PAKISTAN OUR DREAM

I have a strong feeling that we can overcome myriad of problems which Pakistan is facing and weakening our root. There is no dispute that only a true democracy will deliver in all dimension to a country having potential & motivated to move on the path of progress. Pakistan since its inception remained under experiment in different forms of governance. No form of government could come to the expectations of the common man. Where we stand now is that common man is suffering the miseries of all nature and forms whereas, our rulers are busy building their assets in safe heavens where they will settle down, once out of power.
 
There is no dearth of potential, hard work and commitment in our youth. Pakistanis are known for their enterprizing skills and are trusted for that. We as a nation, are now completely disoriented and find no approach to get out of our miseries. If we go back in the realm of our history, except for our founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah, we find no leader of substance, wisdom, vision, motivation, modesty and selflessness. Not being blessed with a true leader, we are rudderless and moving in all directions without any aim and objectives.
 
I believe, for unusual situation we need to have unusual approach. We have a corrupted and mutilated Constitution which is not the reflection of common man aspirations. Our constitution in the present form serves the interest of the rulers only. The common man finds no place to go to redress their complain which breeds frustration and depression causing them to fall into the trap of Suicide Bomber Net, Militant Organization, Under Ground World, Roady Looters & Killers. They dont have any choice. It is not their fault, it is the fault of our weak and corrupt leadership and government.
 
In line with the ground reality, I suggest that the time has come that we, the common man rise to the occasion. As a collective force supported by the media, we can force our leaders to legislate another amendment in the constitution. The proposed consitutional amendment should ensure that institutions like Judiciary, Armed Forces, Bureaucracy, Para Military, Police, FIA, CIA, IB,Financial Institutions and Corporations like PIA, Civil Aviation, OGDC, PSO and Gas Companies etc be made apolitical. All instructions and orders by the government in power to these institutions, even the routine matters be in writing and documented. These institutions should have the legal protection to refuse orders and instructions considered not lawful command. Moreover, posting, transfer, induction, promotion, training and employment should be the domain of head of the institutions having their own dedicated organizational structures to manage all functions transparently. Only the pre-designated federal and provincial officials can issue orders & instructions to such institutions. In case of any complain or redress, the Head of the institution and Corporation should be answerable to the government. In case, anyone feels aggrieved or wilfull defiance of order, the recourse to law (judiciary) could be the available option.
 
Once, we have such a legislation, all sorts of corruption, misuse of power & authority and bad governance can be checked and eliminated. Moreover, our national institutions will get the space to grow, develop, perform and deliver fearlessly in the best interest of the country and institution itself. Even politically, we expect a big transformation when only those who are dedicated to the cause of Pakistan and its reputation will enter the political arena to serve the nation. The mushroom political leaders and workers finding no nuisance power to their credit will move away and we will have a dedicated breed of politicians.
