No matter what you are witnessing these days, economically, politically or democratically, its the beginning of something great. It is the new start to an old story that is ending. It is the people of Pakistan exercising their right to speak up, perhaps for the first time in Pakistan’s history. Before we used to look towards the armed forces, or at times even without looking, we used to find the armed forces in our neighbourhoods trying to run the affairs. And us Pakistanis used to pin all our hopes to the army and expect miracles to happen. They never did because miracles can only happen when the people rise up not when someone else intervenes on people’s behalf.
This time around, people are rising up. Using their voices to demand better governance. Better management of financial affairs. Better dispensation of justice. Better and across the board process of accountability. Better handling of our institution. This is the first time in the history of Pakistan that the people are demanding what the people deserve. And this has put all our politicians in a state of disbelief. Never before have the politicians seen the people demand from them that this country be run with absolute transparency.
We almost beat terrorism from few bombs a day to a bomb every few months. Courts are “Beginning” to function how the courts should. Army is beginning to realize what the role of army should be, national security. Even a common man is questioning the complex financial matters of the country, which is the biggest sign of change. There is no fear of a certain party in Karachi. You can speak up to your heart’s desire. Corrupt officials are hiding their assets. Investors are demanding their rights of protection in the capital markets. Earlier they used to invest, face a crash, get out and cry in a corner. All this is happening because the social media has connected all of us in real time and has taken the tyranny of censorship away and out of the picture.
Pakistan has a great future. We are in the transition mode from the old ways of running this great country to the new and people’s betterment based system of governance. Pakistan has existed with all its problems and no hope before. Now the hope is here. Now the ray of sunshine is penetrating onto our heads. Look up. Look towards the sun. Look towards the light. It may temporarily blind you but you will get used to it in a bit and then once your eyes get used to the shining light, you will be able to see past it. And past it is the bright clear sky hovering above our heads, The sky of improvement. The sky of advancement. The sky of betterment. The sky holding our rainbow like future and the same sky where the creator is looking down upon us, smiling with his mercy.
