A dialogue between two friends about democracy and discipline
Basit: It is correct to say that discipline and democracy go hand in hand together.
Asma: Without discipline democracy becomes mobocracy.
B: Democracy does not mean a licence to do anything and everything.
A: But some people misuse the liberty granted under a democratic government.
B: It is wrong to misuse the freedom in a democracy.
A: In reality an indiscipline people neither deserve democracy nor they can make a success of it.
B: Democracy grants every citizen certain right but these rights cannot be possible without performing certain duties.
A: You are absolutely right.
B: In other words we can say that for the enjoyment of rights every person must perform certain duties also.
A: You are right, Basit. Because without performing certain duties no person can be granted any rights.
B: Today we can see in the world that only those countries have made progress which are discipline nations.
A: Japan and Germany both are today highly advanced countries due to their discipline people.
B: It is then right to say that if in a democracy discipline is lacking then it is sure to be doomed.
A: Democracy has become successful in those countries only where people are discipline.
B: Democracy is great success in Switzerland because the Swiss people are highly discipline.
A: On the other hand democracy has badly in many countries of Asia and Africa due to the lack of discipline.
B: In Pakistan also we have adopted democratic type of government. Let us then inculcate the spirit of discipline in our people and make democracy a success in our country.
A: This is the only way that we can make our nation strong and prosperous.
B: We all agree with your conclusion.
