If you are a responsible Pakistani, you must have wondered How to make Pakistan better. Pakistan is our homeland. It is as precious for us as our own lives. So it is very natural that we want to make Pakistan better. Here are some ways to improve Pakistan?
How to make Pakistan better
If we want to make Pakistan better then we must try to make it Quaid-e-Azam ka Pakistan. Here are some ways we can improve Pakistan.
1. Vote for the right person
It is a dilemma of Pakistan that many people of our country do not vote. We just take a holiday and enjoy on election day. The other issue the Pakistani democracy is facing is that most of the people vote based on caste, friendships, and personal benefits. People ignore the factor that whether that person is competent and suitable for that post or not.
2. Invest in education
Usually, the top priority of middle-class people like us is to construct our own and we spend our whole life-saving money for the construction of a home. This is the place where problems begin. Most people neglect their basic needs to save more money. They even compromise on the quality of education. Due to this, often families manage to build their own home but the lack of education pushes their career and future further darkness.
To make Pakistan a better place to live, we should invest in education. We must increase the literacy rate which is very less than in other countries of the world. Not only families but the government should also increase the percentage of total income for education. When a person becomes educated, he already begins to know how he can beneficial to himself and his country.
The federal and provincial governments should also promote and improve the quality of free education in government schools.
3. Honesty and sincerity:
It is often said, “honesty is the best policy”. Everyone believes it but no one follows this. When we look at all the well-developed countries like the USA, UK, Japan, etc, the only thing that is common among them is that they are honest. Honesty does not mean that you keep “Amanat” only. It means being honest and sincere to your work, promises, your goals, yourself.
When every person will be honest in his work, the corruption will die itself. Productivity and self-satisfaction will increase. When we will be honest with our promises, goals, and ourselves then we will work hard to complete our promises and achieve our goals. This will lead to a healthy society and a better Pakistan.

4. Accept the difference
We Pakistanis should work on this point. The lack of education which our country has seen since its independence is the main contributor to this issue. Education makes your mind less rigid and allows you to accept the change and accept the difference.
Accepting the difference not only makes your life easy but it makes your mental peace bloom. The difference leads to inclusion which is an important component of a healthy society.
5. Stop littering and be environmentally friendly.
You must have noticed that whenever any foreign blogger or vlogger comes to Pakistan, he/she always likes everything about Pakistan. But they also raise the issue of littering. We Pakistani’s are so used to this littering culture that we even don’t see it as an issue. But believe me, it is an issue. In the last few weeks, even the ambassador of the UK was seen on Margalla hill collecting garbage thrown by Pakistani tourists. This is a time for us to rethink our attitudes.
6. Be a good neighbor
It is one of the most important points of how to make Pakistan a better place. When you make your neighbor happy, he will try to be good in return. This increases respect in society. Only being a good neighbor can increase harmony and respect in society.
7. Donate (other than money also)
When it comes to donating money, Pakistanis top the global graph. Pakistanis should also consider donating in other forms like blood donation, organ donation, etc. It is often seen that many people are reluctant to donate blood. They think that donating blood can induce weakness and other problems. This is wrong. The human body has some strong mechanism to produce the blood that is donated. The organ donation should also be promoted as it is a “Sadqa e Jaria”
8. Be patriotic but not nationalist
If you have searched How to make Pakistan better then it is not wrong to assume that you are a true patriotic person. But we should keep in mind that everything is good within limits. The difference between a patriotic and a nationalist is that a patriotic loves his country. But he also recognizes the wrong things. On the other hand, nationalists love their country but they do not recognize what wrong is happening. Not knowing what is wrong can make a society stagnant and stops further improvement.
9. Abiding by Law
The laws are made for our safety and well-being. It is the responsibility of all Pakistanis to abide by the law even when no one is watching. If we take the example of traffic signals, we Pakistanis are usually like: “Police wala to nai khara”. This is a clear example that we do not respect the law
10. Should reject regional approach over national approach
Unfortunately, many political and non-political parties use the regional approach to ignite the hate in people and get benefited from the fire. We Pakistanis should reject the propaganda of those people. We should remember that we are not Balochi, Kashmiri, Pahari, Punjabi, Pathan, Sindhi, or any other. We are just Muslims and Pakistanis.
11. Unity, Faith, and Discipline:
These are the golden rules set by our founder for ourselves. These are all the things we need to prosper in life and make our country one of the greatest nations in the world.
