            TORONTO: The voice and power of the people is so strong that it can invite wrath of the God against those who consider themselves most powerful and invincible, dramatically change the course of history, fate of the people and destiny of nations. History and holy books are full of such examples. Only through the voice and power we can practically unite the people and help and support the innocent, helpless and deserving ones.
            The parliamentarians, leaders and policymakers must understand this power and listen and respect the voice of the people. Unfortunately, when they are in opposition they pose and act like prophets, saints and true leaders but once in power they become completely strangers
            Fortunately, Canada is one such nation where most of the people understand their might, know the right and their rights and how to struggle and fight for them. Why I used the word most is because there are many who damn care about right or wrong and keep voting, electing, promoting and supporting those who keep preying on people and playing with the lives, fate and future of the people and the country.    
            By bringing the big and badly needed change of government and continuing changes through repeal and replacement of bad and harmful policies with good ones and by making policies to ensure equality, justice, stability and progress of both the people and the country Canadians of all classes, communities, origins and religions are proving that they know the worth of lives, laws and values and the importance of respecting and protecting them.
            As founder of the SHIR International Network (based on the vision: Serve Humanity In Reality (SHIR), I thank and congratulate my team members and all those who are helping bring the positive changes including the government, leaders, bureaucrats, people and groups.
            SHIR International Network is and will remain strong voice and power of the people to practically help, support and promote them and the just causes. It’s a never-ending mission with a vision. It’s our religious, national and moral duty and responsibility.   
            I am fortunate to have honest, sincere, good, committed and active team leaders. They are all serving humanity in their own ways. One of the SHIR team leaders, Syed Muhammad Iqbal, who is President of Pak Seniors Forum (PSF), has a powerful message for trouble-makers, hypocrites and exploiters. He daringly says to them: “Looking for trouble then trouble is my business as I am a trouble-shooter.” He is honest, committed and very straight forward and a source of inspiration and role model for others.
            Similarly, Afzal Khan Nayyar, who is also a SHIR team leader, despite his very old age and chronic illness keeps trying to practically serve humanity by meeting, helping and supporting people and attending big and small events to remain in touch with people and issues and problems of the community. His dream and ambition is to do something great for all people.          
            Power has both negative and positive impact.  People with bad nature and intentions when they become powerful become extremely cunning and cruel. Their minds are controlled and corrupted by the devil which makes them cold-blooded human beast---The most dreaded creatures on earth. 
            When such people become leaders, lawmakers and policymakers and get the opportunity to lead the people and the country then they become blood thirsty and start showing their true colours and making the lives of all people miserable and turning the country into hell. For vested interests, they hurt, harm and kill at will millions of innocent and helpless people and cause massive destruction without any regret or remorse. Instead they enjoy every bit of their dirty game very much.
            This is why only people with good nature, intentions and character should and must be sought, chosen, supported and promoted to lead in every field of life as only they can daringly face all and even the toughest challenges and fight the most corrupt, cruel and cunning ones and their stooges like the hypocrites, opportunists and exploiters. Only they can ensure success and bring peace and happiness in the lives of people and steer the country towards real stability, progress and prosperity.
            Muslims and the Muslim World are in crises because of various factors. The solution is very simple and applicable. All the Muslim countries need to and must include Arabic in curriculum as a compulsory subject for Muslims right from the beginning till the highest level. This will help the Muslims understand the holy book Quran in the best manner.
            This way they will be saved from the fake and distorted messages and cunning and corrupt people. The proper understanding and awareness of the divine messages will help them in all fields of lives and in dealing with rest of the world. Unfortunately, the Muslim World is missing this essential need which can definitely help in building a good individual, family, community, society, system and country.
            Only the political slogan of Islamic system will not work. The governments lack the will to do so. Proper Islamic teaching and implementation are a must for making the people and the country Islamic. Just listening the Friday and other divine sermons and not understanding even a word throughout the whole life will not work at all. Instead they will always remain in grave crises.         The darkness and deafness will only turn into brightness and awareness if Quran enters into the life in reality. Then only humanity could be led and served in reality.
            Along with Arabic, they must also teach English and the mother language so that the combination could make them modern, religious and a very good human being.  Such is the importance of this combination.
        Canadian Muslims are extremely fortunate that Canada and the people allow them to freely practice their religion. The system, society and the government provides them the best opportunity and facilities to become a very good Muslim and human being. They must take full advantage of the generosity and goodness, which are indeed a great blessing of God.
            Stop worrying about the political gimmicks and tricks of Donald Trump in America or of others in other places in negative or insulting tone. Consider it as an agenda of the political parties he or they represent. They are spokesman of the parties and cannot speak without their permission. He or they are helping you to understand the plans, policies and intentions of the parties. If they are good follow and vote for them and if they are bad neglect and reject them.
            It’s so simple. Let them do what they are doing and let us do what we need to do. If we fail to understand and waste our precious time and energy on people like Trump and his likes then we will emerge and end up as losers. The American people are very nice and sensible. They know and will decide what to do.
            They know very well that the barking dogs seldom bite but the mad dogs attack and kill people. They know what to do with mad digs and elephants. They know the difference of good and bad. They also know very well that some bad leaders and wrong policies are greatly harming America in the name of vested interests and as a result millions are suffering and dying in the world.  A lot is being written about this. Read John Pilger’s article: Visit my blog also to read John Pilger’s articles.
            So let them live their lives and let us focus on our lives, issues and problems. Our time and energy are both very precious and Canada, people and the Muslim community need them very much. Because of the best opportunities and facilities, people are witnessing tremendous practical changes in the Muslim community.  Muslims are becoming more practical and sensibly and responsibly protecting themselves and respecting the Canadian system, society and all communities as well. The Canadian Muslims are teaching their kids to live and work together and love and respect all. This is the beauty of the wonderful country Canada.
            The Muslim kids who can’t read and understand the holy Quran in their mother language or Arabic are using the English translation. There is nothing wrong in doing so as far as understanding is concerned. They can read in Arabic and understand in whatever medium they find easy and comfortable. The purpose is to achieve the aim of knowing the divine messages.            JZ’S PROFILE:  Founder of SHIR International Network (Serve Humanity In Reality---SHIR), declared by Judges as one of 75 Finalist Best Canadian Immigrants, an Honour for the Pakistani Community.
