Bureaucracy in Pakistan

“Bureaucracy in Pakistan has become a relic. It is a place where people accept defaults without question, follow rules without explanation, and clung to traditions and technologies long after they have become obsolete. Except a few lonely wolves here and there, most people working there never question long held assumptions. Conformity is encouraged and rewarded. Anyone who comes up with innovative ideas is considered a heretic, a disrupter and a trouble-maker. The seniors, in particular, like subordinates who never challenge their authority and wisdom. Critical feedback is construed as insubordination and against the principle of esprit de corps. All this leads to inefficiency, lethargy, and rigidity.”
