History is full of most truthful, honest leadership, and other
side we can see the most corrupt and brutal leaders. The main causes of the
downfall of nations have been corruption and incompetent leadership. We can
see that supper powers support the incompetent leadership only for their self
interest. When we evaluate the history and comprising with Pakistan Strong and
powerful have always exploited the weak in a crude and inhuman manner. While
the deprived intoxicated by heavy doses of philosophies recommending to recognize
their ordained fate have kept quite and suffered. Corruption imperfectly affected
the value of governance. It is of different types. Political corruption, related
to the politicians and luxurious corruption is connected with the high rank
When Pakistan came into being on14 August 1947, Quaid-e-Azam
Muhammad Ali Jinnah has strongly condemned the presence of corruption. Islam
explicitly condemns the existence of corruption in every form. The root causes
of the rampant corruption in the country are lack of responsibility, lack of
effective accountability, poor performance, unchecked and limitless power all
play a very important role to produce the deteriorate law and order. Since the
inception of Pakistan, many governments called the champions of democracy has
become the victim of the widespread corruption, and continues corrupt practices
badly damage the process of democracy. Poor and common peoples of Pakistan badly
effected at each level and every field of life. Violation of merit at each level
is common thing, postings and promotions are increasingly made on the basis
of personal contacts and political affiliations powerfully.
When we evaluate the past we can see the same problems. First
Martial Law imposed in 1958. Ayub Khan introduced the first Land Reforms in
1959 restricting maximum land holding to 500 acres irrigated and 1000 un-irrigated.
This made people realize that Ayub Khan was more interested in their well being
and Army rule comfortably till 1971 and did not allow democratic institutions
to get hold.
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto started his offer for power on the promise
of Roti, Kapra aur Makan. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto also raised voice against the
imbalance and made promised to distribute wealth from rich to poor.
Zial-ul-Haq also made promise that he provides justice to the
common people and he also forgotten the land reforms, and during this period
rich people become richer and paid little tax. He imposed his policies in the
name of islamization to get support from religious discipline.
Common man again kept his eyes focused on democratic rule of
Benazir Bhutto and rule of Muhammad Nawaz Sharif. Both came to power twice but
could not do much for the common peoples. The government of Benazir Bhutto and
rule of Muhammad Nawaz Sharif who consecutively came to power obviously attempted
to ponder all powers in their hands creating a sense of estrangement in the
smaller provinces and hopelessness among the people. Most of our civil governments
have been dismissed on corruption charges. President Ghulam Ishaq Khan dissolve
the democratic governments on the charges of corruption. President Farooq Ahmad
Leghari dismissed the Benazir Bhutto.s government on corruption charges. Presedent
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.
After the assassination again democratic set up came into being
after February 2008 elections. Now Presedent Asif Ali Zardari government not
knows what to do. Again rich peoples become richer, again rich peoples paid
little tax. MQM like the past made promise and prepare a bill of Land Reforms
but only self interest not fairly interested for common people. Common people
wait for some relief, but present government is not in a position give any relief.
According the Transparency International Report showed that Pakistan Peoples
Party and led coalition governments more corrupt that the previous military
regime. Today we need improve governance, including a frontal attack on corruption.
When we evaluate the education system in Pakistan we can know
the history of false starts. Only constructive and positive education develops
the root of any nation. Education plays a vital role in development of a nation.
During the Ayub Khan Rule educational development was handed over to the educational
organization. Outstanding to such steps the worth of educational planning. Zulfikar
Ali Bhutto gave its educational policy. It made the education free and compulsory
up to class 10th. After this Zia-ul-Haq promoted the madrassahs, and number
of madrassah rapidly promoted in Pakistan. Mosque schools were opened. Muhammad
Mawaz Sharif also wok on education policy. During Prevez Musharraf regime in
Punjab chief minister of Punjab Pervez Elahi like the Zulfikar Ali Bhutto made
the education free and compulsory again. First time in the history of Pakistan
research work at highest level started in universities and globally showed interest
in research work in different fields. Here question arise what is the vision
and hearty effort of our past leaders on education.
We all know that
Seeking knowledge is compulsory for each and every Muslim both
male and female
Only education can prepare our generation/ youth/ according
to their golden norms and values.
Because only education is the most powerful weapon which you
can use to change the world.
Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah said that in the united Pakistan
there has to be one education system for all the children of Pakistan.
Here it is important to note that our governments past and
present neglect the Islamic saying and Quaid-e-Azam's saying and ignore the
true values. Like the other fields corruption in education has created disappointed
and restlessness among the people. Present we again see the same problems and
promise like fair accountability, equality before law, and end of corruption
etc. Here it is important to note who stop the corruption? Are Fake degree holders
stopping the corruption; corrupt leaders and officers stop the corruption and
provide the justice and fair accountability. No it is impossible corrupt, unfair
leader and officers only prevent the corruption and injustice, and create many
evils in our society and damage the democratic process. Only competent, honest,
loyal, forward looking, cooperative and courageous leaders / officers/ researchers/
ministers/bureaucrats/ Army officers and judiciary etc create the pleased atmosphere
and gravely to do some relief for common people and crushed the corruption.
Remember one thing that we all responsible, but those people who have high authority
are more responsible
- The government should establish the rule of law equally.
- Effectual and impartial accountability at each level.
- Equal opportunities for common citizen. Equal application, equal protection
and equal before law.
- Create awareness among people through effective education.
- Incompetent and corrupt leaders and officers at each level and every field
of life damage the economic, political and educational institutions.
- The leaders are not capable, weaker moral training, made huge amount of
money and shifted other countries banks only their self interest.
- For the true democracy, educated, honest, loyal, brave, common man should
invited to join the government/politics/different sector in this way we
create the accurate democratic system and without problems get ride the
many evils like, extremism, injustice, rule of law and corruption etc.
In sum this is not easy walk out corrupt leaders/officers/bureaucrats/judges/politicians
etc. If they don't learn from history and recently like Egypt peoples, remember
our brave, honest, competent, loyal youth/common man will not leave until enforced
to step down the corrupt/ dishonest leaders like Egypt peoples.
