AN OPEN LETTER TO THE PRIME MINISTER, IMRAN KHAN

 

Inayet Ullah

Mr Prime Minister,

 

Assalam-o-Alaikum.

Hope you are fine and in good health. I am a Pakistani, currently resident in New Jersey, USA. I am your supporter in Pakistani politics and have been following the developments and changes taking places in Pakistan. I request you to kindly take out some of your precious time for my following feelings:

 

Most political, economic and industry experts and analysts of Pakistan say that they are supporters of Imran Khan from the beginning of his political career and have great hopes and expectations that things will get better in Pakistan and Imran Khan will make the people of Pakistan’s life better. But looking at the conditions currently in Pakistan, they are beginning to be worried that “if God forbid, Imran Khan fails what would be the fate of Pakistan”.

 

In two spheres the present government has performed well and delivered excellently: (1) accountability of corrupt rulers and (2) handling the foreign affairs – in a short time of one year the image of Pakistan has been greatly improved in the world. But what about a lot of the poor people of Pakistan? They cannot afford to wait until all the corrupt rulers are brought into accountability, investigations completed against them and they are made to face legal proceedings and final verdicts of the judiciary. I think both tasks can and should go simultaneously.

 

The problems of Pakistan and their possible solution can be put, in a nutshell, thus: (1)(a) Accountability of the corrupt rulers and making them face the law, (1)(b) making reforms in the country wherever it is necessary, and (2) Take steps to make things better i.e. alleviate Poverty, providing water, electricity, education, healthcare  and most importantly and urgently, creating jobs. Surely, the tasks are gigantic and cannot be completed overnight. It may take years to complete them. However, with whatever means available, we should start some industrial projects, however, small, that would create jobs that are most urgently needed. The government should focus on creating jobs. When people will have jobs, they can make their houses themselves. With the efforts to eradicate corruption, at the same time, the availability of basic needs and development programs must start now*. At the end of one year of this regime, we have not heard of any single small project, or even taking initial steps towards starting a project. If some projects have really been initiated, the public should have been informed of them which would have created confidence and trust in the government.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even before the announcement of election results, there was news that Pakistan’s top industrialists, economic and finance experts have joined hands together and have already formed an economic council that will advise the government for planning and various ways for economic development in the country. One year has gone by and we do not see any sign of any planning or program.

 

One of the greatest hurdles in our way has been the lack of money. God helped us and through the efforts of our friendly countries like Turkey,Qatar, Saudi Arabia(MBS made promises but never fulfilled them till today) IMF, World Bank and Islamic Bank, plus revenue created by our own indigenous means like taxes etc. we have now at least some money which should enable us to at least make a start. Only China has provided substantial aid and Qatar transferred money to the State Bank of Pakistan to avert a financial meltdown.

 

We look forward to you to bring about a change in Pakistan and create a new Pakistan. You have shown hope and a dream to the people of Pakistan. You owe them an actualization of their hopes and dreams. They are keeping their lonely eyes full of hope on you and your Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf team. Please don’t let them down.

 

Rakhyo Ghalib mujhe is talkh navai se maaf

Aaj kuchh dard mere dil mein siva hota hai.

 

Dua Go

* Editor’s Note-President Xi Jinping has used this approach of creating a huge number of jobs for the unemployed in development projects-especially in the housing and urban infrastructure development sectors, which has made China an economic and industrial powerhouse.

RETURN OF THE NATIVE

 

 

 

 

RETURN OF THE NATIVE

 

Mustafa Kamal, the ex-Nazim of Karachi, has staged a come back on March 3, 2016, to Karachi, after a sojourn of three and a half years. His return to the political scene at this juncture has created quite a stir in social and political circles of Karachi in particular and of Pakistan in general. Actually it would have been better if he returned before the local bodies elections recently held in Sindh province.

 

Mustafa Kamal is well-known for his honesty, sincerity, devotion and capability to deliver. Whatever good work and development we see in Karachi is the result of his planning and hard work.

 

According to the up-coming news its heartening to know that he has returned to his native place with a great will to re-start his work from where he had left, hopefully with better planning and devotion. It goes without saying that MQM, with its deeds, has earned only a bad name for itself as well as for the country. To put it in a nut-shell, it was a dire need of the time to launch an organization to fight peacefully for genuine rights of the Urdu speaking Muhajirs. But what they have given is a tarnished image of Muhajirs, causing great humiliation and shame to them and in fact to the whole country.

 

Perhaps our own misdeeds invited scourge from God. The period of scourge now seems to be over and its time for remorse and re-examination of our conduct followed by reform and reconstruction. An opportunity has presented itself which demands making an assessment of the situation and responding accordingly.

 

I make an earnest appeal to all who stand for justice and fairplay to join hands and extend their full support to Mustafa Kamal and his associates, in any way they can, to make this mission a real success. Let everyone of us, irrespective of his/her faith, ethinicity and provincial affinity, give full moral support and co-operation to this move.

 

Let the new party, to be announced shortly in future, not be against MQM (Muttahida Qaumi Movement) or its chief and let it not aim to break it up. It may continue to function and have its own way. If the new party has good and sincere workers, the people will surely support it. It is important, however, that only sincere and patriotic persons are welcome to join the party, and those found otherwise in future, should be expelled.

 

Let this forthcoming organization be a platform for all of us to work together to revive peace, prosperity and welfare in Sindh province and to the whole country. Let us (with the help of God Almighty) bring back the identity of Karachi as a city of lights and a portal for employment and opportunity for the people coming from all parts of the country. If we are sincere in our objective and efforts God Almighty will be with us and we will get divine help to achieve our goal.
