Sallust, a great philosopher argues, “By union the smallest states thrive, by discord the greatest destroyed.” The fall of Soviet Empire
with piles of nuclear arsenals but frail national sentiments, while miraculous victory of organized-Hizbollah, are manifestations of
Sallest’s claim. Hamza Amir in his book “Pakistan- an overdeveloped state” has revealed the fact that after independence, the
governing class was highly educated, on the pattern of the British mind set, while on the contrary the masses were miserably
illiterate. This huge gap created management crisis.
National integration is a process of achieving national cohesion, stability, prosperity, strength, and feelings of being united as a
nation. Pakistan has faced varying degrees of religious, ethnic, linguistic, and political problems that are often in conflict with our
national interest. To guard against all external as well as internal challenges to the solidarity and security of Pakistan, a well knitted
and integrated nation is a must. Lack of confidence and faith in the future of Pakistan speaks volume of our failings. All the turmoil
and unrest in the country cannot be entirely placed on the external forces and our enemies. The brute and the savage force in an
individual, which is basically harnessed by positive aspects of education, tends to get unleashed in different directions and causes
serious disruptions within society.
Factors fuelling the aggravated situation:
Feudal consider enlightenment as a challenge to their age old oppressive hold over their surfs and have a greater stake in the status
quo. Due to large holding and wealth, is always politically active in decision making regarding the common masses. Thus the power
continues to flow from feudalistic order of the society rather than a broad based popular public support. The Urban leadership,

Pakistan has been divided between Enlightened and Conservative Muslims, particularly after 9/11.these opposing forces are putting
all their energies to falsify the other at the cost of national image and stability. Corruption is so deeply rooted in our public and
private life that it is threatening the very fabric of our society. An individual finds no fair way to get his legitimate rights and he feels
frustrated against this set up of looting and cheating. Caste/ Tribal system: Centuries old cast and tribal system prevailing in all
provinces is very decisive in nature. It has fragmented the society and put the people in the watertight compartments. The tribal
chieftain, making full use of their terrible ignorance and economic dependence, are pushing them into the swamp of poverty and
frustration. Bearded war Lords: Lust for money and power with a robust desire to govern the country, some of the religious leaders
have turned Deeni Madresas into terrorists organizations by attracting the poor youth to their free education program. The few
violent hands can dismantle the whole state structure, as is frequently envisaged in suicide bombings. Higher and costlier Educating
is only providing the chosen elite control the policy making process, thus excluding the majority of deserving and passionate youth
turning them into frustrated souls. Absence of quick and cheap justice has minimized the role of Law and order agencies, forced the
victims to take vengeance by the dint of their own power and introduced a culture of intolerance and violence. The Colonial Masters...
