The writer of the following article is not from TIP. It’s written by my cousin, Farah Khan, and I found her views very strong and interesting, hence felt the need to share them with you.
Pakistan is a country â€˜under- constructionâ€™ where there are still â€˜Men at workâ€™. But if one has a close look at the problems in which our country is in, it would be more appropriate to say that its a country â€˜under- DESTRUCTIONâ€™, where again there are â€˜Men at workâ€™ â€“ (mind you, this time Iâ€™m talking about most of the people who make promises to serve their country till their last breath!!) and the country cries out â€œWhy me?â€
When Pakistan started its life as a land of Disciplined, Faithful and United citizens., when it had brilliant leaders like Quaid-e-Azam, when there was the reign of God Almighty and the constitution of The Holy Quran, then why did we come to this state of affairs? Actually â€œWell begun is half doneâ€ and this seems exactly to be the case of our country – It was â€˜Well begunâ€™ and it really is â€˜Half doneâ€™ and it seems , sadly though, that it will always remain that way – half way through!. The fact is that Pakistani nation proceeds as a reversible reaction – going forwards and backwards at exactly the same rate. If a new plaza is built at one place, another is destroyed by suicide bombers. If ten student leave professional colleges to serve people, a hundred are murdered by the unknown. What have the Pakis brought upon themselves? Honestly nobody is to blame but us. Yes, we the very bearers of the green flag and the singer of â€˜Yeh Watan HAMARA haiâ€™ are responsible for all this.
Currently we are in a situation where we ourselves are not sure about a thing. We have no idea where we stand; neither do we know where we are headed. We are just walking with the crowd, doing everything and anything the others provoke us to. Is this how an INDEPENDANT nation progresses? Is this what Iqbal dreamt of??Everyone has something to say about this country, but one of my friend thinks its an excellent suggestion for Pakistan,
â€œJust wipe it off the map and start over againâ€
Any volunteers to hit the reset button?
