music if you want to imprison any state or people, use your irony weapons and to destroy living style of societies, by it you will never ever win hearts of the people but yes, it is ruthless way to apply at innocents people.
Why world was created? Have we ever thought on it? If we start to think on this question, would never harm world of people.


World has different types of people, some people want to dancing on the music of rain and very rare people seek to bulldoze peaceful society at their own footless thoughts, these people are unable to understand the art of dancing at the melody of birds even not to understand innocence of nature.
Nature that has real music when people get to know about nature of music, she/he may know fragrance of the Life.


Once late poet Shaikh Ayaz said that "Each man is a melody."


When state-art, keep following path of Music between state to state all problems will get solution because Music is form of tolerance and it has language of love and peace, instead of weapons or given and taken agreements will never solve problems, later all problems go on the pending-table after time problems again come out from graves.


Truly, world will have peace if each statesman follow the wave of music and to knock doors of hearts, not doors of money-begs.
World ought to give ears to the real voices for peaceful society. Nowadays, when Pakistan has hot-politic-talks in arena of power, common people are facing load shedding in hot summer, extremists' threats for stopping polio drops, provincial assemblies are wearing new cloths for new government is entering but on the other hand our country's Big City of Karachi, had rain of music in the hot weather. This city hasn't only target killings but voices of music, are under the sky. 


US consulate general Mr. Michael Dodman with Musicians,

A music concert was arranged by US-Consulate, Karachi on 25th may, 2013. It was beautiful invitation from US consulate, Karachi that has started Music diplomacy between statesmen to statesmen. Before, going into details of Music concert. We would add one thing, US consulate is working very hard on many things and especially they are focusing at culture things and to generate discussion on socio-politico-economic topics for betterment of the Pakistan.
On 25th May, 2013 US consulate arranged event of Music, especially music group was invited from USA "Blended 328 with guests "The Sketches" from Pakistan.


As above we shared words of poet Shaikh Ayaz that each man is a melody and these two groups were melodies which traveled to the US consulate and played the guitar of people's hearts.
Both groups have different background of culture and none can deny that both have one international culture and relation of music which has only one language, is Music.


American rock band Bended 328 has faith in "Country Music for the World" when played music, on the ground all young people were happily dancing and enjoying the music of Bended 328 and scene went change when The Sketches music group came on the stage and presented Sufi music with guitar.


Bended 328 and The Sketches both sung Sufi song, it was interesting when Bended group were singing Sufi song with The Sketches, and two countries were presenting peaceful and loving gesture from the stage.
Enthusiastically, Bended 328 rocked the old people, too who were sitting on the chairs but while listening their music they were moving hands, it was interesting and joyful moment that people enjoyed and at that moment they locked their worries and allowed to fly wings of music.


And The Sketches, tuned on Sufi Music people who didn't understand language but when The Sketches sung Sufi song, young people were dancing and other people were silently enjoying Sufi Music.
Rock & Sufi came on the stage with modern-look that touched hearts of people.
At music concert, some well-known voices shared their views on Music Concert as US consulate general Mr. Michael Dodman shared thoughts that "During my time in Pakistan, I have enjoyed hearing many Pakistani bands from traditional quawali music to Noori who performed right here on Daniel Pearl World Music Day. Strengthening people to people ties is one of my highest priorities as Consul General. I have seen how people come together when sharing music and culture. He further added, Today, I could not be happier to introduce the American musical tradition of Country and Western with the band Blended 328. They are great musicians but also represent not just American values, but values that we all share. Their theme "Country Music for the World" welcomes all people to join together. I have enjoyed Pakistani's legendary hospitality and am pleased that Blended 328 can share with you a bit of American hospitality as well. I am also happy to welcome the Pakistani band Sketches who will join Blended 328 at the end as well as kick of the event tonight," said Mr. Dodman.

Ms. Kristin Haworth (Cultural Affairs Officer) shared her views, "As Blended 328 says, country music is really music for the common man. It emphasizes universal values like family, faith, and hard work that are shared in both Pakistan and in the United States. Blended 328 to come up with a great performance together at the end. It's so clear that we have much more in common that we have differences - the music proved that." 


