62 years back, Pakistan (Land of Purity, Peace, Unity, Faith, Discipline and Religious free) got independent - my grandparents, parents, teachers, relatives and the media, declared. Is it independent or dependent? This question arises whenever I see the current situation.

I agree, but our motherland isn't yet get freedom or independence even 50%. Why is it so? I asked citizens around me, but never ever got a visionary or optimistic answer including solutions. Most of them said we are liberal, as our woman can go out at any time, our children can socialize, we are free to say anything about anyone and most important media has got freedom.

I got shocked after coming to know the misinterpretation of liberty, freedom and independence, according to current scenario.

I asked you (young generation) that, this is what we learn in our schools and universities, to how to misinterpret without thinking and understanding correctly and what to be spoke? This is the hardcore problem where we misinterpret our homeland and most importantly ISLAM (religion of peace, prosperity, brotherhood).

From the day one religion Islam asked us to ‘think' rationally, obviously we didn't, which resulted in hypocrisy, misleading, skeptical thinking, more specifically suicide bombing and attacks. Aga Khan IV in his speech regarding Islam said, which I would interpret, "Islam is not bad, it's all pure and religion of peace but people following this religion are bad, who have misinterpreted in an incorrect direction."

Now, we should answer ourselves (individually) that what we should do for Pakistan for which it got independent. Just what we need is liberty in ‘thinking', but rational thinking, and answer that what I myself should do? And what's my responsibility? How can I help other citizens? It will indeed result in harmony amongst everyone, built faith and moreover thinking results in proper planning or vision, which is very necessary and it will lead us.

In-addition, instead of criticizing our nation and leaders, have we ever think, what each one of us has given to Pakistan? Except pulling legs, we have not even given 20% of what a citizen's responsibilities are. Thus, we should analyze, re-call our mistakes and try to overcome it, to build it prosper, peace-loving, developed and one of the leading nations.
