I don’t know what the hell is wrong with our de facto and de jure leadership; it has been unable to realize a fact that even a primary student can grasp. What is the cause of crime and terrorism? – The answer is simple ‘’Poverty and ignorance.’’ And the corrupt elite which is responsible for keeping the society poor and ignorant is enjoying the perks and privileges, and is safeguarded by the ironic hands of the establishment (system), and is regarded as noble. While the poor’s, and those who speak against this undeclared tyranny, and those bitten by this malicious system, and the other victims of this historical military-feudal alliance, are declared as traitors.
Please don’t take me wrong. When I say military I mean its leadership which got allied with sluggish feudal elements. I never blame our brave soldiers fighting at borders to secure our geography. Are they securing geography which can only nurture a few capitalists…? Moreover, I Might have supported the military involvement in politics if it had established a true authoritarian set-up exterminating the hegemony of FEUDAL/CAPITALIST class; But instead of weakening the feudal elements our military got in cahoots with these corrupt FEUDAL / WADEERAS / CAPITALISTS. Their alliance gave rise to a new sort of political system that can be termed as neo-feudalism; Neo-feudalism comprised of traditional feudal lords, new capitalists along with civil and military bureaucracy. This is not enough; the clergy mindset adds more beauty to the ideological degeneration of our society.
It is evident from the history that every society passes through two different stages until it reaches to democracy. The first two stages are feudalism and authoritarian rule. Here the authoritarian rule is the most crucial one as it acts as a bridge between feudalism and democracy. A society gets rid of tyranny and hegemony of feudal class when the authoritarian rule is established by a strong ruler. It is the stage when national-level institutions evolve, economic imbalance reduces, and private influence of feudal lords and clergy diminishes. It is, in fact, the rule of institutions rather than the rule of feudal elements. But unfortunately this never happened in our society; we remained under the cruel clutches of aristocrats. The worst part is that the clerics kept us blind and never inspired to agitate against this aristocracy.
Unfortunately, we lost our two national-level leaders soon after independence, M Ali Jinnah and Liaqat Ali Khan. We left with no personality who can lead us with a countrywide approach; at this stage, the military played its natural role and took all the state affairs in its hand. It was time for the military to define the direction of the country. It was supposed to establish a pure authoritarian set-up exterminating the influence of clerical and feudal mindsets as both would harm the social dynamics of the country. Our society was not mature enough to conform to a parliamentary democratic system – But alas! Our military leadership in different eras got fooled by clergy and inspired by politicians and sometimes got inspired by clergy and fooled by politicians forgetting its real role i.e. the establishment of an authoritarian rule.
The economic disparity in any society is the major cause of all social evils. When a few corrupt people plunder most resources then the crime is the only option left for others. The corruption of few makes everyone morally weak; subjects become thieves, dacoits, liars, mean and dishonest. The worst of all, the corrupt elite which is responsible for ruining society is regarded as respectable and noble. Ridiculously, nobody feels honor sitting with a petty thief after he is accused of theft, but people feel honor inviting a corrupt aristocrat to their drawing room and sharing SELFIES around social media. This is the worst form of our moral degeneration and mental slavery.
How all that is linked to international terrorism? Firstly, any sort of crime including terrorism is, in fact, a direct and indirect form of class conflict; this class conflict may be deliberate or accidental. The proletarian class, poor and commoners join up to resist the dominance of the elite in this class conflict. Moreover, a society, nation or country which has a huge gap between the poor and rich is more vulnerable to be used by terrorist networks and their financers. The poor can be easily attracted and used by foreign enemies/agencies. This is how poverty makes them terrorists. In addition to this, the clergy mindset further enhances their ignorance creating a complete mixture of disaster. I think they (poor) should not be blamed; those who created this gap are the real culprits. When common citizens are denied justice what options they are left with….?
Although time travel is not achievable and we cannot go back in time to change the past but we can do reforms to improve our present. The ESTABLISHMENT should remain firm in its decisions backing the government to suppress the corrupt elements. Any sort of negligence at this stage would cause unbearable damages. It would be unjust to deny the serious efforts of government and establishment for the eradication of corruption in recent years. But this perception has been fading day by day when we observe corrupt capitalists fleeing the country one by one through undeclared deals and NROs. Surprisingly, when everyone was expecting exemplary punishments for the corrupt capitalists they are being given exclusive acquittals and bails. This seems to be a similar practice when massive accountability was promised in the past eras and then the whole process was sabotaged due to unknown reasons.
If similar sort of undeclared deals (MUKMUKKA or NRO) continues then there will be nothing left instead of hopelessness: direct, indirect, deliberate and accidental class conflict may aggravate. People can tolerate inflation but will accept any type of relief in favor of corrupt FEUDAL / CAPITALISTS / WADERRAS. Moreover, if we cannot secure the future of masses then aristocrats will not be safe either. Nobody can live freely and securely unless we remove economic disparity. This is the message we learn from all Holy Scriptures. These scriptures advise us to establish a Government of God, the rule of law, equal resources and justice for all. Now it is up to us that we make our country heaven for all or just a casino for the RICH/CAPITALISTS.
No religion teaches us to get ruined and f***ed by capitalists in this world and demand justice/heaven in the hereafter. F***ed means fooled, not what you might be thinking.
