What is meant by freedom?  What is meant by Independence? How can one know that he is free? What difficulties did our ancestors undergo for freedom and how they experienced it? Have we ever learnt a lesson from the political and social changes since 70s?
 These questions can be answered when one has freedom in the real sense. Here freedom has never been seen or felt in Pakistan but is heard just in the talks of some people.
Freedom has been systematically denied to us by our own people. And they are busy in misinforming, misguided and dividing people on party basis. The status quo remains the same as people wouldn’t even know meaning of freedom or how and what to do to get it!
Instead of developing  Health Care, anti Poverty strategies, Education, Energy, Employment etc, we all are under tight grip of problems thus devoid of the basic necessities. A compromise is to be made for the betterment of the country. The individuals create something good so that all must enjoy together in the country. It is to be decided that we shall do and everything best possible of that can bring a halt on the uncertainty we are facing now in a free state.
Pakistan has voted for by-elections, elected members must think about from where to start to bring an end to the element of doubt. We must strengthen the political ideology instead of blame game. 
How to start?
We must approach people from time to time on the ground. It would not suggest trying to obtain real state till the force of a nation — people, assets, treaties — were in place.
The doors of elected members for their constituencies must remain open to form a practical strength.
What is being asked about must be responded properly and positively as Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah said:
“We must work our destiny in our own way and present to the world an economic system based on true Islamic concept of equality of manhood and social justice. We will thereby be fulfilling our mission as Muslims and giving to humanity the message of peace which alone can save it and secure the welfare, happiness and prosperity of mankind”. 
 We are still same before it gets to the point where people start rebelling against the government that is overseeing it’s authority of the people like the days gone the British rulers. The words of our fore fathers are that ‘no man or government can make themselves supreme than the available rules. And we shall not be ruled by anyone who would call himself king or sovereign of these lands or people. They are coming close to making the kettle boil over. People get burned that way. We can change it with votes. If we allow the twist to work themselves out the way they are designed to be fully capable of doing, it will end up costing us, and our children, and their children less than trying to navigate the logistics and politics. Obviously politics will ALWAYS find way muck it up and throw bureaucracy into the mix, but take it at its face value; this is something that will help us as Pakistanis and Pakistan.
Pakistan Zindabad.
