CAN WE CALL PAKISTAN A CIVILIZED NATION?

image

Present-day Pakistan has miles to go before it can be safely called a civilized nation, let alone a Civilizational State like its parent, the Indus Valley Civilization.

What went wrong?

Since Pakistan’s evolutionary process has remained stunted by repeated military coups and wars, the depth of research, experience, political continuity, and wealth necessary to reach the jump-ramp of acivilizational statenever came to be.

What is the meaning of a “civilized nation”?

A civilized nation is defined as an internationally recognized geographical entity that,

  • Incrementally reaches significant urbanization,
  • Social and professional stratification,
  • The luxury of leisure time, and
  • Advancements in arts
  • Advancement in Sciences

This is also referred to as an advanced culture.

The Muslim Mughal Empire, Pakistan’s spiritual guide, was very close to being called a civilization, with the exception of democratic continuity – and that led to its eventual demise.

Meaning of Civility, Justice, and the Rule of Law

Being civilized is synonymous with civilité in French jurisprudence , meaning thereby

  • Law and order,
  • Government and
  • Administration enforced by a legitimate government to protect the vulnerable from the powerful.

In Pakistan, the powerful protect themselves from the weak hordes through ridiculous laws.

  • See,Quaid e Azam Quotes

International Principles of Fairness and Justice

Article 38 of International court of justice statutes on the principle of law recognized by civilized nations includes principles of fairness and justice like

  • Laches,
  • Good faith,
  • Res judicata,

These principles give a reasonable opportunity for justice in society to all its inhabitants, irrespective of caste, color, creed, gender, or faith – that has never happened.

None of these is truly practiced in the poor quality judicial institution of Pakistan.

“Doctrine of Necessity” is a documented clause in Pakistani jurisprudence that essentially means to bend Laws to accommodate the powerful.

Pakistan as a civilized nation

Professionalism in Pakistan

A civilized nation has professionals minding their own job and the system giving them an incentive to excel in their chosen field.

Pakistani people have so many unproductive distractions that they are interested in everything, except their own assigned job.

Brutalized Pakistani Society

To be civilized is to never have to use force with your population, as only political means should theoretically be enough to resolve irritants.

Pakistanis exercising their human right have been whipping, extra-judicially killed, jailed, and outright murdered by regressive groups.

Severely vulnerable State of Pakistan

Then civilized nations are invulnerable tooutside pressure, as they incubate excellence in their people to find solutions in-house.

This happens when their people have empowerment, high-quality education, skill, sufficient wealth, health, the right to choose a sexual partner, and food.

Pakistan has none of these attributes.

Pakistan’s incorrect inspiration

Civilized nations, self-correct through their institutions and seek inspiration from other civilized countries.

Pakistan elite till recently identified with Arab despotic nations.

Pakistan’s experimentation with religion

Civilization is when the people realize that religion is a means to their personal happiness and becomes toxic when it is ritualized through the government.

Pakistani establishment doesn’t have the faintest idea of what I have just said and is deliberately exploitative through religion.

Pakistan’s contribution to the World

A country is civilized when its people contribute to the world’s body of knowledge through research that betters people’s lives and makes the earth more livable.

Pakistani elite doesn’t believe they need to be part of a global community, otherwise, there will be accountability – which they abhor.

The apathy towards research on society and the environment is criminal.

  • “No idea single idea has been more important than… the idea of progress in western civilization for nearly three thousand years” Robert Nisbet.

Liberty, Justice, Equality, and community are a close second.

Pakistan has none of the above, except maybe insular communities.

Pakistan’s end product is defective

People categorize civilized countries through their end product – their people.

Pakistan is producing bigoted, untrustworthy, partially literate, frustrated, unskilled,misogynistic menwhose only purpose in life is to dominate and exploit women and others.

A “good living” has never been taught to Pakistanis.
