Ahmad Salman Khan

Pity the nation whose servants treat their solemn oathsas nothing more than a formality before entering upon an office

Pity the nation that elects a leader as a redeemerbut expects him to bend every law to favour his benefactors

Pity the nation whose leaders seek martyrdom through disobeying the lawthan giving sacrifices for the glory of lawand who see no shame in crime

Pity the nation that achieves nationhood in the name of a religionbut pays little heed to truth, righteousness and accountabilitywhich are the essence of every religion
