PROTEST AGAINST TORONTO STAR FOR
DISCRIMINATION AGAINST PAKISTANIS

EXPLANATION & APLOGY DEMANDED FROM TORONTO STAR FOR DISCRIMATION, HURTING & INSULTING  
                        PAKISTANI COMMUNITY
          IMPORTANT NOTE TO THE WEBMASTER:
KINDLY DIS TRIBUTE MY STRONG PROTEST TO THE FOLLOWING MENTIONED BELOW. I WANT THEM TO READ, RESPOND AND TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION AGAINST THE PERSONS RESPONSIBLE FOR WRITING, EDITING AND PERMITTING THE USE OF THE  DISCRIMINATORY ARTICLE. AN EXPLANATION & APOLOGY IS DUE FROM THE TORONTO STAR---THANKS---JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER JOURNALIST:
          PLEASE PRESENT IT TO:
1)David Holland, Acting Publisher
 2) Managing Editor: Irene Gentle
3)Editor: Michael Cooke
4) Public Editor
5) AURIE MONSEBRAATEN, Social justice reporter
6) Richard Lautens
      RESPECTED Publisher &Editors,
          Being a senior journalist with over 40 years professional experience including 13 years as Senior Sub-Editor in Daily DAWN, Karachi, Pakistan, and 17 years of writing experience in Canada, I had great respect and regard for you all. Unfortunately, some racists, excited, inexperienced and non-professional desk editor/reporters of the Toronto Star keep writing sensational and discriminatory stories. It clearly shows that they are indulging in angling and deliberately targeting the Muslim and Pakistanis with sinister motive to tarnish the image of the community and portray Pakistanis as terrorists, thieves, robbers, poor and beggar.
     The story written by your Social Reporter, Laurie Monsebraaten,  titled “Kids suffer most as Toronto clings to title of child poverty capital”, chose Salma Jabeen, a Pakistani, and her daughter, Zara, living in Thorncliffe Park Drive and portrayed as very poor and could not afford luxuries like gymnastic, taekwondo and swimming. After reading the story it clearly looked that Pakistanis belong to the very poor class and and are not capable of contributing tremendously. After seeing the picture of Salma Jabeen and her daughter the Canadians will start considering the Pakistani community members as beggars and violent people.
          I strongly protest against such negative portrayal of the community and demand unconditional public apology from all concerned. I hold the editor and publisher responsible for this because without their approval this story could not have published. 
          The Pakistani community comprises highly educated, professional, skilled and technical people belong to good families and having very good and rich background. No poor person could migrate to Canada. They can only dream but cannot afford or qualify. This is the fact and true picture and not what your justice reporter portrayed.
          Even the taxi drivers and labours in the factories are highly educated and had served on senior positions in Pakistan. Most of them are permanent resident and citizens and never indulge in any criminal or stupid activities. They focus on earning and taking care of their families in a very respectable manner.
          Go to Downton and see the beggars asking for money. Find one Pakistani and present it to me. Even find one in Thorncliffe. In my seventeen years stay in Thorncliffe I have never seen any Pakistani begging for food or money.
          Now I am compelled to ask as to how much money was spent to write this story full of fabricated lies. The innocent Pakistani women must have been tricked. Had she known the motive she would have become a part of such hate story.
          Before trying to portray Pakistanis as bad and criminals again the reporter must visit Toronto’s Downtown to see women on the streets selling their bodies and the gays in action or the nude dancers exhibiting every part of their bodies. I have nothing against them nor what they are doing. I dare challenge the Toronto Star to find one single Pakistani at all these places.
          It is a fact that whosoever comes to Canada faces tough challenges and most of the people come mentally prepared. We remain in the system and follow the system. Over 95 percent Pakistanis are respectable and responsible citizen and immigrants. They are contributing tremendously. Ask Salma Zahid, MP, and Iqra Khalid, MP, and the Pakistani who is holding very high position in judiciary in Ontario.
