Attrite Political System

From the last 2 decades Pakistan is being ruled by some numbers of personnel; it would be fair enough to say that few political families are playing 5 years cricket match for credulity of ruling people. And maybe realized in perspective that politics of Pakistan is around so called persons who decide the future of 1.8+ million lives, they appreciate the financial and social benefits which they are no authorized of. Unfortunately the basic role of communal and political workers is missing.

It’s very true to state that “Jageerdaar and Wadairaas” have taken over the politics of Pakistan, and these fundamentals along with false adverts are being obtruded upon the people of Pakistan. There is no proper political training of political worker; hence we are unable to produce genuine front-runners. Today’s political workers do not even know the relation of a leader and destination. They don’t even realize the potential of the vision and goal of a party which have not even given birth to political heredity but have strengthened it; just because the political ruling process stays in the family. And on the other hand the humiliation, insecurity, sacrifice and disparity what a political worker gets. These bare-bones and corrupt individuals with the benefices of this political system fool the common people with religious and social problems, so that a common man or the political worker could not stand up against them. On the other when it comes to the benefits of these feuds, they mob up against the odds despite numerous metamorphoses.

None of any is allowed to disagree with these elements or share their points; one is not allowed to go against the ‘one man show’, hence it is politics within a political system. This mindset has not only taken over the representatives and workers but by 18th Amendment & Article – 63(a) has hijacked the whole parliament. None of any elected member decides within his own conscience but for decision making he has to follow the party policies whether it suits the situation or not. Once elected and in parliament they demoralize the workers, in name of Roti, Kapra, Makan, unreachable education, and impose burden of taxes. Either there is no proper vision of democracy towards political workers, or there is no proper awareness of politics, but follows the Individual blindly.

Gaining votes in elections and achievement of seats in Parliament is not the democracy, political party comes with the socio-problems which their followers unite on, and there they try to resolve issues within limitation or if so needed the voice which has been passed to the parliament through their elected members. Unfortunately political parties in Pakistan have designed the politics of senseless followers, rude slogans & meaningless policies. Followers like to get acknowledged just to seek personal favors or to use their platform for their challengers.

Whenever an individual seam-up with a political party he/she expects warm welcome, but in case he/she must understand the vision and aim of it, must adopt the system which they follow, must realize the teachings and must train themselves within the values and standards. These morals reflect the appearance of political party. They must not seek popularity but productivity. Educated people must join political process; at least they can read and write the laws rather just pasting their thumbs.

As James Freeman Clarke says “A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.”

This simple sentence bifurcates the political system in Pakistan.  In Pakistan we don’t produce leaders regrettably inherited politicians. It’s so unfortunate that these politicians don’t give social, economic or ethical interest for the furtherance of Pakistan.
Educated and trained elements like doctors, engineers, lawyers, teachers and others are the extreme requirement to be promoted in political process. To protect the future of Pakistan and upcoming generations, the ultimate requirement is to harvest productive positive minds. We must give space to these intellectuals, must give fair chance to serve Pakistan. We have to coup out this uncertainty that our beloved country is facing these days. Instead of sitting behind; the “Aam Admi” has to stand up, this silent majority is the extreme power which can change the future of up-coming generations. When we will get our target achieve we will set a new history for all bashers who are today bashing us. Yes, I believe they will praise us tomorrow. Insha'ALLAH. Pakistan Zindabad.
