I am Pakistan

Throwing garbage from windows, spitting on roads / buildings, telling lies to each other, pointing fingers on others, etc has become a part of very day life for us now. Pushing each other while getting lined up for namaz, fear of losing slippers while in Masjid, and use religion as shield to hide behind it is the saddest part in our society. Irresponsible driving, crossing roads blindly despite of pedestrian bridges, uneven parking shows the mental level of distressed society.

As humans & Pakistanis we have stop trusting each other, honesty & trustworthiness has been lost in our lives. We forget promises we make & lose loyalty. We are not reliable and ultimately lose credibility between words & actions. Alas being human reputation is at risk then faces criticism all over the world.

It’s really sad to see that if any of the children is scold by teachers; parents dishonor the teachers & that step encourages the child to repeat that act. Sense of pessimistic authority is developed & as time goes by it becomes part of habit resulting in generating irresponsible & rude individuals. Character building starts within the home & it should be parents’ supreme responsibility to teach their children how to respect elders.

Building a civilized society is a collective responsibility of every human being. Parents, teachers & elders should teach children how to treat others better than they treat you. Be open and tolerate differences, deal peacefully with disagreements & anger in good manner. Must treat others the way we want them to treat us.

We are accountable of our actions; if we do good there is no way that will catch a bad return. We have to be fair not with own selves but in general, governments, people ruling the country. Rulers take oath that ‘we will work honestly and sincerely and be remain faithful and loyal to the Government of Pakistan’ But?  Chaos in Pakistani society is just because we within ourselves have lost our integrity, commitments and competency of being loyal & faithful. We aren’t open-minded to others fault be do take advantage to humiliate to least level. We get jealous of others achievements, satisfy ourselves on wrong doings.  

Through this blog, just wanted to send the message to all fellow countrymen, that we can make Pakistan a best society by starting today from ourselves. Being parents we are role models to our coming generations. We can teach our children the importance to being honest, caring & building personal morals.

Generate and sustain trust, demonstrate respect, responsibility, fairness & caring behaviors are the foundation of a decent society. Small things can create miracles, be cooperative, share information, be a good neighbor, protect environment, be a law abiding citizen, exhibit civic duties, forgive others, help the needy, express gratitude are just simple common things which are in Holy Quran & taught by Holy Prophet (PBUH).

Think before act, act with self discipline, and be consistent with decisions made, don’t lie to your people. Because there is a system which is controlled by Allah Almighty, no one and nothing is hidden from Him. On the Day of Judgment everyone is answerable in front of Him. So fulfill your responsibilities, instead of hating each other, give respect, caring, forgiveness & love a room to be accompanying us our lives.

Let’s make ourselves proud, our ancestors proud, our Quaid-e-Azam proud with Allah Almighty’s blessings.  Pakistan Zindabad.