          Please, Please, Please. Stop such nonsense, which is badly damaging the credibility and image of Toronto Star amd Canadian mainstream media. If you people are doing such things deliberately I am prepared to defend and protect the Muslim and Pakistani community at every step. You will find me a hard nut to crack.

JZ'S ARTICLE: TRIBUTE PAID TO PAKISTANI MUSIC LEGENDS

JAVED ZAHEER: FOUNDER OF SHIR INTERNATIONAL NETWORK:
A MISSION WITH A VISION TO SERVE HUMANITY IN REALITY
TRIBUTE PAID TO PAKISTANI
            MUSIC LEGENDS
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER
        TORONTO: Pakistanis wherever they are keep showing their deep love in all ways for their motherland and community. Since they believe in socializing and mingling with others proudly with their own rich cultural, religious and traditional values, they are joined by friends and supporters from other communities, particularly Indians, Bangladeshis, Afghans, Iranians and people of all colours and religions. With such love and spirit, the great success of any event is guaranteed.
          GOOD CONCEPT: Best Entertainment (Sohail Ahmed Siddiqui)  & NJ Marketing (Najma Malik) came up with a good concept of paying tributes to Pakistani legends. I met Sohail Ahmed Siddiqui of Best Entertainment and his team members, who are all well-educated and well-settled people belonging to good families. In short, their background and contributions are both very impressive.
          Muhammad Salahuddin, popularly known as Mehdi Salahuddin in the music world, who is also the lead singer of the Best Entertainment team, introduced me and Syed Muhammad Iqbal, President of Pak Seniors Forum (PSF), to Sohail Ahmed Siddiqui, a well-known, popular and distinguished figure of the community, Jibran Hashmi (Singer/Engineer), Ruhi Samina (Singer/author), Saleha Azam (Singer) and Seema Naqvi (Poet & author). We all liked the wonderful idea and concept to pay tribute to the legends. The spirit was worth seeing.
          Finally, after careful planning, the musical event: “Tribute To Pakistani Legend 2016” with grand dinner was organized on Friday, November 25, 2016, at the Milan Banquet & Convention Center in Mississauga. People came pouring in to attend the event, which as a result was delayed by an hour. The hall became full by 8:30 P.m. The gentry was of high class comprising distinguished personalities and prominent figures of many communities.
          SOHAIL RANA: Sohail Rana, the world renowned and recognized music director and music maestro of Pakistan, who is a living legend of the music world, was the chief guest. Sohail Rana’s great remarkable achievement and contribution includes presenting the Canadian national anthem in Urdu language. It was not an easy task and only person of Sohail Rana’s calibre could do it.
          ASHFAQ HUSSAIN: Also present on the occasion was Ashfaq Hussain, a distinguished literary figure and poet, who has been recognized and presented achievement awards for his tremendous contributions both by the Canadian and Pakistan governments.
          The program began after 8:30 P.M.. Since the actual host, Najma Malik, had to go to Pakistan, therefore Seema Naqvi acted as the host. Jibran Hashmi, who played the anchor role in organizing the event and is the right hand of Sohail Ahmed Siddiqui, acted as both co-host and singer.
          LEGENDS: Tribute was paid to legends including Madam Noor Jahan, Queen of Melody (Malka-e-Tarannum), Mehdi Hassan, King of Ghazal (Shahanshah-e-Ghazal), Nasim Begum, Ahmed Rushdi,  Mujib Alam, Irene Parveen, Nayyara Noor, Feroza Begum, Shahnaz Begum,Alamger, Runa Laila, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and many others.       
           DIFFERENCE: Unlike the junkie singers (Popularly known as Bhands in South Asian community), who keep performing in the manner and ways of monkeys shouting and jumping on the trees in the jungles and zoos, Mehdi Salahuddin and Ruhi Samina proved their excellent singing class and won the hearts and praise of the audience with their beautiful, sweet and soul-touching voices. Their every song compelled people to  responding with claps and Wah Wah (Words of praise). They also sang duets and entertained the music and Pakistan lovers.
