Pakistan after Partition never allowed Minorities to hold the highest office.
No member of a minority can hold the highest office in Pakistan under its present constitution. No Hindu has held any portfolio in the Central Government. No Hindu held a Chief Justice or a judge or similar other position. And yet there are more than eight million Hindus in Pakistan. Ability and integrity are of no consequence. In other words the minorities are suspect. The two-nation theory applied in practice with a vengeance.
After living together for several years, today it is being discovered that Hindus and Muslims are separate and under no circumstances they can be identified with each other. After the establishment of Pakistan, the minority community has demanded to be known simply as Pakistan citizen and wanted only citizenship, communal rights, and national integration. It had supported joint electorates even at its own cost. But to day it has become clear that it is impossible to build up a unified nation in Pakistan.
This would suggest only a Muslim can be a national of Pakistan. Strangely enough, all Muslims in Pakistan are not being treated as its nationals. Some of them are pushed surreptitiously into Assam and also Burma and when evicted by the Government concerned are dubbed are Indian nationals. The Indian census figure for 196i show that there was an increase of 25.6 percent in the population of Muslims in India during 1951-61, against the overall increase of 21.5 percent in the population of India. Now it may several folds higher. Not only could there be no question of Muslims leaving India. Muslims from Pakistan had infact been infiltrating into the surrounding Indian states of West Bengal, Assam and Tirupura in large numbers. This is also proved by Pakistan census figures.
The Indian census figures in the neighbouring border districts of Indian states are complementary and reveal that the population Muslims in Tirupura rose by 68 percent, in Darjeeling by 200 percent , in Dinajpur by 74 percent, in Malda by 62 percent, in Garo hills by 49 percent and in Khasi and Jaintia Hill Districts by 88 percent. Considering the overall increase in the Muslim population in India as a whole was 25.6 percent [!961 figures].
According to the 2001 census there are around 151 million Muslims in India.
There have been three Muslim presidents of India, Dr. Zakir Hussain, Dr Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed and Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.
Hussain was elected President of India on May 13, 1967. In his inaugural speech he said that the whole of India was his home and all its people were his family.
Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed (was President of India from 1974 to 1977.
Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam , was the eleventh President of India, serving from 2002 to 2007
Whether Pakistan can tell whether one Hindu was appointed in highest office of Pakistan Government?
