Revitalising History

Minar-e-Pakistan_Renovation.jpg
Minar-e-Pakistan undergoing Renovation.
This might seem somewhat ‘patriotically incorrect’ to some but I, for one, never found Minar-e-Pakistan aesthetically pleasing. All those in favor of giving Minar-e-Pakistan a complete face-lift – even if it means taking this one down to build a new one – raise their hands, type ‘Yay’ and press ‘Post’.

(This isn’t ever going to happen, so keep the things calm if you’re emotionally attached to the current structure.)

    I know this doesn’t have anything to do with the topic but look at how the world portrays Pakistanis.

    Add at least a 100 ft. to the current height and I won’t be complaining about any aesthetics ;)

    AK: Pakistan is just a "tamasha" for the world, so dont take the "world" so seriously.

    I have found the stairway inside the Minar to be very narrow.

    Well….,
    Pakistan is a big "Tamasha" for all over the world, its quite a shame when you are living outside of Pakistan and telling other about your origion. I would like to quote, Former Cheif Justice Bashir-ud-Din, who I once met in Baghe Jinnah while on a morning walk with my father. He said,
    "Pakistan cannot be consider as a nation, but a group of individuals living together"/

    How sad it is, we cant think as nation, we are backwards, we have put a bad name on Islam, we have done everything wrong we could, we do leg pulling of each other, we never like other pakistani brother to be successful, we are liars, we are deceivers, we are rotten eggs, we are just simple bad people.
    I really am feeling bad about writing all these but its the truth. I am ashamed of this truth and don’t want to associate myself with Pakistan anymore.

    Oh and by the way…not only MINAR-E-PAKISTAN needs a face lift but the whole pakistan needs to be rebuild and facelifted.

    I know lot of people think like this. but more important is how we Pakistani think about our home land. I know Pakistan in not a nation its a unity of different nations with one bounding ideology that is Islam, and common struggle to grow and defend. and i think that is enough to keep us together. if we try to create a single nation all cultures and tribes within Pakistan will appose it.
