JZ'S ARTICLE: ALL LEADERS, PLEDGE TO SERVE PEOPLE IN REALITY


ALL LEADERS, PLEDGE TO  
SERVE PEOPLE IN REALITY
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION
 & HUMAN RIGHTS AWARD WINNER
TORONTO: Congratulations to all those elected in the provincial elections 2018 of Ontario. Although it is only a dream now but it is still hoped that they will all work together and honestly pledge to respect the voters and the precious votes and Serve The People In Reality.  
John Tory, the Mayor of Toronto, is doing a wonderful job and serving the city in reality.  He is an honest, good and a true leader. His contributions are simply tremendous and performance remarkable.
       Now let us see how the party with majority votes (76), PC party of Ontario, and its leader Doug Ford perform and to serve the people and the province.  
       There are grave concerns in some communities, particularly the Muslim community. They have to be addressed and removed.
       They cannot forget Stephen Harper and his PC party’s bad, discriminatory and harmful policies. It was a worst nightmare. It is hoped that the PC party of Ontario does not follow the same bad trend and cause harm to the people and the province.  
       Doug Ford and his party must focus on the burning issues. They must listen to what the people say, demand and want otherwise they will be shunted out with disgrace.
We still cherish the good old days when the good and true leaders used to serve the people and the country in reality.
When the elections were fair and the leaders and policymakers were honest and sincere and respected the voters and votes. The importance of the precious vote was realized.
Those were the leaders who gave us a good society, system, laws, prosperity, stability and respect worldwide. All people and communities enjoyed best quality of life with affordability. It was all based on practical efforts and tremendous contributions. It was all based on the reality of live and work together.  
All the elected leaders, I know that it is extremely hard to serve the people in reality because the political and most groups and bodies are gripped and controlled by the mafia by the mafia and extremely powerful powers and invisible lobbies Both the parties and leaders are dictated by them to serve their vested interests. They damn care whether the country and the people are harmed. They are the ones responsible for making the lives of miserable, which leads to increase in crimes. The mafia is behind all sufferings.
Under the mafia’s influence, grip and control, we cannot say that we have democracy. In reality, it is demoncracy where the parties and leaders are helpless. The get the votes but cheat the voters. So in such a situation, now the elections are meaningless. The worth of our precious vote is like garbage. We go and put it the garbage bins.
Yes, there is a real solution. Only the good, honest and true leaders with support of the people can get rid of the mafia and give us democracy.
The Liberal Part of Ontario and Premier Kathleen Wynne paid a heavy price by trusting exploiters, hypocrites, rain frogs and community leaders with bad reputation and their character and selfish contributions exposed. In reality they were tools of the mafia. People don’t even deserve to become simple workers were made directors. This is why this time I gave my vote to Khalid Ahmed of NDP. This young member of the South Asian community is working hard and showing good improvement. Andrea Howarth, leader of the NDP, should pay special attention on him. He is talented and has a bright future ahead. People feel that proper attention was not paid on Khalid otherwise he would have got more votes and possibly emerge victorious.

JZ'S ARTICLE: KHOTEY SIKKOUN KA RAJ, PAKISTANIYUN PE ZULM


MARCH 30, 2018
KHOTEY SIKKOUN KA RAJ,
  PAKISTANIYUN PE ZULM
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION  & HUMAN RIGHTS AWARD WINNER
        TORONTO: Kia Pakistan Sirf Aur Sirf Musalmanoun Ke Liye Banaya Gaya. Kia Yahan Dosri Qaumoun Aur Mazhab Ke Logoun Ke Liye Koi Gunjaish Nahi Thi Aur Na Hai?
        Hargiz Nahi. Quaid-eAzam Muhammad Ali Jinnah Ka Ye Khuwab Aur Vision Hargiz Nahi Tha. Wo Tu Pakistan Ko Islam Ka Wo Qila Banana Chahtey Thay Jahan Sub Ko Barabar Ka Darja, Haq Aur Insaf Milay Aur Loug Izzat, Muhabbat Aur Sakoon Ke Saath Khushi Khushi Rahain Aur Mil Jul Kar Kaam Karain Aur Achi Zindagi Guzarain.
