Foul language polluting environment badly ................................................ A small step towards China- Pakistan Economic Corridor ................................................ France backs Palestinians: Good
AUTUMN or early winter is a time of the year when people enjoy crisp cool weather and marvel at the transforming landscape as tree leaves turn from lush green to gorgeous shades of yellow, orange, red, purple and brown but regrettably our dear politicians are polluting the environment badly. Though expression of one’s sentiments in a civilized manner has never been the hallmark of our political milieu but a serious deterioration in the situation has been witnessed during the last 100 days or so.
Dharnas would soon be over but they would, for ever, be remembered in the chequered political history of the country for use of highly indecent language by both sides and to such an extent that it amounts to spoiling and frustrating the youth. This has become almost daily routine with one leader using foul language and therefore, attracting a ‘befitting’ response from the other side. The attitude of these leaders, convey a vivid impression as if they are contesting a match for exchange of harsh and indecent language. This happened once again on Friday with Imran Khan using undesirable words and language against PML(N) leadership and invited severe and harsh reaction from Khawaja Saad Rafiq. Although Khawaja was sitting in the company of leaders like Senator Pervaiz Rashid, Anusha Rehman and Muhammad Zubair, all known for their decent and cool behaviour but their company did not influence the mind of Khawaja, who misses no opportunity to attack his opponents in free for all language. The bad manner displayed by him were nothing but boyish and harsher temperament and one may say very offending and even condemnable. This is not appropriate for a leader and that too a member of the Federal Cabinet to speak language that is used by some sections in bazaars and fruit and vegetable markets, especially when you are representing a party and that too in power. We are members of Islamic society that requires us to demonstrate proud virtues and inculcate a sense of decency in our younger generation. We would, therefore, urge the top leadership of both the warring parties to ensure civilized conduct by their colleagues.
