Yar 1Muhammad Asfand Yar2017-10-0265 Farhana Shahzad Writing and Communication (Section#10)Monday, 17th March, 2014.Pakistan is better off Being Ruled by a Dictator than by a Democratically Elected GovernmentAbraham Lincoln defined democracy as "government of people, by the people and for the people". In developed countries the rule of dictators is always looked down upon. The dictatorship is considered to be the worst form of government since it deprives the people off their basic rights of participating in the affairs of their country.While critically analyzing the history of Pakistan from 1958 to 2014 the period/rule of dictatorship seems to be better and fruitful for it rather than so called democracy. Our country has made rapid economic and social progress during dictatorship than the democratic period. Our politician parties lack merit, fairness, openness and discipline in their ranks. What about the existing political structure, money, connections, bradri, greed, force, threats, violence, police, patwaris and more? The era of general Ayub Khan is still remembered as "The Golden Decade". During the period of his rule of eleven years (1958-1969), first land reforms were introduced in 1959, Indus water treaty was signed in 1960 and the use of chemical fertilizers, better seeds and mechanized agriculture production was initiated which was termed as "Green Revolution". Industries developed during 1960-1965. Mangla dam and Tarbela dam were constructed during his period. These two dams produce five thousand megawatts electricity for our country and store million acres of water for irrigation. Housing schemes were introduced on a wide scale, a number of schools, colleges, universities, medical colleges and polytechnic institutes were opened.On the other hand, Pakistan did not make much progress during the reign of democratic ruler i.e. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto (1972 to 1977). He adopted such policies which had created economic, political, social and industrial chaos in the society. He had antagonized the industries of landowners by his policies of nationalization. Corruption and nepotism were on the rise during his regime. This hampered the progress of Pakistan. He got confined in egotism and became his own prime admirer, getting boldly impulsive and taking string of actions which gave room to his opponents to high light him as a man who has lost touch with the masses and was totally absorbed in his own definition of modernism and social progress. Likewise, other democratic rulers i.e. Benazir Bhutto (1988-1990 & 1993-1996), Nawaz Sharif (1990-1993, 1997-1999 & 2013 to up till now) and Asif Ali Zardari (2008-2013) could not prove themselves efficient and capable to run the government effectively.In reality, democracy is a corrupt form of government, which is as oppressive as any inherited dynasty ought to be. Democracy is a spoiled form of government in which heads are counted and thumbs stamps authorize those who do not deserve. Democracy...
