LIKE MALALA, FAHIMS PROMOTING
EDUCATION, HUMAN VALUES
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER
TORONTO: True leadership anywhere, everywhere and at any time is always confronted with serious challenges from those who are committed enemies of mankind. Yet such people are never deterred by any sinister conspiracies, cowardly attacks, threats, hurdles, obstacles and setbacks.
True leaders, no doubt, are great people. They boldly and bravely accept and face all challenges and remain prepared for worst-ever difficult times. In any case or situation or at any time or before anyone, they never let down their people and always try to fulfil all the promises, pledges and commitments they make. This is their quality, character and identity.
Malala Yousafzai, the 14-year-old brave daughter of Pakistan, who is campaigner for girls’ rights and education, is one such hero. She was shot in the head by those who are human beasts, criminals, crooks, cowards, corrupt, traitors and conspirators.
The Taliban group, which always promptly and without losing any time makes the claims and takes the responsibility, claimed the responsibility for this attack. It is being strongly condemned and severely criticized for this cowardly act by Pakistanis and the whole world.
REVIEW POLICIES: Some are suspecting foul play and holding the US and Allies responsible for this attack through their mysterious Taliban group so that they could gain sympathy of Pakistanis and the world, put pressure on Pakistan’s military, rulers and politicians to do more including major military operation and justify their operations and attacks including Drone attacks in which thousands of innocent people including women and children have been mostly mercilessly killed.
Interestingly, Pakistanis and most Muslims in the Muslim World really love, like and respect the country and the good, loving and caring people of US and Allies. This is why they all crazily want to go there by any means and at any cost.
But they don’t like and trust the policymakers, rulers and military of US and Allies and hold them responsible for the mass killings and destruction in order to achieve the vested interests. This is all mainly because of the infamous but notorious U-Turn Policies of the US. This is why US and Allies have lost trust, confidence and respect.
If they keep working with the crook, cruel and corrupt rulers, military generals, bureaucrats, leaders and people then they will always be disliked and hated and never trusted and respected. They will have to seriously review and sincerely make positive changes in the policies in order to gain the trust, confidence, love and respect of the people. They must deal with true leaders and good people to help them become rulers, policymakers and politicians.
CONSPIRACY PLAN: Malala Yousafzai gained prominence in 2009 by writing a diary (BBC Urdu video Schools Dismissed) about life under Taliban militants who had taken control of the valley. She earned the admiration of many across Pakistan for her courage. She was encouraged and supported by her father Ziauddin Yusufzai, mother and BBC Reporter Abdul Hayee Kakkar.
All the four are also being suspected by many of being very close to the US and Allies and working for their vested interests. The connection issue is becoming a hot issue. The media is splashing exclusive news with pictures about the connection issue. It is being termed as a well-planned drama of the conspiracy plan.
Courageous Malala Yousafzai was just 11 when she started her diary, two years after the Taliban took over the Swat Valley and ordered girls' schools to close. She wrote under the pen-name Gul Makai for BBC Urdu and exposed the sufferings. She won a national award for bravery and was nominated for an international children's peace award.
CLEAR MESSAGE: By her true leadership character, attitude, actions, deeds and tremendous positive contributions, Malala Yousafzai and many others like her, who are risking their lives and struggling, helping, supporting and serving the people with the spirit of service to humanity, are proving to the world that neither Pakistanis nor Muslims are terrorists. Instead they are victims of global terrorism and international conspiracies. This is a loud and clear message: Target the real terrorists instead of labelling the Muslims as terrorists.
The world leaders and people must come forward and practically act to help and support such courageous people. It is never too late. Ignorance or refusal would certainly lead to torturous punishment in the form of painful pricks by the conscience. They will always regret and can never sleep, live or die peacefully. This is for sure. It is the issue of mankind and humanity.
FAHIMS CONTRIBUTIONS: Recently a couple from Pakistan visited Toronto, Canada. They were introduced to me by Shahid Hashmi, a renowned and respected community leader and a distinguished personality, who is also their relative. The couple has dedicated their lives to promoting human values and committedly serving the people through education in order to ensure better future and quality of life for children, people and Pakistan.
As part of their important role of promoting human values, the couple, Syeda Fahim Iqbal Jaffrey and Muhammad Fahim Khan, adopt poor and deserving kids and children who are ignored by the parents. They help, support and groom them so that they become good, responsible and respectable member of the society and community and have a bright future. The focus is on their character, welfare and education. Also, they help in the release of innocent people who are in jails.
ADOPT A KID: The couple were guest of Shahid Hashmi and stayed with his family, famous for community services and hospitality, at his residence. Shahid Hashmi, greatly impressed by tremendous contributions and patriotic services of the couple for promotion of education and charity, has adopted one of the poor and deserving kids who cannot afford O & A Levels education.
Many Canadians and others, including distinguished personalities, very much impressed by the couple’s intentions, commitments, determination and contributions are showing keen interest in practically helping and supporting them in promotion of their education projects and adoption of deserving bright children for their education and future under supervision of The Fahims School System.
The couple assured them that their help and support would prove a great blessing and help for the deserving children and innocent persons and maintenance and expansion of the education and charity projects. They are expecting help and support from maximum number of people.
The couple said that the practical help and support would greatly help them to continue their mission of building the future of new generation through education. The objective is to make them very good human beings.

As the Liberal Critic for Multiculturalism, Jim Karygiannis is working with Canadians from all walks of life, who have come here from every corner of the world to be full partners in the decision-making of Canada – to be fully engaged in the Canadian experience. He says: “We are discussing issues of concern and interest; sharing cultural traditions; and, exchanging opinions on the challenges that face Canadians. We will continue to work together to build our nation; enhance our international reputation; and, work to build a stronger Canada”.
Jim says: “As Canadians, our cultural mosaic and our diversity are our greatest strengths. Canada is a proud multicultural nation that embraces a wide variety of cultures and heritages. Canadians of innumerable heritages help to foster this identity and strengthen the fabric of our society. Members of the many Diasporas in Canada have made, and continue to make, significant contributions in a number of areas including sports, business, the arts, medicine and public service.”
Karygiannis says” “We need to Respect our fellow Canadians as equals. We need to accept them as full participants in all aspects of Canadian life. We need to celebrate their full participation in our communities. We need to embrace where it will take us. We need to come together as Canadians and show the world that we are all part of the human RACE.”
Dr Taghi Abedi, a highly respected and internationally recognized researcher, scholar, intellectual and a medical doctor, presented the couple his book ``Faiz Fehmi’. This book is a result of tremendous research on Faiz Ahmed Faiz, a great poet of Pakistan.
