Are strikes even effective in Pakistan?
Written By: Shahzeb Hussain
Anything that goes wrong people are bound to be upset over it. It’s human nature, when you don’t agree with something, you’re going to let your emotions out and disagree to whatever bothered you in the first place. However, there are better and positive ways to let out such emotions, ways that will secure a footing to what you stand for and make a statement that can be set as an example for the rest of the world.
In Pakistan, every time the public is unhappy with something, emotions are let out in ways that only do harm rather than any good, and to what purpose? The only thing they do is, contribute to the destruction of their city, and give themselves and the country a bad name for the rest of the world.
See in Pakistan every time there’s a strike, people like to burn things such as, shops, tires, cars, busses, and for what? What exactly are they achieving? If anything it’s only setting themselves back a few steps. Tell me what good will burning a shop do? If anything it’s going to make an honest man cry for all the hard work he did to open that shop, or have one less person contributing to the troubled economy.
What is burning busses going to get you? Nothing. If anything it will affect “you” the public. One less bus on the road, and who uses that bus? You do. So if you think about it, all you’re doing is making things worse for yourselves and taking things away from yourselves.
See the world doesn’t think much of our beloved country. We know why we love Pakistan, and we know just how wrong the media’s got it about us. But when you the people of the country itself go out on these rampages, what else are they supposed to do? Show the world, that we’re the perfect beings on earth? See the media needs reasons to defame Pakistan and its people, because all they care about is the ratings. But why are we giving them these reasons? Why are we being the cause of our downfall?
What are all these strikes, proving? Are they even effective? Some would say to a certain extent that they are, but there’s more damage being done that progress.
The people of Pakistan are a smart bunch, they know what they want. Though the way they go about to getting those things is wrong, because, saner heads have prevailed.
So what do you think? Are these strikes effective? Do they achieve anything?
Let us know!
