www.javedzaheernews.blogspot.ca for my exclusive articles
          TORONTO: First of all Eid Mubarak to all my near & dear ones, friends and fans on the occasion of Eidul Azha 2016. One of the four most important pillars of Islam i.e. Haj is performed by millions of Muslims from all over the world.
          Also, millions of animals including camel, cow, goat, sheep and yak are sacrificed according to affordability as there are conditions, rules, principles, duties and responsibilities but absolutely no compulsion in Islam. The duties and responsibilities could best be described in short as follows: Worship God and serve humanity in reality.
          The same applies for Christianity and Judaism as well. It is a matter of understanding only which has been cunningly messed by distortion, confusion and misunderstanding.
        WISE & VICE PEOPLE: In order to become wise and nice, read the books with open eyes and proper understanding so that all including self, family, relatives, friends, community, society, system, country and humanity could benefit by the knowledge, skills  and experiences gained and overall contribution made.
          It is the good, positive and constructive contribution which matter the most otherwise anyone can obtain degree, diploma and certificate to become and be called educated.
          Like my loving, caring, sensible and responsible mother having good nature and character and millions of other such people and parents who despite being less educated or uneducated did or do their best through proper understanding, sensibility, responsibility, sleepless nights and great efforts and hardships to make us highly educated, responsible and a good human being. This is one of the best contributions they made or make along with worship of God. They deserve to be recognized, respected and saluted. They are the best ideals.
Those considering them illiterates and keep insulting them are the most unfortunate ones and worst creatures on earth.  I have seen at various places many parents and seniors crying and complaining. They were humiliated, insulted and thrown out or treated as servants. Their woeful tales can cause heart attacks.        
          In order to become vice just don’t remain nice and become friend of the devil and follow him i.e. become committed enemy of the mankind, keep people away from good and God and hurt, harm and kill them.
        GOOD COMPANY: When I say that I don’t deserve to be called a Muslim, lover, follower and believer of God the basis is: During 24 hours of each day, do I really worship God and serve humanity in reality? It is a very simple self-accountability and analysis to judge your character, words, deeds, actions and contributions.
          This mirror of conscience is always with us to show us our true face. The reality is that we deliberately avoid the mirror of truth and as a result are trapped by the whispers of the devil and cunningness of his followers and friends.
          This is why it is said that a person is known and judged by the company he keeps. This is why it is extremely important to have a good company and friends.
          Since childhood, I saw the good company and friends of my father. They were few but very close and family friends. The families of each other used to meet and greet each other almost every week in the shape of get together, lunch, dinner, picnic and party at home and at various tourist spots.
          Such company and friends protected us from isolation, depression and frustration. We all lived and met like one family. Even today the children and grandchildren of his friends are our friends. This is the beauty of such relationship and company.
           FOOTSTEPS: Following the footsteps of my parents, I too emphasize on having good company and family friends, particularly when living abroad. Why good company and family friends when living abroad are very important? I will tell you my own experiences.
          After the 1965 Indo-Pak war when diplomatic relations broke with Malaysia, my father went to Singapore and served in the Pakistan Trade Commission there.
          My mother could not adjust herself there and started missing her parents and siblings very much. She suffered from homesickness and became hysterical and critically ill. She could not even recognize us and was bed-ridden. We were all very much disturbed and extremely worried.
          Except us, there was none to understand, help and support her in reality as a friend or family member. As her condition worsened, the doctors advised us to send her back to Pakistan.
          She was sent back to Pakistan and within six months there she fully recovered and became normal and healthy. This shows how much important are family, company and friends and how much they matter. Now she is over 85 years but very much active, healthy and happily living in Chicago, US. All the family members, particularly my eldest brother, take great care of her.
          I can never forget that bad experience and the hard time faced. For over nearly two years, I lived in Singapore with my eldest brother and father. There we learnt a lot including how to take care of ourselves alone, cook food and take care of the house and study. This was a good experience for us. I got first position there.
          This lesson helped me greatly when my father passed away in 1973. I suddenly became very strong and immediately took charge of the house, mother and siblings and assured them that together we can manage things and face the challenges.
          Also, I can never forget that crucial moment, the painful testing time and the way my mother looked at me and asked the difficult questioned: “Son, what will happen now and how will we face the crisis and challenges?”  The tragedy shook her badly and stunned her. With tears rolling from her red eyes, she kept weeping silently. Every drop of tear had a message and enough to tear the hearts.
