As Larry J. Sabato once said, “Every election is determined by the people who show up.”
Naik Muhammad, a resident of Sariab Road, Quetta handicapped by both his feet got to the polling station to vote in the by elections.
Walking on his hands, Naik Muhammad, being a responsible citizen thinks that a vote is something one owes to his/her country.
“It is an obligation on us”
However, after covering an unimaginable distance in the sweltering heat of Quetta, Naik Muhammad reached the polling station only to find out that his vote isn’t registered in the particular area but there was nothing that could kill his determination.
“Today till 5 pm wherever my registration is, I will find it and cast my vote.”
It is with this zeal and fervor that democratic societies can be taken to unprecedented heights.
Naik Muhammaad is an example for all those who fail to fulfill their responsibility towards their homeland. Despite of being blessed with every convenience in the world.
If people like Naik Muhammad can do it, what excuse do we have?
“Elections belong to the people. It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire then they will just have to sit on their blisters.” –Abraham Lincoln
