Role of youth in Pakistan’s progress

Youth of any nation is always considered the asset of a country and it plays a primary role in the development of that country.

Youth plays a vital role in keeping the nation upfront at the international level as through their contribution, a country moves on and on in the right direction of prosperity.

Nonetheless, situation is not that optimistic in Pakistan, a country where more than fifty percent population is comprised on people who are between 16 to 30 years of age.

Even with this huge majority of the total population, the country is still trailing far behind as compared to other super nations of the world.

Major reason behind this dilemma is that our youth has lost its national pride and do not even think about the prosperity of this country because a huge percentage of young people do not even want to live in this country.

These young people remain busy in discovering the ways through which they could find means of going abroad. They are even ready to do this by hook or by crook as their only objective is to go abroad and settle there for the rest of their lives.

These young people spend major part of their time in vulgar activities and their hot topics of discussion are movies, songs, video games and so on.

Such youngsters are going far away from the teachings of Islam and from the norms and traditions of our society.

Our talented youngsters have adopted double standards as they always try to follow the foreign culture while living in a society where traditional norms are completely against that foreign culture.

Considering the fact that young people of this country always remain busy in such vain activities, how can we expect that this country could produce renowned scientists, engineers, political leaders?

The youngster of today is expected to become a responsible citizen of tomorrow but unfortunately, the younger generation seems to be years away from that maturity, which is the pre-requisite of a prosperous country.

Pakistan will grow if the youngsters realise their responsibilities and work accordingly by leaving their vain activities behind and act for the progress of this homeland.
