Let it be the change we deserve

leave a comment »

Its been 63 days since PTI has started its Azadi March; I really don’t know how its gonna end…I believe no Siyasi Pandit can predict because this is happening for the first time in history of Pakistan.

But all I can say is, let it be the reason of change we deserve. So called politicians should atleast think for Pakistan or Pakistanis for once. Instead of listening to your advisers listen to the people of Pakistan, what we want? what we have been suffering? what we have been looking for?

People have awaken in Pakistan, from elite class to middle class to even taxi drivers. Listen to us for atleast once, lets not make dhandhli in elections. Listen to us, we as citizen of Pakistan might make our country as we want to be.

I have to VOTE!!

with one comment

darn it man!!

I have to vote this time. Situation in Pakistan has really gone out of hand.
for 65 years we as nation has been treated as joke; everyone has considered us stupid and frankly we never disappointed them either.

It silly how a nation which came together after worst bloodshed in history of mankind is being treated yet again like animal; and frankly we are to be blamed. We never realized who we are as nation and what status we have.

We have been developing nation. We are the ones who started with thorn as paper clip and now nuclear power. We are nation of 180million from different cultures and back ground but still love calling themselves Pakistani.


We just need a leader; and WE have to select by ourselves.
WE have to realize what we are as nation and WE are capable of doing
and what our leader should be like

WE know it, I know

We all have to VOTE!!

Mr. Jinnah on the first Anniversary of Pakistan on 14th August, 1948

leave a comment »

Citizens of Pakistan

Today we are celebrating the first anniversary of our freedom. A year ago complete power was transferred to the people of Pakistan, and the Pakistan Government, under the present Constitution as adapted, took over charge of the affairs of the country in its own hands. We have faced the year with courage, determination and imagination, and the record of our achievements has been a wonderful one in warding off the blows of the enemy which have been so often referred to before, especially the pre-planned genocide and pushing on with real constructive work internally. The result of our constructive and ameliorative work has gone far beyond the expectations of our best friends. I congratulate you all–my Ministers under the leadership of the Prime Minister, members of the Constituent Assembly and of the legislatures; officials working in various administrative departments and the members of the Defence Forces for what you have achieved during so short a period, and I thank the people of Pakistan from whom we have received patience and genuine support in every effort that we have made to put forward the program of the first year.

But that is not enough: Remember, that the establishment of Pakistan is a fact of which there is no parallel in the history of the world. It is one of the largest Muslim States in the world, and it is destined to play its magnificent part year after year, as we go on, provided we serve Pakistan honestly, earnestly and selflessly.

I have full faith in my people that they will rise to every occasion worthy of our past Islamic history, glory and traditions.

The story of the millions of refugees who had to flee from their homes across our borders and seek asylum in Pakistan is well known to you all. The tragedy occurred even before our State had had time to settle down. In fact it involved also a large proportion of the people who as Government personnel, were to set up the very machinery of the State. I know that it has not been possible to do all that might have been desired for these homeless and oppressed brethren of ours. There are still many hardships that many of them have to face. But the every fact that a large number of the refugees have already been rehabilitated in their new home, with the prospect of new and a happier life ahead of them, is an achievement of no mean order. But for the spirit of brotherhood shown by the people of Pakistan and the courage with which the people as well as the Government faced the almost overwhelming difficulties created by a catastrophe unparalleled in the history of the world, the entire structure of the State might well have crumbled down.

Disappointed in their efforts by other means to strangle the new State at its very birth, our enemies yet hoped that economic manoeuvres would achieve the object they had at heart. With all the wealth of argument and detail, which malice could invent or ill-will devise, they prophesied that Pakistan would be left bankrupt. And what the fire and sword of the enemy could not achieve, would be brought about by the ruined finances of the State. But these prophets of evil have been thoroughly discredited. Our first budget was a surplus one; there is a favourable balance of trade, and a steady and all-round improvement in the economic field.

One year is a brief period in the history of a State for finally assessing its progress or predicting its future. But the way in which tremendous difficulties have been overcome, and solid progress recorded during the last twelve months, gives a firm basis for optimism. In the administrative field, we had to start from scratch; at the center. And in the West Punjab, at the very inception of our State, we had to face very nearly a breakdown of administrative machinery. But I am glad to say that we have successfully dealt with all threats to our solidarity, and on some major questions of the day, the Pakistan Government has displayed not only its determination but its capacity to deal effectively with the various world problems that have arisen from time to time.

Nature has given you everything: you have got unlimited resources. The foundations of your State have been laid, and it is now for you to build, and build as quickly and as well as you can. So go ahead and I wish you God speed.

