Deliberate Deception in the White Paper
The ‘White Paper’ is not very easy to understand because it is a hodgepodge of disjointed words and ideas. It is not easy to decipher the precise meaning without spending a lot of time. A passage from the ‘White Paper’ on page 6 reads:
This brief discussion would make it crystal clear that the doctrine of Khatm-e-Nubuwwat is an integral part of our faith… It is not only based on cogent reasoning but has provided us with a social order and an Islamic culture. (Qadiyaniyyat—Islam kei liye eik Sangin Khatrah [Qadiyaniyyat—A Grave Threat to Islam,] p. 6)
What they mean to say is that this concept of ‘Khatm-e-Nubuwwat’ has provided us with a purpose in life and unanimity and our livelihood is based on it. How can we let go of such a concept?
Further, the ‘White Paper,’ pertaining to the belief of total termination of prophethood states:
…has indisputably been accepted as an integral part of our Faith. Our cultural foundation rests on it.
…This doctrine has served to bring people of different ages, different races, different colours as so many pearls in a string and formed them into a distinct ummah…. It has given an impetus to human intellect in its inquisitiveness and thus laid distinct foundations for a great and singular cultural structure. (Ibid., p. 6–7)
Have you followed their logic? They are trying to say that their concept of Khatm-e-Nubuwwat has brought the Islamic culture into being and has sustained it. What about the 124,000 Prophets gone by? None of them was Khatamun-Nabiyyin yet they had a culture. What was the basis of their culture?