          Realizing the situation and condition, I hugged her tightly and said: “Look at
me, I assure you everything will be fine. God is and good people are with us. Exactly this is what happened. God and good friends helped and supported us to become what we are today. God’s blessings and the moral support and good company were a great source of strength, encouragement and happiness for us.
          Like all others, we too faced problems but never faced depression or disappointment. We depended on God, always remained thankful to Him and lived and progressed happily. Even today we follow the same way---Love, help and support each other and all others, which gives us great happiness and satisfaction and which we consider as one of the greatest blessings of God.
          Canada and people strongly believe in family reunion. In order to make Canada and families better and stronger, Canada must consider this factor seriously to allow sponsorship of siblings. It will help greatly towards progress and prosperity of Canada and communities. This is a food for thought for the rulers, leaders, policymakers and all people.
          This will be in the best interest of Canada and people of all communities. This is why it is important for all of us to join heads and hands and unite on a common platform to live & work together for stronger family reunion and stronger Canada and all Canadians. Positive thinking and practical approach is needed to help, support and serve all people and families to adjust properly and become strong in reality.
          I migrated to Canada in 1999 and fortunately since then greatly enjoying the company of good Canadians and community people and the best facilities, benefits and opportunities provided by Canada. I said fortunately because there are many people who unfortunately various problems and hardships including most importantly family reunion absence of sponsorship of siblings. This sponsorship would greatly help keep families united, strong and happy. Their contribution will help in the progress and prosperity of Canada.
          I visited along with my family and friends many beautiful touristic places in Canada including Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, British Columbia and Alberta provinces.
          Shahid Hashmi of Canpak Chamber of Commerce, his spouse Seema Hashmi & family played an important role in visiting many places in US & Canada and introducing good friends. They deserve credit for promoting good relationship and building bridges.  
          Apart from their other interests, they get satisfaction in doing this---serving the community by united all people, communities and families. Although I disapprove and strongly disagree with him on certain issues and his views but still I cherish the good relationship.
          As founder of SHIR Inter Network, my mission & vision is to Serve Humanity In Reality (SHIR), it is also my job to protect all people, particularly the innocent and helpless ones, from clutches and cunningness of the mafia and the committed enemies of mankind. Whether I succeed or not, it is my duty and responsibility and I will keep doing it. God is always there to support me and my mission.
          My job is also to protect the Muslim community from the nefarious designs of the dangerous lobby operating in two forms Pro-Mullah and Anti-Mullah. The objective of both is the same---Misguide the people by creating confusion, division, distraction and ultimately causing maximum damage and destruction.  People take me wrong that I am against overall Mullahs. I like and respect the good Mullahs. They are an important part of the family and society and my SHIR mission and vision. My war is against the Cut-Mullahs, corrupts and crooks.
        EID SACRIFICE: For the first since 1999, I along with my friends and their families went outside Toronto for sacrificing animals. The company group leader was again Shahid Hashmi and Seema Hashmi.
          Others included Syed Muhammad Iqbal, President of Pak Seniors Forum, Hameeduddin, Muhammad Arshad of ARCO Computers and his wife Rubina Arshad, Tariq Durrani and his wife Huma Tariq, Sarosh Riaz, her daughter Farzeen and her husband Faraz Islam.
          We went in two cars to Dumbriar Farm, located at RR#2 Conn, Ontario, N0G 1N0, almost three-hour drive from Toronto. It was an enjoyable drive with Hameeduddin beautiful narration in pure Hyderabadi style about his experiences of living and driving challenges in Saudi Arabia and visit of his uncle from Karachi, Pakistan, to Hyderabad Deccan, India.
          The story of Mamu Bhanja (Uncle & nephew) was very interesting and worth listening and non-stop laughing. Tariq Durrani sang in his beautiful voice old Hindi hits. Seema Hashmi’s Kabab rolls and tea provided great taste and relief.
           At the Dumbriar Farm, Mr Clair, the owner, who is a close friend of Shahid Hashmi, was waiting anxiously for us as we reached late. He welcomed us all warmly, showed us the lambs, discussed the deal and details and then took us to the Holstock slaughter, about forty-minute drive from his farm.
