Though we are Muslims and Islam is the unification power between us but we have not taken the retrospective abrasive events seriously. We are in need of escape from the paradox of dis-integration. We need to beget brotherhood.
As In the last sermon (known as Khutba-e-hajjatul-Wida) , Our beloved Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) said,
“O’ People! Every Muslim is the brother of every other Muslim, and all the Muslims form one brotherhood. And your slaves; see that you feed them with such food as you eat yourselves, and clothe them with the clothes that you yourselves wear.”

Exertions on individual bases are required to bring the nation on single platform. We need to cogitate over and figure out the symptoms, remedies and solutions pertaining to dis-unification. Then we will be a powerful Nation Insha-Allah.
