Make 14th August ~ a day of REVIVAL

This year, our national Independence Day, has come with lots of greivances and hardships. With more than 10,000 square kilometers (4,000 square miles) of Pakistan under water, the flood is “Pakistan’s worst natural disaster” since the country’s creation 63 years ago, and has set back the nation’s development by many years, according to Pakistan’s Prime Minister Mr. Yousuf Raza Gilani.

Floods have left many areas beyond outside help or communication, knocking out cell phone towers and ripping away roads. Thousands are without electricity after grid stations and transformers collapsed, Pakistani television reported.

The flood has submerged an area as large as Lebanon, overwhelming relief efforts by the government and UN agencies. “Our stockpiles are nearly exhausted,” and trucks hauling tents have been blocked for a week by flooded roads, the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, said in an e-mailed message. The number of people suffering from the massive floods in Pakistan exceeds 16 million - more than the combined total of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the United Nations said on 9th August 2010.

Moreover, international aid remains low this this time as compared to 2005 earthquake disaster according to Guardian UK :


We, the people of Pakistan are the final hope after the Almighty. We can really make the relief efforts successful and help bringing life back to normal.

The only thing we need to do is to go out and find out the agencies / groups carrying the relief goods and join them in whatever capacity we fit in. Do whatever you can to help victims, no matter physically or verbally. Remember, your each step and initiative is going to create a history of makeover of a great nation.

Take it as a good chance to learn how to survive and work towards the REBUILDING of our country.

The destruction has been massive. The loss has been immense, yet We survive.. We go on.. And it clearly defines our physical & spiritual strengths. Our beliefs in Almighty and our own will can do wonders and they surely will.. WE will survive and stand up again as a better and sturdy nation.

In 1947's Ramadan, we got independence. In 2010's Ramadan, there's need to rebuild it and regain our strength. Lets move forward...

Make this 14th August a day of REVIVAL of our hopes and strengths.

Make this day of Independence, a day to remember in history..
May Allah help us in these difficult times . Ameen.



  1. Agreed with you, we should take the chance given to us by Almighty ALLAH and at-least now become united as a nation to rebuild our country.
    ALLAH will only help us f we show true determination & devotion towards HIS greatest blessing upon us (Pakistan). Hope on this Independence Day we'll stand as 1 unit under 1 flag with Belief & Disciplined approach & to Rebuild Pakistan as per the dreams of founders; Hazrat Quaid-e-Azam & Allama Iqbal in particular.

  2. we have done alot and no doubt about it but still there is much more to be done. we have to rebuilt what we got 63 years back as it is the matter of our home our pride

  3. We are not feeling the gravity of the matter yet, otherwise we would have done much more than what we are doing right now.
    (lets make it the turning point)

  4. ik INQUILAB ki kiran jo dikh rahi hai tujhe..isi SAILAB ki mojon mein jagmagai gi ~ For Pakistan

    Dear Rumaisa

    I admire you aim and thoughts, but how did you identify the right youth of pakistan ? You are in gulf and writing online and the youth which can access your thoughts is only the that class which have enough resource to do so. So how you will deliver to the other who are not well enough, who dont understand the game plan of our statemen and dont have any right guideance.
    Here in pakistan the issue is awareness about self and what power we have which is cause of INQILAB.

    My comments are critical but these are very fundamental for INQILAB.
