The tragic story of our History The killing of more than 600 crowd of nonviolent protesters,at Babrra Charsada on 12th August 1948,was a crime against humanity worse, than Jallianwala Bagh massacre. Under the Cruel and unusual punishmen, govt recieved the cost of bullets from the families of the martyrs and hospitals denied treatment to people injured in Babrra Charsada. This is the tragic story of Pashtuns. The story begins with the division of the Indian subcontinent between two major states, India and Pakistan. On 15th August 1947 Mr. Jinnah took oath as Governor General of Pakistan. Mr. Jinnah had urged Qayoum Khan to create a breakaway faction of Congress, by any means, an Muslim League government could be formed in the province.That laid the foundations of horse trading for all times to come. August 22, 1947: A week after gaining independence, Dr Khan Sahib's ministry was dismissed by the Governor on orders from Jinnah and a minority govt. of muslim league leader Abdul Qayum Khan was imposed in NWFP ( Pakhtunkhwa). In July 1948 the provincial governor of NWFP promulgated an ordinance which authorized the government of detaining any one indefinitely and confiscating their properties without disclosing any reason to the detainee. The worse thing was that these detainees were even not allowed to challenge their arrests in the courts. This ordinance was against the people of the provine.Hundreds of Khudaai Khidmatgar were arrested, tortured and their properties were confiscated under this ordinance. On 12 August1948 when a crowd of nonviolent protesters, had gathered to protest against the arrest and torcher of their leaders like Bacha Khan, Dr. Khan Sahib ,Qazi Attaullah and Arbab Abdul Ghaafoor Khan, in Babrra,Charsada. The forces fired directly into a crowd of peacefull Khudaai Khidmatgar, until they had spent all their ammunition, more than 600 people were killed and nearly 1200 were wounded, including women and children. Jinah saheb fully support Qayoum Khan who then gave the order to fire upon the crowd. The govt recieved the cost of bullets from the families of the martyrs and injured were not allowed in government hospital for treatment. Pre-partition / Pre-independence period can be classified in two ways, Plan A( Struggle for independence of india ) and Plan B ( Struggle for division of india ) A- Khudaai Khidmatgar was in the forefront of the struggle against British rule.The real heroes who gave us the freedom. B- Muslim league struggle was for partition on the basis of religion. " Ayaz Amir wrote 'The Congress fought the British. The Muslim League fought the Congress. This history is not irrelevant because it had an impact on the future." Khudaai Khidmatgar and Bacha Khan opposed the Partition on the basis of religion, but it happened. The Indian National Congress declared its acceptance of the partition plan without consulting the Khudai Khidmatgar leaders. When the Congress party accepted the partition plan, he told them "You have thrown us to the wolves." "in Raza Wazir words ' He felt betrayed. The last words he uttered to Mahatma Gandhi were, “You have thrown us to the wolves”, a rather prophetic statement in light of what he was to face in the newly created country." by Zareen Zadah Esapzy Sources and References : 1- Raza Wazir "King without a throne" 2- Pakistan: History and Politics. 3- Wasim Altaf " JINNAH "THE QUAID" 4- The Two-Muslim Theory – Tahir Mehdi 5- Professor Jahanzeb Niaz 6- M Khan Lodhi " Babrra Massacre" 7- Raqib, Mohammad.
