Dear PTI Family,
Tundee baad-e-mukhalif se ne ghabra ae uqab
Ye tou chalti hey tujhe uncha urrane ke liye
If you are a PTI supporter and active in social media, then you probably come across a never ending barrage of facebook posts and tweets that are very critical of the very principles you stand for. No matter what you say or how convincing your argument is, it always leads to more debate and sometimes a hurl of abuse from both sides.
Did you notice that I said “both” sides? Yes, both. And I hate to admit it but we do behave irresponsibly sometimes. Although we all love Pakistan and we all agree that our country really needs a savior but the problem is that we may not always agree who our savior is. A debate starts and before we know it, it turns into a full fledge battle. But does it have to be that way? No, because we are Insafians; we stand for justice, peace and humanity; we “CAN’T” abuse in a debate. Period. Consider it like a boundary, a religion that stops you each time you are tempted to shout back. We may have family or friends who do not support PTI but if we treat them harshly, they will get even more rigid in their stance. So learn to coexist, agree to disagree and as our leader puts it “debate with logic, not abuse”.
Let us remind ourselves what Kaptaan said:
Considering that Pakistan has been existing in a state of turmoil ever since its existence, it’s no surprise that daily a new conspiracy floods the political scenario. Add to it terrorism, load shedding, inflation, and last but not the least, our daily dose of political debates bordering near hysteria; its no surprise that we all get a full fledge nervous breakdown at the end of the day. And sometimes, just sometimes we take it out on each other. It’s not because we don’t support PTI, it’s just that the stress of everything happening around us makes us very judgmental and we tend to be harsh with those who don’t agree with our views.
So, first of all – Let’s stick together. I know it is very hard for us to be in politics and remain sane but we have to show tolerance towards each other. If you see something you dont agree with, take the conversation in private. I’ve been there, disagreeing with other people over social media and trust me, rival parties not only take advantage of any harsh words that you use but also any signs of internal rifts. And as our Kaptaan puts it, only PTI can bring itself down. We have people who are leftists, rightists and then of course centrists. But, since PTI official policies are usually centrist so we have to compromise a little on our personal beliefs and opinions.
One thing we should always remember is that PTI has people from all walks of life, with all sorts of beliefs. It is a very vibrant mix and if handled the right way can be a treasure for the party and of course Pakistan. So, love should be the message of the day. It’s time we rose above our little disagreements and learned to tolerate each other’s opinion for a greater good. Let’s promise to treat each other with respect and good manners.
And this is not a lecture. Just a thought to share with you people. We have been stressed to our breaking points recently. Let’s not give in now. We give in, PTI loses and we ARE NOT going to let that happen.
PTI Zindabad !
Pakistan Paindabad !
