Islamabad, December 25, 2020 (PPI-OT): President Dr Arif Alvi has urged the children to excel in every field of knowledge and skills by adhering to the principles of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and make the country rise. Addressing a ceremony in connection with Quaid’s birthday in Islamabad on Friday, he said great countries are built by strong and disciplined nations, which are committed to grow in every sphere of life with hard work, commitment and sincerity of purpose.
The President called upon the children to study the life of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah as to how selflessly he struggled hard for the creation of Pakistan. The President urged the parents and teachers to help build strong character of the young generation right from their earlier age as they would turn out to be the next leaders of this country.
He recalled the address of the Quaid-e-Azam on 11th of August 1947, wherein he promised that the minorities would be fully able to pursue their religions freely without any fear or persecution and the State should ensure the sanctity of places of worships like mosques, temples and churches. He said Quaid-e-Azam believed in justice for all and always stood for the oppressed and those who were weak and were being exploited.
