Entrepreneurship in Pakistan

Sir: I am writing to express my concern over the entrepreneurship in Pakistan as we know there are four factors of production of the countries’ economies and one is entrepreneurship which means to come up with a new idea new market and new business. We know that Pakistan has almost 140 million people below the age of 30. Pakistan is one of the youngest countries in the world and one of the fastest-growing economies in Asia and we don’t have enough jobs for them in the market and they all need to do some own work they need to encourage themselves to start up their own businesses so they can earn and fill the unemployment gap in the country. This will not only benefit the individual but, in fact, it will give a surplus point to the country’s economy.
But nowadays in Pakistan the young generation is not interested in starting up new businesses and they are running after the jobs, which is not good for them and also this behaviour increases unemployment. So, what we need to do together first of all our educational institutes need to encourage the students towards entrepreneurship by giving them some extra knowledge about this and also introduce courses like these in the universities so they start thinking about their own business set-ups and they will come up with some amazing ideas as well which will not only help them but it will help humanity and country.

A view point

I may kindly be allowed to avail the precious space of your esteemed columns to share my views with your worthy readers about an interesting subject. It has become imperative to defuse the prevailing confusion about the definition of “Ideology of Pakistan” in the society. Ideology is the science of ideas and value commitment of a society. The Ideology of Pakistan is based on the Objective Resolution because the ideology should be enshrined in “absolute” and not in ‘relative terms’. Besides Muslim, the followers of other religions are the inhabitants of Pakistan. Thus, the Ideology of Pakistan should be in the form that to be owned by all the communities in the state.
The Objective Resolution speaks in unequivocal terms for the fundamental human rights, rights of minorities and the establishment of an environment of ‘tolerance’ to be the obligation of state. Further, the resolution declares that the sovereignty is to be exercised by the ‘people’ irrespective of religion, colour, caste or creed. The Resolution states that the country will be governed through the chosen representatives of the people. Here, the right of franchise or the election of chosen representatives was not respected to ‘Muslims’ but to the ‘people’ as a whole. The Resolution further prescribes the form of the state ‘Federation’ with provincial autonomy. The resolution simply requires the Muslims to be ‘enabled’ and not ‘compelled’ to order their lives in accordance with the teachings of Islam. The resolution contains the term ‘freely’ for the minorities to profess their religions and develop their cultures.
The Resolution, in fact, rejects the concept of theocratic state in Pakistan. Virtually, the Objective Resolution is the legislative expression of the ideology of Pakistan and based on the vision of the Quaid and the aspirations of the Muslims of South Asia who exercised their right of self-determination for Pakistan through 1945-46 elections and the referendum in the provinces of KPK and A’asam of British India. Thus, according to every criterion relating to the term ‘Ideology’, the Objective Resolution is the Ideology of Pakistan itself. The Objective Resolution was moved in the first Constituent Assembly of Pakistan by Prime Minister Liaquat Ali Khan on March 9 and was adopted after extensive debate on the subject in the National Assembly seventy-three years ago on March 12, 1949.

Taste of his own medicine

API Police Officer and Encounter specialist Sachin Vaze has got a taste of his own medicine. He is involved in the custodial deaths of as many as 63 alleged criminals. He should be hanged by the neck till death in full public view and his hanging should be telecast live on national television. He has also led the Raigad police team to arrest Arnab Goswami, the editor-in-chief of Republic TV in the case of the death of architect Anvay Naik.
Maharashtra does not need corrupt police officers like Sachin Vaze who has also planted a bomb outside industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s residence. Sachin Vaze has also killed a Thane-based businessman Mansukh Hiran and CM Uddhav Thackeray, Police Commissioner Param Vir Singh and Member of Parliament Sanjay Raut are shielding him. Shame on them.
