(Zarb-e-Kaleem-169) Jumhooriat

Jumhooriat
Democracy

Iss Raaz Ko Ek Mard-e-Farangi* Ne Kiya Fash
Har Chand Ke Dana Isse Khila Nahin Karte

A certain European* revealed a secret, 
Although the wise do not reveal the core of the matter.

Jumhooriat Ek Tarz-e-Hukumat Hai Ke Jis Mein
Bandon Ko Gina Karte Hain, Tola Nahin Karte!

Democracy is a certain form of government in which 
Men are counted but not weighed.

  *Astan Dal
*Stendhal.

  2. The democracy is same as monarchy or kingship,Monarchy is one man show and Democracy is group circus.
    In both cases Laws are made to gain vested interests.
    The only way to prosper as humans is Laws from the Creator.
