PostSubject: BEWILDERMENT OF DEMOCRACY   Sat Oct 20, 2007 10:01 am

THE GEO-POLITICAL ARENA IN PAKISTAN GIVES US A HOPE THAT PAKISTANI NATION HAS REAWAKENED AFTER A DEEP SLUMBER.PAKISTAN HAS SEEN ENOUGH TAUMA IN HER LIFE AND NEEDS A RESPITE. THE REMOVAL & RESTORATION OF CHIEF JUSTICE LED TO THIS REAWAKENING.WHEN WE GO THROUGH THE HISTORY OF PAKISTAN A FEW FACES APPEAR ON OUR POLITICAL CHESS BOARD.MUSLIM LEAGUE HAS HER ROOTS IN COMBINED INDIA, THERE FORE,SOME GOOD LEADERS EMERGED ON THE POLITICAL SCENARIO.THE DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY AUGERS POLITICAL PARTIES TO PLAY A SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN ARTICULATING CITIZEN'S ASPIRATIONS.THEY SEEK POLITICAL SUPPORT & TRUST TO SERVE AS A VITAL LINK BETWEEN STATE & SOCIETY.ALL MAJOR POLITICAL PARTIES IN PAKISTAN INDULGE IN A DEMOCRATIC MAL-PRACTICE BY SELF-NOMINATION OF PARTY LEADERS AS LIFE TIME CHAIR PERSONS.OUR POLITICAL LEADERS HAVE NO PERSONAL VISION OR AGENDA---PARTY AGENDA IS PREPARED ONCE AND FOLLOWED THROUGH OUT THEIR POLITICAL CAREER.THE TRACK RECORD OF OUR POLITICAL LEADERS CREATE A WIDE SPREAD IMPRESSION OF NON-CREDIBILITY IN THE AREAS OF NATIONAL SECURITY.THE ROLE PLAYED BY BENAZIR, NAWAZ SHARIF AND ALTAF HUSSAIN IS AN OPEN SECRET.THEY OPENLY DISCUSS PAKISTAN'S SECURITY ISSUES WITH AMERICAN,EUROPIAN AND ABOVE ALL INDIAN MEDIA. A SOLUTION TO MANAGE OUR SECURITY & IDEOLOGICAL ISSUES IS TO INSTITUTIONALIZE THE ROLE OF ARMY IN SMOOTH GOVERNANCE OF THE COUNTRY.A GUIDED DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM WILL LEAD US TO PERMANENT & EFFECTIVE DEMOCRACY.IT IS IMPORTANT FOR OUR NATIONAL SECURITY THAT MILITARY BE ALLOWED A LIMITED ROLE IN RUNNING THE STATE AFFAIRS. NATIONAL SECURITY IS AN IDEAL INSTITUTION FOR THIS PURPOSE. THERE IS A NEED OF A PARADIGM SHIFT IN THE MIND-SET OF OUR POLITICAL LEADERS.MORE OVER,REGULAR ELECTIONS WITHIN THE PARTIES SHOULD BE ENSURED.INSTEAD OF ALLOWING A REGULAR SWAP-OVER BY OUR TRIED & TRUSTED POLITICAL LEADERS, WE MUST ENCOURAGE YOUNG AND VISIONARY LEADERSHIP. A COMMON MAN IN PAKISTAN WANTS JUSTICE, SELF RESPECT AND SATISFACTION OF HIS BASIC NEEDS TO SURVIVE.KEEPING IN VIEW THE GEO-POLITICAL SITUATION IN PAKISTAN, IT IS SUGGESTED THAT WE SHOULD REVERT BACK TO THE PRESIDENTIAL SYSTEM IN PAKISTAN.PRESIDENTIAL SYSTEM SUITS PAKISTAN DUE TO ITS GEO -STRATEGIC POSITION & GLOBAL CHALLENGES.MORE- OVER, TWO PARTY SYSTEM IS IDEAL BECAUSE MULTI-PARTY POLITICAL SYSTEM CREATES POLITICAL INSTABILITY AND WEEK GOVERNMENT DEPENDING UPON COALITIONS. OUR POLITICAL CLASS IS BASICALLY MADE UP OF FEAUDAL LORDS. THEIR TOP PRIORITY REMAINS THEIR SELF & LOCAL INTEREST RATHER THAN NATIONAL INTEREST.THE ROAD TO DEMOCRACY HAD TO BE INCREMENTAL WITH MILITARY SETTING THE BOUNARIES OF WHAT IS POLITICALLY FEASIBLE AND THE POLITICAL LEADERS & JUDICIARY TO MAKE ENTRANTS INTO THE LEALMS OF POLITICAL POWER.INSTEAD OF BEING TOO AGGRESSIVE & VIOLENT, THE MOVERS & SHAKERS OF THE MOVEMENT FOR RESTORATION OF DEMOCRACY SHOULD LET THE SUPREME COURT & BALLOT BOX BE THE DECIDING ACTOR FOR THE BETTER INTEREST OF PAKISTAN. MAY GOD BLESS OU SHNI DHERT AND GIVE "HIDAYAT" TO OUR POLITICAL GOD FATHERS TO ADOPT THE POLICY OF LIVE AND LET OTHERS LIVE PEACE FULLY.

The democracy wil remain in bewilderment unless the basic objectives of creation of this country are not pursued in all sicerity
1- Establishment of a true system of Islamic governance
2- Crash programme of educating the masses with special emphasis on ethics and morality.
3- Purging the existing system of education of evil and corrupt practices.
4- The education has become prohibtive presently for a common man, specially the quality education and higher education which at present has been made a prerogative of moneyed class. It should be made affordable to the lowest tier of the society. It should not be money making business.
5- To establish an effective system of social justice wherin the job the judges would be only to declare who is right and who is wrong . It should not for the judge to worry that true justice may create anarchy etc. Let forces of nature decide the outcome of a just decision. No room for doctrine of necessity.
5- Military may have very limited role in the government as a watch dog to see that the decisions of the government are implemented. There should be no room for military take over.
6- To place an effective and fool proof system of Accountability.[b]
