Pakistan’s Top Five Contemporary Political Songs

Last Friday, (Dec 10), a senior colleague of mine started a hot and passionate discussion on current affairs and religion(during lunch break) – his assertion: Pakistanis lack moral courage to stand up for what’s right and that’s why there is a high incidence of earthquakes, floods and other natural calamities in our part of the world right now. God is angry with us. We keep selecting bad leaders; he feels that a great majority either doesn’t vote or votes in the wrong crowd – he wants a change – for the better... according to him, new leadership should be given a chance - he wants all of us (at work) to vote for Imran Khan – a comparatively ethical political leader. According to him, not standing up for what’s right is killing us as a nation. What do you think? Do you agree with him? By Fareeha Qayoom
