Question No. 2.

 

English Precis:

Title: Works and Contribution of Nazir Hussain 

Precis:

Nazir Hassan, a Palestinian filmmaker, produced two documentaries about Israeli occupation of his homeland. In the documentary, “Independence,” he brought out the irony in Israeli celebration of freedom after they displaced the indigenous population. His second documentary, “My Grandfather’s Path,” is a long but excellent narrative that pays homage to the Palestinians’ struggle. The epic highlights the needs for the oppressed not to become dehumanized like their oppressors. The avenues of film, art and literature can save the persecuted peoples form destructive resentments.

Question No. 3.

 

Comprehension:

1) The need for waging pre-emptive wars is the neo-imperial American doctrine that only considers the country’s perceived interests. Whenever US deems its national security at risk, it denies any room for counselling as it resorts to aggression and kinetic force.

2. As pacifists argue, there is no moral justification for war. However, neoconservative talk-show host, Bill O’Reilly drew on the fallacy of moral equivalence to push for the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. The way he argued for war, among others, manifested the logic of a hyperpower.

3. The countries occupied by hyperpower have no peace because the invading forces do not make substantive space to nurture institutional democracy. In Afghanistan, for example, the Taliban regime was replaced with the warlords who failed to democratize the country, plunging it into a renewed chaos.

4. The US invasion of Iraq in 2003 demonstrated that some European countries, at least, did not agree with the manifestation of American hyperpower in pre-emptive use of force against Iraq. One of those EU countries, France, did not see the invasion as just war.

5. Tony Blair, as Prime Minister, expressed the need for restraining American’s hyperpower – through wise counsel. This policy, however, did not work and the events took ironic turn as Britain participated in the invasion of Iraq.

Question No. 7.

 

Translation:

Both Sir Syed Ahmed Khan and his distinguished as well as enlightened son Syed Mehmood treated the British as their equals and of equal stature.  This is contrary to the subservient and obedient behavior – in line with pro-imperialist designs – promoted by the British Raj that had widespread following in the sub-continent. The incident of Agra Durbar in 1867 was well known to the whole Indian nation, and not just the Muslim India. Syed Ahmed Khan had stayed away from the Court because the Indians had been given seats inferior to the British officials. A medal was to be conferred upon Syed Ahmed Khan at the Durbar. Williams, Commissioner of Meerut, was later asked to present the medal to Syed Ahmed Khan at Aligarh railway station.