Magar Afsos Sadh Afsos Aisa Nahi Huwa. Apna Sub Kuch Luta Kar Aur Barbaad Hokar Jo Muhajir Musalmaan Pakistan Aye Thay Aur Jo Ghareeb, Masoom Aur Mazloom Loug Pakistan Mein Pehle Se Reh Rahey Thay Aur Chaudhriyoun, Sardaroun Aur Waderoun Ki Budtareen Ghulami Kar Rahay Thay Aur Aaj Bhi Kar Rahay Hain Unke Saath Kaisa Dardnaak Aur Haulnaak Salook Huwa. Musalmaan Muhajiroun Ko Koi Machar, Koi Makkarh, Koi Ghaddar Aur Na Jaaney Kitnay Behuda Namoun Se Pukara Jaaney Laga Aur Aaj Bhi Pukara Jaata Hai. Kisi Qaum Ne Chahey Wo Punjabi, Sindhi, Balochi Ya Pathan Ho Ney Muhajir Musalmanoun Ko 1947 Se Lekar Aaj Tak Dil Se Qabool Nahi Kia Aur Nafrat Ki Nigah Se Dekhtey Rahay.
In Sub Batoun, Nafratoun, Zillatoun Aur Buray Halaat Aur Salook Ke Zimmeydar Kaun Thay. Shayad Aap Bhool Gaye Hain Tu Mein Aap Ko Yaad Dilata Hoon. Ji Haan Wo Hain Ghaddar, Makkar Aur Kaminey Khotey Sikkay Hain Jinka Zikr Jinnah Ne Khood Kia Tha.
        Wo Ye Kehney Pe Majboor Ho Gaye Thay Ki Meri Jeb Mein Khotey Sikkay Hain. Unko Apni Maut Aur Pakistan Ki Tabahi Saaf Nazar Aarahi Thi Aur Aisa He Huwa Wo Insan Numa Jungli Aur Wehshi Darindoun Ke Narghay Mein Phuns Chuke Thay.
        Jinnah Ko Tu Wo Pakistan Mila Jis Ki Zameen Par Darinday Dundanatay Phir Rahay Thay Aur Maut Raks Aur Intizar Kar Rahi Thi.
        Phir Aisa He Huwa. Pehle Jinnah, Phir Liaquat Ali Khan Aur Akhir Mein Fatima Jinnah Ko Qatal Kia Gaya. Is Tarha Pakistan Ke Teen Mazbot Satoon Gira Diye Gaye Aur Giraney Waley Aur Koi Nahi Yehi Corrupt, Badmash Aur Ghaddar Fauji Generals Aur Siasatdaan Aur Unke Chelay Chapatay Thay Jinka Taaluq Khote Sikkoun Se Tha. Aaj Unki Haram Naslein Raj Kar Rahi Hain Jinhoun Ne Imandar, Ghareeb, Mazloon Aur Masoom Logoun Ki Zindagi Azaab Kar Rakhi Hai.
        Aaj Yehi Khotey Sikkoun Ke Pillay Kehtey Phir Rahay Hain Ki Liaquat Ali Khan Mulk Ke Budtareen Wazir-eAzam Thay.
        Mulk Ka Budtareen Wazir-e-Azam Tu Chor, Dakoo Aur Ghaddar Nawaz Sharif Nikla Jis Ne Dosrey Dakoo Asif Zardari Ke Saath Milkar Mulk Ke Khazaney Ko Khali Kar Diya.
        Aaj Ye Aur Iska Kamina Tola Kambhakt Khullam Khulla Fauj, Adlia Aur Sub Ko Bura Bhala Keh Rahay Hain. Magar Inke Khilaf Koi Action Nahi Leraha. Ye Achi Nora Kushti Horahi Hai Khotey Sikkoun Ki.
        Ab leejiye Gen (Retd) Musharraf Ko Jo Ki Muhajir Musalmaan Hai. Bilawaja Uski Jaan Ke Dushman Hogaye Hain. Kuch Nahi Karney Aur Kehney Par Itna Wawaila Macha Rakha Hai. Zabardasti Onkey Galey Mein Phanda Dalney Ki Koshish Kar Rahey Hain.
