A very compelling writeup of a Patriotic Pakistani.One actually yearns for the efficiency of Military dictatorship. As Israel started killing Palestinians , the impotency of MUSLIM UMMA IS coming into sharp focus for Pakistan which was the first nation created on the basis of RELIGION and believed strongly in it.Saudi arabia didnot even give a petro fascility when pakistan was defaulting.It gave 250 tons of dates. Its princes come occasionally to hunt rare Pakistani birds.Saudies do not allow their citizens to visit Pakistan while they can visit kaffir India!!!Once Pakistan comes out of Muslim UMMA SYNDROME it will evolve as also Palestinians.

Atleast from this post onwards i hope yuo donot support Kashmiri muslims who apparently tell you they want to be part of pakistan. Dont you think for the good of people and for a healty identity they should stay with India ??

It is again a question of thinking what Pakistan has given me or what did I give to Pakistan. I think Pakistan gave me an identity, and pretty much everything I have today. It is my turn to repay this country. Pakistan may have problems like any other country, still this is our homeland and I love Pakistan.

People of Pakistan are left with no choice but to support crooks. Whole country would have been turned to another Afghanistan had Musarraf not ruling it. I remember, after 9/11 I was wishing that Musarraf say “NO” to US demands and we have end to whole Kashmir issue too…….unfortunately, didn’t happen. I thought at least “Lal Masjiz” episode would propel and snowball to make people of Pakistan taste the dust of Islamic extremism but again general was back for the rescue. But like said “Mulla ki daud masjid tak”, fools brought the only savior down……. Now, it’s a wait and watch game for Pakistan to dig its own grave and then happily sit in it.

I’m Pakistan born, albeit bred in places whose history (at times) is more familiar to me than my own. As you’ve also suggested, Pakistan is a feeling idealized by those who’re familiar with its inherent potential and it served as part of our identity abroad. It still is very much part of who I am, despite my foreign accent and being typecast as either Indian, Turkish, Greek, Arab etc. never quite Pakistani enough. The constant political upheaval, the warring factions in the north and the threat of poverty leaves one grappling for air. Take heart Myra, Pakistan is still very, very young. The country we’d like it to be will take many years to come to fruition. Possibly our great grandchildren will enjoy the Pakistan we long for. In the mean time try to look for the positive, gravitate towards what you see is change; highlight it and bring it to the world’s attention. You’re already creating history. Cheers.

i dont care and i dont ask this question ever,OH WHAT PAKISTAN DID FOR ME,i always ask what i did for pakistan and want to do a lot of pakistan.

if that man who shouted OH GOD FORGIVE OUR GRANDFATHERS …… iam sure his for GRANDFATHERS WILL BE SPINIGN IN there graves,what i will say good give reward and have mercy on our grandfatehrs who did a great job by creating pakistan,if WE failed to do good for pakistan and with pakistan its not there fault.

if your home have a problem you try to fix it,not burn down the house or leave the house or start saying oh i hoped i never had a house.
