History witnesses, that there have been leaders who fulfilled the dream of Pakistan and provided the Muslims of the subcontinent with a free land—a place where they could live their lives by Islam and enjoy the fundamental liberties that every human being deserves but these things seemed impossible under both British and Hindutva rule. under those circumstances,

Muslim leaders embarked on a struggle against the All Indian National Congress, which represented Hindus and the British colonial power. These leaders faced opposition from Hindus, the British, and even some Muslims. While opposition from Hindus and the British was expected, it raised the question of why Muslims stood against their leaders.

Muslims perceived their leaders as conspirators who were responsible for dividing people who had coexisted for centuries. This perception led to a lack of support from the mainstream Muslim community until 1940, despite the Muslim leaders’ progressiveness, many Muslim critics of that time went to the extent that they wrote essays to clean Hindustan from the leaders.

They considered them the root cause of rifts between Hindu and Muslim unity. However, time has proven those leaders to be far-sighted and truthful in their claims. By the grace of Allah Almighty and through the struggles of the Muslim leaders, who were once labeled as kafirs (infidel), Pakistan came into existence.

After the sudden death of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Pakistan faced a leadership vacuum. In these circumstances, leaders from different backgrounds, cultures, and languages, who were unified by their faith in Islam, began to divide amongst themselves, giving rise to numerous factions within their political parties. As time passed, Pakistan experienced many ups and downs, losing significant territory, and influential leaders, and enduring the dictatorships of an illicit military bureaucracy. Today, the country finds itself at a critical juncture, plagued not only by political and economic crises but also by threats to its sovereignty.

At this critical moment, though, the number of leaders in Pakistan has multiplied. However, most of them appear to be artificial and lack substance. Therefore, it is fitting to write the essay “Clean Pakistan from its leaders” which was written at that time when leaders were far better than the leaders of today, the leaders who are engaged in incessant shouting matches, crying out for salvation from one thing or another are themselves subject to expulsion. In reality, Pakistan should be saved from these very people who generate such noise (Save Pakistan from this and that).

They are experts at creating a commotion, but their hearts lack sincerity. They are devoid of vision and merely carry the burdens of religion and so-called ethics on their shoulders, resorting to repetitive rhetoric. While they claim that religion is in danger, it is their existence as leaders that is truly at stake. They exploit religion as a means of self-preservation.

Pakistan must be saved from these leaders who sow chaos in its politics, leaving the people ignorant and easy to manipulate. The people take these leaders seriously, as they strive to gain power and subsequently exploit the nation’s wealth. This seems to be their sole manifesto, their unanimous agenda.
Pakistan does not need an abundance of leaders; it needs a single leader with the stature of Quaid-e-Azam and the sincerity of Hazrat Umar(R.A). Only such a leader can rescue the country from its multifaceted challenges.

Until such an individual emerges, the country will continue to endure the hollow verbosity and soaring promises made by these leaders at public gatherings. Those with full stomachs cannot comprehend the struggles of the hungry. Therefore, it is imperative that these so-called leaders, who seek to grasp the reins of power, be expelled from the political arena, allowing Pakistan to rid itself of its influence.
