    Islamic Republic of Pakistan, a country of 170 million people, full of natural resources and more than 60 years of independence but still not respected in the world community. In less than 30 years of independence, it’s one wing gets separated (Bangladesh). Remaining part till today is living on IMF, World Bank and foreign donations. Majority of the population is living in rural areas without basic necessities of life. It is a country where financial gap between rich and poor is widening day by day. From the last 10 years, extremism is increasing. What ever happens in the world it is almost understood even before investigations that it will have a link with Pakistan. Almost every kind of problem exists in Pakistan, including electricity load-shedding, bad economy, less educational facilities, less hospitals, inflation and no pure water in many parts. These problems exist in Pakistan right from its independence which as mentioned above was more than sixty years ago. Thus in these 60 years, why our beloved country is not among developed nations even with so many natural resources? Like China, it got independence after us and is now a super power in the world. Like Japan whose major cities were bombed to ashes and has no natural resources but still today they are world economic power. If one would think about the reasons for the problems which Pakistan is facing today, there are numerous. But above all is one. i.e., politicians. “Do our politicians represent our people”? In a democratic system, the elected people should represent the nation so that nation should have faith on their decision. They should think for the betterment of their people and country. In case of Pakistan, look at our politicians. Majority of them are only interested in securing their seat in national assembly through any means. Many of them have criminal cases on them. And above all, there are people who cheated constitution of Pakistan but still are part of parliament. It looks like the more corrupt you are, the more you will have chances of being a parliamentarian.After looking at these personalities, can one say that Pakistani politicians represents majority of Pakistani nation? Answer is NO. These elected people are from elite class. None of them is from a mediocre or poor family. None of them knows that what the feelings of a father or mother are when their children gets kicked out of the school because of not paying fees. None of them knows that how it feels when you are hungry and do not have money to feed you children. No one of them knows how it feels when parents bring their children on road for SALE because of poverty. None of them knows when a son, daughter, father or mother is dying and family members have no money to bring them to hospital.On the other hand, each and every one of the above mentioned people in the politician list and including many other parliamentarians have millions of rupees. There are many who are in the top 10 list of richest people of Pakistan. So how could they know the problems of a common person? All of them are busy in increasing their own assets.Pakistan can never make progress unless these people OR their family members are ruling. Leaders should represent the people. Look at the example of Hazrat Umar RA. Is our PM or president more capable or honorable than him? Are they ruling like him by providing justice to each and every one? He ruled the whole Muslim ummah but traveled on foot with his servant. Can we expect from the today’s politicians of Pakistan that they will not rest until every child in Pakistan will get education, every common person will get health facilities and every person will have a job? Answer is simple. NO we can not trust them for this.Now question is how we can solve problems of Pakistan. Answer is EDUCATION and JUSTICE. We need to change our educational system. A system which is based on MEMORISING can never give us desired outcomes. We need a system which will give education with understanding, wisdom and ability to think. When we will be able to think beyond our emotional attachments based on our education, only then we can chose good leaders. Education will give us opportunity to think about the betterment of our country by thinking beyond emotional attachment to our politicians, political parties, provinces and personal benefits.Justice is another key thing for any society. A society where leaders know that they can manipulate system according to their own benefits can not survive. That is evident from our own country. Look at the condition, only common people are accountable to law, not our politicians. A parliamentarian resigned because of a fake degree and now he is laughing at our nation and judiciary because no one punished him and he is again in parliament. Similarly, look at our government, Supreme Court asked government to write to Swiss government to open cases against Mr. Zardari and how bluntly government is saying we will not do so. Now suppose that these two charges (corruption cases and fake degree) were being faced by a common person. Don’t you think that person would have been behind the bars? YES. So, we have to make every one accountable to LAW and for that judiciary have to play a vital role.
