The hopes of youth for a world free of poverty, unemployment
and inequality make them important part of a nation’s development. They desire
a world free of those races which are based on color, language and gender. So,
their role in building a nation occupies the central place. I believe that
youth is the mind of the nation and the biggest power of a nation lies in it
because the hunger, desire, motivation and high energy of the youth can either
destroy the nation or build the nation. As we know that young people have an
enthusiasm and passion for improving their country, which has to be regulated
and utilized in right way. The countries which utilize their youth in an
accurate manner are more developed. On the contrary, the countries which fail
to realize the importance of the youth lag behind in every department of life.
This is one of the reasons of the backwardness of Pakistan. Pakistan is a
country where more than fifty percent population is comprised of young people.
Even with this majority, the country is still lagging behind as compared to
other developed nations of the world. The major reason behind this dilemma is
that our youth has lost its national pride and do not even think about the
prosperity of this country because a huge percentage of young people is engage
in finding the ways to go to abroad and settle there for the
rest of their lives. They are even ready to do this by hook or by crook.
This is due to the reason that they believe that the basic
facilities of life cannot be fulfilled in Pakistan and for this reason they
blame the government. I believe some sort of this is true but everyone knows
that it takes two to make a quarrel. So, there are some faults for which the
youth is also responsible. The biggest fault of them is that they spend most of
their time in vulgar activities like movies, video games and
so on. Another reason is that they are going far away from the Islam and from
traditions of our society; they always try to follow the foreign culture while
living in an Islamic society which is completely opposite the foreign culture.
On the contrary, they are also facing the basic problems that are taking place
in the country like the financial issues, job opportunities are
limited etc. Developed countries are successful because they
consider their youth as the important part of the nation and provide them education, employment, recreational
activities, etc. such healthy and competitive environment prepares the youth to
lead the country, which proves
that they understand their youth as worthy.
Only proper guidance and direction can bring the youth on right track
that is the good education can make them great leaders of tomorrow, they need to learn skills to do the job that their country’s economy
needs. They also need to practice how to read, write, think, understand,
analyze, and discuss the issues their country faces. This can surely ensure rapid national development as the entire success
of a nation depends on the youth
