Shahid Ahmed Dehlvi used to publish literary papers from Delhi. He was a master of literary style and the author of several books. After the partition of India, he migrated to Karachi and continued his literary and academic activities there. He also published Saqi from Karachi. When he released the first issue, he wrote about the political situation and the spread of the time in his editorial.
The founder of Pakistan had passed away by then, and Shahid Ahmed Dehlvi mentioned his bitter words, praising his political services and his leadership of the Muslims of India. It seems as if the editorial was written about today’s conditions.
I can see deep red blood in my tears, Today, I see a stab wound on my sleeve.
Finally, the time came that the prayers of millions of Muslims could not stop, and the Quaid-e-Azam left us. Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilayhi Raji’un. He is now where our aspirations lie. The death of the Quaid-e-Azam is actually a great victory for life, just as the madmen of dreams have won over the champions of reality and achieved such a glorious victory that it is not found in the history of the world. He lifted Muslims from the ground and placed them in the sky. He revived a dead nation and created a new country for them.
The new country of Pakistan is not only the largest Islamic country in the world but also powerful in every way, so much so that Muslims worldwide consider it their refuge and support. Quaid-e-Azam fulfilled the purpose of his life and left us. It is sad that he left us when we needed him the most, and Muslims are facing challenges from all sides.
Our leader is no longer with us. Some solace can be found in the fact that his teachings and guidance are in our hearts, but will we be able to follow them? Since his departure, our rosy dreams have turned into thorns. Can we save ourselves from these thorns? Selfishness, self-indulgence, injustice, bias, disbelief, and above all, the most dangerous element among us is that which is working against us! Can we confront all of this successfully? Certainly, as long as we follow the guidance of Quaid-e-Azam.
