Karachi is the city which is the economic hub of the country and the overall economy of the whole country is disturbed when the business centre of the state Karachi is closed.But unfortunately from the last year the city of the lights Karachi is once again under a huge threat and the panic is observed all over, the killing of the citizens has reached to its peak from last few days.Every day it is heard that the people killed in target killing and this target killing has reached to its peak.People are feeling fear when they come out from their houses,they do not go out and the business is almost closed.The killing of the people is increasing day by day but our government both the provincial and federal are not doing anything and it seems that the government is not playing her role other then a spectator.P
In the last few days the number of the citizens who lost their lives as result of this target killing has reached more than 300.Who were these people and who killed them?They were the citizen of the Pakistan but the killers are still not pointed out by anyone from the government or any other law enforcement agency.
Every political party in Karachi which is the stakeholder in the Parliament also is blaming her opponent some accuses that MQM is the culprit,some claims that ANP and some blames the others but we have never thought about the other angle of the picture that there might be some foreign forces which are hidden behind and are trying not only the killing of the citizens of the country but also damaging us economically and politically.

In this destruction there might be the element of the involvement of the Indian agency RAW which might be present in the country in the form of its agents or the Black Water that is already present in Pakistan.Why we are ignoring this factor and are blaming our own brothers without proper investigation.The foreign forces might be providing the weapons and financial support to create panic in the city and destroying it.Why we are neglecting this factor?We should think on these points seriously that the presence of foreign forces may also be detected but for this purpose we need unity and all the political parties of the province and the country should sit together for the solution of the problem and this blame game should be over now if we want to see peace and stability in the city and the country as well.MQM,Peoples Party and ANP must think this very seriously and they should work together for the security and peace of the city.If they will not sit together and if they will continue the blame game against each other then it will be very hard for the betterment of the whole area.The peace in Karachi is very important for the peace and stability in rest of the country so all the leaders and governments provincial as well as federal must think about this otherwise the circumstances will be out of control.The political parties must work together now, forgetting all their personal clashes and prejudices because the country's survival is just in this unity now otherwise the target is Karachi today and it can also be any other city tomorrow.

.Leader is a person who starts the work by communicating the policies and plans to the subordinates from where the work actually starts.A leader of a nation is a role model for the whole nation.
Leadership plays very important role for the progress and development of the countries.Leadership in other words encourages the nation.True and sincere leaders bring their nations to the top from the bottom end whereas the corrupt and insincere leaders brings the nations to the earth from the top rank.On the call of sincere leaders the nations always presents the last drop of their blood and they always agree on the decisions of their leaders.Unfortunately we are lacking in the true leadership that serve the nation in true sense.Since independence we are dreaming for a healthy and progressive Pakistan but this dream is still a dream when we see outside the country that the nations who got independence after us this thinking is very shameful for every Pakistani citizen who have pain for the country.The reason for this is that our leaders are not sincere with their country.There were few leaders who had pain for the country,who wanted to see a developed Pakistan but those were shoted or sentenced.We are lacking in all the disciplines due to lack of true and sincere leadership.Sincere leaders are not involved in making money and wealth and their priorities are the nation's progress,development and better image in the outer world but unfortunately the image of our leaders is as the corrupt people.This thing is very insulting for us and our leaders as well but the reality can never be changed.Whenever the elections held in the country every political party promised to bring positive change in the country.The leaders addressed in such a way that people trusted them and elected them as their representatives but what happened after that these honourable and elected members made their governments some went to the opposition seats and started waiting for their own term and in this way this process is still ongoing.In Pakistan mostly it is seen that the son of a leader is also becoming the successor of his forefathers and this process is continuous.One major reason is that the interference of army and martial laws imposed in the country also damaged Pakistan socially and economically.But the reason behind these martial laws is also the failure of our political leadership that the leaders of the nations do not have the potential to handle the things politically.We have never seen that a person from lower class has become our representative in Parliament and this thing has also damaged our state that the people from the lower and middle class are always neglected and the representatives are elected mostly on the basis of personal affiliations,on the basis of family,caste,sects and power..Why is it so?When this process will come to an end?Perhaps no one can answer this.We are waiting for any miracle now that change the history of our homeland.

The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty has been observed every year since 1993, when the General Assembly designated this day to promote awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution in all countries, particularly in developing countries this was a need that has become a development priority. At the Millennium Summit world leaders committed themselves to cutting by half by the year 2015 the number of people living in extreme poverty, people whose income is less than one dollar a day. The theme for this year’s International Day for the Eradication of Poverty "Working together out of poverty" highlights the need for a truly global anti-poverty alliance, one in which both developed and developing countries participate actively.

The observance of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty can be traced back to 17 October 1987. On that day, over a hundred thousand people gathered at the Trocadéro in Paris, where the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed in 1948, to honour the victims of extreme poverty, violence and hunger. They proclaimed that poverty is a violation of human rights and affirmed the need to come together to ensure that these rights are respected. These convictions are inscribed in a commemorative stone unveiled on this day. Since then, people of all backgrounds, beliefs and social origins have gathered every year on October,17th to renew their commitment and show their solidarity with the poor. Replicas of the commemorative stone have been unveiled around the world and serve as a gathering place to celebrate the Day. One such replica is located in the garden of United Nations Headquarters and is the site of the annual commemoration organized by the United Nations Secretariat in New York.through resolution 47/196 adopted on 22 December 1992, the General Assembly declared 17 October as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty and invited all States to devote the Day to presenting and promoting, as appropriate in the national context, concrete activities with regard to the eradication of poverty and destitution. The resolution further invites intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations to assist States, at their request, in organizing national activities for the observance of the Day, and requests the Secretary-General to take, within existing resources, the measures necessary to ensure the success of the Day's observance by the United Nations.
October 17th presents an opportunity to acknowledge the effort and struggle of people living in poverty, a chance for them to make their concerns heard, and a moment to recognize that poor people are the first ones to fight against poverty. Participation of the poor themselves has been at the center of the Day's celebration since its very beginning. The commemoration of October,17th also reflects the willingness of people living in poverty to use their expertise to contribute to the eradication of poverty.

