What plagues Pakistan?

[Longhorn Review] What plagues Pakistan?

Material Type: All, Books — Tags: Pakistan, plagues, what — Posted on June 1, 2010, 11:56 am

By: Bhatti, Tanvir Hussain

The writer Mr Tanvir Hussain Bhatti has shown awareness to his surroundings and
day to day events in and around Pakistan. He has also related these events to
economic and political situation prevailing in the country. At relevant places he
has suggested how to cope with problems and be a part of solution. He represents to
me a good example of concerned citizen and we need more of this type.

“What Plagues
Pakistan?” is no doubt a potpourri of various problems and difficulties that the
state of Pakistan is facing and which have not received due attention at the hands
of state functionaries and nor of civil society. These issues must be answered. I am
sure that publication of these articles in the form of a book will trigger debate,
and be a catalyst for change.

I am happy Mr.Tanvir is not neutral to wrongs, and
holds a clear bias against what is unjust and unfair. He expresses himself loudly
against those who are and were responsible for the present environment of despair.

Mr.Tanvir Bhatti will do well to avoid prolixity in his future writings and I will
recommend him now to also write about sunshine aspects of Pakistan. We are no doubt
facing problems as mentioned by him but we also have great opportunities awaiting
us. Let us explore them. I find the youth of Pakistan a great source of energy and
hope. I find greater awareness amongst the masses. I find people of Pakistan are
respectable and generous. So if there is bad news, there is good news too.
