Human beings, irrespective of their colors, creeds and nationalities and religions, need to be reminded that they are the sons and daughters of Adam and the Eve. The “Flood of Noah” had dispersed and relocated them in different geo-environmental zones which influenced their appearances, their languages, their life styles and ultimately their beliefs and their faiths too. I do not find myself prepared for a minute to believe that the Muslims, the Jews, the Christians, the Hindus and the Buddhists are justified in behaving like enemies of each other only because they practice different religions. Religions are nothing but different sets of Divine Manuals regarding an individual’s “conduct of day-to-day business of life” influencing every aspect of human behavior in this world. Does the God, who has created this universe and whatever is in it, depend on His own creation to impose His will in the name of religion on mankind, by force? He has all the power in the universe to do that Himself. But He did not opt for that. His last message Quran, through his last messenger Muhammad (PBUH) categorically and strictly prohibits that. Islam is a religion that truly and literally means PEACE. Muslims are allowed to go to war with a set of exemplary precautionary instructions only when war is extremely necessary and unavoidable to maintain and create a genuine environment of peace. If this is true and it is true then why are the Muslims treated like enemies of the non-Muslims and the Muslims treat the non-Muslims as their enemies? Why they are suspicious of the intentions of each other? It is ironic that a “Cruel Inhuman System of Exploitation” has been imposed on the people of the Muslim countries internally by a “Group of Exploiters” in the name of secularism, moderation, toleration and “Unregulated Free Economy” with the blessings of their “External Supporters” who are obviously justified in doing so in the strategic interest of their respective countries. Majority of the people in the Muslim countries are helpless and the only weapon available to them is frustration visibly dominated by hatred for their rulers, politicians, bureaucrats, businessmen, army generals and the foreign heads of states and the governments who support them. The most genuine embarrassing question, therefore, is how to put an end to this exploitation and consequently the frustration and hatred which is an obvious outcome of the realities on ground?

    • ZHK2004 The Missing Link The Loss of Universal Identity of Mankind Human beings, irrespective of their colors, creeds and nationalities and religions, need to be reminded that they are the sons and daughters of Adam and the Eve. The “Flood of Noah” had dispersed and relocated them in different geo-environmental zones which influenced their appearances, their languages, their life styles and ultimately their beliefs and their faiths too. I do not find myself prepared for a minute to believe that the Muslims, the Jews, the Christians, the Hindus and the Buddhists are justified in behaving like enemies of each other only because they practice different religions. Religions are nothing but different sets of Divine Manuals regarding an individual’s “conduct of day-to-day business of life” influencing every aspect of human behavior in this world. Does the God, who has created this universe and whatever is in it, depend on His ow n creation to impose His will in the name of religion on mankind, by force? He has all the power in the universe to do that Himself. But He did not opt for that. His last message Quran, through his last messenger Muhammad (PBUH) categorically and strictly prohibits that. Islam is a religion that truly and literally means PEACE. Muslims are allowed to go to war with a set of exemplary precautionary instructions only when war is extremely necessary and unavoidable to maintain and create a genuine environment of peace. If this is true and it is true then why are the Muslims treated like enemies of the non-Muslims and the Muslims treat the non- Muslims as their enemies? Why they are suspicious of the intentions of each other? It is ironic that a “Cruel Inhuman System of Exploitation” has been imposed on the people of the Muslim countries internally by a “Group of Exploiters” in the name of secularism, moderation, toleration and “Unregulated Free Economy” with the blessings of their “External Supporters” who are obviously justified in doing so in the strategic interest of their respective countries. Majority of the people in the Muslim countries are helpless and the only weapon available to them is frustration visibly dominated by hatred for their rulers, politicians, bureaucrats, businessmen, army generals and the foreign heads of states and the governments who support them. The most genuine embarrassing question, therefore, is how to put an end to this exploitation and consequently the frustration and hatred w hich is an obvious outcome of the realities on ground?

