This isn’t a choice it’s a command!
2:216 fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.
This is not the time for the majority of believers to give in to the oppressive forces that take their religion to excess and abuse the laws of the Quran. You see it happening yet what is your plan to fight those who oppress?
4:75 How should ye not fight for the cause of Allah and of the feeble among men and of the women and the children who are crying: Our Lord! Bring us forth from out this town of which the people are oppressors! Oh, give us from Thy presence some protecting friend! Oh, give us from Thy presence some defender!
That would be you! Don’t let fear be your leader. The Quran speaks of battle past where the believers were outnumbered, yet won because of their faith.
3:13 "There has already been for you a Sign in the two armies that met in combat: One was fighting in the cause of Allah, the other resisting Allah. these saw with their own eyes Twice their number. But Allah doth support with His aid whom He pleaseth. In this is a warning for such as have eyes to see
They saw fear, they knew what they were up against but faced their fears.
38:22 When they entered the presence of David, and he was terrified of them, they said: "Fear not: we are two disputants, one of whom has wronged the other: Decide now between us with truth, and treat us not with injustice, but guide us to the even Path
11:94 And when Our commandment came to pass we saved Shueyb and those who believed with Him by a mercy from Us; and the Awful Cry seized those who did injustice, and morning found them prostrate in their dwellings.
And you must do the same. Use the Quran as your guide.
There was a time not long ago when the people of Pakistan lived in peace with each other and will the people of the book. That was a time of prosperity. It was a time of tolerance and justice.
16:90 Allah commands justice, the doing of good, and liberality to kith and kin, and He forbids all shameful deeds, and injustice and rebellion: He instructs you, that ye may receive admonition.
Does Allah see justice in Pakistan, the doing of good, and liberality to kith and kin?
14:34 And He giveth you of all that ye ask for. But if ye count the favours of Allah, never will ye be able to number them. Verily, man is given up to injustice and ingratitude.
Is this what you are doing? Will it be worth your soul in the end?
You are capable of beating the oppressors but only if you stand up!
28:5 And We desired to show favor unto those who were oppressed in the earth, and to make them examples and to make them the inheritors
But not if you do nothing....
28:83 As for that Abode of the Hereafter We assign it unto those who seek not oppression in the earth, nor yet corruption. The sequel is for those who ward off (evil).
What does that mean to you?
2:217 They ask thee concerning fighting in the Prohibited Month. Say: "fighting therein is a grave (offence); but graver is it in the sight of Allah to prevent access to the path of Allah, to deny Him, to prevent access to the Sacred Mosque, and drive out its members." Tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter. Nor will they cease fighting you until they turn you back from your faith if they can. And if any of you Turn back from their faith and die in unbelief, their works will bear no fruit in this life and in the Hereafter; they will be companions of the Fire and will abide therein
You won’t like the food in the Hellfire but you won’t starve. But you must make your choice now.
2:246 Hast thou not Turned thy vision to the Chiefs of the Children of Israel after the time of Moses? They said to a prophet (That was) among them: "Appoint for us a king, that we May fight in the cause of Allah." He said: "Is it not possible, if ye were commanded to fight, that that ye will not fight?" They said: "How could we refuse to fight in the cause of Allah, seeing that we were turned out of our homes and our families?" but when they were commanded to fight, they turned back, except a small band among them. But Allah Has full knowledge of those who do wrong
And turning your back on the oppressors is wrong. Men are the protectors of women and the weak and the elderly and the sick. Turn your back on this responsibility and you are equal to blame in the oppression of all. It will be seen as an injustice as there was a time when you could of stopped the oppressors. What will your excuse be?
30:57 In that day their excuses will not profit those who did injustice, nor will they be allowed to make amends
3:108 These are the Signs of Allah. We rehearse them to thee in Truth: And Allah means no injustice to any of His creatures.
2:150 Whencesoever thou comest forth turn thy face toward the Inviolable Place of Worship; and wheresoever ye may be turn your faces toward it when ye pray so that men may have no argument against you, save such of them as do injustice. Fear them not, but fear Me and so that I may complete My grace upon you, and that ye may be guided
Will you fear the oppressors more than you fear God?
Neither Allah or I want you to go blow people up, while it is an option it is not the best option or your only option.
2:190 fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors
But those who try to oppress must be challenged by all the true believers. Even Muhammad had to deal with those who did not want to fight oppression.
