Imtiaz | 9 years ago | Reply Pakistan in her 63 years of Existence had almost 40 years of Army rule and democracy as I would put it was never given any chance and when it was, we labeled it ‘sham democracy\’ without ever thinking of consequences,it took Pakistan at least decades back, back to square one with nothing in hand, having to call foreigners to run our economy with actions that later slit the Economic throat of country herself, having to invite a war which initially wasn’t even ours but we still fought. 63 years of Pakistan’s history is nothing compared to world’s other successful nations, It took America 200 years herself to be where she is today, The history is in front of us, America was never a democracy, was in fact initially the same feudal society where gangs, ethnicities, personal grudges, territorial control of certain regional economic places was everything, followed by the period of Neo-feudalism to which I believe Pakistan is suffering from as well. Now the question is if US took 200 years to gain this status, how we can get in hardly 25 years of trembling democracy. Pakistan needs much more time have a well, strong and dynamic democracy.