    • THE MISSING LINK “THE LOSS OF UNIVERSAL IDENTITY OF MANKIND” By: Zahid Hussain KhalidThe information highway has turned the global village into an enlightened informed village.Now, the information travels faster than the light. It takes just split of a second tocommunicate with hundreds of millions of people through regional and global satellitechannels and internet. News and email alerts from different channels and platforms providenews updates and expert views and analyses on the subjects of an individual’s choice not inminutes but in seconds. So, in a world that is so well connected and well-informed whatdoes one need is ONLY “Caution in Communication Approach.”Human beings, irrespective of their c olors, creeds and nationalities, need to be remindedthat they are the sons and daughters of Adam and the Eve. The “Flood of Noah” haddispersed and relocated them in different geo-environmental zones which inf luenced theirappearances, their languages, their life styles and ultimately their beliefs and their faithstoo.Let me explain this through an example: A couple had five sons and daughters. The foursons and daughters left the parents and relocated to new unknown continents. They, intheir struggle for survival, did not find any time or the necessary means to get in touch withtheir parents and each other. They got married and raised families without looking back andthinking about their roots. Their children had no idea from w here their parents had come.And this is how they lost their “Genuinely Origina l Ide ntity as Members of a SingleFamily” which was expected to remind them of Adam and Eve, their Great -Great-GreatGrand Father and Mother binding them together as brothers and sisters.The mankind has no sense of this loss!!!Forget about that loss. Ironically, majority of the people in the world do not know thenames of their great and great-great grand parents!!! The people, living in differentcountries and in different parts of the world have t heir respective “national and historicallyyet-to-be documented and authenticated cross-ethnic identities.” Unfortunately, the mostimportant identity that they are oblivious of is their “Divine Universal Identity” as “Membersof a Single Family.”Once, we prepare ourselves to admit that we are “Members of a Single Family” created bythe Only Creator through Adam and Eve, no matter where on earth we live, no matter whatis the color of our skin, no matter which language we speak, no matter which religious faith
    • or the ideology we follow, only then we will realize how difficult it is to hate or hurt amember of our own family.Having said that, I do not find myself prepared for a minute to believe that the Muslims, theJews, the Christians, the Hindus and t he Buddhists are justified in behaving like enemies ofeach other only because they practice different religions. Religions are nothing but differentsets of Divine Manuals regarding an individual’s “conduct of day-to-day business of life”influencing every aspect of human behavior in this world. Does the God, who has createdthis universe and w hatever is in it, depend on His own creation to impose His will in thename of religion on mankind, by force? He has all the power in the universe to do thatHimself. But He did not opt for that. His last message Quran, through his last messengerMuhammed (PBUH) categorically and strictly prohibits that. Islam is a religion that truly andliterally means PEACE. Muslims are allowed to go to war with a set of exemplaryprecautionary instructions only when war is extremely necessary and unavoidable tomaintain and create a genuine environment of peace. If this is true and it is true then whyare the Muslims treated like enemies of the non-Muslims and the Muslims treat the non-Muslims as their enemies? Why they are suspicious of the intentions of each other? Whenwe look at different codes popularly known as “constitutions” for the conduct of “the day -to-day business of life” in different “religious zones” namely Muslim, Christian, Jew ish, Hinduand Buddhist, we find that the Islamic code of conduct, with certain religious, social andeconomic exceptions in personal and business relationships, is dominantly reflected in theChristian, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist religious zones through politically ratherconstitutionally administered social and economic policies and systems. The Muslim zonehas also created its own administrative political, social and economic manuals (readconstitutions) as their respective codes of conduct but only for the poor, weak andhelpless people either living below poverty line or engaged in a daily struggle to keep theirbody and soul together. Constitution is just a piece of paper for rulers in the Muslimcountries.Islam is unconsciously practiced in the non-Muslim zones as far as the rights andresponsibilities of an individual and a state are concerned. It does not exist and is not visiblein “day-to-day business of life” in the Muslim countries anymore. Islam is proudly ownedand practiced by the Muslims to the extent of following the known guidelines regarding anindividual’s appearance, prayers and Islamic rituals but in reality the real Muslims aresocially, politically and economically NO MORE visible anywhere!!!The non-Muslims do not believe in Islam but surprisingly and visibly they are far betterMuslims than the Muslims themselves!!! How?
