Pakistanis for more than seventy years; are waiting for the
creation of a society where they can lead their lives according to the teachings
of Islam. However, the society deteriorated with each passing day and the hopes
of the people for change faded away. The PTI regime gave Pakistanis a hope which
till date has not materialized. The political parties have now gathered for
changing the regime on the plea of inflation and corruption without an
alternative solution due to which an ordinary Pakistani is still expecting from
the PTI regime. Before expecting anything from the government lets analyze the
role of individual citizen in Pakistan.
An individual would have reasons to nepotism, favoritism and corruption.
He would claim to be a pious Muslim with the holy Quran lying covered in dust in
a shelf in his house. He would apply teachings of Islam on everyone except
himself or would practice those giving him material gain. He would steal
electricity and gas. He would not give sadqah, khairat or zakat. Enjoy Umrah and
Hajj as tourist spots, deny inheritance rights to his sisters still would be
standing in the first row of the congregational prayers in the mosque.
A government employee would claim salary to be his basic right without paying
heed to his duties. He would be an example of inefficiency with installed easy
load software. He would profess the religion of bribery and obeying his
political and bureaucratic bosses to every extent. No file would move unless he
is paid for it. The rules of business together with the civil servants act and
efficiency and discipline rules are lying somewhere covered with dust in his
A doctor would claim himself to be an asset for the society but he would not
entertain a patient without fee. He would not bother to get himself involved in
any sort of research for the advancement of science rather relying on the advice
of the medical representatives who pay him for prescribing their medicines. He
would be advising patients in hospitals to visit his private clinic for detailed
check up with accurate prescription. He would be partner with the medical
laboratory and medics.
An engineer after getting employment would unlearn his acquired education and
skills. He would never associate himself with research process rather would be
doing things as recommended by the contractors. He would be paidby the
government for signing papers required for clearing the bills of the contractor
without application of his mind. He would run from pillar to post in Planning
and development and finance departments for clearing escalation of cost and re
appropriation bills of the contractor.
A patwari would be looking for clients ready to bribe him for tampering and for
making wrong entries in the revenue record. He would be least interested in the
collection of agricultural income tax and other duties and taxes. He through his
tehsildar gives two percent of his ill gotten receipts to the administrative
head of the district. He would sponsor the election campaign of the elected
representatives who in return would protect his tenure. The whole system would
turn a deaf ear to any complaint about the system.
A journalist regarded as mirror of the society has lost his role in Pakistan.
They revolve around the office of the district police officer and others who pay
them from their secret funds for projecting their good image in the newspapers.
All the published newspapers are evidence of this breach of trust by the
journalists. They threaten the corrupt for extortion and at higher levels are
paid for the projection of good image of the political parties. In short, the
journalist in Pakistanat the moment are best example of yellow journalism in the
A police officer posted for the purpose of assisting the court in the
dispensation of justice would either accept bribe from the aggressor or the
aggrieved. Investigation is misdirected and leads to acquittal of the accused.
One of the reasons for the rampant increase in crime is the corruption within
the police department which is followed by the prosecution and judiciary.
All the above discussed examples are evidence of the darkest phase of night or
in other words a sign of dawn for Pakistanis.Imran Khan due to number game in
the parliament till date has not been able to act on his promised agenda of
change in Pakistan. This gave a slogan to his political opponents for removing
him from the slot.
The opposition leaders are leaving no stone unturned for toppling the PTI regime
ranging corner meetings, rallies, rhetoric against the defense forces,
allegations against the state etc. all testifying the arrival of hard days for
them in the near future.The main target of the opposition parties is derailing
the system before the upcoming senate election. After which the PTI government
would acquire the numbers in parliament required for necessary amendments in
laws after which he would be able to act decisively on the issues of corruption
and administrative inefficiencies. It is probably the first time in the history
of Pakistan that the military establishment is ready to assist the government in
doing the needful. The arrival of the year 2021 is the year of the creation of
Naya Pakistan where exploitation of Pakistanis in all manifestation would cease.
