Menace of VIP culture.

In civilized and educated societies of the world, every human being is treated as equal and 'Very Important Person'(VIP) right from the Head of the State/Government to the labourer. It is so because human life and respect are considered to be more important than any other thing in these countries. Nobody is given special treatment or protocol because of his/her accumulated wealth and political and official status.

It would have been excellent if similar type of treatment would have been witnessed by all the 200 million Pakistanis in their country and all would have been treated as VIPs on the basis of their equality before the State. The 1973 Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan grants equal respect and treatment to all its citizens irrespective of their caste, colour, creed, religion or any other political, official or social status. So much so, Islam also prohibits superiority of human beings on any grounds except for superiority on the basis of righteousness.

Unfortunately, such commandments both of our religion and the Constitution have greatly been violated, whereby common man of the country has been degraded and humiliated by the so-called VIPs. The fate of the common man is being written by these VIPs, whereby every effort is being made by them to push these common men against the wall so that they remain unable to stand for their genuine political, economic and social rights, by rejecting the status quo.

Until and unless the common man of this country would stand against his rights and resists status quo, nothing is going to happen to wipe out such artificially created VIP culture from our deeply status-oriented society. Let's see how PM Imran Khan handles this menace of VIP culture from the country, as he has been saying for the last so many years about prevalence of VIP culture and emphasised on its elimination {of course} from Pakistan.
