Pakistan is a nuclear power but its inhabitants are still living in Middle Ages, whenever I open Urdu newspapers I often find advertisements from magicians, palmists and Quacks in it. Magicians in their news paper advertisements to attract clients mention that their clients can win their stone hearted beloved within no time after getting a written Taveez (piece of written paper covered with cloth or leather), most of these magicians earn good amount of money from their clients as fee for Taveez, women contacts them to keep their husbands in control by Taveez from magician, jobless people contact them for jobs through Taveez, almost every aspect of life in Pakistan is covered by these magicians known as Amil through Taveez.
Recently in Bannu district of NWFP Pakistan one such Amil (magician) Mr. Feroz Ali Shah Karbalai is killed by his client, because his magic Taveez was not giving desired impacts for his client, police has arrested the killer, few months ago, in Kohat district a magician was also killed by his client due to the same reason mentioned above.
Most of the quacks in their news paper advertisements claim that their pills can even make a Eunuch as potent male, and they can provide treatment of all sorts of diseases related to sex organs, and can fertile a barren women through their pills, most of these quacks have offices in substandard hotels, but some of them have opened their clinics in markets of Islamabad, where one can find them treating their European and Pakistani customers.
Impatient, disloyal and greedy offshoot of rich parents kill their parents by the help of quacks whom can provide poisoned medicines for this purpose to them, sources have said that most of the pills given by quacks for sexual stimulation cause harmful affects on kidneys.
Spiritual leaders known as peers do not opt for newspapers advertisements but resolve the problems of the people through different ways, some of them give Taveez, and after reciting some verses blow air from the mouth on their clients, one such divine person Lal Shah Baba was famous among truck drivers, he was wandering on streets in tribal area of Dara Adam Khel and was famous for his miracle through which he was able to fill empty fuel tank of a truck by blowing air from his mouth on the fuel tank.
One another divine figure Baba Dhunka was resolving the problems of his clients by beating them with sticks of three different colors, Baba Dhunka was famous among politicians of Pakistan, because of his miracle sticks bashing which can make a politician prime minister of Pakistan, to reach Baba Dhunka was quite difficult he was sitting in Hazara snow covered hills half naked with his three sticks, sources say he is dead now.
A genuine spiritual leader Peer Ghamkol Shareef of Kohat district of NWFP during his life time was consulted by millions of people every year, after his death every year millions of people from all over Pakistan turn over to his tomb in Kohat to celebrate his Urs (annual anniversary). Pakistan’s top leadership was his Mureed (follower) during his lifetime. Now his son resolves problems of the people through Taveez.
