Advani could not tell Pakistan to join Mother India.
Date: 09 Nov 2007
While delivering his speech in Pakistan, Advaniji quoted M.A.Jinnah's First address to the constituent Assembly of pakistan, in which Jinnah wanted Pakistan to be a secular state.
Advani ji tried to highlight Pakiastan's derailment from the path envisioned by its Father of the nation.
Advaniji never said that Jinnah was a secular, he just quoted from Jinnah's speech.
This was misquoted by opposition parties and his distractors with-in the party.
Today Pakistan is neither Secular state nor a true Democracy, it is a failed state. It is facing terrorism, which it tried to export to India.
It needs courage to stand by what you said, It was Advaniji only who sacrificed his position, but did not backtracked from his statement. Any other politician would have typically taken refuge of "being mis-quoted".

Accepting Pakistan as a Failed Nation-State

On November 3, 2007 Pakistani dictator Pervez Musharraf declared a
state emergency across Pakistan, imposed martial law, and suspended
that nation's Constitution. In the capital of Islamabad, soldiers
forcibly entered the Supreme Court, surrounded judges' homes, put
opposition leaders under house arrest, and began rounding up
thousands of peaceful political activists and politicians. On
Monday, November 5th, thousands of lawyers took to the streets to
protest the illegal imposition of martial law in their country.
Musharraf's response was to have hundreds of these peaceful lawyers
violently dragged through the streets and arrested. In the last two
days alone, an estimated minimum of 3,500 people have been forcibly
incarcerated as political prisoners.
For those Pakistan watchers who are familiar with the tragic history
of this artificially created state, this latest crackdown on
democracy and freedom by a governing Islamist elite that has imposed
dictatorship on its citizens for most of its 60 years of existence,
comes as no surprise.
Originally constituting the western provinces of India, Pakistan's
artificial establishment came about on August 14, 1947 as an Islamic
bulwark against what the British feared would be an eventually
powerful and prosperous Hindu India that could in the future possibly
rival its own colonial interests. Previous to 1947, there was never
an historical political entity known as "Pakistan" (indeed, the very
term "Pakistan" itself was coined from an acronym of Punjab,
Afghania, Kashmir, Sindh, and Baluchistan). In the last 60 years,
Pakistan has instigated three major wars and one minor war against
its democratic neighbor of India. Pakistan is a country that has
been riddled since its manufacture with a unsettling history of
perennial dictatorships, martial law, political and religious
repression, persecution of minorities, horrendous ethnic strife,
state-sponsored terrorism, and an irreparably failed economy
deceptively propped up by the infusion of multi-billions of U.S. tax-
To the tremendous bewilderment of many, the Bush administration has
insisted upon making Pakistan a key ally in the war on terror despite
the fact that Pakistan has always been itself one of the most
insidiously unremitting state sponsors of terrorism in the world. It
was the infamous ISI secret intelligence agency of Pakistan that
founded and supported the Taliban in its initial take over of
Afghanistan and in its ruthless reign until its final overthrow at
the hands of the U.S. military. Pakistan has harbored Osama bin
Laden and his al-Qaeda minions in its northwestern frontier territory
for the last five years, and refuses to allow U.S. military personnel
into the area to capture him. Pakistan has waged a proxy terrorist
war against the Hindu civilian population of Kashmir for decades,
making hundreds of thousands of Kashmiri Hindus refugees in their own
country and devastating a region of India that at one time was one of
the most beautiful and peaceful places on earth. By the sheer
weight of the sum total of its destructive terrorist actions over
the years, Pakistan has brazenly shown the world that it not only
deserves to be placed squarely within the so-called Axis of Evil
formulated by President Bush in 2002 – but that it belongs in the
prime spot of prominence in that notorious list!
By every measure of what constitutes a successful nation-state,
Pakistan has shown the world since its inception that it is incapable
of meeting even the minimal standards of surviving as a viable
unified political-social entity.
Pakistan is an artificial political construct in which several
diverse and historically rival ethnic groups were arbitrarily forced
together into what was supposed to become an Islamic melting pot.
Rather, Pakistan has been faced with calls for independence by many
of these various ethnic groups, which has in turn led to decades of
brutal oppression by the central authorities against ethnic
activists. Like Yugoslavia in the 1990s, Pakistan is destined to be
rent asunder by these contrasting ethnic interests in the very near
future. Pakistan's 165 million long-suffering people would be
significantly better off if this natural process of political
devolution were allowed to occur.
Rather than continuing to support the notion of an impossible to
salvage central state, Pakistan should be allowed to naturally
devolve into the several smaller states historically comprising the
territorial demarcations of its multiple ethnic divisions. Rather
than a failed Pakistani state, there should be four independent
states of Balochistan, Afghania (the present "North-West Frontier
Province" that constitutes the traditional home of the Pashtun
people), Punjab, and Sindh, with "Azad" Kashmir reverting back to
Nothing less than the naturally occuring disintegration of the
present-day Pakistan will ensure the political stability of the
region, the assurance of the human and civil rights of the people of
Pakistan, and the irradication of the world's most unstable and
dangerous terrorist state. The latest crippling blow to democracy in
a long history of such blows must be enough to starkly persuade us
that it is time to move on from the failed "Pakistan" experiment.
I would urge all concerned readers to immediately contact their
Congress and Senate representatives, or their parliamentary
representatives, and demand an end to any continued support to the
