Alams vision of Bangladesh
History Of Bangladesh: Original a part (present Bangladesh was then called Greater Bengali) of undivided India it was earlier
carved out of India (and named East Pakistan) by the colonialist British, in 1947, simultaneously creating West Pakistan,
based of religious considerations. What a ' creative' design: a large chunk of land called India in between, with West & East
Pakistan on two sides; rather, it was an ulterior motivation of the former imperialist power, in Hinduism; as a 'pasting-gift',
the British created divisions based on religious affiliations.
Ultimately, this unfeasible and untenable administrative- arrangement could not remain effective any longer, and in 1971,
miraculously, independent Bangladesh emerged, when at the pinnacle of successive tyrant military regimes gen. Yahya Khan,
the dictator of West Pakistan imposed Martial-Law in the East, and imprisoned all political leaders in this region, including
the recently elected President of Pakistan (East & West) Sheikh Mujib-ur-Rahman and they killed more then thirty million innocent
people of Bangladesh during the ninth month so called military ruler against the liberation army of Bangladesh in 1971.
Sheikh was then empowered by his political party to head a government-in-exile, while still languishing in prison. At the
express-request of the founder of Bangladesh, Sheikh Mujib-ur-Rahman, and international gestures of goodwill towards India,
the then Indian Prime Minister Mrs.Indira Gandhi sent troops to the aid of the local liberation forces called 'Mukti-Bhini'.
The joint forces commanded by Indian General Jagjit Singh Aurora compelled the Pakistan army to surrender within two weeks
uner Gen. A.A.K. Niazi.
Religious & Spiritual Aspects of the area called the Golden Delta (Bay of Bengal) as envisioned by His Eminency.
The British had sensed the natural wealth but failed to drain it, as they done in other areas of the Indian sub-continent.
Now American scientists have identified 19 such sites.
In 1968 His Eminency was a student of eighth grade in the Sarkar Hat N.R. High School, Misarai, and Chittagong. At the tender
age, he was so advanced spiritually and intellectually that he shot off a detailed twelve page personal missive to the Military
ruler of West Pakistan, Field Marshal Gen. Ayub Khan.
His 'Dreamer-of-Golden-Bengal' Proclamation follows:
East Pakistan is a land replete with vast untapped natural mineral resources, manpower, and crops. The regimes ruling Pakistan
since 1947 have failed to give enough thought and attention to fully exploit these for the elevation of the living standards
of the inhabitant local populace. Then started military rule in 58. However, you are a hero of the military establishment
of this region, creating infrastructure as highways, and railways etc. I appreciate your gracious consideration of the East
Pakistani people and their problems. I, also admire the dedicated work of your Governor, Lt. Gen.Azam khan.
East and West Pakistan are rooted in totally diverse cultures, heritage, linguistic and socio-economic ethos, political and
historical milieu, food habits, customs and characteristics etc. Hence, they should not, and cannot, be a single entity for
long; it is just not possible considering all the factors.
The famous Mughal Dynastic rule extended over undivided India, for over 300 years (15th century to 18th century). Emperor
Jehangir, a descendant of the Founder of the dynasty, planned to visit Bengal areas of Dhaka and Chittagong. His local administrators
in these areas, Shahista Khan named Dhaka as Jahangirnagar and Chittagong as Islamabad, in honor of the Royal visit.
Jahangir arrived there with his entourage comprising a nine member high-powered advisory council of intellectuals. It must
be noted that with only exception of Aurangzeb all his predecessor Mughal Emperors were illiterate. Nevertheless, they were
intelligent, and also preferred to encourage, and to seek and rely on the genius of their advisors.
When the royal party arrived there in the territory of chandpur, his advisors were there for a period of about six hours,
and during this time they observed a host of natural phenomenon including rainbows, heavy rain, sunny weather, storms etc.
Also, they noticed the two rivers Meghna and Padma flowing together' this was miraculous phenomenon of ebb and tide; water
of two colors and two tastes: one as sweet, distilled, mineral water was puss and clean, and the other muddy and salted. they
were intrigued at what they saw, and so they inquired in a humble manner why the Emperor was visiting the area, especially
without wine and women. He told them that it was in accordance and pursuance of the dream of his forefathers, and as advised
by their counselors. The Emperor sought their opinion about the people, and the geography terrain.
After detailed observations, they reported back. They advised him that though the area is miraculously rich in resources,
the people are unworthy, with the exception of some religious-minded and spiritually-oriented guides and priests who migrated
from Arab and other countries to preach Islam and Buddhism in the Indian sub-continent. They have a chronological ancestry
and trace their lineage. The native people, the original inhabitants were generally fishermen, nicknamed 'Mug'. In the 12th
century gradually the eastern part of India was developed by the migrant families of Greek, Egyptian, Iranian, Turkish and
Portuguese origins. This was an amalgamation of all these cultures and races.
