Pakistan parliamentarian, Senator Taj Haider of the PPP started a conversation about how the country has become the property of the ruling elite, and that all decisions were made in the interests of the rich.
“We have sent hundreds of thousands of Pakistanis abroad to work as labour and send foreign exchange; apparently in the national interest and claimed that soon it will be proved that offshore companies were also made in the national interest. The poor of this country will never get to decide their own fates,” Senator Haider said.
To this, Senator Sardar Mohammad Yaqoob Khan Nasar of the PML-N, remarked that if everyone were to become wealthy, there will be no one to grow wheat or to work as labour. “This is a system created by God, and He has made some people rich and others poor and we should not interfere in this system,” he said.
Senator Haider replied that socio-economic classes were man-made phenomena with which God had nothing to do with.
Senator Mohammad Usman Khan Kakar said that God created all people equal and that the poor were not meant to serve the rich.
