Lets Try to Understand Which Government Form is good: Democracy vs. Monarchy
A monarchy is a form of government in which supreme power is held by an individual, who is the head of state; normally he is called as King of the state. His son becomes the king of the state after his death or he can put his father king in jail and declare himself as king.
Justice system in monarchy: Normally what king thinks right is the right justice No one is allowed to go against the wishes of king, its indirect rule that if you go against the king, you will get death punishment. Only religious head and Gurus can guide the king. In monarchy if king is good and educated, smart a state sees the progress. If king is not good or if king is good but addicted to wines and other things he will not be able to do justice to his job. In ancient times kingdoms were small, when kingdoms were small, kings paid attention to there state and this small state started to do progress. After this a period came when these kings started to capture the other kingdoms, Expansion of kingdom, his state. After this expansion kings started to remain busy in there programs and politics of Capturing other kingdoms, in this way they neglected there population and state. The people who can influence the king started to rob the people of the state with or without the knowledge of the king. Monarchy reached its height of doing wrongs to the population and this encouraged educated people to think and find new type of government system. And this gave birth to democracy, system of government where principles of liberty equality and justice will prevail. So in monarchy in short we know that now that there is only one king, he is supreme,
What king says is right, people population has to just obey the king, and people have no say in the government or any matter, any policy, without reason people have to obey the king. As well as his supporters .In a monarchy if king is good everything is good ,if king is bad everything is bad .Most important point is that in a monarchy people can never throw the king from his thrown .Generation after generation one family rules the kingdom forever . Hereditary rule is often a common characteristic.
In a monarchy people have very limited freedoms, if king likes gambling then gambling becomes legal, if don’t like then gambling becomes illegal. If king don’t like garlic then whole state may be banned to eat garlic. In monarchy everything depends on the mood of the king. In monarchy, religious leaders, gurus enjoy best life and status, and people have to follow there views also otherwise there is death punishment. In every successful monarchy you can find religious leaders and gurus and kings walk side by side in everything .What kings says is supported by church or mosque or temple and what church or mosque or temple says is supported by king . People of the state have no say in the government. King is god, one and only one person who has right to think, everything depends on his mood. Rule by dictator also comes under the Monarch. In monarchy normally females are forbidden to rule the state there are exceptions to this rule but they are limited. In monarchy from dressing to eating habits, science everything is decided by king. Monarchy looks very attractive but I will say just for a moment think, will you like to obey your father 100% without reason? Will you like to obey your father’s religious guru 100% without reason? If no, then you should think how you support the monarchy, if you can not obey your father how are you going to obey the king.
Let’s understand Democracy
Until now I am sure you understood how the democracy took the birth. Currently also democracy is growing it has not reach its peak, One day it will reach to its peak may be after 100 years or 1000 years.
Biggest problem with the democracy is that it is very slow form of government, this is reason I think people without thinking anything say that they like and prefer monarchy. Democracy means where a state ruler is chosen by people of the start by way of voting system .There are different types of democracies but finally people choose the state rulers whatever form of democracy they have. Democracy is the best form of government but it is in a beta state, it’s growing. Today if you see Pakistani democracy, I will say it is not democracy but it is just a mob rule that is learning very slowly what democracy Pakistan is a country where 50% Pakistani don’t know importance of voting. So a country where there is no 100% voting, is a baby form of democracy. About democracy I think we know all so I will not go into details but will change topic here little bit. I feel democracy is the best form of government today it is in a beta form of government where lot of experiments will be done by coming generations after generations. More the people are educated more progress we will see.
What should be real democracy?
A real democracy will be one when every individual will be protected by state for keeping his views and acts which are against state, religion which he will be able to say in the public or publish with the help of state. There will be no banning of books what so ever reason, but there will be debates on those topics and the writer will be challenged by others, this is democracy. Democracy is not the law of the majority but the protection of the minority.
Now let us have a look at condition of Pakistan
Nowadays every Pakistani is talking about the condition of Pakistan and according to them Pakistan is in court of revolution and soon a revolution is about to come due to Pakistani public.
Before starting this discussion about revolution, first let us see what revolution exactly is? Revolution is not only gathering so many people at one point or people boycotting on roads. But it is a thinking process and revolution is a perception of people. Every country and community has certain objectives and goals and based on those objectives perception develops, and when people starts accepting the perception then no power can stop revolution taking place. That community can easily achieve their goal which changes their thinking and perceptions.
Briefly we can say that revolution is actually changing the way of our thinking which can take particular community towards their goals. If we make our heart free from any sort of fear then none of the power or source can stop us from bringing revolution in our country.
If we look at countries where revolution occurred then we’ll find majority of them had monarchy/ kingdom. From France till Iran and other Arab countries where ever revolution occurred, at places where there was monarchy from a very long period of time, some countries had army rule but people of that country brought revolution. There may be countries with democracy that brought revolution. Now if we look at Pakistan there was never a system of tolerance, Pakistan has always been a democratic country. No doubt time to time we faced army rule. And those army officers also suffered pressure and opposition from public. Looking at current situation Pakistan has democratic government which has been appointed after public voting. But if we analyze the government and democratic system of Pakistan, it is not less then monarchy. In kingdom/monarchy crown or power remains in same family and that family or person has whole authority and this monarchy transfers from one person to another with in same family. And this continues for generations after generations, and ordinary person can not ever think of having the authority. Where as in democracy every individual has authority of going in public and people has full freedom of appointing their government through elections. Our democracy is not less than monarchy, Pakistan is always ruled by particular families and power is also transferred within their families. From brother to their younger brothers, from wife to their husband, and in the same manner power remain in hands of particular people. And these people get victory in elections like this country is their own property. Common people always suffer in their monopoly. And common man can never ever think of standing in elections. Therefore there should be revolution in Pakistan which diminish all this ruling forces and develops democracy in its real sense. And at least common man should also have some rights to take decision for their country.
In current situation majority of Pakistanis wants revolution to come but their fear builds a wall between them and revolution. The day when this wall of fear would be broken or removed from our hearts no power of world can stop us from bringing the revolution. Very soon with God’s blessing Pakistan will bring positive change and Pakistani people will get rid of this slavery forever.
