In the context of the history, Pakistan came into being as a democratic state. Actually the reason for this democracy is the colonial rule on the sub-continent. In his early speech Quaid e Azam said that now each racial group is free to go there adoration places as they wish. There is no bigotry on the basis of religion, cast, color and creed. Quaid also announced for the rights of the minorities. In a famous interview when Quaid was asked: “Will Pakistan be a theocratic state?” Quaid replied: Pakistan will be a democratic state.
In my opinion, democracy is government for the people, by the people, it is having the right to voice ones opinion, but on the other hand we also see incidents when the government goes into the hands of those who do not deserve it.
The people of Pakistan are not educated, they have so many problems that they cannot rise above them to see the greater good of the country and work for it. In Pakistan we concentrate the power in the hands of a few feudal lords, huge business groups, who are simply not capable of ruling us or even understanding our problems for that matter.
Nowadays, in Pakistan as we are watching on the TV channels, the issue of “false-degrees.” I cannot understand how these people are entitled to sit in the house to represent our country. The bogus way they in point of fact are using, is the ghastly sign on the mug of the democracy.
According to me, if they are in lieu of their self as the representatives of the common people, then they should be true to their job and not deceive the very people who are the reason behind them holding those positions, but they do not do that, as they are not our true representative but we still choose them and choose them again and again. For the incursion of democracy in Pakistan, we exploit the legal way to become the bona fide democrats.
