Tribune Take: Predicting the future of Pakistan

Published: January 14, 2012

In today’s episode of the Tribune Take we look at T-Magazine’s cover story, “The Future of  Pakistan” – which is an interview with Dr Stephen P. Cohen, a Senior Fellow at the Washington DC-based think tank, the Brookings Institution.

Zarrar Khuhro, editor T-Magazine, takes us through the interview where Dr Cohen analyses the complex relationship between the military and the civilian government, emphasising the need for patience in terms of giving democracy some time to flourish in Pakistan.

Khuhro also discusses the predictions made by Dr. Cohen in his new book, “The Future of Pakistan.”

    The future of Pakistan is very bright, provided, the corrupt people are eliminated from the society.

    The day Pakistan will overcome the corrupt people who are eating Pakistan’s wealth as cancer; Pakistan will start shining among other nations of the world.

    Imran Khan has only one chance to eliminate the corruption. If he succeed in his first attempt, his tenure of government will come everlasting.

    @Mohammad Ali Siddiqui:
    If your plan is to be followed then most of us in this country will have to be eliminated. Its not these few thousand politicians but its the rest of us who are equally to blame. Its easier to find scrape goats then correct ourselves

    If Pakistanis decide to change themselves then only our country can be improved. If the awam and leaders continue with their current ways then we will keep going downhill.

    Salman Taseer killed by his own gaurd, no one even the powerful government sided with him, same should be done with a few currrupt politicians and the rest will understand, politicians are usually cowards and only understand the language of fear

    Pakistan is going to become a prosperous and developed country InshaAllah. People should remember that this a country whic is a victim of conspiracies both of its own and outsiders from day one. No other country has faced as many plots against its existance as Pakistan. Pakistan will prevail and become a strong country.
