With a daily dose of hypocrisy at the highest level , I plead my case in front of God of those 24 soldiers that were mercilessly killed by the Americans on a dark night and we surrendered sovereignty again like we had been doing for the past 10 years. Pakistan has gone through turmoil torture pain and yet still somehow it stands on its one wounded leg. With crippling economy, lack of respect in the world, the last thing this nation needs is a weak president.
Don’t get me started on the illness of Zardari , but yet somehow , someway he has kept this country together , which is a big accomplishment for that chocolate hero. But now his illness has tormented him so much that with memo gate scandal, and nato strikes looming, the binding factor of this nation is abroad for some treatment that we are un notified of . Doesn’t the common man deserve to know where his hard earned tax payers money is spent or just an illusion of democracy along with the empty promises will suffice for these half hungry individuals.
For those disillusioned politicians, who can’t see their end , let me notify , it’s not 1998 , its 2011 . Things have changed, and I guess their slow grasping of this reality will do justice with them coming elections. The common man of Pakistan is frustrated and looking for an outlet to vent out his frustration, with no work or job in sight, the empty mind of the common man is a plotting agent against these promise neglecting politicians. Things have changed and Imran’s rise to political stardom is an indication of that. This nation desperately needs change, politicians who actually get treated in Pakistani soil.
I won’t start blabbing on and on about the greatness of Imran khan , much is said and written , the only thing I will appreciate is the fact Imran has always represented national interests rather than provincial or sectional interests. Never have I seen Imran talking about the greatness of him being a pathan and never have I seen him pleading to Punjabi greatness. Never have I seen him instigating hatred in Muhajirs and Sindhis about the unjust Punjab etc. Imran is much bigger than all that and that is the sole reason he should be in power.
Pakistan is not Punjab , Baluchistan , KPK ,Sindh etc , Pakistan is Just Pakistan from the peaks of K2 to seaview tucked at the end of Karachi . Pakistan is not about provinces and never was provincial autonomy a case for Jinnah or Iqbal . Provincial Autonomy and Provincial promotion is a way utilized by major political parties to strengthen their constituencies unfortunately at the expense of Pakistan.
I quote Jinnah , cause frankly my word doesn’t matter :
Yet this is a truth people so easily seem to forget and begin to prize local, sectional or provincial interests above and regardless of the national interests. It naturally pains me to find the curse of provincialism holding sway over any section of Pakistan. Pakistan must be rid of this evil.
Imran is a solution for Pakistan rather than Punjab, Sindh Kpk or Baluchistan. Its time we all vote for Pakistan.
