    When you become a Dog to the Brits, they give you the title of "sir".
    And yet there are people who feel pride in that state of shamelessness.

    Bahawalpur's contributions to Pakistan is a huge deal, they merged their state army to create the Pakistan Army and Bahawalpur's treasury kept the Pakistani economy and Government afloat.

    The Nawab of Bahawalpur can even be considered one of the founders of Pakistan.

    We dont respect him for his loyalities to brits but for his sacrifices and love for Pakistan. Learn a bit about him before posting rediculous things.

    Then do you also detest him for his loyalties to the Brits? If not then do you find that problemtic as it sounds kinda selfish?


    And little do I care about a person who enslaved his populace to the Brits just to stay alive and in power.
    Becoming a saint does not acquit any one of murder, same stands true for doing acts of good after having earned the title of "sir" while being a Nawab/Raja/King and being a slave of the brits and traitor to the land.

    Praise him for whatever he did for Pak, but turning a blind eye to the flaws and only seeing one side of the picture is good hypocrisy.
    But do tell me what he has done for the poor of Bahawalpur apart from his favors on the Pakistani govt to earn his way to stay in power in the new setup?
    This is like Zordari embarking on a journey to feed the poor of Sindh to earn his way out of prison, and you calling him a hero, instead of throwing him in the jail.

    Yes, I maybe wrong and I should not judge people's intentions but I like being the devil's advocate when it comes to cowards who lack what it takes to stand up for what is right, instead of earning their way to life and luxury by being cowards. And a person who is a ruler has ten times the responsibility.

    Tell me about those who stood their ground and died like men and I'll definitely like the tag "knowing my heroes".
    The likes of Tipu Sultan, Rani Lakhmi of Jhansi, Bhagat Singh, Netaji SCB, and countless other unnamed warriors who fought against oppression for the freedom of their people.

    He was honored for his high stature.
    Not because he sold his state and soul to the empire of Brits.


    My ancestors were Rajputs ruling the city of Sialkot from the Sialkot fort until Mughals took over.
    The ones after them went along fine with brits and ofcourse that was their choice and I'm not them.

    The way is to stand and die like men. Everything else is self humiliation and filthy.

    And no, not "everyone" was loyal to the brits at any or every stage.
    Take the examples I gave you before and tell me which one among them was loyal to brits at some point?
    Were they not human? Or came down from the Sky directly?
    It's a choice of living like a man or cowardly like women. And those people chose to be men, even Rani Laxmi was more manly than most men you refer to.
    And yes, its stupidity for those who lack what it takes ;)


    Not every one has to agree with my point of view, but if I was there back then, I would have been out there fighting and would have lived and died like a man.

    Then keep quite. Being a dog of brits is their choice. Then sacrificing everything they have for Pakistan was also their choice. And my respect for him is also my choice as i found him worthy of respect. Thank you

    Allama Iqbal and Sir Syed were not state heads but revolutionaries.
    Except they


    Referring to the head of so called states who decided to be the cowardly slaves of the brit empire instead of waging war on them as dogs is my choice as well then mate.
    Let's respect both our choices ;)