          At Holstock, since we were late the person who was supposed to slaughter left after his time was up. Luckily, Tariq Durrani stepped forward and agreed to do the job. Within fifteen minutes, he slaughtered by hand in Halal way all twelve lambs. So sophisticated and quick was the process. Out of the twelve lams, eight belong to Hameeduddin and his two sisters. The rest others included Tariq Durrani and Muhammad Arshad.
          PICNIC: It was a very good picnic & sacrifice experience there. On the way back home, we stopped at Angels Diner, family restaurant, located 33 Broadway Avenue in Orangeville, Ontario. There we enjoyed very delicious fish & chips, tea, coffee, ice cream, apple pie and cake.
          The trip and adventure from morning till midnight was wonderful, exciting and memorable. The credit goes to Shahid Hashmi, who jokingly says that he is not interested in credit but cash.
          Although I was sick and in great pain that day but the good trip, company and friends made me feel fully well and healthy. This is the magic and outcome of good relationship and togetherness. Let’s respect, like and love each other and live and work together.
          The Canadian rulers, policymakers and all leaders must realize the importance and think seriously in the best interest of all families, communities, people and Canada. Policy changes could be and should be made according to the needs of the time. Failure to understand would only harm Canada and Canadians.

www.javedzaheernews.blogspot.ca for my exclusive articles
TORONTO: My dear respected Muslim, Christian and Jew friends and fans, you must have read hundreds of books written by great writers and genius people. Now I invite you to read a masterpiece book with a totally different perception.
I keep reading and trying to understand and benefit from it and I am sure that all those who read and understand it sensibly would benefit tremendously.  They will witness great changes in their lives---love and respect for all with the spirit to practically help and support all during all times and particularly sadness and happiness. Only those who are benefitting could tell us about the extremely good taste they are enjoying.
They become angels on the earth. I am an ordinary person and only wish and dream to become like that and them. With the lifestyle that I have, I don’t deserve even to be called a Muslim as I am not properly obeying and worshipping God. From dawn to dusk, I fail to meet His expectations. It will be His greatness if He forgives me otherwise I don’t deserve. My conscience keeps making me realize this and I keep trying to reform myself.
While most of us are mentally sick (Commonly schizophrenic) and extremely emotional and unable to listen, bear and tolerate each other and consider themselves as the best and right, this masterpiece book with words of gems helps us become a normal human being with two essential and magical qualities: To remain on the right and straight path and to demonstrate great patience and tolerance at all times. The holy month of Ramazan provides us the best opportunity to learn, know, understand, adopt and practice these qualities. This is why fasting has been made compulsory. It has tremendous benefits. It acts as a reminder that we have to live like this in order to make the world really safe, wonderful and heaven.
With these two great qualities an ordinary human being becomes powerful enough to truly help, support and lead himself, his family, all people, communities and the world. Right from Prophet Adam to Prophets Muhammad, Jesus, Moses, David, Noah and thousands of others have proved this.
This is why we must know and learn from their lives, teachings and contributions. They are best examples for us and that is why Quran has mentioned about them, their people, their times and the outcome in the shape of blessings and wrath. Those who challenged God and harmed people faced the wrath and perished and those who enjoyed the blessings are growing and prospering.
Those who are conspiring and compelling others to change their religion are displeasing God because there is no compulsion in Islam and I dare say in Christianity or Judaism as well. Those who are doing this are on the wrong path. They are exploiting the people and which all the good religions, teachings, leaders and people condemn and reject outright.  
Through this marvelous masterpiece book the ordinary and even illiterate person learns to kill his ego and all whims because of which people were being insulted, humiliated, hurt and harmed. Not the illiterates but mostly the literate illiterates cause the most harm and prove the most dangerous. The power, wealth and status make them crazy, cunning, crook, corrupt and cruel. They start posing as god to take charge of lives of others, particularly the innocent and helpless ones. This is why God orders us to help and protect them. This is our most important duty and responsibility.
That marvelous masterpiece book is the latest, undistorted and final version of all holy books and divine messages including Bible, Torah and Scrolls of God to know and understand the reality of true worship and humanity service and as to who is really confused and misguided: God or people?
The most important message and knowledge I got from the book is that the worship of God (Allah) has only two forms: truly accept and obey God and serve humanity in reality. Without this one cannot become a good human being and a true believer. Being Christian, Muslim and Jew are only identities. The true identity is to become a good human being, which helps you to become a true believer, lover and friend of God.
