In this beautiful world, human beings are the most beautiful
creation of Allah and in this great wide world all men and women have some
authority according to their roles, responsibilities, psychology or mindset. As
we know that great power comes with greater responsibility so, all the
individuals who have power and authority are bound to play their roles and
responsibilities ethically but in our world, most of the sectors and individuals
abuse or misuse their authority.
The rate of abusing of authority is increasing day by day in all sectors of the
worldand this is creating further problems in the workplace such as stress.
Mostly higher class people misused the power of their authority, they just
wanted to show their powers not the magical powers like superheroes but they
just showoff that how much powerful they are than others, what they can do while
sitting in their rooms just by giving order to our lowest class people. They
just treated the lower class like a slave. They usually target those who are
weak enough to fear that if they don’t join in, they will be the next victims,
and they force them to do what they are saying otherwise they have to sacrifice
the thing closest to their hearts.
According to a VitalSmarts study on workplace bullying, 96% of employees say
we’ve experienced it, and 54% of bullies have been at it for years. If you are
part of that 96%, you know it hurts, it harms, and it leaves a permanent
impression in a person mind and everyone knows that the wounds not always
heal.Abusive people gain and maintain power over their victim with controlling
or coercive behavior, and proceed to subject that person to psychological,
physical, sexual or financial abuse. As we have seen from the media coverage of
high-profile cases, abuse can go on for years, often ignored, and worse
encouraged by those who surround the abuser. Inaction to stop abuse is a form of
In educational sectors the rate of abusing of power is increasing the
individuals who have power are doing favoritism, abusing and harassing the
students. Here’s the recent example of the most reputable university which is
present in Karachi, Pakistan is involving in harassing the female students done
by their management. Not only in educational sector, there are so many sectors
where the individuals are not using their power properly or misuse their powers
like in offices, firms, society, governmental sectors etc.
As you can see or heard that there are so many universities who are taking a
heavy amount of fees from their students but they does not provide facilities to
their students properly and same situation goes in firms that the management is
taking too much work from their employees and didn’t give salaries according
their work and expectations.
Police officers or any other powerful authority abuse the power that they have.
Police brutality occurs when an officer uses “extreme physical force, verbal
attacks, and threats” against a person without a fair reason for doing so.
Adolf Hitler is known to be one of the “greatest” leaders in history who had
abused his powers and had shattered his country apart. Hitler abused his powers
because of his greedy ego and because of his narcissism. It all became with
Hitler organizing a party called the National Socialist, most popularly known as
the Nazi Party. The rise of the Nazi Party was the thing that led to the start
of Hitler’s rein and his abuse of power. The Nazi Party eventually led Adolf
Hitler to come to rule and had given Hitler the chance to take control the
entire nation. Surprisingly, Hitler came to power legally through the success of
his book Mein Kempt (My Struggle) which he wrote in prison.
According to a study carried out in 2009 by Human Rights Watch, it is estimated
that between 20 and 30 percent of women in Pakistan have suffered some form of
abuse. An estimated 5000 women are killed per year from domestic violence, with
thousands of others maimed or disabled. Women have reported attacks ranging from
physical to psychological and sexual abuse from intimate partners. Many people
died because of raising voice for their justice.
Like Hitler there are so many people who misuse their power but in this world
there are also many examples of those legendries thatuse their powers ethically
and make this world a better place.
Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah is the best example, who gives independence to
the Muslims by using their power in a right manner.The government of China is
using their power ethically or in a right manner and make their country number 1
through legal and technological advancement and give facilities to their
residents to start their businesses at home.
As if China can make their economy so good by using powers and authority
ethically so why can’t Pakistan do that. Why Pakistan is ranked as the third
most dangerous country in the world just because of those unethical people or
abusers they whole economy of Pakistan is suffering. People were afraid to raise
voice for the injustice occurs to them but now the present government of
Pakistan is also understanding their responsibilities and using their powers
ethically and takes initiatives to make Pakistan and its currency better.
