It was 14th august “the day of Pakistan independence”….. So I texted all my friends good wishes and received great response and warm wishes. But one of my friends replied a really strange and hopeless text which showed her hatred and abhorrence for Pakistan. I was shocked and dishearten cause though my country is a backward country but I LOVE IT. And cannot return all happiness, delights and pleasures it has given me.
It is the place where great squash players like Jahangir, Jansher; cricket players like Imran Khan, Waseem Akram, Javed miandad , Shahid Afridi and Great people like Abdul Qadeer khan and little Arfa Kareem were born.
It is true that poverty, bomb blasts, corruption and terrorism lies here but it has also given shelter to Edhi, and the bravest army.
It is true that it is a dirty and pollutant country but also the first Islamic nuclear country. It is the country from where each year 70% brilliant students out of world are selected for scholarships; it is the country where kids at age of 9 had mastered the computers.
The thing is that we always think badly about it, but there are lots of thing good about it. And I hope our youngsters will make Pakistan better than ever. The only need is we should be optimistic and ambitious and we should spread optimism NOT negativity.
Good...Happy independence Day to u too!!!May Allah Bless....Just because of exaggeration in media we think that Pakistan is bad...Full of blasts and firing and most unsafe place of the world....whereas it is not.....
