Nazaria-i-Pakistan Center (NPC) – An Introduction 

Nazaria-i-Pakistan Center was founded on 14th august 2007 as a non-profit public policy organization based in Pakistan. It functions as a think tank, advocacy group and public outreach organization independent of government. NPC seeks to promote knowledge-based opinion making for strengthening Islamic civilization, the core base of two nations theory. NPC engages policy-makers, media organizations, civil society, state institutions and academia with a view to maximizing space for its intellectual and advocacy activities at the national, regional and global level.

Nazaria-i-Pakistan Center is an intellectual institution upholding Islamic values and Islamic civilization, as enunciated in Quran and Sunnah. NPC Objectives are wide and varied, requiring long and sustained efforts. Since its inception the Center has undertaken a series of steps for popularizing Islamic values through speeches, addresses, seminars, discussions, debating contests among college and school students, essay writing and book exhibitions on related themes. The Nazaria-i-Pakistan is in fact another name for our Islamic spirit and character. Nazaria-i-Pakistan is Nazaria-i-Islam.

“Life in our brother Islamic countries, in general, is in consonance with Islamic values and may not require this aspect to be stressed. In South Asia, however, the situation is different because of the Hindu population which poses a perpetual challenge to our ideology and way of life. This Hindu confrontation springs from their polytheistic and caste-ridden religious and emotional makeup against Islam’s monotheism and casteless creed. This ideological chasm between the Hindu and the Muslim ways of life resulted in the parting of ways in almost all spheres of life, customs and culture, names and nomenclature, history and tradition, language and literature, art and architecture, laws and moral codes, beliefs and sense of values. There are sharp differences even in what they eat. These very disparities combined form the basis of the Two Nation Theory. This was not a matter of mere hair-splitting but an everyday fact of life, which one cannot fail to feel in almost every sphere of human activity. This then is the crux and substance of the Two Nation Theory, which formed the basis of British India’s partition in two independent Hindu and Muslim States. The Hindu majority areas of India formed India and the Muslim majority regions came together under the unique name of Pakistan. On this very principle the Muslim majority state of Jammu and Kashmir was to be part of Pakistan. But the Hindus, deceitfully, landed their troops in Kashmir and established their hegemony in half of the state. It is this Hindu treachery which the freedom fighters of Kashmir are now striving to undo. On the same premises Quaid-i-Azam dismissed the wishes of the Hindus and the British colonialists for a joint Hindu Muslim nationhood as a pipe dream. With single-minded devotion be fought against this menace and succeeded in getting the idea of a separate Muslim identity recognized. In the 28th annual session of the Muslim League in 1941 in Madras, Quaid-i-Azam formally declared this objective as the ideology of the Muslim League. It is this very ideology which is known today as ‘Nazaria-i-Pakistan’.”

“A very important factor that the Hindus held an overwhelming majority in overall population over the Muslims in the Sub-continent, has to be kept in mind. Had the Indian Sub-continent remained a single country after the end of the British rule, its government would have always been in the hands of the Hindus. In that eventuality the Muslims would have been relegated permanently to a state of subordination and subjugation. The Muslims were not prepared to accept that situation. Fortunately, the Muslims enjoyed a majority population status in the North-Western and the Eastern regions of the Sub-continent. Thus emerged the concept of a separate Muslim State combining these Muslim majority areas. On 23 March 1940, at the historic session of the Muslim League in Lahore, this concept was turned into a clear, definite demand for partitioning of the Sub-continent and establishment of a Muslim state. In little over seven years, through a great mass struggle, known as the Pakistan Movement, led by the Quaid-i-Azam, Pakistan appeared on the map of the world on 14 August 1947. Ideological states, for the very reason that they have an ideology to live by, are prone to challenges from hostile adversaries, who have their own missions to accomplish. At times these forces seem to be gaining ground but the truth always bounces back with more vigor to restore the order. Despite lack of resources and unfair geographical dispensation, Pakistan, by the Grace of God, has made great strides in several sectors like industry, agriculture trade, education, banking, communication, etc. It has attained the prestigious status of a Nuclear Power. However, it has yet to achieve its goal of building a Modern, Islamic, Welfare society in its true sense. After the achievement of Pakistan, it was incumbent upon us to strengthen the spiritual, moral and material foundations of our nationhood and to lead the nation to the path of intrinsic and extrinsic merit as dictated by our Ideology. This, unfortunately, did not happen. After independence, an insidious culture of self promotion, vested interests and greed began to flourish such practices gave way to frustration which developed into disgruntlement. Stray voices began to be heard against the very concept of Pakistan. Something had gone amiss! Something that needed to be rectified forthwith. A cross-section of the new generation began to emerge with shadows of doubt and insecurity lurking in their eyes instead of the starry lights of hope and good cheer. The house had to be called to order, not by the clichés of superficial slogans but by logical and well thought out revival of the Two Nation Theory in the light of the present situation and a bright future intended for the country. It was fully realized that ideological states which abandon their ideologies are left with no basis for their survival. The establishment of Pakistan put a stop to the realization of the dream of Hindu’s to break our Islamic spirit and character. Unending scenes of bloody communal strife since independence in India further demonstrated the vicious working of the Hindu mind. In 1947 it looked as if the Muslims of the Sub-continent, after two hundred years of British domination, were to be pushed into a far worse scenario of living as subservient subjects under a Hindu supremacist regime. Pakistan, as a matter of fact, provided a haven for the Muslims of the Sub-continent, where they could live their lives, both temporal and spiritual, in peace, dignity and harmony. The cornerstone of this haven was laid by great Muslim leaders such as, Muhammad Bin Qasim, Sultan Mahmood Ghaznavi, Emperor Aurangzeb, Sultan Tipu Shaheed, Syed Ahmed Shaheed, Haji Shariat Ullah, Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, Titu Mir, Nawab Saleem Ullah, Maulana Muhammad Ali Jauhar and a host of dignitaries provided the necessary wherewith all. Blood of a million martyrs cemented its foundations and finally an edifice was raised to the design and specifications of Allama Iqbal. It was a symbol of Islamic Renaissance carrying Pakistan’s message of peace, universal brotherhood, and goodwill to the rest of the world. Today this haven stands as a glorious light house, glowing with a myriad beacons representing the sacrifices of the Muslims of the Sub-continent, not the least of the Indian Muslims, who remained in the forward bloc, knowing full well that they may not, all, be able to migrate to Pakistan to live in the new Muslim country for the creation of which they had themselves offered super human sacrifices in many ways, which has no parallel in the History of the mankind.”
