I am communicating this solution in an era of immense corruption, and deception that is widespread in Pakistan as well as additional fractions of the globe. Few people think that the answer of corruption is that if we become honest and able people then we will be capable to minimize the dilemma corruption. But in my view it is not a trouble with people only as it is the system that shapes these individuals’ behaviors and permits them to develop via corrupt means. It is the system that authorizes and allows corruption, filters the most corrupt and evil persons to acquire the peak levels of ruling. It is the system only which contributes and empowers more corruption.
As a result the rest of society also resorts to corruption in order to get by due to paying bribes or using ‘safarish’ and it is not only the police but also used to get a good job, to buy a judge or any other department official for that matter. So everybody feels that honesty is not rewarded and only way to succeed is through this corruption.
The only solution to this dilemma is that we not only remove corrupt individuals but also the corrupt system and replace it with a new system and new leadership. The new system that has been tried and tested is the Khilafat which will ensure a man who is pious meaning that he is Allah fearing will become the head of state. This will in itself create a positive atmosphere in all sectors of society.
The khilafat will prosecute corrupt officials, regardless of rank, if necessary as no one is above the law so no NRO-type law will be passed. This will set an example from the top on how to conduct the affairs of public office.
The reduction of corruption will also result in more funds being available to the state, enabling adequate salaries to be paid to state officials to ensure they are not tempted by necessity. The khilafat will ensure adequate justice by applying the Shariah Law and thus making sure that criminals are punished appropriately for their crimes. The khilafat will implement the Islamic economic system that will generate the wealth required to earn an honest living, leading to a decrease in corruption amongst state officials such as police, customs etc.
I hope these examples highlight how the system in Pakistan facilitates corruption and that it is high time to change the system as well as the leadership. Also I hope that the examples of the Khilafat I have given will be an impetus for the people to work for change not only in leadership but also the corrupt system.
