You know, when one "reads" a statement like this, it is sooooo far from reality as to be meaningless. "anyone" it says in the article ANY ONE... I do not think it is down to any one individual. The things that are preventing Pakistan's youth carving a future are "institutions" that prevent education - to use the words of Mao Zedong "Women hold up half the sky". Not in Pakistan Mr Mao!. I don't need to list them, a few people know only too well what they are, including the Government. The rest of the people vary enormously in their political and ideological awareness.. Why? Because so few people in Pakistan are fully educated - by design - It is tragic. If Pakistan ever figures a way to crush these dark forces, educate it's youth - look out world we will have a new and powerful Pakistan. I doubt very much you need an "Arab Spring" the answer I hope lies in politics and dialogue Warm Regards
