”We are now all Pakistanis–not Baluchis, Pathans, Sindhis, Bengalis, Punjabis and so on–and as Pakistanis, we must feet behave and act, and we should be proud to be known as Pakistanis and nothing else” ~Quaid-e-Azam.
Today we all have forgot the above quoted saying of Baba-e-Qaum and discriminate each other on regional basis. This discrimination is not just done by the common public but even by our government officials and political leaders who are administrating this country.
The point to consider is that we people our fighting with each other on the provincial issues and not coping with each other to solve bigger issues that will lead our country to the road of prosperity and peace. Instead of giving preference to those projects which are more beneficial for the whole country, the provincial authorities support those projects which are rewarding them and their province only.
Just talk about the Kalabagh Dam. The Kalabagh dam is a proposed hydroelectric dam on the Indus River at Kalabagh in Mianwali District of the Punjab province in Pakistan. The project has been controversial since its inception. Every province have different point of view and makes comparisons about the benefits that other provinces will get out of that and don’t consider the outcomes that this dam will give to our economy, on the whole. The massive energy crisis can be reduced to great extent and this will revive our textile and other industries, collapsed because of power shortages and results in high level of employments and will help to stabilize the economy.
We need to get united under one flag to regain our dignity in the world.
