Corruption! A word, the most common word in our society and system. We all are used to listen to this word every day. And now we have become such a used to this words that we even do not notice its intensity. Corruption is not only a bribe or embezzlement. Breaking pledge and trust are also a corruption. Here I am not talking about the kind of personal matters. It happens in everyone’s life here I am talking about corruption in our system and society.
Corruption is an extremely contagious disease which devours and gulps the whole society and demolishes the system. Now the question is that why the corruption is so common here in our system and society. Why it’s so common that no feeling emerges or arise inside ourselves while listening to this word.
The rulers yes, the rulers are the basic reason. The rulers of our homeland, they are not at all willing prevent the country from corruption.
How strange and ridiculous is the statement of our prime minister that if we focus on the elimination of corruption we could not pay attention to national development. Nobody was there to tell him the development takes place automatically if the corruption is eradicated from a country? In fact, these rulers are habitual corrupt people who has turned the whole society corrupt for their own gain. They know very well that by making the whole system corrupt they can achieve the filthy goals. On the other hand, the justice system is also now with them. More than that the all those institutions which are nourished by the blood of society are no more willing to inculcate this issue.
Struggle against any social evil depends upon the ethical standards of the society while I can perceive clearly our society is lacking all those standards. Now most dangerous thing is that every individual of our society has such a thinking that other all should be changed while not willing to change himself.
It is the time to think about this social attitude. Our generations are going to bear the consequences if these attitudes are not changed as soon as possible. Now it is the time to take action and to be practical against corruption not to deliver speeches and dialogues.
Our country is full of sources and resources. Iron gold, copper, uranium, oil, gas every and all natural resources are blessed by Allah the almighty. We all could be very rich but few people who are responsible for the corruption and they are themselves corrupt has destroyed the whole system.
And for this, a leader is needed. A true and honest leader is needed. Although corrupt mafia has become very strong and it has its very deep roots but still hope is there. But all this depends on the individual of our society. Until and unless public does not realize and recognizes its right role corruption cannot be eliminated from our society. We all the people of Pakistan should understand that we will have to get stand against this corruption mafia. We will have to sacrifice for it. We should be now ready to sacrifice anything for it. Let’s promise with ourselves that we will not remain silent anymore. We will all struggle hard against this corrupt mafia and corruption. Otherwise very soon we will be having no respect in other countries for the world. May Allah bless us with a true and honest leader.
