Programme arranged regarding to Death Anniversary of Quaid-e-Azam
Islamabad: “Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was a great leader of 20th century. He won a free homeland for Muslims of India and defeated colonial powers and Hindu majority with his principled stand and untiring struggle”, this was said by Ambassador of Pakistan, Mr. Jamil Ahmed Khan while addressing a large gathering of Pakistani community at a programme arranged in the Embassy in connection with 63rd death anniversary of Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, says a press release received here today from Dubai.
He said the most befitting way to pay tribute to the Father of the Nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was to follow his golden principles of unity, faith and discipline. He elaborated the three principles of the Quaid and highlighted their importance in making Pakistan a strong and prosperous state.
Quaid-e-Azam had given vision of Pakistan as a democratic welfare state where people could live with peace, love, fraternity and harmony, he said. He urged Pakistani community members to forge unity among their ranks and work hard for the progress and prosperity of the country.
The Quaid envisioned Pakistan to be a country where there would be social justice and economic opportunities for all, he said. Now, when the country is hit by severe floods, ensuring social justice demands that every member of Pakistani community must step forward and play his role in alleviating the sufferings of the flood victims, he added.
On this day, we should also pay tribute to those who laid down their lives and rendered huge sacrifices for the achievement of Pakistan as well for preserving democracy, he said.
