In recent years it has been observed that many educated and well to do Pakistanis have acquired foreign nationalities and properties abroad. Pakistan is an idealogical state. A citizen can't share two ideologies that conflict. A natural clash of interest exists if people maintain two nationalities. No two states share common goals, values, beliefs and territory.
The ruling elite in Pakistan face a dilemma. They enjoy power and a life of privilege here but are concerned about the future. Parliamentarians (Law makers), Businessmen, Professionals and Bureaucrats have all sought to live a life abroad by acquiring a foreign passport or have stashed their wealth overseas.
Social welfare system is in tatters. Many believe that the founding fathers of Pakistan envisioned it to be a welfare state, but their dream stands broken. Basic amenities and services are unavailable to the poor and the needy.
Even the rich and middle class feel marginalized. The system virtually excludes everyone. Even those who superficially run the show. The lack of social welfare has resulted in very loose bonding with state. The rule of law is absent. It is believed that the law is applied to different people differently. Blatant abuses of law are scattered in the press everyday. The feudal system is distorting the very face of the state that claims to be democratic. Thus the canons of equality and justice are nullified and strong voices of society raise slogans to end this but to no avail.
Thus many today have sought to lead a better life for themselves abroad. Others seek a foreign passport so that they they can flee persecution. Other to avoid prosecution.