Connecting Malala’s incident with Waziristan Operation

leave a comment »

14-year old girl was shot while she was coming back from school is no doubt a very sad incident. Many conspiracy theories are also raising; but it would be really crazy to say that the Malala we know of doesn’t even exist or the girl taken to UK is not really hurt etc. I would say it’s another group of our society who is still not even digest that good brains can take birth in Pakistan. I believe that Malala is a 14-year old young girl with very level intelligence as she has the first hand experience of what she has expressed in her diary

Question is whether there should be military operation as a result of this incident!?

Many opposition parties and religious parties are being blamed for confusing the mango people by making relation of Malala incident with so-called War on Terror. On contrary; I would say government is the one making this relation, looking for reason to continue it’s military operations in Tribal Areas or fulfilling the Do-More policy of Mr. Sam. Here I want to conspire; to some extent it feels like all everyone is involved including our government and international community to take advantage of the life of poor girl for their objectives

Imran Khan yesterday proposed reasonable 3 point Peace Agenda for Tribal Area

  1. Pakistan should come out of US war
  2. Tribesmen should be made friends; & they should mediate dialogue between Militants and Pakistan Government
  3. If some militants do not try work for peace; then do selective military operation against those insurgents

And you know what is the sad; not any single politician or any journalist has even bothered to say some of good words or even bad words about this proposal. They find it more easy to say that “Imran is confused and trying to confuse the people”. Government is actually playing with our minds, brain-washing us and trying to convince us that military operation is revenge to Malala’s incident, remind me same incident of swat where little girl was beaten and military operation in SWAT was given a go from Assembly. Later if you remember Supreme Court declared it a fake incident.

To end I would peace should be given chance. I am convinced to the point that Karzai government backed by US is behind all insurgencies; because they are the one providing insurgents with sophisticated weapons other-wise 5th largest army of the world should have cleansed 100s of militants very easily.

Professionals In Pakistan

with one comment

Situation cannot get worse for professionals in Pakistan; with doctors protesting, engineers and technicians frustrated because of joblessness. And worst of the worst the fake degree holders are in the parliament making laws for us. It’s a shame

Young doctors of Punjab have been protesting for their demands. Their demand list mainly includes improving service structure for them and increasing budget allocation for health sector. I support them; even though I am an engineer but I still support Young doctor’s cause. Coz it saddens me that how educated professionals are being treated in Pakistan.

I feel like they are speaking for me also; coz I do have lot to say related to my profession. If doctor’s profession is for humanitarian cause; then engineering has totally become financial cause, which even becomes worst when there are no jobs. So we as engineer lacks humanity and we don’t get enough paid as well.

Engineering is completely privatized sector; when something is privatised then money is all what matters. You can sell life just for money. When I look back to the subjects I have studied in engineering; I am astonished to see the list of 45 subjects I passed and we are using hardly 1% of it; because when you come to job market you become employers of money hungry corporate world. Here your engineering skills are not mattered; the only thing matters, “Is this guy bringing money for us or not”. If you are; then you are the Hero, in other words how much a**-hole you are.

This frustrates me; when a doctor is called at night for emergency, he/she has a reason because he/she might be going to save someone lives; but when an engineer is called at mid-night; some corporation might be loosing money for not having internet service (solely related to Telecommunication engineers).

For this only Pakistan cannot be blamed; it is like this every where around the world. You must have noticed no where the art subjects are considered first choice or counted as highest merit subjects; engineering on other hand are always the named as the number 1 field of choice by universities; just because to fulfil industrial demands. In order to fulfil industries also agree to give as much as finance you need; but when you are not needed, it’s not hard for them to release you because you are no more financially suitable for them; even though you have served them for decades

But situation worsen in Pakistan when you have increasing load-shedding, industries closing, business reducing, joblessness increasing and doctors protesting. It’s not good news for professionals; doctors and engineers alike, and certainly not for the suffering Mango people.

I know government can’t do much for engineers as it’s a global issue, but they can do for doctors. They can respect there professions; they should realize the people you consider “maseeha” also need to live normal life. Don’t you think people who are there and give their whole life to help the sick, deserve much more than they have right now. At least they deserve much more than fake degree holders sitting in the parliament.

It’s a mess; I hope something good come out this. Government should consider that these Young Doctors are present and the future; they deserve respect; not jails.

“Pakistan can never be undone” – Father of Nation Jinnah

with 6 comments

“What we want is not talk about Bengali, Punjabi and Sindhi … yes! They are units; they are provinces … pathan … yes! But I ask you; have you forgotten the lesson that Islam taught us 13 centuries ago … and I think you will agree with me that whatever else you may be or whatever you are … you are Muslim. That you have now carved out a territory … vast territory, it is all yours … it doesn’t belong to a Bengali or a Punjabi or a Sindhi … its all yours. You have got your central govt where every unit and every provicen is represented. Therefore if you want to build up yourself into a nation and get rid of this poison; for God’s sake give up this provincialism. You are only voicing my sentiments and sentiments of millions of Mussalams when you say that Pakistan should be made on pure foundation of social justice and Islamic socialism, not other isms!

