Ig­no­rance and cor­rup­tion

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - HASHIM ABRO

Ig­no­rance and cor­rup­tion are treated as evils in the civ­i­lized and demo­cratic world but un­for­tu­nately both are el­e­vated, glam­or­ized and glo­ri­fied in our Pak­istani so­ci­ety. That’s why, one can find sev­eral ig­no­ra­muses and cor­rupt to core placed at the helm of af­fairs and many of them reem­ployed just af­ter their re­tire­ment and given the re­peated ex­ten­sions by the peo­ple in power and au­thor­ity.

It is no­ticed that these ig­no­ra­mus and cor­rupt to the core peo­ple pro­mote a ”cul­ture of false­hood”, a “cul­ture of cor­rup­tion” and “po­lar­iza­tion” in the pub­lic sec­tor or­ga­ni­za­tions but who cares in this coun­try where com­pe­tence and char­ac­ter do not mat­ter at all, but in­stead, the con­nec­tions and con­tacts are the hall­marks of suc­cess. —Islamabad