        Pehle He In Ghaddaroun Aur Kambakhtoun Ne Pakistan Army Ke Ek Bohot Bahadur Commando Brig Tariq Mahmood Ko Bedarhi Se Maardiya. Isi Tarha Aur Bhi Imandar Aur Bahadur Faujiyoun Ko Khatam Kar Diya
In Halaat Mein Ab Musharraf Ke Liye Pakistan Mein Koi Jaga Nahi Hai. Sindhi, Balochi Aur Pathan Sub Unke Khoon Ke Piyasay Ahain.
Haan Agar Marney Ka Inke Hatoun Aur  Tukrey Honal Ka Itna He Shauq Hai Tu Zaroor Ayen. Samajh Lo Phir Ki Maut He Khench Kar Lai Gee. Lekin Bhai Musharraf Ko Koi Baat Samajh He Nahi Arahi. Shayad Pareshani Mein Aur Ghalat Saathiyoun Ki Wajha Se Dimagh Kaam Nahi Kar Raha.
Fikr Nahi Karain Commando Sahab Hum Sub Aap Ke Saath Hain Aur Hum Sub Milkar Khotey Sikkoun Ka Satya Naas Karain Ge. Bus Allah Pe Bharosa Rakhain. Waqt Aaney Par In Khotey Sikkoun Aur Inke Girayoun Ko Kuchal Dia Jaye Gaa Insha Allah.
 Janab-e-Aali Ab Ye Khotey Sikkoun Ka Pakistan Hai Jinnah Ka Nahi. Wo Khuwab Aur Vision Tu Jinnah Ke Saath He Khatam Hogaya.     In Kambhakt Khotey Sikkoun Ne Muhajir Musalmanoun Ki Naslain Barbad Kar Di Aur Kar Rahay Hain. Inko Apney Girain Nawaz Sharif Aur Dosrey Khatarnaak Chor, Dakoo, Ghaddar Aur Dehshatgar Nazar Nahi Aarahey.
        Ye Khotey Sikkay Qaum Ko Sabz Bagh Dikha Rahay Hain. Koi Naya Pakistan Ka Jhansa De Raha Hai Tu Koi Aur Chakkar De Raha. Ye Sub Ayyash, Badmah, Chor, Dakoo Aur Sahi Manoun Mein Dehshatgard Hain. Amriki Sadar Donald Trump Ne Sahi Kaha Ki Jo Arboun Dollar Diye Tha Wo Kahan Gaye. Arey Bhai Wo Tu Khotey Sikkay Sub Harap Kar Gaye Aur Dakar Bhi Nahi Lee.
        Inhoun Ne Puri Qaum Ko Bhikari Aur Ghulam Bana Dia Hai. Bheek Maang Maang Kar Apni Jebain Bhartey Hain Aur Qaum Ko Dete Hain Faaqa.
Hamara Pakistan Tu Ek Bohot Bari Nemat Hai. Allah Ne Is Mulk Ko Sub Kuch Diya Hai. Dunya Ke Khoobsurat Tareen Mulkoun Mein Iska Shumar Hota Hai.  Khotey Sikkoun Is Mulk Ki Hifazat Allah Karne Wala Hai. Abhi Tak Tum Aur Tumharey Girain Azab Dha Rahay Ho Magar Ab Jald Tumhari Bari Aanay Wali Hai. Allah Ki Laathi Bey Awaz Hai. Wahan Der Hai Andhair Nahi.Andhair Tu Tum Logoun Ne Machai Hoi Hai. Tumhara Dharam Tu Zulm, Sitam Aur Loot Mar Hai Aur Hamara Dharam Haq, Sabar, Insaf, Pyar Aur Muhabbat Hai.
Arey Pakistani Qaum Yaroun Kuch Tu Dum Pakro. Kub Tak Murdaroun Aur Beghairtoun Ki Tarha Geo Ge. Khotey Sikkay Tumhain Aur Tumhari Nasloun Ko Khatam Kar Rahay Hain Bedardi Ke Saath Aur Tum Charas Pee Kar So Rahay Ho. Hamain Jinnah Ke Khuwab Ko Pura Karna Hai Aur Ye Kaam Hum Sub Saath Milkar He Kar Saktey Hain.