This marvelous latest version of all holy books and divine messages has been named Quran not by any human being or other beings but by God Himself. In short it is a road map to God and good. Not only God has named this book as Quran but has openly challenged all to prepare and present, if they can, even a surah or a verse.
Till to-date many had attempted but none succeeded. Even all distortion attempts miserably failed. This alone proves the invincibility and authority of God and that God is the only author and protector of this book. This only is enough to prove that not God but over ninety percent of the people are badly confused, misguided, on the wrong path, knocking the wrong doors and following the cunning, corrupt and fake religious leaders and people disguised as Mullahs, Muftis, Christian priests, Rabbis, monks, Hindu Sadhus, scholars and leaders.       They are all crooks and corrupt people and not good religious leaders or people. In reality they are human beasts and the committed enemies of mankind. Their only aim and objective is to keep confusing, misguiding and harming people by all means. Since they misguide, exploit, cheat, hurt, harm and kill people, they must be not only exposed but punished.
We have to understand the real difference between the good human beings and the crooked, cunning and cruel human beasts. Only then we can recognize them and save ourselves.
In order to help, support, promote, protect and unite the people, I have been struggling since the last over 55 (fifty five) years to serve humanity in reality. When the time came to give it a proper good name, I got spiritual guidance from God and founded SHIR International Network (SHIRIN). This is the divine message of God, all holy books and religions and our duty and responsibility. I thank God for the guidance, support and this great blessing.   
Through my pen power, I keep trying my best possible to remain voice and strength of the people and serve humanity in reality which is my cause, mission and vision. SHIRIN is a powerful and effective platform for the people. Like I said above, the aims and objectives of SHIRIN is to Serve Humanity In Reality (SHIR). The aims and objectives could only be achieved if we remain united, normal, sensible, practical, committed and determined. All the team members must respect each other and on the same page for the common cause.
Only one can become a really good human being and true believer and worshipper of God by reading and understanding Quran with an open mind and full attention and honesty.   
This latest and final version of all books and scrolls---Quran---is full of wisdom and guidance and shows us the right and straight path and tells us as to how to remain firm and steadfast on this path to success and salvation, which definitely is not easy at all but extremely difficult and full of toughest challenges and dangers.
At the same time, God tells us in this final version our duties and responsibilities.
In order to achieve the aims and objectives of SHIRIN, I have started contacting leaders and people of all communities, parties and groups because without likeminded supporters, sponsors, donors and helping hands it will be very difficult to achieve the goals of my mission and vision. Funds from supporters, donors and sponsors would help implement the ideas, plans and strategies and attract and invite helping hands and unite them and all people, particularly the deserving, helpless and innocent ones to live and work together and serve humanity in reality without any fear. This is a completely humanitarian cause, mission and vision.
I fully understand that it is an extremely difficult task with tough challenges but I have accepted the challenge with the firm belief that God support is always with me. I was never alone and I will never be alone till my last breath.
God does punish me when I falter and do wrong but never ditches and leaves me alone. Depression, disappointment and frustration are all part of the struggle and a test.
I also understand that people might come to help me as friends and supporters but in reality they will emerge as hidden enemies to create confusion, division and disappointment to sabotage my mission. Such people as friends are very dangerous. This is why it is essential to have proper monitoring and managements and sincere friends and supporters as guards.     As a part of my humanity service campaign, I met my good Christian friend Mike Morris, a senior missionary, and his wife. The couple and their children lived in Sindh, Pakistan, for eighteen years. They invited me to lunch and to meet their missionary friend Samson Javed.  They cooked halal food for me including delicious kababs, chicken and a vegetable dish.
After three hours long but very interesting, meaningful and fruitful discussion about religions, God, Bible, Quran and other holy books, I put this important question before Mike Morris and his wife. Their answer was that God is holy and is definitely not confused but we surely are.
I then told them that if we are confused and misguided then why don’t we first remove the CONFUSION and hatred cunningly created against each other and in order to better understand, respect and follow the same God, His divine messages and commands and the path and ways mentioned in the holy books to serve humanity in reality.
When all three of us accepted the reality then I as founder of SHIR International Network invited them to join hands to practically think and work together for the common cause which is my mission and vision: Serve Humanity In Reality (SHIR).
