Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) is becoming the torch bearer within the society. The amount of change and its impact is tremendous through efforts of PTI chairman and all the teams that have contributed to the success. But we need to do more. In order to reach to the perceptions of a common Pakistani, we need to ensure that we have all the mechanisms in place at all levels to promote this message of self-esteem, freedom and justice. We are to be seen to be carrying that message in all corners and quarters.
The roles and responsibilities to make this happen are challenging and huge but it can be done. It is this responsibility we all as individuals, all as cohesive teams as one unit and all as a nation have to share. It is our responsibility. We need to feel this change as we feel thirst and hunger. We need to feel this change and contribute as we contribute in our daily lives in all we do; from the moment we wake up to the moment we fall asleep. There is a purpose in our existence to see what’s happening around us and we can bring that change.
We will be asked these questions how we as individuals contributed towards betterment of our society- It will be our conscience where these questions will come from and we need to make sure our conscience is alive and feels the need and the hour of importance. It is in our hands to make that difference as we cannot rely on outsiders. We cannot rely on IMFs and all the other institutions of the world and the governments. It is us who will have to change and be those proponents of clarity, tolerance and understanding.
We have to become like Quaid-e-Azam and Iqbal, and all those people who contributed towards creation of Pakistan and those millions of sacrifices by all those people for whom the purpose was so great and essential. We have to become like Jinnah and Iqbal. We need to find them inside us. Once we have found them, then there will be no stopping.
Pakistan is one of the most fertile places on this planet earth: It carries huge natural resources; the land is beautiful as no other. But the mistakes of the past cannot be repeated. We need to look at our past to learn from it but not live, and move forward. It is this responsibility which carries its burden upon our souls and we must carry that with dignity and pride. Change will happen. Progression to freedom and justice is in sight and for that we must unite and whatever we can do in our powers to spread this message.
We must not treat Pakistan and all that it encompasses – the people, the land, the resources and our heritage as a charity but as a gift. The hours of darkness will disappear into the warmth of the sun for all of us when we find ourselves and purpose.
