“Conventional society and free Social Media”

Neither everything is meant to be shared nor everyone deserve to know everything about you…Specially your personal life!!!

We human beings live among various social circles. The closest blood relationships with parents, our siblings then relatives, neighbors and acquaintances, class fellows and work fellows as well. As a matter of fact, our behavior/attitude within each of our social circle is different; the level of closeness, esteem and frankness varies from one group to the other. Not everything could be commonly shared between these social circles. Our maturity level and treatment to various people also gets advanced with age. Whereas Social media keeps everyone at the same level giving the equal opportunities to all without the distinctions just explained, everyone is a ‘friend’ on social media. In my humble opinion, there can never be such a separation of our relationships levels on social media due to its domain, which is an un-natural thing.

Social media has revolutionized the process of human interaction and wonders can happen with a touch of finger. In our daily lives today, we often give references of events encountered on the social media posts and discussions undergone on various topics. Whole world can look into what you have shared and what are your views. However, most of us are not very good in setting up our privacy up to reasonable extent thus live vulnerable online life. Therefore, the amount of damage is immeasurable due to unintended mistakes. Even if you setup privacy, you can never be sure of how far your activities may reach!

Today, we share our social gatherings with friends and families. We cannot travel without sharing updated status, we have to tell the whole world what food we are eating, where and with whom to digest it properly. All of this is meaningless to many others but they have access to all our personal activities. What is the need of showing your new house or expansive car to the whole world? What about those who cannot afford to travel, or eat such expansive food. Why post fake smiles, who are we making fool?

Most crucial part comes in when people share their family lives. Is there really a need of sharing wedding pictures of you and your extended family with everyone? Sharing honeymoon travel and pictures, is it obligatory? Personal relationships between Husband and wife are an extremely private thing; today why people forget this and share private pictures and emotions openly. Above all, facing various questions even from irrelevant persons about your personal life, which could be avoided if you had use the sharing buttons wisely. Are likes that much important to us? I am unable to understand why people expose their life partners to the whole world. One of the issues of sharing too much can be that you are providing people with chances to comment on your personal lives. When you are sharing your happy lives openly, bear in mind that the factor of “Nazr-e-Badd”/ jealousy also comes into play as a bitter reality.

One related thing that comes into mind is that free-mixing was never that easy before which now has new dimensions. Even stranger Male and Females can add each other, talk freely; you can see anyone personal pictures and videos as they upload their stories. Often same people in real life claim to be preserving to strangers and obeying veil while on street; they should think for a second that their pictures and videos can also damage their modesty and could go in hands the exploiters. Up to 1990’s it was considered an out of world thing to get a picture or number of girls but now both things are available on fingertips. Have the moral values of society changed altogether?

That reticence/parda between our various social circles is very important and should be kept in mind while doing anything on social media. I know many of wise people who are very selective in what they share and some do not share even a single-family picture on social media channels. Some people have even left this online world to live a content life with their family. Technology has given us chances to keep our things more private such as sharing the personal items within relevant groups through WhatsApp messenger, which is far better than sharing it openly and loudly on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

My sincere suggestion to all is that please think many times before you share. Do not expose yourself too much because you never know real intentions of others; please do not become a joke. Although Facebook has introduced blocking options but I have experience that this is not helpful all the time because all of your contacts would not have applied same filters. The media entices you to share your feelings and you can become a prey anytime to share un-necessary items. It easy to share but it’s almost difficult to wipe out our your web footprint. Preserving our cultural values should be an integral part of our efforts for a safe future.

“War of Perception: Cunning Neighbors and Ignorant friends”

Reviewing India’s fake propaganda history and TO DO’s for Pakistan!

