We have been unable to exploit our growth     potential due to distrust among the     federating units of the country. By harness     ing the potential of each province Pakistan     could become a leading global economy in a decade. Pakistan came into existence as a nation by integration of different regions speaking different languages but united on the basis of religion. In this sense Pakistan as a nation is different from Marxist definition of nation equates one language with one nationality. The four provinces of the country have distinct economic advantages. Balochistan the largest province by area is bestowed with natural resources like gas, minerals and oil. These resources have not been exploited fully because of the mistrust of the local tribes against the federal government. Pakistan could become self-sufficient in energy and could export minerals if by giving the local population their due share in the natural resources. It harbors could be developed to provide the shortest sea route to the land locked states of Central Asia. Sindh is rich both in cultural heritage and industrial infrastructure. Karachi as financial capital of the country could play a vital role in country's development only is a permanent peace based on harmony and co-existence is restored in the city. It could well become the hub of large industries in the region only if the investors are assured of full writ of the government on civic affairs and rule of law becomes a norm. Sindh's agricultural potential has been under utilized as it farms are being over watered under political pressures from vested interests. Punjab should have been the granary of the country but unfortunately we import food items worth over $4 billion annually as agricultural planners fail to boost the productivity in the province. Punjab is the hub of textile production of the country as well. Textiles account for over 63 per cent of country's exports. The Northern Punjab could well become a tourist attraction if the hill stations are upgraded and global perception about the country is improved. The North Western Province of Pakistan (NWFP) has the potential to produce most of the hydroelectric potential of 54000 MW present in the Indus water system. It is the gateway to Afghanistan and Central Asia. The development of road infrastructure and peace in the region would go a long way in making Pakistan the hub of trade transit activities in the region. The NWFP is bestowed with one of the most picturesque sites in the world. The people of hilly area are hospitable. Its locations are more charming and enchanting than Switzerland. The only drawback is that tourism as an industry has not been properly developed and the infrastructures along with reasonable hotel chains are missing from the region because terror tag attached to the area. Otherwise NWFP has the potential to earn more foreign exchange from tourism than current exports of Pakistan. The concept of nationality has been found to be less than adequate to address some major and minor concrete issues of group identification. Whenever we meet someone we tell him/her that we are Punjabi, Sindhi, Balochi, etc but we always forget that firstly we are Muslims then we are Pakistani. The processes of economic development economic integration, inter-province migration, international migration, urbanization, political alliances and integration have brought about changes in Pakistan which make the linguistic, cultural social, political and economic problems of ethnic communities exceedingly difficult to be addressed in the iron framework of the highly objectified Marxist category of nationality. The applying concept of ethnic group to the conditions of Pakistan, language would be the central defining feature of an ethnic group. In fact the distinctness of language itself is a marker of the distinctness of culture. The government of Pakistan on 23rd January 2008 has further highlighted the expanding role of the media towards national integration, by issuing satellite licenses to numerous new TV channels. Yet there are question marks whether all concerned, including the media have played an active and vigorous role to achieve the required degree of national integration. In the long turmoil of sustained national disarray, the historians shall certainly focus upon the heroic role of the media during every crisis to save the situation but it is time to ponder on whether the media could do a little more. The global environment is no longer the same as at the birth of Pakistan. The world having turned into a global village, the revolution in information technology has suddenly given a new dimension to the pivotal role of the media. Our politicians are creating provincial discriminations among the people of the Pakistan. Our media and politicians should provide a proper guidance or helpline to promote national integration. It is the duty of our media that they should not propagate such events, which create regionalism. Media should always portray our positive role rather than negative role in front of public this will help in united the nation. The minorities are living peacefully in Pakistan and are enjoying the same status as enjoyed by Muslims. This proves that the society in Pakistan is tolerant. We have excelled on minority front but unfortunately failed when it comes to tolerance among provinces, different ethnic groups or sects. The media should promote the ideology of Pakistan, which is based on Islam instead of promoting the traditions and customs of other religion. As we see Iraq and Palestine matters CNN, BBC and other western media do broadcast miseries of Iraqi and Palestinians people but upper hand will be given to American and Israel or the policies of which are being implemented instructed by the two governments but if we see the role of our media the coverage of the events happening in Iraq or Palestine is usually ignored. In the end I can only say that we remain united as Pakistani instead of Punjabi, Sindhi, Balochi, Saraiki etc.
