Message from Ambassador Munir Akram, Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the United Nations, on Quaid-e-Azam’s Birth Anniversary and Christmas
Islamabad, December 25, 2020 (PPI-OT): On this Christmas Day I wish everyone a very happy and joyous holiday season. This Christmas has come at the end of a difficult year for all humanity. While we celebrate in this festive season, we must be thankful for the Almighty’s beneficence and be kind and generous to those who are grieving and suffering amongst us, says a press release received here today from New York. For us in Pakistan, this day is all the more significant as it is also the birth anniversary of our founding father, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. He was one of the greatest statesmen of the modern age. His integrity, commitment and vision inspired a nation to wage a peaceful struggle to gain independence from colonial rule and communal domination.
The Quad e Azam singlehandedly reshaped the map of South Asia and transformed the dream of an independent homeland for the Muslims of the sub-continent into the tangible reality of Pakistan. On his 144th birth anniversary, all Pakistanis, at home and abroad, must live up to his call for unity, faith and discipline and renew the collective commitment to realize the Quaid’s purpose of making Pakistan a progressive, advanced and welfare state which guarantees a secure future for all its citizens and protects the rights of the weak and vulnerable in Pakistan and of those who are oppressed in any part of the world.
