Islamabad, September 11, 2013 (PPI-OT): The observance of death anniversary of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah on September 11 each year is the occasion for the nation to renew our commitment to those principles of democracy, constitutionalism and egalitarianism that the Father of the nation propounded throughout his life.
The day is an occasion for us to reflect as to how far we have measured up to the expectations of our Quaid and how far we have been successful in achieving those objectives that led to the creation of the state.
The need to follow the principles of ‘Unity, Faith and Discipline’ was never as great as it is today. Faced with various challenges including the threat from the militant mindset, economic challenges and poverty etc we need to follow those principles, in letter and spirit, that our great Quiad wanted us to follow.
Our Quaid was a leader of unmatched qualities of uprightness, honesty, integrity and unflinching courage of conviction. A staunch believer and advocate of the democratic ideals, he believed in constitutionalism and egalitarianism.
On his death anniversary therefore the best way to pay homage to the Quaid is to reiterate our adherence to those principles that were pursued by our Quaid and for which Pakistan was created. Let us on this day reiterate to stand united in confronting all challenges that we face. Let us continue striving together for strengthening of a democratic, moderate and egalitarian system in this country.
On this day, I call upon the nation to also pay homage to all those who have made valuable contributions towards the state and upholding the ideals of Quaid. May Quiad’s soul rest in eternal peace. Ameen.