The whole Islamic world is surrounded in troubles at present.It is also not wrong to say that the Islamic countries are degraded to a high degree by the west and this is the fact that the Islamic states are humiliated all over the world.The reason for this highly humiliation and insult is that there is no unity among the Islamic states.The Islamic countries and their leaders are not close enough and the relation of the Islamic brotherhood that should be the priority of all the Islamic states is not seen anywhere and as a result the circumstances are very pathetic for the whole Muslim world.There is not any organization or alliance that protect the Islamic values and unite all the states together for any common cause.Although there is OIC (Organization of Islamic countries) but is seems failing to unite the Islamic states.The concept of Islam and Muslim is perceived as a terrorist and terrorism and extremism is linked with Islam by the western forces.These forces are actually weakening the Islamic world and the west and United States both are hitting the Islamic countries one by one but no Islamic country is taking the initiative to stop this cruelty and injustice that is going on with Islam.The western forces are damaging the Islamic states one by one but there is no one to stop them.What is happening in Kashmir,Philistine,Afghanistan and Iraq this is enough for opening our eyes but we are seeing all this just like a statue.If we will not think about this seriously at present then the day will come that the whole Islamic world will be damaged by the western forces.If we want to protect our self and our religion then we must be united and we should make a powerful alliance against the anti Islam forces.My dear Muslim brothers this is the time to be united and if we will not do so at present then we will be destroyed one by one and no one will come to us for help.So,the Islamic unity is important for the survival of the Islam and Islamic countries.

A minority is a sociological group that does not make up a politically dominant voting majority of the total population of a given society. A sociological minority is not necessarily a numerical minority, it may include any group that is subnormal with respect to a dominant group in terms of social status, education, employment,wealth and political power.
Minorities are present in all the countries people of different religions and sects are found in all over.Due to the improvement in the transportation and communication sectors the distances between the countries are removed now and this thing has converted the whole world into a Global Village but the concept of majority and minority is still there and people are ranked as the minority group and the majority group this is so due to the behaviours and nature of the people.
It is seen that all over the world minorities are considered as the disgraceful group by the majority group of the country.Why is it so?even the most developed nations of the world are seen doing so and the minority groups in those states are living in pitiable conditions.In United States, United Kingdom and other European countries the people from other states are disregarded by the citizens and governments as well and specially the Muslims are being targeted a lot by those states in the recent years.
In some countries like France Muslim women even don't have the right to use veil (Hijab) and the hijab is prohibited there as the French Parliament passed a law prohibiting wearing a full-face veil in public.In India Hindu-Muslim clashes are the witness of the fact that Muslims in India are not enjoying the rights of free citizen in some areas of the country.When we talk about Pakistan here the difference is also seen that the minorities here in Pakistan are also facing the troubles.We have never seen that our media that is highlighting almost every thing has given or specified time for the minorities here in Pakistan.
We have seen that mostly the sweepers in our streets,offices,schools and colleges etc are from the Christian community and these people even do not have the right to sit with us the majority group.Their concept in our mind is just as a sweeper or a gate keeper.The Hindus and rest of the minorities are also not given respect in our country.
I just want to say one thing here to all the people that if they want to get regard and respect in other countries then they must give regard to the minorities living in their own country because everyone have same feelings,demands and wishes as we have.
Lets start respecting every citizen of the state forgetting the religions and sects because humanity is above all.When we will do so we will feel our self better than the citizens of those highly developed countries who are entangled in the useless thinking of religions and sects.We must respect every citizen of the state because if we want to earn respect from others then we should give respect to all the citizens forgetting the religions and sects because honour and respect is the basic right of every citizen.

 The present age is the age of competition and if the individuals or communities want to make progress then they have to compete with them but now the competition is not to get most power through weapons or ammunition.Now there is the competition on the basis of economy the countries that are economically sound they are enjoying as the leading nations in the world.Now coming to the actual point I would like to say that Pakistan and India both have a very lager number of population that is a huge market for all over the world so they are investing here in this part of the world and are earning a large amount of income.Western interests are always seen to get power from the Indo-Pak region because this a very big market for them on one end and on the other end two very big rivals are also there who are always seen in the business to get more and more power by buying the latest weapons and who sales these weapons to both the countries? It is west who is making the weapons and is selling them to India and Pakistan and in this way there business is on the top in the weapon industry but our leadership has never thought about this perspective that the amount which we pay for buying these latest weapons in both the countries may also be spent on the development projects,it can be spent for building more educational centers,health centers and other social welfare programs in India and Pakistan.In short the only solution for progress and development in the region is in peace and we should have peaceful dialogues between the leadership of both the countries otherwise we can not live in peaceful environment.
The enmity must be changed into a true friendship forgetting all the disputes of the past,we should have a soft boarder now between both the countries and this would be a best option for us and our upcoming generations.We should set an example for the world that now we are committed to see peace and harmony in the region and by doing so I assure you that we will make progress rapidly and our economy will compete as the leading competitors of the world and will prove us as the leading nations.