          TRIBUTE TO MEHDI: I was sitting near Sohail Rana when Mehdi Salahddin came to meet him and seek his permission for the golden hits the legend  composed. Sohail Rana not only greeted him warmly and respectfully but greatly praised him and said: “You are really a very good singer and I am interested, out of the lots, in hearing you. I get fed up with junkies and leave when they keep torturing the people.” This was a great compliment and encouragement for Salahuddin, who sings songs/geet and ghazals of all legend singers including Muhammad Rafi, Mukesh, Kishore Kumar, Talat Mehmood Jagjeet Singhbut but whose ideal is late Mehdi Hassan.
          Even Mehdi Hassan listened to him perssoally and praised his good quality voice and permitted him to sing his Ghazals & Geets.
          Like Sohail Rana, Ashfaq Hussain is also a great fan of Mehdi Salahuddin. He liked him so much that he himself interviewed him for ATN television.
          Not only Salahuddin is a very good singer but a soft-spoken and thorough gentleman as well. He was a senior officer in PIA, the national airline of Pakistan. He belongs to a good family with no connection whatsoever with any Gharanas. He likes singing before a serious audience, only who understand his class of performance. Such audience is hard to find but these days.
          In the musical events mostly the junkies dominate the stage. They are the ones responsible for causing maximum harm to music and promoting bad taste music. Cheap music and bad taste of the Red Light Area class---full of filth and vulgarity. A gift of Bollywood, which believes in making money by all means. Bollywood has caused tremendous damage to India’s extremely wonderful and rich music contributions.
    Muhammad or Mehdi Salahuddin sang four songs/Ghazals in the presence of Sohail Rana and five songs/Ghazals in the presence of Ashfaq Hussain.
          Jibran Hashmi, the nasal singer, and Saleha Azam too performed and entertain the audience. While Jibran is well-known and popular in the community and actively takes part and is invited in community events, Saleha Azam is a newcomer but with a bright future as a singer because of her very good voice.
           The program continued from 8:30 P.M. till almost 1:30 A.M. The music lovers remained glued to their seats. The songs took them back to the time and memory lane of the past. Only those with good taste of music could understand the charm. It was not an event for the monkey and junkie music taste people. The good gentry and audience proved this. Sohail Ahmed Siddiqui, Mehdi Salahuddin, Jibran Hashmi, Seema Naqvi and Ruhi Samina are all from the heart of Pakistan---Karachi but like and love with all good people of all communities.  
          EXPLOITERS: Commercial events are organized mostly with main focus on making money only. There the exploitation of the people is seen and felt and the true colours, cheap mentality and shady characters of the commercial organizers and most artists, posing as experienced, professionals, highly educated, well dressed and very hospitable with smile on their cunning faces, are exposed.
          They not only exploit the people but use and abuse the artists as well. People must boycott programs of all such characterless creeps. It is our duty and responsibility to not only expose them in order to protect the people but to encourage, support and promote the good people to really entertain, educate and awaken the people with concepts to keep them closer and together with liking, love and respect for each other. It is damn easy to become pimps, touts and rotten eggs but hard to become and remain good member of the society and community. Good people know the worth of vales, respect and credibility. They cannot afford to comprise and stoop low.
          Canada and the people welcome and encourage all communities to promote themselves in the best possible ways. The events and activities are all part of the freedom given and enjoyed. We must respectfully and responsibly avail all the facilities and opportunities and make Canada, people and all communities proud. This is why we need to remain alert against exploiters who are tarnishing the image and damaging the reputation of their communities. For them importance of values is meaningless.

JZ'S ARTICLE: HIT HARD WHERE IT HURTS THE MIOST: :ECONOMY

JAVED ZAHEER: FOUNDER OF SHIR INTERNATIONAL NETWORK:
A MISSION WITH A VISION TO SERVE HUMANITY IN REALITY
     HIT HARD WHERE IT HURTS                     THE MIOST: ECONOMY 
 BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER
        TORONTO: All those fearing the craziness and wrath of US President-Elect, Donald Trump, his mindset team and policymakers because of the fire and venom he spitted, the hatred he created and promoted and dirtiest discrimination he showed need not fear him, his madness and craziness.
