Pakistan needs an industrial revolution not blood revolution
There is an eco of bloody revolution in Pakistan from different quarters. Last year, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman, Imran Khan, while speaking at a rally organised jointly by his party and the Jamaat-i-Islami in Karachi, warned that there will be a bloody revolution in the country if political forces are denied right to come to power through peaceful means. I heard Late General (Rtd) Hameed Gul saying about soft revolution in a inauguration ceremony where Chief Guest Malik Meraj Khalid, the then Caretaker Prime Minister of Pakistan mocked at the idea. For him there was no such thing like soft revolution. On another occasion a former Pakistani Prime Minister claimed to bring about silent revolution. The idea of silent revolution was also rejected by some intellectual by saying that there is no example of silent revolution. In the contemporary world, all the five major great powers such as the USA, Russia, China, France and the UK have undergone bloody revolutions in different times. It is argued that these countries could become superpowers due to bloody revolutions in their countries. The countries which have not undergone bloody revolution became economic giants but could not achieve the political greatness. Canada and Australia are the best example we see in today's world. They are economic powers but not the political ones. If a revolution takes place here, it would unite the people against the evils and Pakistan can become a great nation. These are the views of the supporters of bloody revolution in Pakistan. However, we being the supporters of Science revolution in Pakistan, look the other side.