Canada Waloun Hoshiar Hojao. Ye Khotey Sikkay Pakistan Ko Loot Kar Ab Canada Mein Gund Phaila Rahay Hain. Ye Chor, Dakoo Aur Naqabiley Etbar Loug Hain. Ye Sirf Apni Chor Biradari Ke Girain Hain. Pakistan Zindabad Aur Canada Zindabad.

JZ'S ARTICLE: TRIBUTE TO WAKIL: A ROLE MODEL FOR ALL


MARCH 3, 2018
TRIBUTE TO  WAKIL: A
ROLE MODEL FOR ALL
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER
TORONTO: Wakil, my brother-in-law, passed away on March 3, 2018, in Pakistan. His spouse, Meena, is my first cousin. They lived in Hyderabad, Sindh.
Belonging to a middle class family, I have seen Wakil and this great couple struggle so hard and with a purpose and target: To give the best to the family including education, to live happily and nicely and love all. The couple transferred the best quality of life to the children, mostly girls. Their struggle bore good fruit for now, except two unmarried, all the girls are highly educated, working on good positions and living a happy married with the best chosen partners chosen for them.
       Wakil, by your tremendous contributions, best grooming, teaching, preaching and training and through promotion of love, togetherness and in making your children very good human being you have made us all really proud. You really have proved yourself a role model for all: As an individual, as a loving and caring husband and father. He proved to the world that whether belonging to a poor or rich family girls are never a burden on the family and society. The most important thing is that how you bring them up, make them strong and brave to face the challenges of the cruel world and how to keep transferring the best qualities to the next generation.
       Wakil may Allah be very good with you and give you one of the best places in paradise. The body perishes but the soul remains forever. I am sure one day our souls will meet and greet each other.
Meena and the children: May Allah give you all the patience and strength to bear this tremendous loss.
Aye Dost Tum Tu Chaley Gaye Par Apni Khoobsurat Yadain Chor Gaye. Hum Sub Ko Ye Sabaq De Gaye Ho Ki Dunya Mein Kis Tarha Izzat, Mehnat, Kamyabi Aur Khushali Ke Saath Zindagi Guzari Jati Hai. Mein Tumhain Salute Karta Hoon Ki Tum Ek Misali Shaksh Ho. Ghuda Tumhain Jannat Mein Aala Maqam De. Ameen.

COUNTRY NEEDS TRUE LEADERS,            SEARCH AND VOTE FOR THEM
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER
TORONTO: True leadership is only solution of the people and country’s problems. They work sincerely, honestly and full dedication to bring real success, peace, stability, happiness and prosperity. They don’t give lollypops and keep tricking, cheating and fooling the people. They are not and can never become hypocrites. In fact they are one of the best blessings of God and capable of facing toughest challenges and fighting and defeating all mafia including the most dangerous corporate mafia and their touts and poodle political mafia and their policymakers, who for their vested interests can only hurt and harm the people and lead the country and people towards instability, poverty and destruction.  
In the present system of democracy, whether presidential or any other, both the ruling and opposition parties keep playing cunningly with the people. Their members and leaders are elected by the people but after victory they become   slaves of the parties and the invisible powers behind them, who are enemies of humanity and causing terrible death and destruction in the world. They have are responsible for deaths of millions and destroyed the lives of millions more millions  Even the workers and members too act the same way to propagate, promote and protect the vested interested of the parties and their godfather---The corporate mafia, which has the powerful media and cunning, cruel and anti-people policymakers under its control. 
I do not belong to any party but I am a Liberal party supporter and voter. That does not mean that I will give vote to any XYZ hypocrite leader of the party who gives lollypops to the people.
         Election campaigns are in full swing in Ontario. The Liberal candidate for Don Valley East in Toronto has the following message for supporters and voters of his constituency. The message is:
        Balanced budget. My question is what was your party and leaders doing since beginning of its tenure to work for and give a balanced budget. If you have the courage then go to those people whose budgets have been terribly upset. The rapid increase in price including the groceries crushed them and made their lives miserable. Many       Food items are getting out of the reach. In the name of Halal, the Muslim stores are mercilessly cutting the throats of their community members. The mosques are becoming political centres. They are cashing the votes for their vested interests.
