Yesterday, i watched a theater at Alhamra Art Council Lahore with a name of 14.25 August of Pakistan (Akhuat). Drama theater started from the dialogue between the characters of Kuli & sweeper (David Fernandaz) at Railway station. The train didn’t had engine which was at the workshop and passengers were awaiting for her departure. Suddenly character’s with a name of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto (Former Prime Minister of Pakistan) and General Zia ul Haq (Former Dictator/President of Pakistan) enters the railway station whom were invited by Quaid-e-Azam (Founder of Pakistan) in 2013. They both started quarreling with each other by pin pointing the faults in their eras. Such as Zia Ul Haq made 15 Islamic political parties and used them for strengthening his era, used Islamic clauses for himself, given punishments who ever had spoken against him and wanted to have ruled for 100 years if his plane wasn’t been bombed. The same way Mr. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was hit with sentences by Zia ul Haq that why Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto as a democratic leader became Marshall Law Administrator in 1971 (which is only a right of Army Men), fight with General Yahya Khan, separated East Pakistan from Pakistan (now Bangladesh), used slogan of cloth house food for gaining his political fame and especially the sentences he had spoken with media about the using of political slogan after his speech with general public etc. Both Zia & Bhutto made allegation against each other in front of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah (Founder of Pakistan). Then a character in Sindhi favoring Pakistan People Party appears in the scene along with three modern ladies favoring Imran Khan & his party Tehrik-e-Insaaf. They both highlight the faults of other leaders & favors their own leaders where as Zia Ul haq asks 3 womens favoring Imran Khan to take Dopata (cloth) to cover them as per Islamic Sheriat (Law) which was totally denied by these modern women’s. In the end, a child asks Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah (Founder of Pakistan) to give a message to the nation. In return Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah (Founder of Pakistan) says;
“I had given so many messages to this nation but the nation is not only sleeping but also heartless so now no benefit for further sentences. However, I repeat the same as i had requested earlier in 1947”
Since Pakistan came into being in 1947 and after the death of Founder of Pakistan & Liaquat Ali Khan, no sincere leader has been found. All former leaders like General Ayub Khan (Won through unfair elections against Fatimah Jinnah in 1960’s), General Yahya Khan, Bhutto, General Zia ul Haq, Nawaz Sharif, Benazir, General Muhsrraf were never 100% sincere and loved power, fame, money. Even if they were then the percentage of their love and sincerity for Pakistan doesn’t cross 10 mark out of 100. They fought with each other for the powers, Zia hanged Bhutto in unfair legal trial, Zia being killed in plane, fight of Benazir with Nawaz Shairif in 90’s, Benazir Bhutto being killed in Rawalpindi, Liaquat Ali Khan (First Prime Minister of Pakistan) was murdered, Nawaz Sharif was thrown out of powers by General Musharaf etc. Who ever was with them in their era only fulfilled their bank accounts, took advantages, illegal gains and given a status to Pakistan a begging country for dollars.
The rest was and is being destroyed by Bureaucrats & Government Officers. These bureaucrats were and are considered as the real kings enjoying all luxuries and facilities. Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah (Founder of Pakistan) once said in his speech that Civil Service Officers (bureaucrats) are Public Servants but it turned otherwise general public become the servant of these bureaucrats since inception of Pakistan and till now. The behavior of these bureaucrats (of 90% CSP Officers) is rude, don’t like to come out of their offices & luxury cars, enjoy full luxuries (houses of 1000 to 2000 yards with minimum 2 brand new cars along with chauffeurs and army of servants), don’t have to pay a single bill, don’t like to see on ground situations being faced by a common man, obliging each other (Govt Officers with Govt Officers with Political Affiliations) etc. Some bureaucrats are good, honest and sincere and performing in the best of interest of Pakistan with down to earth nature as well as attitude with general public (%age is less then 10%). Many remain their in this state (performed for the best interest of Pakistan) in the initial phase of their first 2 to 5 years of their service and then become negligent as written above.
I had heard as well as studied in Masters degree about leadership role in the development of a country and leading in all circumstances but didn’t had idea of such importance. Just consider the role of Neilson Mandela, Ataturk, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah (Founder of Pakistan), George Washington, Mahatir Muhammad, Mahatma Ghandhi who all lonely lead and made countries. Though followers might have struggled more then their leaders in making countries/nations but followers were no value if these leaders alone had not provided them motivation, guidance, plan, lead towards the destiny. The nations who kept on following the guidance of their leaders and selected the right leaders after the death of the real ones became socially, economically giants of the world and who didn’t are destroyed or on a merge to be destroyed.
Pakistan had faced and still facing the same situation. After the death of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah (Founder of Pakistan), no sincere leader been found. In all the elections, those political parties and personalities were voted whom they know are corrupt, drunk, killers, snatchers, land grabbers etc.
So, in the end, the guilty and responsible for all these mishaps and destruction of Pakistan (economically, socially and all other) are over her own 180 million pupil