          Yes, there is no need to fear and be scared because there is 1a definite solution for every problem whether big or small. The American people are no doubt one of the best, loving, caring, peaceful, respectable and responsible people in the world.  
          ROTTEN EGGS: Because of some rotten eggs---Donald Trump, his team and supporters---all others should never be considered rotten and stinky. They are all respectful and should always be respected.
This is what Christianity, Judaism, Islam and all other good religions and their true followers teach and preach. So, it is better to remain within the limit but with preparedness for protection. There is no point and sense in responding and acting in the same uncivilized and harmful manners.
          The good, civilized and sensible Americans have showed great anger and have come out on the streets. Some of the protesters even became extremely violent and indulged in smashing and burning of whatever they got hold of.  This happened in several states and cities of America. So Americans themselves were the first to react angrily and violently. This is not a good sign for America and Americans. People are sensing the great danger and harm to the people and country. They have come out in the best interests of the people and country. Even the least sensible and educated person and also most illiterates in any part of the world could easily understand it. The good Americans and the others worldwide know very well that America needs a smart leader as a president instead of any DUMB who is used as a trump card by the cunning policymakers and the think tank controlling them to harm       
 mankind. Such policymakers and their think tank are in reality committed enemies of the mankind.
          HELP AMERICANS: We must step forward to help and support the good Americans to protect their country and people. This will be a great service to humanity in reality. Failure would result in mass death and destruction. The world has several times witnessed such happenings in the past.
          Donald Trump has pointedly targeted and threatened the Muslims. If, I would emphasize on big IF, Donald Trump turns his hate and anger against Muslims into reality then instead of being provoked and becoming violent the Muslims worldwide and the Muslim World must react peacefully and sensibly by boycotting all American products in any shape and form. This will hit where it hurts the most: Crippling of the US economy and Donald Trump would be directly responsible for such crippling. Can America and the Americans afford this? They must think seriously and stop Trump from indulging in any crazy adventures.
          PRAYERS: Instead of remaining in fear and passing sleepless, Muslims and other like-minded people must unite to face the tough challenges and dangers. Some people already consider Donald Trump as Dajjal (Anti-Christ) and beast (666). As a Muslim, I have faith in Allah (God) and prayer to Him to give Donald Trump the proper guidance so that not only America but the whole world benefits greatly through his tremendous positive and constructive contributions.
          There is a lot written and said about Donald Trump (https://www.google.ca/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=ClgxWIHBBKKC8QfFlZaIBg#q=donald+trump+and+muslims). However, if Trump proves very good and sensible, he could serve humanity in reality greatly by helping end poverty and removing illiteracy from most parts of the world.
          Poverty and illiteracy are undoubtedly the two most deadly weapons of the committed enemies of mankind and humanity. We must all unite to help end poverty and remove illiteracy from anywhere and everywhere. This can only be achieved through proper awareness, understanding and practical actions. This is how we can defeat the cunning & corrupt lobby and end corruption. We must prepare ourselves to face the tough challenges and dangers.

JZ'S ARTICLE: TRUE LEADERS ARE BEST HYPOCRITES ARE PEST

www.javedzaheernews.blogspot.ca for my exclusive articles
https://twitter.com/jazamedia
www.linkedin.com/in/javed-zaheer-b3406b69
JAVED ZAHEER: FOUNDER OF SHIR INTERNATIONAL NETWORK:
A MISSION WITH A VISION TO SERVE HUMANITY IN REALITY
       TRUE LEADERS ARE BEST,
       HYPOCRITES ARE PEST
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER
        TORONTO: True leaders are like gem are very rare whereas hypocrites like pests are everywhere. It is definitely not in the people and national interests to choose, vote, support, promote and follow hypocrites and any person, leader and party not loyal to the people.
          People of good character, conscience and credibility can sacrifice their lives and everything but will never compromise on the issue of loyalty with the people and country. They are patriots and not hypocrites.
          DIFFERENCE: There is a vast difference between hypocrisy and democracy. Mostly in the name of democracy hypocrisy is being promoted and practiced. The word democracy is used as a shield to hide hypocrisy and hypocrites. The world can never be a safe place with such hypocrisy democracy run by hypocrites.