8:65 O Messenger. rouse the Believers to the fight. If there are twenty amongst you, patient and persevering, they will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, they will vanquish a thousand of the Unbelievers: for these are a people without understanding
4:95 Not equal are those believers who sit at home and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit at home. Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit at home by a special reward
3:167 And the Hypocrites also. These were told: "Come, fight in the way of Allah, or at least drive The foe from your city." They said: "Had we known how to fight, we should certainly have followed you." They were that day nearer to Unbelief than to Faith, saying with their lips what was not in their hearts but Allah hath full knowledge of all they conceal
9:81 Those who were left behind (in the Tabuk expedition) rejoiced in their inaction behind the back of the Messenger of Allah. they hated to strive and fight, with their goods and their persons, in the cause of Allah. they said, "Go not forth in the heat." Say, "The fire of Hell is fiercer in heat." If only they could understand
Do you understand, oh men of Pakistan? Or will you crumble like a cheap house of paper?
4:74 Let those fight in the cause of Allah Who sell the life of this world for the hereafter. To him who fighteth in the cause of Allah,- whether he is slain or gets victory - Soon shall We give him a reward of great value.
4:76 Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those who reject Faith fight in the cause of Evil: So fight ye against the friends of Satan: feeble indeed is the cunning of Satan
Who will win Pakistan, the good or the evil? It’s up to each of you to decide your fate.
4:77 Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those who were told to hold back their hands from fight but establish regular prayers and spend in regular charity? When the order for fighting was issued to them, behold! a section of them feared men as - or even more than - they should have feared Allah. They said: "Our Lord! Why hast Thou ordered us to fight? Wouldst Thou not Grant us respite to our natural term, near enough?" Say: "Short is the enjoyment of this world: the Hereafter is the best for those who do right: Never will ye be dealt with unjustly in the very least
9:123 O ye who believe! fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you: and know that Allah is with those who fear Him
4:84 Then fight in Allah's cause - Thou art held responsible only for thyself - and rouse the believers. It may be that Allah will restrain the fury of the Unbelievers; for Allah is the strongest in might and in punishment.
9:44 Those who believe in Allah and the Last Day ask thee for no exemption from fighting with their goods and persons. And Allah knoweth well those who do their duty.
Do you really believe the oppressors are the true believers?
9:111 Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs in return is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur'an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah. then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme
4:124 If any do deeds of righteousness,- be they male or female - and have faith, they will enter Heaven, and not the least injustice will be done to them
Believing women you too will need to stand up against injustice.
2:193 And fight them on until there is no more Tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah. but if they cease, Let there be no hostility except to those who practise oppression
4:30 If any do that in rancour and injustice,- soon shall We cast them into the Fire: And easy it is for Allah
4:148 Allah loveth not that evil should be noised abroad in public speech, except where injustice hath been done; for Allah is He who heareth and knoweth all things.
What more do you need to see? Hadith being equal to Quran? Liberties been stripped from your kin? Oppression instead of education. Injustice does not bring prosperity.
2:155 Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere
Will you pass this test or fail?
3:142 Did ye think that ye would enter Heaven without Allah testing those of you who fought hard In His Cause and remained steadfast?
The future of Pakistan is your hands. Have faith and you will be guided. Do nothing and you will face doom in this life and in the hereafter.

"We are also to blame who, in our own complacency and detachment, have ceded our religion to brutal murderers"Columnist Mosharraf Zaidi said Pakistanis have to be willing to stand up publicly for tolerance — even if it means risking their own lives.
"There will be casualties," he said, "but you will have a civil discourse
In recent years, hundreds of minority Shiite Muslims and non-Muslims such as Christians have been killed by Islamist extremists. On May 29, 2010, nearly 100 members of the Ahmadi sect were gunned down in a massacre.
"Muslims and Christians used to live peacefully. We used to attend each other's functions. We used to go to churches. They used to visit us on Eid" — Muslim holidays, recalled Ali Muhammad, 65, a retired banker.
For much of the first half of this country's 63-year existence, the standard farewell was "Khuda-Hafiz" — meaning "God Protect You." Under Zia's rule, a new term gained favor: "Allah-Hafiz." It basically means the same thing, but is more in line with many Islamists' belief that while "Khuda" can mean any god, "Allah," an Arabic word, refers to the true God in Islam.
And dump the Arabic already!
