Cromwell, Napoleon, Bismarck are names immortal in the history of Europe. Their names are at once great and awe-inspiring., Stalin, Mussolini, Hitler are considered bigger editors of those illustrious heroes. The former trio reached the height before the coming of democracy; the latter trio brought dictatorship. When I think of what they have done for their countries, I am also tempted to think of dictatorship in Pakistan. There is no charm in kingship or in being the president, If only I became a dictator of Pakistan for some years!
For the outset I shall issue an ordinance to put down communal spirit throughout the country. Discussions and criticism on religious basis will be bended. Under ordinary circumstances, I shall not, however, interfere with the private religion of individuals. At the same time I shall introduce of lingua franca throughout the length and breadths of Pakistan. It would mean some trouble, but great reforms are never made in easy chair. Thus unity of Pakistan will be achieved within a short time.
As for the political administration, I shall have to go in for drastic change, I shall continue the legislatures, but their system of election will have to be changed. I shall continue the cabinet system but it shall be under my control. I shall try to look to the details of administration and shall discourage bribery and corruption.[the_ad id=”17141″]
Then will follow the economic changes. Like Russia I shall prepare a five-year plan for the economic reconstruction of Pakistan. Rural industries will be encouraged. The establishment on new industries will be encouraged by me with direct or indirect help. I shall take special care to develop the shipping Industry. Canals will be dug, railway, will be constructed and aerodromes will be built. I shall appoint à committee to supervise to the production of goods and to establish coordination in various industries. I do not want to imitate Bolshevism, Fascism or Nazism, but at the same time I shall see that no person will go without food or clothing any day.
Pakistan is suffering from many social diseases. The only cure is a strong-handed policy. Expenses on social functions will be brought to the minimum. Polygamy will be stopped. Side by side I shall revise the present educational curriculum. Technical schools and colleges will be opened at important centers. Education will be made compulsory and illiteracy will be made a penal office. Every town and village will be required to have a library and a dispensary. The State will undertake to provide well-equipped hospitals in every district. No one will be allowed to beg in the streets; but at the same time the State will make sufficient provision for the needy and the poor.
But like the foreign policy of other dictators, my foreign policy will not be in the latest aggressive. I shall have a strong and well-equipped army in Pakistan. But world peace will be my first consideration. I shall not banker after colonies; nor shall I try to get wealth from other countries by the force of arms.
