It is about time



  • Member Curiosity raised a very important issue in one of his post in another thread. I take the liberty of starting this topic for discussion and post below what member Curiosity said. I have not taken his permission for this but I hope he will overlook this transgression.

    "It is about time they look inward towards the soil from where they originated and make effort to remove the classes of citizenship in Pakistan.

    There are poor who don't have right to either good education or health, only reserved to the elite. There are ethnic and religious groups who have their life at risk on daily basis and fakes accusations are made against them because of blasphemy, etc. There are religious groups who consider themselves above law because of their madressas base. Hate is taught with impunity against groups, while the government throws a blind eye. There are groups who are declared kafir, even though they are Muslims and government is silent about it. Elite in city and landlords in rural areas treat their servants and farmers worse than slaves. Many more ....

    And main thing is that this class system exists in a country that was supposedly made in the name of Islam and the constitution is supposed to be based on Islam. A religion that forbids class system"

    “There are poor who don't have right to either good education or health, only reserved to the elite.”

    They indeed have the right to education and health both but that right is not being delivered by the Government of the day or yesterday. As far as good education or good health service are concerned, like rest of the world, those who can afford to pay the price will have access to such services. Even communism could not treat its followers equally.

    “ There are ethnic and religious groups who have their life at risk on daily basis and fakes accusations are made against them because of blasphemy, etc”

    That is sadly true. The blasphemy laws have been in the statute books for a while but it has become fashionable to invoke such laws at will. In fact, law is not even invoked because if the law was invoked, the accused will have recourse to the courts. Instead, it is just a mob rule and the accused is dead even before tried.

    “There are religious groups who consider themselves above law because of their madressas base. Hate is taught with impunity against groups, while the government throws a blind eye. There are groups who are declared kafir, even though they are Muslims and government is silent about it. Elite in city and landlords in rural areas treat their servants and farmers worse than slaves. Many more ....”

    That too is true and sad indeed. A Government can legislate against “hate” and “fatwaas” but cannot change your mindset. And unless the people themselves do not begin to behave there can be no peace. It is my responsibility to turn away from the hate preaching and not expect someone else to do something about it. And those who do such acts in the name of religion do not understand their religion.

    In conclusion, it is our responsibility as citizens to ensure that we look after and protect others as much as we ourselves want to be looked after and protected. And the answer lies in electing the suitable politicians. We should value our vote and cast it in favour of a candidate who is right for our constituency and not because he/she is a Punjabi, Sindhi, Urdu Speaking or Pushto Speaking.
