Suggestion to regain PRIDE in sport of Pakistan

ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM! to all “Sports” lover in Pakistan!
The present condition of sports in Pakistan specially in the sports in which we used to rule the world, Cricket, Hockey, Squash and Snooker is extremely heart breaking, we had in 1994 season 4 world cups in the mentioned sports now we are struggling in all of them, because at the grass root level our sports is neglected very badly.

So I request the honorable sports minister to ask President and Prime Minister of Pakistan to make it mandatory that all schools either have playground in them or if they are made on small plot then they have to make a hall or room in which children can play indoor sports like squash or snooker, and government teams can visit any school to check these facilities and children do play there, if they don’t find such facilities then that school should be charges heavily.
By doing such things government can introduce sports and healthy activity at the grass root level and therefore we can achieve our past glories.

Recent but expected debacle in London 2012 Olympics:

It was expected but it’s embarrassing at the same time the way 6th most populous nation in the world i.e. Pakistan not able to win a single Olympic medal since 1992, and the graph of sports hitting new low every time, it’s hard to believe that we used to had 4 world cups in different sports at the same in mid nineties.
Pakistan’s very slim of slimmest hope field hockey was shown mirror in a must win match against Australia by losing to harrowing 7-0 defeat. 

This situation will not change as long as our players after coming last says: After finishing last said, ‘I’m happy with my performance because I was able to improve …’- Anam Banday (wild-card entrant) was she going in Olympics to improve her personal best????

Why not Pakistan Olympic Association give Wildcard entries to sports where Pakistan has excelled in the past and has a potential of excelling in the future like Boxing, Wrestling, Aisam ul Haq in Tennis etc why they waste wildcards on sports and people who finished last like Anam Banday, Rabia Ashiq or one of the last ones like other wildcards shooter and other swimmer, they are doing nothing but maligning Pakistan's image in sports as well.

Lt General (Retd) Syed Arif Hasan was re-elected as the ‘President of the Pakistan Olympic Association for the third consecutive four-year term, now tell me how much medals Pakistan won under him? Why he was elected for the 3rd consecutive term, is there any merit for selection in Pakistan??? Bad leadership is also behind bad performances.
