Pakistan, the land of pure, the
land of Muslims, taken in the name of Islam and Allah………if we honestly analyze,
any of the Islamic values can be seen or observed here? That is why we do not
find it an ideal state to flourish.
In my point of view, if you ask that how Pakistan should be, I will bluntly say
“as Quaid tried to make and as Iqbal visualized.” Actually and factually,
Pakistan was taken on the basis of two nation theory. Hindus and Muslims, being
two nations, should get separated to live freely but after more than sixty
years, as the time going ahead; it is hard to find the difference between two
nation’s living style now. We being Muslims do not follow the teachings of
Islam, then why did we sacrificed our beloved ones to get an Islamic state.
Pakistanis need to be “Muslims” in its true sense. Till the time we are not
following the Sunnah of our beloved Holy Prophet SAW, we cannot be a true
Pakistani. Love, tolerance, justice, brotherhood, all these traits should be
developed and practiced to make our country an advanced one. I never blamed
government for any haphazard; every Pakistani is responsible for the prosperity
of his land. we are lacking tolerance in our temperament, so our jails are
filling. We do not care for our neighbors and forgive people for little
mistakes, then how can we expect good in return.
If we want a better Pakistan, we have to make ourselves better first. The basic
hurdle in our way to prosperity is corruption. It can be eliminated if we become
fair in our dealings. From lower to higher, all the departments are spoiled with
corruption. A vendor, a shopkeeper, a businessman, government servants, the
religious figures……in short everyone at his level and opportunity should be
honest and fair. This is the first and basic thing every citizen should develop.
Tolerance is the second thing to practice. If someone does bad with us, we must
do good in return. We should increase the level of tolerance in our temperament.
Most of the quarrels and bad relations are only due to impatience and being less
tolerant. A major problem is that we are not united, although everyone among us
know that “ United we stand; Divided we fall” but these lessons are limited to
the books now. We do not bother to practice them.
I want to see my Pakistan a perfect and ideal land to live and that can only be
happened if we deny ourselves in front of a nation. We have to give up
selfishness and care for our country fellows. I want courts practicing justice
and it can be possible if our lawyers are not corrupt. I want Pakistan
beautiful, so I have to clean it till where I can approach. I want to make
myself a true and practical Muslim, so I can make Pakistan a better country to
Let us take an oath on this Independence Day that we have to change ourselves if
we want to bring change. Till the time we are not good, we do not have any right
to expect good anywhere. This country is a gift of Allah for us and we do not
care for His blessing, He might be angry. Let us be true Muslims and true
Long live Pakistan
