The culture of blue eyed: Favoritism erodes Pakistan’s image abroad

information

 

Officials from the Information Service Group continue their fight for their right to foreign postings, which they claim has been hijacked by the government to accommodate its blue-eyed people. After coming to power, the PML-N government decided to fill 20 per cent of the information group’s foreign postings with individuals from the private sector. However, the officials contested that these were cadre posts reserved for them under the service rules and cannot be filled by outsiders. The Islamabad High Court will again take up the matter on December 15, when the officials will argue their case through their counsel Asma Jahangir. In our view the concern of the IG officers is valid because the irrelevant outsiders having connections at the right quarters grab the top level positions for which they don’t have any experience, expertise, professional training and acumen or even the right. It is because of the obliging policy of the governments in Pakistan over the last few decades that the fuller potential of IG officers could not be exploited and as a result the country’s image abroad on the whole is in shambles. The fact is that Information is the most important service in the world and any Tom, Dick or Harry cannot handle it. In the West and particularly in the US, Information set up is tasked to pave the way abroad for the government to achieve the desired results. But in Pakistan, the real vast potential of this Service is totally ignored and the job of image building is doled out to those close to the corridors of power, in total disregard to the national interest, which is also detrimental to the morale of the professionally competent IG officers. The elders of the Information Service too could not be absolved of the responsibility of making this elite group rather lack lustre as they could not assert to get due recognition from the highest position in black and white, despite being close to the heads of the government. It is a pity that the IG Officers, having vast experience in the field of publicity and image building, are now being asked to appear in NTS test for posting abroad alongwith outsiders which is sheer humiliation and aimed at side-lining them. This practice of injustice to the in-service officers and favouritism to blue eyed should come to an end and we would urge all those who understand the importance and capacity of theInformation Service portfolio, to come forward and join hands for the promotion of positive image of Pakistan abroad.
