Pakistan's many challenges...By Shanza

Babies cry in all the villages of Pakistan because of hunger. Parents are afraid to send their children out to big cities due to the extreme fear that someone may shoot them or that someone may come near their children and commit suicide bombings. A joyous family cannot enjoy its holiday peacefully because of these extreme conditions in the city. A policeman fears to do his duty thinking that someone may kill him for being professional. A businessman fears investing some money in a new business when he thinks about the declining economy of Pakistan. International eyes are fixed on Pakistan whenever the word 'terrorism' pops up. The illiteracy rate continues to increase as the years pass by. The population increases every year but there is no increase in the resources needed to support the public. Almost every day, a drone attack occurs, killing militants and innocent people in the northern areas. The above mentioned scenarios are just slight glimpses of what is happening across Pakistan.
Pakistan has a lot of manpower and the talent hidden inside the minds of our youngsters is fascinating. Pakistan, having very few resources of education, still produces position holders who dominate the world through their grades. The nation needs polishing but the question arises: how can we be the best in the world? What would it take to solve all the current problems of Pakistan? What is the basic cause of such great decline of this talented, rich and hardworking nation?
The basic cause of our present decline is that we ourselves chose to decline by selecting the capitalist system.
