Save heritage means providing path of existence to coming generation!


Civilization is the soul of nations; you are nothing if you do not know the language of art. When you are born on the earth from that moment your relationship is bound to culture.
Our forefathers/foremothers gave us beautiful civilization and it is our obligation to save their souls. Being as the heir of the Indus Civilization, people should and must support Mr. Bilawal Bhutto’s initiate to protect our lost souls of this land.

Unfortunate, neither is government paying attention to historical places, nor our common people are interested in protecting them. Sense of ownership is going to be eroded, why is it happening? However, once again voices are raising to protect the cultural heritage that is dying. We need to save them and we have been writing on issues that government and people must come and save the historical places.

If we look around our society even people are not taking care about ancient places. Thus, ancient places are not only old buildings; indeed they are our mirror in which we can see ourselves. I have remembered lines of thinker who writes that “if people do not care about their history and heritage then you will see death of that people. If you do not save your past, you are unable to survive in the present.”

Sindh is not only a province but it has cradle of Indus Civilization that is the Diamond Crown of land. People of Indus Civilization, had worked beautifully when other parts of the world were trying to learn art of living and our Dravidian (People of Indus Civilization) made civilized city of Mohenjo-daro.

What does Mohenjo-daro think of itself to have been dying everyday? Let me share with you that Sindh has many historical places are shrouded with dust. Does our civilization mix with dust?

Now, young energetic leader Bilawal Bhutto is coming up with an idea (Save our cultural heritage) and doing work virtually. Those leaders who understand the importance of history, they know how to deal with on-going problems and abnormal situations of the country. 

Mr. Bilawal Bhutto is calling for to save the cultural historical places and providing platform, people from across the country and even out of the countries can give suggestions and help. One help-hand can save the soul of history. Can we give our helping hand to it?

Lilee Bheel! Is Sorrow of Mother not listened?


Mourn and Sorrow both have as story as they had for their ages. I do not understand that how I should give words to another sorrow of a mother whose daughter has been kidnapped on 5th November, 2013 in
Shaheed Benazir Abad, previously known as Nawabshah District of Sindh, Pakistan.
Eyes of state are incapable of seeing the mourn of mother, her heart is weeping and begging that “Please give me my daughter I will leave Pakistan, our daughters are not safe here. What a tragedy, indigenous of people Indus civilization, now to be counted into box of minorities, is it justice of History?

I have been closely analyzing the cases of Hindu Girls from Rinkle Kumari to now current case of Lilee Bheel, all girls have been kidnapped in the name of religion, raped and forcibly converted to Islam. What have courts done with these cases, yet?

Whilst writing, let me confess that I live in a country where dictators can take over the power and kill people, awami leaders and breach the constitution and legislative power. Dictators came in the power in the name of being safeguard of this country and on other side ill-minds can kidnap the innocent girls, in the name of religion. Courts of justice are unable to ask or punish them because crimes are done in the name of …!

Reading newspaper of 5th November, 2013 and came across news, tells me that once again another girl is kidnapped, her name is Lilee Bheel. A man who kidnapped her, his name is Mehrab Marri. Her mother’s name is Raazi Bheel and she was sitting in the middle of the road, mourning that thugs can forcibly convert her to another religion.
Local Police has refused to register their case. Shall I ask that, is police there only to protect criminals? Why are we receiving different meaning, everyday, of justice and institutes of law enforcement?
Courts can grant bail to the Ex-dictator Musharraf whose hands are involved in crimes but queen of justice doesn’t ask single word. Courts do not listen to the case of Hindu girls and, on contrast, allow thugs to take them.
Local Police is refusing to file the case. Comical! At least, if state of courts cannot do justice, then file their FIR on a single page but poor people are not receiving this justice to get their cases filed either.

Hopes never die. Again, some hearts are listening to the voice of poor people in the desert.

Mr. Bilawal Bhutto Patron-in-chief PPP who took immediate initiative and following other people tweeted in response of this burning case.

However, strange people are asking that “what can Mr. Bilawal Bhutto do in case?” Well, cannot they listen to his voice who is taking notice though this is the duty of incumbent statesmen and courts? He is paying rapt attention to these cases with his pragmatic approach.

According to Sindhi saying, “our people use to saying that do not come but give call to us when you find us in trouble, your voice is enough that someone is there for us.” Whereas Poor people of Pakistan know that Justice is not for them but some voices must be there.

I have no idea, whether Lilee Bheel would be back to her home or not. As I have bitter experience of previous cases, when all Hindu girls had been kidnapped and courts did not allow them going with their parents.

I am only thinking of a mother whose destiny was not to sit in the middle of the road and while mourning, to call her daughter that Give me my daughter back but it is the injustice of this state that has made such kind of situation. Is Sorrow of mother is not listened? I leave this question to the statesmen and queen of justice, may they answer!
