PM stresses peaceful coexistence as nation celebrates Quaid’s birthday

ISLAMABAD: Today, the country’s prominent political figures, including interim Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar, underscored the imperative to foster solidarity for the perpetuation of democracy, harmonious coexistence, and the rule of law on the 147th anniversary of the birth of the nation’s founder, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

The 147th birthday of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, is being commemorated with enthusiasm and devotion today.

The day began with salutes from firearms in the federal and provincial capitals, and a dignified change of the guards ceremony took place at Jinnah’s mausoleum in Karachi.

Numerous social, political, governmental, and non-governmental organizations and forums have organized special programs to celebrate the birthday of Pakistan’s founder.

Participants in these events will pay heartfelt homage to Jinnah for his unwavering efforts and visionary leadership.

Local media extensively covers these observances, highlighting Jinnah’s enduring legacy.

In a statement on the occasion, PM Kakar remarked, “Quaid-e-Azam united the Muslims under one banner to strive for the realization of a separate new Muslim state on the global map.”

Extending greetings to the nation on Jinnah’s birthday, the PM noted that the entire nation was celebrating with zeal, fervor, and reverence. He emphasized that they were fortunate to have a great leader who led the Muslims of the subcontinent to achieve a separate homeland.

“On this day, we should reaffirm our commitment to national unity and a prosperous and progressive Pakistan,” he urged.

The prime minister emphasized that Quaid-e-Azam’s principles of ‘unity, faith, and discipline’ should serve as guiding principles for the nation to realize the democratic state envisioned by its founder.

He further observed that by following the message of unity, faith, and discipline, and by making significant sacrifices, the Muslims of the subcontinent achieved their collective objective.

“Quaid’s impeccable character led the Muslims to their destination. Due to his adherence to principles, integrity, and strong faith, even his adversaries respected him,” the prime minister opined. He added that Quaid’s life reflected a constitutional struggle and political acumen.

The caretaker prime minister stressed that as a nation, it was fitting to adhere to Quaid’s principles as the best way to pay him tribute.

Quaid, in his August 11, 1947, speech, had emphasized the complete freedom of practicing faith and religion in Pakistan, noted the prime minister, urging the need to reiterate Quaid’s message of interfaith harmony.

Former Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, extending congratulations to the nation on Jinnah’s birthday, declared, “We will build Pakistan of Quaid, then Pakistan will rise once again.” Former president Asif Ali Zardari remarked that the national anthem of Pakistan reflected Quaid-e-Azam’s philosophy, stating that the source of power was the people.
