Pakistan has been pounded by recurring financial crises, and its real economy has demonstrated an incapacity to attain sustained high per capita income growth. As a result, widespread poverty endures. Simultaneously, armed extremist organizations have developed as opposing authorities to the state within its geographical jurisdiction, causing massive conflict. Many people believe that Pakistan’s economic prospects are not just terrible, but that the country’s very survival is jeopardized. As a result, these questions arise: can Pakistan ever develop, what should Pakistan be doing to achieve this goal?

First question: can Pakistan ever develop?

Pakistan Prosperity

The answer to the question is an absolute yes, as Pakistan boasts the world’s biggest integrated irrigation system, the world’s largest copper reserves, and the world’s second-largest gold deposits, as well as significant but unquantified coal and gas potential. At the same time, it has a huge and largely youthful population with significant potential aptitude, as proven by exceptional persons in the social, political, artistic, intellectual, and scientific spheres on occasion. This is hardly unexpected given that the Pakistan region has had thriving urban centers for over 7,000 years.

It has also served as a melting pot for civilizations from Central Asia, West Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. As a result of the linked genetic variety, the inhabitants of this country not only have significant mental talents, but also cultural diversity, which, if encouraged, may improve its intellectual, political, and economic life.

Second Question: what should Pakistan be doing to achieve this goal?

I’m sure many people would wonder when they think about Pakistan’s prosperity, what Pakistan can do to accelerate its development.

The correct way to ask this question is to ask yourself what things Pakistan should avoid in order to focus on genuine development initiatives that will bring development to the country.

The first thing to avoid doing is obviously the release of recorded songs that try to portray Pakistan as the most powerful nation which it never really is. To celebrate Pakistan’s 75th anniversary of independence, the original national anthem has been re-recorded to represent contemporary inclusion in voices and expression while maintaining the sanctity of the original text and musical composition.

How much this song will cost till the time it’s fully ready for the public to listen to? Quite a fortune, I am afraid.

Pakistanis have chosen to release an anthem on the most glorious day in Pakistan’s history to cheer up the public during a time when the country is tormented by economic, structural, and other issues. What are we doing instead of concentrating on those problems and their resolution? This is the question we should all be asking ourselves.

Let us examine a few problems that Pakistan is dealing with right now.

Major Problems of Pakistan

A poorly performing economy, rising militancy, and shaky relations with former allies are some of the major problems that surround Pakistan right now.

According to Professor Jaffar Ahmed, head of the Institute of Historical and Social Research, the government has “many problems on internal and foreign relations levels.”

The following are some of the gravest challenges that have to be confronted for the sake of the survival of the country.

Pakistan Economy

Debt, inflation, and a weak currency have all conspired to keep growth stagnant over the past three years, with little hope of true change.

We have no direction, said Nadeem ul Haque, vice-chancellor of the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics in Islamabad (PIDE).

To bring the economy around, radical policy measures are required.

Inflation is above 12%, foreign debt is about $130 billion (43 percent of GDP), and the rupee has dropped to 215 to the dollar, a drop of nearly a third since Khan gained power.

Rise of militancy in Pakistan

The Taliban in Pakistan, a different organization with origins in the insurgents who took control in Afghanistan last year, have increased assaults in recent months.

Taliban are on the rise continuously in various regions of KPK and are camped in the mountains of Swat valley. This may lead Pakistan’s economy to destruction and its infrastructure as well. They have already taken over a few areas in KPK.

Foreign relations of Pakistan

Imran Khan, the former prime minister alleges the US conspired with the opposition to remove him, and the next administration will have to work hard to repair relations with Washington – a crucial arms supplier offsetting Russia’s trade with India.

Khan enraged the West by continuing his visit to Moscow on the day Russia invaded Ukraine, and he was also one of the few foreign leaders to attend the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympics, despite others boycotting in protest of China’s human rights record.

Nonetheless, army leader General Qamar Javed Bajwa assuaged some concerns by emphasizing that strong ties with the US remain a priority for Pakistan – that the military wields enormous authority regardless of whatever civilian administration is in office.

At the time of such troubles do you think it’s right to keep on dropping new anthems when a poor man is not able to feed his children when he is not able to put clothes on their backs?

What other Nations are doing?

Indian Automobile Company is going to release its five new electric cars on their independence day. These new inventions and technological advancements play a vital role in a country’s prosperity, not some re-recorded anthems. This is the reason why India is the 3rd largest economy in the world right now and we (Pakistanis) are struggling with even feeding our children right now.

What do you think Pakistan can do to prosper?

I want to ask you this question because I do not want my country to stay in this situation forever, Pakistanis have the potential to turn the game around but for doing so, we should be able to focus on something meaningful instead of listening to music.
