Well done, JWT!

Central Superior Services (CSS) is one of the most prestigious exams in Pakistan. Going through the very exam is also a tough task. But, the JWT magazine always provides great knowledge and guidance to the prospective. Most of the candidates fear the very first paper of the exam i.e. English essay. But, a few days before the essay paper, JWT smartly organized a guess paper. Like previous years, this time too it worked as 2 essays “Higher Education” and “Democracy” were there in the paper. This is a prodigious achievement of the tireless and unfeigned efforts of JWT team. Well done, team JWT! We, CSS aspirants, wish you best of luck for the other guess papers. I recommend all CSS aspirants to be in touch with most informative JWT magazine.

Child Abuse Scourge

In earlier 2016, a report revealed that during the past decade nearly 30,800 children were sexually abused in Pakistan. But, unfortunately, the government failed in finding out a solution of the problem. And the problem aggravated to such n extent that according to the latest numbers released by Sahil, a total of 1,764 cases of child abuse were reported from across the country in the first six months of 2017 alone. The number of cases being reported in different parts of Pakistan is also on the rise. A shameful manifestation of this disgusting act can be seen in Kasur that has become the centre of a massive child abuse scandal. The victims of brutal rapes and murders include even minor girls – aged between five and eight years. The government must come forwards with a pragmatic plan to cope with this vice.

Requiem for Siddiq Baloch

The legacy which Siddiq Baloch has left behind for the development of journalism in Balochistan is something very rich and is like an entrance to the world of journalism for the Baloch youth. His efforts are beyond description in words. Despite being in prison for almost four years, he was in the mood of having fun and enjoying. One would always see a happy smile on the face of this great man and this was what attracted everyone to him. He always worked for those whose human rights were violated. He was a true humanitarian who wrote about the realities he had witnessed. Bidding farewell to such a legend personality in our backward Baloch nation is something that leaves us in deep sorrow.

Predicaments of Muslim Ummah

Muslim rulers introduced the very concepts of good governance, accountability, justice and equality. Mughal rulers ensured that peace and justice is dispensed to everybody at a time when the West was going through a period of ignorance, poverty and chaos. But, with the turn of events, Muslims deviated from the right path and fell prey to sectarianism, imperialism and corruption. While the West focused on rationality, research and development. The Muslim world declined and the West developed.

Today, the Muslim world is witnessing poverty, gender inequality, political instability, terrorism and civil wars. World powers are destablising Muslim countries in general and the Middle East in particular – Iraq, Syria and Yemen are facing proxy wars and sectarianism. The West and Saudi Arabia are cooperating with each other to counter the influence of Iran in the Middle East.

The youth is facing unemployment in the Muslim countries. The women are oppressed and are not allowed to participate in politics. Rulers are exploiting their peoples and are not taking effective measures to provide quality education to the people.

The Muslim rulers must revisit their national and foreign policies in order to get rid of predicaments. They must emancipate people culturally and economically. They should create unity among themselves. They must focus on research and development and they should introduce industrialisation. They should avoid using force but they should use diplomacy to resolve conflicts. H. J. Morgenthau writes in his book Politics among Nations that diplomacy is the best way to preserve peace. If the Muslim countries take these steps, they will be able to achieve economic growth and political stability.
