Auqaf Minister calls on Usman Buzdar, discusses different matters

Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar has congratulated the nation on Pakistan Day and paid homage to Quaid-e-Azam Muhamad Ali Jinnah and leaders of the All India Muslim League who had played their role in the struggle for a separate homeland for Muslims in the subcontinent.

In his message issued on Wednesday, the CM termed it an occasion to renew unwavering love and commitment to the state of Pakistan.

March 23 will never be forgotten in the history of the Pakistan movement, he noted. This was the day when the dream of a separate homeland was laid down. Today, we are free but this freedom is the result of myriad sacrifices, struggles and hard work, he maintained, adding that if different races, tribes and sects had not resolved to become one nation, then the miracle of Pakistan would never have come to light.

The PTI-led government has laid the foundation of a new Pakistan to achieve the final destination that Quaid-e-Azam and Alama Iqbal had dreamed of, he stressed.

The journey of building a prosperous Pakistan has been going on since the creation of Pakistan in 1947 and every individual has to play his role in this regard, he commented.

The CM underscored the need to demonstrate the same unity and harmony today which was demonstrated on March 23, 1940. By embracing the resolve and passion of March 23, 1940, the government would take the motherland forward.

Meanwhile, Provincial Auqaf Minister Syed Saeed-ul-Hassan Shah called on Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office and discussed different matters.

The CM said that the people are standing with their leader PM Imran Khan and asserted that the solution to national problems lies in unity and harmony.

This land demands brotherhood, religious tolerance and interfaith harmony from all of us and everyone has to play its role in this regard, he added.

The opposition parties should realise facts as there is enough time ahead for politics; he suggested and regretted that the opposition did not refrain from negative politics even on the occasion of the OIC foreign ministers’ moot as it tried to score points on this important event.