Samson Javed, a Canadian of Pakistani origin, too was very nice and we became friends. He too was part of the discussion and agreed with my views and explanations. He left fifteen minutes earlier but assured me of his support.
Samson Javed said that Christians are suffering and being discriminated and mercilessly killed in Pakistan. He cited many cases of massive corruption and injustices.
I listened patiently and replied: “All people spreading hatred and indulging in violence for their vested interests whether they are Muslims or of any religion and community are actually human beasts and using the identity of Muslim and Islam as shields. All arsonists and killers are cunning, crooks, criminals and terrorists and have nothing to do with humanity and any religion. Law and courts are there to decide fate of the people being accused of any crime. The unfortunate ones in thousands become the victim of corruption in the justice system and are found rotting in jails for up to 40 or years or more. They are unable to pay the Diyat or required amount or get support to get freedom from jails. They need and must be helped to get freedom. Islam ensures equality and justice to all.   
“Also, all the discriminatory laws that are giving the lunatics, fanatics, extremists, terrorists and corrupt people the opportunity to abuse, harm and kill innocent people must be reviewed, revoked and replaced with good and proper laws which ensure the safety and protection of all.
This is because Islam is deadly against hate, discrimination, exploitation, cruelty, corruption, violence and terrorism. Islam stands for love, respect, equality, justice, peace and humanity service in reality. Through conspiracy and confusion people are being misguided that it promotes violence, hate, discrimination and terrorism.
Don’t forget that it was Islam which helped the US and Allies win the war and occupation of Afghanistan. Instead of remaining thankful to Islam and Muslims for helping the world, they became human beasts and started defaming Islam and killing and crushing Muslims. In the name of Taliban they created terrorists and then let them loose on the world after their mission was accomplished.   
During the discussion with Mike Morris and others, I quoted the following relevant Surahs (chapters) to make my points clear and explanations logical, meaningful: Surah Al-Fatiha (Chapter # 1), Surah Al-Ikhlas (Chapter # 112), Surah Al-Asr (Chapter # 103), Surah An-Nasr (Chapter # 110) and Surah Al-Kafiroon (Chapter # 109).
          These Surah (Chapters) are all deeply connected and defines and explains about worship and service to humanity in reality. The message, particularly in Surah Al-Asr is very clear i.e. remain on the right and straight path and demonstrate patience and tolerance. What else one needs to know about worshippers, believers and humanity principles.
 Instead of debating, arguing and fighting with me, they listened to me with full attention, great patience and understa0nding. They agreed with and accepted most of my views. I really enjoyed very much the discussion and benefited greatly and which resulted in preparation of this article. I can never forget the hospitality of the wonderful couple.
CAPO: At a meeting held recently by Canadians of Pakistani Origin (CAPO), Rob Oliphant, MP, asked CAPO to do more to really help, support and serve the people of the locality.
I praised Rob Oliphant for the pricking remarks and informed him that I have been constantly writing and pointing strongly about CAPO that it is not serving the community properly and only few families are being promoted and others ignored. TNO sponsors must know that the funds meant for the people are going into the drain. Deserving people are angry, disturbed and now complaining and questioning about use and misuse of the funds meant for the people.
Both the MP Rob Oliphant and Ahmed Hussein, Executive Director of Thorncliffe Neighbourhood Office (TNO), must take a serious note of this. Canada has a good system and nobody should be allowed to corrupt it. Those doing so must be exposed and punished.
The policymakers must make sure that all those involved in corruption, cheating or fraud of any kind whether prime minister, MPs or community leader must not only be exposed but punished. Presently people were cheated, the culprits were exposed, had to resign but were not punished. Who is going to help the people get their money back?
 My job is to just brining the issues and problems and it is the job of the authorities concerned to take up this issue and take action accordingly.
When the Canadian media takes up such issues or any issue then it must ensure that the culprits are not only exposed but punished as well and that people should get justice and their money back. If they can’t then they should quit the job and go home because they don’t deserve this challenging and sacred job.
As Founder of SHIR International Network it is my duty and responsibility to keep serving the people by all means and by becoming their voice and strength. My aim, objective, cause, mission and vision will always remain the same: Serve Humanity In Reality. Either people it and get united or keep facing my pricks, stings and music.
