Behind the Curtains – Across the Lines…
BashaoorPakistan.com (ex. IBITIANS.com) is just a thought provoking & awareness creation effort especially for young generation of Pakistan. Purpose is to collect and write whatever could be in benefit for everyone. Moreover, the self actualization and moral character building along with information.
In fall 2003, when I joined Punjab University Lahore, I thought that a platform should have which may serve purposefully to institute’s 1000’s of students. Then I started IBITAINS @ YAHOO! GROUPS, Which got good success as far as an educational group is concerned, where members’ efforts were involved to promote it as well. But Later, as time evolved, I started feeling that there are issues around us; which people especially young generation over the internet should know. They should think about real problems of Pakistani society, which may help towards a better Pakistan.
As time passed by, many things got change, my studies ended by there, I joined an organization for my economic needs, but this group phenomenon urged me always, to do ‘something more’ because the readership and access for the group were limited, and there was certainly a need for a broad medium. Me, instead of writing or preaching just used my Urdu editorials reading habit and directed the selected articles towards readers with respect that they are better analyzers and writers.
Also I would like to mention few events & personal source of inspirations. I watched a Movie… Rang De Basanti (Aamir Khan starer) It was such an issue based movie, which I think having common background of struggle against the British for an ideological land and a sheer level of patriotism, in it, inspired me to perform my ‘role’ according to my capabilities and domain. Then it was suspension of Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry by that time dictator Pervez Musharraf, which filled many of us with anger and frustration. Then the events which took place like 12th of May Massacre in Karachi & the blood-shed incident of Lal Masjid, Jamia Hafsa which actually determined the parameters of BTC-IBITIANS (Now Bashaoor Pakistan).
This brought BashaoorPakistan.com (ex. IBITIANS.com) in to being, as you know it today, just an effort from me to mostly collect and write whatever could be in benefit for everyone with the norms of our religion and society. Since launch BashaoorPakistan.com (ex. IBITIANS.com) has been a success story all over the world especially in Urdu knowing community. So July 1st 2007, was the date when this site came into being, although domain was registered a long ago… but finally I managed sometime and resources to start this project. Especially I would like to mention and thanks to Daily Express, Daily Jang, Daily Ummat, BBC Urdu & 100’s of others resources whose website made my work easy… as all of the hard works and efforts are done by their original teams after the writers and I am acting just as a collector and publisher. Later few people have joined and helped me in hard times for the cause and still doing great job silently. I personally would like to thank Noushah Arshad our fellow blogger too with humble heart, upon her dedication and tireless efforts to brought the posts up to date.
On completion of 4 years this July ’11, we came to realize from feedback that a need to broaden the canvas is there. So although the affiliation with the old name remains the same in heart, we decided to shift the site towards a cause oriented name. This the name Bashaoor Pakistan came in to being and Alhamdulilah, we aquired the domain. Next challenge was to shift the site technically and data re-organization. Also we did some structural changes too. Gradually we are transforming the site without interrupting the readers and InshaAllah; soon you will see the site in whole new look.
In this website, I published thoughts concerning the ins and outs of defining and describing the situational experience of Pakistan. People write frequently about the future of Pakistan but also sometimes the past. And there are times I find it irresistible to delve into Literature, books especially poetry or even social issues in general.
BashaoorPakistan.com (ex. IBITIANS.com) is not only serving as a collection of beautiful Urdu columns & articles, but also expanding our national language horizon through internet. In short, mission is to help make sure that you can find and read latest information as seamlessly as possible. I look forward to get your prayers, attention and hearing suggestions on what would you would like to see me cover. Dive in, there’s plenty to read…!
