This is an observation based on reaction to Educated Muslims to many normal and controversial events.
You have right to agree or disagree.
Dr. Mustafa Kamal Sherwani,LL.D.is a lawyer from Lucknow, India. He is a great poet as well.
He is proud about the defiance of Iran against the world community and its pursuit of nuclear weapons.
He argues that since US and its powerful allies of West have got
nuclear weapon, they have no rights to tell Iran not to develop nuclear
At high level, it would sound logical. But, he wouldn't think
further to understand, why the world is worried about the nuclear
weapons of Pakistan and not India - although both are nuclear powers.
It is because the relatively weaker Islamic countries, who are far
far behind in modern unconventional warfare, jealous and hostile about
the wealth of USA and West, are state sponsors of Terrorism. They think
that - since they can never win in a direct war, they would breed
Islamic Terrorists using their Exclusive Islamic Schools (Madarssas)
and state sponsored Terrorist Training camps, to cause Maximum damage to their perceived enemy in a proxy war. i.e. Pakistan's war against would be fought by LeT and Iran's war against israel and USA would be fought by Hezbollah or Hamas.
As you can see, Pakistan's father of nuclear weapon Mr. A.Q.Khan
smuggled nuclear technology after violating all the secrecy and
non-disclosure agreements of his employer. The world has learnt its
lesson and hence, in America's defense related projects - only US
Citizens with specific level of secret clearance are allowed to work.
Today, Chinese Government has been trying to smuggle all latest
technology from USA.
But apparently Dr. Mustafa Kamal Sherwani, a highly qualified
individual have got a skewed or biased world view because of which he
is unable to see the difference between responsible nuclear powers
US-UK-Germany-India-Australia and Pakistan-Iran-North Korea etc.
Why only Dr. Mustafa Kamal Sherwani, the
US Presidential candidate hopeful Dr. Ron Paul also got a similar world
view. Many Muslims praise Dr. Paul's world view and support Iran. [Upright Opinion: Hats off to Congressman Ron Paul -By Saeed Qureshi ] [Nuclear-Israel versus a Nuclear-Free Iran -By Yamin Zakaria ] [ Islamic Revolution in Iran : emerging piety power paradigm. -By Dr Ghayur Ayub ]
That said, I would like to conclude that there are two kinds of Educated people with diametrically opposite world views.
1. Educated and ideological - All the Muslims of
this world + US Congressmen Dr. Ron Paul and his young supporters.
Muslims have a common tendency of siding with Muslims irrespective of
their country of birth. e.g. Indian Muslims don't ask Pakistan to return
PoK, silent about Afzal Guru's delay in hanging ; but they demand Israel
to become a secular country, accommodate some Palestinians and return
rest of the lands to Palestine.
2. Educated and Logical -the rest of the world except those counted under 1
What is your take on this ?
Here is poet Dr. Mustafa Kamal Sherwani's take on this..
Oh my dear Ahmadinejad !
************ ********* ****
Your boldness emits the rays of faith ,
Your words are a mirror of your belief ;
Your austerity shows the saintly flavor ,
Your resolve is the source of my relief .
On your side lies the Might of God ,
Against you is arrayed the mighty West ;
Your brothers are trembling with fear ,
You are standing bravely with open chest .
Places and regions may have a change ,
But the truth of parables will never end ;
If Pharaoh has an abode in American soil ,
You will be like Moses with a divine wand .
Persian Gulf will become the waters of Nile ,
For ever the arrogant will be buried deep
The human history will preserve their tales ,
Over their fate, nobody will wail and weep .
Nature can never bear this colossal sin ,
Those sitting on the heaps of nuclear arm ;
Want to punish you ,as they wish to be safe
From your peaceful energy , with no harm .
Dr. Mustafa Kamal Sherwani,LL.D.
