Pakistan and Democracy: Not a perfect match

16 Nov

People say that democracy is the solution to all of the Pakistan’s problems. I disagree. Why? Because democracy has never worked for us. It has failed so often, that it’s rather stupid to support this system. We can’t go on like this, supporting the people whom we know will never give this country what it has been asking for since 1947. Pakistan would have been a totally different country today, had there been no racism and corruption. Thoughts like these make me give up my hopes for this country’s long-term stability, because today, all the good people have been taken over by the corrupt ones.

The truth is that we have abused the word ‘democracy’ so much, that we have totally changed it from what it was meant to be. I don’t wanna be fooled by any party’s campaign anymore. I know that people take part in elections just for a “seat” that will earn them millions (if not billions) of rupees (if not dollars) of cash. But the public gets fooled every time. It really doesn’t matter who do you vote for, because everything’s gonna be the same again when your favorite candidate wins a seat in the National Assembly or a Provincial Assembly. When a politician gets a seat, he/she does not remember his/her promises that he/she made to the general public anymore.

You certainly don’t wanna be fooled anymore. You know pretty well that all the people sitting in the Opposition are the same ones who once ruled this country, and made their contribution towards making Pakistan a more corrupt country, and those who haven’t succeeded in getting the majority of the votes yet, have made their contribution too, by spreading violence across our streets; streets that do not belong to them; streets that belong to us, the “awaam”.

So, to sum it up, democracy in Pakistan only means freedom to violently protest, and freedom to be corrupt. There’s nothing positive I see so far in this democracy.

I love Pakistan. And if I ever think of doing any damage to it, then I do not deserve to live here. And all the people, who are damaging the (already messed up) image of this country, are not Pakistanis to me, and they deserve to be drowned in the Arabian Sea. If you think that you are doing something that will do no good to this country, I beg you, to stop, before it’s too late.

Pakistan? Isn’t it a freakin’ desert?

12 Nov

Yeah right! And USA is a freakin’ ocean.

Seriously, I’m sick of people on the internet talking of their ideas about Pakistan. They think that it’s a freakin’ desert where women don’t go out of their houses and men wander like retards. I blame the media for portraying such a bad image of our country. While, I do not disagree that Pakistan is immensely messed up, but let me make it clear that I’m not posting this blog from a (freakin’) desert.

Now, some fools will say, “prove it!”

Here is the (freakin’) proof:

Wall-chalking: Messing up Pakistan since 1000 B.C.

10 Nov

Alright, ignore that “1000 B.C.” part in the title. I just wanted to make the title sound cool. 😀

So I was talking about the “art” of wall-chalking in Pakistan. (Again, ignore the word “art”.) When in Pakistan, you have absolutely nothing to talk about except the politics and inflation (and PCB), except a few good things like Aisam-ul-Haq. But what really dominates our discussions most of the time is politics. This country is so much politically unstable that politics has its influence over almost everything you can imagine. Even right now, my dad is watching a TV show about politics.

Wall-chalking is nothing new to us, Pakistanis. It’s impossible that you drive your car for 5 minutes and do not notice any writing on the walls. Almost all of it is politics-related. The jerks don’t leave any wall unaffected. And believe me, the government doesn’t give a flying fuck about what is written on the walls. Wall-chalking has zero potential to bring a political change, but the jerks just don’t understand and keep messing up the cities.

Here’s a few examples of wall-chalking (for teh lulz!):

Wait, what? Are you sure you’re clean?

While I agree that our government is doing an extremely unsatisfying job handling this country, but we are not helping either. Everyday I hear people talking about how crappy the government is, and they blame it for everything that is wrong with this unfortunate country. These people really piss me off, because they’re the same people who did not vote in the 2008 elections. And when you do not vote, you have no f***ing right to criticize the government. At least that’s what I believe.

And the ones who did vote, who used to shout “Jiye Bhutto!” out in the streets, are also doing the same as the people who did not vote, i.e., whine how bad the government is, when in fact, they’re again going to vote for PPP in 2013, I bet.

Then, there are the people whom I hate the most. They are highly involved in this power-theft thing. They get their children A grades in exams by bribing the BISE officials. They break the traffic laws. In short, they break every single law that they can. We call this country, Islamic Republic of Pakistan. I’m afraid to admit that most of the people are in no way Islamic. We go against everything that Islam teaches us, knowing that we are wrong, but the excuse that we make is, “Har koi karta hai, to hum kyun na karen?” (When everyone’s an asshole, why not me?)

I’m proud to say that we have a few Hindus in our country, who are the most honest citizens as far as I know. They are much better than us, Muslims. We ought to learn things from them. We ought to follow the things that Islam teaches us. Islam never taught us to be dishonest and corrupt. Let us clean ourselves before criticizing the government.

(Our government sucks by the way.) 😉
