Revolution (Inquilaab) --> The Misconceptions

Heyyyy Alllllllllll

Today its a serious topic and without any shout outs will go straight to the topic

Another 14th August came by and went away. Boys took out their bikes, removed the silencers and went out on one wheeling adventures, girls made green dresses and wore them, kids had their faces painted and were holding flags, houses were decorated, we sang songs about Pakistan, said "I LOVE YOU PAKISTAN" over and over again, youth changed their display pictures on Facebook and Twitter with Pakistani flags or patriotic pictures and there was no Punjabi, Sindhi, Pathan and Balochi and all I heard about that we are a nation and we will "REVOLUTIONIZE" Pakistan.



Then I woke up the very next day and turned the television on and then I saw Punjabi, Sindhi, Siraiki, Urdu Speaking, Muhajir, Pathan, Balochi & Agency people. All that love gone? Within like eight hours of sleep? Are we Pakistanis for just one day among 365 days? People were wishing everyone Happy Independence Day

I ask are we really really Independent today?
With us being enslaved by America
With us being enslaved by corrupt leaders
With us being as a dead nation as it could be
With us being ordered by everyone

Are we really free? Independent? Are we still Pakistan?

All this talk aside most of the time among the rest of the 364 days what I hear is that Pakistan needs a Revolution, Inquilaab aayega tau kuch hoga (Revolution is the only chance) , Revolution this and Revolution that and this Revolution has become the most abused word in our media and in our day to day conversations. This youth will bring the revolution needed by Pakistan. In these theories the Media and the expertily stupid people talking about Revolution have created misunderstandings. Let me clear them one by one.


1. Revolution = Protest

The basic thing whenever people say is that Revolution is to protest. YES stand up for your rights and go out on streets BUT its not everything. Revolution is actually to bring a change within you and then try and spread that awareness among the people around you and bring the change and then when you are changed yourself then ONLY can you bring the change in the society not like the concept we have that we dislike something, we go out on the streets, break our own stuff, come back home and sleep. This is not revolution and to be honest its not a protest either.

2. Its A One Day/One Week Thing

This is basically the biggest misconception among our people that we will protest today and maybe for two more day and after that Zardari will resign from government, all prices will come down the next day, load shedding will end, Zardari will get himself arrested and he and all corrupt leaders will be taken to court, a new leader will rise and he will tell america to mind their own business and everything will be okay??
THAT IS NOT HOW IT GOES

It was in 1930 when Allama Iqbal gave the idea of Pakistan and after 17 years of hard work and sacrifices did our forefathers achieve this land that we call Pakistan. During those times people gave whatever they could for Pakistan. Today all we want is that if we can make a big enough protest today then tomorrow everything will be alright once again.


3. Revolution Ends After Freedom/Object Completion

This is also a misconception where people think that once the objective of the revolution is achieved all we did can be brought back again. NO. The real revolution starts after the objective is complete because remember as I said before Revolution is the name of bringing a change in one self and if the objective has completed then its because you changed and if you let it go for one day then things will start going back to where they were. This is exactly what happened to Pakistan, our forefathers kept themselves revolutionized but what they forgot to do was to transfer their love for Pakistan to their children (some of them did) and so on and as they first generation of Pakistan slowly died the true love for Pakistan died with them and then started the long destabilization of Pakistan which according to me has reached its peak today.


4. Revolution is peaceful

"Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna Abb Hamaray Dil Main Hai, Dekhna Hai Zor Kitna Bazooay Qaatil Main Hai"
Translation --> The will of sacrifice is in our hearts now, lets see how much power does the murderer has

As I said revolution is not a protest so protest can be peaceful but revolution is NOT. It can start with protest but it has to go on to huge measures where people would have to lay down their lives so that the future can have a better life. For us the best example is our very own independence, just one incident is enough to quote here that it was the time of Namaaz. One person stood up to give Azaan and just as he had said "ALLAH-O-AKBAR" he was shot down by the British army. This did not stop the others and one more stood up in the martyr's place and continued the Azaan, he too was shot down. This continued till the Azaan was completed. THIS IS WHAT IS NEEDED

People would get themselves arrested for no reason at all so they could spread the protests inside Jails as well. Freedom fighters would dance on the news of them getting hanged. This is revolution when you bring such a change in yourself that NOTHING matters to you except your objective. If not take an example from past then take an example from Egypt's youth. They stood up against the tyrant and it took time but now things are turning their way. They didn't protest just one day, they stood for their rights. People died, got injured but that did not stop them. I salute all the Egypt youth for that step :) . Look at what is happening in Bahrain, the bahraini government is making crackdowns at people's home and killing them, capturing them, torturing them and even denying them of their basic rights to get treated in a hospital but they are not backing down and even in police stations amongst the torture they just want freedom of their nation from the tyrant read more here http://sohaibx.blogspot.com/2011/07/bahrain-real-story.html. THIS IS REVOLUTION

5. This Youth will bring a revolution

Really? Are you serious? This youth?? Who

  1. Does drugs
  2. Drinks alcohol
  3. Can remember long and lengthy Eminem songs but can't remember their own national anthem
  4. Keeps girlfriends & boyfriends
  5. Would lie to their parents for a girl/boy who they know for merely months
  6. Hate studying the history of Pakistan
  7. Would leave Pakistan for a foreign country the instant they get the chance
  8. Go around asking all the time "What has Pakistan given us?"
  9. Who are not even loyal to their own parents
  10. Who can listen to revolution songs but cannot think of going out one day in afternoon and get themselves arrested so they can spread the word in prison
  11. Who would rather tweet about loving Pakistan than actually showing it
  12. On 14th august they go out on bikes like its obligatory
I am a part of this youth and I am as much as a culprit as the others

Singing songs is easy, doing it is the real part. The Bahrain and Egypt youth are the ones who took the step, this youth is just humiliation. Just look at the below video and after that I will have no need to give any further argument regarding this issue. THIS YOUTH WILL BRING A REVOLUTION?? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *spits*




WE NEED TO CHANGE OURSELVES TO CHANGE THE NATION
A NATION GETS THE LEADERS WHICH THEY ARE THEMSELVES
SO JUST THINK THAT WE ALL ARE ZARDARIS
AND THE ACTUAL PIECE ASIF ALI ZARDARI IS ALL OF US COMBINED INTO ONE
WE ARE THE REASON HE IS UP THERE
SO STOP BLAMING HIM AND CORRECT YOURSELF
STOP WASTING TIME ON CRITICIZING THE GOVERNMENT AND BRING A CHANGE IN YOURSELF
THE FEELING WILL BE AMAZING
I GUARANTEE YOU, YOU WILL BE FREEEEEEEE
THATS ALL FOR THIS TIME

Don't Forget To Like The Page

  1. AOA! Syed Sohaib, your blog is really appreciable! However it is too long to be included as an article. As it belong to you, so we don't think to reserve the right of editing it. Further more, you haven't emailed it like others, but we still had taken it from that link. That's why we remain unable to consult you while finalizing.
    While selecting the articles, there was a bulk through which we need to select. It doesn't mean in any case that the ones not included may be considered as rejected. Your article is under consideration, and we appreciate your writing skills. Will hope the same kind of good articles from you in the upcoming magazines. This article seems more likely to be included in August 14's magazine.
    Have a happy new year!
