Is this what you think it is?

Not just this but everything that you know in life. When you try to explain something; that is only an explanation from your own perspective. 

In reality, even the wisest of men couldn’t explain, what we call, the simplest realities in life. The beauty we found in their words, which does not really mean they were right.

My reply to Raza Rumi’s article in Express Tribune

Raza Rumi’s article: http://tribune.com.pk/story/211054/the-charge-of-the-secular-brigade/#comments

Very nicely written and I completely agree with you. I think, whether it is a liberal or a conservative, both should be concerned with the well being of our people and country. The problem with our liberals is that some of them give the impression of plane rebels against society and country. It’s good to be a rebel in so many ways, but I think even a liberal has to draw a line somewhere. When there is no line, then each liberal start labeling the other as conservative, because there is always one person more liberal than the other.
I have friends in US and the majority of them believe that killing innocent people, by the name of collateral damage, in drone attacks is wrong and it should be stopped. But I have heard many of our liberals saying it’s not such a big deal, and there are more important issues to be addressed than this. Clearly these liberals have no feelings for the people living in the mountains and think of them as animals. I see NFP making fun of Imran Khan most of the time for his stance on Drone attacks in our tribal areas. I am not a fan of Imran Khan either and I don’t really like how he sounds like an extension of Jumaat-i-Islami some time, but when he talks against Drone attacks I think we should at least admire him for that. I don’t understand how can a Pakistani liberal think like a US conservative.
A liberal should be a reformer, he should not just sound like a US a** kisser but someone who can change the people. This he can only do by coming close to the people and addressing them with respect. Gandhi was a true liberal, he was a true reformer. Jinnah was a liberal, he stood up for those who could not stand for themselves. Our so-called liberal would say F Islam and Pakistan, and this way they try to sound cool, so how can you expect them to do any good for the society and country. I, myself believe that Pakistan should become a secular state, and in my capacity I express my opinion through whatever way possible. I think that the reason our people are suffering is because of their own faults, but to bring a positive change in the society, you shouldnt just try to sound cool and think your job is done.




چلے ڈھونڈنے کو۔۔۔

چلے ڈھونڈنے کو

مگر یہ بھی سن لو

کہ تم چلتے چلتے

وہیں پر رکوگے

جہاں اب کھڑے ھو

وھی کانٹے رستے میں تم کو ملیں گے

جو پہلے ملے تھے

کسی کو اٹھاے ھوے ہاتھوں میں تم

یہاں تک توآے

مگر دیکھ لو اب

ہی باہیں ہیں خالی

یہ ویران باہیں

تمہیں کہ رھی ہیں

"نہ ڈھونڈو کسی کو"

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.
