“To survive in peace and harmony, united and strong, we must have one people, one nation, one flag” -Pauline Hanson
Pakistani artists are quite concerned about the country’s well being, its success and prosperity. Though art and politics are two distinct terms but that cannot stop them from having their own political perspectives. An artist cannot keep himself away from the political situations and affairs of the country because there comes a time in every artist’s life when they have to make a decision about how they want to live. Either they want to live as an artist or as a human being! Either they will live in their own world of glamour and fame or they would march alongside the common man to fight for the nation’s right, fight to establish a better society and fight for the prosperity and better future of the country.
The political reality of Pakistan is suffocating as it is submerged in corruption, injustice and dishonesty. In such hopeless situation, PTI has managed to give hope to the people that, it’s not over. Many people especially the youth, the educated population and most celebrities and artists believe in PTI’s dream that it is possible to change the political scenario of the country and make it proud once again on the global platform.

I won’t try to tell you here who is right and who is wrong but I will tell you what I saw….beyond the politics and political parties or an agenda…..I saw something that made me realized what We are!…..I saw thousands upon thousands of people of all races, ethnicities, linguistic backgrounds and religions, people who were there and was full of peace and harmony. I saw a NATION in the crowd gathered there….for a country known in the world for chaos and violence, I see it proved that we are capable of gathering in thousands and remain peaceful and harmonious. I see it proved that we are not a mob…..but we are a nation!!!”
