    Quoted today off Pakistan's Express Tribune Newspaper - should be compulsory reading for all in that country

    reference article : ‘Pakistan’s creation pointless if it fails to become Islamic welfare state’ – The Express Tribune

    I will extract merely 2 paragraphs as they are well wrtiten and need little editing or explanation;-


    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Wednesday that Pakistan’s creation had been pointless if the country fails to become an Islamic welfare state

    The PTI chairman said that there was no concept of welfare states in Europe and that they had taken this concept from the Muslim world. “They formed all the Scandinavian states based on this concept. They call it Omar’s law there. We need to bring our culture back to our own land.”

    end of quote

    Well it would be great to get more comment from Imran to see what he may have meant around that topic ....it's the beginning of wisdom for Pak

    Imran Khan will eventually either flee Pakistan or end up like Zulfi Bhutto.

    Pukes think this guy is gonna convert Pakistan into South Korea ... :rolleyes:
    Imran Khan is like a last hope for majority of Pakistanis, for them if he fails then nothing can save Pakistan from the clot of Jihadis and this increases the probability of failure
    But seeing his obsession with Cancer Hospitals, we can certainly expect a Cancer Hospital in every district of Pakistan.... :rotflmao:

    not sure if he will be held to his word later should the inevitable happen to pak - but it his chances of winning the next election are much more than an outsider's chance - there a re a whole load of ppl who are through with other parties and would like to give him a chance - so i wouldnt be surprised at all to see him there even alone or in a coalition

    To become a welfare state one needs a good economy, state policies in this regard, and the most important thing "Intentions to become a welfare state",
    So far as I see Pakistan is not an "Islamic Welfare state" but an "Islamic Warfare State" :dude: actually when I read the title of the thread first time it seemed like Warfare state :laugh:

    Re: Imran Khan' Quote: Pakistan's creation POINTLESS if not an Islamic welfare stat

    Imran Khan seems to overlook the most fundamental axiom of life.

    You can't be an effin popper nation and a welfare state at the same time. The idea itself is inherently contradictory. This also applies to Nehruvian socialists.

    Can the GCC nations be welfare states? Sure because they have cash shooting up from the orifices in the ground. Can they remain welfare states? Not after said fountain of cash goes dry.
    Don't want to digress too much: Pakistan's polity has instilled this fantasy into the people that they too will stumble upon some magical fountain that will just rain down cash just like it did for the oil rich gulf states. They did and still believe that their geographic "strategic location" makes them indispensable. Every Pakistani leader since Ayub Khan has been obsessed with this "strategic location" nonsense (just see their public addresses). Unfortunately turns out that the world can survive without Pakistan's supposed indispensable strategic location unless there are wars to be fought from time to time which in turn has yielded in nothing but disaster.

    Crediting Islam for European socialism is patently asinine. For one, it is the rest of the world that has taken the concept of the "nation state" from Europe along with pretty much everything else in the modern world. And incidentally everything in the modern world is antithetical to Islamism. Imran Khan and the Muslim world at large needs to stop deluding himself/itself. I think there's ample evidence proving that Islam isn't a "grand solution" to anything in this day and age. Pakistan has Islam but no means whatsoever of becoming a welfare state. Imran Khan's will do his people no good by perpetuating these delusions.

    Pakistani leaders never cease to amuse me because they literally keep making the same mistake over and over again expecting a different result. There isn't a single Pakistani leader or potential leader who has had a healthy enough relationship with reality in order to admit that there are no miracles out there. If Pakistan wants to be a functional nation state it is going to have to do it the hard way- farm by farm, village by village, factory by factory.

    Imran Khan has indirectly accepted that creation of Pak is POINTLESS.

    That's the Pakistani delusional education system speaking. Fake identity, fake world history, and now even fake concepts such as Scandinavian "Omar's law".

    To top it all, this man is hailed as potentially the best Pakistani leader to come out on the national scene! A youth icon of sorts. A people's leader! It isn't much of a surprise that a delusional society would hail a delusional man as their potential leader.

    Re: Imran Khan' Quote: Pakistan's creation POINTLESS if not an Islamic welfare stat

    Guys......it really depends on what your definition of a "Welfare state" is.

    The Scandinavian form of welfare is not within the reach of most countries.
    Even the Scandinavians may not be able to afford it soon.

    If your definition of welfare is to just provide basic education and water, sanitation, and the basic essentials to the poorest communities in the country -
    then that may be more doable.

    I dont think Imran is dumb enough to think that a country that produces almost nothing like Pakistan is going to be able to dole out welfare benefits like Sweden or Denmark !!!

    The obsession started with Jinnah when he pushed the idea to the US, carried on by their leaders to follow. Ayub Khan was just one of the many to cling on to the idea.

    Since it is not a welfare state as of yet, Is this the reason Pakistani's suck up the welfare system in Canada? Some of them collect child benefits even though children are living in native Pakistan. Go ahead make your country a Welfare state so that we can get rid of crooks form our land.
