-

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Prime Minister Imran Khan has underlined the need to adhere to the principles of Unity, Faith, and Discipline given by Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

In his message on the occasion of Pakistan Day, the prime minister said that 23rd March 1940 was a momentous occasion when the Muslims of the Sub-Continent decided to establish a separate homeland to free themselves from the shackles of oppression and slavery of the Hindutva mindset.

“Today, we pay tribute to the Father of the Nation and all the leaders of the Independence Movement who united Muslims of British India and struggled for the creation of a free and independent Muslim State,” he said.

“The struggle culminated in the emergence of Pakistan on the map of the World on 14th August 1947.”

Imran Khan reiterated that our vision is to transform Pakistan into a truly democratic welfare State on the model of Riyasat-e-Madina.

“Today, let us renew our commitment to make Pakistan a humane, progressive, and prosperous state akin to Riyasat-e-Madina based on rule of law, meritocracy, egalitarianism, and compassion,” he said.

The prime minister said that our great nation has successfully overcome challenges of immense magnitude in the past through unity and resilience. He emphasized that today, we need to remain strong to face the COVID-19 pandemic that has engulfed the entire World.

“May Almighty Allah grant us the strength to remain steadfast during all testing times,” Imran Khan said. “InshaAllah, we will succeed in these testing times.”

The prime minister also said that on this day, we also express solidarity with the innocent people of the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) who have been subjected to the worst form of state oppression by the Indian security forces.

“We salute their courage and will continue to support them morally, politically, and diplomatically for the realization of their right to self-determination under relevant UN Security Council resolutions,” he said.
