Senior Member Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Former Governor of Punjab Mohammad Sarwar has said “Pakistan is in the brink of an economic downturn.
Corruption is a cancer in our nation which has deeply permeated in every strata of our society. It is a multi-faceted problem which can only be fought back through all possible fronts of sincerity. In addition to this, given the current political dogma, our most valuable asset; overseas Pakistani’s are terrified to return back home.”
During a reception held in Glasgow, in honor of Labor Party Candidate; Anas Sarwar, the former governor stressed on the current situation of overseas Pakistanis. He stated; “Thousands of Overseas Pakistanis are being harassed by ‘Land Mafias’ who have declared ownership rights on their properties. The properties are being taken over in Pakistan whereas the victims are engaged in protracted legal battles with a hope to get back their property rights. It is agonizing to know that the state looks away from this underlying problem. Every Pakistani irrelevant to where he/she resides should be granted protection.”
He also emphasised on the need for having a strong judiciary system in Pakistan. He asserted; “One of the key fundamental factors that is important for Pakistan to function is ‘Justice’. Without justice, no society can exist. Judiciary being one of the most vital organs of a state contributes to the stability of the society. However, when justice is delayed, the nation plunges into anarchy. Pakistan lacks a strong judicial system. A huge vacuum of extremism, terrorism and sectarianism has resulted which has plagued our motherland.”
