Assalam o Alaikum! (May you be blessed)
Happy Independence Day, Pakistan. Today is a day about facts. When I started my blog, I didn’t want to tell anyone about my country because it is extremely ill famed. Whenever I tried to search, what other people thought about it, I hardly found anything good. Maybe people don’t know the truth and maybe they don’t even want to. I would have never written it if I would not have read someone’s blog about how much they hated my country. Their Hatred has reached such a level that they wished the country should be wiped out from the world.
You might be familiar with a country named Pakistan bestowed with a lot of natural beauty. Now I will not say that my country is the most beautiful and it is the best. I’ll just talk about facts. People are not wrong when they say that Pakistan is hardly surviving in this world. People do not die of hunger and thirst, yet they live with it. We are facing the threat of running short of water in 2050. We used to read in our books that people of Pakistan are hardworking. Most of them are not. If they were they would have made Pakistan as prosperous as China. The politicians seem to care only about their interests. When I was kid I used to believe that my people are bound by a bond stronger than anything else in the world. But I can see people fighting over cast, creed and race. They even fight with their loved ones about the things they don’t know. Most of them are not ready to accept other’s ideas. And when they don’t find a good natural reason to support theirs, they get angry. People are not patient neither forgiving nor patriotic. People kill people die. So, it does not make sense to let such a country exist, right??? “No! wrong”
Although Pakistan is not prosperous, doesn’t mean it will never be! There used to be many terrorist attacks in Pakistan, but things have improved now due to the operations led by Army. I know you can hardly find any good in Pakistan but, Abdul sitar Edhi was born here, I know that as well. Pakistanis are not hardworking, but yes Pakistan is the first Muslim country to become nuclear power. Arfa kareem, first youngest Microsoft Certified Professional(MCP), is a Pakistani. Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the great founder of Pakistan, who always forced on a complete harmony among all nations. Yes, you cannot ignore him. There are many other who love each other, not caring about the differences of cast, creed and race.
“Darkness cannot be destroyed, it can only be overcome by lighting more candles. You cannot lose hope as long as there is even one candle lit”
Yes, I know its prisons are filled with sinners but Are your country’s prisons empty?? No, they are not. Isn’t there any destitute in your country?? Isn’t there any attack in your country?? Isn’t there any protests or any sit ins?? Are your politicians that sincere?? No, I don’t think so. Every country, every Nation has a dark side, but it doesn’t mean you just Eliminate that country. Why not, for once just once, look at the bright side??? Why not stay positive? Why not encourage the good things rather than pointing the bad??? I guess wrong will be ultimately weakened if we strengthen the right.
I love my country because it is My Country. I own it because it always owns me. 🙂
