23rd March and Pakistan: How Pakistan’s founding fathers destroyed the future of sub-continent

Rawal TV in Canada has been hosting discussions – primarily – by Pakistanis, on topics which are important to the Pakistanis.  These discussions are substantive and informative.  The most important part of these discussions is that the people called have done remarkable amount of thinking and reading on these subjects and have a “point of view”.  And, this point of view is not the run of the mill view that mostly emanates from Pakistan and elsewhere.

This is a discussion on an important day for sub-continent.  23rd March.  Three most important Freedom Fighters – Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru – were hanged on 23rd March in the Lahore Jail.  That unleashed a new wave of youth-powered freedom movement.  This trio fired the imagination in a big way.

Also, 9 years later, a Lahore Resolution was passed due to which, this day came to be known as “Pakistan Resolution Day“.  The guest here Dr. Tahir Qazi argues that calling it a Pakistan Resolution is a mistake as neither Pakistan, nor partition was ever mentioned in the resolution.  However, this resolution and the subsequent activities of Muslim League unleashed another wave on the sub-continent.  Of violence, intolerance and bloodshed.  More importantly, of an enduring poverty.

Listen to this very engaging discussion.
