It is said that before the creation of a country, an Ideological Nation is needed but if it is a Group of Ethnicities then no Ideology can bring them on one page. It’s been almost 64 Years since Pakistan came into being, but still after 63 years I see people from different Ethnicities, Culture, Language & Backgrounds sharing the same land. If this is why Pakistan came into being then what was wrong in sharing a land with Hindus and taking a separate land where one nation (Muslims), can live together. I believe still after 63 Years we do not know the right reason why we came into being otherwise we, instead of being known as Pathans, Punjabis, Sindhis and Balochis, would be living as Pakistanis. The only reason for opting to take a separate land was;
“Hindu India and Muslim India must be separated. Because the two nations are entirely distinct and different and in some matters antagonistic to each other. Let me tell you some of the differences. We differ in our history, culture, language, architecture, music, laws, jurisprudence, calendar and our entire social fabric and code of life – Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah – 1947“
There had been something always in fashion in Pakistan that has taken away people’s attention. In 70’s it was “ Protestants Culture “ ,then in the 80’s it was ” Jihadist Culture” , later in 90’s it was a transitional period from Extremism to Nationalism, last but not the least from 2000 to 2010 , it was a time when people showing love to your land became a fashion. In this span of time a lot of fakes stood up and pretended to be Patriotic but in real they were those “Intellectual Morons” who wanted to convert Patriotism into Fascism and made this as a Fad.

Today, most of so-called patriots are just attention seekers and nothing else. They cannot do anything for their country but they will show a lot of patriotism, passion, love and madness for the land but in real they do not know what they really want out of all this. They are self confused and they even inject this viral infection of being liberal to others as well. They take examples from Islam and incorporate them with their liberal views & practices. Why do they do so? Is there any hidden agenda behind all this? Is all this done intentionally or unintentionally? Are they really serious about playing their part for the betterment of the land or is it just a words game? What do they really want from Pakistan or from Pakistanis? There will be very few people who could answer this but if I share my personal opinion then I would say that they all are attention seekers and nothing else, as if they were patriotic enough so we would not be suffering from poor leadership, corruption, bad governance, electricity crisis, price hike and so many similar challenges.

They are unworthy to show gratitude for this Pakland as they are nothing other than bunch of losers who claim to be patriots but in reality they are not. Only reason why they opted to become patriots is just because these days “Loving Pakistan” is in “Fashion”. They cannot sacrifice anything for this land or for this nation and they would rather prefer their personal benefits over national Interests and similar people come into politics and never let those true patriots come forward who sincerely wants to serve their country. A good example of true patriot would be those 1.4 million Muslims who never reached this land after partition of Greater India into two parts or those who stood by with their leadership
“Patriots always talk of dying for their country and never of killing for their country – Bertrand Russel”
Now it’s up to us that how we express our patriotism and how we want to pursue all this and how we want our future leaders to be.
