Quaid-e-Azam once said "There is no power on earth that can undo Pakistan". In this line, Quaid-e-Azam firmly believed that Pakistan is and would be so powerful that no country would harm it. But unfortunately, Political influence in all government and private institutions is taking hold which is more dangerous than that of external threats. No public or private organization is saved from it. In Sindh, there is huge lack of meritocracy in government and private organizations. Every institution requires political reference for every appointment or admission in it. If one seeks admission in any college or university, there is need of influence. Similarly, majority of graduate students do not apply for jobs
because of political interference. It is indubitably, there is no democracy in Sindh. Because democracy is government of the people, by the people, for the people. But Sindh is having huge influence of feudalism, nepotism and favouritism, and it lacks leadership and democracy. Going to hospitals in Sindh, you would find yourself strange. Because Political appointed doctors and paramedical staffs do not care for those who lack influence. It is no doubt that they would look after those who brought them at their current positions. It is firmly believed whether anyone talks about merit, he would be sent home
without any delay. In the time of General Elections, majority of people cast their vote for the remuneration of some rupees or in greed of any job or work becaus high rate of illiteracy prevails in Sindh Province. Consequently, Only those candidates get success in General Elections who have huge influence over area's people. Pakistan does not have any threat from any external rival. But it has great menace from her internal political influence. Youth needs a true, faithful and honest leader who could bring merit, political stability and democracy. Government of Pakistan and Judiciary should look after
country's prevailing huge social problems and bring all problems down. Pakistan needs meritocracy in all its institutions and organizations so that country could get progress and prosperity.
