Imran Khan’s Vision: Fears vs Hope
Recently, some of my friends had an interesting little debate on IK’s vision. I would like to share that with you. One of the friend suggested that we should support IK’s vision, which is to make Pakistan a welfare state, break the begging bowl, stand-up to the world for our rights, get out of this war on terror and so on. The other friend critically replied:
“Some politicians win power and do not know what to do with it. Others come to the office determined to change everything and end up doing nothing. Anonymous.
Just compare Imran Khan’s wisdom with others and then decide whom should you support? I am not saying that NS or AZ or any other politician in Pakistan is better than him, but what I am saying is don’t follow/support him, otherwise you will be utterly disappointed. His contribution in Health and Education cannot be denied but him being focussed on power shows that he is not going to change anything i.e. end up doing nothing.”
Here is the reply from another friend of mine:
“In my opinion, the quote is pretty childish. Where does this quote apply by the way? In principal and reality, a politician who wins power knows very well what to do with it, as they are not kids, whether it is NS or AZ or any General.
In Pakistan when people do power shows and do not deliver our hatred may be worth to keep in hearts, but now someone (IK) delivered unprecedentedly without any lust and did power shows, which may be political reflex actions and nothing much. Why are we behaving like “alerted” or projecting 8th grade hopeless quotes? In the current system if you want angels to rule your president office, I bet people of Pakistan would first ask the angel “Can you show us the power of speed of light or bring us some treasures from beneath the earth or first at least show us the power of rain, wind, or may be some would ask about arms etc. and then we will vote you.” I may have dogmatic claims in this reply but I am done with hopelessness. It’s a Kufr Allah says and we do believe in Him. He may have sent some hope in someone. So whom should we follow/support my brothers – our fears or hope. Definitely hope.”
This is the way forward. Keep the hopes alive and forget about the fears stopping us to progress. What is your answer to the above quote? Share it below.