    • The rulers in the non-Muslim religious zones are accountable to their laws and their courts. The Muslim rulers are not. Islam declares that rulers are not masters. They are servants of the ruled. How many Muslim rule rs believe and adhere to that? The bureaucrats of the non-Muslim countries are public servants and the bureaucrats in the Muslim countries have turned into Masters and are treated and hated like Monsters. They are inaccessible, irresponsive, irresponsible and unaccountable. Can a bureaucrat in a non-Muslim developed country behave like that? The laws in the non-Muslim countries are uniform both for the rulers and the ruled, affluent and the poor alike. But, in the Muslim countries laws are only for the helpless, weak and poor people. The rulers, the political leaders, the generals, the bureaucrats and the business tycoons defy laws and treat the courts with contempt. Islam and laws of civilized country treat the ruler and the ruled as equals. Are the rule rs and people treated a like in the Muslim countries? The non-Muslim countries have the genuine education policies, labour policies, health policies, defence policies, media policies, investment policies, trade policies, industrial policies and foreign policies with a clear understanding that voters will not vote for a person but the policies of the party to which that person belongs. A party or a person can fool the voters once but can not do it twice. In the Muslim countries the policies are made to fleece the people and plunder the resources of the country. Is it thinkable in a civilized non-Muslim country? In the non-Muslim countries the political, military, economic and diplomatic decisions are taken in the best national interest through consensus. In the Muslim countries, the monarchs and the dictators issue proclamations and ordinances either to please their “external patrons” or to perpetuate their rule and plunder the resources of their countries with “conditional external moral, political, diplomatic and economic support”. Is it even imaginable in a civilized developing or a developed non-Muslim country?In a scenario like this from where does the religious differences come in and what is thedemand of diplomatic sanity? It is ironic that a “Cruel Inhuma n System of Exploitation”has been imposed on the people of the Muslim countries internally by a “ Group ofExploiters” in the name of secularism, moderation, toleration and “Unregulate d FreeEconomy” with the blessings of their “External Supporters” w ho are obviously justifiedin doing so in the strategic interest of their respective countries. Majority of the people inthe Muslim countries are helpless and the only weapon available to them is frustrationvisibly dominated by hatred for their rulers, politicians, bureaucrats, businessmen, army
    • generals and the foreign heads of states and the governments who support them. The mostgenuine embarrassing question, therefore, is how to put an end to this exploitation andconsequently the frustration and hatred which is an obvious outcome of the realities onground?It is not that the sensible people an d heads of the states and governments of the developedand developing non-Muslim countries do not have this question in the back of their minds.As a matter of fact, President Bush himself had asked on several occasions, immediatelyafter 9/11, as to why do the Muslims hate the Americans. It is wrong to say that theMuslims hate the Americans. They do not hate the Americans. They hate the Americanpolicies which, according to their belief, have almost destroyed the very moral foundation ofthe social, econo mic, political and military institutions in almost all the Muslim countries. Aninaccessible, irresponsible, irresponsive, arrogant, inefficient, incompetent, corrupt, andunjust system of political, social, economic and corporate governance to the extent ofextreme cruelty has shattered the nerves and negatively influenced the patience of eventhose Muslims w ho are genuine moderates. The words moderation and toleration are nowconsidered and ridiculed as the most undesirable utterances of demagogues.Why is it so and what is the way out?To answer that, one has to look at the Tria ngle of Trust formed by affluent individuals andnations (Donors/Lende rs); poor, under-developed and under-privileged people andcountries (Rec ipie nts); and the organizations through which donors and lenders try theirvery best to help the recipients in whatever way they can (De livery Systems / Channelsor Inte rnational Humanitarian Organizations). This Triangle of Trust owes its formationto a desire for addressing the “genuine grievances and the crying social and economiciniquities” in the deprived, under-developed and under-privileged countries of the world.There are different perceptions regarding the three. It is generally believed that the donors and lenders provide the humanitarian social and economic assistance, aid and loans to only those countries and rulers who blindly support and follow their strategic policies without questioning the intentio ns of the donors and the lenders and analyzing the repercussions of the dictated policies. As such, in majority of the Muslim countries, the intentions of the donors and lenders are doubted by the recipients and the purpose of donations, aid and loans is, to some extent, considered to be partially served through an inv isible engineered element of reciprocity predominantly in the interest of the donors and against the interest of the recipients.
