Pakistan does not have a single problem; there are myriad of them, and each of them is gigantic. To name a few, education, medical, poverty, jobs, social issues, injustice, politicians, army etc etc. and above all the people and their grossly unrealistic expectations.
The biggest problem in Pakistan among all is that people waiting in the hope of some Messiah to arrive and solve the problems in a blink of an eye. This problem alone is enough to fail the country. On practical grounds, moreover, the masses fail to convey their wishes and desires to the elected/about to be elected members. There more emphasis on flaunting some affinity with a politician in any possible sense.
Given this problem alone, Pakistan is around 300-500 years behind where the West stands now.
In order to demand a right one has to know about the right first, and to know that, the meaning of the latter has to be known. Here, on one hand as the people are fed up of dictatorship (as they are possibly told to be), on the other hand the meaning of democracy in grossly misunderstood. The meaning of democracy possibly tantamounts to having a military ruler dethroned. At the same time it is known to few that the top bidders to the throne of Islamic Empire of Pakistan have their children’s destinies entwined to the political parties they head.
Here the psyche of people of Pakistan is of particular interest. People are very “icon-o-philic”. They love huge figures. Once they love someone, they will remain loyal forever; defiance is not an option, no matter how many times their own trust is betrayed. And ever-lasting love ensues from a mixed feeling of fear and a severe inferiority complex.
It sounds as if rest of the problems pertaining to Pakistan are here to stay for a long time, as long as the people as a whole dont learn to expect in the effective manner.
