صوبائی خود مختاری کا تصور تعلیمات نبوی ﷺ کی روشنی میں
Provincial Autonomy Concept: In the light of the teachings of the Holy Prophet ((صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم
There are basically two fundamental concepts that are at the core of provincial autonomy. First is that the right of governance rests with the natives of the province while the second is that the province has autonomy over the province’s revenue. Both these concepts do not contradict with any rule of Islam. Conclusively, natives of the province have the primary right over the managerial possessions in the province. Mortal wise, they have the potential and aptitude. If the people of the province are having the ability and capability, then allocation of autonomy to members outside the province is against Seerah of the Holy Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم and also against the teachings of pious Caliphs. Also, natives of a province have the primary right over the revenue of the province. If the revenue of the province is in excess and fulfills the needs of the people of province, then shifting of province’s revenue to central government or somewhere else is allowed. Calling or naming provincial autonomy/ sovereignty as “IGNORANTISM PREJUDICE” is against Islamic teachings, against Sunnah of the Holy Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم and reflects unawareness of the teachings of pious Caliphs.
