We (Pakistani) are More Civilized!

We (Pakistani) are More Civilized!

We Pakistani are always label as uncivilized nation. We are intolerant, ill mannered. Still we are more civilized and brave as compare to other civilized nations. How? A nation deprive from the necessities of life. A country where food is not sufficient, access to clean water is a luxury. Shortage of electricity and gas, unfortunately has become a norm of the society… you name the problem, we have it.. Quality of life is pathetic rather miserable



In addition, when it comes to protest for our rights, we only burn few tyers, hold few play cards, banners, and a candle light vigil. We usually protest for few hours and then went back to our work. Next morning we all get up like a normal human being assuming that things are normal now. Reason being, we are peace-loving nation.



Now if we look at the most civilized nation “British society”. A society, which is bless with all the basic human rights. Where quality of life is like, one would dream to live in.  However, if we go back to last year’s riots of U.K. where the angry and anguish mob burned whole London, Manchester, Bristol, causing loss of billions. Their tolerance level becomes visible to rest of the world. The ambassador of peace miserably failed to deliver what they have been posing from ages.



Now who is more tolerant? More civilized? It is extremely difficult to survive in a country like Pakistan where political instability is a constant factor since its birth. A country, in which, religious extremism is at its peak. Having all the bad things, yet we the people of Pakistan celebrate our festivals with full zeal. Be it our Eid, Independence Day, Marriages, Birthdays, Political gatherings, New Year, 25 December and even cricket match. We are a happy nation in real sense.



We proudly stand among the bravest nations as we live in conditions no other nation could not even think of surviving. We have the strength and the power and above all, we have faith in ourselves. We are very forgiving nation. We always forgave the bad and ill of others, we only remember the good part. We are an optimistic nation.

    May be the writer is forgetting the the riots when BB was killed. The more civilised nation almost burned all of the Pakistan. Looted the banks, shops, burned the buses and cars( owned by poor public) And this is just one example.
    Term more civilised does not exist. it is civilised or uncivilised. And the sad truth is that we are actually less than uncivilised. We are a nation where we take law into our own hand (Remember the two brother got killed by mob in Sailkot). We don’t respect our law. (just go for a drive in any big city and see the law respecting citizens behave on the roads). We kill each other on the basis of the lengauge we speak( remember the target Killing in Karachi). Giving and receiving bribes is part of our culture. We take possession and claim ownership of the good don’t belong to us ( Land Mafia) and the icing on the cake is we elect a president who is a convicted criminal. So Mr Writer, Are we a civilised nation???

    People of Harappa?? I always thought,and Pakistanis had convinced me, their history began in 1947 and ended in 1971, less than 25 years as Maulana Azad had predicted years ago.

    Tonight, October 22, 2012 Mitt Romney, Presidential Candidate on national TV during a foreign policy debate with President Barack Obama referred to an “Uncivilized” Pakistan. Mitt Romney’s “uncivilized” assessment of Pakistan is pure elitism and marginalizes an entire nation of people.