At music concert well-known writer and columnist Ms. "Bina Shah was also present, Bina commented; she thought it was great fun, presenting two types of music together: American country and western, and Pakistani Sufi-rock fusion so that everyone of all cultures could enjoy on the common ground of music. I was especially happy to see all the Access program children invited, who were able to dance and enjoy themselves to the fullest. Blended 328 and The Sketches are doing the best kind of cultural diplomacy, by sending a message of peace, tolerance and diversity. She responded on one question culture diplomacy that cultural diplomacy can't work unless it is hand in hand with political diplomacy - there has to be effort on all fronts, otherwise it can seem insincere."


The Sketches, best Singer Saif Samjo shared his views about "Music Concert, It was really great event and we performed with Bended 328 group. Music has no language when we performed in Sindhi and Siraiki languages, many people were unable to understand but they were dancing on music. In such live concerts you get live feedback and it is amazing for us.

Saif Samjo said about Bended 328 that we worked together and performed, too. While rehearsal songs we learnt a lot things though he appreciated Bended 328 Music group. He said that US and Pakistan relationship will be strengthened if we bridge cultural-music diplomacy, music is beautiful language and its communication is beautiful and healthy. You don't need to understand script but you will enjoy its melody. We all people belong to different version of culture but our music culture is common and understandable among people. 


He commented on Sufi Music that Sufi music is being listened in small cities and villages but in big cities it is not common. We are playing Sufi music with modern-look but traditional Sufi Music has long life and it will never be ended, even I am not sure about our own modern-style of Sufi Music whether it will have long-lasting, Saif Samjo commented.
He added that US consulate should be broadened its program and to bring in small cities, where common people are Sufi and to love music without any interests. If they spread such kind of program, it would send message of peace and love to the indigenous people of land. As I shared that Music is communication people to people, Sufi music is globally language, said Saif Samjo."


Mr. Richard Silver (Spokesperson U.S. Consulate General) shared his "personal experience when he arrived in Pakistan just before Ramazan began last year and decided to join the fast for the entire month. During that period, his Pakistani friends taught a great deal about Islam as well as the Sufi traditions that are strong there. Silver said, I love traditional Sufi music as a celebration of the spirit, an unbounded expression - a vast gateway inviting all to enter. When adding the modern elements of guitar and fusion music it for me demonstrates the universality of Sufi tradition and makes it even more accessible to people of all countries. He is passionate for Sufi music and loves it. Further adding that I look forward to sharing with people in the United States the beauty and richness of Pakistani culture and the importance of our friendship as people as well as nations."


Melody of rain of music remains in hearts of the people, on the earth only music is beautiful road where people can walk with peace and love. Pakistan and US relations will be strengthened if both countries bridge cultural and music diplomacy.

From Jiah Khan to Paris Jackson!



اک یتیم دل جو مارا گیا۔۔۔!

وینگس
آج پھر کافر دل نے سوچہ ہے کہ اس دنیا سے کچھ تو پوچھ لئے، کیا تم کو رونا نہی آیا جب کوئی یتیم دل اپنے آپ کو موت کے ہاتھوں سپرد کر رہا تھا؟

