#Pakistanis – A lost cause?


For me, Pakistanis were, are, and will always be the main reason for conditions of Pakistan… Not Zardari… Not Nawaz Sharif… Not USA… Not India… Not anyone else!

So after a huge gap from writing… I’m here writing once again … Though I’ve shared my thoughts… views… on twitter a number of times, still it seemed a little less space to say something a little more deep and big and complicated at the same time …

Though I’m a Pakistani, a Muslim and knowing that Islam doesn’t really support the idea of nationalization, still I’m proud to be Pakistani and I feel for it as much as I feel for my family … I may not be among the ones who are out there doing something for it, still I’m among the ones who love it the way it is and hate anyone and everyone who does wrong to it…

Every time I see the stupid choices of people affecting Pakistan in wrong way, I hate them… I hate them so much that I don’t even, any more, feel sorry for their condition…

Don’t we all see, it is US who have destroyed Pakistan, not USA’s drones, not Zardari, not our foreign policies… it is US, Pakistanis who have brought Pakistan to this situation… and even now, it is for some weird unthinkable reason why Allah has still protected this land from being invaded by our enemies…

But what have we done in return?

Pardon me if I quote an event from wrong date or something, as I no longer see the news for it’s same story different version everyday…

So there’s a huge loss of shites in Quetta, and in cruel winter, they keep the dead bodies out and protest … and Shias all over the country become united too, including ones living abroad… And their demands are met…

Shahzeb was killed… he’s son of a DSP, living in Defence area of Karachi… and there are protests… his news is all over the channels, his killer gets arrested from UAE…. and the case is being processed…

Chief Justice is restored thanks to PML-N and the long marchers…

Then, when someone stands up for nothing else but Pakistan, even though I don’t really care about the guy but I do care about the cause, and support fair elections, people turn against him?

Ok… so with all these events… I’ve learned that indeed our people, Pakistanis, are pretty much owner of their future considering that every time they are united for something they got it… but then, how come, the same Shias who could stand up for their loved ones, refuse to stand up for the whole nation at whole?

How come, people who stand up for Shahzeb, refuse to stand up for thousands of innocent people who are killed daily in name of target kililng or other suicide blasts etc?

How come people are ready to go on a long march for CJ but yet not willing to walk all the way for better Pakistan?

Yes… indeed… people are selfish… it’s not that Pakistan can never be a better place, it’s simple that people of Pakistan DON’T want it to be a better place…

We all know, Muslim or not Muslim, that unity is biggest power against the worse evil … yet… we chose to stand alone… or wait for other person to stand up…

We love to talk on talkshows, or twitter, or facebook, and perhaps blogs too… but we don’t really offer a solution… because we don’t really want to leave our lifestyle…

We are willing to stand in lines for CNG but we refuse to stand together for our children’s future…

We wait for a day that will never come because we don’t want it to…

I could go on and on and on, giving numerous day-to-day examples but what for? who for? People aren’t blind for sure, but they just don’t want to see… There is light, there is hope, there is a better future for Pakistan… but we just don’t want there to be a better Pakistan…

My heart bleeds, when I see how people turn their back on from what is right… just because they don’t want to sacrifice…

Yes, sacrifice…that’s what Pakistan needs in order to stand up strong… That’s what any country needs in order to survive… That’s what any revolution demanded… and that’s what it takes to maintain the freedom that we’ve been blessed with…

But then… when this hypocritical Islamic nation who couldn’t stand up for Prophet S.A.W’s blasphemy … who am I to think it will stand for this nation, this wonderful piece of land Allah blessed us with…

Let the cat come and drink the milk for that’s what cat is supposed to do, just because my own people left the milk unprotected, doesn’t mean I should blame the cat!

For me, Pakistanis were, are, and will always be the main reason for conditions of Pakistan… Not Zardari… Not Nawaz Sharif… Not USA… Not India… Not anyone else!

Unless… of course… they choose to wake up and rise and stand united…
