Serious collective and effective Political Activism by the Pakistan Americans and Muslim has been almost non-existent. This community for decades has contributed to millions of jobs and billions of dollars to the US economy. It is our own fault that our voice has never been heard in Washington DC. This Mid-term election year can be the start of our real Political Activism by making every single voting age Pakistani American and other Muslims go to the Voting booth this year. Did you know that if we all voted 3-4% of the Muslims will end up having voting power of almost 9-10%? If you did this every election I guarantee US Lawmakers will be begging for your votes in 6-8 years. Try it.

It is the logical cycle that is forcing the change. None of us can stop it even if we wanted to. The Politicians, Businessmen, Landlords who mismanaged Pakistan in the past 5 decades are now frail and old or getting old. It was the Destiny of Pakistan that made them send their Sons and Daughters to foreign lands for better Education. Today slowly but surely these much higher quality highly educated and trained Sons and Daughters are coming back to Pakistan. They are now taking up key decision making positions in Politics, Businesses and Land Development. You may or may not recognize most of them. They are very high quality individuals. I have met and know some of them and their work. I read about them.
