No-Nation Theory: Smaller Provinces in Pakistan
Entries may be a little edited for clarity or brevity. The views expressed do not necessarily reflect those of PakPositive.
Another self-important political ‘debate’ in Pakistan is being discussed within what’s little left of our intellectual circles (these are those who aren’t intellectually competent enough to have already fled in the brain-drain). Everyone is singing, completely ignoring the elephant in the room, and everyone is jumping on to the punditry of another existential banter.
I call it the new “No Nation Theory”. We have finally accepted that Pakistan can not actually function as one “Nation”.
Hurrah to the Mullah for finally teaching us that!
Everyone seems to have almost given up on one Nation that was supposed to be when India got carved out into pieces as a result of the partition.
“The Two Nation” theory has backfired within just 50 years of “Independence”, though independence from what, is no one’s business. May be we wanted independence just to be able to kill each other without any Hindoo / Shindoo / Bangalis / Bingos / Christian / Karantay / Sikhoo / Parsi / Angraiz sitting above us. We succeeded there admirably, I confess.
So we make no mistake: Pakistan now is an ethnic / sectarian / religious / feudal cesspool of conflicting ideologies at warpath with each other.
There are also well-fed idiots still living in lala-land amongst us, who continue to strongly “believe” that since it took such a long time for ‘great’ nations to become true nations, Pakistan is only going through some minor teething problems (and losing a little life/land here and there), and if all goes well, Pakistan will emerge as a great nation amongst other nations (in 900 years or something, apparently with just Islamabad remaining in one piece to ‘govern’ properly.)
