There has existed throughout the history of mankind a strange, albeit, an ironic relationship between the past and the future. The people who just eulogize their past without critical analysis and seek to recreate a utopian past almost invariably do not succeed, while those who view the past realistically, comprehensively and critically are able to draw on the past in useful, meaningful and lasting ways. They learn lessons from the history and apply those lessons for better future. Such people have in their future, and they approach the past with seriousness and critical reverence. They study the past realistically, try to comprehend the values, aesthetics, and traits which invested an earlier civilization its grandeur or caused it to decline. They preserve its remains, and enshrine relevant and enriching images and events of the past in their memories both collectively and individually. They attempt to adopt the values and traits which led earlier people rise, and shun the reasons and mistakes that precipitated their downward journeys. In sharp contrast to them, people and governments with an uncertain sense of the future manifest deeply skewed and subjective relationships to their history. They eschew lived history, shut out its lessons, shun critical inquiries into the past, neglect its remains but, at the same time, invent at their own imagined and toplan past-always shining, splendid and glorious. As a matter of fact, they are never able to benefit from their past. They study history, but learn nothing from history confidence

Q. No. 9: Translate the following passage into English. (15 Marks)

تاریخ گواہ ہے کہ پاکستانی قوم نے ہمیشہ جرات اور بہادری سے ہر چیلنج کا مقابلہ کیا ہے ہے اور اللہ کے فضل سے ہمیشہ سرخرو ہوئی ہے ۔ دہشت گردی کے مقابلے میں پوری قوم نے جس طرح اپنی مسلح افواج اور قانون نافذ کرنے والے اداروں کا ساتھ دیا وہ اپنی مثال آپ ہے اور مسلح افواج اور دیگر اداروں کے نوجوانوں نے اپنی جان کی قربانی دے کر دہشت گردی کو جس طرح شکست دی وہ سنہری حروف سے لکھنے کے قابل ہے ۔ اللہ کے فضل سے آج ملک میں امن قائم ہوچکا ہے ۔ توانائی کی حالت بہتر ہے ۔ ملک میں پانی کے نئے ذخائر بن رہے ہیں۔ ملکی معیشت دن بدن مضبوط ہو رہی ہے ہے ہمسائے ممالک خاص طور پر عرب ممالک کے ساتھ تعلقات روز بروز بہتر ہو رہے ہیں ۔ آج پاکستان خطے میں باوقار، مضبوط پر امن اور ترقی کرتے ہوئے ملک کی حیثیت سے ابھر رہا ہے ۔ انشاءاللہ پاکستان کا مستقبل روشن ہے۔
