Yes, voting was rigged.
Yes, Punjab decided the fate of the nation.
Yes, trains and buses and roads and laptops were chosen over freedom and education and civilization and peace.
Yes, several hearts were broken. Several mouths went shut. Several heads turned away and gave up.
But Nawaz Sharif stood right on one thing: change will come when Pakistanis want change, when they are ready for it. So we need to ask ourselves:
- do we really want change?
- are we ready for change?
- what are we willing to do for the betterment of our nation?
- was our job only to vote for the Bat-man of our miserable Gotham City? Were we supposed to stop there and stand back and Imran Khan do his magic?
No! So what if we lost the election? We know it was unfair, we know it was rigged. So now, as true as a PTI supporter is supposed to be, our job is to resist! Is to fight back!
Reject their laptops. Refuse to ride their metro buses and trains. Fuck the new roads. Fight back their corruption. Stand up and unite and show them change is what we wanted, and change is what we will die for.
Never forget: a leader is always a representation of the true nature of its population.
- If we think our duty was only to vote, the leader will decide his job was only to be voted for the chair. And reign on it like a mother fucker.
- If we shut up and stay quiet, our leader will shut up and stay quiet about not fulfilling the promises he made to us.
- If we are really too cowardly to resist, our leader elected will be too cowardly to resist outside foreign imperialism and pressure.
We as a nation are the only ones who can still make a difference. If we want to stop the bloodshed, the rape, the power outrages, the rich and uneducated from taking over - we should not stop on the first sign of defeat. We possess the power of freewill - we possess the power of resistance, we possess the courage to bring the change Imran Khan promised.
Wake up, Pakistan!
