When I drove from Johar to North Nazimabad to caste my vote; I saw billboards, pamphlets, flyers and other promotional ads everywhere. I wondered what would have happened if these political parties would have used this money to promote Pakistan rather than promoting themselves. The cost of pamphlets, banners, billboards, well decorated cars and God knows what else must be exceeding ARABS. What if they used this stuff to build the country? If they had done it, I don’t think they wouldneed any source of promotional activities today. People would be giving them votes willingly.
Today I casted my vote; there was enthusiasm in the eyes of people. There was a hope to see a new Pakistan where they will be given rights (Well, let us hope so). Today I played my role as a Pakistani. Today I felt what it means to be a citizen of country. I don’t care about the result. At least I tried. I played my role.
I say who ever doesn’t vote today, doesn’t have any right to say anything for next five years. Your right will be snatched to raise avoice; your right will be snatched to curse Pakistan. You will be the one responsible for everything, not only of Pakistan but all the people residing.
Let’s just praythat whosoever comes; works for the betterment of the people of Pakistan and doesn’t work for his own benefit. This time people have great hopes. Let’s see what it turns out to be.
Let’s pray for a new Pakistan, a better Pakistan, an educated Pakistan, a just Pakistan and an honorable Pakistan. Whosoever comes; works for the betterment of the people of Pakistan. A place where humanity is valued and not disgraced, a place where rights of people are prioritized and not casted away, a place filled with unity and respect. Yes, we pray for us, our nation, OUR Pakistan.
This time people have great hopes. Lets see what it turns out to be.
