If there is a prize for sham democracy, Pakistan should be getting it hands down. For the last five years, this democracy festival has done nothing but to make politicians rich and media famous. Anchorpersons of the media and fake degree holders are the only beneficiaries of this mess, given the name of democracy.
Pakistanis have grown tired of hearing about examples that the democracies in America and England took centuries to get mature, and so Pakistan must go through that grueling path and only then we would get the true democracy and its elusive fruits. Why don’t these armchair, envelope -paid wisdom contractors tell us that it took hundreds of years to invent, innovate, develop, market and produce the modern inventions by the West, so instead of using them right now, we must live in caves and first go through those years to hardwork and then use these modern inventions.
We in Pakistan are not lunatics and dumb entities. We have brains and we know that in order to implement a good precedence there is no need to go through all that process, and it can be implemented ready made with customization, only if the intent is right.
In Pakistan, all the components of a republic and democracy are there for years. All we need is some dyanamic and enlightened leadership with sagacious coterie. There is no harm in making a caretaker setup for 3 or even 5 years in Pakistan under the leadership of Pervaiz Musharraf, Syed. Tahir ul Qadri, PML-Q, ANP, MQM, Fazlur Rehman, and many other regional parties would instantly say Amen to that. Imran Khan will also not take long to say Yes.
So its practicable and there is no need to fear from media and judiciary, as they have been blabbing for years and will keep doing so. Let’s put Pakistan back onto the track. Lets’ welcome Musharraf.