The big increase in rents and parking plus extra money for hydro have resulted in sleepless nights for people living in apartments in Thorncliffe Park area in Don Valley West and similarly other localities. The rising cost of living is making them crazy due to mental torture. The people keep asking me as to where should they go now and what should they do? They cannot to move anywhere. The result will be in increase in crimes and corruption and the government, whether federal or provincial. will be fully responsible for it. To meet their both ends they will be compelled to anything. Instead of false promises and lollypops, the government must take serious notice of all such happenings.
The other messages are: Growing the economy and  building fairer Ontario.
The government must first help people controlling and lowering the rising cost of living. The increase in wages only leads to increase in prices of all. Increase the wages but at the same time lower and control the prices. The present policies are harm for the people. It must give relief to the people. Look at the empty stomach fist and feed and fill properly so that people can think and work properly and live peacefully.
        Let’s choose and vote for good and true leaders instead of wasting the precious votes on the enemy of the country, democracy, system, society and the people. Because of one mistake the whole country suffers. Make sure we don’t repeat the mistakes. We need real democracy and real leaders to serve the country, people and humanity in reality. This must always remain our vision and cause. Don’t let the wrong policymakers make the country’s Charter of Rights a tissue paper. My duty and responsibility is to create awareness and understanding and to serve my cause: Serve Humanity In Reality(SHIR---which is my motto.Long live Canada.

TORONTO, DECEMBER 25, 2017.
CELEBRATION OF CHRISTMAS BRINGS 
CHRISTIANS & MUSLIMS TOGETHER
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER
        TORONTO: Merry Christmas to all Christians world over and Happy New Year to all my fans, friends, near and dear ones and members of all communities.
        The Christian community members in most parts of North America including Toronto are very lucky to have a white Christmas. It is indeed a good omen and doubles the joy of celebration.
        For Muslim community too  Jesus (PBUH),son of Mary (PBUH), is a highly respected prophet. Those who think otherwise cannot remain a Muslim. Quran has special mention for Jesus (PBUH).He is the one who will come descend to the earth to save the world from the cruelties and cunningness of the extremely powerful Anti-Christ (Dajjal) and his evil army including distortionists, confusion and hatred creators. Instead of hatred against each other, we must understand the realities and facts. We must get united and prepared to face and fight the common enemies of God, good and mankind. If we don’t then get prepared worst destruction. So we must avoid playing in the hands of enemies. Every human being needs protection and it is our duty and responsibility to help and protect the good, innocent and helpless people.
        I have some very good Christian friends including Michael Morris and his wife Janet, Dominic Jacob and Samson Javed. They are also friends of my friends Shahid Hashmi, Syed Muhammad Iqbal and Tariq Rehman.
        Mike Morris invited us twice at his residence for a nice party. Once Samson Javed cooked extremely delicious lamb item (Lamb Karahi). The next was a turkey party. The extremely delicious turkey was prepared by Janet. Michael and Janet are amazing couple. They lived in Sindh, Pakistan, for over 22 years, they and their children speak fluent Sindhi and some Urdu as well.
        When we meet, we discuss little bit of religion as general information but avoid arguments and unnecessary discussions. This is how we respect each other. As a show of love, Samson Javed presented me a bag full of several items.
Shahid Hashmi too presented gifts to Michael Morris and Samson Javed. This is how our friendship flourishes.
        Living abroad, if one has good company and family friends then life and stay becomes very beautiful.
        December 25 is also a special occasion for Pakistanis. They celebrate the birth anniversary of Founder and Father of the Nation---Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
        Jinnah was a great visionary leader. Pakistan came into being on August 14, 1947, and unfortunately Jinnah passed away on September 11, 1948.
        This, the assassination of the first prime minister of Pakistan, Liaquat Ali Khan in 1952, who was the right hand of Jinnah, and the mysterious death of Fatima Jinnah in 1965, who was the sister of Jinnah, were all great tragedies for Pakistan and Pakistanis. With their passing away, their dreams and visions to make Pakistan a welfare state for all to live happily and
peacefully too were badly shattered.  Under the military rule, Pakistan was torn into two pieces.
        Slowly and gradually the society, system, rulers, leaders and the people were all corrupted. Now you never know what you are eating---stray dogs, dead animals, pigs, cats, rats and all sorts extremely dangerous and unhygienic things. People are drinking sewage water which gets mixed with drinking water. The media people keep shouting and exposing them but no attention is paid and deaf ears are turned. It seems people are deliberately being killed in this manner.
