Achieving eternal peace

At present, Pakistan is facing many challenges, but lack of peace seems the root cause of all the ills of our society. Lack of peace, lawlessness are major hurdles in progress of country. There is dire need to develop the positive and visionary attitude towards the issues to bring the eternal peace in the country.

Government has appreciated the political parties for their full support on the constitutional amendments to bring peace to Pakistan. But the government must not let this environment of reconciliation and cooperation go in vain and should appoint a judicial commission to look into allegations of rigging in the 2013 elections. Government had offered to set up the judicial commission before the protest even began, and written to the Supreme Court in this regard. Instead of pursuing that matter, government seems reluctant to reach an agreement with the PTI. Perhaps it feels its position is stronger now that the nation is united in the fight against militancy. Nation has fed up from the confrontation of political parties; another sit-in protest would be a disaster to achieve the stability.

It is the crucial time, politicians must put an end to their differences and should think to find the ways to redress the grievances of the masses. It is high time that we start changing our policies for good of the people not to just stay in power. We need to have another look at the internal and external factors contributing to destabilize peace. Any exercise in banning extremist organisations would be of cosmetic value unless there are legal provisions, no leader must be allowed to spread the message of hatred in the name of ideology. It is tragic that banned outfits are working after changing their names. There must be strict observation on foreign funding that is being used to spread chaos inside our country. Politicians, media organizations, educational institutions and clerics must spread the message of tolerance and patience to achieve the long lasting peace.