On 18th September, 2016; four gunmen attacked an Indian Army brigade headquarters in Uri, near the Line of Control. 17 Indian army personnel were killed in the attack. As expected, Indian media and security officials put the blame on Pakistan. Like each terrorist event in past, Indian media heated the beat and linked it to Pakistan minutes after the event occurred without any solid evidence. Nevertheless lately, the world yet again saw India’s baseless allegations against Pakistan proved to be wrong after Indian NIA cleared the alleged duo Faizal Hussain Awan and his friend Yasin Khurshid, inhabitants of Azad Kashmir as no evidence was found against them. But much damage was done as India took advantage of these attacks into the last year’s UNGA terming Pakistan as a terrorist state. The idea was to defame and ‘isolate’ Pakistan on a global scale and divert the world’s attention from the continuous human rights violation by Indian forces in occupied Kashmir.

This isn’t the first instance of manipulation of evidence by Indian security officials. Indian security agencies have also been blamed for staging terror attacks within the country which have also caused the casualties of Indian civilians. Almost all of Indian false flag have been accepted as inside jobs by their own officials time to time. (Quoted from external source)

India faced a global humiliation upon their claimed surgical strikes along the LOC last year after the Uri attacks. Again, Indian media created a supersonic hype against Pakistan followed by their celebrities tweeting with proud backing to so-called brave attempt. All of this perception was soon dissolved in thick air after detailed briefing from ISPR (Pakistan Army) to the media alongside L.O.C. But still no sign of any regret or acceptance from India!

Pathankot attacks were also of similar nature and metal in which Indian media started blaming Pakistan right from the word go but later findings pointed some doubtful proceedings leaving it as another inside job.

The arrest of notorious Ajmal Kasab claimed linkage with 2008 Mumbai attacks by Indian security officials is also doubtful and does not hold much credibility. The foremost evidence is the language pronunciation of Kassab during his aired interview; his words and delivery style does not even fall anywhere near to the type of Urdu spoken in Pakistan. Former Indian inspector-general S M Mushrif had claimed in his book ‘Who killed Karkare?’ that AjmalKasab was arrested before 2006 from Kathmandu by the Indian agency RAW with the help of Nepalese forces. The book summarizes that Ajmal was arrested for the purpose to be presented as a substantial ‘evidence’ for ‘terror attacks’ even before they took place. The former IGP went on to say that it is a common practice in India to apprehend innocent folks from Kathmandu and other parts and present them as terrorists after undue detention. (Quoted from external source)

The list of Indian lies and false flags is long and tedious which includes Malegaon attacks alleging Lashkar-e-taiba & Jaish-e-Muhammad or attacks on Samjhota express burning 70 odd Pakistanis to ashes; they first blamed Lashkar-e-taiba but later here were signs if involvement of Indian nationalist group. Notably the 2008 Mumbai attacks and 2001 Indian parliament attacked were orchestrated as revealed by RVS Mani a former secretary in Indian home ministry. Similarly aircraft Ganga was a plotted hijack aimed to cut of air ties between then East and West Pakistan.

India works on the ideology of Chankiya dreaming of making Akhand Bharat in which Pakistan remains the sole obstacle. They use their media as a weapon to spread lies in such a way that it seems a reality. By the grace of Allah, all these plots and games were exposed by their own people with the passage of time. There case is so weak that they cannot face us if we stand strong on our grounds but ironically we fall short due to lack of statesmanship. Unfortunately we do not have a strong foreign office to face such tricks of India and other enemies at large; even a foreign minister is not there for unknown reasons. The need is to built up our case against Indian narrative and tell the world about their history of deception. Strong proofs of Indian involvement in Baluchistan and Karachi need to be shown to the world; Kalboshan Yadev needs to be used a tool of exposing dirty politics of India in the region. It’s about time to engage Afghanistan and Iran which are being used by India to do crimes against our Pak-Sarzameen.

Government/establishment alone cannot cope up with the propaganda war laid by India. Despite of doing a good job in their capacity, our electronic media has to rise up to obey their national duty of defending motherland at all costs in the footsteps of patriotic social media sections. Such news Channels who even found out the house of Ajmal Kassab inside Pakistan should be made accountable for their acts. Pakistan’s condition and facts & figures are far better than India and many other countries but we fall short in showing the real face of Pakistan and creating a positive perspective which could wash our negative image for good.

