Pakistan needs a new constitution

CHITRAL: The current constitutional imbroglio warrants that the document needs to be revisited and rewritten in accordance with the altered situation and ground realities. A constitution that has so many lacunas and loop holes that can be exploited and interpreted to own benefit by any shrewd lawyer, any time, needs to be redone. After all the document has not come from heaven. It was framed by politicians of the time according to needs of the time. Now, the needs have changed and therefore the document needs to be amended accordingly.

To begin with, the constitution should be absolutely elaborate which it is not. The UN charter is written in French instead of English because the former is a much elaborate language than English. To explain it, the French version of the English phrase “What is it?” is “qu’est-ce que c’est”? meaning “what is it that is”?. Such is the requirement of elaboration in writing a constitution.

The constitution of Pakistan should be re-written for the benefit of Pakistan, and preferably the system of government should be defined as not formed through politics or elections but through the process of Meritocracy. Only then can we avoid perpetual horse trading, constitutional violations and military interventions etc which plague our country today. .. CN report, 04 Apr 2024

One thought on “Pakistan needs a new constitution

  1. Pakistan needs Muslims. Whenever there will be Muslims in large number in any place that place will be free from man made problems. Arabia was a strife torn country with wild and weird kind of people. When Islaam came to Arabia 1400 years ago, things started changing. Wild and weird kind of people started becoming loveable, likeable kind of people. When non Muslims came in contact with Muslims they were impressed by the way Muslims behaved and hence became Muslims, thus Islaam spread like wild fire in Arabia.
    So when in Pakistan poeple will start becoming Muslims things will change. Change the way it changed in Arabia 1400 years ago.
    Wherever there will be Muslims, there shall be peace. Peace comes by the practice of Udl wul Ehsaan. Wherever there will be Muslims in large number Udl wul Ehsaan shall be seen outpouring in the deeds of majority of people.
    No one becomes any thing by just claiming to be what they claim to be. No one. No one should forget that claiming to be a Muslim and not having honesty, pleasant behaviour and Udl wul Ehsaan in one’s thoughts, words and deeds is as good as not being a Muslim.
    Majority of mankind can be seen to be making a false claim about their religion when they cannot prove their claim through their deeds.
