An Ideal State. By Ishaq Yaqub


Everybody in the world believes on ideals. Some people always have ideal personality whom they love or follow. There are ideal things; ideal states and other kinds of ideals are there. It belongs to a person's nature that what he desires for his life, which he likes and what he likes. It all depends on the person's choice or thinking. Throughout the history of mankind people try to get the place where they can live happily and calmly. Either the person has to go to somewhere else or far from his place to live. Where he could live happily and can secure his life and future. So this is very true that people have their likes or unlike .Therefore it is said that everybody likes good thing. Whatever the person likes it is from his heart and according to his own will and thinking.
I think, by the ideal thinking, this world is more active and dynamic. Everyone wants to have choice to live because he is born free or by birth he is free and he always wants to live as a free man. Nobody is allowed to put pressure on him to follow his will. Freedom means that I want to do what I ought to do. At the present moment, when the whole world is facing problems day by day and people are upset. So everybody has concern with the ideal state. Ideal state means an exemplary state, where people live peacefully and happily. Because state is for the people and its responsibility is to work for the good of the people.
In this world so many people have written much about the ideal state that what kind of it should be. British social philosopher Sir, Thomas more in 16th century wrote a book namely Utopia., which means "good place land", It was just an idea, which shows that there is one place where people can live easily, peacefully and without any problem, without fighting with each other. Some people think that it is his criticism on European society. It is also considered that the land is uncomplicated which he pointed out. Where people can pass their lives easily. That's why people always feel about the ideal state and it can be like paradise. So the ideal state can become through good. Where all kinds of facilities must be there. And people feel free to act upon their good actions.
Great classic philosopher Plato, who wrote a book namely, republic in 360 B.C. He wrote about the ideal state because he likes this kind of state. Plato's philosophy of ideal state is that there should be justice. And the justice is the main virtue of the state. So without justice, state cannot survive. So according to him it is ideal state for the people.
Every state has concern with the people of the state. And state has to work for the people's welfare. So regarding the ideal state, we have to imagine and can see the situation of our country at the present time critically. There is no doubt that Pakistan is the best and ideal state in the world. Pakistan became state on 14 August 1947 under the leadership of Qaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. After the existence of Pakistan so many people came to Pakistan just to have better place according to their ideas. This state is most beautiful country in the world. So many sources are there.. Even all kinds of good things and weathers are there. Best Army of the world is there for protection of the public.

When I asked some persons that how they feel that Pakistan is an ideal state for them. So they replied, of course that Pakistan is ideal state for them. Everything is good in Pakistan but there are some lacking also which are disturbing the people every time. If we deeply think about the situation of Pakistan, there are many problems, which are playing a very negative role. Khyber to Karachi, we can see peaceful atmosphere which is showing very bad impression to all of us, Dr. Amir Liaqat Hussein says in his column in "daily Jang", after the attacks on Peshawar Church that nothing is saved here, not Masques, churches, Imam Bargahs, schools, police headquarters etc. All the news from the newspapers or television are very pensive and thrillers. Although there are good news but because of these bad news good news disappear. From a long time we have been hearing good news just from the sports side. That is Just for temporary period we feel happy but most of the time we hear about the blasting and Sui-side bombing. If we leave these news aside then people hear about the shortage of petrol, gas and electricity but rates go very up and people feel discouragement. Besides of these problems there are other immoral events are taking place every day. For instance, rape cases with women even child rape cases are there, which is stigma for Pakistan. On the other side unemployment is one of the great problems in Pakistan. Because of this poverty rate is going very up. And according to Carl Marx "poverty is the root of all the problems". So poverty is a big problem for all of us. There is another big issue about the sectarianism and terrorism which is also most disturbing and against the unity of Pakistan. At the present moment it is the main problem of the country. It is also biggest hurdle in Pakistan to have peace. Education system is also one of the main problems of the country. Because lacking of the education no one country can go forward.
There is also a major problem in Pakistan that religious minorities are facing discriminatory problems which is against the sayings of the Qaid-e-Azam. Everywhere they feel and deal as low level citizen of Pakistan. Although the founder of Pakistan Muhammad Ali Jinnah straight way on 11.August 1947 to the constituent assembly spoke that "you are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or any place of worship in the state of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or cast or creed-that has nothing to do with the business of the state. We are starting with this fundamental principle that we are all citizens and equal citizens of one State. I think we should keep that in front of us as our ideal and you will find that in due course Hindus would cease to be Hindus and Muslims would cease to be Muslims, not in the religious sense, because that is the personal faith of each individual, but in the political sense as citizens of the State.” H spoke clearly but nobody is ready to act upon it.
Our national political leaders claim so many good things to do during the election time which is just showing them green gardens but afterward there is nothing. There are many responsibilities which they have to fulfill for the country to prove Pakistan as a ideal state for the world.
For example Mian Nawaz Sharif says that Pakistan will be the Asian Tiger but it is just in papers. Or his government will break the "kashkol" on the other side PPP leaders say that Pakistan will get its high image among the international community but if we see the image of Pakistan by economically or peaceful structure. it shows very low image. Imaran khan makes slogan of change but no change.
According to my views Pakistan is an ideal state for all of us if we follow the footsteps and sayings of Qaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah the founder of Pakistan. Than Pakistan can be the model country for all of the world. So regarding the ideal state, if the government solve above mentioned problem than there will be peace everywhere in the country. To get this goal everybody have to work hard.
