Throughout history there have been certain individuals who achieved recognition in certain areas. Shaikh Saadi said: “Honour is not earned, it is conferred by the One Who Confers.” According to this concept, if a great deed is accomplished by someone, he should regard it as a gift of God rather than “the muscles of his own arms.” It is a special favour from God that a particular individual is selected by providence and singled out for a specific task.

Sir Sayyed was given the honour to accomplish the educational uplift of the Muslims. He was neither a pious religious scholar nor a wealthy man, nor did he occupy any high office.

The duty of a government is to protect the lives and belongings of the public. It is duty-bound to provide justice without discrimination and to ensure the basic necessities of life.

Mahmood of Ghazni was a great king and his empire stretched across a vast area. One day a caravan was looted by dacoits within his kingdom and some travellers, including a young man, were killed. The old mother of that young man went to the court of the king and complained bitterly about it. When Mahmood made the lame excuse that it was a far off place, she became infuriated and reprimanded him for conquering such far off places even though he could not ensure the security of his subjects there. The king immediately ordered a contingent of soldiers to go to the spot and impose the government’s writ.

This column is about the Memon Community who wholeheartedly supported newly-born Pakistan, firstly by bringing in badly needed hard cash and then by putting up a variety of large industrial concerns in both Wings of Pakistan. They are, as a community, one of the greatest benefactors of Pakistan.

When my mother and younger sister came to Pakistan, my elder brother, who was with the Karachi Police, hired a flat in a neat and clean building near Jubilee Cinema opposite the Police Hospital. There was a covered market at Ranchor Lines, near where a large Memon community resided.

Recently I wrote two articles, one on “Ghairat” and the other on “Beghairati.” This led to a lively debate on these topics and it soon became obvious that the articles had hurt the feelings of certain people, mostly those who were corrupt, swindlers, munafiqs, etc., and I was bitterly criticised. When I commented to a friend that they were like thieves caught with a straw in their beard, he laughingly retorted that it was not merely a straw but a whole broom. Today’s article contains a lesson and moral message to all those in high positions. I sincerely hope those who need to will get the hint.

We all know and appreciate that each office has its sanctity. A teacher is expected to be exemplary in honesty, imparting knowledge and conducting examinations. A judge is expected to impart justice on the merit of the case, without fear or favour. Law enforcing agencies are expected to be honest, impartial, kind and helpful. In this way, each office has its own sanctity, violation of which is an unforgivable crime. Here I would like to give some examples of this sanctity.
