Pakistan will never have a revolution. We are too fragmented a society; too diverse in our perceptions. Every single Pakistani is faced with problems that are real; problems that have no visible solution. Yet we survive and continue to plod on.
Because we are survivors. We know how to use any situation to our advantage. Each one of us has a scam going; from the wealthiest tax dodger to the lowliest; the penniless pickpocket; the beggar, the phone snatching youngster.
We do not like to make waves. We don’t like to fight. We do not want to disturb the status quo. We modify; adapt, beg, steal, rob; prostitute our bodies, our minds, our values. Because we have an OUT. Five times a day, we turn to our Creator and beg his forgiveness; his understanding.
WE HAVE TO PLEASE HIM.
HE CHARTS OUR DESTINY.
HE GIVES US OUR LEADERS.
OUR DAILY BREAD.
FIVE TIMES A DAY WE MAKE OUR PEACE WITH HIM.
THE HELL WITH EVERYONE ELSE.
THIS HAS TO CHANGE; IT WILL NOT WORK ANY MORE. WE HAVE TO FALL IN STEP WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD.
