Pakistan Day, President COPAIR calls for national cohesion to combat all challenges, bring prosperity
She highlighted that the vast majority of Pakistanis are hardworking, patriotic and moderate, who wish to see our country progress and attain its rightful place in the comity of nations
President COPAIR Ms. Amna Malik in her special message stated that this day marks the adoption of the historic Lahore Resolution in 1940 that provided a framework for the realization of the goal of a separate homeland for Muslims of South Asia. She further stated that indeed it is a truly historic milestone in our nation’s quest for Independence. For it was on this day that the Muslims of South Asia resolved to carve out an independent homeland for themselves; a land where they could live in peace and harmony in accordance with the tenets of Islam, free from repression and subjugation. Adding further she mentioned that, It was the unanimous will of the Muslims of South Asia under the dynamic leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah which resulted in the creation of Pakistan. From that momentous day in 1940, our nation has come a long way Having attained independence on 14th august 1947 against seemingly insurmountable odds our country has been confronted with many challenges both external and internal in the post-independence period. The problems have indeed been many and complex. It most certainly goes to the credit of the Pakistani nation that they have always risen to the occasion and successfully overcome adversity by demonstrating patriotism, steadfastness, resilience, and unswerving faith in Almighty Allah. We are, indeed, at the crossroads of historic changes and civilizational challenges that call for a greater demonstration of national unity, inter-faith harmony, and immaculate self-discipline. We have come a long way, but there is much more to be covered. The choice, therefore, is very clear.
She further stated that the vast majority of Pakistanis are hardworking, patriotic, and moderate, who wish to see our country progress and attain its rightful place in the comity of nations. They need to stand up and be counted. She concluded that there is a need greater than ever before to demonstrate Unity, Faith, and Discipline; the guiding principles given to us by the Quaid-e-Azam. We have the solution; we have the determination and we will not fail.
