I am in the field of journalism for the last 22 years and I never remained affiliated with any political party or any religious groups as I have always been searching the truth. I am still unclear as what is the truth. At the moment I have fielded myself as candidate of the president of Peshawar Press Club. Though this post is not such important, but through this election has been trying to give a message to the poor lot of Pakistan and whole world that anything can be done in this world.
I just want to share my life with you a little bit. I have never been given the chance to get proper education as extreme poverty if the main hurdle in my education. But still I continued struggle and received master degree in political science from the University of Peshawar. I have appeared in the examination as private candidate. But at the time of my eduction I have also been working as journalist.
Last year I have also fielded myself as candidate for the post of president, but my colleagues have rejected me, but this time the situation is changed to some extent. Now I am hopeful that I shall be able to leave some impact in the election.
Here the question arises as what shall I do if I become president of Peshawar. Actually I still remember that the US citizens and people of whole world have attached great expectation with Barack Obama, but now I have been reading in newspapers that majority of Americans are unsatisfied with his performance. Actually a man cannot bring the real change. There must be change in the whole system.
My main agenda will be elimination of corruption. I still consider corruption is the main reason of terrorism. Actually the rulers have been promoting corruption so they can rightly be held responsible for terrorism in the whole world.
I have just written these few lines to get your response. I hope you will guide me on the right path as you have always given me good advices. Please write a few lines. I shall be grateful for your kindness and love.
Love and blessing to all.