    • It is usually perceived that the donors and lenders have no idea about the genuine needs of the recipients as such, according to analysts, there is not even a single we ll focused human and natural resource potential and pe rforma nce based study identifying self-reliance programs with implementation timeline for the deprived and under-privileged people living below poverty line in different parts of the world. It is now almost an acknowledged reality that almost 80% of the funds available f or Social and Economic Development, Poverty Allev iation and United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals are evidently spent on politically motivated social and economic development projects; on disbursal adm inistration; on outdated, inconclusive and irrelevant research papers; on majority of experts who have no idea about the social and economic realities on ground in different parts of the world; and on professional credential presentation and exchange platforms like wor kshops, seminars and conferences which definitely provide glimpses of the theoretical wonders of the world instead of practical solutions w ith realistic implementation strategy and its requisite timeline. Most of the remaining 20% funds are allegedly embezzled and misappropr iated. Consequently, the Delivery Systems / Channels and International Humanitarian Organizations have lost their moral and ethical credibility.Now, the challenge confronting those who stand at the three corners of the Triangle of Trustis how to address the above perceptions for compassionate interaction founded on mutualtrust.A detailed analysis of pre and post 9/11 scenarios, presented to the President of Pakistan inJanuary 2002 after its approval by a team formed by the President Secretariat, identifiedthe follow ing areas of concern which are not confined only to Pakistan but are visible inalmost all Muslim countries: Lack of Strategic National Consensus – Political Front Activities of the Religious Lobbies – Diplomatic Front a nd Communication Deadlock – Media FrontThe cause and effect analysis clearly indicates that the Lack of Consensus o n internal f ronthas created a Communication Deadlock between governments and certain influentialsegments of masses and their self-proclaimed religious political leaders in the Muslimcountries which is clearly visible in regional and international media providing a position ofprivilege to confronting extremist and fanatic religious groups and lobbies both in theMuslim and the non-Muslim countries. These religious groups are taking full advantage ofthe social, economic and political frustration of the deprived and underprivileged people ofthe Muslim countries. The consensus, therefore, can only be arrived at by declaring an all
    • out war against the follow ing social and economic evils that have eroded the confidence ofthe people in the overall “State Management System” in almost all the Muslim countries byconverting the globally acknow ledged visible strengths of the elements of their nationalpower into psychologically irritating weaknesses. Illiteracy and Ignorance Unemployment Poverty Internal and e xternal reliance Diseases Corruption Injustice and violation of human rights Political, ethnic and religious prejudices and Sectarianism and Te rrorismThe above social and economic evils are partially identif ied by the UN MillenniumDevelopment Goals. Billions of dollars are being spent annually but the situation is day byday deteriorating to an alarming extent.How to convert this environment of confrontation into a movement for understanding andcooperation? The world leaders have a responsibility to declare a genuine war against theidentif ied social and economic evils. This war will automatically put an end to sectarianism,fanaticism and terrorism. The proposed Agenda of the war against social and economic evilswill consist of the following five steps: A proper evaluation of the natural and human resource potential of the least developed countries in general and the Muslim countries in particular A real and im partial evaluation of the social and economic indicators to determine the prec ise extent of their self-reliance and reliance on others. The declaration of a Strategic Plan consisting of workable options for bilateral, regional and global cooperation to fill and / or narrow the artificial br idgeable gap between natural and human resource potential and social and economic performance. The creation of unhindered channels for the flow of human and natural resources from human and natural resource rich countries to natural and human resource poor countries. The authorization of International Court of Justice to try the rulers, politicians, bureaucrats, army generals and business tycoons who are responsible for the creation
    • and perpetuation of the “Systems of Inhuman Exploitation” in the under -developed and developing countries.It is the responsibility of the world leaders to take immediate steps in this direction becausethe delay in the declaration of war against social and economic evils will make the world anincreasingly unpleasant and alarmingly unsafe place to live.BASIC INFORMATION A BOUT ZAHID HUSSAIN KHALIDAn exciting biographic journey from childhood to school to university to Russian classes to job in Saudi Arabia toemployment in Jang Group to adventurous years in Pakistan Television Corporation to memorable time spent withJang Groups Mir family as an employee and relocation to Hong Kong for the refining of professional skills, back toJang Group and the launching of International Media Sales with authorization to market Forbes, EuromoneyMagazine, Petroleum Economist and Asiamoney magazines in Pakistan, beginning of the most satisfying creativeperiod by authoring two winning technical and financial proposals for 9th SAF GAMES fundraising campaign andPresident of Pakistans post 9/11 strategic media plan.A FEW MILEST ONES:Global Vision 2000: A conceptual framework to make the world an enjoyable place to liveLaunching of the pre-test edition of State Management Review - Countrys first magazine on Good GovernanceIdentification of a Cycle of Nine Social and Economic Evils and preparation of a global, regional and Pakistan specific pla n toconfront and eliminate the evilsPreparation of a Model for a unique Media City-cum-Theme Park in PakistanPROJ ECTS IN PIPELINE:A book on Future of Emerging Markets and Global EconomyLaunch of an e-Initiative against Global Social and Economic EvilsCreation of a unique Entrepreneurial Platform of Global Corporate Angels for the Monitoring of social, economic, political, diplomaticand military governancePreparation for the launch of a Global Movement for ban on sponsorship of political, social, religious and business news anddiscussion programs for teaching the mainstream media owners the real meaning of “Conflict of Interest.”