Even after seeing everything that has happened to us in past years, still countries like China and Turkey are standing with us as brothers; Russia looking forward to a strong future relationship with Pakistan sensing some serious progress in the form of CPEC and beyond. Just imagine what the situation could have been if our foreign office was working properly presenting our case to the world with the support of electronic media and public. Allah has always supported us, let’s start supporting ourselves.

Destructive topics in Pakistani Dramas!

“Reviewing current trend of unhealthy topics like Divorce and invitation for producing healthy dramas with strong topics!!!”
In my school days, there was a scenario in a drama named ‘Ye Zindagi’ featuring Nauman Aijaz and Mah Noor Baloch. After a brisk love marriage, the couple broke up soon after; however, after realizing this fatal mistake the husband suggested “Halalah” to his ex-wife. This was a new term for me and straight away I asked my father “Dad what is this Halalah?”. My father somehow handled my question and told that was just nothing…Remember, that time was almost ending period of golden Pakistani dramas. Indian dramas soon captured our market for quite a significant amount of time during early 2000’s. Pakistani drama then fought back its way lately and even influenced the Indian market due to some good dramas. This was indeed a good feeling for seasoned viewers of Pakistani dramas.
It has been noticed that our dramas are yet again falling behind of topics as most of the stories are circulating around the marriage issue of loving man and woman. These are filmed in very sophisticated locations/ homes but the inmates are displaying ultimate immoral attitude and filthy family politics. I have noticed that relationship of husband–wife in many current dramas is shown in complicated status which ends up in Divorce. The scene of fight and shooting 3 words of Talaq are shown often as if it’s a very normal thing and part of our society.

I can certainly recall that during my childhood days’, divorce was never too often discussed within sections of society but with the passage of time and influence of abundantly produced dramas; Divorce has become a very common topic. Remember this is most unlikeable Halal act in Islam. We can see the impacts of showing/discussing this topic as the lives of many media celebrities are very unstable and also the rate of divorce is rising within society. Young innocent minds are definitely catching up this and can practice it very well in their practical life without realizing the real consequences. The environment in which you live your life counts a lot for you and watching such topics certainly makes their place in sub-conscious of mind and can get you in such a situation where a minor conflict can result in fatal event of Divorce.Stop-Separation-and-Divorce-Problems

We have to be responsible in protecting this noble institution of marriage by influencing positive topics to flourish this relationship. Instead of complicated Husband-Wife relationships, why can’t we cover strong bond and examples of how they supported each other during times of financial crisis or in case of severe health problems? Every other day, we can see highlights of many brilliant stories of common Pakistanis on various social media platforms like “Humans of Pakistan”; we can make many dramas out of them. I cannot forget fantastic pictures/stories covered by Brandon Stenton of “Humans of New York” while he visited Pakistan back in 2015. Why not glorify our enthusiastic and most resilient people instead of showing cunning stories of disgrace and betrayal between them?

There are hundreds of genuine topics speared in the society including life cycle of overseas expatriate people and their families back home. Topics related with various ongoing army operations and their effects on related people.  Topics related to the success stories of un-known heroes may well be covered as pay back to them; this would certainly inspire others. We can cover lives of our forgotten heroes (and living heroes) from education, science, arts, armed forces and sports. Dramas can be made covering issues related with special children and their status in the society. Media can cover conditions of people related with various organizations such as Pakistan railways, PIA, Sui-Gas and private media itself to make people realize efforts and issues related to them and better understand their lives. Above all, on the education and training side; topics covering the ideology of Pakistan depicting true goals for which Pakistan was created must be shown as a national duty.
TV channels can invite and appreciate young authors for getting fresh out of the box stories. I am certain that different and genuine topics shall definitely grab more audience and shall certainly be equally or even more successful in the monetary terms as well. We can certainly work our way towards improving society by taking such steps.
Let’s realize the important of topics covered in our dramas and take a first step today!
