What Needs Doing?

I was very restless before my previous blog “ Whats Wrong” but when I finished it though I am weak on writing which you all have to bare with me, I feel a lot lighter now as I needed to take all that out of my system. Now that I have I am much more relaxed and can share more of my thoughts with you all.

Previously in my posts I mentioned what needs to be done to get our country on the right track. Here I would not use the phrase ‘right track again’ because it has never been on the right track. I am going to restrain my self here to talk about how the politicians has robbed our country for their own interests and gains to its bare nickles rather I would like to mention the role we can play in brining the better change for our country. The word change has been used so often in every election by every corrupt politician that it has worn out but still we have to use it is a good word and it explains the whole concept.

Anyone with a conscience, a bit of wisdom, a bit of knowledge of Pakistan’s past and present, anyone who is not enjoying the fruits by corruption, humanity, eman, will to sacrifice and patriotism can bring the change we all need now. Now a days the role of every person who has a little bit of the above mentioned qualities can be a major add on to the cause especially the young ones and please I am not talking about the young ones who are so distarcted by  the mobile companies packages and cell phone marketings that they don’t even remember how to write an application without using u for you and thx for thanks( sorry guys but it is the truth and I have to say much more about that too but some other time). Also it should be mentioned here that while using the word young or youth should not be confused with just  college students but rather this word is used in a larger perspective for the young matured professionals of this country as well. No one can deny the importance of the more younger ones but I believe they need more time to study then to get involved in such things after all education is everything and they need to work hard to become the future leaders, educators, industrialists, economists, doctors and engineers.

Back to the topic; the role of the youth is the hot topic these days in the media and in social sectors. And it is right, as what the youth can do for this country no one else can. They are the force which is far more superior than anything. All that needs to be done is to wake them up by putting them in front lines, by bringing them into the system, by introducing them to the politics and social sector, by introducing them to the teachings of Quran and Sunnah, by teaching them the value of being a Muslim and last but not least making them believe in themselves. They need to be taught about the grim realities if nothing is done. They need to be taught their importance in the society. Youth has to be taught the fact that only grades and getting in to best universities is not enough; I mean only education is not enough but they have to be socially active as well. When I talk to my colleagues or relatives or friends about coming out and doing something practical for our future rather then sitting in our drawing rooms and hujras talking; I always get a very dissappointing reply. What would you do if you come out ? they say. What would happen to your job? how would you feed yourself? what about the lifestyle and worst of all what if you are killed? lolx. Would you have a job, food, education,luxury, freedom and life if Allah forbids there is no more country and we are in a position Iraq, Palestine, Libya are at this time.

I am not saying here to leave your life, quit your job, forget about your family and come out and shout on the streets. That time has not come yet and may Allah save us from that times and when it comes we all have to do that but at the moment what I, you and all of us needs to do is to raise our voice either way we can. Through meetings, sms, social websites, media, seminars whatever wherever you get a chance in any sort of gathering make it your objective to say something positive for the country in it. Make people to listen to you gather like minded people,become a member of any organization working on the same agenda, form an organization yourself, a society anything just for the sake of the cause which is upon us.

These days the social networks can play a significant role as it did in the Egyptian up rise. Use that for your benefit. Let me share my own recent experience with you all. I have been using Facebook for quiet sometime now but i am not a Facebook junkie and recently 2 or 3 days earlier I started a page ” Mera Pakistan” http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mera-Pakistan/151318818282644 to get my friends to join me and share there views there but i have been struck by utter disappointment when i did not receive any feed back other than a few likes. I have noticed that who ever is using Facebook theses days they are using it just for watching funny videos and updating useless statuses and liking any such page as mine or any page or group related to cause has become a fashion type thingy. They don’t bother to look into something which has a few words to read so how would they be a part of something like this.  This attitude needs to be changed for better.

I have to wind up this post too as it becomes very long and i dont want you guys to get scared and run away so the final thought would be to to educate our people especially youth but for that educated people are required and by educated i mean not just para likha but people who know things. Before becoming a part of something the youth needs to become more social. Engage in social and humanitarian activities. Look around them to the people below  their life style and get to know them. They need to know about their own country and then raise their voice through any means available to them. Write something on your Facebook page, join the pages already there rather than creating you own, say something in your friends gathering, family meetings, Eid is coming spread your thoughts but remember there is no need to talk about what is happening everybody knows that . Talk about solutions.Most importantly know Islam. What you are worth if you are a better Muslim. Seek guidence from the divine Quran and Sunnah.  Gather like minded people and become one.