They are responsible for the worst type of destruction, sufferings and poverty in the world and merciless and brutal killing of millions of helpless and innocent people in the name of peace and danger to national interests. All such cruel, gruesome and beastly acts are committed solely for their vested interests.
          Through proper awareness and understanding, people must be educated to recognize the hypocrites and their cunningness and warned not to commit the grave mistake of trusting the hypocrites and exploiters again and again and being easily trapped.
HIDE AND SEEK: After elections and being voted, the hypocrites and exploiters are hardly seen and hard to catch. For four years they live in their own world of fantasy and keep playing hide and seek with the na├»ve, innocent or helpless people.        
          Unfortunately, most of the leaders and parties worldwide are not loyal to the people and if they are not loyal to the people then understandably they are not loyal to the country as well.   
The importance of trust and confidence, commitment and promises are all meaningless for them and only tools to fool the people. With such character, attitude, approach and policies of leaders and parties, people can never become and remain happy. Only they will keep becoming poorer and their lives miserable.       The graphs and statistics of progress and prosperity are all  restricted to paper work. A fair survey will definitely reveal how painful the lives of most people are. Their miseries are increasing and multiplying rapidly resulting in increase of all sorts of crimes, serious illnesses and mental sickness of all types leading to even suicides.
          HARMFUL GIFTS: All these are harmful gifts of wrong policies, leaders and parties. We keep getting lollypops laced with sweet poison. There are many catches, which must be exposed and removed.
          Many basic facilities and necessities including grocery, housing and rents are becoming beyond their reach. Along with other issues, non-affordability of many things is an important issue. The fact is that issues continue to pile up and remain unattended. They can only be solved if the leaders and parties become loyal to the people and country. Unfortunately, this is not happening for long and resulting in suffering of people. The challenges are becoming tougher.    
          BAD PRACTICE: If we understand and stop the bad practice of voting for, supporting, protecting, promoting and following blindly the wrong people, leaders and parties and only go for the right ones then believe me there will be tremendous real changes.
          Both the people and country would benefit tremendously through stability, great progress and prosperity. This is an important reality and a great service to the people, country, community and humanity.
          Lollypops and lip service must always be rejected. This will not only put great pressure on the leaders and parties but put them on the right track and also compel them to act positively and practically serve the people and country.  
          The vote has tremendous power and is the foundation of success. Progress, prosperity and stability of the people and
country. The important thing is the right use of vote in order to make the parliament and institutions really strong and powerful with a team of good leaders, advisers and policymakers.
          The parties must give freedom to their leaders and team members instead of making them just robots, puppets and helpless. Those trying to become voice and strength of the people face punishment in many ways and fear losing nomination and support of the party in future. No good system can work properly and effectively in this way. This will always remain hypocrisy and can never be called real democracy.
          The parties badly treating and punishing good leaders and policymakers must face severe punishment and that is NO VOTE for them. It is important to make them realize that people and voters are not pests. They deserve full loyalty and respect.
          HUMAN TERMITES: Hypocrites are human termites and making the country hollow. They can only cause damage. For real democracy, we need good leaders and parties who are truly loyal to the people and the country. They do not fear the consequences and do not compromise even with their party and leaders.
          We need leaders who understand the people and respect them, their votes, issues, problems and needs. Who live, fight and die for the people and country. There are such leaders but we need to encourage, support and promote them.                 
          Yes, we need good people and leaders with a mindset to practically unite, through assurances, trust and confidence, people of different mindsets and priorities on a common platform and same page. Only they can do this.
          CONTRIBUTION: Active participation of the people is seen in social, cultural, religious and political activities and gatherings. This is good and healthy and should be encouraged in order to have good society.
          Along with active participation, the people must be educated and encouraged to focus on active contribution in order to build good families, communities, society and system, essentially needed to establish real democracy.
