The lessons to be learnt here are that evolution of democratic process is taking place in Pakistan's society in a very rapid and interesting manner. This country holds 180 million people in a crazy , wild, passionate, emotional mosaic of ethnicity, politics, social makeup, literacy levels and religious groups. Its scientists from making nuclear bombs to discovering subatomic particles have won many a laurels.Its sages and saints have conquered the hearts of millions.It keeps its ancient wisdom from prehistoric (Mehergarh, Moen-jo- Daro,) to ancient history, Taxila, Harrapa, Gandhara to modern turmoil of an elected democracy which is in strife within itself with tribal, feudal, religious groupings, illiteracy in the modern sense.
We need to see the character of Pericles, Themistocles in our new emerging leadership.History repeats itself. Only those nations survive and emerge glorious who learn from history.