کیا تم اس وقت بھی اسے ہی خاموش اک دیوی کی طرح دیکھتی رہی؟ مجھے یاد ہے جب میں نے اک بار لکھا تھا کے آسماں کے تلے صرف وہ بچے یتیم نہی ہوتے جن کے ماں باپ نہی ہوتے، یا پھر وہ بچے جن کو کچھ مرد اپنی شناخت نہی دتے اور ان بچوں کے ماتھے پہ لاوارثوں کا ٹھپا لگایا جاتا ہے، غلام تاریخ سے انسان نے دامن نہی چھڑ وایا، جو اک قدرت کی زندگی کو لاوارث کہا جاتا ہے بچہ تو ماں کی اولاد ہوتا ہے۔۔۔!
کیا وہ بچہ جس کے ماتھے پہ لاوارث کا ٹھپا لگایا جاتا ہے وہ نوں مہنے پہلے  یا اک سال کے بعد پیدا ہوتا ہے؟
آج میں یتیم بچوں پہ نہی لکھ رہی مگر لاوارث لفظ کو چھیڑنے کا مقصد یہ ہے کے جو لفظ انسان کو غلام تاریغ سے وراثت میں ملے ہیں ان کو انسانوں پہ تھوپ کے ان کو اپنا غلام بنایا ہے۔
گر دیکھا جائے تو جو دیوار پہ لکھا ہوا ہے اس کو کسی کے دل پہ بھی پڑھ لیا جائے تو کیا ہے؟ اس دھرتی کے سینے پہ کتنے یتیم اور لاوارث دل ہیں جن کے پاس رشتے تو ہے لیکن وہ رشتا نہی جو دل پہ دستکے دے، وہ چہرا نہی جو دُکھی چہرہ پڑھ سکے۔
کبھی سوچہ بھی ہے کہ ہم سب کیتنے یتیم اور لاوارث ہیں۔۔۔؟
انسان کو اس بھری دنیا میں کیا چاہیئے؟ صرف پیار اک انسان دوسرے انسان سے چار الفاظ مگتا ہے اور ہم لوگ جو انسانیت کا ڈھول بجاتے ہے، ہم جنہوں نے جوکرز کی طرح ماکس پہنے ہوئے ہیں ہماری امیر جیبوں میں چار الفاظ بھی نہی ۔۔۔! وہ اک بوڑھی عورت ہم سب کی مدر ٹریسا نے کتنے لوگوں کا ہاتھ تھاما تھا، کتنی یتیم دلوں پہ اپنے پیار کا مرہم رکھا تھا۔
ہم جو مدرٹریسا جسی لیڈی سے کچھ نا سیکھ پائے۔۔۔!
لیکن آج جب ہمارے کانوں پہ جب خبر پڑتی ہے یا سوشل نیٹورکز پیغام سیکینڈز میں آجاتا ہے تو اس پر ہمارہ ردعمل کیسے ہوتا ہے؟
افسوس ۔۔۔ خوشی ۔۔۔ غصے ۔۔۔ یا احتجاج ۔۔۔!
اس خبر کے پیچھے کیسی نے دُکھ کو نہی دیکھا، جیسے ٹریئفک کی بھیڑ میں ہم سب اداس بیچے کو نہی دیکھ پاتے۔ اس طرح ہم خبروں کی بھیڑ میں ہم خبر کے پیچھے چھُپے درد کو نہی سُن پاتے ہیں۔
Late Jiah Khan - online Photo