        Pakistanis including me love Pakistan very much but the facts and realities are extremely disturbing. Now there every second person looks like a thief, robber and beast. They are like termites eating and destroying my beautiful motherland Pakistan. It is indeed one of the best countries in the world.
        I believe that God will soon send a strong to wipe out corruption and the beasts from the soil of Pakistan.
        So next time my Pakistani friends on December 25 let’s all  celebrate both Christmas and the birth of Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Both of them bring and give happiness. All Muslims must join in celebrating Christmas. Let’s commit to serve humanity in reality. SHIR (Serve Humanity In Reality) is my motto, vision and cause. Join me in helping, serving, supporting and protecting humanity.

JZ'S ARTICLE: RESPECT & RECOGNIZE THOSE MAKING CANADA PROUD AND WORLD LEADER

RESPECT & RECOGNIZE THOSE MAKING
CANADA PROUD AND WORLD LEADER
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER
        TORONTO: Time has come for Canada to change its old, bad and wrong policies in the larger and best interest of the country and the people.
        World renowned, respected and recognized professionals and personalities with extremely valuable and rich experience have made Canada their homeland and the world leader in their respective fields.
        They are doing this in their own capacities, limitation and freedom Canada gives to all Canadians.
        They can do far much better if the Canadian government, policy makers and leaders realize and recognize their importance and the essential need for Canada and make changes accordingly in the policies to allow them best space, funds, positions and boost.
        Presently, they are ignored and degraded to the level of odd jobs and labour force. For survival they do everything like security jobs, driving cabs and labour jobs in the factories and shops.
        The dignity of labour gives respect to all but this does not suit these best professionals and gems of their professions and Canada. It is an insult of both Canada and the people.
Some of the present policies for them are reflection of the Colonial rule and must immediately be rejected and replaced by the good Canadian policies, policymakers and leaders like Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. This is the moral duty and responsibility of the Canadian rulers, good leaders and policymakers. 
Because of the wrong policies and differences as a result some important leaders have resigned and quit politics. This is a tremendous loss for Canada but those making such policies remain adamant and stick to what they are doing which is extremely harmful for Canada.
        In the parliament, we need good leaders loyal to Canada and the people and not poodles and puppets loyal to powers playing with Canada.  The Conservative Party under the leadership of Stephen Harper caused more damage than good to Canada. This is why people rejected both the party and the leaders because they now know their reality.
        WORLD LITERARY CENTRE: Like I said before those coming to Canada, particularly genius and gems, have through their hard work, struggle and contributions have made Canada, people and their community proud.
They rightly and proudly consider and call themselves Canadians because they are Canadians but discrimination because of the wrong policies and bad policymakers is hurting them badly and making them feel like second and third class citizens and Canadians. This is putting a bad patch on the beauty of Canada and sending a wrong message to the world.
        The intellectuals coming to and settling in Canada are playing an important role. Through their tremendous contributions and their growing numbers and strength have made Toronto and Canada the world literary centre. The number from Pakistan is great followed by India and others.
SENIORS CLUB: The Thorncliffe Seniors Club in Toronto keeps inviting, introducing and promoting such important personalities.  
        Distinguished personalities and community members attend in large numbers and make the events successful.  Ahmed Hussein, Executive Director of the Thorncliffe Neighbourhood Office (TNO) keeps supporting the club to serve the seniors of the locality and those coming from other and far off places. The TSC team including Syed Shakeel Ahmed, President, Naseem Ahmed, Vice President, Azhar Bokhari, General Secretary, Afzal Khan Nayyar, Abdul Razzak Chishti, Joint Secretary, Coordinator, Javed Zaheer, Founder and Honorary Secretary, keep working hard to promote the club and the cause: Serve seniors in reality. So far it is performing successfully and attracting leading and distinguished personalities of all fields including literature, music, poetry, etc. The purpose is not only to introduce and promote the personalities but their important messages as well.     
        On November 5, 2017, the TSC invited as chief guest Mirza Yasin Baig, journalist, writer and author. The event was held at 1 Leaside Park Drive,Toronto.
