Pakistani youth are known for their patriotic spirit and feel for nationalism. But at a time when there are internal conflicts based on ethnicities, it is a great move by School of Leadership to launch a national campaign, called Shabash Pakistan. This national campaign will make efforts to spark “Pakistaniaat” in the youth. Pakistan’s talented youth have so much potential to offer to this country and the world. The youth are urged to be ambassadors of peace and prosperity.
The programme will also aim toward achieving Pakistan’s soft and positive image on international forums. Amidst so much negative propaganda about Pakistan in the media, both at home and abroad, the youth are feeling the burden of keeping up to their hopes of making a better tomorrow. For this reason, the School of Leadership wants to make Pakistani youth feel proud of their nationality.
Four universities are involved in Shabash Pakistan with a series of three one-day sessions being conducted over the course of the next three months. It will bring the zeal back in the youth and will put them in a positive mindset to make the change needed desperately by this country and its masses.
The participants were expected to answer the question, ‘What will I personally do to bring positive change?’. This is a question that every citizen of Pakistan must ask himself. Such campaigns should be started in schools and colleges too, where the future of Pakistan rests. Those who are not privileged to end a university due to their financial handicap must be targeted through such campaigns of nationalism. When a game of cricket or any natural disaster can bring the Pakistanis together, then the youthful Pakistanis can also be united under one flag if they are allowed their fair share of growth.
