Why I love Pakistan

Despite my country being a near failed state, I still love Pakistan. I dream of the day when my fellow citizens will be able to live together in peace. I dream of better times in the years to come, when a man or woman will not be discriminated against because he or she is not a muslim or does not belong to a particular province.

And I love Pakistan because wherever I go, the people are so hospitable and kind. I know that wherever I go, I shall be able to make myself understood easily because the dialects of the people are so similar.

I remember the time when I had to wait twenty four hours before I could make a telephone call from Peshawar to Karachi, because of the long waiting line. I remember when the cost of calling Lahore was forty rupees per minute compared to today’s rates of two rupees a minute. It would take years before one got a telephone connection. Very few people had cars or motor cycles. Now practically every family has a vehicle.

Although the pollution has increased, medical facilities have grown astronomically. In the early sixties, there was only one doctor in Nursery, where I lived. Now there are ten. Medicines were very expensive and had to be imported. Now we have factories making drugs for practically every ailment under the sun.

When television first appeared in 1967, there was only one channel. Now, there are fifty and growing. It’s a real pleasure to watch TV plays produced by talented players.

Yes, the country has progressed remarkably. I am hundred percent sure that in the coming days, we shall overcome our political problems and the rule of law will be restored.

    dear fellows…your participation is being appreciated..
    as u knw our country is in grip of so many emerging problems..whether these problems are in the form of power break down or economical crisis…whatever….the need of the hour is that our country need a loyal,sincere,responsable,truthfull leader….there is hardly a person who isnt suspected on his intentions,who isnt blammed of his unfair dealings.all the update n recent leaders hav lost their creditability before the entire nation…the economic circumstances would be surmounted,load shedding wud be tided over,war against terrorism islikely to be conquerd but……..CAN WE GIVE TO OUR NATION A DEDICATE AND TRUSTWORTHY PERSON???the answer of this in present pitiable plight of the country is “no”….
    lets hope fo the best…nd lets hav a liberty in our own thinkings and opinions…may ALLAH give us strength…{meen}

    This is a very good site for youngsters Pakistani to share their views. In fact Pakistan is a very beautiful country. Our Young generation has a potential to bring Pakistan our beloved mother land to the heights of improvement.

    but my complain is from our Politicians, Our Leaders they are not good Politician. they are thieves. they want only money from the Nation. they are a corrupt persons.
    but Inshaalh Pakistan will save.

    But Inshallah

    Well, I have different reasons to love my country. The role-model of Khilafat e Rashida tells me that you can be a biggg nation even without having sky-scrappers or materialistic progress in the country. My country is my first and foremost and my last LOVE because it unified my idea of patriotism and morality. My religion is protected by law and law is made in the view of my religion. My ideology does not have to differ … I don’t have to rant Vande Mataram in school instead of reciting about my Khuda e Zuljalal. Although our dissidence and indifference have deformed the shape of my beloved homeland … I hope there comes a time when Pakistani people could be able to bear it no more and they will stand up … they will stand up for their basic rights and will dictate their own destiny instead of some filthy rich schmucks who try to undertake their future by transferring their properties, their families and their monies out of the country. Those “lose coins” which were in our Quaid’s pocket are taxing us their price for communion and I wish we should now tell them that they have been paid enough.

    you are a day dreamer. keep on dreaming, because thats what everyone in Pakistan can do, without any limits to it.
    You mentioned how Drugs are being produced in factories for every ailment that is out there!! get a reality check mate…as majority of the local made drugs are placibos, without the proper ingredients, and the imported ones are so expensive that only richer can buy them.
    i can go on and on,,,,but i just can’t find enough time to speak about a country that is just a false hope to millions of patriots that are out there, thinking one day Pakistan will be a nation free from corruption.
