There are a lot of problems we are facing in Pakistan. When we watch news channels, read newspaper and other international reports all we can see are terrorist attacks, corruption, ethnic and border disputes, floods, illiteracy and other disasters in the country. What is our role in improving the state Pakistan is in?
There is always a positive aspect of a negative one. I believe better days are going to come soon. Pakistan is one of the bravest countries there is. Even after so many hardships our people bounce back and face the next day. We should be proud of that if nothing else. This unrelenting fountain of hope and fight to live for another day is the reason of our existence.
Where there is bloodshed in Lyari every day due to gang wars. Only the bravest souls venture there of their own accord. Despite that the polio workers go there to save the upcoming generation. Every merchant or businessman in Karachi opens his or her shop not knowing what fate may befall them that day. It is this resilience which stops the country’s biggest metropolis from becoming a ghost town.
Our borders along India are in a constant state of flux and danger. Many soldiers of our Pakistan army are killed every day but still they are fighting for us. From the coldest regions of Siachin to the deserts of Sindh, our army guards the borders with no regard to their life. Their contagious patriotism is the reason the Pakistani flag flutters atop our houses on every Independence Day.
The girls in KPK are fighting for their right to study as we speak. Malala yousafzai is a shining example of perseverance on this notion. Now as a Nobel Prize winner she continues her struggle for the education program. Being shot did not derail her from her objective, instead it strengthened it.
Pakistanis always have new hope in their hearts. They never quit and dream that one day there would be a change for better in our country. We shall fight till the end to bring peace in Pakistan. For that instead of complaining about what a poor state of affairs we have been handed, we should plan on how we could remove our ethnic and cultural differences and strive for the improved tomorrow. Pakistan Zindabad.
