Message of Muhammad Nawaz Sharif Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on the Occasion of Pakistan Day 23rd March, 2014)
Islamabad, March 23, 2014 (PPI-OT): Today, we are commemorating the 74th anniversary of the adoption of the historical Pakistan Resolution. This day reminds us of the vision of Allama Iqbal, historic struggle, immense sacrifices and firm resolve of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and the Muslims of the subcontinent in search of a separate homeland to live in peace and fashion their lives according to their own belief and culture.
March 23 is a milestone in the history of Pakistan when the Muslims of the Indian sub-continent passed the historic Lahore Resolution in the 27th annual meeting of All-India Muslim League. This Resolution gave a clear objective to the Muslims and united them for the attainment of a shared goal.
Countless people have given their blood to kindle the light of freedom and millions had to leave their homes to attain this purpose. Our elders sacrificed their present for the sake of preserving our future. Today, we remember our forefathers and pay our gratitude to them for making extraordinary sacrifices to give us an identity. The sacrifices laid down by the founding fathers of the country demand that every effort should be made for achieving the objectives of Quaid-e-Azam’s vision.
I reckon, as a leader of founding party of Pakistan, the responsibility to solve the problems Pakistan has been facing, lies more on our shoulders.
People of Pakistan have expressed their confidence in PML-N in 2013 elections and our government is committed to implement its reform and development oriented manifesto throughout the country in letter and spirit.
Pakistan is passing through a critical stage in the history; however, the resilient nation has braved the daunting challenges with the spirit of one nation.
On this day, we pledge that no effort will be spared to ensure respectable status for the country in the comity of the nations. Pakistan is our identity that we have earned through immense sacrifices.
Our government is committed to preserve our great cultural heritage and national identity and to making our earnest efforts for bringing about economic and social revival in Pakistan.
I pray to Allah Almighty to enable us to protect Pakistan and put it on the road of progress and prosperity. (Ameen)
