            The Uprising of 1857 War of                                        Independence

        The subcontinent had great importance in the history due to natural resources. It attracted Turks, Afghan rulers and central Asian rulers. Apart from this the Britishers also took interest in the region. They settled here as traders in the reign of Mughal Emperor Jahangir. Later on, they came across the weakness of Muslims and finally they took control of whole sub-continent. The traders became the masters of the region. Muslims and Hindus joined the British government. The government made such policies which were totally antagonistic to local traditions. The policies Pushed them against Britishers. They fought war against the state.

      The British government considered “the
uprising” as revolt. They thought that local were the servants of state and they should not have fought war. The indigenous writers considered if war of independence. In their opinion, the Muslim 8! Hindu soldiers Fought for their freedom and for their legal rights from which they were neglected.

           In general, if we think for a while, we will come to know about the fact that the Britishers were not local ruler rather they were foreigners who deprived their rights and it was right of both Muslim and Hindu to protect their land from foreigners. So that’s why we always consider it as war of independence.

          The Britishers treated Indian bestially. They were sold as slaves in Europe. They were usedas guards. 'Iheir resources were used for London, Under these circumstances, the uprising of 1857 will be considered as war of independence because they fought for homeland and it will not be called as mutiny.

         We have evidence from British history. Benjamin Dissaeli, the opposition leader of British parliament at that time, declared the uprising of 1857 was not mutiny but it was their legal right.

From the above brief discussion, we can simply say it was war of independence. Although it was joint struggle of both Muslims and Hindus,But Muslims were targeted as cause of it.

  The political party of that time i.e congress
 also took care of interest of Hindus.So that's why Sir Syed Ahmed Khan told Muslim not to cooperate  with congress and finally they organized their own political party named as All India Muslim League.

Diversity, the Beautiful

Diversity, the Beautiful
          From a scientific perspective, diversity is a key-stone and core function of the entire universe.One can imagine that without diversity all around, the universe would have been a uni-worse place. Global food chain and its interdependency complexes develop a food web among all the members of plants and animals and all those which are living but they do not fall into the category of plants and animals.

          Each and every family member of this global food web is an important player and is a key link or a bridging unit of its own limit and level in general or in specific terms among food chain tiers enabling each other to co-exist.

Religio-political history of the global community does not offer much of respectful experiences in its Pool. Even though several examples are attractive and appealing in all societies across the globe. One of such an example cited by Dimont Max in his work  "The Indestructible Jews" that in Medina a society eme…

In the Memory of Martyrs of APS Peshawar

Martyrs of APS Peshawar

                  Some color less eyes
                 Some wounded bodies
                     Some torn clothes
               Some notebooks with scars
                         Scars of blood
                          Scars of tears
                        Scars of sadness
                      Scars of innocence
                         All are craying
                       All are screaming
                     What was our fault?
                     What was our fault?

                    We were the flowers
                 Flowers of your garden
                     We had to blossom
     We had to spread fragrance of happiness
            We had to give scent to new spring
                        Ah! Some cruel feet
                     Ruined us, wrecked us
                                  We........
          Unblossomed untouched flowers.....

O! My mom! My beloved mom,I had to sleep in your lap

Life is Never a cat walk

Life is Nevet a cat walk
Life gives us hope and courage to live.We experience both happiness and sorrows while moving ahead in life.Their are two sides of the same coin.There is no single person who has not faced any problem while climbing the ladder of success.There are both joyful and sad moments in life but that does not stop us from living life to the fullest and give a full stop to out ambition.
       Everyone who has made it to the top had some exceptional qualities of fighting back and not giving into failures.There are many who give up in harsh circumstances but there are fewer who fight back and not ready to surrender themselves to the unfavourable situations.It all rests in our hand while choosing a way for moving ahead.It's correctly said,"Only those who risk going too far can probably find out how far one can go".
    Things are never easy for anyone.Everyone has to face life's miseries and return back to face the world with an open heart.Life is not a c…
