    No sane mind can deny the fact that Pakistan is a multi-lingual, multi-ethnic and multi-cultural society. Democracy calls for unity but also respects diversity. The divisions prevailing in our society can be addressed only through democracy. I am very optimistic about the future of democracy in our country. The reasons why I am optimistic are as follows. We have a population consisting of 65 percent youth that cannot be ruled without their will. This youth will surely protect democracy in our country. We have a vibrant media, which will support democracy to protect its own freedom. We have an independent judiciary, which has already said ‘no’ to a dictator. We have the kind of geo-political position that our neighbors and world powers cannot afford dictatorship in our country. Both major political parties of the country have already faced the music due to dictatorships, so it is expected that they will not support military rule in the future. Besides the above mentioned favorable factors, it is an acknowledged fact that bad governance, a faltering economy, the spectra of conflict among state institutions, polarization of society on ethnic and religious bases and the poor human rights situation are the big giants that will pave the way for the next dictatorship. If we want democracy to flourish in our country, we have to address these dangers. Political parties themselves should introduce democratic reforms in their internal structure. The government, along with the Opposition, should pass a bill in favour of elections inside the political parties and it will be appreciated if it is banned to be the president of a political party for more than three terms. The political leaders should do their utmost to give a better performance for gaining the wholehearted support of the masses. Before doing anything illegal, we should keep in mind that this country has no option other than democracy.
