YOUTH REVOLUTION IN PAKISTAN (REASONS IN THE INTELLECT DEBATE BY MOHAMMAD BIN IFTIKHAR)
It is time for a revolution. Government does not work for regular people. It appears to work quite well for for the feudals, the rich and powerful. But it does not work for people.
The 1973 Constitution of Pakistan emphasizes that when abuses by those in power is evidence to a design to reduce the rights of people to freedom, happiness, it is then the peoples right to engage in a revolution.
The last time the country saw a personality capable of changing Pakistan’s ideological foundations was Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto or Presdient Mushsraf. Bhutto & Mussharaf had the popularity and a vision, right or wrong, required for changing Pakistan’s outlook.They preached “a true revolution of values will soon cause us to question the fairness and justice of many of our past and present policies.” It is clearer than ever that now is the time for radical change.
Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached in Riverside Church in New York City that “a time comes when silence is betrayal.” He went on to condemn the Vietnam War and the system which created it and the other injustices clearly apparent. “We as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a “thing oriented” society to a “person oriented” society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism and militarism are incapable of being conquered.”
We pay our taxes and we have the right to speak our constitution has given us this right so its time to wake up. It's time for Revolution in Pakistan.
