Another Independence Day : 14th August 2007


One more year has passed and another one started. The peregrination that started 60 years ago on 14th August 1947  has completed 60 glorious years and still vibrant and energetic in spite of all the ups and downs that She has faced during the past 60 years.

We as a nation are entering a very tough and critical stage in view of the current political situation on national and international arena. Last year was one of horrible years of the history of Pakistan. Here is a reminiscent of events that I remember.

  • Waziristan Operation
  • Bugti Issue
  • Tussle of the Chiefs (CEO vs CJP)
  • Massacre of 12th May
  • Lal Masjid Operation witnessed the barbarism of army against its own people.
  • Numerous Suicidal Bombing incidents through out the year and especially after Lal Masjid issue ,claiming a number of innocent lives.
  • Oil Prices shooting higher and higher
  • Inflation and its consequences on the not an elite class.
  • Heavy rainfall and the inability of City Government to cope up with the disasters yet still claiming the situation under complete control without any remorse.
  • Severe shortage of Electricity and bombastic announcement to control it by the end of 2007 ,failing miserably short of the target.
  • Non-Uniformity about the Uniform.
  • Presidential Power Play.
  • Dealing with the DEAL.
  • WAR on Terror with terror.
  • Rumors about declaring state of Emergency.
  • Democratic Dictatorship
  • Humiliating dismissal of Pakistan from the Cricket World Cup.
  • Ever increasing gap between so called enlightened liberals and so called extremist.

But still , we have hopes ,hopes to make things better, hopes to make Pakistan better, hopes to pull out the country from the turmoil.

Let’s Make Pakistan Better. Pakistan Zindabad

  1. great dude thats the spirit…yes still love Pakistan, despite all its shortcomings.

  2. To all Pakistani…..on your 60th Independence Day!

    God, grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change;
    courage to change the things we can; and
    the wisdom to know the difference.
    Living one day at a time;
    enjoying one moment at a time;
    accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.
    Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as we would have it.
    Trusting that He will make all things right, if we surrender to His will.
    That we may be reasonably happy in this life,and supremely happy with Him forever in the next.


    Pakistan Zindabad..

  3. Pakistan is my beautiful dream gone wrong…….the best place with the worst inhabitants……they tear apart every inch of the country yet wave flags on their motorcycles ( have to add noisy motorcycles here)………if you care about this place……please show it that you do…….its too precious to be played with like this…..May Allah (SWT) bless our country and change its fate….Ameen!
