Redeeming Pakistan

We are pleased to invite you to consider being a part in developing systems and ideas in redeeming Pakistan, if you have positive ideas and a spark, let it be lit.  

The purpose of this site  is to facilitate a dialogue in redeeming Pakistan for the good of her people (all people), her neighbors, and the world.

There is a Jinnah, Gandhi, MLK and Mandela sitting in you; all you have to do is remember that God (goodness) was the only thing with them in the beginning. They believed in making a difference and they did. They succeeded because they were not looking for anything to gain themselves and you can succeed if you have no other motive than seeing a better nation. Can you do it? Yes you can! there is always lakhon me eik. 

Tou shaheen hay parvaz hay kam tera
Taray samnay aasman aor bhe hain

Pakistanis together can work on this, gradually ideas may develop and solutions will appear, each one of you can take off or work together.  

Goethe, "Until one is committed, there is hesitancy... Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.… Whatever you can do or dream that you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now."

Throw in your ideas in 200-250 words as a starting point on each one of the issues listed below. Please remember no more than 250 words. 

We will place your piece at and if it makes sense, compile it and develop it. You can be a member of this forum by sending an email to - This would be a moderated forum, only those postings will go in that meet the requirements mentioned in this note. 

This site is about freedom, any one can copy this and share, at the end, good needs to come out of it no matter who does it. If you like your writing to be copyrighted,  please do not share on this forum. However, we do expect the copier to quote the writer, an honorable thing to do instead of getting caught.  On our part, we will continue the journey with a strong commitment.

Who is we? It's us, whoever is committed to bring about a positive change, eventually, there will be a panel represented by every Pakistani and non-Pakistanis  who are free from bias and will be listed on this site, as they come together.

Main Akela hi Chala tha Janib e Manzil Magar
Log Saath Aate Gaye aur Caravan Banta Gaya

To encourage writing skills, we ask you to write your own ideas, and it must by your own writing. Before you post, please check for spelling and grammar, read it several times before posting, it does not have to be perfect, but relatively easy to read and keep readers interest and must be sensitive to every group (listed below). Remember, we need serious ideas, we want people with strong viable ideas and commitment, even if it means a few. 

Let your writing be motivated by an idea of Pakistan, "That all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."  

There is no need to blame anyone, nor there is a need to wish things were different, what we need are practical things that can work in existing Pakistan circumstances. Let there be no miracles, but just small things that can bring about a change. Let the ideas deliver results in  2022  by the 75th independence anniversary, we need to learn to plant the seeds.

No articles please, we want ideas, specific ideas in 200-250 words on each topic listed below.  

Ramadan must have empowered you with Taqwa - God like qualities - justice, fairness, kindness, merciful, equal treatment, equal opportunity, non-discriminatory with equal space for all.

For Muslim Pakistanis,  let Prophet’s advice guide this venture - think for your brother what you want for yourselves. For Christian Pakistanis, "do it for others, what you want others to do for you" and for Hindu Pakistanis let the idea of " Vasudaiva Kutumbukum" be the guidance. For Ahmadiyya, Sikh, Buddhists, Zoroastrians and others, they all have guidance of golden rule to follow. 

The civility of a nation is defined by how a minority feels towards majority - Zero fear is God's will, scared to death is Satan's will, humanity will be somewhere in between where no Pakistani has to live in apprehension, discomfort or fear of the other. 

Everyone is in this together with no barriers.  A member of each community listed below is requested to be a participant on the panel, provided they understand the pledge to Pakistan listed at: The pledge is applicable only to the Pakistani participants. 

Whatever you choose to write, make sure, this would be acceptable to every Pakistani.

Applicable only to Pakistanis living in Pakistan, as non-Pakistanis will be a part of this team in the interests of a peaceful, secure and a prosperous Pakistan in the community of nations. This may be a dream of every Pakistani.

Patriotism should be defined in terms of what you do to uplift the hopes of
people, in terms of education to all, jobs to as many as you can in each
successive year, home for every human, and a better life style for every Pakistani.

Eventually, perhaps on August 14, 2022, every public office holder from the Peon to the President of PAKSITAN, and every one in between must take this pledge and live by it. Violation should disqualify him or her from holding the public office. Let it be monitored

  1. I pledge allegiance to Pakistan, the nation that stands for liberty and justice for all.
  2. I pledge that I honor and treat every Pakistani with "full" dignity.
  3. I pledge that all individuals would be treated on par.
  4. I pledge that I will treat all religions with equal respect, equal access and equal treatment.
  5. I pledge that I will oppose any act that treats any Pakistani less than myself.
  6. I Pledge that I will work for a Pakistan, where every individual can live with security and aspire for prosperity.
  7. I pledge that I will protect, preserve and value every inch of Pakistan and every human soul in Pakistan.
This would be the first step towards ensuring a Just, peaceful and prosperous
Pakistan, that can sustain its progress and peace.
