Why slow progress of Pakistan?

By Sadia Ashfaq

No doubt, despite countless challenges, Pakistan has been progressing but not as much as compared to other developed countries of the world. Pakistan still needs to work hard to get a place in the list of developed countries.

Why is Pakistan lagging behind even after 68 years of independence? Whereas it should have been progressing by leaps and bounds in industry, agriculture, technology and every other field that puts a nation in the worthy category of developed countries. Pakistan is suffering from a large number of problems.

 

Here is a list that points out the hurdles in the way of our achieving progress:

⦁ Illiteracy

⦁ Energy Crises

⦁ Terrorism

⦁ Unemployment

⦁ Poverty

⦁ Injustice

⦁ Lack of Leadership

⦁ Population Growth

So many mistakes have been made in the past 70 years in our society that we have gone into a reverse mode. Instead of praising the ones who are the true role models, we make them controversial. Why? Because we can’t compete with them. We don’t want to correct ourselves and can’t dare to see someone else doing that, we don’t want them to become the role models for the society. Role models are not some sort of extraordinary people.

The myth prevailing in our minds is that one needs to be accomplished, famous, rich and powerful for it to be considered a role model. False conception! Role models are generated from an ordinary home. One needs to develop a deeper perception of the problems to solve the issues.All the above problems are connected with each other and their only solution is education.

Education is the solution to the problems of Pakistan and it is the responsibility of every educated citizen to spread awareness about it, to encourage the following generation as they are our future.

People need to enlighten their vision and see for themselves, when choosing a leader, their capabilities and ideology. They need to perceive things on their own. They should stop behaving like a rat running behind the pied piper.

Not the leader of words, but the leader of actions”