Brotherhood, equality, fraternity of man these are all basic point of our religion, culture and civilization. And we fought for Pakistan because there was danger of denial of these human rights in sub-continent. After all the story of Pakistan and its struggle and its achievements is the very story of great human ideal, struggling to service in the face of great odds and difficulties.

Let us now plan to build and reconstruct and regenerate our great nation. Now it is time, chance and opportunity for every Musalman to make his or her fullest and best contribution and make the greatest sacrifice and work ceaselessly and selflessly in the service of our nation and make Pakistan one of the greatest nations of the world. Pakistan is now fait accompli and it can never be undone”

Imran Khan: The Influential Hero of Pakistani Youth

with 14 comments

“Imran Khan is indisputably the greatest cricketer to emerge from Pakistan … He took a mediocre side and transformed them into world-beaters, leading them to the World Cup title in 1992” ESPN Cricinfo

Imran Khan was born in Lahore, Pakistan, and educated there, where he proved to be a fine cricketer and made his first-class test debut for Lahore at the age of sixteen. Imran was selected for the Pakistan cricket team in 1970, where he soon made a permanent place for himself. During the Seventies, Imran became a world-class all-rounder and was rewarded with the captaincy of the Pakistani cricket team in 1981. He was declared international cricketer of the year in 1989-90 and led Pakistan to numerous victories all over the world. Imran Khan once said to his team before playing the match, “I would like my team to play like a cornered tiger, when it is at its most dangerous”. And Pakistan did play like one and brought back 1992 Cricket World Cup with pride.

In his world cup winning speech he said, “I am proud that in the twilight of my career I finally managed to win a World Cup” & “Winning this world cup I am sure will go a long way in helping complete one of my obsessions which is to build a cancer hospital”

This is then what he did; in order to fulfil his obsession he went out to every street, every corner, every college and school; not only of Pakistan but around the world. I still remember Imran Khan came to my school and kids were lined to shake hand with him. At last in on 29 December 1994, just within 2 years of historic win he was able to cut the read ribbon of “Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre” named after his deceased mother who died of cancer. From cricketing hero, Imran Khan has turned into most loved social worker.

But this was not the end of his achievements; this was not enough to fulfil his dream of successful and Prosperous Pakistan. During this struggle he joined the feild of politics and started Movement of Justice, famously known as “Tahreek-e-Insaaf”. His struggle for justice came to lime light when he with his party marched on street of Pakistan for freedom of Justice; and was eventually successful in 2007.

His political business didn’t hinder with his obsession of social working; and he put another marvel by the name of “Namal College” in remote area of Mianwali in Pakistan. Thus providing highest standards of education to needy without greed.

In 1992, Khan was given Pakistan’s civil award, the “Hilal-i-Imtiaz”. He had received the “President’s Pride of Performance Award” in 1983. Khan is featured in the University of Oxford’s Hall of Fame and has been an honorary fellow of Oxford’s Keble College. On 7 December 2005, Khan was appointed the fifth Chancellor of the University of Bradford, where he is also a patron of the Born in Bradford research project.

In 1976 as well as 1980, he was awarded The Cricket Society Wetherall Award for being the leading all-rounder in English first-class cricket. He was also named Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1983, Sussex Cricket Society Player of the Year in 1985, and the Indian Cricket Cricketer of the Year in 1990. Khan is currently placed at Number 8 on the all-time list of the ESPN Legends of Cricket. On 5 July 2008, he was one of several veteran Asian cricketers presented special silver jubilee awards at the inaugural Asian cricket Council (ACC) award ceremony in Karachi.

On 8 July 2004, Khan was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2004 Asian Jewel Awards in London, for acting as a figurehead for many international charities and working passionately and extensively in fund-raising activities. On 13 December 2007, Khan received the Humanitarian Award at the Asian Sports Awards in Kuala Lumpur for his efforts in setting up the first cancer hospital in Pakistan.. In 2009, at International Cricket Council’s centennial year celebration, Khan was one of fifty-five cricketers inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame.

He has also authored many books, namely Imran Khan’s cricket skill, Imran: The autobiography of Imran Khan, Indus Journey: A Personal View of Pakistan, All Round View and Warrior Race: A Journey through the Land of the Tribal Pathans.

Due to all of his dreams, achievements and on going struggles; the youth of Pakistan consider Imran Khan as their mentor, leader and the biggest HERO.
