This would not be wrong to say that Muslim Countries are in worst situation ever, and few of the toppers these days are Syria, Pakistan, Iran, Libya and Egypt. Well this was something about the recent political activities and riots happening in the Islamic world. But isn’t that surprisingly weird that all of these countries belong to the Muslim/ Islamic world!!!
On the other hand when it comes to Islam, undoubtedly Pakistan is the country that is on top of the list. With no authentic reasons Pakistan is considered the Islamic State, in fact the top of the Islamic Countries because it is nuclear weapon state, million of mullahs belongs to this particular country, Osama bin laden was caught in Abbottabad (a city in Pakistan), assassination of Saalman Taseer (blasphemy law), the period of Zia ul Haq and so much more that the list would not even come to a real end un-till we make it end. This is not just about the recent scenario of the particular country but is has been the history of Pakistan.
Cutting the story short and coming to the original discussion, there are times when we have comments such as Western countries have lost their culture, western people drink too much, clubbing, women rights and freedom and when such when such struggles happens in Pakistan, one things happens for sure – Mullahs Protests and Rallies. There is not a single issue in Pakistan but in fact trillion of issues. Issues for having liberty, issues between poor and rich (poor wants to kill elite and elite does not want to see poor), women liberation and rights issues, Islamic/ Shariat law issues, domestic violence problems, cultural issues, religious issues, discrimination, economical instability and educational syllabus issues and most of all the popular game of politics. This is only game in Pakistan everyone want to be a part of, whether its a child or a senior citizen of the nation. Haven’t we noticed, that politics is in every house. We have politics in our blood and this is the reason that these days every Pakistani residing in the country is striving for ones own benefits. It is the Politics which has been taught to a child in early days of childhood that how to compete with your friends and cousins, how to show yourself superior and how to prove your self elite. Being elite has become dream for everyone, even for elites as well.
On the other hand there are two major groups in Pakistan i.e. Cultural and Religious. The reason that the recent situation in Pakistan is not coming to an end is because people have not realised the problem yet. Two major groups are residing in the country, first group is the one who wants to promote culture and culture in Pakistan is undoubtedly similar to the one that is in India (closer to Hinduism) because both of these countries are not less than twin sisters. Second group is the one who wants to promote Islam and they want to stick to what ever is in Shariat. When one group wants to take initiative for their interests other group condemns, protest and vice versa. Similarly the “Religion Islam” is no more a religion but has become “Political Islam”. It was once a guide on how to lead life but now it has become more Political in nature.
To blame west is absolutely wrong because when people are not united inside the country it is not reasonable to blame someone who is not even the part of the country. When it comes to west they have their own liberties and rights and they stick to them. They are not in the state of war between culture and religion. It is not to favour them but at least we should realise our weaknesses. West should not be blamed because they are better than us in many fields such as medicine, IT, Science, Inventions, technology, education and gazillion of other things. In fact Pakistanis are the one who are mostly involved and reported for criminal cases and domestic violence cases in UK. Is it good things or shameful for us? I guess most of us think it is good!! well that is the problem that bad things are considered good in PK, and lots of people would like to agree on this statement!
Secondly, Pakistanis consider themselves as MUSLIMS but have a look…do they pray?? ok no problem next question..do they even respect women??? well they do stare at them as much as they want to….!!! dont they????? this is something that will never come to an end so better leave it for next time……..The reality is Islam is much stronger in UK than in PK.
The bottom line is that Pakistanis must realise that this is the time to stand up and have courage. Stop worshipping and following political parties since they are capable of nothing. One has to stand up for oneself and be a change what you want to see in the world (Ghandhi). One must realise that there is no one and there would be no one to help us out and Allah help those who help themselves. Stop being selfish and stop ruining your own country. Improve yourself and ultimately you will improve your own country.
