Pakistan is said to be a
democratic country, the word democracy means to the people and for the people
and by the people. It seems to be that in democracy, people seem to be the real
power. The common seems to be the actual stakeholder, and his point of view is
considered to be extremely important in state affairs. But unfortunately, in
Pakistan, it doesn’t seem so. Pakistan democracy doesn’t have such qualities.
And it is notoriously blessed with oppressing people. Although Pakistan gained
independence in 1947, the people are still socially and culturally slave to
colonial tradition and customs.
VIP culture is among one of them, which mean stopping the traffic, blocking the
roads, and let people stuck in traffic jams until this political leader pass.
Our ruling class has intensively used the option of protocol, never staying away
from it, making the life of citizen extremely difficult and cumbersome.
During their movement, the city, roads, street and even shops are blocked or
closed for an hour. Traffic is paralyzed, and even ambulances are not allowed to
go through due to which citizen dies on the roadside without getting proper
treatment. Even babies are born in auto rickshaws or die as a lack of access to
Many times people have stood up against this VIP culture, including many
celebrities like Dr. Aamir Liaquat, Imran Khan any TV anchors and even the
common citizen of Pakistan, But this aggressive behavior of common citizen
remain valid for few days after which this evil VIP culture is active again.
Recently there is another incident occurred with the renowned TV personnel where
two students were coming in the wrong direction with the POLICE SIREN ON in
their BLACK TINTED private car, on asking they first abused and then tried to
beat the persoonel. And said, “I’m the son of district chairman of Baluchistan,
Do whatever you want.”
Now the time has arrived for us Pakistani to stand united against this Evil
rising trend. And abolish the back backbone of VIP culture so that no common man
should suffer a roadblock, no INFANT SHOULD DIE, No mother should give birth in
Auto rickshaws, and no common man should be beaten and disrespected if he/she
stood against VIP culture.
