The Imran Khan Phenomenon

The history of Pakistan has shown that desperate, hopeless masses will support even a glimmer of hope on the horizon. Once again people are ready to sacrifice everything for the next emerging leadership in Pakistan. At best, if Imran sticks to his words he will be assassinated like so many honest men before him.

One chronic problem Pakistan faces is lack of independent thought process (leadership) among its masses. The masses have been oppressed for centuries, The best that the can do is mark the ballot paper. In order for people to learn how to think the must be educated at the grassroots level with the best quality Islamic doctrine derived from the Quran & Sunnah. Without living the scriptures people can not differentiate truth from falsehood. They will waver and fluctuate when offered the next popular viewpoint. Hollow traditions should be cast aside with liberating Islamic ideology.

Leadership, no matter how good or honest, can easily be eliminated by a bullet or bomb, but highly educated and conscientous masses can not be held down. Imran Khan needs to perpetually nurture thousands of like minded individuals that if he falls any one of them can take over. Unless that happens I think it is premature to be optimistic for Pakistan.

The Prophet (SWAS) was the best leader and he produced the best leadership in the Sahaba (RA), saying that the were like stars -- whichsoever you follow you will be led aright. And they changed the course of history forever...like never before... or since...
