Major Problems Facing Pakistan Today (Part 5)



Let us now we analyze the time when Pervez Musharraf, took over on 12 October 1999 and he promised a corruption free government and one that would bring harmony among the federating units. First we take the issue of corruption. He has appeared to let himself be guided by big business on the corruption score. This is not at all huge tracts of land are being allotted to favorite parties at throw away prices23. The present confrontation between the judiciary and the ruling party is a result of the corruption of the one man who has been convicted once in Switzerland and does not want to lose his seat. Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, offered a bargain to the main opposition leader Mian Nawaz Sharif, and his party does not stress the Swiss cases against the President Asif Ali Zardari. President government won’t say NAB to proceed in cases against the Nawaz Sharif and his family.

Here question arises who is honest, truthful and who cover up the corrupt rule.

Is it all correct and according to the spirit of the democratic configuration24? Democracies do not go to war with other democracies. In true democratic setup government do not empower, protect, and harbor terrorists. Democratic society’s largely produce citizens that understand the importance of rule of law, uniformity, and tolerance25. In fact corruption has emerged as large problem in Pakistan seeing as the re-establishment of democracy but no serious steps are taken to curb it. Starting from political corruption to bribery, and nepotism, our country is infested with all sorts of voice as well as dishonesty and inefficiency.

Let turn the Transparency International Report, (TIP) report showed an enormous rise in corruption in 2010. According to the report police and bureaucrats as the two most corrupt public sector institutions. Corruption in the judiciary and education has also increased as compared to 2009. In this report said Pakistan People Party, (PPP) and led coalition parties more corrupt that the previous military regime26. The nominated government of President Asif Ali Zardari, and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, seeking short term economic support from the number of sources. A stable democratic prosperous Pakistan is considered vital to US interests and it apprehension concerning Pakistan counting regional and overall terrorism.

The supreme confront in attendance government faces in an economic one. High rise in fuel and food prices, combined with political instability led to a rapid rise in inflation and high unemployment apparently have contributed to a rise in poverty and hunger in Pakistan. Recently growth in poverty and starvation is exacerbating Pakistan’s political problem27. Today we require improved good governance, including a frontal attack on corruption. Good governance along with stabilization and structural reforms are essential to achieve sustained, rapid, and equitable growth. However success of lawyer movement and restoration of independent judiciary is a new hope for corruption free Pakistan as higher judiciary has started to implement their judicial policies which ensure zero tolerance for any corruption in any tier of judiciary.

The controversial and unconstitutional National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) brought Asif Ali Zardari, back into the political realm. Main problem with the judiciary is the long period of time requires adjudicating cases of corruption. It is main reason that number of cases will never be resolute. President Asif Ali Zardari,and his allies are in no mood to resign. This is not easy, Asif Ali Zardari, and his corrupt follows will not resign until, enforced to step down just as Pervez Musharraf was forced to resign.

The process of transparent accountability is essentially required for maintaining good governance. Accountability does not encompass only the government but all the institutions including civil society. Monitoring of administration is necessary for good governance. In Pakistan we can see the corruption, reckless handling, of funds at each level and violations of human rights and exploitation of rule of law especially at top level.