        Mirza Yasin Baig a renowned and distinguished personality, as chief guest, chaired the second session of the program. He thanked the TSC organizers for inviting him and to speak about his two books in Urdu language: “Desi Life In Canada” and “Parchay”.
        Mirza Yasin Baig spoke about the books and read many humorous items. The fully enjoyed his presentation. The books were sold ($15) like hot cakes. He signed all the books.
        Both books are based on class humour. Desi Life In Canada (300) pages/96 chapters). Parchay (230 pages/85 chapters). The content and quality could be judged when the books were sold like hot cakes.
        I knew Mirza Yasin Baig since 1999 but met him first in this event. His columns are quite popular. In this world full of stress, such good humour acts good for the mind and soul.
        Another distinguished personality Shahid Hashmi, Chairman, Canpak Chamber of Commerce, chaired the first session of the program.
        In his message, Shahid Hashmi congratulated the organizers for organizing a successful event. He was happy and impressed that TSC was doing a great work and attracting distinguished and leading personalities and community members. 
        He said that young members must also be included in the TSC team and given chance to promote the TSC and serve seniors and the community.
        Shahid Hashmi said that we must promote literature in reality and properly and promote and not sell Urdu,
        He assured the TSC members of his full support in promoting the TSC and serving seniors in reality.
        Shahid Hashmi and his spouse Seema Hashmi impressed the TSC members and the audience and won their hearts when they not only stayed till the last moment but both helped the organizers in picking up the chairs and tables and cleaning the hall. The couple and the family is best known for their hospitality,  generosity and goodness. Shahid said people must not feel ashamed in helping the organizers when help is needed. He said that the VIP culture must end because it is harming the community. This is Canada and all are equal. We must learn to live and work together.
    The TSC team including Shakeel Ahmed, Azhar Bokhari, Naseem Ahmed and Javed Zaheer thanked the two important distinguished guests and the audience which included Ayesha Arshad, Founder of Ummid International, and Ayesha Alam and Mahboob Alam of 50 Plus Club and other clubs for attending and making the event successful.
        Syed Muhammad Iqbal, President of Pak Seniors Club, in his message, congratulated the TSC team for the successful program. He hoped that the TSC would keep performing in much better ways.  
MY COMMENT: Read and enjoy the humour and also judge the quality of the books, content and the author. For every book we need a competent critic, who put a seal of quality on the books. There are so many writers and authors but competent critics are rare. Let’s find and promote the critics as well.

JZ'S ARTICLE: BECOME CONSCIENCE TO REMIND ALL TO BE BETTER & DO BETTER

BECOME CONSCIENCE TO REMIND ALL  
        TO BE BETTER & DO BETTER
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER
TORONTO: How important it is to become strong voice of the people can be judged from the remarks made by Liberal MP Rob Oliphant about Javed Zaheer, journalist and human rights activist.
 While recognizing and presenting him the citizenship award and medal, Rob Oliphant, MP, said:  “Javed is a freedom fighter and my conscience and keeps reminding me to be better and do better.”                                                               Javed Zaheer first thanked God (Allah) for the blessing and then Rob Oliphant for the recognition and respect, which has made Canadians of Pakistani origin proud.
        In his message to the community embers, leaders, media and journalists, he said that those choosing Canada to settle they all call themselves Canadians and all, particularly community media, must take full advantage of the freedom to become powerful voice of the people and a strong platform. They must respect and fully enjoy the freedom. The freedom helps connect leaders with the people and keep guiding both of them.
        While talking with friends and colleagues on the occasion, Javed said: “Forming team and circle of like-minded people and family friends always helps a lot to learn and work in a better way. It brings happiness in lives of all.
        He gave example of Shahid Hashmi, Chairman, Canpak Chamber of Commerce, and his family, he said that since 2000 he proved to be very good and trusted family friends.  I cherish his friendship, goodness and hospitality. Another good friend is Syed Muhammad Iqbal, President of PSF, who is one of my important source of news and knowledge.  So this is how we live and work together successfully.
Javed said: “I have found Rob Oliphant as a true leader and a friend of the people. He listens and tries his best to help the people of his constituency. His young and competent assistant Shifa Tauqir seriously respects, hears and helps all. This is my personal experience.”
