A Story of the Generation Z
July 18, 2020

Do you still remember that story of the farmer who gave the bundle of sticks to his sons and said them to break it but they failed to do so? I bet you still remember that. What was the lesson of that story? Yes, you are right. Unity is strength.

Our Quid, the father of this nation, Muhammad Ali Jinnah also believed in the power of unity, and therefore, he gave this formula of success to his beloved nation in the form of motto. That, unfortunately, his nation lost somewhere in Pakistan. However, the letters of that motto are still displayed in Islamabad. The huge letters affirming Unity, Faith, and Discipline can be seen on the roadside from far away.

Take a pause here and think where we stand as a nation? Are we still following our motto?

I know you will also face the reality punch as I did. Because we are divided, divided on the basis of cast, provinces, sects and political parties.

However, from this divided nation there are some people who took a leap of faith and start spreading their Quid’s motto in and outside the Pakistan.

Hassan Rauf Awan is one of them.

He is a 21-year-old Pakistani entrepreneur who is spreading the message of unity among different nations under the platform of United South Asia. Hassan made this platform to spread peace and unity among South Asian Countries.

South Asia is the second-largest growing economy in the world. Pakistan, India, Nepal, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, and Burma all of these 8 countries are under this platform.

His another work that inspired me a lot is Bethak. In Pakistan, where some people treat English language as a class and let down those who speak Urdu or Punjabi, this boy from Hazara is destroying such stereotypes and spreading the Urdu language in the UK.

He holds different Urdu poetry nights like Bethak to keep our language alive even there.
