On 23 March, 1940 the Muslim minority of Indo-Pak passed a resolution. The Muslims of subcontinent were having the hard time in getting the respect and rights they deserved from the ruling British and the Hindus of subcontinent who were in majority. Hindus and Muslims had so much social,cultural and religious differences, plus based on previous experiences, the Muslims of subcontinent region thought that after India will be free from the British rule, Muslim minority will be deprived from their rights and freedom, so they need to have a separate country in the areas where Muslims are in total majority. After all how could Muslims who eat the Cow’s flesh and Hindus who worship the Cow could have co-existed.
The Lahore Resolution, later called Pakistan resolution stated that Muslim minority of Indo-Pak can no more co-exist with Hindu majority of the region, so they need their own country in areas of Muslim majority where they could live freely and practice their religious beliefs freely. Even Hindus and other minorities will be allowed to stay and practice their own religious beliefs on condition that they don’t interfere with Muslims business and follow the rules.
Fast forwarding to 14 August 1947 after struggle of Muslims in true and great leadership of Muhammad Ali Jinnah the Muslims of subcontinent got what they always wanted and deserved. A separate free country which was called Pakistan.
Now after exact 72 years of passing the Pakistan resolution – as they are celebrating the 72nd birth day of epic Pakistan resolutions – they also are having some hard time and difficulties.
We Pakistanis are facing problems like bad law and order situation in some parts of country, load shedding, Natural Gas Shortages, Down turn of economy, lack of health and education facilities in remote areas or even some developed cities. Biggest problem is corruption from top to the bottom.
I am reminding these because the cause of all this insanity/irony we are facing are the few people who are ruling us today. People who are corrupt, sitting in assemblies and important seats. Normal public/people of Pakistan are hardworking and talented but due to these few ruling politicians who are filling their bank accounts with our tax money we are in trouble.
But this is trouble we have bring upon ourselves by either voting the wrong people in or not voting at all in last elections. So for change lets think in detail who did what for country and vote for people who deserve our vote in next elections. And while thinking if you don’t see anyone worth of your vote, just vote some new faces in, that way you will not have to lose anything if it doesn’t work but if it worked out well, you will have things going in right direction for you and your country. Plus please get out of the politics of family or party, don’t vote XYZ because your brother voted him. Think in detail who will be better for your country, you and your children while voting.
We all need to think and do things positively, first by self assessment and correcting your own self and then point everything out which is bad deed and going on in your area or a place of your access. On 23 March 2012 the Pakistan Day lets promise ourselves that everything we will do from now on will be in interest of our beloved Pakistan and in turn will be interest of us.
The question I will ask myself on this Pakistan day, Why these few hundred politicians are able snatch all of our money and facilities we deserve, away from us, the 180 million population of Pakistan. These 180 million people have to put the country back to the track of progress, not those few corrupt blood sucking politicians.
Give your country and your people what they deserve, because this country have given you more than you deserve. Time to demand and grab the more deserve. Long Live Pakistan.
