The best democratic system for our country?
Last night I came across a question posted by one of my friends on his photography page. The question was “what is the best democratic system that suits the people of Pakistan?” Some said the american democratic system and some came up with the indian democracy but
I think Indian democratic system is very much the same to the system in Pakistan. And I really don’t think that American democratic system is workable in Pakistan, as in Pakistan am pretty sure that the conflicts between President and Senate will kind of freeze the whole democratic system as by nature our politicians move slowly unlike the US politicians who keep on moving on. I dont see a flaw in the prevailing system, as I don’t see any flaw in any political system in the world. The only problem is the mentality of the people, they are always the ones who fail the system. Not just in Pakistan but around the world. I mean communism in the book is like the most amazing system, but it crashed. At the moment, democratic or non-democratic, we need a leader or a non-religious kind of messiah who can just correct the people of this country. People need to change the way they think. These people don’t just need know about their problems but also need to know about the solutions.
Just recently US was on the verge of a huge economic recession, it is still going on through a bad time but it wasn’t just Obama who came with a magic spell to correct the mistakes made in the past but the people who voted them stood up to even support him. Many people changed their lifestyles upon his request and that helped them get out of the problem. Our problems are much worst. We are being killed by the hands of both Taliban and US but most of all we are getting killed a slow death by our own hands, and its not even that slow.
There’s a massive population of corrupt people, and each of them has the capability do do much worst than Zardari or any other corrupt politician if they are given a chance. So you adopt any kind of system in this country and it will fail.
So coming back to the same point, it’s about time a leader needs to step up and correct these people. Stand in a public rally and tell them what is there contribution to the problems falling on their heads each and every day. Tell them issues like Afia Siddiqui and Raymond Davis are much smaller than seeing their children and old parents being suffered in unimaginably long hours of loadshedding. And how their own lifestyle is responsible for these long hours of loadshedding. Our people look at a con-artist faking as a beggar in the street and they give him five or ten rupees thinking they have done their good deed, not realizing if they can save a little on their electricity and pay bills regularly, they could save millions of people and most of all their own selves. It always comes back to you in the end.