And so Jahangir and his party returned to Delhi, abandoning their visit to Dhaka and Chittagong, thereby leaving the dream
Later, another Emperor Azim-ushan sent his Prime Minister Roshan Ali. This functionary was suffering from leprosy. He tried
Indian herbal medicine but failed to be cured. Then, in a dream he was commanded by Almighty God to go to a holy place called
Dayera Sharif in Azimpur area, where resided the great Sufi Saint Dayem, a direct descendant of the Prophet of Islam, Hazrat
Mohammad (pubh). Roshan Ali was cured of the dreaded disease. He resigned from his political position and took up religious
preaching, and stayed there for twelve years. He presented a historic gold-leafed copy bore the seal and signature of Emperor
Azim. Roshan Ali was later married to the only daughter of the Sufi Spiritual Master.
After several centuries, His Eminency visited holy Dayera Sharif on December 31, 1976 and acknowledged and researched all
the academic resources, It is said: 'History repeats itself ', and so it was repeated when he was married to the only daughter
of the current Sufi Shah Sayed Dayemullah, the 42nd descendant of the Prophet, and concurrent custodianship of the Holy Dayera
Sharif. In right Ernest, he took up the duty of preaching Islam from Rangoon in Burma to manikganj in Bangladesh, and administering
the shrines. For 15 years he researched extensively various sources including accounts written by Ibn-I-Batuta, and concluded
that generally the ruling coterie and political touts, without knowledge and aims, objectives, and a sense of patriotism were
exploiting innocent gullible people with corrupt practice and oppressive tactics. Confusion and chaos was the 'order of the
These communications addressed to F.M. Ayub khan and Gen. Yahya Khan was duly acknowledged, but both failed to comprehend
the import of the hidden message. Finally, on December 16, 1971, with the Benediction of Almighty, and the blessings of Sufi
Masters, Bangladesh emerged as an independent entity.
95% of the people are Muslim. Ambitious Army Generals and corrupt politicians have been busy devising ways and means of unsurprising
power and wealth since independence, giving a damn to the betterment of the poor masses. They paid no heed to spiritual and
religious guidance, and continued on their corrupt path unchecked. They have no specific charted plan of action.
Upon his release from prison in Pakistan, Sheikh did not maintain cordial relations mentally, with the Indian establishment.
Consequently, he was isolated, and then assassinated due to conspiracy involving his army. The influence of KGB (Soviet Intelligence)
and RAW (Indian Intelligence) wanted the Indian allegations that the Indian army took away ammunition, heavy arms and luxury
goods from the cantonment, when they had to finally withdraw.
Before the Blessed Advent of Imam Mahdi and Prophet Isah, none can help the Nation, and the state of affairs shall remain
as it is, until such time. After that, this region shall emerge and be regarded as the most influential and wealthy place
on the surface of earth, more than the kingdom of Brunei.
In March, 1972, His Eminency visited Banga Bhawan, at the invitation of the first president of Bangladesh, Hon. Justice Abu
Sayed Chowdhury. Then, in September of '72,H.E. met with Sheikh Mujib-ur-Rahman and his political associate and uncle, Hafez
Monir Hussain of Armani Tola, old part of Dhaka, at P.M. residence 32, Dhan Mandi. They, too, could not understand of Eminency.
At the request of the First President & Prime Minister, His Eminency founded, in 1972, the United Nations Assn. of Bangladesh,
under the Patronage of the Bangladesh, President and Prime Minister. His Eminency was Founder Secretary-general, with Hafez
Monir Hussain as its President. It must be noted that the UNAB was founded, at a time when the United Nations and the United
States of America had not yet granted formal recognition the newly-born Bangladesh. Later His Eminency address communications
to all world leaders, seeking recognition for the newly born country. The UN Secretary-, Dr. Kurt Waldheim paid a surprise
visit to Bangladesh, during a stopover en-route Bangkok. His Eminency paid courtesy call on Dr. Waldheim, to inform him about
the details of UNBA, and recognition matter. This Organization has been affiliated to D.P.I of the UN in 1975, Sheikh Mujib
was assassinated, with the active connivance of the army. In 1977, H.E. visited President and Chief Martial law Administrator,
Justice Abu Shahadat Mohammad Sayem (a relative of his) in the presidential house. This gentleman failed to understand. Subsequent
Presidents, Justice Abus Satter and President Gen. Erahad followed suit. Following the same set pattern were two prime Ministers,
Sheikh Hasina, and Khaleda Zia, whom His Eminency did not even deem proper to advise. “These two women themselves are
their own problems for their nation. They will never succeed to lead Bangladesh. I am praying for all of them, God the Almighty
bless all of them and bless Bangladesh its citizens.”
So now, having been tired of all this advocacy, H.E. has finally decided to address this very significant issue to a large
audience: the global family, instead of the local political fraternity in Bangladesh. This Millennium prophecy goes out to
all Heads of States and Governments, worldwide. His Eminency is always praying to Almighty God to save Planet Earth and the
crowned creation of Almighty God, the human beings, accordingly in reference of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Prophet of mankind
and peace and the attorney general for mercy in the day of judgment.
