President Alvi urges all stakeholders to find a solution to the country’s conditions
Arif Alvi stresses need for dialogue, says ‘no party is anti-Pakistan’
President Dr. Arif Alvi has urged all the stakeholders to find a solution to the country’s conditions.
In his opinion piece published on Wednesday, President Alvi maintained that no political party has been anti-Pakistan.
“Where do we go from here? I urge everybody to take a deep breath. I will stick my neck out as I have learned from experience and history both, and state that no political party today has ever been anti-Pakistan or that it comprises traitors. Excesses have been committed by all during our history, out of frustrations including during the MRD. When all avenues are closed, anger in all its dimensions is the only route left which then colors the national landscape into a lethal red,” Mr. President said.
The President added: “I have urged all stakeholders to ‘Think Again’, and have even gifted a book of the same title by Adam Grant to many of them. An outstanding example of today is the remarkable peace achieved between Iran and Saudi Arabia. A great achievement of their leaders, kudos to HH Mohammad bin Salman and Irani leadership along with the positive role played by our friend China. This signifies a major reversal of thinking by these great leaders, who would go down in history for ending decades of animosity.”
Terming the peace deal between Iran and Saudi Arabia as a testimony of great leadership, Arif Alvi urged all Pakistani stakeholders to ‘think again’.
“Can we find similar greatness in our leadership?” he asked.
President Dr. Arif Alvi said that the first and last thing elders would say would be to cool down, learn from the past, and save the family.
“I personally know there are many on all sides of the spectrum, including in the establishment, but everyday events and hot exchanges between them for their perception into dangerous arguments, even unrealistic questions are floated like, ‘Are you with Pakistan or against Pakistan?’,” he noted.
“The first and last thing elders would say would be to cool down, learn from the past, and save the family. Our friends who have a clear view from outside are urging us to. Those nations achieve greatness which learn from history. Those who don’t, are forgettable dots in the sands of time. I have been urging all that we desperately need to find a solution. I am confident that Inshallah, better sense will prevail and with the spirit of forgiveness we will succeed in sorting out our disputes. A lot of work is to be done, and many golden chapters are to be written. Long Live Pakistan!” he concluded.
