No more excuses for Ishaq Dar

The phrase “divine providence” is often used as a fallback excuse for politicians in Pakistan. It is a way of deflecting responsibility for their actions and shifting the blame to a higher power. However, when it comes from a sitting member of a federal cabinet, it can come across as an attempt to dodge accountability for their shortcomings.

In times of crisis, such as the recent power outage that plunged the entire country into darkness, the responsibility of the government to find a solution becomes all the more pressing. Instead of blaming previous administrations or relying on the divine, it is important for politicians to utilize the intellect and resources at their disposal to find innovative solutions to the country’s problems.

As the famous quote by Maulana Zafar Ali Khan states, “God never changed the conditions of nations till the desire of change is kindled in them.” It is up to the politicians to take the initiative and bring about change, rather than waiting for divine intervention.

This is especially true in the case of the finance minister, who holds a critical role in the country’s economic stability. Instead of relying on divine providence, the finance minister should focus on devising concrete plans to tackle the current issues, such as rising petrol prices and uncertainty in the currency market.

It’s been more than three months since the current administration took office, and it’s time for them to take responsibility for the country’s current state. Blaming the previous government and relying on divine intervention will only go so far. Instead, it is time for the Finance Minister and his colleagues to rely on their own intellect and come up with a plan to address the country’s current issues, such as the recent nationwide power outage and uncertainty surrounding the petrol and currency markets.

In the words of Maulana Zafar Ali Khan, “God never changed the conditions of nations Till the desire of change is kindled in them.” It’s time for the government to take action and implement change to improve the conditions of the nation. The country and its people can no longer afford to bear any more shocks.

In conclusion, it is important for politicians to take responsibility for their actions and find practical solutions to the problems faced by their country. Divine providence may provide comfort, but it is not a substitute for the hard work and determination required to bring about real change.