          One very successful person said: “My priorities are 1)My health 2)My family 3) My friends and employees and 4) Money. Greedy people start with money, end with money and end as losers. This is what they get. As losers, how can they help the people country and even their families?” Hypocrites too fall in the greedy group as they become richer and make people poorer.
          Critic role is very important in ensuring good policies for good working of parliament and leaders.  This way the system could be improved and strengthened.
          We must encourage the people and groups to become voice and strength of the people in order to fight hypocrites and exploiters and to meet expectations of the people. The mafia involved in hurting and harming the country, people, society and system must be exposed. Only by becoming powerful voice and strength of the people, we can help bring real change and real democracy.
          CORRUPTION: I keep meeting people of different mindsets, communities, countries and religions. We listen to each other and engage in very good discussions and dialogues in a very friendly manner. Most of them without any second thought say that corruption is the main cause of poverty and destruction of institutions in their respective countries.
          BENGALIS: My highly educated Bengali friend from Bangladesh, who is a Canadian citizen, says: “Brother, over ninety (90) per cent of Bangladeshis like and love Pakistan so much that they are prepared to fight and die for Pakistan if there is war between India and Pakistan.
          “Whatever happened in the past is history and now we are with Pakistan and Pakistanis. They are our Muslim brothers and we can never leave them alone. There is lot of protests going on in Bangladesh. People are being killed, arrested and tortured. Pakistanis and Muslims worldwide must know about it and speak out against the corrupt and cruel Bangladesh Government.”
          SIKHS: Similarly, most of the Sikhs in Canada are fed up with corruption and worst kind of discrimination in India. They say: “Corrupt politicians, leaders and rulers have made lives of non-Hindus and even low-caste Hindus miserable. They are so powerful that it is hard to get rid of them.
          “This is why we moved to Canada, one of the best places on earth. We have nothing against the Muslims. The Muslim saint Hazrat Mian Mir Sahab of Pakpattan, Pakistan, was invited by one of our Guru and laid the foundation stone of the Golden Temple.
          “When we go to Pakistan, we get very warm welcome, great respect and best hospitality. How can we then dislike and hate them. It is the corrupt politicians are rulers who divide and create hatred.”
          This is the tale of almost every person I meet in Canada from developing or poor country, particularly Africa and Asia. All say in one voice: “Corruption is destroying our people, society, system and country. In Canada we and our children are getting best facilities and opportunities.”
          CHOOSE OPTIONS: Without true leaders, good policies and practical action for implementation all efforts including for electoral reforms or changes of laws or the propagated real change would go waste. Parliaments and institutions without true leaders and good people would prove garbage bins full of dirt and pests.
          They are all sacred institutions but our votes for the wrong leaders and parties are turning them into garbage bins. We are directly responsible for such wrong and dirty practices by acting senselessly and irresponsibly. There is always option for us: VOTE OR NO VOTE.
          Before asking for and expecting real changes we must first change ourselves. True leaders never beg for votes. Instead people run after them and vote for them without asking. It is the people who become winners by electing true leaders.
          We can only win by helping, supporting and promoting each other with positive and constructive approach. Good people and great leaders show great patience and never try to exploit, cheat, harm and hurt anyone. This is the spiritual guidance given in the holy books including the Holy Quran.
          This is the real test for deserving paradise where one will find no vice. So rise and choose the right option: The right path as mentioned in the first chapter (Al-Fateha) of the holy Quran.
          REMINDER: Shahid Hashmi, Chairman, Canpak Chamber of Commerce, accountant and a distinguished community leader, keeps saying and reminding the Muslim community members: “Most Muslims don’t follow the religion in realty. They don’t act and implement what they say, teach and preach. This is why the community is suffering. We must learn to like, love and respect each other and live and work together.”
          As founder of SHIR International Network, this is what part of my message is. My mission and vision is Serve Humanity In Reality (SHIR). Most people keep asking me senselessly: “How do you serve or we can serve humanity in reality. We don’t understand your motto?” I can understand their taunts and sick mentality.
          This does not bother me but instead makes me stronger and more determined to meet the tough challenges. They act as a fuel for the fire burning in me and the desire to serve humanity.
