Yeh Pakistan Hai….!!

Written By: Labesh Kumar

A person breaks the traffic signal, when you ask him why you did so. Yeh Pakistan hai…yahan hota hai yeh sab, this would be reply. A Person spits paan wherever he wishes be it a wall or floor, when you ask him why is he doing this, his reply definitely would be Yaar yeh toh Pakistan hai, Yahan toh chalta hai yeh…

“Yeh Pakistan hai” the most common phrase we hear these days. People do wrong things and say, yar yeh Pakista hai, yahan sab hota hai, chalta hai. I just want to ask those people that are you from Jupiter?! Aren’t you a Pakistani?

We do things wrong, we make our country’s situation worse and the we ourselves blame country that its not good, rather than blaming ourselves that we are not good with our country. Why don’t we start having a new attitude and start saying that yeh Pakistan hai, aur yahan aisa nahin karne denge. Rather than saying yeh Pakistan hai aur yahan sab chalta hai….We should declare that yeh Pakistan hai aur yahan aisa nahin chalta.

What don’t we have every alternative source of energy? We do have the plenty of mineral resources…Agriculture? This is what Pakistan is famous for….Cricket? We have remained the world champions two times… Food? This is the mostly missed thing by overseas Pakistani…Everything from Kashmir to Tharparkar, from Khyber to Karachi, has a unique goodness, then why do we criticize our country for wrong things, which are actually done by ourselves. It is not the country, which is not good with us, it is we who are not good with country, and build the bad repo of the country.

The outsiders are just waiting to hear something bad about our country and make us target on those particular points and what we are doing is giving them a full opportunity and telling them that yes this is Pakistan therefore everything is done wrong here. Though the fact is something else, which everybody knows, i.e. we are hiding our faults behind the name of our country.

So my request to every Pakistani is that don’t blame Pakistan but claim it….because if we do things wrong and say “Yeh Pakistan hai, yahan sab jaiz hai”. Then obviously others would come here to do wrong things.

Don’t Blame but Claim!!!

    It is very surprising to note that Pakistani's Living Abroad In UK, USA, Kuwait Dubai Etc follow the traffic Rules and Regulations strictly and when they visit Pakistan They forget to the same thing here, also its rather funny to note that even some Foreigners who visit Pakistan don't follow the law and unfortunately give the reply "This is Pakistan anything is possible here" so the law enforcements should be strict as far as implementation of Laws are concerned and they should ensure that Law is equal for Every one

    I completely agree with you Zakir!! and labesh.. you raise an excellent point and we as pakistanis should consider this very seriously and make it a habit to do things right!!

    exactly! instead of saying that ye pakistan hai yahan sub chalta hai we need to first realize that when we say 'pakistan', we mean US...WE are what pakistan is made of....so if we want to change something,we will have to initiate that ourselves instead of criticising others...as they say 'charity begins at home'...we need to start following that and evetually small changes will lead to a larger and better change

    Whatever times a country faces, it is due to its people. If Pakistan is facing crises on different arenas; then it is the nation who is responsible. Your topic has become a part of our culture and at individual level we must work to eradicate this attribute.

    Labesh has put forward an excellent idea: "Ye Pakistan hai, yehan par aisa nahin chalne daingey ham".
    If this thing gathers momentum, our country which does have all the potential---could really become a super giant---and put the super powers under control.
    No bribery, no corruption, none of the bad things--some of which have been written by Labesh above.
    Labesh I would suggest, write an article on this subject as send it to the various newspapers in English, Urdu, Gujrati. At the outset you may tell the guys that you are not looking for a financial reward from this article but you are doing your bit as a Pakistani---in trying to get this copuntry back on an even keel, thereby leading towards great progress.
    Well done Labesh--the thought expressed by you is a great one!!

    It's high time that we Pakistani's took a stand and did something for this country. It's not just our country, its who we are! and if some one points a finger at Pakistan, they point a finger at us!
    we know that majority of our population is illiterate, but what has our literate lot ever done to bring a change? this is not what the Quaid Dreamt of, not what our ancesters fought for, but is definately what we deserve! if we cant stay faithful to our land, we shouldn't claim. but the sad part is, our country needs us!
