Punjabis are in a Struggle to Revive the Punjabi Nationalism.

Punjabi identity refers to those for whom the Punjabi language is the first language, those assimilated into the Punjabi culture, they attain the Punjabi traditions, who reside in the Punjab region and associate themselves with the Punjabi Nation. Therefore, Punjabi identity is independent of race, color, creed or religion. However, from the prospect of religion, the Punjabi nation is composed of 56% Muslim Punjabis, 26% Hindu Punjabis, 14% Sikh Punjabis, 4% Christian Punjabis.

Punjabi is the 9th biggest nation and Punjabi speaking population of the world. The Punjabi nation is the 3rd biggest nation of South Asia. Punjabi Muslims are the 3rd largest ethnic community in the Muslim Ummah. Punjabis are the largest ethnic population in Pakistan. (A state composed of the area of Indus Valley Civilization). But, since the partition of British India, socially and politically Punjabis were a confused, depressed and deprived nation due to "Dilemma of Division of Punjab", "Trauma of Massacre of 2 Million Punjabis" and " Shock of World Largest Mass Migration". Therefore, Pakistani Punjabi's were hanging to relocate their ideology that; Are they Muslim? Are they Pakistani? Are they Punjabi? 

Actually, in the 1945-46, due to politics of congress dominated by the Hindi speaking, UP-ite Hindu leaders of UP, CP, Hindu Punjabi's started to prefer the Hindi language instead of Punjabi by declaring the Hindi as a language of Hindus and started to become clones of Gunga Jumna culture and traditions with the loss of their own Punjabi identity. Later on, Muslim Punjabi’s did the same and started to become the clones of Gunga Jumna culture and traditions with the loss of their own Punjabi identity, because of preferring the Urdu language upon Punjabi by declaring the Urdu as a language of Muslims, due to the influence of the Muslim League, dominated by the Urdu speaking, UP-ite Muslim leaders of UP, CP and presence of UP-ite Muslims in Punjab.  

As a consequence of preferring Hindi language by Hindu Punjabi’s by declaring the Hindi as a language of Hindus and preferring the Urdu language by the Muslim Punjabi’s by declaring the Urdu as a language of Muslims, the characteristics of assimilation to accomplish the sociological instinct, started to switch over from “ Affinity of Nation to Emotions of Religion” and “A Great Nation of Sub-Continent Got Divided on Ground of Religion with the Partition of Punjab and Got Emerged into the Muslim State Pakistan and Hindu State India”.

Hence, it completed the fall of Punjabi nation and Punjabi people started to receive the reward of hate and regret from every honorable nation, in addition, humiliation, loathing, and abuse from Hindi-Urdu speaking persons too. 

It was the punishment of Punjabi's for not respecting their motherland, language, culture, and traditions, due to avoiding, ignoring and rejecting the act of unity by natural affinity and attraction of the various tribes, castes and the inhabitants of the Punjab into a broader common "Punjabi" identity. 

However, now Pakistani Muslim Punjabis are on the way to come out from "Dilemma of Division of Punjab", "Trauma of Massacre of 2 Million Punjabis" and " Shock of World Largest Mass Migration", that is displacement of 20 Million Punjabis within few months due to division of Punjab for the sake of creating Pakistan in 1947 and overcome from the domination of Urdu language, hegemony of Gunga Jumna culture, supremacy of UP-ites and UP-ite mindsets clones of Gunga Jumna culture in policy making and decision taking of national affairs and foreign relations of the Punjabi nation and Pakistan.

In a matter of fact, Pakistani Muslim Punjabis had realized that; If we start speaking other languages and forget our own, we would not be we, we would be clones of an alien people; we would be aliens to ourselves" UNESCO, 1958.

Therefore, now Pakistani Muslim Punjabis had traced their identity that;

1. They are inhabitants of the historic land of five rivers called as Punjab, their language is Punjabi, their culture is Punjabi and they attain the Punjabi traditions, therefore, without discrimination of race, color, creed or religion, they are Punjabi and they are the part of Punjabi nation. That's why, as a Punjabi and being the largest population in the 9th biggest nation and Punjabi speaking population of the world and the 3rd biggest nation of South Asia, they are supposed to build up the respectable social, economic and political interaction with other religious communities of the Punjabi Nation, as well as, political stability, economic growth and social respect of their nation in the worldly life affairs.

2. They follow the teachings of Islam, therefore, without discrimination of race, color, creed or nation, they are Muslim and they are the part of Muslim Ummah. That's why, as a Muslim and being the 3rd largest ethnic community in the Muslim Ummah, they are supposed to practice Islam for their moral character building and the spiritual development of the life of the hereafter, moreover, respectable social, economic and political interaction with other ethnic communities of the Muslim Ummah.

3. They are the citizens of Pakistan, therefore, without discrimination of race, color, creed or nation, they are Pakistani and they are the part of the Pakistani State (A state composed of the area of Indus Valley Civilization). That's why, as a Pakistani and being the largest ethnic population in Pakistan, they are supposed to take part in the political stability, economic growth and social respect of their state and other ethnic population in Pakistan, furthermore, respectable social, economic and political interaction with other states of the world.

Hence, after tracing the identity with a revival of “Punjabi Nationalism”, now Pakistani Muslim Punjabi masses are on the way of “Punjabi Nationalism”. Therefore;

1. Pakistani Muslim Punjabi's are in the struggle to promote the Punjabi language, culture, and traditions. 

2. Pakistani Muslim Punjabi's are in the demand from the Government of Punjab to implement the Punjabi as an educational and official language of Punjab. 

3. After stability in agricultural sector, trade sector, industrial sector, education institutions, skilled professions, media organizations and political organizations of Pakistan, at present, Pakistani Muslim Punjabi's are in the way of dominating the civil bureaucracy, military establishment and foreign affair institutions for the policy-making and decision-making of the national and international affairs of Pakistan by replacing the control of UP-ite and UP-ite mindsets clones in policy-making of national and international affairs of Pakistan.
