United We Stand, Divide We Fall

Today the basic, biggest and the most important problem of Pakistan is the division of Pakistanis on the basis of provinces, languages, casts and Religious denominations. One can say that this is not a big issue, but this is the biggest issue. Representing different political ideologies is not a division, but we have to understand that first we all are Pakistanis under one flag then something else. Quaid-e-Azam once said "We can look to the future with robust confidence provided we do not relax and fritter away our energies in internal dissensions. There was never a greater need for discipline and unity in our ranks. It is only with united effort and faith in our destiny that we shall be able to translate the Pakistan of our dreams into reality." Just have a glimpse on the history of Pakistan after the death of Quaid-e-Azam, you can easily judge that many rulers (Civil and Military) came and went having different ideologies, but the way they opt to rule this country was common among all the previous and current rulers. Just guess!! What was the trick??? It was one and only strategy "Divide and rule".
The ruling elite/ruling class of this country is very clever, publically they pretend to be divided but privately they are united. They divide the common Pakistani into, Baloch, Sindi, Pakhtoon, Punjabi, Siraiki, muhajir, Sunni, Shia etc, So that they can rule us easily we the common Pakistanis are divided but the ruling class is united to destroy this country and common Pakistani. These rulers protect their own interests. They even don't know what national interests are?? And what national interest means??? This ruling elite includes civil and military bureaucracy and so called representatives of people of Pakistan. Actually these so called representatives of Pakistan are puppets of the civil and military bureaucracy. The old, used, and failed politicians and political parties who got chance to rule this country, separately or in coalitions, they successfully divided us on different basis. Just think that why these politicians always fight publically but privately they eat in one plate and drink in one glass??If these old and failed politicians and establishment can be united, why can't we be united against them? No doubt Pakistan has diversity in ethnicities, but Pakistan has one ideology and we can be united for the sake of prosperous and developed Pakistan.
“Come forward as servants of Islam organize the people economically, socially, educationally and politically and I am sure that you will be a power that will be accepted by everybody.” Quaid-e-Azam said in his Presidential Address at the All India Muslim League, Lahore on March 23, 1940. This was the dream of our great leader about the future of Pakistan, that Pakistanis will be recognized one day in the whole world as scientists, educationists and economists. Today Pakistan is the opposite of what Quaid dreamed. Famous saying of Quaid is "Unity, Faith and discipline" which is the beauty of our syllabus books but we never implemented it individually in our lives or as a nation in our lives. Pakistan is facing a lot of problems because of mismanagement in governance and corruption of the ruling elite, and We have been unable to be united against this fragile
Governments whether they are legal, civilian and so called democratic governments or illegal and undemocratic military Governments. We have to decide that we want Quaid's Pakistan or the present Pakistan. since the independence of this country many Governments came and went but every Government failed to provide basic necessities to the citizens, These Governments have failed to protect this country by external and internal threats,  and failed to give security to the citizens of Pakistan. This is the time to be united against these failed political parties and chose the best option that has never been tested. The main hurdle in uniting this nation is the old and failed political parties. These parties will never unite people because it will be against their own personal interests.
We lost half of Pakistan in 1971; the main reason was that we the common people were not united against the ruling elite. The ruler kept us on dark side and broke this country in two pieces. We the people of Pakistan never came out on road to agitate against the illegal military operation in Bengal. So in the result when we woke up, there was a new country in the map this world named as "Bangladesh". But After even a big shock we never tried to be united against these rulers. Pakistan is going down and down every day, but we are sleeping and waiting for some magic. This magic will never happen. We have to finish the differences between us and be united.
Just have a look on recent happenings in Karachi, We lost more than 200 lives in 4 days just for two seats of MQM in AJK Legislation Assembly. Was this the cost of two seats??? Hundred innocent lives for one seat in assembly??? What a shame. If still we will sleep and wait for some magic then this will never end and results will be more disastrous. Poor and common Pakistani will continue losing their precious lives and ruling class will be on official and private tours to London and USA. Just try to understand that our strength is unity and our weakness is disintegration.
When I look around the political parties, Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf is the last ray of hope for the betterment and prosperity of Pakistan. He is brave enough to fight with establishment and he is the only leader who has never been a slave of establishment. He is clean and honest; he has proved it in the case of Shaukat Khanam Hospital. When we will be united, no one can harm us and no one can be imposed on us to rule.
