People of Pakistan. A Comparison.

So, i often thought why people of Pakistan are so quick to provoke. Why do they lose their temper so quickly? Why they are not patient and discipline. Why dont they follow rules? Why that Pakistan is a country where dirt originates, traffic is a complete mess and most importantly there is no respect for your fellow citizens. Well, everybody may approach the issue in their own way. Some might object that’s not the case. Some may agree with me. I still cannot comprehend the attitude associated issues with people. After thinking for some time I still couldn’t reach to a conclusion behind this mess.

After living in UK for the past 6 month I can already tell the problem isn’t with the country. It never was. The problem is not with the people either. Ever since i was little i remember seeing everything in Pakistan as a joke from the candy corner to the rules that ought to be abiding by the road users. So then, is the problem related to the management who failed to comply and enforce it successfully onto the nation? There is more to it than that. Everything in Pakistan is about money. The country is in such a state that no one cares about the rules and regulations let alone follow them. It all comes down to the Government. Let me give you an example. I was on my way back to London from Manchester. The coach i was in announced that seatbelt is absolutely necessary and anyone who found without wearing it will be fine £200. That is bloody too much considering the ticket only cost £25. The end result was everyone had to wear it. There were no exceptions.  Similarly, there are fines and penalty for breaking the law elsewhere and the fine may go up to £1000. With that amount of money haunting you, one wouldn’t dare to do anything stupid unless its a drunk or an idiot. The emphasis here is that there are hard set rules and everyone follows them otherwise u get knocked cold by the Government.

So why is Pakistan so different? Why are the people always in a rush? So eager that the cant even stand in a proper line or park properly? The problem is so deep that you may find yourself digging it until to the very core of the earth. The problem is the corrupt Government. Like they say ‘Money is the root to the evilest way’. Its the money and power that has completely blinded the higher ranks. One such example, i should say prime example, is Zardari. Anyone who does something wrong gets away with it either because he has contacts or he is extremely rich.

I could write on more but for some reason im getting frustrated and angry. I should stop here. Its a pity i have to go back to that country.
