Democracy or Islamic Law.

One of French philosopher said that the new generation always sit on the shoulders of the old generation and see coming events in the world and solve accordingly.
I think this is what needed in Pakistan now. All political parties need to stick to this and stop blaming the people who were in establishment before them. Every time we see that when a new party is elected, soon after coming in power a blame game starts and all previous establishments are blamed for all the losses.

Political scenario is also somewhat interesting as from 1965 few land lord and their generations are continuously coming in power after rotation of five years and sometime before that, because of dissolution of assemblies. 

People of Pakistan have no choice, but to vote PPP, PMLN, MQM etc. There were many Marshall Laws in Pakistan and even you will see some specific faces that will be also around in those years.

People have two views about the establishment. In opinion of one group of people, democratic establishment is better and other group stands for Marshall Law. Political parties claim that democratic system is perfect for the people.

Being a Muslim we believe in one God, one messenger Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and there is only one way to follow, the way written in book Holy Quran that descended from heavens during month of Ramadan and what is in hadith. These two have complete code of life till dooms day. Nowadays many object from around the world, this book was revealed 1400 years ago how the laws can be applicable to a totally changed world. Life style, needs , demands of society have completely changed. Even the duties of people are different from past.

I do not get this, I feel that the duties of parents, teachers, politicians are the same, but it can be said that the challenges are different now. It is claimed, how the orders of 1400 years ago can be applied now? God, who have created the world and is master of heavens, has kept an option for new laws, according to new challenges and the time. So we are given right to bring new laws that are in best interest on people but the change should be made according to teachings of Islam and no law should conflict the teachings. No one can claim that man made system of democracy is perfect. Only the system that was created by God is the one that can bring real change in society and save it from drowning. I think all the political party leaders sit back , analyze and try to hold the book and apply rules and they will see, how it will bring a real change.

Any protest with upbeat songs and dancing youth cannot bring any change for good. Pakistan came into existence on the name of Islam and people sacrificed their lives to live free according to law of Islam but the situation is totally different here.

If we see the facts then we can easily note that Pakistan came into existence before many other countries of the world but we cannot still progress on same rate. The main factor is political instability , economic crisis and this is because of failure of weak policies by establishment in the country. People of Pakistan are suffering from many decades because of clash between capitalists and feudal lords.