جیا خان جو اس بار بریکنگ نیوز پہ آ گئی میڈیا اور لوگوں نے جیا خان کو یاد کیا۔۔۔ لیکن جیا کیوں خبر بنی؟  کیا اس کو کوئی بڑا ایوارڈ ملا تھا، نہی جیا خان   نے اپنی زندگی کے آگے فُل اسٹاپ لگا دیا جس کو ہم سب لوگ خودکشی کا نام دیتے ہیں اور دوسری سائیڈ پہ پیرس جیکسن جو 15 سال کی بچی ہے جس کا فادر مائیکل جیکسن  کامیاب ترین سینگر تھا اس کی بٹی جب ٹوئٹر سوشل نیٹورکنگ پہ لکھتی ہے کہ کیوں آنسوں نمکیں ہوتے ہیں؟ اس ٹوئٹ کو کتنے لوگوں نے ری-ٹوئٹ کیا ہوگا!
Paris Jackson-Online photo
لیکن کسی نے بھی اس کے اندر کے غم کو جانا؟ پیرس جیکسن نے اپنی نبض کاٹ دی، آج وہ اسپتال میں ہے۔
خودکشی بزدلی یا بھادری میں اس وقت اس پر بات نہی کروں گی۔ مگر جب کوئی اپنی زندگی پر خودکشی کے دستخط کرتا اس وقت دنیا کے پاس اتنا وقت نہی ہوتا جو دو پل کے لیئے ہاتھ بڑہاکر اس کو تھامیں، آج دنیا نے پڑی ترقی کی ہے لیکن دنیا کیوں دو پل دینے سے کنجوسی کرتی ہے؟
کسی انسان کو تنہاء چھوڑکر اس کی ہر امید کو ختم کیا جاتا ہے۔۔۔!
اب کوئی کتنے بھی لفظ جوڑے کے جیاخان یا پیرس جیکسن کے مسائل کیا تھے؟ ھزاروں لفظوں جو آج ہم ان پر لکھ رہے ہیں ان میں سے چار الفاظ (پیار) کے نہ دے پائے۔۔۔!
جیا خان اور پیرس جیکسن کے قدم پہ سیاسی تجزیانگار یاسمین منگی نے اپنے خیال کا اظہار کیا کہ "ان معصوم لوگوں کے اٹھائے قدموں کو ہمیں سنجیدگی سے دیکھنا چاہیئے کہ آخر یہ عمل امیر کلاس میں زیادہ کیوں ہوتا ہے؟
بہت سی نیوز ہمارے پاس پھچ جاتی ہیں اور زیادہ تر نیوز پردے کے پیچھے رہ جاتی ہیں۔ زیادہ تر امیر طبقا ڈرگس لتا ہے جس میں کمرشل کی دنیا یا پھر بڑے نام رکھنے والے لوگ اپنے آپ کو فٹ رکھنے، ایکٹو رکھنا یا آرام کے لیئے ڈرگس جسی دوائیں استعمال کرتے ہیں، وقتی طور پہ وہ فٹ رہتے ہیں لیکن ان کی ذھن کی قوت کمزور ہوجاتی ہے اور وہ ڈپریشن کا شکار ہوجاتے ہیں جس کی وہ جہ سے ان کے پاس حالت کا مقابلا کرنا مشکل ہوتا ہے۔ مس یاسمین منگی نے کہا کہ اسے وقت میں ان کو دوسرے انسان کے سہارے کی ضرورت ہوتی ہے گر ناملے تو پھر قدم اُٹھا دیتے ہیں، کیوں کہ ذہنی ڈپریشن کی وجہ سے وہ اپنے آپ پے قابو نہی رکھ پاتے۔ کمرشل دنیا میں ڈرگس لینے والوں کے لیئے گر میں لفظ کمرشل ڈرگس استعمال کروں تو غلط نہی ہوگا۔ اس لیئے حکومتوں کو کمرشل ڈرگس کی خریداری پہ سخت پالیسی بنانی چاہیئے ورنہ کمرشل ڈرگس کی وجہ سے لوگ ڈپریشن کا شکار ہونگے، مس یاسمین منگی نے خیال کا اظہار کیا۔"
آن لائن ڈیٹا کے مطابق کہ 486  drug-related deaths  نامور شخصیات ڈرگس کے سبب خودکشی یا گذر گئے جب کہ یہ ڈیٹا پرانی ہے گر اس میں نئیں کیسز شامل کیئے جائے تو بہت ہوجائے گے۔
حکومتیں سرمائیداری کی جب پہ ہاتھ کسے ڈالے گی اور اس کو کمرشل ڈرگس کو روکنے کے لیئے کیا قدم بھی اُٹھائے گی؟
آج کی دنیا کمرشل بن چکی ہے اس کمرشل گلی سے گذرنہ بہت مشکل کام ہے اور وہ بھی اس انسان کا جو بہت حساس ہو جس کی حساسیت کومل کے قطرے سے بھی بہت زیادہ حساس ہو۔
آج جو ہمارے کندھوں پہ معصوم جیاخان کی لاش پڑی ہے یا پھر پیرس جیکسن ہاسپیٹل کے بیڈ پہ پڑی ہے اور سب لوگ جنہوں نے اپنی زندگی پہ خودکشی کے دستخط کیئے۔
وہ سبھی یتیم دلیں آج اس کمرشل اور امیر دنیا سے سوال کرتی ہیں کہ کیا کچھ پل نہی ہے  کہ کسی یتیم دل کے درد کو سُن لینا؟
ہم جو ریاست کی دیوار پہ لکھے ہر لفظ پڑھ لتے ہیں لیکں یتیم دلیوں پہ لیکھے دو الفاظ بھی نہی پڑھ سکتے؟
اس سوال کا جواب آج میں پڑہنے والوں پہ چھوڑتی ہوں۔
